So, Dr. Fauci throws out the first pitch in this long-delayed opening day of the national MLB season. The national champs from last year, Washington Nationals, have much to respect from this medical expert and the social distancing that will be upheld during this very short season.
This resembles something along the lines of the closure we all experienced throughout the spring, and the many spikes that are causing additional fear right now. Without the ability to have fans in the stands, no spitting, masks required, and much more to manage the further spread of COVID-19, there is at least something for Americans to enjoy live on television at this time.
Coming to think of the lack of sports on TV while so many of us have been locked into our homes so many months over the past year, there is somewhat of an American tradition back in front of us today.
It may not be perfect. It may not be exactly what we are used to, and there is a great adjustment that we all have to make based on the Coronavirus and what it is doing to the American people.
Unfortunately, the Coronavirus is killing hundreds or even thousands of Americans daily. That takes much greater precedent over the desire of fans to watch baseball from right there in the seats at the the stadium. Hopefully, there will at least be something positive to a certain amount of return to activity and interaction in some of these sports. At least a small amount of “normalcy” that we love during our summer months.
So, what may come to us next? Something that will at least seem like the America we love? A country where we trust the ability to walk the streets?
For the time being, continue with caution for the complete safety and health of yourself and your family during the Coronavirus pandemic. Science and the data will help us get there soon enough. We are all in this together and something will be done about it eventually. The man in the oval office may not be the most trustworthy voice of our nation at the time, but we have doctors, scientists, and many others who are working relentlessly on vaccines and other treatments for COVID-19. We will make it eventually.
