I pity the poor sports hater. Several years ago, they were so excited about the prospects of banning tackle football. Why they even had a Will Smith motion picture for support! But then, years go by, and football is as popular as ever: the most popular American sport, more so, even. Then, Covid hits. Here was your 2nd chance! you thought. Use this as an excuse to ban sports, because you don't like them yourself. Pretend that playing sports was as dangerous for young well-conditioned athletes as it was for obese diabetics in old folks homes. So you advocated no pro sports seasons. But then there were pro sports seasons. Then, no college sports at least. But there were college sports seasons. Well, surely you can assert your moral superiority to ban local youth sports, such as in high school. Nope, they had seasons too. Well, how about 11 sports at Stanford? Nope. They're on. Well, you MUST stop the high school sports playoffs--or ELSE! sorry. they're on too.
