    Well damn! I was planning on taking my family down to Calgary to catch a lacrosse game, but the NLL has suspended their season.

    Re: Coronavirus and Sports

    My vacations usually consist of camping events, but I cashed in my air miles for a flight and booked the end of May off so I could come see my first ever Eskimo's training camp live. I'm starting to wonder what the situation is gonna be like in a couple months - better or worse?

    My guess is that if they act now, things will be back to normal within a few months. I was living in Toronto during SARS, and the biggest impact was about a month, and then things started to resume back to normal slowly after that.

    Hockey is gone.

    I guess this is the only entertainment we've got to look forward to now:

    Keep an open mind, and you never know who might walk in...

    Down here in the Hat, we were scheduled to have 5500+ come to our venue for Brad Paisley tonight. Nope. Doors are locked, and we're preparing to take the ice out next week. Not likely the WHL will be coming back until the fall.

    Even if Canada manages to flatten our curve and gets things under control within a couple months, gotta figure that the NHL isn't coming back this season because the US and their amazing leadership is screwing things up so badly.

    I'll bet a nickel that the NHL finishes the season and playoffs. I don't believe this"we're going to be self-isolating until September" stuff one bit. None of the data backs it up. I'll be back in my office by June at the latest.

    I’ve started following the cutthroat world of marble racing.

    It’s actually quite entertaining and marbles can’t get sick......yet.

    Sounds like it could become quite addictive. Just be careful you don't "lose your marbles."

    Marbula One!

    That’s the one my family has been watching. We each drafted a team and watch it every weekend to get some sort of sports fix.

    It’s also quite well produced.

    I really enjoy The Voice through "the blinds". Not so much on everything after.
    ... but at least there is competition. Vegas probably has lines on it
