Dr Fauci?

Ha, that might be better.  At least he won't give up any home runs.  Just walks.

Half of the Marlin's team has tested positive for COVID after more positive tests today, yikes.  This won't last long anyway.

Are they spreading it in the locker room? No way that's all happening outside

It is the best lake in Vermont, hands down.  Not even close really.  Such a cool spot and topography.

I agree. Our favorite place in Vermont.

It has to be locker room or just spending time together.  You don't get 15 players and a few coaches on top of that to just pick it up outside the game.

We did today. Swam and kayaked. Absolutely  beautiful lake, looks like what I imagine a fjord would look like. Hiking up Pisgah tomorrow. What a gorgeous area. 

Like I said, it's my favorite lake in the state and it's the deepest.  I've snowmobiled on it in winter but it feels a bit creepy standing over 300' of water.  There is a nude beach there too.  I think it's on the south end.

Edit to add: It's a pretty cold lake too. I've gone swimming there on really hot days and you would swear the the glacier had just finished melting that morning.

Here in Mass at least, no one should be avoiding going to see a doctor for anything

My 88 year old mil has been going to see her army of doctors for quite a while. Gives her something to complain about to me

@weathafella remember our convo several months ago. Its bad

 

I had my annual follow-up with my Hematologist back in April.  Was a tele-health appointment.  I had to get my blood drawn at a local place beforehand.  I can understand the fear from patients whose immune systems are compromised while they undergo chemo/radiation therapies for not wanting to venture into these hospitals that are also treating Covid patients.  My father-in-law is currently doing chemo for a Glio that was diagnosed in March just as the shit was hitting the fan.  That was a surreal time for them, going to Yale-New Haven Hospital for initial diagnosis and surgery and follow-up at Lawrence-Memorial.

Hope all is well Bob. I have an MRI scheduled for Aug 3rd and have no qualms about it.  Glad My Dr finally opened but they have 25% of the staff onsight.

Hockey has had 0 positive tests for a week. IF there is one sport that can make it is hockey. Those guys are just different.

Different breed, We will see when they get out on the ice with others, I think they are all going to be wearing face shields though so that's a plus.

Conspiracy theorists dabble in plausibilities while negating the probabilities - and that's what suspends their disbelief ... psycho babble feeds back, viola!  they're out to get us -   

But, the Gov of Mass is not helping when they put out products that look like this.  Yet, under the auspices of where are the 'low risk states' vs 'high risk states'  ?

This looks like a child did this - anything that's not us.  Almost smacks like we're all just a bunch of beef-witted plebeians that are too stupid to "get it" so just "tell 'em not to go anywhere"

I don't know if this is lazy or swamped ...probably the latter, but this really needs some sort of qualitative refinement .. It looks like a tongue-in-cheek prop behind "Weekend Update" on SNL.   This makes no logical sense - they're doing rolling percentages and some other explanatory method that doesn't really fit "reality" ... Massachusetts ( for example...) has a population of just over 6.8 million, and a caseload that brings to ~0.4% of the population, and Alaska has a caseload to pop ratio that comes to .01% ....why are they high risk and Mass low risk?    I'm sure there's something else to this but that's bad art/presentation for an increasingly skeptical and perturbed population that's about ready to suck on a f'n covid pipe out of frustration anyway!

They would have been better off if they had conceptualized, 

"...With the unexpected summer-season surging COVID-19 new cases being observed throughout the nation, primarily outside of the six-state New England, NY and NJ region(s), we have determined that the safest course of action is to limit travel as much as possible outside of our region of the country.  " 

At least it would not be insultingly dimwitted - that product ...seemingly attempting to tap into the instinctual blood-red comes off as divisively fear-mongering and heavy handed - almost regime-like verboten in every sense of "Gestapoen" (Gestapo) rule - 'don't go there or else!' ....  

I suspect they are just short-sighted and over stressed ...but that's almost comical

Forever known relating to the awful club fire in RI back in 2003. :( 

Didn’t they more recently play a show that ended up in a bunch of new Covid cases?
I knew a woman who died in that Rhode Island fire. Single mom, her family sued the shit out of the club the band and Budweiser who sponsored it.

One article I was reading said they found a seal that had been bitten by a shark. 19 inch bite diameter.     That’s a big shark

Yes, That was just a few miles south of where the woman died up here.

It’s actually a different band with the same name I think.  
Not sure if any Covid cases came out of it. The show was in North Dakota and no social distancing or masks.

There are great whites all over. Check out this 1164lb guy that was satelite pinged just off the Nova Scotia coast 2 days ago. 

7 recent pings on the cape as well.
