On Monday, Augusta National announced that it was rescheduling the 2020 Masters to November. Golf fans rejoiced, as they were treated with something beautiful (and novel) to look forward to.
It also got sports fans thinking: Whoa, this November could be the greatest sports month ever.
Listen, this is pre-supposing a lot of things. One, that we'll get the global coronavirus pandemic under control, or get to a point where sports could realistically be held safely. Two, that some of these sports will get seasons in this year, or start their seasons on time. Three, you know, that like a comet doesn't hit the Earth or the Yellowstone caldera blows or whatever.
Pending all that happening, it it plays out like we're hoping and this disease is somewhat under control by then, November 2020 could have:
- The Masters
- The World Series
- NFL football
- College football
- Premier League
- NBA basketball
- NHL hockey
That is … bananas.
Flipping over from NFL football to the Masters, then having a night cap of a World Series game … my brain just can't really process that. We're through the looking glass here.
Will any of this happen? I have no idea. It's silly to get excited about it, and for all we know, none of these sports will be happening. But it's fun, however briefly, to dream.

Cutler appears to be stranded in the Bahamas with his wife Kristin Cavallari and their friends, waiting out the coronavirus quarantine. He says it's been close to a month, which doesn't make sense math-wise, but Cutler was always about tossing footballs, not doing numbers. Anyway, may god have mercy on the staff who is trapped with him and his family.
