New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has just voiced his support for New York sports teams to reopened.
Cuomo revealed the news Monday saying, “I want to watch the Bills.”
“Hockey, basketball, baseball, football – whoever can reopen – we’re a ready, willing and able partner,” Cuomo said Monday during his daily news conference.
“I think this is in the best interest of all the people and the best interest of the state of New York.”
All major sports have been shut down since March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Major League Baseball is in talks with players on a plan to start the season, and the NFL released its schedule earlier this month.
“Personal disclosure, I want to watch the Buffalo Bills,” Cuomo quipped.
New York is reopening the horse tracks and Watkins Glen after extending the stay-at-home order on Friday.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed the news Saturday, per AP.
New York will allow horse racing tracks and Watkins Glen International car track to reopen with the easing of the coronavirus outbreak.
But Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday was quick to add a caveat: “No crowds. No fans.”
At his daily briefing, the Democrat says he could envision a return of Major League Baseball in New York, also without fans. “If it works economically, that would be great,” he says.
