March Sadness 2020
Dear Sports Fan,

I hope you and your family are hanging in there during these unprecedented times. Most of us could have never imagined a time like this during the "Technology Age" in which we would be practicing social distancing and isolation. Not only does it seem unsettling, it's also hugely disappointing to us sports fans. Did you ever think March Madness would get cancelled during your lifetime? Did you ever think all professional and collegiate sports could get cancelled or suspended simultaneously? These are unprecedented times for sports indeed!

Let me tell you about an equally unprecedented offer I'm running while sports are suspended.

Important Notes

UFC: Dana White announced on Monday, March 16 that the UFC hopes to return on April 18 for UFC 249, which is set to feature the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson pay-per-view.

English Premier League: The EPL has extended its suspension of play until at least April 30, adding that it is committed to finishing the season, according to ESPN.

NASCAR: The league sent out a statement on March 16, saying that all races through May 3 are canceled and is targeting the race at Martinsville Speedway as a return date (May 8-9).

NBA: NBA commissioner Adam Silver joined Rachel Nichols on SportsCenter on March 18 to make his first public comments since suspending the season. “I don’t have a good enough sense for hold long of a period this is going to be,” he said, adding, “we’re going to try by every means we can to play basketball again [this season].” Silver said the league would wait for public heath officials give them the OK to return. When asked to speculate on how the league would handle matters of record such as the MVP, scoring title, etc if the NBA had to cancel its season, Silver said said, “I’m not there yet. Maybe I’m in denial, but I’m just not there yet.” Previous reports from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski pegged mid-to-late June as the earliest date the NBA could return, though this is obviously a very fluid situation.

NHL: All NHL players have been sent home and told to self-quarantine, and the league specifically mentioned the CDC’s 60-day directive in its release. That would put us in mid-May, but the NHL has followed the lead of the NBA throughout this whole process, so it being a leader here. We’ll be conservative and project a mid-June return.

MLB: Similar to the NHL, MLB announced that it would be following the CDC’s guidance closely. Also similar to the NHL, we’ll be conservative and project a mid-June return as a lot of factors remain in flux.

XFL: The XFL officially canceled its season on March 20. The upstart football league said in a statement that it’s “looking forward to playing full seasons for you — and with you — in 2021 and beyond.”
