    While I am glad for the college seniors who are able make up their lost season, I also feel bad for the high school seniors. Now, not only are they losing their final year in HS, but those lucky enough to get a college spot are now going to face a much larger roster (ie more competition for playing time). It's almost a double whammy for them.

    Completely agree on all points. Just pointing out that this thing has already shown up in warm weather climates, so the summer heat here may not necessarily be the savior that some of us wish it would be.

    Witnessed something firsthand similar to this a week or so ago at a little place in Verona. People, please understand that there are a lot of places that may have offered takeout before, but their primary form of customers was those that came in and sat down and, obviously not everyone came in at the same time. So the kitchen never got backed up the way it can with phone orders. I know they appreciate the business in times like these, but...

    I know a lot of other people that are saying that as well. (I was hoping for that, initially, too.) But, if the heat was truly our ally, shouldn't we be seeing fewer cases in the southern states right now? I mean there's twice as many people confirmed in Arizona as there is in Kentucky right now.

    I'm not choosing one side over another...but wasn't the first test that the CDC sent out faulty? Add that to the fact that many of the results were taking such a long time to come back, I could see where you could move the potential timeline of arrival back a little bit. As to the deaths, I'm assuming that there's somewhat of a "delay" between when you first catch it, and when you may succumb to it (depending on your initial health status).

    I think #2 really is the one that's the most important then. Because a susceptible population of 250 million really isn't that different than 300 million, is it, when it comes to the medical community?

    I didn't want to threadjack and post this in any of the other threads dealing with this thing. But, I have a question that I can't really seem to see anybody (at the professional level) addressing. But, ultimately, flattening the curve gets us to where? (And please don't confuse this with WHY we are trying to flatten the curve. I totally understand that.) This is more of a WHERE we are going. To me, there are several possibilities... *...

    Whiffle ball for me. But we substituted that skinny yellow bat for a big old fat one that we nicknamed Bam Bam. Hit the ball so hard with that, that we had to wrap the sweet spot with duct tape to keep the seam from splitting apart. You could hit some prodigious shots with that. But playing defense was almost as fun, trying to rob home runs before they cleared the pine tree "wall". Ahhh, good times.

    The Globetrotters legend was 77. Harlem Globetrotters legend Curly Neal dies at age 77 Growing up in the 70's, the Globetrotters to me were two guys...Meadowlark Lemon and Curly Neal. RIP Curly.

    So, in Kentucky we're being very stingy on who we give the tests to, saying you have to show symptoms for a week to get the test. But, after we do the tests...only 1 out of 15 come back positive? I almost think you'd have better odds of finding infected people if you just pulled 15 random people.

    If I remember correctly, they said we'd be getting about a week's worth of results all in one or two days. So you know the number is going to explode.

    Numbers are going to spike pretty quickly here in the next day or two when the labs that can do 10,000 tests a day come online. (I believe the ones running right now can only do a dozen or so.) There'll probably be another run on TP and such, as people will suddenly think the thing is spreading so much faster...when in fact, it's already spread and the tests are just being done quicker.

    On a less serious note...I can't think of Irish songs without this one. And, as I understand it, there are indeed two additional verses (hence, the Seven drunken nights)...but are not for younger audiences.

    Opening Day pushed back until at least mid-May. MLB delays opening day to mid-May at earliest due to virus If they end up with something like a 120 game schedule...there could be a lot more teams still in contention at the end.

    Was there an option to "abstain" from voting? If not, I could possibly see a veteran who knows he's going to retire in the next year or two, say..."you know what, I'm not going to vote either way, since I'm not going to be here for the majority of this agreement. For you young bucks out there that want to play an extra game, I'm not going to stand in your way. And likewise, I'm not going to MAKE you play an extra game if you don't want to,...

    Banking and pharmacies all have a drive-thru window, where you can limit you contact. If your internet goes down at your house, you've got a tech that's actually in your house. How sure are you that they're not infected? How sure are they that YOU'RE not infected?

    I understand what you're saying, but I'm having difficulty with the "what if I'm infected, but not showing symptoms yet" and end up accidentally infecting the same people you're trying to help. I keep coming back to the statement from the medical field...do no harm. Tough situation for sure.

    One thing that I feel will happen, with almost 100% certainty is this...should we be able to limit the number of deaths to "only" 50,000 (or less)...people will go absolutely berzerk about all these cancellations. They'll say all of this was pointless, as we do absolutely none of it for the regular flu and lose that same amount to death. Which means, the NEXT time something happens and it requires full cooperation from the public to stop the...
