When to Resume? Professional Sports Struggle With a Date For Restart

May 28, 2020

As stadiums and arenas around the world sit empty, professional sports teams and leagues are losing billions of dollars, fans have become distraught, and many league employees have lost their jobs. In the United States and abroad, leagues are grappling with the polarizing and painstakingly difficult question of when and how they can reopen.[pullquote speaker="" photo="" align="left" background="off" border="none" shadow="off"]The virus has affected countries in different ways, and so leagues have put together vastly different protocols for returning to play.[/pullquote] Almost all professional sports leagues in Europe and the US suspended play in mid-March as the coronavirus began to sweep across the world. In the US, this meant that the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Hockey League (NHL) seasons were suspended right before the playoffs were slated to begin, and the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season, which usually begins in late March, had to be pushed back to the summer. The virus has affected countries in different ways, and so leagues have put together vastly different protocols for returning to play.

“Tiger King”: The Story No One Could Make Up

“Tiger King”: The Story No One Could Make Up

May 27, 2020

Typically, when watching a documentary series, the show covers its last piece of material and footage somewhere around episode two or three, and then shifts its focus towards speculation. This is not the way Netflix’s smash hit Tiger King plays out. It is not until the very last episode that you feel you have perspective on the whole series, as there always seems to be another layer—and another guilty party gone unpunished. While most documentaries run out of steam when they run out of material, Tiger King stands apart as you realize you couldn’t make this up if you tried. While the titular Tiger King refers to the show’s famed tiger wrangler and less famed presidential hopeful Joe Exotic, the mullet-sporting personality only becomes a single pawn in a much bigger game. Instead, the seeming instigator of these events would be one Carole Baskin, a wildlife activist with a powerful legal team behind her.
