    NYC is reopening because they have "bent their curves" down on every measure, new cases, deaths, testing percent, "active cases". Lots of other places are opening despite not having met the criteria they're supposed to meet; NY is doing so "legitimately".

    It's looking good right now, but all these non-social distancing demonstrations are not doing us any favors on this front.

    Bemidji State announced today they are bringing everyone back to campus on schedule. Students will be one to a dorm in many of the dorms and many classes will be "remote". Hockey may indeed be right around the corner!

    Hockey Canada still hasn't decided what the regular season will look like for minor hockey (boys and girls), so far everything is on hold. No registrations for the fall, no tournaments approved.....nothing.

    The only thing we've heard from the OWHA (Ontario Women's Hockey Association) is that we will be able to register players sometime in June but without collecting any fees. Hoping to have more clarity on what the season might look like by the end of June.

    Following Canada's lead on National teams and camps. In addition, Canada has cancelled all stay over camps and still have not made a decision on day camps.

And finally, Brown is adding two varsity sports, women's sailing and coed sailing.

    Correct... I just figured this was the more appropriate thread for the article. No "misdirection" intended. Just an article about a school and that they are keeping hockey which, according to the thoughts of many on this thread, would be one of the first sports to go. That is all.

    Dawn Staley, South Carolina BBall coach, was on EsPN radio this morning and the school is bringing back basketball players July 1 and listening to the steps they will take is going to be interesting and complicated. But, they are going to try it out. Football goes back on June 8. It is interesting how basketball can go back, but not hockey since they are the same season.

    Love the Charlie Vincent information. I was watching Santa Anita Horsetrack today for one race and the Track Personnel are quarantining together. I'm interested in seeing how the model works and maybe other sports can copy it if it goes okay.

    Re: Coronavirus

    Memorial Day weekend. Funny how all those guys are still so young in my memories, even Vincent Charlie. For those of you who have not been in a war zone, this is not a bad approximation. You know you will probably die, just not when or how. The next person you see – if you see him - might be the one who carries your death, and there is no place to hide with no end in sight. Watching the mobs on the beaches, in the parks, and in the bars doesn’t show me anyone whom I would have at my back. No problem, though. They have all volunteered to walk point and Charlie Vincent will sort them out for me.

    Tim, I’m sure you realize that the only age group with any testing at all for “underlying conditions” is seniors. Generally, no one gets tested until they have a BHE (bad health event, my term), and so no one has any idea how long the condition has existed. Twenty years ago, during a BHE, my wife discovered she had celiac sprue. Did that just kick in when she hit 50? Of course not. She can look back at events in her life that were obvious signs of the disease, but she was never tested for it. Ten years ago, during another BHE, she discovered she has heart disease. Again, she is able to look back at events from even her early life and realize that they were signs of the disease. When you think about it, how often does a baby go to sleep and never wake up, or a kid drop dead playing a sport? When your doctor describes these as rare, she’s not saying the disease is rare (they don’t know without testing), only that deaths attributable to the disease are rare. Those people thinking they are immune to dying from Charlie Vincent because of their age are just whistling in the dark. I hope they are correct, but I don’t believe it. In fact, you can determine what doctors think by watching what they do. The fact that they are taking extraordinary steps to keep their family members of all ages from getting CV tells you all you need to know.

    Stay safe and enjoy your family!
