Sports Talk: I did sports talk radio show last week at First Community Bank in Tallassee and was asked the question, 'What are you going to talk about?' It was a good question.

Since there is (at the moment) no sports going on, it can be difficult to talk about it. And then again, maybe not.

We are missing the NCAA Basketball Tournament right now. That would be a hot topic. But, by now most of your brackets would've been trashed.

How much actual X's and O's do we talk? Much of the stuff that's being said around the water cooler is off the field or off the court.

There's no doubt that Tom Brady's move to Tampa Bay would be center stage right now - no matter which Cinderella team might have pulled the upset during the Big Dance.

We could talk about NASCAR or the start of Major League Baseball if those things were happening, but I find what is happening now to be more intriguing.

It's sad that seasons could be coming to an end. Some have already been canceled. The future of sports, like everything else, is uncertain.

Will there be an SEC Football Media Days in Atlanta this year? That has a tentative date in July.

Will the high school and college seasons go forward as planned. That seems like a long way out but it's really not.

I'm hopeful but not overly optimistic that we'll finish our high school and youth seasons that started this spring.

Meanwhile, ESPN is actually airing professional wrestling and headis (google it).

I watched headis last night. It's two guys standing at a ping pong table hitting something that resembles a volleyball with their heads. That's what we're subjected to watching. And I am.

If the governor's restrictions remain on events with 25 or more people and the six feet apart thing, then our regular way of living will remain on hold while we're holed up binge watching Netflix or headis.
