    Most all professional sports leagues allow fans to attend games at a reduced capacity, and Major League Baseball is no different, even when it comes to their Spring Training. To be honest, I'm a baseball fan, sure, but I don't see why anyone would have any desire to watch Spring Training games, and watch players play positions that they will more than likely not be in once the season starts. Doesn't seem worth the risk to me, but anyway. Both the Cactus and Grapefruit leagues will be allowing fans to attend Spring Training games at a reduced capacity between 20 to 25 percent. But from what I hear, fans won't be allowed to attend pre-game practice. Also, this reduced capacity thing seems to have created scarcity and has fans falling over each other to scoop up tickets. So there you have, do you think it's worth it? Do you find anything appealing about Spring Training?

    This is amazing news. Hopefully this will help speedup the rollout and distribution.

    I would have to say it most definitely puts him in the running for best racer ever. That's if he actually pulls it off, which I think he has a really good chance of doing so.

    Agreed. Brady has the experience and he's a good QB, but I think Mahomes has more raw talent. Plus he has youth on his side as well. So I still think the Chiefs got this.

    You heard that right. For the first time in 37 years, Budweiser will not be airing one of its iconic Super Bowl ads this year. It's hard to believe because they're such a mainstay. We won't see the Clydesdales or the wagon this year, which is kind of sad. Also, Pepsi won't have an ad because they are focusing on the halftime show, Coke its opting out, and Avocados from Mexico isn't going to have a commercial either.

    "Experts interviewed by the AP cited concerns about everything from high advertising prices during a tough economic time and risky filming conditions during the pandemic, as well as a news cycle that changes seemingly by the second as potential reasons why many advertisers might be opting out. "

    We will still get plenty of commercials though from M&M's and Pringles. One bright side is that Anheuser-Busch will still be advertising brands like Bud Light and Michelob Ultra. So there's that at least. Just going to miss the Budweiser ad though. Who else agrees? So instead of getting down about it. Let's sound off on our favorite Budweiser commercials.

    Yeah, agreed. Also, any commercial, especially Super Bowl ads with Terry Bradshaw in it are my favorite.

    From what I've read, the whole dance with keeping or getting rid of Herman and has caused waves. That, paired with stuff like UT leaking to the media that Charlie Strong was getting the axe, means any coach taking that job is on shaky ground as far as job security goes. Which is understandable why they'd go with someone like Sakisian and not one of the more desirable candidates.

    It doesn't look like he'll make a huge impact on bringing back UT's program. His work with the Huskies after Willingham's awful stint was just okay. Then his stint at USC. He was let go during the middle of the second season. The main thing to point out is that both of his successors at UW and USC surpassed his achievements. So that doesn't make it seem like he'll put UT at the top of the Big 12.

    After a really good World Series, I'm sure fans are wanting more after a stunted regular season. So far, players are going to start reporting to spring training in two months, play their first exhibition games a couple weeks later, and then the regular season will open on April 1st. But numbers of infection have risen in the past couple of weeks and stay at home orders are back. Then again a vaccine may be around the corner.

    It's still too early to tell, but I think it's solely dependent on whether or not the vaccines are successful, and how quickly things start to return to normal after they're distributed. I just don't feel like this will all happen before April hits. Are you just as pessimistic about this as I am?

    Floyd Mayweather is 5ft 8in and 150 pounds.

    I think this is a more interesting fight than you are giving it credit for. Sure Floyd is world class and Paul is certainly not. But Paul is a good boxer. And he is far stronger and bigger than Mayweather, who is not known to destroy fighters with knock out blows. He is known for defense, so I think this is certainly a money grab, but also more intriguing than just that.

    I'd have to agree. I think the difference between both fighters really makes it an interesting fight. I think the size difference just might even some things out across the board.

    I think they should shut it all down until further notice. We need to remind ourselves that sports is entertainment, it's not essential business. It should be a no-brainer not to risk public health for games.
