    The good news here, a study of some of our golf courses reflect a 17% increase in rounds played this year over last. That's amazing given the late start.

    The way I see it, if my kids were kids again, and they had a 103 fever for several days, and we suspected it might be covid related, we would be very worried. Not in just in a flu like way.

    Listen pal....I thought you were saying you'd treat things the same way, flu or covid. If you did not know of the virus possibility back then, forget my interpretation of what you said. I am pretty sure you did not, but I wondered if you would not be more worried if you did know.

    I got ya, yeah I'd treat it the same. Obviously if my kid came to me and was complaining they were having a hard time breathing sure id take them in and get checked out/treated. If they just have a fever it's something that will just get monitored. Like I said viruses just have to run their course...not much you can do other than just drink lots of fluids

    The "cherry picking" of concerns and outrage with respect to large gatherings is curious to say the least. You would think if this were a deadly and serious pandemic, any large gathering would be condemned for public health reasons. Strange how some large gatherings are perfectly cool, while others are murder-1.
    To infinity...and beyond.

    My daughter and I were late December,,,

    I literally have never missed a sick day of work in my life... I couldnít get out of bed for a few days... burning up, sore, and a non stop cough... it didnít feel like anything I have ever had before....

    If Covid didnít happen...it was a bad flu...it did. So I wonder too..

    Again, on the bright side.....hockey, basketball, baseball all playing and in pretty important situations overall, at least in the coming weeks. And for those who like serious golf competition, the first Major tournament starting today.

    Many of us were hopeful in predicting we might be entertained by this time, based on our knowledge/gut feelings a few months back, are getting a load of sports to enjoy again....and it feels pretty good! (Besides, I am running out of other shows to watch!)

    My frustration (and frustration shared by millions), is the ridiculous double standard and hypocrisy of media coverage. If the media "approves" of the nature of the protest, there is apparently no risk of spreading COVID-19...none whatsoever. It's as though the virus were genetically engineered to magically bypass any media approved protest gathering. It's absurd and insulting.

    People are told to close down their business, even at the risk of losing it (and perhaps losing all that they have). People are told that they cannot have a funeral to bury their dead. Massive MASSIVE sacrifices have been made, all to "flatten the curve." When these same folks see millions gathered together arm in arm, not wearing masks, and the despicable media just glorifying it..it is a slap in the face to everything that they've been told and everything that they have sacrificed for and potentially lost. Especially when this same media attacks a group of 25 people for attending church or wanting to open a failing business to pay bills that they are two months behind on. It completely obliterates any validity in those same voices screaming "mask-up" and "stay home." This is in large part why so many people do not trust anything that they see and hear being reported. The hypocrisy is blatant and obvious.
    In the last 4+ months we have gone from Fauci saying there is no need for people to be wearing masks to some medical professionals claiming if everyone wears a mask this would be over in weeks. Pretty extreme sides of the spectrum from people I think are trying their best who have solid credentials.

    I am not trying to pick on anyone...top tier studies will not be completed in 2020. All we are going to have is low tier studies completed probably with no peer review so there is going to be a lot of educated guessing going on. We are all figuring this out on the fly.

    My point is we will get a lot of information that people want to be true until the science is completed in 2021. That is if things go smooth. If people get things incorrect the first time, if the data is not solid or if the peer review goes wrong for one of a number of reasons we may not even get science that "quickly"

    The best scientists I have seen talk about this will say...they are hesitant to say "this will work for sure" because this is new and right now we just do not know for sure.
    The question is...have we done bad enough for these stubborn coaches to make some changes...or will the sinking continue

    Since the pandemic began, we have learned so much about this virus and with no time to spare. Amazing effort by those who employ their expertise and use their research information to do the best they can, under difficult and complex situations. And lest folks forget, thanks again to the medical folks of the world who went toe to toe with this pandemic, often putting themselves at risk, as they continue to do, even for those who have not yet taken this thing seriously.
