Sporting events have taken a beating amid coronavirus lockdown with most of the events either being cancelled or being postponed. These include events like Wimbledon 2020, Tokyo Olympics, IPL, Euro 2020 and many more.
With so much either cancelled or postponed, there is hardly anything left to talk about in sports. And a newspaper based in Tyler, Texas of the United States saw the funny side of it.
The newspaper left the page, dedicated to sports news, blank utilising its sense of humor to the best. The page carried a witty line that says “What is going on in sports?” followed by literally nothing.
The newspaper won praises for its sense of humour. Have a look:

At less you can use that page when running out of toilet paper ?— SamGriggs (@SamGrig69320547) April 13, 2020
Me: Well done! Creative!— Tyler Batiste (@TyBatiste) April 13, 2020
Also me: That’s wasting newsprint!
Explaining the decision to go blank, the paper’s editor John Anderson said that the blank sports front page was aimed at putting “this coronavirus spread in perspective”. “When the games resume, so does our courage,” he added.
