  1. People north of here are much more authoritarian, tis true...
  2. He didnt mention the blog he writes under an alias.
  3. Case by case if things chg. But yes, our choice. Thats how a democracy is supposed to work.
  4. So we officially have 2 weeks to decide if the kid will be doing 1st semester of 8th grade from the school or our kitchen table.
  5. The Eagles will be featured on ESPN this weekend, but it's not the Eagles you'd expect. Here's how much the lack of live sports has affected the Worldwide Leader: ESPN will air an Eagles concert—the Eagles with Don Henley, not the Eagles with Carson Wentz—Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET. And it's not even a live concert! The show, Live from The Forum MMXVIII, was recorded in September 2018 and will feature 26 songs. The concert will be introduced by Eagles superfan Chris Berman.
  6. Might be a lot of that happening. https://theathletic.com/1905507/2020/07/02/how-can-a-power-5-team-try-to-get-out-of-a-g5-fcs-matchup-during-a-pandemic/ “The FCS and the Group of 5 are going to have to demonstrate that they’re doing testing, but I don’t think anybody’s going to be going to their campuses to verify it,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. “I think you’re going to end up saying, ‘OK, here is the contract, and this is the basis of which we will allow you to come to our campus.’ And in the case of (Power) 5 intersectional contests, we don’t really have any worries about that. Everybody’s testing.” “We’re finding it’s about 75 bucks a test,” Idaho State athletic director Pauline Thiros said. “If we’re going to test 200 student-athletes each week, if you’re looking at testing relative to competitions and symptoms — if you were literally going to do that weekly — you’re looking at between $17,000 and $20,000 a week. That’s an extreme for us. I don’t know if that’s the level that we’ll be at. But we’ve literally tried to think about (including) a couple hundred thousand dollars extra in our fall budget as a contingency for those things.”
  7. Er...what? They just arrested her, like, today.
  8. Boise State just dropped its baseball program after 14...games.
  9. I get it....we ALL want this to end as quickly and quietly as possible. But wishing it away isnt going to make that happen, nor is focusing on only part of the picture. There are parts of the picture(map) where things are genuinely better than they were. But we need the whole picture to be brighter.
  10. 734 deaths in Texas from March 31st to April 30th. 31 days. 941 deaths in Texas from May 1st to May 31st. 31 days. 809 deaths in Texas from June 1st thru July 1st, with July 1st being the 2nd worst yet. 31 days. Those numbers are from the state dashboard. Deaths may be down, but it isnt anything to crow about. Not yet.
  11. https://abcnews.go.com/US/alabama-students-throwing-covid-parties-infected-officials/story?id=71552514
  12. Costing them hundreds of dollars in revenue....
  13. Sorry, but no. Its her JOB. Press secretaries since the position was created 90 years ago have managed to answer questions, inane and otherwise, from that podium, without treating it like a 4th grade sandbox fight. What makes this time so special? The answer should be apparent.
  14. Lots more people on the beach than in 95% of those protests. And a fair number of those protestors were....wait for it...wearing masks. Any port in a storm, ounce of prevention...whatever cliche suits you. Think many people are masking up at the beach? Of course not. Wouldnt expect them to. FWIW the Florida beaches started closing around mid-March. Started opening Mid May. Interesting timing. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to Hawaiian Falls.....where all the employees have been wearing. Interesting to see what the policy is for the huddled masses now....
  15. Brownsville and SPI. Only about 800 miles off...
  16. Cameron County closed the beaches and mandated masks. so...yeah...
  17. Ivy does their own thing. 10 game schedules, no 1AA playoff. Farthest any of them ever travel is DC.
  18. He was 18-40. Forgive him, hell....I want him to go BACK.
