It's not a true meritocracy. Either if you listen Ashort, questions, listen to long answers either our country. All right I'm, GonNa go to this as joy said. We are there are hopeful signs we will get sports. In. July. I am a little disappointed in the NBA. They're saying now if the NBA goes to a game seven. It would be October twelfth so the NBA. Unlike baseball has never put its playoffs. Up Against the NFL baseball has asked him. How works if the Yankees are in it? Not Well. Because of budget shortfalls because of our pandemic economic situation. States are now passing legislation on gambling quickly. What does it mean? We Gamble on football. We Watch football more than we've ever watched it. Last year. The ratings went. Even as Our Television Choices Netflix Amazon Prime Hulu are more fragmented. What does that mean? Football's getting bigger and more powerful than ever. We've got an Italian soccer league. They were a hot spot for the virus. They're starting here in a couple of weeks disneyworld opening. Up Vegas is opening up. This seems like the NBA was really concerned about the beginning of the NBA season, and maybe not as concerned about the end date of the season. I'm a married guy, so I have to make choices with sports I mean. My wife understands I'm a sports caster. I have to watch a lot of sports. But I want to remain married, and so there are times I have to make choices. Just to give you an idea. The NBA will be fine if Lebron and the Lakers make the finals.

Good luck going up against the monster known as the NFL and college football. College football is king. God world pro football king. Kong we ain't never going to compete with them. We should start the NBA season around Christmas so I think we should show. Seventy five or seventy games Christmas should be the big day like we do every year. We have set five games on Christmas Day that would be a great way to start the NBA season. Why are we starting in the Middle College football season pro football I mean it's just too much going on. We're trying to compete for dollars and now think about this now collins. There's GonNa be worse going forward trying to compete with those dollars of the NFL and college football.
