In the most recent sports poll, the staff asked which sports scenario caused the most frustration, and fans not allowed to physically attend high school sporting events received the highest percent of votes at 50 percent. "Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots and immediately winning a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay" was second with 28.1 percent, "Mookie Betts leaving Boston Red Sox, immediately wins World Series with Dodgers" was third at 12.5 percent, while "watching the Boston Celtics. Just, you know, in general" garnered 9.4 percent.
