So, are you happy or stressed with the return of pro sports?
Are you amped up to know that you can finally watch your favorite teams battling for a championship title?
Or that all the free time that you’ve used to be more active to stay healthy during a global pandemic will now disappear.
For many sports fans, the fact that they can’t attend live sports events doesn’t make a difference – they’re just ready to go.
Those who make a living working in the various industries related to sport – collegiate and pro – are looking forward to getting back to doing their jobs.
There is renewed excitement for the positives that the accumulation of sports statistics will provide to counter-balance the sobering daily numbers that the Coronavirus produces.
From the larger perspective, no athletic activities will replace the loss that thousands have endured, but a daily win or two by a favorite team may strengthen the hope and resolve that more and bigger wins will eventually come – in sports and in life.
A few thoughts for what that can mean living through the Covid-19 era of sports.
