ONN – Where Does The Coronavirus Stack Up Against Other American Sports Disruptions? My Answer
My friend Ric Serritella asked this question on Facebook:
Where does the coronavirus stack up against these other outside-the-lines sports disruptions?
9/11, Magic Johnson’s 1991 announcement that he had AIDS, President Ronald Reagan being shot on the day of the NCAA title game in 1981,tThe 1972 Munich Olympics, the Orioles playing without fans in 2015 when there was unrest on the streets of Baltimore, NFL games being played just after President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, the bombing of Pearl Harbor during NFL games in December 7, 1941 and Darryl Stingley paralyzed by a ferocious hit on the football field in 1978. In all these instances, it seemed like sports just didn’t matter very much. (courtesy of Dave Halberstam)
My answer is that the Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic. Period. The whole industrialized world is impacted.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
