Is it time to bring back sports?

As stay-at-home orders begin relaxing across the world, sports teams are looking at their own policies and making adjustments. Some teams have a plan in place to open up practice facilities and even have games as early as May 16. With the globe ravaged by the coronavirus, having sports come back and provide some normalcy and joy should be a high priority. Still, these athletes are human and deserve to be protected until they can safely entertain us without risking their lives. What do you think?

It's approaching two months with no sports and sports fans are grasping at straws to stay sane. But with some states and countries relaxing stay-at-home orders, those puzzles, home Olympics and home projects may fall by the wayside.

Bundesliga is back in action on May 16 and the NBA is planning to reopen practice facilities in accordance with health organization recommendations. And it couldn't come at a better time.

Fans are starved for something normal. Sports bring joy to millions across the world. If we hope to recover from this horrific pandemic, sports need to come back if it's deemed safe by health organizations.

I guess the dollar is more important than the human. People miss sports, seeing families, hanging out in public without fear, but that doesn't mean they should be rushing into anything that may result in a backslide. The world isn't rid of this illness yet and until it is gone, nothing, not even sports, should return to normal.

These athletes have families and loved ones. If one gets infected, the spread could be catastrophic, killing more people and delaying sports even longer. Why take a risk when you don't need to?

Sports will come back in due time, but rushing it now is not the answer.
