The coronavirus pandemic is rocking the sports arena as we speak. There have been multiple team outbreaks throughout the NFL, forcing some teams to postpone games several times. In addition, college football and basketball have seen games cancelled. 

Back in March, the pandemic forced sports across the country to come to a screeching halt. The NBA eventually wrapped up their playoffs in a bubble that proved to be successful. Now sports institutions are gritting their teeth and attempting to play through the chaos.

Some say it may be time to put things on hold. What do you think? Today on AirTalk, we check in on the landscape of sports amid rising cases. Give us a call at 866-893-5722.
