Here are four things to look forward to in August despite the pandemic.
- In sports, Major League Baseball and the NBA got underway this week, and the NHL will join them this weekend. The season resumes tomorrow, after being on hold since mid-March.
- On TV, “Big Brother” returns to CBS next Wednesday, and it’s an All-Star season . . . Shark Week is back on Discovery a week from Sunday, on August 9th . . . and the “Video Music Awards”are set to air on MTV on August 30th.
- There are a couple things happening in OUTER SPACE that you can enjoy while still social distancing. SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Demo-2 mission will return to Earth from the International Space Station this Sunday. (You can watch it on Space.com.)
There’s also going to be a full Moon this Sunday morning . . . it’s called a Full Sturgeon Moon. And the Perseid Meteor Shower is going on now, but it’ll peak on August 11th and 12th between midnight and dawn. Just go outside and lookup.
- There are no federal holidays in August, so you’re not going to get any days off work. But there are a TON of fun, smaller holidays, including: National Girlfriends Day tomorrow . . . Friendship Day on Sunday . . . Chocolate Chip Cookie Day on the 4th . . .
National Underwear Day on the 5th . . . International Beer Day on the 7th . . . National Relaxation Day on the 15th . . . our personal favorite, National Radio Day on August 20th . . . and National Dog Day on the 26th.
