The gist is, we’ll be here, come join us.

MLS: Club Leon at Los Angeles Football Club Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Hey folks, Thursday was a trip. For the first time in my life, basically all the sports decided to stop play for weeks at a time. The only other time sports stopped was 9/11, but people tried to pick up quickly to return to a sense of normalcy in our everyday lives.

This time it’s different. Maybe it will be a 30-day hiatus, the coronavirus will recede and the full-blown crisis will be averted. Maybe we really don’t know what’s in store.

It’s pretty scary! I am worried. But here’s what I’m going to do for the time being:

  • Keep writing here regularly
  • Hope you pop in the comments if you’re bored or need to take your mind off things for a bit

I’m really familiar with no games — this site existed for 3.5 years with no MLS squad or games to cover, remember, and we made it through. We can do that again.

But having said that, it’s going to get creative. I will write about soccer sometimes, and I’ll write about random stuff sometimes. I will try things out — some will work, others won’t. Give me feedback — what do you want to see?

There’s a lot of serious stuff in the world, all the time. Sports are meant to be a way both to provide diversion and entertainment and to reflect our lived reality, all at the same time. Let’s work together to provide a virtual community, already one of the missions of this site, and support each other in all the ways we can.

What do you think? What do you want to see on the site? Let’s chat in the comments below.
