Yes, it sucks that this player and that player have opted out of playing football.  But I don’t blame them in the least.

Yes, it sucks that almost the entire Florida Marlins team has tested positive for coronavirus.  But what did you expect with playing baseball in Coronaland, FL?

Yes, it sucks that sports fans can’t spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on tickets to go see their favorite team play in person.  Think of all the money you’re saving.

Not having sports in the “normal” sense is not the end of the world.  It really isn’t.  Would you prefer all these high-paid athletes got sick so badly that they could no longer play?  Or worse.  Died?

So give the players who opt out of playing a break.  Personally I feel none of the sports teams should be playing.  They couldn’t have the Olympics this year.  All the college athletes are missing out.  So why should there be any kind of professional sports going on?



I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
