COVID and the NFL インクル子ども英会話浜松市



Today I'd like to talk about how the corona virus could effect the future of sports. Fall is quickly approaching, meaning the start of the NFL season in the US will be starting soon. Many Americans are wondering, "will we be able to enjoy a 2020 NFL season?". The answer is unclear at this point. Some factors experts are considering are as follows:

- Social Distancing -
Football is a contact sport. Meaning the players often come into direct contact with one another. It seems nearly impossible to play the sport with zero contact.

- Gear -
Football players already wear an assortment of gear including helmets, shoulder pads, mouth guards, etc. Could we require these athletes to wear masks as well? Would it effect their ability to play?

- Fans -
The NFL is a highly profitable league. Millions of fans every year visit their teams local stadium to enjoy one of these games. I'm sure the NFL still want the fans to come watch. But would it be a safe environment?

These are all legitimate concerns by the officials in the league. What do you think they should do? Should they cancel the 2020 season? What other sports have been effected by the virus?


今日はコロナウイルスがスポーツの未来にどのように影響するかについてお話ししたいと思います。秋が間近に迫っています。つまり、米国でのNFLシーズンの開始が間もなく始まります。多くのアメリカ人は、「2020 NFLシーズンを楽しむことができるだろうか?」と思っています。現時点では、答えは不明です。専門家が検討しているいくつかの要因は次のとおりです。

  • 人混みを避ける -
  • 装備 -

NFLは非常に収益性の高いリーグです。毎年何百万人ものファンがチームのローカルスタジアムを訪れ、これらのゲームの1つを楽しんでいます。 NFLは今でもファンに見に来てほしいと思っています。しかし、それは安全な環境でしょうか?
