MLB, NBA Foul Out During Covid Crisis

The MLB, NBA leagues ought to be ashamed of themselves.

The leauges want their season to resume, despite Covid 19 cases increasing.

Baseball is getting ready to open the season in a couple of weeks, the NBA is gearing up too.

Several sports teams, leagues, schools cancelled their seasons after many governors issued stay at home orders.

The stay-at-home orders were put in place to combat the spread of the covid-19 virus.

What the leagues are doing is not only selfish, but irresponsible too.

There’s a reason why there’s stay home orders, many practicing social distancing. 

This virus is affecting 3,000,000 prople and claimed over 100,000+ of our fellow Americans lives.

We all want to get back to work, see our economy strong again.

 We all want to venture out to be with loved ones and watch sports together again.

We all want to get back to being somewhat normal, but not right now.

 What if one of the players, one of their family members or team staff has the virus, what then?

What if athletes are screened but wind up being asymptomatic?

Are leagues going to do testing for everybody?

How are they going to keep everybody safe?

How is that going to affect teams in the future? 

What if there’s a second wave & it’s much worse than the one were are in now.

 Is it worth putting others at risk, nope it’s not.

They canceled: Wimbledon, the Belle Grand Prix, Stanley Cup finals, the Kentucky Derby until September, the Olympics until 2021.

Why can’t they cancel the baseball season.

 Keep everybody safe, cancel the damn season!

Someday everything will be open again, many will gather together and root for their team.

Until then, wash your hands, wear a mask, stay home when you can, and be safe all.
