"That's what i love. I love paul's audience. Why we love listening to the show. Just love listen. You guys were paul every single day. I'm excited to get to do that with you today and tomorrow now. Obviously one of the things that's on everybody's mind is the travel outlook for this fall. And really what we're talking about. We could be facing as soon as the olympics but all the way in to the fall football season so we're going to get a little expertise on that in the in the form of matt trout. Who joins us from. Sports travel magazine. You could check out a great article. He's got out there on sports magazine dot com talking about the latest sports at cove. Nineteen and really what everybody's trying to do. When it comes to opening stadiums to full capacity and matt. This is an interesting conversation and appreciate your joining the show. Sarah and i on. Spain and fitz have talked a lot about the olympics and some of the challenges. They're facing now is even japan. They're they're not sure that the olympics are safe so as you look at what every single league is trying to do to put forth the effort to put fans in stands. How confident are you at this. Point that we're gonna face what feels like a normal fall. I'm fairly confident. I think An thanks jason. Of course obviously for beyond. But i am fairly confident that we're going to be seen full stadiums In college football pro football all the pro spa sports by the fall. Especially you know you look at major league baseball. And and opening day Obviously the attention on texas rangers having a capacity crowd but everybody did have some restricted level of capacity. And you look at it now. And there's gonna be i think it's close to twenty teams by the fourth of july. That will be having their standing there. Stadium open at one hundred percent capacity. And i think when you go into the fall of the olympics obviously is a totally different animal because of the situation in japan. But i really believe that in this in college football season whether you're watching an sec. Game or pat close game or a group of five game that you're going to be seeing Stands that there might be one or two sections that are socially distanced but for the most part. I think you're gonna see everybody back to what it was. Almost in in in many ways a pre pandemic. Oh set up one of the most interesting things to me that you know. Even last year. I think major league baseball in some ways was sort of a guinea pig. Everybody else so baseball's able to get through the summer with the level of success that so far we're seeing is going to give everybody some encouragement. It does it matter that last year college football essentially said. Hey we'll let every stadium. Make their own decision because that could get more drastic. Is some stadiums decide to be completely full while others decide that they want to be closed. Some capacity that's that's a really good point and that's something where it'll be interesting to see whether or not conferences and especially in college football. We'll take the decision as to whether or not they want schools to be able to do them on a case by case basis or if they wanna have some general guidelines when it comes to Social distance sections vaccinated dissections things of that sort but overall i think the fact that lasts ball. They really didn't do that too much. I mean there are some conferences the big twelve or i'm sorry. The big ten to pack well decided to really close down their stadiums whereas the sec allowed to Schools to set whatever capacity. They felt comfortable with in their location. And i think you're gonna be seeing that again. Just want this wall and it's such a different experience like i'll go back to the nba playoffs. I keep saying this trae young hitting a game. Winning shot against the knicks and the bubble makes headlines for a few seconds trae young shushing spike lee becomes like an iconic thing that we're gonna talk about for years so it's not even just the fans in the stands. I feel like it's sort of changes the way all of us are viewing sports even when we're just watching it on tv. Which adds to a greater heightened sense of normalcy. Think that mentioned the trae young shot. I think sunday was really an was part of the article that i wrote about really the first time in a very long time probably since before the pandemic started that sports felt normal to watch again. Because you saw trae young and in almost sold out garden that was going absolutely beserk. And you see him doing that. And interacting with fans. That's something that sports is missed. Is the interaction between fans and the athletes that are on the field of play with the exception of wednesday night with fans who obviously crossed the line way beyond anything that is suitable in the nba. But then you also on sunday you look at the pga championship. And how fans just stormed and surrounded the eighteenth green for phil mickelson and it was. That's the spontaneity that you get when you see sand at sporting events that you people have missed and even when people have been at college football games over the past year. They were socially distanced. They you know they were very strict protocols in place to avoid that type of instant with the exception of maybe the notre dame field storm against clemson. So i think you're going to be seeing that more and more in the fall. And i think that's what fans are going to be interested in watching and seeing on tv because it just provides a giffen atmosphere. And it'll be interesting. I think in the fall to see whether or not attendance clients for some of these leaks and especially in college football because these are schools that are to need stands to return in large numbers. They were some attendance decreases before the pandemic already because casual fans were starting to not go to gains as much. They decided that sitting on a couch with a big. Tv was cheaper. And i am more you know just a better experience than them. Spending a lot of money to get a bad seat and whether or not. That's the meal that was when the before the pandemic when you were able to still be able to decide at spur of the moment. Hey i want to go to a game. Well the past twelve fourteen sixteen months. We really wouldn't have that ability so that casual fan now in this college football season. Say you know what. I enjoyed watching sports from my couch for the past year. Plus but i really really need to go to the games again and have experienced because college football programs. They they need that. Game day revenue they have to have that game day revenue especially coming out of the pandemic. Your blew my mind actually here in every great way. We're talking to matt. Senior editor.
