Germany’s top soccer league is hoping to return in a couple of weeks.

The German Football League, the governing body that oversees Bundesliga, is hoping in a best case scenario that the league will be able to resume on May 9th without fans in attendance. They feel like they are well prepared to do what it takes to ensure players safety and combat the spread or potential outbreaks of COVID-19 that could take place between players.

“If we start on May 9, we are ready. If it is later, we will be ready again,” said DFL chief executive Christian Seifert.

As optimistic as he is, he emphasizes that it ultimately isn’t up to him or anybody in the league. The government will have the final say regardless.

“For us, what is decisive is what the politicians will decide. It is not for us to decide when.” added Seifert.

“Games without spectators are not what we want – but at the moment the only thing that seems feasible.”

Some shocking news coming out of the NBA.

After a scary experience with an irregular heartbeat, veteran big man LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to put his health first and retire from the game of basketball.

“Though I’m better now, what I felt with my heart that night was still one of the scariest things I’ve experience,” said Aldridge.

“With that being said, I’ve made the difficult decision to retire from the NBA. For 15 years, I’ve put basketball first, and now, it is time to put my health and family first.”

The 35-year old had just signed with the Brooklyn Nets on March 28 after being waived from the San Antonio Spurs following the trade deadline.

The seven-time All-Star averaged 19.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists over 15 seasons and 1,029 career games split between the Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Nets.

The Colorado Avalanche are going to have to get by without their starting goalie for a little while.

The team has confirmed that Philipp Grubauer will be sidelined for at least two weeks after being placed in the NHL COVID-19 protocol after a positive COVID-19 test.

“It’ll be at least 14 days before his next game,” said Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar.

“Not ideal, but I know he’ll be hungry to get back in the net when he’s healthy.”

The 29-year old has posted a 25-8-1 record with a 2.00 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and five shutouts in 34 games this season.
