Disneyland is open in FL...right. What were they thinking. The LV idea was better, if the casinos had stay closed. Now the WWE has blow up, and that is a bad sign.

I'm watching Wrestle Mania without fans & it is terrible. Hard to watch.

I would just play the last two rounds & go home fast. Don't test after it starts. Get well after it's over. Offer free ICU beds to the winner. People are always going to bitch about the 2020 season. Just get it over.

I just worry about James not getting his last chance.

MLB is a disgrace. I think it will lead to not having a season next year. I hate the rule changes.--Yohe

Found out last night and confirmed again today that Iíve tested positive for Covid while being back in market. As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.

I'm sitting here watching EPL futbol, and have watched La Liga and Bundesliga matches...

In contrast, our country:

Reports: Multiple St. Louis Blues test positive for COVID-19
https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/29407341/multiple-st-louis-blues-test-positive-covid-19

If we weren't suck an utterly fucked up country, we *might* have been able to finish a season.

American exceptionalism.

I'll add that this is Manchester United's fifth game in the restart:

June 19, June 24, June 27, June 30 & July 4.

I'm not saying that they're going to get through this unscathed. But they went through weeks of training, and have gotten this far. The UK had a horrible outbreak. They are playing again in Italy, which had a horrific outbreak.

We're so screwed.

Rondo with a broken finger.


Not that I have any love for Rondo. Just that the roster gets thin, especially with Bradley out (though none of Rondo's skills really overlap Bradley's).

Howard is turning jerk again. You just hope he doesn't screw us out of a title.--Yohe

Adam Silver is going to pull this off, while the rest of the country stumbles and fumbles around.

Amazing.

There is a long time to pull this off:

Jul 22: exhibition games start
Jul 30: Season Restart
Aug 15: Play-in tourney
Aug 17: Playoffs start
Aug 31 - Sep 13: Conference semifinals
Sep 15 - Sep 28: Conference Finals
Sep 30: NBA Finals begin
Oct 13: Last possible date for Game 7 of NBA Finals

Odds are likely we get to Jul 30 and the restart.

We're talking about 2.5 months beyond that for a Final to end. I'm less optimistic about that, but we'll see.

Lakers basketball is on my television.

Dion Waiters adds a little sizzle.

And the NBA is gonna finish Uncle John. Gonna get easier as riff-raff leaves.

Shit... I didn't even think to have that on as background noise while working at home. On NBA TV now, and then on Spectrum Sports Net at 8pm.

Join me on Waiters Island?

Expectations remain low, but he adds something they didnít have.

I think they need background sounds to block out all the player's cusing & profanity all the time. How many forms of "fuck" can the network take? ---Yohe

Super cool piece by O'Connor on Caruso, bringing the advanced metrics and tons of video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YQLgVv3HFw

Highly recommend. O'Connor can be overly enthusiastic which can wear on one... but if you can live with that, everything else in things like this is really terrific. This isn't short either... quite in depth analysis.

I don't miss Rondo. I really miss Bradley because he gives the Lakers more depth and Vogel more options. We are going to need Caruso to be strong.
