    Not gonna lie, watched the marble Olympics (not sure if same guys), had fun, production value was great (one even had the 'fans' get into a scuffle over a bad play). Recommend for all to watch at least one episode. Unrelated note, i think whenever Trump says something that is utter BS his hands go further apart. Now I cannot un-see that tell. Anyway...marbles.

    I will never understand the appeal of sports. How do you distinguish new content from old content? It all looks exactly the fucking same to me. It's not even different enough within a single match to be even remotely entertaining to me. I would literally feel more entertained watching paint dry.

    with proper testing its still possible to hold these events, the UFC have done it several times now, without a single problem, stop bitching about it already like its a world ending event, we encounter new viruses all the time and every time, the news and current event shows dramatize it to ridiculous extents. The news and shows like this are the reason people go into hysteria, and do utterly stupid shit like buy up all the toilet paper in a grocery store, sometimes people are not more informed for listening to news and shows blindly, they are indoctrinated into stupid behavior

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="604">10:04</a> Lol...After all that, i was imagining Adam Driver walking behind John Oliver. Then, as John stiffens up by the unexpected touch, Adam slips a hand into Johns hair and shuffles it...then Adam walks away as John stares wildly into the camera as his jaw hits the desk. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="743">12:23</a> Well said. Now do you understand why i've stopped watching any form of organized sports for over 35 years? <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="795">13:15</a> With all due respect, Dr Fauci needs a refresher course on how infectious diseases run their course. Yes, SARS did eventually disappear. But that magic bullet has left the building and Corona19 is hear, stay. No one in Washington wants to keep everyone confined until it disappears from having no one to infect, and there won't be a vaccine until the two-hundred-and-fifty thousandth death. So it's clear that Corona19 is in the US to stay and no one has any "good" ideas on how to proceed. Maybe, you shouldn't. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1298">21:38</a> Who, so desperately needs a pay raise, came up with that idea? If it wasn't for my general disinterest in everything that has the word "sports" in it, i would probably watch marble racing. But knowing that there is an "organization" behind this event, i won't. If sports can't belong to everyone to practice and enjoy, then i don't care for it. If you can't practice bull running in your city because it might kill someone, then i don't care for it. As for the face slapping, i don't understand how there were no marks left on the faces after impact.

    This just shows how much money we're wasting on *primarily male* sports industries, like I kinda understand them being on par with actors & the like; &this is coming from a native Bay Arean who genuinely enjoys going to giants games bc, minus the aggressive fans, likes going to games (particularly Irish Night) to socialize. But the amount that major networks make off these games is crazy compared to the amount that goes back into the local community (I genuinely can't think of it now & I'm too tipsy to do resrearch but there was a ball game event in the Bay that sf made an activities park (?) around the piers area & stadium & kicked out some homeless people there was no move to donate to any homeless shelters or similar orgs as compensation) ....Also Vince NcMahon looks like a if a sewing pin was transfigured into a real human person that is all

    you know, if people are really strap for sports, might i suggest e-sports like the overwatch league? players don't have to be in the same building, nor do any commentor, coaches, doctors, or fans, just set up a web camera and a live stream of the game (both of which can be done from home) and stream the games while having the commentor go nuts over what they see

    UFC has now held 4 events, since returning. Zero more cases. Seems they are doing some form of contract tracing pre-screening of the athletes ahead of making their fights. At any rate UFC has tested everyone involved in the 4 events Multiple times before the fight. At their own expense. And I think they have done well. And have now moved to Vegas for the next 3 events to take place, in a facility they own. Other owners, and commissioner offices are, calling Dana for advice. Of course Florida deemed the, WWE essential. 🙉 I love mma. And Dana and the fighters, want to do this. With no live gate. Cool.

    A big thing John didn't mention while talking about WWE is that they taped live shows in Florida even before the Governor said that Wrestling was an essential service, and while doing so they fire and furlough 40 % of their staff, not because they struggling financially, but to make sure that made the high profits that they promised their investors. Not to mention while WWE had said their would be no punishment for wrestlers not showing up due to health worries, this hasn't been true, for explain, the Wrestler Sami Zayn was strip of his Title belt for choosing to stay home. Now compared to WWE, other Wrestling companies have been handling this pandemic with much more care. AEW for one choice to do pre -taped show until for roughly two month until the city of Jacksonville allowed them to do live show there, and even then a large amount of their stars and staff have been allow to choice if they wish to stay at home or not. But however in this Pandemic many smaller independent Wrestling have not been able to put on shows at all, and many independent wrestlers have been struggling during this time. So if you're are a fan of independent wrestling, do try to support them by buying one of their t-shirts to help them out.

    Oh, come on John. Citing that wrestling is an essential service is a stroke of genius. There is no better, no other way than that to keep the millions of stupid Floridians content and at home. It's not like they'll ever run out of plot twists for "Days of our Wrestling". Hell. If we ran 24/7 premium wrestling and Monster truck rallies across America for the next six months, the Democrats would win by a landslide.
