By all means, send KO back to sports, just not pro football. How about sending him to cover grade school 4-square tournaments (if the kids are still allowed to play it, that is!) and tetherball?
KO requires a chauffeur due to vision (medical) problems, unrelated to his inability to see the truth. Therefore, covering road rallies, NASCAR and Grand Prix would be ideal, especially riding shotgun.
They took out the tetherball poles in our school district - kids can get hurt! Heck, while on the PTA board for our school, we collected $35K in donations to build a play ground on our new school - the district said our designs were not “safe enough” and MUST include artificial grass with “padding”, etc...
We bought a awning to cover the kindergarten outdoor patios instead! It really IS that bad!!
