June 17, 1994
- OJ Simpson Bronco car chase
- Arnold Palmer played final round of the 1994 US Open
- 1994 FIFA World Cup hosted for first time ever in by the US
- New York Rangers Stanley Cup Finals parade in NYC
- Game 5 of the NBA Finals – Knicks vs. Rockets
Until yesterday, March 11, 2020, this was the craziest day in sports history with six major events happening throughout the day. While yesterday was a little different in the fact of a breaking news timeline as opposed to to events happening across the Nation like FIFA World Cup, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Finals Parade, and US Open.
Here is a look of the timeline from yesterday:
March 11, 2020
We are now going to be likely entering the territory of ZERO sports and events at any and all levels. Many of these tournaments closed their tournaments to the general public, but once a player or staff member is confirmed with Coronavirus, that tournament/event will follow suit with the NBA.
Sooner than later we will be at a day of ZERO sports and events taking place. A day that the likes of this world likely hasn’t seen in about a hundred years.
We are potentially setting up for June (or July) Madness. The craziest day in sports history might be upon us, in terms of events/games happening at the same time. If the NCAA Men’s/Women’s basketball, hockey, and gymnastics post season tournaments are suspended like the NBA season is, we might get all these resuming at the same time in June or July. Something that world of sport has never seen before!
