Football.
I've just managed to acquire the ability to watch live Premiership matches and my team Sheffield Utd are doing really well to boot.

Snooker.
The only sport I can talk about on here with a modicum of authority.

Golf.
My eldest daughter and I love the big events, we pick half a dozen players and have a little bet. Mad scenes if were in with a shout on the last few holes.

I miss playing golf the most by far although I've been on an unbelievable heater betting on it this year.

The good thing is I've not had a chance to lose any back.

Football and the Snooker World Championship.

Not sporting, but I kinda enjoy the WSOP (updates and build up to the Main) (even though I think I'm the only person on here that dislikes Vegas)

Greyhound racing.  There is absolutely no reason why this couldn't keep going behind closed doors.   There would be less than 50 people at the track.  Social distancing isn't remotely a problem.  No human would have to go without 2 metres of each other throughout the entire meeting.   No jockeys racing like on the horses.

This is a biggy for me, have resorted to playing Greyhound Manager 2 for my fix.

Obviously missing the football, and the UFC is another one I'm gutted isn't running.

Missing playing/managing my futsal team too - Thursdays just aren't the same.

I'll be devastated if the World Matchplay doesn't happen in my hometown of Blackpool in July. It falls in the school holidays and I generally go 5-6 times over the week.

So many happy (although a bit hazy) memories.

Missing my weekly parkrun fix, as much for the community as for the actual runs.

Abandonment of the football season would appear to be the best hope of Barnsley playing Championship football next year, and this season has been painful to endure, so I'm not missing football in the slightest at the moment.

From a spectator perspective, I love the Olympics, so that's the one that I'll miss watching on TV this year.

Horse racing to happen before 1 May hass been backed from 8/1 into 4/1 on the betfair market which is reasonably liquid now.   Interesting watch for the next few weeks.

Not a massive golf fan and don't watch that much but The Masters is a highlight of my personal sporting calendar. Probably miss that the most

I can say with complete honesty that I've not really missed watching The Arsenal.
