On Headline Sports with Barbara:

#1 Quarterback Jordan Ta’mau signed with the St Louis Battlehawks of the XFL. Ta’mau was formerly with the Kansas City Chiefs. Ta’mau before the season was suspended threw for 1,050 yards and led the XFL with 12 touchdowns. The signing is expected to strengthen the XFL’s brand and gives players who didn’t get a chance to stay in the NFL to get some playing time and a contract.

#2 The Indoor Football League’s Oakland Panther’s like the rest of the IFL season is on hold during the pandemic but if they ever get this season off the ground which would be the inaugural season for the Panthers and the 11th season for the IFL the Panthers would be the proud team to have the largest capacity in the league with some 19,596 seats at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

#3 Granted that the pandemic would come to an end by June or July there is that possibility that baseball could return. The teams might need June to play some more exhibition games and open the regular season through September and play the post season in October.

#4 Major League Soccer also shares that interest that they could return after playing only two weeks of the regular season after being suspended. MLS could return by June or July and play through October.

#5 The New York Yankees Aaron Judge has gone through the mill suffering a number of injuries even last season he sat some time out. This season after the MLB season went on suspension Judge had to recover from a rib injury and collapsed lung Judge says his condition has improved and he’s anxious to get back to work. The state of Florida has not imposed an essential shut down so players can stay and work out and continue to try and get prepared.

#2 The NBA is already talking about having their season run through August if they can get back by either May or June and have the playoffs in August.

#3 14 to 15 Tahoe ski resorts have closed down due to the Coronavirus scare which have three to four feet of snow and skiers would have to leave the Tahoe Region. Some couldn’t leave because the roads were closed.

#4 The NFL approved a 17 game season and a three game pre season totaling 20 games. With higher salaries, more players on the roster and larger pensions for current and former players.

#5 Indoor Football League was the last league to cancel their games postponing their opening days last Saturday. The ban that allows 50 or less people to gather killed any chance for an indoor football opener.
