That's going to be my home for 2 months, before the move to Florida.


Good luck! Go Seminoles!

Georgia MAY be leveling off, I emphasize MAY.  I hope so.  It was looking like it might grow to the sky.

The virus is still killing people.  Protect the nursing homes, wear a mask, wash your hands, open the schools, and pray for a vaccine.

The vaccine news has been positive of late in early trials.  Third phase about to begin, and then possible approval, availability first of the year hopefully.

Yup I think a college football season at this point is... unlikely.

NFL might manage through, though.

At one point I was worried how I was going to get BTN, since I'm cancelling Xfinity tomorrow. I was thinking I'd need to subscribe, since I won't have any cable account, but I'm no longer worried. There will be no games to watch.

If MLB can't get a hold of it (and they have plenty of $$$$$ worth of resources and motivation to get a hold of it), then the NFL and colleges sure aren't. 

That's why the Mrs. and I are looking at other things for fall weekends. 

It's one thing to come square with no football now. It's something entirely different for September to come and go without a down of football being played.

MLB is attempting to travel. That's not going to work.

NHL is going full bubble, as the EPL did.  The EPL is turning up on average under 1 case per 1800 tests on a weekly basis, going back about two months.  They completed their season this past weekend.

It can be done for the NFL, if the league is willing to make the appropriate changes that have proven effective for other professional sports around the globe.  

It definitely won't work for college though, there are just way too many outside variables.  Like I said before, I think a college athlete is more likely to catch the virus from the social situations OUTSIDE the locker room, compared to any on-field activities including practice, workouts, and games.  But that won't matter, because there will be a MUCH more powerful microscope applied to athletes, than to average students on-campus.

This coronavirus has cost us so much money it’s a joke. We had 2 really nice projects in the bag ready to sign that are put on hold til 2021, and another that was looking very good and we we’re suppose to meet the owners in late March but they aren’t coming to South FL any time soon because of the coronavirus. One was a huge job, a teardown of an existing home right on the beach in Ft Lauderdale to build a brand new 6,000+ sq ft. state of the art modern design home with elevators and everything else you can imagine. Another was a teardown of an existing home in Delray Beach right on the intercostal to build the same type of modern style home although this one was around 4,500 sq ft. And then we had a condo remodel in Palm Beach that this rich fuck bought for $2.7 million sight unseen, and his budget for the renovation was $600 a sq ft. The condo is nearly 3,000 sq ft. All put on hold til 2021, and two of them possibly even lost. Only sure thing is the Delray home, that is a prior client and friend, that one is a lock.

If I could fly a stealth fighter stocked with 20 nukes over China and drop all them nukes on those sons of bitches I would and not even think twice about it. Bastards.
