Memphis Grizzlies Fans Quarantine Chronicles: Part 2

Anthony Sain

The NBA has been suspended but for fans of the teams, we all have to continue our lives in the best way that we can. Some of us are adjusting well and some are having higher hurdles to climb. Today I will share how the lives of two more Memphis Grizzlies fans have been affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Suzanne Pulse, a Grizzlies fan and restaurant owner in Horn Lake, Mississippi, has had her day to day routine and her business affected by the virus but remains positive about both. 

"I hate the quarantine but I am staying at home," said Pulse. "We’ve closed the dining room of our restaurant, Boomers but we still have drive-thru, walk-up and phone-in available. My husband drives for Fed-Ex, so he is steadily delivering toilet paper.  I have been watching NBA and NCAA reruns. I have tiled a backsplash, painted my house and replaced light fixtures."

"Our business has been steady but I suspect it will get worse before it gets better. We own the property and just paid it off in December so we should be able to recover. Fortunately, we haven’t had to lay off anyone yet."

My Thoughts On Today's Memphis Grizzlies Fans Quarantine Chronicles

Grizz fan Lawrence Woodson has kept everything in perspective.  He realizes that although he can't see his favorite team that he has to do what he has to do to provide for his family who he has enjoyed spending more time with.

"I've been so busy working and spending time with the family that I don't miss basketball all the time but it's still there.," said Woodson. "I sell insurance for Direct Auto and sometimes it's slow. We have been waiting to see, like everyone else, how long this is going to last and how long we're gonna continue to work. On top of that, I'm still trying to stay positive and encourage my friends, family, and co-workers at the same time. It's a lot."
