Just wishing all you and your loved ones safety and health (physical and mental) right now. A lot to process and adjust to.

 

Everyone doing okay? Anyone not, and in need of anything that we can pitch in on?


RED. BULL. OUT.

2005 was a lockout. Different thing.

They haven't even started the playoffs yet this year. I think it would be a hard sell for the league to scrap this season and tell fans that everything they invested themselves into since October was just a bait and switch.

A bait and switch?! LMAO! Its about protecting your players from injury and illness, and protecting your fans and employees from a resurgence of the virus. If a fan feels a professional sports league pulled a bait and switch on them, well, that is just their problem.

I had a vacation scheduled in April. My flight was cancelled.  I said to the airline, "I have invested a lot of myself in this vacation, this is a bait and switch." They told me I was a moron and that I should look up the definition of bait and switch.

The Ohio Health Director estimates there are 100,000 people infected in the state but have only run enough tests to identify a handful of cases.

Two weeks later, the confirmed total is ... 1,137.
About 99,000 short of her estimate.

doctor I know who runs a hospital in Colorado ... says they're going to be overrun in 10 days


12 days later, the Colorado total is ... 1,734.
13% of the 12,676 tested.

Aren't there still not enough tests nationwide? I don't think test availability changed between then and now.

Looks like more tests are available nationwide.
https://www.google.c...almost-anywhere
I would expect that anyone arriving at an ER in Ohio or Colorado displaying symptoms would be tested.
With >85% testing negative, I would also expect that anyone not displaying enough symptoms to be tested has at most a mild case.
Of course, there would always be concern for contagion, even in untested mild cases, but social separation should greatly reduce the risk of spread.
There are still predictions of further mass outbreaks.
We can always be cautiously optimistic that It will not happen.

MLS will not allow NYCFC to play there either, unless they play to an empty stadium. Like us. [rimshot] #tarpofthemorningtoyou

Does any STH really want an RB scarf plus a case of Red Bull delivered to their house in a mini-Cooper?
