  1. My wife is a substitute and she is getting her vaccine this week.
  2. I'm feeling kind of gross saying this but.... go Browns! I'm taking a shower now.
  3. There are real scientific based studies that agree with exactly what I've posted. They're posted in the Coronavirus forum. Check them out and follow the science.
  4. Good question. I'd probably go with a figure around 25% effective for me to start wearing masks everywhere (I wear them to a number of public places already...grocery stores and basketball practices). Every mask study I've seen speaks to masks being 2-5% effective. That percentage won't put a mask on me. Everything that I've seen that says masks work have been opinion based and not based on significant scientific knowledge.
  5. The spike in numbers speak in my defense and nobody knows how effective masks are. Nobody.
  6. That's a horrible take and contrary to everything I've said since the start. I've never spoken in such a way. @Voice of Reason wouldn't agree with my takes on this, but I'm sure VOR will have my back regarding the "speaking in absolutes" comment. I will speak in an absolute and say that masks aren't effective enough for me to wear one everywhere. Success is measured in different ways. Let's say masks are 5% effective. Is that good enough for you to wear one? Because it isn't for me.
  7. I might be able to agree with mask effectiveness against the flu. The only thing I'm not buying is we have no clue if we've hit our flu season yet. Sometimes it is later (February/March). The jury is still out on effectiveness for Covid though. We’ve had masks since March. We didn't peak until late April. Then November hits and our numbers have been surging since.
  8. Ok. Let's say that masks are working for flu. It wouldn't appear that masks are working for Covid. Can we agree with that? Or is Covid spiking because we aren't wearing masks. I'm confused, because some are saying we have record low flu numbers because masks are being worn. Then we have others saying Covid is spiking because people aren't wearing masks enough. I don't see how you can have it both ways.
  9. Weak flu season... as in the flu strain is weak this year. We don't have a clue if masks are effective with the flu because we have no idea of how prevalent the flu strain is. We do know that Covid is prevalent. We know that at a minimum in public settings masks are being worn nearly religiously. Yet numbers are climbing everywhere. We can blame spread on the private setting all we want but Covid is making its way in the private setting despite distancing orders, work from home, distance learning, and masks. I don't think you can sell the effectiveness on masks based on low flu numbers while Covid runs rampant.
  10. Well for one, you can't say it's a weak flu season and say that masks work because look at the low flu numbers in the same breathe either.
  11. Then all sports athletes, pro all the way down to instructional should be wearing masks when they're playing or shutdown completely. Kansas sent a guy on the court against UK that had symptoms but I guess tested negative before the game. Still seems insensitive given what has transpired over the course of this year. Seems maybe some are taking this more seriously then others. We get to watch our celebs and athletes carry on, but I can't get my kids in a classroom while wearing a mask. It would seem some others need to feel the weight and responsibility but selfishly they get to carry on. Too many inconsistencies... it irritating to watch sports right now knowing my kids can't even get in a classroom while wearing a mask. I don't need to lecture anyone on how well my 10 and 7 year old are doing with tech based learning. We all know that tech based learning is failing across the country. As far as mask wearing in private, that will never be controlled. Never.
  12. Everywhere I've been, masks have been on. I'm just not buying the masks help a lot argument still. Our state and national numbers would be a lot better otherwise.
  13. Arizona currently has the highest per-capita rate of new Covid-19 infections, with 785 cases per 100,000 people over the past seven days. That rate not only leads the U.S., but is the highest in the world, according to NBC News data. For comparison, the Czech Republic, the country with the highest per-capita rate of infection, has reported 653 cases per 100,000 over the past seven days. Rhode Island and California also have higher per-capita rates of infection than any other country. Over the past seven days, Rhode Island reported 671 new cases per 100,000, and California had 658 per 100,000. https://www.nbcnews.com/science/science-news/these-three-states-have-worst-covid-infection-rates-anywhere-world-n1252861 We'll see where these numbers settle. Rhode Island and California have mask mandates state wide. Arizona has no state mask mandates but the major municipalities do. I'm really hoping the masks start working better because everyone, everywhere is wearing them. I'm not too confident though.
  14. Winning heals all wounds! Hard fought victory and a total team effort. Askew and Sarr played great. Toppin with some key buckets and hustle on defense. Allen took advantage of his looks. Don't know how that last shot for Vandy didn't go but we'll take it!
  15. That's as foolish of a take on Covid as I've seen from the get go. That's Branch Covidian territory. The whole testing thing is a joke. Just had a friend test positive. Got tested because loss of smell and taste. Yet... two weeks ago took an antibodies test and no Covid footprint was there. We've tested more then anybody. Can we trust our test results? I've been out and about, everywhere (Walmarts, Kroger, Skyline, Home Depot, basketball gyms, baseball fields, everywhere)... Masks are worn everywhere. Yet Covid continues. Sorry, not a believer. Continue on with your "Americans suck" self deprecation though. Plus, the narrative has been written for every new little virus we have from now on. Masks, shutdowns, distancing. If you work in a food services industry... best be moving on.
  16. This bridge is much like the vaccine for me. I'm going to hold off for about 6 months before I take my chances on it.
  17. Yikes. Can we just play the bench players the rest of the half?
  18. That's pretty much where I am. I have no emotional ties to any of these guys, aside from Dontaie and probably Jackson (mainly because I like the way he plays). Main component missing from this team is PG play. Don't think that can be fixed with the personnel on hand.
  19. Disheartening news. My prayers to you, Miss Goldie!
  20. Little more energy and ball movement. Shooting woes continue.
  21. Is wearing a mask something you will do for every flu/covid season from now on?
  22. The all SEC schedule hurt the Cats this year. I somewhat expected this. UK is one of those SEC schools that need the out of conference as a "break". But to think that Stoops is on the hot seat, please. Get that talk out of here!
  23. Yep. Too much one on one. Too slow with ball rotation. Playing against a senior loaded squad. Going to be difficult to come back.
