Why We’re Even Letting Sports LIE To Us About COVID-19! WAKE UP!

Wonder why we can’t seem to get a handle on the Coronavirus? Maybe it’s because so many in America don’t want to hear the truth or for that matter, tell the truth about what’s actually happening! Those that do put their “big boy and big girl pants” on are immediately shouted down and/or  discredited. Now, we can’t even watch a ballgame without this alternate reality!

FoxSports just refused to tell us the truth! On the Major League Baseball broadcasts, Fox is now not only filling the audio with the sounds of fans who aren’t there, they’re also filling the stands with imaginary fans! Why? Because they’ll do anything they can to make us forget about Covid-19!

The Trump Administration and it’s supporters for 3 1/2 years have been denying scientists and scientific facts replacing them both in leadership positions and basic staff with political appointees. States, localities and organizations aren’t releasing information and/or numbers in order to play the public relations game. Most of our commercials on tv don’t show social distancing and people in lots of masks. In between our favorite shows we now see what used to be instead of what is! They make sure we see lots of crowds and hugging and not a mask in site!

Families vs families vs community members arguing when it comes to local sports. Whether it’s summer league play, high school sports, College and pros. Very little of it is fact based. As a matter of fact it comes down to these two words, WANTS and NEEDS!

Politicians, businesses, coaches, parents, athletes, high risk people, etc… (let’s just say everybody) will frame their side as a NEED and your side as a WANT! The problem is, unless both sides are willing to find and focus on THE FACTS there’s no way to agree on what is a WANT a FACT and a NEED.

Grow up people! Here are just some of the facts…

•There is a Global Coronavirus Pandemic

•The United States of America is the worst spot on the planet when it comes to COVID-19

•How we used to live is NOT how we must live now

•The only way to save our economy is if we first conquer this virus

•Based on reviews of scientific data the FDA has determined that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine DO NOT WORK. I know you WANT them to work but you NEED to realize that THEY DON’T

•What NORMAL was then, isn’t what NORMAL is now

•We’re not being ask to cut of an appendage, we’re simply being told to WEAR A MASK, SOCIAL DISTANCE and WASH YOUR HANDS

•In this case, what you WANT is something you hope for. What you NEED is something that must happen in order to exist

•We better suck it up and get a handle on telling ourselves the truth no matter how much or who or what is lying to us

None of this has been easy. The truth is that the future will probably be harder. The people lying to us aren’t the ones we should be listening to. It’s time to figure out that once again, we’re going to have to find and hear the tough truths. Find a way to exist with them until we don’t and then be happy as Hell that we’ve moved on.

Is everyone going to be big enough to do this? Nope, just the people who are responsible enough to understand and care about more people than just themselves. Just the people who, as it turns out, are the kinds of people we all wanted to be once upon a time.
