While the NBA, NFL and NHL are making moves to either restart or be ready to start, the MLB has hit a major snag over pay, causing a rift between players and owners. Looks like the chances of doing a live 9-9-9 challenge in 2021 are ever diminishing. Anyway, here are three things to help you out of the quarantine funk: 1. Anheuser Busch couldn't have asked for a better commercial. A 103-year-old Massachusetts woman beat Covid-19, and celebrated by slamming a crispy boy. Jennie Stejna battled the virus for weeks, and her family believed it might be time to say goodbye. But, the grandmother recovered and had a request: a cold beer. "The staff gave Stejna an ice cold Bud Light to celebrate, something she loved but hadn’t had in a long time." USA Today 2. New Zealand hospitals are currently Covid free. New Zealand has reported that, after the last patient was released, the country's hospitals aren't treating anyone for coronavirus and no new cases have been reported in the last five days. And in fact, only 21 people in the whole country remain positive for the virus. RNZ 3. A vaccine before the new year? Dr. Fauci thinks so. With 10 vaccines currently in human trials across the globe, hope remains on the rise that we could have a vaccine for Covid-19 ready as early as November. "I still think that we have a good chance, if all the things fall in the right place, that we might have a vaccine that would be deployable by the end of the year, by December and November." CNN
