Like most of you, I’m sitting here watching to see how this whole thing plays out. The various sports entities are plunging ahead like they are sure there will be a new season, while the various medical entities are doubting any sports will happen the rest of the year, at the very least.
While those two big wig operations are forging ahead, the players are grumbling about all of it. Some will be opting out of the season, the NFLPA will try to muscle into the decision making process, and the fans will end up taking what we can get.
So far, thirty-one major league baseball guys have opted out of playing this season. Don’t know if any NFL types will take that route. A few maybe, but not many, I would think.
Training Camps are set to open in about three weeks. Which would normally get our juices flowing a bit. But we may have to wait until the camps actually happen for any of us to turn that spigot on.
God’s involvement with humanity is always a lively topic of debate between the believers and the non-believers, but even a believer has to question His motives for continuing to reward Bill Belichick when it’s clear to any reasonably intelligent soul that this guy is undeserving of any breaks in life. And yet, there’s Cam Newton falling into Belichick’s lap like a gift from heaven. This is very depressing. I was looking forward to the coming season just to watch the Patriots go back to being a mediocre franchise, kicked around by just about any team on any given Sunday.
Sigh. I may have to re-evaluate my theological indifference this year. Some things should never be allowed to happen in a fair and just universe.
