Rochester, NY – There is a good chance that pro sports might be played in stadiums without fans this year which would be a huge transition for most athletes used to the crowd noise.
This will however not be that big of a switch for the Rochester Americans who are used to playing to lots of empty seats. That’s why the NFL, NHL, and NBA have reached out to the Amerks to counsel their professional athletes on how to make the transition to empty crowds.
“One of the first lessons I will tell them is to tune down celebrations,” said one anonymous Amerks player. “There’s nothing more heartbreaking than doing a sick sliding guitar solo with your hockey stick only to look up and see no one giving a single f***.”
