Re: Covid rants

Those of you that are parents, what are your thoughts on online schooling so far and the prospects of starting next fall online? In particular, if you have a special needs child or children, how well are they doing with all of this?

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

Damn. My daughter was supposed to be leaving this morning for a 2 week trip to Germany, but the school canned the trip. I can’t imagine the thought of her getting there and getting stranded. One of my daughter's college friends is studying abroad in Florence. She's still there but everything to see...

Re: TV thread

Speaking of old TV shows, Hulu randomly suggested that I watch A Bit of Fry & Laurie which originally aired during the early -mid 1980s. The "Laurie" half of this duo is Hugh Laurie who played House. One of my favorite long running characters/ sketches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q...

Re: Golf thread

Anyone been to Dicks for swing analysis? I was looking for club fitting places near Williamsburg, VA but the intra webs suggested Dicks was closer to my actual location. I'm not looking to invest in a custom made set, I just want to know if I'd be better off with a different flex on my irons.

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

Gustafson to Flames for conditional draft pick(s). Not really sure which yet. Too bad we didn't trade him last summer when he would have brought in a better return. Now they need to put Boqvist on the #1 PP unit and tell him to shoot the puck every time he sees an opening which should be a lot in th...

Re: (sigh) Return of the XFL

Not sure getting 18 year olds will end up making sense, but maybe they could get involved with the "transfer" game. Rather than sit out a year, potentially put up tape immediately that spring and then declare the next year. I think there are a decent number of high school players who woul...

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

If the Hawks do become sellers, teams are likely to ask about Maata. Whatever they got for him will have to be added to evaluating that trade. That being said, having Joker + Kahun >>>>> Nylander + Maata. Why would teams ask about Maatta? It's like left handed relievers in baseball, teams are alway...

Re: (sigh) Return of the XFL

I watched about 10 minutes. 3 point conversion. If a punt goes in the end zone the ball comes out to the 35 so they basically have to go for it on 4th down inside the 45. Kickoffs were interesting too. Pretty extreme.

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

As long as you're still reliant on Kane, Toews, and Keith as top line players, I think you need to take every chance at a playoff bid you can get. I can see a thought process for settling on one of them and seeing what you can get for the other, even if it's little more than a coin flip, because yo...

Kirby Dach, the #3 pick in the draft has basically caught the 2 guys that were taken ahead of him in terms of points. He's looked really good recently. A lot of teams, especially Toronto, have been asking about Lehner or Crawford. It will be interested to see what Bowman does there. Trading Crawford...
