Re: Baseball suspended......

forced innoculations are next,just sayin.not me tho ,that's how you get sick.as jack webb once said book it

Re: Re: Baseball suspended......

I work for the Pirates in Bradenton and stay on to do Marauders, their high A team.
I have a beer stand I operate and was doing very well. My wife works concessions as well. I was kind of shocked they played yesterday. Handling merchandise and food and money from customers you just don't know.
We had the Yankees last Saturday and who knows if someone was a carrier and brought it down here, gave me money, I gave change to some one else. Just can't take the chance,
I dint worry about me, I am 56 and in pretty decent health. Walk 6 mlles 3-4 days a week. Have a nice round middle but it cost me a lot of money to look like this and it would be a waste to lose it all!
But seriously, if I get it, I would probably be ok. But I don't want to pass it on to a neighbor, (I live in a 55 and over community) or my wife who has thyroid issues.
We need to be responsible. But realize, the politicizing of this is ridiculous too. To blame a party for a disease started over seas that was dealt with like 80's Moscow keeping it hush hush. Offing the whistle blower and not closing travel is crazy. Lets hear about the THOUSANDS of people who have contacted it and are ok.

Stop the spread. In the mean time, thanks gbacci for creating this awesome diversion that doesn't rely on live baseball. Treat each other with respect, have fun, and enjoy this site.
God bless you all.

Turned TV to MLB Network - reruns of the top 100 Players - and To Be Announced seems to be a popular program 😉

if you haven't sen it already,watch ken burns baseball.got me thru the strike.and I agree with mcgriddy.

Re: Baseball suspended......

Another classic baseball video to watch is "When it was a Game" all 3, part 1,2&3. I agree Ken Burns Baseball documentary is top notch, as well as his other stuff, Civil War, etc.

Re: Re: Baseball suspended......

im more of a rock/metal fan but the country music series was great

Re: Baseball suspended......

If you like science fiction, I recommend The Expanse on Prime (2 seasons) and Altered Carbon on Netflix (2 seasons).

Re: Re: Baseball suspended......

The Expanse is terribly underrated. It actually gets better as the series progresses, which to me is a rarity - I get bored by most series that go on for more than two seasons.

Actually haven't watched the Prime seasons, only the SyFy seasons on DVD.

Altered Carbon is also worthy, but the second season pales in comparison to the first.

Re: Baseball suspended......

The Expanse is based on an eight book series that falls in the category of "Space Opera". I would highly recommend reading them if you have the opportunity. Altered Carbon is a great read too.
