Masters is postponed ie canceled. Logistics will make it impossible to have the masters as usual. The Augusta economy is built around the Masters, folks vacation so they can rent their houses, kids are on spring break so families can leave. And good luck having it in the summer with a heat index in the 120s. No, the masters is not happening this year.
Yep it will be difficult; but I think they will find a window; maybe in the Fall. The Masters must be played; mustin It? lol

This kind of reminds me of 1963 (yes, I'm that old), when JFK was assassinated. It was the only thing on TV, everything else was cancelled.

Of course, there were only about 7-9 TV stations at the time. It was eerie.

I sure wish they would televise previous March Madness games - maybe pick a year and replay it or replay all the upsets from the first two rounds. I'd watch.

Yup, only 3 channels and you had to watch whatever big sister/brother/mom or dad was watching!

Young folks don’t know how good they have it!
I remember Dad had to go up on the roof to turn the antenna to get the NBC affiliate...I also recall us being the only family on the block not to sign up for cable because Dad said it wouldn't last...before he died he had like the premium package lol I also recall us having one TV with sound on top of another with picture only for awhile 😁

I distinctly remember trying to covince my dad to buy dial up internet and him looking at me like it was the dumbest idea he had ever heard.

Yep Dad said same thing about cell phones and debit cards...they were fads lol...he also wouldn't buy a car with electric windows because "that was one more thing to go wrong on a car you have to pay to fix" Dad just needed a boat and fishing rod to live happily
