Don’t Be A Bracket Buster; Put The Ball In Play
This is a plea to California Gov. Gavin Newsom to please open up the bars to indoor cheering for the upcoming March Madness Men’s NCAA basketball tournament.
You see, governor, March Madness is the playoffs for the sport. It involves 68 teams – way more than in any other sport – and brings in 10X that much interest because of brackets people fill out in a pool.
Sports bars are the generator of much of that interest because it’s a heck of a lot more fun to celebrate in triumph or rip up your bracket among a group of friends and strangers who are feeling the same emotions than it is sitting at home by yourself.
Being in a bar for March Madness provides us with an outlet to scream with victory or through the agony of defeat. It helps us release our built-up tensions, something we especially need to do after a year of being locked out of our sports watering holes.
Having been college baseball player, you should know what people rallying behind sports can do for society.
It you are worried that such a thing will spread the coronavirus then simply give everyone who wants to go to a bar for March Madness the vaccine. That was you know we will all be in a safe environment.
And don’t cry “it’s a supply issue.” If there are enough vaccines available to give shots to monkeys and gorillas at the San Diego Zoo, then there are enough to give PubClubbers wanting to go to a bar to watch their team play in March Madness.
After all, we’re the ones would be out spending money, helping the economy recover from the pandemic while supporting out local businesses.
So, Gov. Newsom. Don’t be a bracket buster. Open up the bars indoors for March Madness.
