Football on Thur night...Chiefs 34 over Texans 20......
Where are we at with sports right now????
Tennis is back -- first major wrapping up this weekend.
Golf (womens/mens) -- men have one major in the book, and the 2nd (US Open) kicks off next week. women are wrapping up their 2nd major today.
NBA - playoff bubble in full effect
NHL - playoff bubble in full effect
NFL - kicked off Thursday - with fans in attendance
NCAA football - kicked off yesterday with fans in attendance
MLB - rolling forward towards their playoff bubble
Have definitely missed sports - some more than others!
Don't forget NASCAR. It has been back all summer and is now the ONLY professional sport I can watch unless you count MMA. It was the first to come back and this coming week will be the 3rd race of their playoffs under the lights at Bristol with a limited amount of fans.
After a short stint of apologizing on behalf of their fans (LOL), NASCAR is finally back to focusing on the action. They have lost hundreds of thousands of fans for multiple different choices they have made this summer...But nothing compared to how many the NBA, NFL and MLB are losing in terms of %.
If the Big 10 comes back then that will give me one more to watch...fingers crossed!!!
Big Ten is kinda back....
While I'm thrilled with at least an attempt here is my concern.
The restrictions that have been put in place will make it nearly impossible to complete a full season for any team. Specifically: 5% positive rate or more on those tested for the team and 21 day quarantine for individuals?!?!
Even the CDC doesn't recommend 21 days! 5% is just a handful or less of positive tests. The false positive rate alone could easily get you to that number.
I fear the presidents and commissioner have put these crazy restrictions in place so at the end of it they can say..."We tried, don't blame us".
Not going to say I am good at this type of prognostication, but someone called this match at 4&3 a little over a week ago. Definitely fun to watch. Curry/Manning never able to get a clutch shot or putt when they needed it. Charles absolutely surprised me with both his swing and his soft touch around the green. Also loved the fact that they were playing for charity and a lot of good organizations benefitted from the match.Completely forgot about the upcoming Mickelson/Barkley v. Manning/Curry matchup. In my humble opinion, you gotta take the best player in this situation, which is Phil, regardless that he is teamed with Barkley. As long as it is straight better ball and no alternate shot, I think they win it rather easily, like 4&3.
