    I don't think golf is in the same kind of bubble as hockey proposes.



    Hockey proposes getting everyone there by their charters.  Then bus travel only to key hotels.  Meals in the bubble.  Perhaps some targeted entertainment.


    However: they won't be locked down with the doors welded.  They could roam.  I think their biggest risk is the service staff.   These hotels and rinks require a lot of service staff.  They can bring it in, just as like happens in the retirement homes.

    I dont disagree but golfers don't sit shoulder to shoulder on a bench or gargle and spit Gatorade either. I'd think that a hockey locker room is a lot more dangerous than a golfers lockeroom. Many golfers dont even use the locker room....travel to the course already changed....grab a ride back the hotel after a round for a shower.  These hub city locker rooms are going to be interesting with multiple teams utilizing the space.

  2. I wish they would just call it a season and think about 2020/21.  Golf tournaments just opened up the last two weeks and multiple golfers and caddies had to withdraw due to positive testing. This is all happening in a bubble environment. Cant imagine what will happen with Hockey and other sports once camps resume.

    Am I the only one who likes the arena being out there in the weeds?  Tom wants development around the building.  I think that is going to be difficult unless something happens with NC State.  Heck, just North NC state is building a whole new complex.


    Anyway, it is really convenient for us right now.  But the kids hate it.  If Tom gets his new arena downtown, then the kids will be happy and I can watch from my easy chair.  Since that is 10 years off, I think it is all good.  :)


    But DO expect him to start making a lot of noise about this soon, probably once the virus settles down.

    I'm  fine where it is...pretty easy access from all area's. Downtown access would have to change drastically for reasonable access. I'll probably be in the recliner as well when an arena would be available downtown.

    I'm 60 for another few months, and grateful every day not just to be alive (had a stress-induced heart attack at 42) but to still feel in my early 30s, creatively, at heart, and physically. Just wish it were also true of energy!


    Mrs. Shelf is certain she did too, in early February. Had a cough/cold she couldn't shake for weeks and ultimately got the first breathing treatment of her life to clear it. Doc said she was about to go pneumonic. 

    Mrs. SLAP and I were sick for 3 weeks in early Feb. The wife had it first and I thought I dodged the bullet. Unfortunately not the case... I had a breathing treatment from the doc as regular breathing was difficult.  I tested positive for flu and had a chest xray performed. Doc called back an hour later and informed me I had pneumonia. Just an informational tidbit, UNC Chapel Hill  is performing a study for the antibodies. My wife had the test performed at no cost. If you are interested in the test you may want to see if your doctors practice is involved in the study. I am going to have the test performed.

    News for ya: Sean Hannity, not an expert.


    Neither you nor anyone else has any idea of suicide mortality as a result of a prolonged down economy, let alone that the decline would be prolonged. So as long as we're into sheer speculation, how about the chance that the development of a vaccine and the excitement generated by the ability to SAFELY get the economy humming again would reduce suicide? 

    Hannity,lol.Might as well follow Rush.https://www.nydailynews.com/coronavirus/ny-rush-limbaugh-coronavirus-covid-19-thinks-nineteen-20200313-7rpnlxvaljhyribh6sxgg5f6ja-story.html

    Article says he's not re-signing with the team, which is slightly different from just quitting. Still, pretty inauspicious start for Peters.  

    Well if he is leaving due to the Peter's hiring as the article states he's quiting the team. Spin it anyway you want but obviously he's not a fan of Peter's.

    We have far too little data to make any conclusions at this point. 

    Exactly! So to your point this virus cannot simply be described "This is NO different than many other diseases like the season flu, H1N1 Swine Flue, Zika etc .etc.". Each one of the above were very different in their charateristics. If you have no data how can you conclude it is overblown?  Doesn't sound like a rational scientific decision to me.
