    • Society & Culture

In this episode, we sit down with Andrew Hill & Alex "Big" Blake to talk about the impact of COVID-19 on sports. In the beginning, we discuss how no live sports on TV has affected each of us (01:50) and the unique challenges facing sports like UFC and WWE as they plan upcoming events without fans (06:05). Then, we talk about whether golf would be better or worse without fans and debate whether The Masters in November will still be engaging to watch (07:30). At the break, we share a story from our neighborhood about a local teacher serving meals to her students' families and invite listeners to partner with her (16:00). After we return, we share the oddities of watching championship replays on TV (17:40) and laugh about the absurdity of seeing NBA players playing NBA 2K and H.O.R.S.E. on TV (19:00). Finally, we talk about the potential upside of players being quarantined and forced to practice alone (24:00) and wonder aloud about potential timelines and/or restrictions on live sports coming back into our lives (25:55).
