The IOC announced early Monday morning that the summer games would start July 23, 2021.

Well, I guess we now have some exact details instead of just wondering what the hell would happen after the games got postponed.
Am I happy that we have to wait so long to get some action? No, I’m not happy at all. I think I speak for sports fans everywhere when I say I’m not happy.

However, we at least have a date on the calendar that we can circle and look forward to. That’s better than nothing.
I think we can all agree that having something to look forward to with a concrete date is a huge step in the correct direction.
Hopefully, coronavirus will be a thing of the past by the time July 2021 rolls around. If not, then we’re going to have much bigger problems than the Olympics to worry about.
