Now what’s going to happen is we’ll go on a run and sent to Enterprise and we won’t be able to go

I'm trying to wrap my head around the emotions I'd endure in this scenario.

Have to assume the rest of the A-10 tourney won't be played in front of fans, right?

I've seen a few media people hypothesize that games will be televised with no announcers and no sound

Let's hope that's all they are doing.

Is it possible that they will take this round by round?

I don't see why you wouldn't have announcers and sound.  The house mics won't take anyone extra to set up and you can have the announcers do the game from a studio.

-okay, I imagine the thoughts are stewing in various locales on how to exploit the phrase "essential staff and limited family" -- I wonder if it is possible that say, oh, a school from a few miles away might know someone at, for example, PNC Arena that allows for a bunch of blue-clad "essential staff and limited family" to be in attendance when they take the court -- yes, I read the SN article that they haven't played first round in NC since 2015

-I hope we get the same type of relationship with an usher at Enterprise

I don't think so.  I think this is it.  I think this is just the start of the announcements of this type.  Other leagues and organizations are just getting their ducks in a row before they make an announcement.   I'm guessing phone calls were made this afternoon informing people the President's speech tonight will call for the end mass gatherings of people like sporting events until they think this crisis has passed.

I think the reference to media attendance still has more to do with how much access media will have to the teams.  Not that the games will be played in front of single unmoving camera with no play-by-play.

I've read so many snippets on the coronavirus the past few days, I can't remember if it was from an article referenced here or not....but if you're a healthy young specimen, now is the time to travel. Obviously you would want to avoid places such as China, Italy, etc. but I'd have to imagine there are some pretty amazing deals out there right now. 

You know there is perverse inverse logic to this. When business is good, and the salesmen (car, travel, what have you) are trying to meet a monthly or quarterly quota to improve their income or bonus, the prices go down. A cruise ship with a few empty cabins will provide a good discount before departure time.

However, if you have an economic recession going on, the new cars are parked on the lots unsold and the total number of units sold is minimal, they will try to get as much as they can out of each sale. Same thing applies for hotel rooms when the hotel is really having trouble filling rooms.

The idea here is that if you are buying cars or traveling at that time, you need to do it for whatever reason and they will try to get  as much as they can.

Not practical Roy, you eventually run out of food and toilet paper.

See, this is bizarre. People are driving/flying from everywhere. If games are okay to be played in NYC on Sunday, I have a hard time believing it won't work everywhere else by next weekend.

Approximately 1 million people attend the NCAA tournament. There may be 50,000 attendees for an entire A10 tournament.  You're comparing apples to watermelons.
