    It was just about two months ago when the Indian Wells in California tennis tournament canceled. A week later pretty much all the sports leagues like the NBA and NHL fell like dominoes and stopped on a dime.

    So barring glitches ( which one can't discount) the Bundesliga, the German football league, will resume playing without fans next weekend starting May 16th.

    I hope they incorporate Zoom technology as a substitute for fans in the stands. It is my contention that without any fan backdrop sports will seem like glorified scrimmages.

    That said this news means that the first relevant sports league will start up since the world wide shut down and what a welcome sight. The games are telecast on weekend mornings on the Fox Sports Network but it wouldn't be a bad idea to telecast as many games as possible seeing that the sports landscape is beyond barren right now. Have to wait and see what the TV plans are but it will finally give me something to sink my teeth into. :)

    Looking forward to seeing some of the best young white athletes on the planet including teen wunderkind Erling Haaland ( Dortmund) and striker Timo Werner ( Leipzig). There are other white stars to keep an eye on too so I am jacked that at least there is a sign of life out there.

    Good weekend for young talent. Hazard, Haaland and Havertz (2) all on the score sheet.
