    Re: Coronavirus

    The NBA has suspended its season after a member of the Utah Jazz tested positive for Covid-19. I would not be surprised to see more events go from "played without fans" to "suspended or cancelled" in the very near future.

    Do you mean the actual liberal agenda, or the fantasy liberal agenda Fox talks about?

    Just claim you're a relative of Clarkson player. I'm hearing 4 tix per player.

    By the time you have a significant number of cases, it's too late. One of the troubling things about Covid-19 is that you become contagious before you show symptoms, and a lot of people don't ever show symptoms at all. If there are two confirmed positive tests, it's a pretty good bet that there are a bunch more local cases that have not yet been identified.
    Yes, it seems like on average it takes Five days for you to show symptoms. So think of where we are at, imagine an exponential increase in five days, and this is where we will be. Which is scary. Mass had 100 percent increase in cases in one day. People have to insist to their employers they will work from home. If you can’t work from home be strapped with a lot of hand sanitizer and wear a mask. I have seen some wearing masks here in the last day. I think within one week all will wear gloves and masks in public.

    Not me. We need Arlen, or Grant, or Nicole to make that happen! No question they'll come through... right? :-)

    Watts are you talking about!? Speak for yourself. Some famous old dude said, "Give me hockey or give me death". I subscribe to his thinking.

    Yes, it's sad that someone's one shining moment has to take place in an empty arena. But you're right, sports isn't life and death, much as we try to make it so.

    The Ivy thing appears to for now only apply to spring sports, however the NCAA announced that all tournament events for all sports are going to be played with no fans: https://twitter.com/marcatracy/statu...38884848852992

    There is no crying emoji available, otherwise I would have just posted that. My apologies for offending your delicate sensibilities!

    Looks like we can jump right to the semifinal round:
    Mercyhurst vs. Wisconsin
    Northeastern vs. Minnesota/Ohio State winner
    Clarkson isn't an Ivy, so it wouldn't be bound by an Ivy League decision.

    Ema Schumer @emaschumer
    BREAKING NEWS: The @IvyLeague has canceled all athletics practices and competitions for the remainder of the academic year. The presidents of the eight schools unanimously voted in favor of the decision. More to come in @THCSports
    This is getting fricking ridiculous! Schools are showing how much they follow/promote the liberal agenda!
