Given we are in the midst of a global pandemic, you make ask yourself – why should I care about sports?
A simple trip to the grocery store can induce crippling anxiety.
The news is a constant cycle of hopelessness.
Leadership stateside, is let’s just say questionable.
We’ll debate politics when (if) this is all over during 2020, already one of the worst years in recent memory.
For now it come down to waiting desperately in seclusion.

“Adapt or die” has never held more significance.
That is why a wholesome distraction such as sports is therapeutic.
With the global news consumed by COVID-19 the world turns to outlets such as ESPN, the “Worldwide Leader” for some normalcy.
We should be enjoying a different kind of March Madness right now.
Opening Day in Major League Baseball.
Meaningful NBA and NHL games as the Heat and Panthers fight for postseason position.
All now an illusion, a mirage when seems as distant as when you could say hello to your neighbor.
And shake their hand.
The NFL Draft is moving ahead as planned, sort of.

It will happen in a way we have never seen before.
We can’t wait!
Fill out your mock drafts until your hearts are content.
Even if they are unconventional, or irrational.
Enjoy a newfound camaraderie with fellow sports fans.
Maybe even reach out to your favorite athletes and say hi.
Well.. giving out your number can be a bit interesting.. but I love it! I have thousands of texts, but I’m doing my best to reply to all of them! If you reached out, please tweet me here and let me know your first and last name if I haven’t replied! 🙏🏼🤝🔨
