7.8.2020 – positivity?

positivity?
that train has run out of gas
stark reality now

Last Friday, ESPN sportscaster Paul Finebaum spoke bluntly about college football’s chances to be played this fall.

Finebaum’s comments appeared in an article written by Scott Fowler of Charlotte Observer

I think the likelihood of college football is slipping away by the day. … It’s remarkable to think from holiday to holiday — Memorial Day to the Fourth of July — what has happened.

I would say on Memorial Day it was a slam dunk. It was going to happen. There could be some complications. As we hit the next big holiday of the year, which is the last holiday before Labor Day, it seems like everything has gone the wrong way.

And when I say that, it’s not even the complications within the sport, which are massive … It’s just the (COVID-19) spikes around the country are happening at probably the worst possible time to safely execute college football.

Almost all of the confidence has gone out the window. …

It could get better, but I don’t see how it can get better before the decisions have to be made.

So that’s why I think the positivity train — it has run out of gas.

You’re going to start hearing some stark reality now.

The article and comments were about College football.

Almost all of the confidence has gone out the window.

So that’s why I think the positivity train — it has run out of gas.
