John Forslund On Being In Self-Quarantine

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

At 8 p.m. Sunday, John Forslund was to leave the basement of his Apex home, rejoining his family, symptom-free for the coronavirus, his self-quarantine at an end.

“It’s been an ordeal,” Forslund said Saturday, thankful that a 10-day period filled with uncertainty and mind games would be coming to a close.

Forslund, the Carolina Hurricanes’ longtime broadcaster, also quickly qualified that comment. Others, he said, face grave health challenges from COVID-19 during a global pandemic that has made life as we know it far from the life we once knew. And there are other life-threatening diseases.

“This is something totally different, where you have to sacrifice for the good of yourself and everyone around you, so that’s basically what I did,” Forslund said. “I do have to be honest. It has been harder than I thought it would be.”

Afternoon Line- Alex Faust

Living in the bubble of professional hockey, I had assumed we could persevere through this. This is the toughest sport on earth, right? Sports serve as a diversion, a source of unification, a positive tonic even in the darkest times of trouble. The show had to go on, right?

And selfishly, as a healthy 31-year-old working amongst healthy, high-performance athletes, my thought process was: why should I worry?
