Sports are back……yawn.  

Apparently readers of The Bedford Citizen are not all that excited about professional sports being back. 

My personal opinion is that professional sports are …sort of back.  It’s weird!   Maybe it’s just that the Red Sox look like they’re doing their best to make a shortened 60 game season seem like it will be the longest one they ever will have-60 games seems like an awful lot for this team. 

It seems very strange to see ball games being played with empty seats. 

Basketball is being played at Disney World.  Disney is doing what only Disney could do. The basketball games have video monitors in the seats in the stands.  I guess it’s a virtual attempt at the happiest place on earth. 

So far,  Hockey seems a bit more normal from a TV point of view. 

So sports are back, it might be a case of being careful what you wish for. 

Although there are games to watch, mostly it’s just a reminder as to how strange things are.  It might get better as we get used to it. 

(Or if the Red Sox find a pitcher.)
