Can all the sports adopt this camera angle for the rest of eternity? Please and thanks

Lost in the absolute mess of MLB’s handling of COVID-19 is the fact that both the NHL and NBA seem to be doing just fine with their bubble setups. That’s good, no, it’s GREAT. Worst case scenario right now would be we lose baseball but still have basketball and hockey playoffs. No one except Yankees, Dodgers, Braves, Cubs and Twins fans would be upset with that.

What’s particularly great about the NBA and NHL is the fact that because there are so many games to play in a short period of time, we have weekday sports in our lives. Normally, that’s reserved for only baseball, college football bowl games and the NBA and NHL on certain holidays. But for the next few weeks, it’s every damn day in all three sports (for now). Glorious is a fitting word to describe it.

Also glorious? This camera angle that MSG has been using for Monday’s New York Rangers-Carolina Hurricanes matinee. After taking a 1-0 series lead, the Canes grabbed an early lead in Game 2, but a pair of penalties put them on a two-man disadvantage. The Rangers quickly capitalized on the 5-on-3 power play with a beautiful tic-tac-toe goal scored by Artemi Panarin. The only thing better than the goal was the view of it:

Oh hell yes, that’s the good stuff. Right to the veins, doctor.

Can we have more of this camera angle in every sport? Who remembers that incredible Cordarelle Patterson kick return from this past NFL season?

One of the most exhilarating plays of the year. All thanks to the sky cam. In the Rangers-Canes game, it perfectly showed off Tony Deangelo’s pass that eventually led to a goal. Such a sick way to watch the game. Some purists may disagree, but we need more sky cam in our lives.

P.S. Rangers are now getting smacked around 3-1. I’m sad.
