Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower is opting out.

Edit: running back Brandon Bolden is too. That makes 5 Pats opting out.

Tonight’s Yankees-Phillies game has also been postponed. Phillies players are still waiting for test results.

Ohio State requiring masks for FB and a max of 20% capacity in the stadium. I really want to see what the SEC teams do.

Nationals players vote to not play in Miami this weekend.

Too bad Dandy Don is not here to sing Turn out the lights the party is over for MLB.

The Miami Marlins season is “paused” at least through the weekend. The Yankees who are marooned in Philly will postpone all 4 games against the Phillies and travel to Baltimore to play the Orioles. The Marlins were supposed to have an off day next Monday, but that could be used to make up postponed games against the Orioles or Nationals, while the Yankees and Phillies could make up 2 of their 4 postponed games.

Honestly ... MLB (and the USL to a lesser extent) are the first in North America to try resumption of play without a "bubble" and this HAD to be at least somewhat expected. Their risk of exposure is exponentially higher than NWSL, MLB, NBA or NHL operating in a semi-controlled environment.

Big kudos to the ladies in NWSL for getting all the way through the Challenge Cup without a single problem ... after Orlando's big cluster before things even got started, of course. It was high level soccer too ... and the ratings were really good for CBS. Great tournament.

The city of Toronto and the Peel Region (Brampton and Mississauga, not Tim) will be allowed to enter Phase 3 on Friday. I doubt this will have any practical effect on the NHL bubble though.

One of the fair 'fried stuff and soft serve' places has been setting up in SW Wake county and selling things in anticipation of there being no Fairs. THey were out by Kildare Farm Rd/Ten Ten road for a while, they are actually going to be in my neighborhood pool parking lot this coming weekend. Just what I don't need! (I'm sure I will partake anyway...)
