    Dana White is no longer the Don King of the UFC, he’s Shao Khan with his own Fight Island.

    It’s really fun starting a YouTube channel about sports, only for sports to end… My passion is on pause and it hurts. But people’s safety is more important.

    Bringing people together is what COVID-19 wants us to do. We need all Trump followers, Trump, & the other bigwigs of similar thought to get together at a big convention for a weekend or even a week shaking each other’s hands, telling everyone how we all should do what they say & obediently follow. We need that type of leadership in a crisis like this … leadership by example 🙂

    I’ve been a fan of Jelle’s Marble Runs and last week tonight sponsoring the entire tournament is the absolute best thing he’s ever done

    I thought he was going to talk about video games at the end there. No way I was ever going to see what he did say coming.

    His obsession with Adam Driver is hilarious & the marble league sounds interesting as hell! 😂 I feel sorry for the athletes – they seem don’t care about them at all.

    Sadly, Joe Kelly’s control has actually improved since he last pitched for the Dodgers.

    Sports betting is allowed by United States July 1, 2019. Notice how when we allowed sports betting, God took sports away. Think about it. Those old folks weren’t just superstitious.
    The new law — one that permits statewide mobile sports betting without any brick-and-mortar anchor — has an effective date of July 1, 2019.

    At 16:52, I think you mean the NY Mets who played the first game after 9/11 on sept. 21st and where Mike Piazza hit a home run and people all over NY (and elsewhere in the nationally televised game) went crazy. The Mets won 3-2 and that was truly an ‘if you play New York, you play the whole city’ kind of day. And no, I’m not hating on the Yankees or starting some idiotic Mets vs. Yankees debate. Just statin’ the facts.

    Also, I will be watching the Jelle leagues, but I think it’s hilarious that after three months of highly crazy back and forth the MLB owners have agreed to abide by the March 26th agreement with the player’s union along with two caveats regarding safer play. Also been watching the PBR, they have had riders test for COVid-19 and have swapped them out for others so we have gotten to see rookie bull riders get a break they would never have gotten.

    I spent the duration of this video ranking the sports persons by how much they love their respective balls. Here are my findings:

    5. The soccer* player just wants to kick his ball in the face. No love lost there.
    4. While the tennis player’s action may be the most violent, there is a clear sexual undercurrent to the way he spanks that thing. It’s not a healthy relationship, but there’s a definite attraction there.
    3. The beach volleyballer is tough with her ball but only because she wants to help raise it up to achieve its full potential.
    2. The american football man is essetially spooning his ball while he dances for joy accross the… pitch? court? ground? So much love. But not as much as…
    1. The basket baller loves his ball *so f’in much.* It looks like he’s about to shoot.

    *I’m British. When I was a kid we called it soccer as much as football. Getting offended by the s-word is a modern affectation.

    Kinda surprised John didn’t mention the NWSL, as they’re pretty much the only US league going ahead with a return, and with a bubble league

    Don’t people understand that this is a HUMBLING time!!!! It is nature saying that we are NOT in Control and need to take something more seriously than our indulgences, consumerism and privileges into consideration…whether we like it or not. Those complaining about wanting to watch sports games and having their hair cut, obviously need more time in isolation to really contemplate the human condition and maybe use that atrophied brain and think of different ways to do things, whether it’s to make money or enjoy the competition of sport. The people doing the best in this situation are those willing to adapt quickly and find solutions and not just sit around complaining and bitching. Stay isolated, look after yourself and those around you and change some things. Only if we do this will we overcome it with as little loss of lives as possible, like other counties in the world have!
