No Sports Saturday

I’m very aware of the seriousness of events occurring right now, but please allow me to rant for a few seconds about the first Saturday in my lifetime without sports and an extended stoppage of play of all sports.  No March Madness in March, no March Madness brackets (and losing to my brother for another year), no home runs by Bryce Harper, no goals by Ovechkin, no dunks by LeBron, no birdies by Phil Mickelson, no goals by Tottenham and no sports for ESPN to cover.  I know I have plenty of books, TV shows and projects to fill the void, but sports have always been the background noise to my life (intermixed with my cheering and yelling) and it’s going to be mighty quiet for awhile.
