Re: Should we talk about the weather? (Hi-hi-hi!)

One of the things that will make me feel normal during this decidedly not normal time is complaining about the weather.

80 degrees and in shorts and a tshirt on Tuesday. 2 days later I’m in my thickest winter jacket with gloves and a hat. Just another wonderful Chicago spring.

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

I'm good with the hire, but still lol bolls for going about this process 100% wrong. What was 100% wrong? I do think the token interviews they gave yesterday reached WTF levels like they almost went out of their way to pick the worst people imaginable. Beyond that, I don't really see anything wrong...

Re: Politics & Current Events

If you guys are mad now, wait until you find out that Trump comes out of the entire pandemic with a political tie at worst because the worst-case scenarios that needed to be broadcast to force him to react also give him an extremely easy bar to pass under and declare victory. It's going to be very ...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

May is almost certainly too aggressive, if for no other reason than you need to have a reduced ramp up spring training, but I don't think it's that unreasonable an idea. You eliminate the risk of travel, and while yes there are non-players that would need to work to support this, we're almost as cl...

Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

I agree with releasing a bracket. What I’m wondering is, the schools get money based on making the tournament. That money comes from the tv deal. That money supports all the non revenue sports. Did the NCAA just pocket all of that money by not releasing a tournament? Do they still get money from th...

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

While the numbers are quite inaccurate, the US still had 32k new confirmed cases today. Only 7 other countries have 32k confirmed cases during the entire pandemic. Same thing with deaths. Over 1,300 deaths today. Only 7 countries have more deaths the entire time. Almost 1 death every minute in the U...

Good points from everyone. I guess the first test of whether the new person is a GarPax stooge is how long Boylen is allowed to remain head coach.

Since I just watched Game 7 again, friendly reminder that KB scored on a sac fly to short LF and scored from first on a single in that game. He put on an absolute base running clinic in Game 7 I just saw a video on YouTube that showed a bunch of star's 1st hits, and I completely forgot that KBs 1st...

If this was happening closer to the election, the Dems would be screwed. No one gives a horsefeathers about the presidential election right now.

Imagine a world where the President of the United State's biggest takeaway from a global pandemic is how high the ratings for his press conferences are.
