Tom Dempsey, a great NFL story, passed away from COVID (sadly a few days after he was declared recovered from the disease). His 63-yard FG was quite the story back in '69.

Wasn't the Bradley gym used in the final scenes of Hoosiers? A classic old school type arena.

Plasma from recovered patients. An interesting concept, worth studying for effectiveness.

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

So I'm watching today's COVID-19 briefing and was pretty impressed by the presentations. Doctors Birx and Fauci seemed genuinely energized by the ability to actually discuss scientific facts, presenting many of the charts that are readily available throughout the interwebs (the charts with sobering ...

How is it any different than Biden.. both are dirtbags
My guess is that Trump's fixers have spent a substantially larger amount of cash to fix the "women problems" than Biden's fixers. I could be wrong, but highly doubt it.

Re: Which (likely) returning playing will improve his game the most next year (2020-21)? Pick 2

To me, it seemed that UMass went as Carl Pierre went. So if Carl can improve the most (especially consistency-wise), they will hopefully continue to feed off his success. It may not be the best thing for Tre to be the most improved. That would mean no one else stepped up their game enough. I will ta...

What are your expectations?

Just curious. In this totally unscientific effort, I'm curious to see your expectations for the U.S.A's return to a semblance of normality. You know, you can head out to the mall, take in a movie, pick which restaurant you want to head to tonight, live sports are back on TV (or you scored tickets to...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

.... I'm by no means an expert on interpreting these charts, and my guess is that their surpassing the U.S. could be a function of the number of cases..... But, in retrospect, it really shouldn't be a factor. If a hailstorm hits a couple of adjoining apple orchards and destroys 300 of the 1000 tree...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

Sorry to return to my favorite chart (linear as opposed to the logarithmic chart) from a few posts above, but after a few days, we see Italy is now flattening their curve enough to surpass the doubling every three days milestone, somewhat paralleling China (and hopefully soon flattening out like Chi...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

The chart that I'm preferring to look at is the the middle (weforum) chart. Looking at either the logarithmic or linear chart, we, like many other countries, are doubling cases somewhere around every 2.4 days, very similar to the path that Italy took. Italy looks like they are now approaching the do...
