While we are missing sports in a way we never really have before, I figured I’d share some of things I miss about sports even when they return to normal in the future…
Dirk…No explanation needed, really.
Home Whites…Since I can remember, the NFL has always had the home team rep its colors (except for teams like the Cowboys who wear the whites), but I miss the days when the NBA and NHL had its home teams wear white. Not only was there a comfort in that look, but it helped the road team really stand out. I loved seeing the different color schemes of the road teams when they’d make their rare trips to town. Now that they almost always wear white, they just blend in for the most part.
Following A Hooper…I’m an advocate for basketball players having the opportunity to go pro out of high school, so don’t take this the other way. When that was still allowed, you had college players staying and earning a familiarity with the national audience. You watched these guys grow and it added to the interest. I love the NBA and I love college hoops. The college product is never as good as the NBA’s, which is why the storylines are so important.
