SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

I cut the cord 5 or 6 years ago, maybe more. So during big tournaments, I subscribe to some online service, watch my games, then cancel. I did YouTube TV (or is it YouTube Live?) last summer for Women's World Cup in France. Did a VPN service one winter for the Olympics as NBC had no online option and Canada and England had free options. Sometimes I get lucky as I get a week or two free trial, though I may have already used my CBS All Access trial on a March Madness one year.

holden, thanks for a trip down memory lane.
Why didn't we think of this earlier? With multiple days of zero posts, bringing back Huddles or articles From the Archives, would be amusing.

NWSL to return on June 27 with month-long tournament haven't had time to read this, but one concern was how to handle players with young children.

I will be happy to watch as many games as I can of this as I can. Will be a bit odd though not being able to drive the 5 hours to SLC to see the games live. Some fellow soccer coaches/analysts on twitter have been offering their services for free to be able to attend these games live :)

NBA May Play Rest of Season at Disney World

The article does not state how locked down those involved will be. Some concerns and stories about isolating everyone.

  • German coach missed first game after going out to get some toothpaste a few days before a game
  • Player's want to be present for the birth of a child or present for some other life event
  • After testing everyone mental health for 7 weeks of being stuck at home, we are asking those involved to do it longer
While maybe not these exact point, I heard these types of questions is what has MLB shying away from starting season in Florida and Arizona but at home stadiums.

Coronavirus: No professional sport in England until 1 June at earliest

Frauen Bundesliga could resume from 23rd May behind closed doors I am happy about this as women's soccer has made lots of gains in the last few years and many fear those gains will be lost in the current crisis.

My youth club is working out when and if we will return to play this spring while the Germany's Bundesliga gets the green light to restart in empty stadiums this month

The start date is May 15 with hopes of ending season by end of June.

In the USA, MLS, USL announce return to training update and NWSL to permit individual workouts starting Wednesday. Though it sounds like lots of individual training where small groups pick different corners and proceed to workout.

Uefa asks European Leagues for decision on domestic seasons by 25 May

My college soccer conference (NAIA) awards two automatic berths to national tournament. One is given to regular season champion. Second is given to tournament champion, tournament runner-up if one team wins both championships.

Conference rules always state who gets second berth if tournament cannot be completed, presumably because of weather. Always thought that little rule was silly. Not so much anymore.

Currently about halfway through the 2014 Bahrain race. Little odd as the announcers are talking about fuel consumptions, as if car may run out of gas, and a 2 or 3 stop strategy, but lots of overtaking, even between teammates.

I also enjoyed the 2016(I think) Brazil race. Mixed weather so everyone trying to figure out what tire to use. Also, it was a still tight in the Championship and Constructor titles, so this effected pit strategy also.

I started following F1 racing in 2019. The Formula 1 YouTube channel has some pre-2019 races that I have been watching. Works out well as rules and cars are similar to today's rules and cars, I recognize most of the names (though quite a few are on different teams), and I do not know the results. #SportsIn2020

P.S. Seems like I should be able to make a "Hindsight is 2020" joke here, but still on 1st cup of coffee

Report: U.S. Soccer in perilous financial situation
To remain sane, I coach soccer as sort of a side hustle. Youth and college sports have taken quite a hit this spring and not sure fall will look any better. This news above is quite a shock. Not quite the USMNT not making the World Cup, but pretty close.

Two soccer stories

University of Cincinnati cut the men's soccer program, which starts discussions about will more college sports be cut?

Twitter has been a buzz for a week with rumors of U.S. Soccer to terminate Developmental Academies for boys, girls. The youth soccer landscape in the US is a jumble mess of politics and money. This may clear up a few things, especially on the girls side, but it is still messier than the tangle of old cords stored in a box in some deep dark closet.
