Column: What will Fans Talk About Without Sports?
What will we talk about on Monday? The day after the NCAA Tournament selection is a national event, with millions of bracket-fillers picking which Cinderella would dance to the regional final and which top seed would choke early. The brackets will forever be blank, and fans won't have baseball, the NBA or the NHL to watch either. Cable networks will have no live games and Twitter will have no highlights to react to, as most sports go quiet for weeks because of the virus that has disrupted life around the world.
