For those who have reached their sports starvation limit and desperately want to see some sort of sports programming on TV, Fox Sports is rebroadcasting a classic NASCAR Cup race this evening.

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

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.
