SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Still missing live sports? We are right there with you. On March 24, the Utah Jazz will miss their eighth consecutive game on the schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic that has placed a pause on live sports across the globe.
The halt on these games that we love so much affects more than just the players and fans on game day. How many memories are families missing out on by not attending their first basketball game? How many amazing moments like buzzer-beating shots in the NCAA Tournament did we not experience this season? What sports movies won’t be produced in the years to come because those moments didn’t occur?
While we may not know how long this pandemic will last, we know that we are in it together.
One of the ways we’ve been coping with the time away from live sports is by reflecting on the great moments of the past.
Some people are watching classic games or sports movies while others are reading old game articles.
One of the ways we’ve been coping is by listening to our favorite sports-related tunes. We’ve created a playlist for you to listen to as well. We’ve even included a couple of Utah related hits. Yes, it includes some of the Space Jam soundtrack because it’s awesome.
Let us know what’s your favorite sports-related song by tweeting us @kslsports.

How Do I Prevent It?
The CDC has some simple recommendations, most of which are the same for preventing other respiratory illnesses or the flu:
- Avoid close contact with people who may be sick
- Avoid touching your face
- Stay home when you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
The CDC does not recommend wearing a face mask respirator to protect yourself from coronavirus unless a healthcare professional recommends it.
