The tropical storm that came last week wasn’t too bad. We had some rain and wind, but it could have been worse. The rain on Wednesday was worse. The chicken coop got flooded and my wife had to bring the chickens into the house. I’ll post some pictures at the end of this post.
Some states are seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases. Well I say some, but I know of two that are having a spike in cases. I’m just hoping a second wave of cases does not happen.
The NHL, if all goes well, will be restarting at the end of July. I am looking forward to all sports starting back up. I just am hoping that they will be able to restart the season and complete it.
The past 24 hours have been eventful to say the least (in the sports world). First a NBA game was postponed then shortly after the NBA season was postponed to begin with today’s games. Then the Pelicans game was postponed because one of the refs worked a Utah Jazz game. And that is the team that has a player infected with COVID-19.
The NBA shares arenas with the NHL. And in some cases they share locker rooms. So today the NHL postponed the rest of the season. They still hope to award the Stanley Cup this season. I hope life turns back to normal ASAP. I hope this virus just dies out and goes away.
To be honest I don’t know what to make of all the events being canceled. I understand why all theses events are being canceled. But these decisions affect more than just the people involved in the event being canceled. For example, canceled sporting events cause people who work for the arena to lose out on an opportunity to make money. It’s possible that they only have one job and now it’s gone and they don’t know when they will get back to work.
Even in times like this, God is good!
Update: The NCAA has canceled all spring championship tournaments. This includes the men’s and women’s Final Four and Frozen Four. Major League Baseball has also canceled the rest of spring training and postponed opening day.
I am still here in Pittsburg and I just got back from a NHL game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins. For those of you who do not know I love hockey and my favorite team is Tampa Bay! We had great seats! I had so much fun with my father-in-law and brother-in-law. And to top it off Tampa Bay won 5-4 in a shoot out!
