The world has pretty much come to a standstill because of the coronavirus pandemic. First the NBA suspended its season, then just about every other sport followed suit. MLB shut down spring training games, and announced that the start of the season would be postponed at least two weeks. Obviously, the goal here is to slow down the spread of the virus and keep as many people healthy as possible. We’re used to being able to turn to sports for a distraction when times are tough, however. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
How do you plan to wait out the start of the Yankees’ season?
We’re all used to a long offseason without baseball, but there are usually plenty of other sports to watch. That is no longer the case. How do you plan to occupy the time you’d typically spend watching baseball over the next few weeks and/or months? Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (March 20) for your post to be considered.
