NBA At Walt Disney Resorts, NHL’s Phase 2, Little League World Series Canceled, Will Ferrell Crashes Seahawks Mtg


The NBA is discussing a few different venues as host sites for teams to play and finish the season. Las Vegas and the Bahamas are been mentioned, but according to new reports, the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida is now the frontrunner. The  Wide World of Sports Complex (225 acres) has plenty of on-site housing and enough facilities to accommodate the players and teams.


The NHL is hoping to get back on the ice by the summer. They issued a joint press release with the NHL Players Association stating, “The precise date of transition to Phase 2, during which Players might return to small group activities in NHL Club training facilities, remains undetermined. However, provided that conditions continue to trend favorably – and, subject to potential competitive concerns as between disparately situated markets – we believe we may be able to move to Phase 2 at some point in the mid-to-later portion of May.”


Due to Coronavirus concerns, the Little League World Series has been canceled for the first time in the history of the tournament, which has been played every year since 1947. Little League president Stephen Keener did not rule out teams playing this spring or summer but specified that, due to restrictions on large gatherings and travel, it would be irresponsible to hold the qualifying tournaments and the World Series.


Will Ferrell crashed a virtual team meeting with the Seattle Seahawks by pretending to be their new teammate Greg Olsen, who previously played tight end for the Carolina Panthers and in February signed to a one-year deal with the Seahawks. Watch Ferrell as he hilariously jokes with the team and even shows off his “36-year-old yoga body.”
