It was Memorial Day here in the United States , a day where we honor all those veterans that made it possible for us here to enjoy the right to shop, live and yes , do those 30 Plus Teams Tours we sports fans love doing.

Thanks to the virus from hell , it’s not possible for us to do what we used to do.

But here in New York City as well as some other states in the country, places are opening up.

While large groups of people can’t get together and act the fool, it is okay if up to 10 people do this.

Just remember your masks and gloves people.

You can’t swim on the beaches but at least you can walk on the sand here.

Usually, for Memorial Day, the Sports Diva is doing some kind of 30 Plus Teams Tour of somewhere.

Virus from hell or no virus from hell , 2020 is no different .

Except, I’m doing a stay cation 30 Plus Teams Tour.

Hello to that orange and blue bus route N4 that starts in the borough of Queens and ends in Nassau County Long Island.

Instead of going to Philadelphia, Boston or Washington, DC, my trip is taking me to the cities or incorporated towns of Baldwin , Valley Stream, Lynbrook and Rockville Centre , Long Island.

While buses in New York City are run by the MTA or Metropolitan Transit Authority, buses in this section of Long Island are run by Nassau County transit.

Like everything else in New York City , don’t even try to come on without your mask and please forget about paying, get on the back of the bus please and stay away from the driver.

If you need to ask for directions on how to get where you’re going, too bad.

No interaction with the driver.

Didn’t you get that memo about staying 6 feet away?

So with camera phone in hand, the Sports Diva said stand back coronavirus, mama is going away, if only for a few hours.

Guess what?

It felt so good, I just might do it again.


At the end of my last blog post in April, Coping With The Virus From Hell Part Two, I ended that post by saying that there would be no Part Three because I wouldn’t be able to take it.

Here we are in the United States and the Corona virus is still here like those relatives who just won’t leave your house or that ex boyfriend/girlfriend who didn’t get that memo that the relationship is over.

We still have way too many deaths than we should have but I’m not here to put the blame on anyone.

As I said in my last post , I don’t really care whose government did or didn’t do what or what city it began in.

Let’s move on from that and try to do something about this.

I have been coping much better with this now than when it first began here in the United States.

Some states and countries in the world are getting back to the new normal, which is masks and not everyone and their mama in the same place.

Some folks, unfortunately , haven’t gotten this memo and still think this is some kind of joke or some kind of conspiracy in which the government is taking away our freedoms.

To those folks, I say, bless your hearts, but y’all need to stop the madness and get a life.

Folks are dying every day.

This ain’t no joke.

As I said, I’m coping a lot better than in part 2.

I’ve been actually shopping, not for just food, but online in stores like Rainbow Shops , ZARA, and Forever 21 where I brought clothes for my 30 Plus Teams Tours before the virus from Hell came around.

I’ve even looked at the catalog for all things Vegas Golden Knights, because after all quarantine or no quarantine , I STILL am that Team Sports Apparel Fashionista.

The Sports Diva needs new swag for the next 30 Plus Teams Tour in God Willing, the end of July or the end of August .

Where am I going ?

Sorry, can’t tell you just yet.

What I can tell you though is this .

Even though my state of New York hasn’t officially opened for business yet, a lot of states around us have and they’re taking precautions to keep people safe.

Now, I’m not going to jump on a plane a day or two after quarantine is lifted no matter how low the fares are, and trust me, from JFK and Newark Liberty, they’re lower than I have seen them.

I’m going to wait one or two months before any major 30 Plus Teams Tours of anywhere happen.

But it’s nice to finally be able to say that I can finally cope with the virus from hell and that feels good.
