Say there was no COVID-19. 

Heath Curry would be in the stands at Riverside Park watching his son Ryker on the diamond for Iola High, and I’d be there snapping pictures and carrying out the rest of my game day routine that I miss so dearly. 

Unfortunately, that is not the case. Following the postponement of the NBA’s season on March 11, sporting events around the world followed suit in an orderly manner, leaving fans searching for ways to fill the void.
