For Episode VI, we have two really awesome entries.

The first submission comes from Pueblo County were Hornet's goalie Sean Valdez had enough with the ice rinks being closed due to COVID-19. Instead, Valdez and his friends set up his at home goalie net to play around with. Way to stick to sports Sean!

Our final submission comes from Texas - you know the saying 'Happy Wife, Happy Life'... well, Noah Vaughan found that out the hard way. Noah, and his wife Riley, are professional baseball and softball players and Noah needed some extra batting practice due to COVID-19. With Riley pitching, Noah hits a bomb off of her with a bat flip.

But here is the best part - a few days later, the two switched sports and it is Riley rocketing one to left field with a bat flip of her own. So, if there is any lesson learned in this, do not bat flip on your wife - it will not end well.
