Top 5 Friday: Epic Moments That Won't Be the Same Without Fans


Some of us have (I know I have) gotten used to watching sports with no fans in the stands, but this list will highlight some potential upcoming moments that just won't feel the same. Epic returns, titles, and stadium openings...you'll see. List below:

5. LSU Raising the Banner- 2019 was such a special year for the Tigers and for CFB. They won the title and were arguably the best team of all time. On 9/26 they open @ home in Baton Rouge against Miss State and their fans won't be there to see them raise the banner. That's a moment lost.

4. Stadium Openings in the NFL: Imagine being on the crew that worked on the new Raiders stadium in Vegas or the builder of SOFI in LA where the Rams and Chargers are going to play. 1st game in the building...crickets. Stadium openings in the NFL are always so exciting because the fans are pumped to be in their new home.

3. Bucs Sellouts: Last year, the Bucs ranked 3rd worst in attendance last year in the NFL. With the additions of Brady/Gronk, not only would that have changed, they probably would sellout every game and rank towards the top of the league. Unfortunately for them, that's now not possible.

2. Lakers Winning a Title @ Staples Center: Now, to be fair, there's no guarantee that this would happen like the other options listed so far...but...if it did, this would be an epic moment for sports fans everywhere, whether you like the Lakers or not. Seeing the Lakers hoisting up a trophy at the end of a tumultuous year, after losing Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna in January, you can bet, that would've been an all time emotional moment in sports.

Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

1. The Return of McKenzie Milton @ the Bounce House: Can you imagine if KZ was able to make a comeback and run out onto the field in front of Knights fans in Orlando...the roar you would hear that day on campus? It gives me chills just thinking about it. I hope that moment is not robbed of McKenzie or of us as fans.
