This week was certainly a crazy one. I had planned on driving to Denver early Thursday morning for the Crossroads Qualifier and by the time Thursday night was over, I didn't think I could be that exhausted NOT driving 12 hours in the car by myself. As the dominos started falling Wednesday, it all seemed to be happening too fast to comprehend. With Spokane and Indy getting cancelled, I figured that Crossroads wasn't far behind and made the decision to stay home. The constant stream of communication with college coaches and parents Thursday through Saturday did make me feel like I was at a Qualifier. We seemed to go really quickly from "Games with no fans" to just shutting everything down. Some college coaches were talking to me about their admin not letting them travel for up to two weeks; then the NCAA came down with a Dead Period, officially giving colleges and coaches no choice in the matter. The USAV and volleyball clubs followed suit by closing their doors, cancelling tournaments and cancelling practices and lessons. So by Monday (Today) there is no volleyball, no NBA, NHL or NBA, no NCAA Basketball Tournament and no Spring sports to speak of really either.
