Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

I'm cool with a guy who built a #2 seed in the West without any superduperstars (yes, I know Jokic is awesome) running the Bulls. I'm interested to see how this plays out. Nuggets kinda go for "team" players, who all move the ball and pass well. A lot of balance. I don't think the Bulls h...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I posted something about this in the general chit chat thread, but I guess it's applicable here too. My 72 year old father-in-law took a nasty fall yesterday out of a second story window. And despite being 5-6 minutes away from both the hospital and the ambulance depot, it took them 40 minutes to g...

Re: TV thread

USA is doing a Psych marathon every Wednesday for a few weeks, starting tonight. Looks like they're running 2 seasons at a time running Wed-Fri. I forgot how much I enjoyed this show. At least the first few seasons.

The virus might move faster than we think. R5.7 according to a new study. Was in NYC in February. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-08/virus-may-spread-twice-as-fast-as-earlier-thought-study-says?cmpid=socialflow-facebook-business&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflow-or...

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

This episode was fantastic. I was very pleasantly surprised that we left them in the desert at the end. Also love how he's drinking the piss from Davis & Main. What if Jimmy knows about the Hoover Max Pro Pressure Pack whatever because he had to make Kim disappear for her own safety? Also I...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

To add on to the Doolittle love, here's his wife summing it up pretty well. If I squint and try to adopt a player's mindset on losing that kind of money...there's a sliver I can understand. This proposal goes far beyond that group of people though. https://twitter.com/EireannDolan/status/1247504431...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

Honestly, it's a pretty reasonable idea. I'm hoping that by June, medium-sized gatherings (<50) will be considered common enough that we won't even need the players to fully sequester or sit apart in the dugout or whatever. But damn are they gonna have the mother of all PR disasters/lawsuits if a m...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

is a 2020 mlb season still realistic at all? the country is going to be deciding what to open up until there's a vaccine. aren't forms of entertainment that pack 40,000 people in a box going to be a bad idea for far longer than the next 4 months? I don't think people want to admit it but I don't se...

So um those ventilators Elon claimed to have and donate, they were just CPAP machines that don’t really help.

I mean, why should that be a surprise in any way whatsoever. Not a surprise, but it’s maddening that this is going to stretch out long past the summer.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Man, I'm wrong a lot, but what was true then is true now: masks on the average person, especially a homemade one, serves the most purpose in helping prevent the wearer from spreading germs, as opposed to preventing the wearer from getting sick. If you wear a mask, you should be doing it for other p...

Of course it’s the Knicks so no chance he dies.

So they’ve now sent faulty equipment to the Netherlands, Spain and Czech Republic and also all the equipment (masks and ventilators) Elon sourced for the US came from them.
