In case you missed it, and I know a lot of you did, two big things happened this past week, and then didn’t happen.
First we have the meteor that most people were hoping just ended it all. Alas, missed us by this much. 2020 rolls on.
Second, the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA staged a walkout/boycott of their playoff game against the Orlando Magic over the shooting in Kenosha WI. Another huge swing and a miss. All by the NBA players.
This occurred on a Wednesday afternoon. By the time other leagues, MLB, NHL, WNBA, PGA, NFL training camp, knew it was happening it was Wednesday early Thursday. They all decided to join the boycott of their respective sports in some fashion.
By late Thursday the NBA voted and decided to resume their playoff season, leaving all the other leagues in the lurch. Nice work guys.
Thanks for nothing.
