  1. I think it gets pushed back a year.
  2. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
  3. Has UEFA announced what the plan for Euro 2020 is if Corona Virus is still around by June?
  4. NBA, NHL and MLB in contact with CDC and other health organizations: https://www.cbc.ca/sports/north-american-sports-leagues-covid-19-coronavirus-monitoring-1.5481401
  5. I hope we get this resolved by the start of the Olympics. I wonder how it would affect domestic sports in the United States such as the 2020 NFL season?
  6. One thing about a USA 2026 bid is for certain......there will not be any white elephant stadiums when all is said and done.
  7. At least we know that most of the stadiums will still be in use after the 2026 World Cup ends, which means no "white elephant" venues that have plagued other World Cup sites after the games are over with.
  8. One of the reasons I watch the Olympics is to see athletes who we don't see all that often compete, however, that doesn't happen with all Olympic sports, most notably Olympic Basketball. Without the NHL this year playing Olympic Hockey, Olympic Basketball will likely continue to be an international tournament of NBA players heading into Tokyo (although the NHL could come back in 4 years). Does watching Olympic Basketball hurt your Olympic watching experience? Does it help? Do you not care? I have a friend who watches a lot of the NBA but watches the Olympics to see athletes we don't see al
  9. So in 2028 in Los Angeles, will NBC use all of that Olympics coverage to randomly drop in a mention of Sunday Night Football? Or will the save that for the last few days like they did in Rio?
  10. Isn't the next World Championships in Doha in September? If so, it'll get destroyed ratings wise in America going opposite College and NFL Football.
  11. Track and Field is one of the lesser sports in America these days. Think about it. If there's a male athlete who runs really fast on the track, but also plays another sport very well, he'll go more towards that other sport. Outside of the diehards, how many people knew that Willie Gault and Bob Hayes were track stars? Plus, there have been a ton of NFL players who ran track in high school or even college that chose to play in the NFL. If there was a US born male athlete who had Justin Gatlin's speed, but also had the football skills of a Deion Sanders or Jerry Rice, which sport do yo
  12. Simone Manuel wins silver in the 50 freestyle and gold in the 400 medley relay. That's four medals, two individual medals. Looks like Team USA has a brand new star, and this one is an unexpected star too, with everyone thinking that the likes of Michael Phelps, Allyson Felix, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas and Katie Ledecky coming out of the Olympics as we expected them to. Nobody thought that Simone Manuel was going to medal, much less tie for the gold medal in the 100 Freestyle.
  13. American Simone Manuel just made history in a race that she had no chance to win.
  14. So how would Trump (or for that matter Ted Cruz) handle a mass shooting?
  15. Cruz is the junior in the Senate. He was elected to fill the spot when Kay Bailey Hutchison retired and he defeated former Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for the Republican nomination.
  16. Monica Belucci's soon-to-be ex-husband would have made a great Bond villain.
  17. How a yes vote impacts the IOC.... http://www.athleticsweekly.com/featured/scottish-referendum-athletes-will-follow-funding-says-reedie-12254/
  18. Saw an interview with the leader of the Donetsk People's Republic and in a nutshell, he saying "my real name is Pinocchio and me and my men are lying sacks of rat feces."
  19. The Pro Russian Rebels are lying sacks of crap. They say that they had nothing to do with it. So why are they not allowing foreign access to the site?
  20. Didn't Spain's neutrality during World War II prevent Franco from suffering the same fate as Hitler and Mussolini?
  21. Hopefully Dallas has a plan on where to put Athletics. Because right now, I cannot imagine where track and field would be held. The only track and field venue in the area is University of Texas-Arlington's Maverick Stadium, but that only holds 15,000 and you would have to expand it by 20,000. I guess the only logical path would be to remove the lower section of the Cotton Bowl (the areas in blue). However, if the Cotton Bowl is used for Soccer, then well....athletics is out of luck. As for swimming? I read a long time ago that AT&T Stadium could accommodate Olympic Swimming. Not
  22. Plus, unlike most countries, any US Bid would mean zero white elephant stadiums when the hosting is over with.
  23. Racism happens in America too, most recently Donald Sterling and The Tea Party.
