    As someone with a very compromised immune system, my departure from Seattle for Quebec City was well timed. In contrast to Seattle, Quebec City has no cases, though that will change, but still has opened a dedicated coronavirus clinic for testing and such, and has a coronavirus hotline number (811).

    But still no hand sanitizer in the stores.

    Yeah, this could be a challenge. Take too much time off, and the players will need another spring training.

    So what will all the gamblers bet on now that everything is cancelled? eSports? I guess they will have that odd feeling of having money in their bank account. :cool:

    Thanks to major changes at work owing to the Coronavirus, I am about to have more free time in the Spring than I've had since I was in middle school, and all of the sports viewing options I'm losing has me feeling a bit like Burgess Meredith in "The Twilight Zone" - also owing to the Coronavirus.

    Someone let Fox Sports know that MLS has suspended play. They are still plugging this weekend's matches. :oops:

    Guys why are we talking about this season like it's happening? Coronavirus will be an 18 month lockdown according to the experts... And 1.5 million deaths later we won't even be in the same world we were in before the virus. Everything will be different... spectator sports might be deemed too great a risk and will never return.

    Perhaps this will the permanent end of the movie theater? The large sports stadium? Offices? The only thing certain is that the world will be completely unrecognizable.

    What's stopping them from doing lots of tests in Seattle? I thought there was a general shortage of reagent?

    I guess there's nothing left to do but to play video games.

    I was going to say that at least Nascar is still running this weekend but they just canceled the next 2 weeks too.

    It's going to be a really boring couple of months for most people. Fortunately, or unfortunately for me, I'll be working 16-20 hours a day dealing with what's causing all this. Fun times. fml.

    I'm surprised they didn't just say the season will be suspended for the next 60-90 days.

    WrestleMania is still going to happen with fans in attendance at least until Vince McMahon meets with Tampa city officials today and they cancel it.
