Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

As starved as I am for baseball or any sports, I'm with Goony. That's a stupid idea. I'm not sure how many players would sign up for 4.5-plus months away from their family, to say nothing of the more science-based reasons why that wouldn't work. To add on to the Doolittle love, here's his wife summ...

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

the IHME model update came out and it now projects florida to peak in deaths much sooner than before It's lowered projections all over the nation. This coming week *should* be the worst of it, as the cases who were infected 3-4 weeks ago hit the death totals. Another week to be sure, and then we ca...

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

While we're on the subject of tin foil hats, I have a weird feeling that this 100k-200k death range is a little overstated based on the effectiveness of social distancing, or at least is a total we aren't going to hit for a couple years, and so come election time when "only" 60k-80k have d...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I can't decide how...unique to Trump this is, but it's very strange how there hasn't been an ounce of sympathy to the victims of this coming from the White House, and it's really not even a story.

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

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. Love that you brought this up. That sac fly score was amazing. He probably would have been out with a lower throw but that’s the point, he caught them so off ...

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

Just saw that Denver bars and restaurants are shut down for 8 weeks. I don't know how any non-chain survives something like that, short of a pretty large government assistance package, which seems highly unlikely to be directed that way.

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

Can someone tell me where my logic is wrong here. Genuine question, because I feel like I'm missing something. Brazil, a country of 200m people, has 77 reported cases. The president of the country is one of them. That's either the flukiest thing of all time, or we're looking at a situation, right no...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

I wonder how close we are to the whole season getting canceled. This thing isn't just going to go away, all those charts about flattening the curve show that slowing it down extends it. Who steps up first and decides to go back to business as usual? And even then, do they restart spring training? P...

Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

Hopefully, an official bracket is still released, it'd be cool to see the Illini finally ended their 7 year hiatus. I'm hoping for at least a bracket which may not be as far fetched as you'd think because there's a sliver that the tournament could theoretically be played in a month. Maybe it's a pi...

Duke just suspended all athletics, said they won't participate in the tournament if it happens, which is looking very unlikely at this point.

Today my jaw dropped a little bit when I opened up Robinhood. So obviously I doubled down and threw more money into this pit. I'll invest at the bottom eventually!

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

Big Ten, ACC, AAC tournaments canceled. At this point I assume March Madness will be called off at some point today.

Weird timing on this, first games are supposed to start in 10 minutes.

Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

I guess Hoiberg just had the normal flu, and got cleared to coach the next game. But I guess "will the tournament get canceled" jumped from +220 to -120 pretty quickly this morning. Going to be super weird if they even play. Probably the right decision to call it off, but it makes my Vegas...
