For the past two months, we have all been cooped up in our homes binge watching Tiger King and counting down the days until the COVID-19 pandemic is contained. It has been easier to adjust for some more than others, but for sports fans such as myself, there is a glaring hole in our lives that has been irreplaceable. Not having the ability to turn on the TV and watch an NBA or NHL game agonizes us. For a brief three days, however, the NFL’s first virtual draft gave us hope and a sense of relief from the troubles we are facing today. If those three draft days were any indication of the effect regular sporting events would have during today’s crisis, we need sports now more than ever.
