  1. i would love to have sports this year but I do not see how it happens. If it does happen, how many asterisks will you have to put on a season where it is quite likely that a number of outstanding players will be sidelined in key games because of the virus. It will turn the entire NFL season into a weird COVID lottery.
  2. Even of the biggest deniers in Republican Governor Brian Kemp is begging Georgia residents to wear masks if they want a NCAA football season this year. I already saw our Bucs LT Donovan Smith whose wife is going to have their first baby does not want to play this year. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2899626-bucs-donovan-smith-says-playing-nfl-games-amid-covid-19-isnt-worth-risk
  3. https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/1984761 Tampa Bay Rays catcher Kevan Smith can't help but notice how people in Florida are dealing with masks during the coronavirus pandemic - and it's a stark contrast to what he's experienced in his home state. "Pennsylvania feels like it's a lot different up there than down here," Smith said Saturday, according to Josh Tolentino of The Athletic. "Obviously, the numbers are a lot worse here. But I felt like you couldn't even walk outside without a mask on (at home). And then here (in Florida), you go out with a mask and we have guys getting called names and all of the above. So just a totally different feel around the country. "(One Rays teammate) was in a store shopping for food and was called a pansy. It's like, 'little do they know.' I went out briefly to just pick up some takeout food and I swear I got like a dozen eyeballs on me looking at me like I'm the weird (one) walking in with a mask." Smith admitted the behavior he's seen is perplexing. "It's just very immature or whatever you want to call it," the 32-year-old said. "But it's just comical. I mean it. It's going on all over the world. We're seeing it firsthand here, so we've just got to stick within our realm and just do what we've got to do to stay responsible and everything should be fine." Florida confirmed over 11,400 cases of COIVD-19 on Friday - the second-highest single-day jump for the state, according to Tony Pipitone and Brian Hamacher of NBC Miami. Florida has recorded more than 244,000 total cases thus far.
  4. Chess is shut down. They could play virtual via computers but then you have to worry about cheating. We are trying to play the major sports and we still have not found a way to play chess live everywhere.
  5. https://twitter.com/RaysBaseball/status/1280267725722529794/photo/1 Yankees get 6 at home and 4 on the road vs the Rays.
  6. That is a pretty big guy doing this.
  7. He has never been an effectivelQB just as a passer. His running game makes coverage of his WRs problematic as he can beat you with his feet when he is healthy.
  8. No minor league baseball in 2020. Not a good sign.
  9. Brady is a bad seed. Not literally a Saint like Jameis Winston.
  10. Stetson wins the NCAA National Football Championship in a close game against FAU.
  11. He said it on TV snowflake.. Derangement is when a guy lies to your face on television and you believe him anyway when he changes his story. With no sports on anywhere, I saw those stupid press conferences and his constant assertion that everything was under control with the virus going away by April. It wa shis constant refrain in February both in tweets and press conferences. Only somebody with their hands over their ears and watching OANN all day would think otherwise. If you can't admit he said it, bragged about it and then had egg all over his face, it is you that have TDS. The biggest break I got in my life was my wife's rehab in the nursing home after her surgery last was in 2019 and not 2020. The NBA, the NCAA MLB and ,most likely the NFL will lose billions of dollars because this numb nut and his followers did not nothing but put on a happy face when this virus had a chance to be minimized. Germany is crediting US epidemologists for their successful response to the virus. Their only astonishment is why did the US listen to own its experts sooner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8yOv4PwttM https://www.factcheck.org/2020/02/will-the-new-coronavirus-go-away-in-april/
  12. I can't even play chess unless it is against a computer online. You could play a person online but then they could cheat. Online computers you can play a program that it is at your level of chess playing strength. My library on Buccaneer games is the only football I think I will see this year.
  13. More great news. USA Today baseball columnist.
  14. We might see everyone play in Hazmat uniforms.
  15. Fauci was far more correct than Trump who said it would disappear by April. He constantly said it was nothing. Then when it spun out of control, he wanted a medal. Clemson had 21 players test positive. Talk about a wet blanket. The NFL may need to have a practice squad of 100. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29336227/21-clemson-football-players-positive-covid-19-latest-testing
  16. The hot weather theory of suppressing the virus just got a cold shower in Arizona, Florida and Texas. Forget Ice Hockey. Multiple Lightning players tested positive for the virus. https://www.tampabay.com/sports/lightning/2020/06/19/multiple-lightning-players-test-positive-for-the-coronavirus/?utm_medium=push&utm_source=pushly&utm_campaign=11033
  17. One assistant Buccaneer coach have just tested. positive and two more assistants had to be quarantined as a result according to Adam Shefter. Not a great start. There is now talk of having 16 practice squad members and looser rules for activation. Arians is actually talking about stashing a QB in quarantine who knows the system to make sure he has a healthy QB at all times.
  18. Plus we still had Patrick Hape on the team. With Lorenzo Neil and Patrick Hape, it would have made a strong rush blocking duo ay the point of attack.
  19. for local schools. He even lured the Bucs into spending money on his dastardly plan to corrupt the morals of young minds. https://www.pewterreport.com/gronkowski-bucs-to-provide-football-equipment-to-local-school/ Gronkowski announced on Tuesday that both he and the Bucs are going to provide Blake High School with brand new football equipment and a storage unit courtesy of the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation. Blake High School unfortunately lost all of their football equipment on May 17th when a fire at the school burned down the shed that held all of the Yellowjackets’ game day and practice equipment. Thanks to Gronkowski and the Bucs, everything will be replaced.
  20. They were only together for one year but the respect the two have for each other is tremendous. I know Alstott tried to reduce his salary to get Neal under the cap. 1999 offseason was the year that Rich screwed up the franchise tag with Chidi Anhanotu. Culvernose knows.
  21. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRRnlRd_B1g It is 54 minute interview. with Lorenzo Neil and Alstott.
  22. Bob Newhart has a good joke about being a bad running back in football. The QB would fake handing me the football and I would run in the line yelling I don't have it, I don't have it, I don't have it.
  23. I am willing to suck at QB for 10 million. Save them a lot of money.
