The coronavirus pandemic has virtually halted U.S. sports, but calls for sports to restart to provide entertainment for a largely home-bound nation have led some leagues to explore creative options to resume play. The Onion looks at potential ways for sports leagues to restart during coronavirus.
NBA: Help prevent virus’s spread by giving each player on court his own ball.
WWE: Only allow wrestlers to perform body slams through large plexiglass shields.
MLS: Yellow card to any player who gives another player coronavirus.
MLB: Require players to wear baseball gloves on both hands.
WNBA: Have floor cleaners regularly run out and mop droplets out of the air.
