When sports is the most important utterly non-important thing in the world

This is an unprecedented period in sports that no doubt will leave its mark on sports history. Essentially, all sport-ing events have been cancelled across the entire globe. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament, and the Copa America are a few of the major events that have been postponed so far. Meanwhile football, motorsports, basketball, baseball, tennis, rugby, and ice-hockey are some examples of sports where national and international competitions have been either cancelled or indefinitely suspended. In many sports, 2020 will mark the first time that champions were not crowned, at least since the end of World War II.
