The people saying it will come back in a big way in the fall are the same people who said a few months ago that masks don't do anything and now it's mandated. There was flatten the curve and then there was we need a vaccine/cure. The hospitals have plenty of room now. But everything basically still shut down. Those who have it are not contagious beyond 11 days a new report shows. Original estimates of 2 million dead and now 100k (still awful) as it dies out. New reports show it's not even really a threat to transfer on surfaces after we were told the exact opposite. President saying he hopes it will die out in warm weather, gets killed for it and now it might actually be true at least in part. And you really think we should take a second coming in the fall as fact? I think we should reopen everything with safeguards in place. It's possible. Calculated risks happen every day. This can be calculated.

Did you really believe that all of the clowns you saw getting out of the car were actually in the VW?

My favorite part was how he went from saying the experts don't know anything, to saying this can be done with "calculated risk".

If they were so wrong in their calculations at the start, why would you want them calculating anything now?

Well initially masks were being worn by people who were trying to prevent themselves from getting it. That was never the intended purpose of wearing the masks. The masks are to prevent from spreading it to others.

I just saw Moussa Cisse was reclassifying to 2020. That could be old news but figured it could move the discussion back to basketball. Cisse played at CTK for a couple of seasons. He is almost 7’0 with long arms and an incredible athlete. He is still a little rough on the offensive side but is an incredible shot blocker. I remember standing behind him and Kofi Cockburn before a game and boy did I feel small at 6’2 220. Makes me wonder how short people feel. J/K

P.S - looks like he will be attending one of the pay before you play schools but I figure those schools are paying a little less in this environment.

Not old news. Saw that this morning as well. He will announce his school next week and that will be even newer news.
