Today brought some great news for both the NBA and NHL, which are starting again July 30th and August 1st respectively, resuming their seasons in bubbles.
First came this news from the NHL, which had just two players test positive for Covid-19 out of 800 players and over 2,600 tests:

And if you can believe it, the NBA has even *better* news:
Yahoo Sources: Of 346 players test players tested for COVID-19 on campus since the last announcement on July 13, zero have returned positive tests.

Knock on wood, but it is really looking, at this point, like these two leagues are going to pull this return off. The games cannot start soon enough.
