@Furryanimal I hope that posting on this forum, and other forums, takes away some of the feelings of isolation for you. It isn't easy keeping active, especially if one lives alone.

All the best to you - Hugs 🤗
Yep-the Internet is a lifeline.There are a couple of folk I chat to most days.Plus my numerous word game apps.But I’d rather be out supporting my rugby club,attending concerts-fingers crossed for next September and November-and come Spring watching my cricket club.
February 29th-the last time I was at the rugby- feels a lifetime ago.

Hugs from me too, Furryanimal. The internet is kind of a lifeline for me too; post here whenever you feel the need.

Also, can you recommend a good web site to watch rugby on, maybe YouTube?
There is some live rugby on you tube...depends what you want watch...England rugby has the Womens Premier 15s on most Saturdays,World Rugby has the sevens circuit (not at the moment-Covid),there are Super Rugby and international highlights.The various rugby countries have YouTube channels.
But most is stuck behind various countries paywalls but using a VPN can get you the six nations (France2/3).Ustvgo.tv has some rugby...on NBCsports.
But depending on where you are(and you’ll have check the situation with the USA) a subscription to rugbypass.com
could be good.
And I’ve seen US major league rugby on you tube.
This was on last Saturday

Sky sports next(NZ) and sky sports UK sometimes have live rugby broadcast free on you tube
Just root around you can unearth some gems!
these are today dec 19th
and when things become more normal there is live streaming of University and schools rugby in the UK.BUCS super rugby (University) is of a high standard.

Wow, thanks, Furryanimal! It's fun to watch, isn't it? Seems like they do as much as U.S. "footballers" but only without the helmets and padding, wow they're tough! o_O:)

American Football came about because someone-i can’t remember who-decided you could improve rugby by straightening out the scrum and allowing one forward pass in each movement.
If they had not had that bright idea America might have been up there with New Zealand in rugby terms.Rugby had been picked up quickly by the American colleges when it first started.
And i could be watching the Packers play rugby on my NFL game pass!

In my youth I was very athletic. Now in my old age, am arthritic and have a heart condition. Usually I only attend youth & high school sports. Since I cannot attend sports now due to the plague, I am forced to watch sports exclusively online or on TV. Luckily, I was given a gift subscription to the scholastic sports channel that we have here in Minnesota and get to see games for free. I also watch youth or pro sports on youtube, nbastreams, onhockey, yoursports, and other websites. There are also live channels which stream what are called IRL on youtube or on twitch.tv.

IRL may be a live stream where a person walks or bikes through, say, Central Park in NYC while he/she communicates with viewers. Am amazed how many friends and how much fun we can have doing that.

Indeed, the Internet and TV can be our best friends in difficult times like these.
