Sports In The Time After (But Kind Of Still During) Corona

Jonathan McNicol
Connecticut Public Radio
Sports stadiums have been pretty empty for about three months now, and they're likely to stay that way even if the games and matches start back up again this summer.

The leagues are working in earnest toward starting back up. The NBA has a plan. Major League Baseball can't seem to work one out. Major League Soccer might beat them both back onto the field.

How is this all going to work? What are sports going to look like when they start playing games again? Should they start playing games again?

Plus: One of the ways we've dealt with a sportsless world these last few months -- betting on esports.

And, in case you didn't know there were multiple crises on at once: a look at sports in the time of protest.
