So I am going all hockey coach on covid-19 here, indulge me.
Team, we just finished the first period of this battle and we are getting our asses handed to us. Score wise, we already have more positive cases per-capita than China and we had a two-month head start, let that sink in for a second.
Offensively (government and public) our first line (federal govít) got worked, you werenít prepared and didnít take it serious enough (lack of tests) and your effort was garbage to start off. Youíve got it in you, just dig in and find it, your last couple of shifts were better, now build off it. Hey captain stop saying stupid **** to the refs and be a leader.
Second line (state governments) some of you are giving it all you've got (NY and Ohio) but some of you are mailing it in (Florida, looking at you and your beaches). All of you need to get your heads out your *** and get on the same page. Third line (supply chain, essential workers), you are our grind line, we got a lot to left to play the next two periods, be prepared and keep your head on a swivel. Fourth line (rest of the American public), you just donít get it for the most part, the rookies on the fourth line hitting Spring Break like scenes out of a 1980s frat movie. You are benched, you are out of this game, just sit down (on your couch at home) and support everyone who must win this one for us and if you do take a shift, donít do anything stupid, get your essential goods (medicine and groceries) and get off the ice.
Defensively and goalies (healthcare workers and scientists) you didnít get much help out there from the forwards. You got creative getting the puck out (developing your own tests), you havenít panicked, and you are laying out blocking shots (risking your own infection) and putting it all on the line. If it wasnít for you, this one would be over early. Youíve given us a chance to win this oneÖ
And win it we will, we know our roles, each one of us all, now go and execute, you are better than what you just showed that first period, 330 million of us united and Covid-19 doesn't stand a chance. Letís have at it and bury this virus!
