They are talking about moving it to November---an Autumnal Masters....hhhmmmm.....

One of the things we most enjoy about watching the Masters is the beautiful course - it's in full spring before we are here. Fall might make for a very pretty course, if it happens of course, and I don't think at this point it will :(

I think it is doable without fans. Golfers and caddies should be able work out ways to maintain distance.

The NRL suspended their season after Round 2, because it was simply unworkable to continue. Now they are desperately working to get the season back underway on July 1. I am hesitant about this because I do not think this will be over by then, but the code is in financial trouble if they don't and some clubs may not even survive that long.

The coach of last year's premiers (who "beat" my team in extremely controversial circumstances, and who no-one really likes) has been pushing for the points earned in the first two rounds to be scrapped. Of course, his team did not win in either round. Naturally, the fans/coaches/everyone involved with the teams who did (including my team) are outraged and pushing back on the proposal.

The sports channels are replaying old games for now, and doing lots of analysis. On the weekend they rebroadcast the 1989 Grand Final, but with commentary as-though-live from current commentators. It was a lot of fun!

Every year they show old Indy 500's the week before the race (NBCSN). This year when there is no new race, they haven't shown any. How stupid. So I've been getting my Indy fix watching The Race All Star Series. It's simulated Indy/Formula One racers and people who only do the simulated racing. I don't know how they do it. They show the cars on the track and camera views from the cars. And various people sitting in their simulators down in the corner. If there is a wreck, the car disappears from the race. I've been talking to it just like I do Indy. And one of the announcers will say something right after I do. There's another one on next Saturday at noon on ESPN.

I did that once in one of those car racing games at Dave and Buster's. And I won against my boyfriend. The seat vibrated and tilted. It doesn't on the t.v. thing. I'd throw up if I tried to do that these days.

"Golf titans Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are set to partner up with NFL superstars Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in a charity golf match which will raise money for the fight against c-v."

As I do housework I am watching golf and not interested in golf but it is live and Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are part of this charity tournament and I may not get to see them with a football this year so I’d better enjoy them now. How’s that for a run-on sentence?

The Japan Sumo Association said Monday it will allow spectators to attend its July grand tournament in Tokyo despite a recent rise in the number of people infected with the novel ******** in the Japanese capital.
The association decided at an extraordinary board meeting to admit about 2,500 fans a day into the tournament at Tokyo's Ryogoku Kokugikan, set to open on July 19.
"By conducting antibody tests for members and establishing guidelines (against the *****), we decided we could welcome spectators safely and hold the July tournament," JSA Chairman Hakkaku said in a statement.
The 15-day meet, which was delayed by two weeks from its original schedule, was moved from Nagoya, central Japan, to the capital to limit travel during the *********. Many sumo stables are based in Tokyo.

Normally, I would be drooling over the college football season's arrival. Not looking too good in that direction right now.

So, instead, we are catching as many pro-hockey games as we can. 😁

All the Olympic qualifier events. Track and field. Gymnastics. And the Summer Olympics. I planned to take the week off so I could watch my favorite events. Nope. Here I am at home, watching nothing.

💯 My thoughts exactly. Until then, time to catch up on whatever needs to be caught up on - or perhaps read a good book, listen to some music, maybe take a nap or two, and, more importantly, have healthy, happy thoughts, etc., etc.

Tennis is on! It's happening. And Serena Williams is fighting for the win as always. Exciting.

Yippee. The IBU has figured out a way to have a World Cup series this year. The first races are at Kontiolahti starting 28 November. Fingers crossed!

Will be so weird not to have Fourcade but looking forward to it too. Alpine skiing and ski jumping are also set to resume. Here’s hoping it can be done safely.

Warning to those trying to DVR the biathlon this weekend. Because they’re staying in Kontiolahti, the listings are very confused and my TiVo thinks Thursday’s sprints are repeats of last Sunday’s. Best to double check.

Well, well, well. The French are back! Men’s biathlon so far has been very exciting. 4 different Norwegians, 3 young winners, and today, QFM wins.
