The Louisiana High School Athletics Association has announced that all springs sports have been canceled for the remainder of the year.

That is just the latest cancellation of sporting events not only in our state, but also across the country and even the world. In addition to wreaking havoc on our economy and disrupting our personal lives, COVID-19 has turned the sports world upside down.

In a world filled with tough times and the stresses of daily life, sports has offered us a chance to get away from those stresses.

During this coronavirus pandemic, I've really missed watching sports. While football is my absolute favorite sport and the 2020 high school, college, and pro football seasons are still scheduled to go (at least for now), there are some great sporting events that have been canceled over the last few weeks that I was excited about.
