Vince McMahons head doesn’t look like it belongs with that body. Like his head is obviously too small and tanned to go with that super wide pinstripe torso, like a reverse Pez dispencer.

Elon Musk went on Joe Rogan saying covid19 is ten timeless dangerous than what is being said and that people should be capable of doing what they want because freedom blablabla. Like a guy said there, he cant play with his rockets without his workers. He might be going mad.

Testing capacities are not at their limit here in Germany, which is one reason why the Bundesliga (Highest Soccer League in Germany) has resumed its competition without audience in the stadiums last week, with german basketball soon to follow. For these leagues, continuing without viewers makes more sense financially than not playing at all, and they have a testing and quarantine system in place quite similar to what Dr. Fauci suggested. Still, it's important to keep in mind that many leagues, for example the handball and ice hockey main leagues in germany, rely heavily on audience revenue because they do not earn as much from TV rights, so they are, to put it mildl,y absolutely screwed right now.

Spencer Littlewood 4 hrs · Sports and other things after COVID-19: Each Stadium seat will have Perspex walls around it to prevent viral infection. Face scanners, will detect your temperature at entrances, and if you have any signs of any illness, you will not be admitted to public places, Such as underground railways, train stations, cinemas, stadiums, concert halls, and shopping malls. even shops, bars and restaurants, will have Perspex shields between the customer and the staff. Restaurants will also be shielded with Perspex, a little bit like when you go visit somebody in prison. It is even possible that such mass open air gatherings such as sport stadium and concert stadium events will become a thing of the past, and Virtual Reality will become the alternative, and we will live like in the movie 'Surrogates' with Bruce plum in cheek Willis. We could play badminton in VR together, or even have skin sensor suits and have sex together on Mars or some fantasy world in Virtual Reality space. Virtual Stadiums will be designed in 3d and virtual seats will be sold with better or worse views of the action for differing prices.. The players will suit up at home on running rubber circular moving belts and play with their team from home on the virtual pitch, and the virtual viewers will cheer through their headset microphones, we could even add firework displays at button push in VR. Now THAT'S Social Distancing at the highest level. Action Replay or recording could be activated, or even 'look through the eyes of a certain player' by public sharing of his headset camera video stream live on the pitch. BE Christiano Ronaldo! Governments took advantage of 9/11 to make stricter security laws and the people willingly accepted instead of complaining, and they will use the pandemic to to make new public hygiene laws and catapult the removal of people gathering together en masse, for we are many, and the ruling forces are few, and they fear us. Sport will not Die, but the sports we enjoy will be virtual, be it live VR real people physically playing with their whole body, or a team of kids with joysticks on a playstation mass major league competition of online gamestreaming.

Since the pandemic began I've been waiting for Last Week Tonight to do a deep-dive exposé piece of WHO à la your legendary FIFA episode. But now seeing that even in this 20-min piece solely on sports you once again failed to mention how Taiwan has basically overcome this whole crisis and maintained its professional league sports events while broadcasting them multilingually around the world, it's become clear that you're never gonna do one on WHO's failure, because you're essentially the same suck-up to big international powers like China and internationalist corporations. Keep doing your Adam Driver bit and your SLAPP lawsuit parody numbers and your sponsorship for the marble race and your HBO or AT&T jokes, because that's all you can do.

I would have paid to sit on the Zoom call where John pitched this idea to the HBO execs and had to ask for the money to do it. I thought they’d cut his budget after he made the largest sheet cake ever, but nope, now he’s sponsoring a marble racing league race.

Why I understand Mike Trouts point, it really falls on death ears with many people including myself. Essential workers such as myself and millions of other Americans still have to go to work everyday and still have families to take care of. Most, if not all essential workers are not paid millions of dollars, so we can not quarantine from our families, and pay a nanny or housekeeper to take care of the household. A simple solution should be since, sports and the players and support staff are not essential workers. No employee and or athlete should be forced to show up to work. Also zero repercussions, and their current position should be held for them. Mike trout also needs to realize that his millions of dollars is only their because of the fans, and many Americans can really use the distraction. No pressure though it should be 100% his decision, and their really shouldn't be any ill will. This current season and next season is a kinda of a wash anyways.

to be honest on my gamestreamer tv channel i streamed a Barca-Madrid game against the PS4 a.i. - at least a few hundred people watched the game. Ended very exciting on penalties. And then i watched about 5 Football Games on Twitch played by teams of expert gamers.. SPORT ISNT DEAD, WE CAN STILL PLAY ON GAME PLATFORMS, AND WATCH AND ENJOY. The same level of skill is needed, simply not physical muscle skill... brain and dexterity and teammwork

From Kurt Vonnegut's book Hocus Pocus: [my lawyer] asked me yesterday why it was that I never swore. He found me washing windows in this library, although nobody had ordered me to do that. So I told my my maternal grandfather's idea that obscenity and blasphemy gave most people permission not to listen respectfully to whatever was being said. I repeated an old story Grandfather Wills had taught me, which was about a town where a cannon was fired at noon every day. One day the cannoneer was sick at the last minute and was too incapacitated to fire the cannon. So at high noon there was silence. All the people in the town jumped out of their skins when the sun reached its zenith. They asked each other in astonishment, "Good gravy! What was that?" My lawyer wanted to know what that had to do with my not swearing. I replied that in an era as foul mouthed as this one, "Good gravy" had the same power to startle as a cannon shot.

I would feel sorry for the athletes hurt by Covid 19 but they are also the same cocksuckers that berated and picked on my as a kid, so fuck 'em as that have had this coming. Karma is a bitch. Same sentiment goes for cruise ships and passenger airlines : you're all too expensive, exploitative, mediocre and polluting so please die soon!

<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="960">16:00</a> And that level of insanity is what I feel when regular people talk about face mask wearing in public. You have no idea how insanely easy it is to undo the protection you are wearing on the face. Its not safer, its another degree of worse. Because, the general public has no idea how to use masks properly and reduce their chances of infection. Improper use, and changed behavior leads to more infection risks, reducing the impact of mask wearing to near 0.
