The Press Release:
National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman on Thursday released the following statement regarding the 2019-20 NHL season:

“In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019 20 season beginning with tonight’s games.

“The NHL has been attempting to follow the mandates of health experts and local authorities, while preparing for any possible developments without taking premature or unnecessary measures. However, following last night’s news that an NBA player has tested positive for coronavirus — and given that our leagues share so many facilities and locker rooms and it now seems likely that some member of the NHL community would test positive at some point — it is no longer appropriate to try to continue to play games at this time.

The Press Release:
The NBA announced that a player on the Utah Jazz has preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The test result was reported shortly prior to the tip-off of Wednesday’s game between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time, Wednesday’s game was canceled. The affected player was not in the arena.

The NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of Wednesday’s schedule of games until further notice. The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I am running out of things to say about this and just am getting more and more concerned about the events that I go to still being in place and no signs of being cancelled. Be careful out there my friends.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the desert this fall.

*** end of transmission ***

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Historically speaking, we’ve never attended any of the Coachella festivals and its mostly because we’ve a full plate of music that we really like going on over here on the East Coast. That being said, we still announced this stuff on “The Chronicles” based on the broader brush and wider audience demographic of readers. This is just the latest in a long line of already cancelled conventions and tours that I’ve discussed here and on my PiercingMetal website and I think many more are to come. Stay tuned and stay healthy. I attended a convention today and I don’t think that I shook a single hand once. Everyone I engaged with got a peace sign, a thumb’s up and yeah even a Spock “Live Long and Prosper”. See you next time.

Hey there my friends, I am back once more with a third trailer for the upcoming Dreamworks TV animated feature “Trolls World Tour”. If you’ve missed any of the posts that have run before this one, you’re going to want to click HERE to see the first two trailers and a visually exciting bunch of promotional posters. Now let’s watch the third one and scroll on down to be reminded of the premise and see the ensemble voice casting. I’ve even included the Official Theatrical poster at the close. Let’s go.

Synopsis: After the events of the first film, Poppy and Branch discover that they are six other different kinds of Trolls scattered over six different lands, each devoted to a different form of music: Pop, Funk, Classical, Techno, Country and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger, and a whole lot louder, as member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb, aided by her father King Thrash, wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends — Smidge, Legsly, Biggie, Satin and Chenille, Cooper, Guy Diamond and Tiny Diamond — set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all and turn them into rock zombies. Meanwhile, Branch tries to find a way to tell Poppy how he feels about her.
