  6. If you do, please let me know. I will be at every Countryside game, probably for the next 4 years. Next Thursday, Clearwater is at Countryside. Natural rivals. It should be fun, though my feeling is that Clearwater will run over the good guys.
  7. Nice rebound. A lot of good things can happen after that first win.

  10. By taking up hospital resources that are needed by people suffering from other medical conditions. Conditions that result in serious residual effects and/or death. Most of the current COVID patients requiring the most resources are unvaccinated or not completely vaccinated (hasn't had the second shot). Currently, anything that is not COVID related and not immediately life threatening is considered an elective procedure and all elective procedures have been suspended. Example. A person needs a heart catheter to determine blockage around the heart or to determine why pulmonary arteries are
  11. Actually it is 5 months for those with preexisting conditions, 6 months for all others. Mrs. S is eligible for the booster, now and will get it this week.
  12. Down 1-0 most of the match, #15 South Florida, playing 10 on 11, scored goals in the 81st and 84th minutes get the win. USF's All-American goal tender, Sydney Martinez, spent a lot of time out of the game after a collision with a Kentucky player in the first half. USF's Cheyanne Dennis was given a Red Card in the 57th minute. There was a foul, but I didn't see anything that warranted a Red Card. It was her first foul, so that wasn't why. The ESPN crew agreed with me. South Florida dominated possession time and shots on goal. Kentucky had 0 corner kicks. That goalie, Niels

  14. From the ESPN... The NHL is investigating allegations made by the wife of San Jose Sharks left winger Evander Kane that her husband bet on hockey and compromised games for gambling purposes. Kane denied the allegations and said he would cooperate with the NHL's investigation. What are the gambling allegations? Saturday night on Instagram, Anna Kane alleged that her husband bet on Sharks games "with bookies" and threw games for gambling purposes. She also claimed Kane had a gambling addiction that was causing the couple hardship. In response, Kane posted on Twitter that he ha

  16. Yaba daba dooooo!!!!
  17. There are 2 of them. One on North Clearwater Beach and One on South Clearwater Beach near Sand Key. I think the South Beach Boxer is the older of the 2, but I've only been by that one, never in it. I was in the North Beach Boxer about a year or so ago, just after spring break.
  18. Gas, Propane, Spam, Canned Tuna, Chicken, and Corned Beef. Canned Veggies and Crackers. I'm set.
