Inside the Ropes – April 2020

Inside the Ropes

For many of us, sports are an integral part of our lives and since their advent, fans have used them as a respite from their troubles, and to enjoy a sense of belonging & community that we can all share in. The NCAA Basketball Tournament should have finished yesterday with a champion crowned, and celebrated, in Atlanta; however, COVID-19 stole this and many other moments from us before they could happen. Here at ISM, we are all as eager as you are to return to the arenas, stadiums, and fairways where moments are captured, and memories are made.

In tough times, sports give us hope and they will inevitably play a large part in our return from the coronavirus, showcasing the love Americans have for great comeback stories. Once the competitions and competitors return, we too will be there, ready to go. Until then, we ask you to be safe and enjoy some interesting sports facts and lists we’ve assembled along with some special opportunities to be a part of the future of sports.
