As we remain in pandemic mode, our televisions become a true gift starting tonight. This evening we have the presidential debate and we have the first round of the American League playoffs starting this afternoon and running well into the late evening. For me it’ll be the New York Yankees at Cleveland playing the Indians it’s been a long time since I’ve had two televisions running at once. Baseball and debate. I posted an entry on this site back on July 3rd. it was 21 days before the baseball season started and I said there was absolutely no way MLB could pull off 60 games per team over 2 months. In the beginning, it looked like I hit the nail right on the head and was right. The Miami Marlins had 18 players go down after the first weekend with COVID-19 and they missed a whole week of play. A week and a half later the Cardinals had their turn at testing positive. The general consensus is the players couldn’t control themselves and they weren’t maintaining the safety protocol that was set by both the league and their very own Union. To my surprise and absolute pleasure, there wasn’t another breakout throughout the rest of the shortened season. I predicted they wouldn’t finish the 60 games. I don’t know what kind of magic both Rob Manfred and Tony Clark, MLB commissioner, and MLBPA chief had up their sleeves but whatever they told these guys seem to have worked. All 30 teams have traveled regionally playing mostly 60 game schedules and I guess the boys really took the message to heart because there were no major outbreaks at all.. good job MLB! You’re two-thirds of the way home.  Both championship series, AL and NL will be played in Texas at the brand new 1.5 billion dollar Globe Life Stadium, seasonal home to Texas Rangers.

The World Series will be played there too. In addition, there will be human beings in the stands. All those silly place cards are going away. I’m assuming it’ll be something like they’re doing in Miami right now during the Dolphin games. Hard Rock Stadium in Miami has 75,000 seats and they’re allowing 13,000 people to attend each game. I suppose that was worked out by scientists, doctors, and mathematicians. The manager of Hard Rock Stadium said, “if you don’t wear a mask you’re not welcome here”. They’re taking this seriously and I’m sure MLB is too. Each sports league seems to be following successful protocols that were set up by their counterparts. So far so good… And by the way…GO HEAT! Tomorrow night Miami and Los Angeles square off at the bubble in Orlando the crown the 2020 NBA champion. It looks like their system worked too. This boils down to a sports Fan’s dream but more importantly, at least for me it brought some normality back to these crazy abnormal times and made me feel really good. I’m sure a lot of people feel like that. It makes you feel like things can and will eventually get back to at least the new normal. The baseball season was a major distraction from the tragedy and the pain caused by COVID-19.

 

Our economy opens up more and more every day! Many people have gone back to work and are getting paid. That includes collection agencies too. Collectors are back pounding the phone looking to recoup monies owed to their clients. It’s a lot easier to kick back and watch some baseball, basketball, and heavy debating with a free, clear mind.
