I was never into watching men play with their balls, so this part of it isn't affecting me.

Now everybody knows what it's like to be a cycling fan in the United States.

Horse racing is still going for now. You can watch and bet on the computer, but can't go to the track.

I'm not much for the sportsball. Was considering ordering Sling for March Madness like last year, but now don't need to.

Even crazier, the D3 men's basketball tournament had already gotten underway. Fri/Sat Mar 6-7 the first two rounds were played. I watched over streaming my alma mater get beat (star got injured, the rest of the team took it to double overtime) in an empty gym (teams and press only). I also watched a game streamed from OH with a full gym. Also my team lost there, so I had nobody left to root for anyways.

Good reminder though, that sports is just games. Maybe America's obsession with sports will come back a little more moderated and sane.

I was hoping to catch some live racing this weekend, as I have family coming to town. But, the racing is out and the trip for the others is up in the air.

I lump pro sports in with all entertainment. All in person entertainment is taking a huge hit right now.

I think I’m going to fill up aluminum cans with water and shoot them with my BB gun. Hours of cheap entertainment.

Got any relatives in FL or GA? Cuz that sounded very "windy-esque".

No, I think some of my relatives are from Mars. I guess I will just ride my bike this afternoon.

BBs. Probably the only ammo not being horded at all right now.

So unmotivated I need a boost. I know the first 30 minutes I will be like broken down truck but then it will kick in. Slam one of these down before I go.
