Another week without sports happening around the world so I hope all you sports fans are enjoying watching all the Classic Games being shown on various channels to get your fix. ESPN has seemed to go back to their original roots showing off-the-wall sports, including Cornhole Tournaments and Spikeball College Championships. I had never heard of Spikeball before watching, but the University of Georgia claimed the collegiate title.
The Georgia Recreation and Parks Association has canceled all of their baseball and softball district and state tournaments for this year. The Charlton County Recreation Department is still holding out hope that they can play their local league during the summer.
As expected, Oregon senior Sabrina Ionescu was the first pick of the WNBA Draft after being chosen by the New York Liberty. Her college teammate, Satou Sabally, was the second selection, going to the Dallas Wings. The Atlanta Dream had the fourth overall pick and chose guard Chennedy Carter from Texas A&M.
The WNBA is exploring multiple options on how to begin their season, including possibly playing doubleheaders with NBA clubs when they resume their season. However, only five of the twelve WNBA teams share an arena.
The NFL Draft begins on Thursday with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow expected to be the top selection by the Cincinnati Bengals. The Washington Redskins have been projected to take Ohio State defensive lineman Chase Young with the second pick.
Meanwhile, with several quarterbacks left after Burrow, it will be interesting to see who goes next among the group of Tua Tagovailoa, Jordan Love, Justin Herbert, Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the ninth overall pick in the draft and have apparently had trade talks about leading rusher Leonard Fournette. They seem to have settled on Gardner Minshew at quarterback for at least next season, but may be preparing for a major rebuilding season.
With the COVID-19 virus still going on, college football could be in jeopardy if the shelter in place continues. College presidents have stated there will be no football unless the universities are open for all students to attend classes.
The PGA Tour seems to be the first professional group to have at least established a starting date. They are shooting for June 11 to restart their season. It was announced that at least the first four events would be played without any fans in attendance.
The NBA commissioner stated the league is not in a position yet to determine the restart of the season or even a deadline to cancel the remainder of the year.
