    The jersey-wearing camaraderie. The scent of sizzling sausages. The buzz before a big game. 
    The distinctive atmosphere of live sports, that feeling in the air, will return in time as pandemic restrictions are eased. But will that very air be safe in a closed arena with other fans in attendance?
    The billions of dollars spent on state-of-the-art sports facilities over the last quarter-century have made high-efficiency air filtration systems more common, thanks in part to the pursuit of green and healthy building certifications. Upgrades will likely increase in the post-coronavirus era, too.
    The problem is that even the cleanest of air can’t keep this particular virus from spreading; if someone coughs or sneezes, those droplets are in the air. That means outdoor ballparks have high contaminant potential, too.

    The American Basketball Association (ABA) announced that the Reno Rogues have been added to its expansion for the upcoming season that will begin in November.
    “Reno is a great sports and entertainment city,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman, “and we were very surprised when the G-League abandoned Reno and headed to California. It left a great opening and two excellent owners have jumped in to fill the void.” 
    The team will be owned and operated by Grind Athletics, LLC who also own and operate the Idaho Outlaws ( and IdahoOutlawsABA on Twitter) of the ABA.

    Something is finally clear in the uncertain NBA: Players believe they’re going to play games again this season.
    The obvious questions — How? Where? When? — remain unanswered. Testing, part of the new normal of this coronavirus era, will be a major component to any return-to-play plan that the NBA comes up with.

    The NFL is taking baby steps toward full reopenings for its teams. It has no other choice.
    No long throws downfield. Mostly halfback dives into the line.
    There are so many issues that must be addressed with the opening of team facilities across the nation. Just because a handful of clubs returned executives and other staff — no coaches or players — to their complexes on Tuesday does not foreshadow a quick return to business as usual. Or close to it.

    Add boxing to the list of sports on the comeback trail.
    Promoter Bob Arum said Thursday he plans to stage a card of five fights on June 9 at the MGM Grand, the first of a series of fights over the next two months at the Las Vegas hotel. A second fight card will be held two nights later, with ESPN televising both cards, kicking off twice weekly shows at the hotel in June and July.
    No fans will be allowed, and Arum said fighters and everyone else will be tested at least twice during fight week for the new coronavirus. 
    The fights are pending approval of the Nevada Athletic Commission, which meets next week to consider the events, along with two cards that the UFC plans to stage at its facility in Las Vegas.

    NCAA officials noted that the workouts could go on as long as all local, state and federal regulations are followed. The status of voluntary workouts for other sports will be determined later.
