As they say, no matter one’s success in life, you just can’t fix stupid.
Have you ever noticed how a person handed a little bit of authority will abuse it? In an ironic twist of fate, some of the people with those sort of traits I’ve run into over the years have been golf marshals patrolling the same grounds on which I’ve come to experience some peace and quiet. They are either of the snowbird variety or the people who have lived here all their lives but have recently retired. Their former co-workers are probably thinking, “Thank God he’s gone.”
If you’re a sports fan, by now you’ve obviously heard the news. Some Dallas Cowboys players, Houston Texans players, and a few other pro players from around the league have now tested positive for COVID-19.
At a time like this, when cities across the country are up in flames, people who love sports would typically use athletic competition as an outlet for their collective depression, either as a participant in some church softball league, or as a couch potato tuning into the boob tube to watch a pro or college event. Now, though, even that has been taken from us, courtesy of COVID-19, or has it? Time will tell.
The misery tied to COVID-19 may actually change the way sports fans look at professional million-dollar players. Fans may really start to think, amid the misery now being felt around the world, why are we paying so much to watch adults play a kid’s game, with so many of them raking in multi-million-dollar paychecks? I know the unemployed fans are going to feel that way.
