  1. The logistics are remarkable. The players having to quarantine themselves from their own families; all of the games being played in Arizona, not to mention empty stadiums.
  2. Dodgeball is your example of an "old" movie? LOL
  3. Kids are still playing basketball at the park, so the city had to physically take down the hoop, rim and all. desperate times call for desperate measures I guess

      Want to know the funny thing?  I used to hear about how "kids these days never get out of the house and play games like basketball at the park.....all they do is sit at home and play video games."  Ummm.....I guess that isn't necessarily true.

      @JJ Husker agreed. That spring breaker story making the rounds the last day or two was a real trigger moment for me.

      There was also full on cookout at my neighborhood park with like 15-20 people a few days ago, and there were families on the playground equipment 3-4 days ago as well. City came and put signs up yesterday and even some fencing around the playground.

      @BigRedBuster I was talking about this exact situation to someone yesterday. In Dallas, the parks and trails have become way too crowded for distancing purposes. It's like now that people are forced to stay home, they want to get outside. I don't get it at all; when they're not forced to stay home they're more than happy to be inside and on their phones, watch tv, play videogames, etc. Some psychological warfare going on.

  4. Social distancing has officially been extended to April 30. Happy happy joy joy! Another month of sitting at home.

      We are not "officially" done for the year yet but we are getting close.

  5. Now it's becoming difficult to find eggs...God I wish they would just open the restaurants again!

      Can you not order takeout in your area?

      I have 10 chickens, make that 9, the doberman got 1 this morning.  I have been giving eggs to the neighbors because we have so many currently.  The neighbor behind us has like 40 and gives us eggs to give away as well.  I have told him we are good and so are the other neighbors.

  6. Yeah, I feel ya. The 50 kw blow torches are mostly talk radio, and since the coronavirus, it's all been the same. That being said, it's fun to see how far away you can pick up stations. And it's completely free!
  7. I have a General Electric Superadio 1, an original, along with a C. Crane 2E. I just ordered a Tecsun PL - 880 on advice from another DX'er. Being in California I get quite a few stations from Tijuana after dark. My farthest station was 880 KRVN Lexington, NE, strangely enough. Anyway, I am curious to see if anyone else here practices and, if you do, what radio and specific model do you use? - Street
  8. Well that changed fast!
  9. finally found a loaf of bread after looking for several days...have never been so happy just to have a pb&j sandwich

      I stopped at the store earlier, TP was still empty (or emptied yet again), meat and frozen veggies were sparse but not empty. Fresh produce looked normal, although it was being stocked at the time I was there.

      The Bay Area has been ravaged. The only thing you can easily find is fruits and vegetables. Everything else is bare.

      fruits and veggies wouldn't be all bad.   can do quite well with just those for awhile.

  10. MLB season pushed back until May, at the earliest.

  11. It looks like baseball won't start until May, at the earliest. What a clusterf#&%
  12. The sick and the elderly; those are the ones who should be concerned; not healthy, young people. Talk about mass hysteria.
  13. Why not? It's been proven playing on natural grass is safer than artificial turf. The only reason to use artificial turf is to save money on the upkeep.
  14. Manfred is such a pu&&y. No vacating the title, no suspensions; just a forfeiture of draft picks.
  15. It's hilarious seeing all those coaches turn down the sCUm head coaching position. It would be great if they ended up with Bielema.

      I'm really surprised Bienemy didn't take it.

      Bienemy is poised to get a NFL head coaching job soon, no need to go to CU.

    4. Xmas32

      Yeah taking the CU job would've been a terrible move for Bienemy both monetarily and from a career perspective.

  16. The Houston Astros' press conference was horrendous; basically a PR lesson in what not to do. The owner literally got caught lying. Watch the clip.

      Stealing signs is not illegal and is part of game. Using technology to do so is very much against the MLB use of technology rule.

      Also, it's another one of those unwritten rules.

      Unwritten rules have an unwritten punishment. That’s why I love baseball 

  17. For a good laugh, head over to NetBuffs. They're in full meltdown mode, comparing him to Neuheisel.
  18. Trevor Lawrence is a f#&%ing beast.

  19. great class, considering we've only had 9 wins over the past 2 seasons

  20. Did you watch the SEC championship game?
  21. I just read the report. If true, then it's rape. She said to stop and they didn't.
  22. Does Martinez really give us a better chance of winning than playing McCaffrey?

    1. Savage Husker

      No. He is a gift to other teams and it’s indefensible how comfortable Frost is with rolling him out there when more effective options are available

      The coaches thought so. We just have to trust their judgment on that. I would have liked to see more McCaffery in the fourth quarter though. His limited reps this season generally have been impressive. Next year things will be different for the better, I have a feeling. 

  23. I highly recommend The Irishman by Scorsese. I know it's dropping on Netflix next week, but if you can see it in theaters, on the big screen, it's worth it. One of Scorsese's best.
