High-fives will become a thing of the past

According to CBS, high-fives AND fist bumps have been banned in Major League Baseball.

 

Handshakes between teammates and opponents are also on hold.

No touching!

 

MLB is banning spitting in all forms.

Both sunflower seeds and smokeless tobacco will be prohibited from the park. Let’s see how this one goes…

 

Players can’t lick their fingers

Say goodbye to spit balls and loogie curves. Instead, pitchers can carry a wet rag in their pockets to moisten their fingers.

 

Celebrations and rousing halftime speeches in the locker room won’t be allowed in the NFL

Locker rooms must be reconfigured to ensure a 6 foot distance between players so getting them all pumped up – or even addressing them all at once – will be tough.

Team workouts will be limited

Strength and conditioning workouts will be limited to 15 people, so staggered scheduling will be necessary.

 

The NFL is still working on a socially distant huddle.

Sports writer Charean Williams suggested a future where the huddle was replaced by speakers in all the players’ helmets, so the coach is able to convey plays directly into their ears.

 

Golfers won’t remove balls from holes on the greens

Hole-liners and objects to stop the ball from falling all the win in have been implemented.

 

Caddies won’t be handling golfer’s clubs and equipment

Golfers are being encouraged to remove the clubs from their bag themselves.

 

Tennis players are discouraged from picking up tennis balls

Instead, they should use their feet or racket to pick up tennis balls and serve them. Seems….tricky.

Ring announcers and ring girls won’t be allowed in boxing rings

Only fighters, trainers and the referee were allowed in the ring when Top Rank Boxing returned to Las Vegas for its first match.

 

Crowded sporting events might be a thing of the past

At least until we get a vaccine, it’s hard to imagine a league that will be able to have fans packed into the stadium. Bummer.

Relief,Well, considering it's killed 130,000+ US citizens and millions are denying it, it's beating Milgram into a cocked hat.
