That's a great letter. Informative, realistic yet hopeful... what you would expect from a good leader.

Looking forward to seeing what they come up with in terms of making streams of classic games available (as mentioned).

TD's message also includes an initial word of caution about whether action in sports will be possible this fall.

I am thinking everyone may be taking a year off of formal education. It wouldn't be the end of the world.

It wouldn't be the end of hte world but it's not going to happen. They may be online a lot longer than we'd all like to anticipate
