SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Rather freaky watching Bundesliga action in an empty stadium yesterday.

But good to be able to hear the guys voices out on the pitch, which normally are drowned out by the crowd.

The sound reminded me of local international pickup games on the weekends in my area.

Former Washington great Dexter Manley has been hospitalized with Covid-19 complications. Hope he is able to pull through. He was one of the District athletes who formed a strong connection with legendary sportscaster George Michael.

Trailblazing sports personality, Phyllis George, died yesterday. Phyllis George was part of CBS's NFL pregame show and the Preakness Stakes.

There goes yet another piece of my childhood.
