It is Friday afternoon and I should have been in Edinburg, Texas by now. At the very least, checked into my hotel in McAllen. Disappointing times this COVID-19 has caused a lot of people. For what it is worth, two Dixie State series have been cancelled when I have requested credentials. The second game of the UVU-Seattle series was cancelled. That was frustrating because Tyler and I were in Seattle to cover that series. And now another series gets cancelled due to COVID-10. Perhaps I am just a bad luck charm or something.
Anyway, I discuss the issue at hand about fans at games, the comment from Jamie Boggs to the Las Cruces Sun News and more in this episode of the podcast. I am all for having fans at games as long as protocols are being followed. Is there a correlation between 900 fans at the GCU basketball games this past weekend and the postponements for this weekend? Probably not. The fans aren't even close to the floor. And Boggs even stated the same thing in her comment to the LCSN.
There are people on both sides of this. The Twitter banter has been quite interesting. People have their positions and aren't really wanting to budge either way. For what it is worth, organizations and institutions have a lot more data to process in regard to these decisions than people on Twitter will ever see.
Anyway, after that rant, I discuss the games this weekend. New Mexico State hosts California Baptist at Eastwood High in El Paso. Dixie State hosts Seattle who hasn't played in three weeks. It should be another fun weekend of WAC Hoops.
