Never since World War 2 has the disruption of professional sports been felt – and in this day and age, the effect is much more profound. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused most sporting events to be cancelled or postponed. Even the 2020 Summer Olympics – which were to take place in Tokyo have been rescheduled to 2021, hopefully. And for the first time in its history – the Boston Marathon was cancelled. Most noticeably in this strange time, spectators have been replaced with an applause audio track – making it –
dare I say – just bizarre to watch.

Players opting out, restricted access to their families, COVID cases putting the breaks on upcoming games, and no fans to help cheer them on – one must ask – is this even worth it?
