Phil Mickelson hinted that he and Tiger Woods might be setting up a match to be played soon…would Sip tune in for that in these sports-starved times?

-Mickelson hinted at the possibility in a Twitter exchange on Sunday, and said there would be more details soon. The Masters has already been postponed, as well as the U.S. Open, and all sorts of other sporting events…wouldn’t it just make perfect sense for this match to happen to save sports fans?

Some believe that the NFL and/or NBA should look at the Midwest to play their games this season if COVID-19 doesn’t slow down…sounds like Sip’s idea got stolen

-Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggested the NFL should have a contingency plan to play their games “in the middle of nowhere”—meaning the Midwest—and there have been similar comments made about the NBA, too, as coronavirus has not spread as badly in the center of the Midwest as it has in most other places

-Take Sip’s idea for college football to do his idea and play in small towns, and then blow that up times a million with the idea of NBA and NFL games being played in venues in Nebraska or other towns. Can you even imagine?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-If you had the option to play an abbreviated football season with no postseason or no football season at all, what would you choose and what would players choose?

-Sip thinks if fans aren’t allowed to be at games in the Fall, that games should be played in small-town stadiums to make it less awkward for players and TV viewing…thoughts?

-The NFL Draft is still on as planned with no change to the dates…can teams really have full evaluations of players in time for that with the current nationwide quarantining?
