Are there any sports fans on here that are still fans of any of the four major sports?

That is, the NBA, NHL, NFL, or Major League Baseball? I used to be a fan of all four, but with all the crap going on right now with "woke" professional athletes, I'm a fan of only the NHL and Baseball anymore. There IS a lot of the "woke" bullshit going on in baseball, but I'm a still a fan, mainly because I've been a fan now for 50 years. And I'm a "stat hound", interested in the stats of baseball, and there are a LOT of them. I'm still a fan of the NHL, as well, because like baseball, I've been a fan since 1970. Plus there seems to be very little "woke" bullshit going on in hockey.

I still watch but I long ago quit spending any money on it at the professional level. It's messed up when one guy can sign a contract for $500 million but the kids around the stadium can't afford a ticket.

It's just baseball and golf for me. They aren't nearly as in your face with BLM as the NBA and what I assume NFL will be.

Who was your favorite tennis player to watch live?
Well it was Federer then Agassi then Nadal
Wow, three great ones! I've never been to a professional tennis match. I would have liked to see those three in their prime. Pete Sampras is another one I wish I had seen live.
Federer is very broken down now , but Nadal still plays at high high level
Do you live near LA or Cincinnati

How are things in Vegas right now? Are they OK, or are things a bit scary there?
Well
Most of the city I avoid !!
I only go to 4 places !!! One is home and one is work
The metro area is full of drug addicts , con artist, degenerates and homeless bums

Nope to either city. I live in Valparaiso, Indiana, in the Northwest corner of the state. I'm only 60-65 miles from downtown Chicago, but I haven't been there since 2012. And I don't ever plan on returning there.

It sounds like you're being careful, that's a good thing.

If you’re a big tennis fan ..I recommend you look into the 2021 Cincinnati masters in August .
Nadal is still playing great
