Another wave of fans returning to sports despite COVID-19
So, like any good mom, she did her homework, learning more about the policies in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several spring training facilities will open their doors to fans when major league exhibition games start on Sunday.

Mahomes piles up big numbers at Arrowhead - on Election Day
Patrick Mahomes piled up some very big numbers at Arrowhead Stadium last week. Five days before throwing for four touchdowns and nearly 400 yards in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 33-31 victory over the Carolina Panthers, Mahomes helped turn his home stadium into a giant polling place on Election Day.
