Back country LeMans steeplechase:

Remove one wheel, add hangers on, punish your equipment -

Not for the faint of axle or the weak of suspension.

I get that it may be more authentic, but is it a requirement that the participants are barefoot?

If LeBron tests COVID-positive in the NBA playoffs, will the team report it and bench him for the series, or cover it up and LeBron has a 2020 Flu Game?

I don't think the teams are allowed to cover up the test results. I believe the results are reported to both the team and the league. If a team were able to cover test results, and allowed an infected player to be on the court, that team would leave itself wide open to punitive action from the NBA, as well as possible legal action from any player or coach who became infected. From what I know from things that are said during webinars for Celtics season ticket members and on local sports broadcasts, the NBA is really being diligent in keeping the bubble intact.

Hoping they don't resort to the money trumps everything approach favored by some "leaders".
