Board Fans

"Cardboard cutouts of fans are seen in the spectator seating in front of a security guard wearing a surgical face mask during the second half at FedExField on October 4, 2020 in Landover, Maryland. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Washington Football Team did not host fans during the game."

About five years ago, the story in Baltimore was centered around the protests over the death of Freddie Gray.

During this period, Major League Baseball announced it would play a game in front of no fans. It was historic - like the news events transpired - and something I never thought I'd witness again.

But much like life, nothing can be predicted. We can be sure in some events, but others it's nearly impossible. 

With sports leagues adapting and making an effort to keep everyone safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, we've revisited history.

Many stadiums and venues in the United States have filled their seats with cardboard cutouts of supporters as no fans continue to be permitted.

It's not only compelling images, it's the sign of the times, and hope we can all look back in years to come and know we all survived a volatile time.
