Two years ago.

Two years ago today, Michigan played against Villanova in the college basketball National Championship game…

Michigan ended up losing 79-62 in the championship game but what an incredible tournament run it was! GO BLUE!

One year ago today.

One year ago, I watched the start of March Madness at work on my iPad and iPod…

And then after work, we stopped by Queen City Radio to watch some more hoops…

And we shared a delicious Whip Classic burger…

Mmmmmm, Whip Classic. I can’t wait until we can have a Whip Classic again.

And Opening Day was only SIX days away…

Oh good times. I really miss sports. Hopefully, they’ll start again soon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

A world without sports.

Last night, the NBA shocked everyone by abruptly suspending the remaining games of their season after a player on the Utah Jazz tested positive for coronavirus…

 

But at least, my Mavs are the 2019/20 Champions. This afternoon, Michigan was set to begin their 2020 B1G TEN tournament against Rutgers in Indianapolis at a Bankers Life Fieldhouse without any spectators…

And just as the game was about to tipoff, the entire tournament was canceled…

Both teams were on the floor, warmed up and ready to tip-off their tournament and then the plug was pulled on the whole thing.

Some things are bigger than basketball. This is a global situation and we need to make sure we follow the guidance and direction of the experts and health officials. While we are disappointed of not being able to play this event โ€” especially for Zavier and Jon.

We need to stay bonded together during this time. We want everyone to stay safe and take precautions to protect yourselves and loved ones.

We are a Michigan family… forever.

โ€” Michigan Head Coach, Juwan Howard

But on the upside, Michigan is still undefeated against Rutgers.

And less than an hour later, MLS postponed their season for 30 days…

No Minnesota United soccer for a while

In a related story, I’m done with FC Cincinnati. Completely done. But that’s another post for another time. And not long after MLS, USL followed suit and suspended their season for at least 30 days as well…

Louisville City just completed their soccer-specific stadium before the beginning of this season, and now they’re going to have to wait a little while longer to christen their stadium. But it looks just beautiful…

A few hours later, it was baseball’s turn…

And then later this afternoon, March Madness turned into March Sadness…

Ha. And when I got home from work, I saw an update from England…

Apparently, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been diagnosed with COVID-19…

The FA is scheduled to release a statement of the future of the English Premier League season. I’m guessing it will be postponed for the foreseeable future…

And there you go. Now we’re living in my nightmare, a world without sports. It’s a very sad day. And it’s going to be a really long month. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿšซโค๏ธ

UPDATE: The Premier League season has been suspended with the intention of returning on April 4. The League intends to reschedule the postponed matches.

And the NBA season is likely to resume. Games could return in April and possibly go straight into the playoffs, or the league could push the entire calendar back. But my Mavericks will always be 2019/20 NBA Champions to me.

The best weekend of the year.

It’s the official start of the best sports weekend of the year. Today, March Madness has begun and the 2019 NCAA basketball tournament tipped off…

So much basketball. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ€โค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

What the what?! There just aren’t words.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿš—โค๏ธ

Northside Sunday.

We were walking down Hamilton Avenue to brunch and saw the Dogfish Head x Crosley Cruiser Tour parked out in front of Shake It Records

We went to Django Western Taco for brunch…

We shared a breakfast burrito and tater tot casserole…

Afterwards, we went to Second Place to watch Michigan’s second round basketball game against Louisville. It also turns out the Liverpool versus Manchester City match was on…

Second Place put out quite the spread for the match…

It was a pretty amazing atmosphere for both of the games. And… it was super exciting to watch Michigan advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Also, next Saturday the second season of FC Cincinnati USL soccer kicks off in Charleston, South Carolina. And Second Place is having a watch party…

It was another really fun Sunday in Northside. ๐Ÿ™‚

It has begun!

One of the best sports weekends of the year is finally back!

NCAA March Madness started today! HOORAY! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pause for paws.

Oscar had his little basketball out and was all setย for Michigan’sย First Four NCAA Tournament game tonight against Tulsa…

And Michigan won 67-62! They advance to play Notre Dame on Friday. #GoBLUE! ๐Ÿ™‚
