    Unhappy Change in plans, and not a happy one

    Organizers for this summer's Tokyo Olympics have decided to allow fans to attend the events of the Games, but with a couple of catches.

    First, all venues will be limited to either 50% of capacity or 10,000 fans.

    Second, fans in attendance will NOT be allowed to cheer for the athletes.

    Finally, fan attendance will be limited to only residents of Japan.

    Japan is far behind the USA in terms of vaccinations. According to the New York Times, only about 18% of the Japanese population has received even one dose of the vaccine, and roughly 7.3% of the populace has been fully vaccinated.

    It was announced earlier today that fans will be kept out of the venues of all 2021 Summer Olympics events, whether they are Japanese residents or otherwise.

    It's still not over.

    The Thursday night game between the Yankees and Red Sox has been postponed due to one or more positive COVID19 test results on the Yankees.
