Re: The Politics Thread

Why didn't Biden grill Trump on his supposed healthcare plan? This whole "take away everyone's coverage first, then figure the details out later" approach doesn't inspire a lot of confidence coming from someone who hasn't even been able to come up with a rough outline of a plan over 4 yea...

Re: RE: Re: The Politics Thread

I think Trump won tonight's debate, not on substance, but on appearance and perception. If I just woke up from a 4 year nap and watched tonight's debate, I could possibly make an argument that this version of Trump is a better candidate than Biden. But we all know who Trump really is and his talkin...

Re: White Sox parts ways with Renteria

I feel kinda bad for the guy. I probably shouldn't, because he isn't a great manager and he has done fairly well for himself overall, but it has to get frustrating. Every time he almost gets to the top of the ladder someone knocks him off and says "Go climb that other ladder now."

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

My 4 year old had a seasonal allergy thing for a couple of days but school never sent him home because he wasn't exhibiting anything close to a COVID symptom. We did keep him home a day to let him get healthy. I think the issue is that the CDC defines basically anything as a Covid symptom. Fever or...

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

My 3 year old son just got his 2nd Covid test over the past month because of seasonal allergies and day care. Our day care provider is sending him home every time he has even a slight runny nose and he isn't allowed back until he is tested or quarantines for 14 days (although we still pay for the da...

No video of Trump walking to the helicopter tells me he wasn't able to walk to it.

Edit: I was wrong. There was video.

Re: The Politics Thread

When Trump says "us", he is clearly referring only to his supporters. When Biden says "us", he is speaking about the country as a whole. This shouldn't be news to anyone, but it was made abundantly clear again tonight. We simply can't afford another 4 years of us versus them. Sen...

Re: The Shift

It's definitely not about the value proposition of hitting for power v. contact or about half the league throwing 95 with 90 mph wipeout sliders, nope it's a character flaw Doesn't the shift play into that value proposition though? Why hit for contact if someone is going to be positioned where you ...

The Shift

Up until this year, my opinion has always been that MLB should not legislate defensive positioning, meaning teams should be able to shift however they want. I have thought that hitters can and should adapt to counter the shift and hit the ball into the large open spaces on the field. Upon further re...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I never even thought about it until Lester's post-game comments, but last night could have been his last start at Wrigley Field in a Cubs uniform. The way he spoke, it certainly sounded like that could be the case. What are everyone's thoughts about bringing him back next year? Obviously he isn't wo...

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

what exactly did Trump think these interviews with Woodward were for? https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1303723191689510916 The thing I took away from this was that Trump came across as a normal, reasonably intelligent, person in the audio recording. So he knows and understands what is going o...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Just had a high thought: This year is going to be one of those years that sticks out for all of American memory and that people will know about in 100 years. 1776, 1861, 1941, 1969, 2001, 2020.

Also in the spirit of being late to the party, I just finished the main story in Super Mario Odyssey and boy is that a lot of fun. I absolutely loved that game. I hadn't finished a single player game in years before Odyssey, but I just couldn't put it down. It was everything I wanted in a Mario game.
