RIP sports for the next eight weeks…
If someone were to tell you a few months back that all sporting events would cease to exist and everyone would be quarantining in their homes for the foreseeable future, to say you would be confused would be an understatement.
But that is our reality as of today, and will be for the next eight weeks after The Center for Disease Control has announced a country-wide recommendation of no gatherings of more than 50 people in the wake of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic outbreak.
Important development for sport throughout the country: The CDC just announced it is recommending NO gatherings of 50+ people in the United States for the next EIGHT weeks

States like Florida have already mandated the suggestion.
The NBA, NHL, MLB, XFL, MLS, UEFA and others have put their seasons on hold due to the virus, and even after the eight week time frame, will likely be played without fans.
