Self-Isolation Trend #7

The no sports trend has been going on for months and I’ve had a few different reactions throughout this trend.  First phase was during the initial shock where it was still too painful to watch ESPN, check my sports notifications or watch any replays.  Second phase included still not watching ESPN, glancing quickly at my sports notifications and not watching any replays.  As much as I love football, I’ve never been a big fan of NFL Draft Day, but in the third phase of the no sports trend some form of sports are back and I treated NFL Draft Day like the Super Bowl and began watching ESPN Peyton Manning shows and various sports replays.  I’m reading all my sports notifications, listening to Pardon the Interruption (PTI) podcasts with two of my ESPN favorites, Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon (hoping every minute they return to TV), muttering about Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski (never knew I was going to have a reason to dislike Tampa Bay), looking at Bryce Harper clips and am ready to pay whatever it costs to watch the Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods golf charity match for COVID-19 relief.

  1. Your own Harper to the rescue! In all seriousness, it’s going to be a long dry spell for many things, including movies and television shows. Sigh.

    1. Many of my favorite shows will be delayed, but luckily I’m so far behind on my watchlist that maybe I’ll find a few new favorites.🙂

    1. It’s so bad I’m almost ready to watch people playing sports video games on TV and I’ve never liked video games. I’ve been playing, watching or talking about sports my whole life and obviously I can’t function without them because I’ve accomplished nothing during all this free time except an increased desire to rant!!😁

    1. I’ve tried to get a team together with the backyard visitors, but so far Harper and the squirrels refuse to be on the same team.😁
