I wrote about the 1981 baseball season, which was probably weird at the time but seems less so now.

For @NYMag , a look at what the Bundesliga, the KBO, the NWSL and other sports leagues that have returned have done right, and what leagues still trying to return can learn from them.

For @NYMag , I wrote about the tightrope every major sports league is attempting to navigate ... and the nightmare scenario.

The Trolley Problem, but you're not just not pulling the lever, you're wearing a green hat and doing Jager shots as thousands of people get run over by the train.
