Editor's note: Like you, Bay Area athletes and NBC Sports Bay Area insiders, reporters and analysts are feeling the sports void during the coronavirus stoppage. They'll share their thoughts twice a week in "What I Miss About Sports." Next up in the series: A's slugger Matt Olson.

A's first baseman Matt Olson misses playing baseball, clearly, but he also misses watching all sports on television as he remains in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Everything about it," Olson told NBC Sports California when asked what he misses most about sports. 

"Obviously the baseball aspect is a given, but it's always nice to be able to turn on TV and watch a random NBA game, or the NBA playoffs, or a random baseball game on the East Coast when we're back on the West Coast.

"(There's) definitely a lot of Netflix taking place of it. Normally, I turn on the TV, and pretty much roll straight over to ESPN or whatever else is going to have sports on. But, I've been having to adapt."

Olson and the A's have championship aspirations in 2020, if and when the season takes place. For now, it's a lot of Netflix.
