The noise of the coronavirus seemed to hit the loudest this week.
The virus, which had been around for quite the while, found its way into the world of sports. With some professional athletes catching the virus and showing symptoms, the sports world went into a frenzy.
Events were cancelled. League games were postponed, with some having no chance of resuming again, until all the pandemonium goes away.
Was not exactly the news we were all looking to hear, however, with the status of the virus entering pandemic levels, those precautionary measures were necessary.
Now that the deed has been done, what do we do with our weekends? Are you scared of the prospect of a terribly boring weekend?
It doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.
Coronavirus may have stopped almost all the sporting action there is to enjoy. However, you can still make the most of your weekend in these four ways:
Catch a replay of all that has happened so far
It’s been quite an eventful football season, to say the least. A lot has gone down in the last six months. And while you’re staring at the next three weeks (at least) without football, you can always refresh your mind by having a recap of all that has happened.
From the tight title race in Italy, to Liverpool’s Premier League dominance, the UEFA Champions League journey so far and the topsy-turvy title race in La Liga, there’s plenty of memories to refresh this weekend.
You can be sure your favourite sports channels won’t disappoint in bringing these memories back. Or simply stream online if you have the data for it.
You thought there were no more football games or other sporting events to bet on?
Yesterday’s blog post was all about reassuring bettors that there’s still plenty of cash to be made, despite the coronavirus.
While all footballing activities in Asia and most parts of Europe have been postponed, there’s still a lot of action going down in at least five countries, including,
- New Zealand
- United Arab Emirates
Read a Book
These suspensions do not mean the end of the world, right? Football (and other sports) will surely be back when the worst is over. However, no one knows when that will be.
In light of this, it will be wrong to spend your weekend being miserable about what could have been.
Instead of imagining Aubameyang or Erling Haaland scoring and helping you to earn some extra cash, how about you grab a book and learn something new?
Surely there must be a book (or webpage) you’ve been postponing all these while. With no sporting events on T.V, now’s the time to find out what’s in that book.
Learn a New Skill (or Upgrade the Existing One)
However you choose to look at it, this is the perfect time to add to your repertoire of skills or improve the one(s) you already have.
Whether you want to do the learning in a physical class or you want to take advantage of the internet, it’s totally up to you.
Make the most of this weekend (and the ones to come). Opt to use the many resources at your disposal to spend your time effectively this weekend. Learn something new and get better.
