2020 has been a really strange year in a lot of ways. It’s difficult to overlook all of the negative ways the world has been affected this year, but, while being mindful of it all, it is important to find some positives as well.
Many sports leagues had to adjust their schedules for the safety of their employees, so the sports calendar has been very weird. But it has worked out in a way that the leagues of all four major American sports – MLB (baseball), NHL (hockey), NBA (basketball), NFL (football) – are running at the same time! The NHL and NBA are both primarily winter sports while MLB plays every summer. The NFL runs from late summer through winter. So in normal years, all five sports being played at the same time would never happen. And on top of that, European soccer is already back up and running, so all of my five favorite sports are currently being played. As an avid sports fan, this is like heaven! Every day, there are so many games to watch. It can actually be difficult to keep up, but it’s nice to constantly have something to watch and statistics to analyze.
