    After mandates issued by Illinois Gov. Jerry Pritzker, this even was cancelled based on crowd size restrictions. The show was officially shut down Thursday evening while a number of dealers were using the evening for early table/booth set-up. No word as of now as to whether the event is totally cancelled or whether it'll be held at a later date.

    Also now on the sports-related cancellation list:

    Upcoming PGA and LPGA golf tournaments, including the Masters in early April.

    The Football Hall of Fame Fan Fest, scheduled for next weekend. However, the general museum grounds are still scheduled to remain open.

    Both NASCAR and the Indy Car Series both plan to hold the next racing event for each one, but without fans in the stands.

    The ECHL has announced the cancellation of the remainder of their regular season plus their playoffs. The AHL has not made an official announcement as of yet, but is considering doing likewise.

    Meanwhile, the UFC circuit has announced that only a full government shutdown will cause them to postpone or cancel UFC bouts.

    It looks like offseason activities in the NFL are also being affected. While free agency is still a go, the draft, scheduled for late April, may be postponed, as the Las Vegas casinos owned by MGM and Caesar's are shutting down, with neither planning to re-open until May 1.

    It was reported a few hours ago that if MLB is active again at the time, the 3-game series in London between the Cubs and Cardinals has been cancelled in terms of being played in the great British city.

    In the nation where the pandemic began, the Chinese Basketball Association, in which about 40 Americans play, has delayed their planned resumption of their season, pushing it back from early April to sometime in May.

    While a number of sports personalities have tested positive for COVID19, the virus has now affected two bigger names in sports.

    Knicks/New York Rangers owner James Dolan has apparently tested positive for COVID 19, as has Jacksonville Jaguars legend Tony Boselli. In Boselli's case, the virus caused him to be hospitalized and placed in ICU.
