The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the entire globe and put sports leagues from the majors to minor on hold while the virus takes its course. Stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines have the sports world waiting to play ball, or at least see a live sporting event.
Outside of shooting hoops in your driveway or hitting a tennis ball against the wall, there are not a whole lot sports lovers can do while the field and parks are locked down, and sports waits with the rest of the world to get back to some kind of normalcy.
Ways to Get Sporty During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Just because you cannot go to a packed stadium or hunker down for live sporting events in the comfort of your own home, there are ways to get your sports fix while self-isolating with your family. The following are suggestions for capturing what you love most about playing or following sports during these difficult times.
The internet’s premier live game streaming site, Twitch offers video game streaming content and videos relating to your favorite games. Formula One and NASCAR added events with drivers participating live online.
Microsoft’s answer to Twitch, Mixer users enjoy a more interactive experience and some additional features to enhance the gaming and viewing experience. You can run Mixer through your Xbox gaming system, where you can split the screen with your gaming buddies.
Get lost down a rabbit hole of videos featuring your favorite games and sports. View interviews and features, and watch classic games from the NBA, NFL, NHL, and soccer. The most entertaining sporting events are exciting and will give the thrill whether you remember the outcome or not.
There is no end to the amount and variety of topics produced through podcasts in today’s digital world. Whatever your sport is, there are sure to be dozens of podcasts from athletes, fans, and broadcasters. Some of the best and most downloaded sports-related podcasts include 30 for 30 Podcast, Sports Wars, and The Bill Simmons Podcast.
From “Brian’s Song” and “Pride of the Yankees” to “The Sandlot” and “Cool Runnings,” sports movies capture the spirit of sports that we are missing in these difficult times. Of if you really have a lot of time on your hands, the Ken Burns “Baseball” 9-episode documentary entertains and informs about America’s favorite pastime.
