Re: TV thread

On a lighter note watched the season finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm last night, pretty damn funny, J.B. Smoove is awesome. The little things he says here and there after Larry David makes an observation or other comment are hilarious. Also recently caught up on Curb, the Jon Hamm episode of him tur...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

** obvious disclaimer who cares about something stupid like the Cubs paying the luxury tax at a time like this, but we do have to talk about something non-virus ** If they prorate the salaries does the luxury tax also get prorated down? They're so close probably almost any number of games under 162 ...

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

This will be interesting, I've been going to work - small office downtown currently it's just me and my boss. He lives in Oak Park so is currently already ignoring that shelter in place order. Will office buildings lock their doors for this?

Re: TV thread

Netflix has a documentary series on Joe Exotic out today... I saw the headline and photo and remember that it was a crazy story but I don't remember the exact details so I'm steering clear of looking at anything else until I watch. https://www.oxygen.com/sites/oxygen/files/2020-03/exotic-joe-netflix...

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

I'm fairly clueless at this stuff, but it is bizarre. That nursing home gets nothing, and the one in DuPage County infects 25 people. I'm not expecting identical results, but that seems outside the probability range right? Same (as to being fairly clueless), and I haven't looked into what these fac...

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

And if you do get sick, it's best to stay away from OtC cold/flu treatments with ibuprofen for the time being; there's reports especially from Europe that they think it can impair the body's ability to best fight the coronavirus. Stick with acetaminophen instead. I was just thinking I should go out...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The fact that people actually voted for this clown is just a very short rung below the fact that people voted for Trump in reasons this world is f'd.

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

I think I saw something quoting a 3.something mortality rate... that may have been the U.S. numbers, either way the theory was that number is skewed by the under reporting/not testing horsefeathers show going on here. This. Wouldn’t the mortality rate be skewed up by under reporting. Unless you thi...

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

Details on the arbitrator's decision have come out. the injuries to Olt and LaStella, the fact that Bryant had the worst spring training fielding percentage of any 3B, and this appears to be the clincher Irvings highlighted how in Epstein’s previous 14 seasons running a club’s front office, not once...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't follow this stuff closely, but my completely uneducated opinion is that a Joe Biden candidacy is going to end up 100% the exact same as Hilary. There is enough real or imagined scandal out there that the facebook meme's will scare enough idiots in swing states to lock it up for Trump.

Marquee Sports recently agreed to pay $132 million a year on average for the rights to Cubs games, or more than double the previous deal. The network stands to lose about $100 million a year in subscriber revenue from the blackout on Comcast, based on a $5-a-month price. Even a settlement at less-t...
