    With all these games getting cancelled, expect to hear even more about the Brady situation.

    She’s so full of shit.  Anyone claiming ‘business as usual’ is a liar.  And the towel bit does nothing.

    Could there be a worse gimmick than shared tables during a pandemic?

    No business may be business as usual

    If eSports don’t grab a bigger audience now, they never will.

    I don’t want to stand in a line with a bunch of strangers to get tested (I’m fine, just sayin’), never mind eat at a table with a bunch of them.

    Good thing Powder is saving all that money on the luxury tax. He’ll be needing it once 1/2 the season goes in the shitter.

    No Bruins. No Red Sox. No college hoops. No programming for NESN for weeks, maybe months.

    This is the opening that Charlie Moore has been waiting for!

    I might learn to play my kids Xbox.  Never watched the Larry Sanders show so maybe I’ll watch that.  Probably haven’t seen all of Curb either.

    Kids soccer suspended until March 23.  But you can still go to the Post Malone show tonight at the Pepsi Center!

    I’m in the now working from home camp.  Decided to flip on EEI and 98.5 for the first time in years.  Holy cow – dueling train wrecks that are exactly as bad as described here and elsewhere.  And Howie Carr has lost his mind too.

    Yet youth sports leagues march on.

    Little League assessments were scheduled for this Saturday, but were postponed to a later date. Hockey tryouts, though, are going on as scheduled. Tonight’s the last night of those, fortunately.

    Shared Viking (no utensils) meals?

    I said this about Joe Gill and it applies to her as well: If you made up a fictional character that acted like them, people would say it was too unrealistic. Honestly, would anyone in her situation respond to friendly tweet from a doctor, saying “If you want to talk about anything, send me a DM” with “I don’t have anything to talk about”? I hope the doctor ignores her when she actually reaches out.

    She says she hasn’t received any emails stating concerns. Maybe people aren’t emailing her because they don’t want to be attacked and doxxed.

    This Bledsoe E60 is spectacular – a revisionist masterpiece

    I would love to be in the room where NFL suits try in vain to preserve the pageantry of the NFL draft in the face of the virus.

    I am 100% in favor of any strategy that results in Roger Goodell shaking hands with as many people as possible.

    NFL fucked over fans at the Dallas SB they won’t have any issues cancelling the draft as a ticketed event and keeping all the money.

    I was thinking the same thing. I imagine we will see a lot of Bruins ‘greatest hits’ and a ton of replays from years the Sox won the World Series.

    We were talking yesterday about how the writers strike years back changed the landscape of everything. Reality tv came to the forefront and society basically changed forever going forward and hollywood changed with how they created shows and expanded content. With no sports, not even golf, for 30-60 days things like sports podcasts, fantasy sports, gambling, ESPN, etc will have to find other ways/things to entertain otherwise they’ll cease to exist. I’d hate to be a data analyst at Draftkings right about now. Perhaps they dive into Esports and get a nation hooked. Perhaps after 2 months people decide not to return to sports and instead take up gardening. Maybe we see a virtual sports league played by real (at first) athletes using VR headsets and playing as a team. I just dont see how its “business as usual” several months down the road.

    The NFL was initially pitching this years Vegas draft as rivaling New Years Eve in Times Square. Yesterday they were talking about doing the entire draft via phone like the old days. Pats67 would be proud!

    Wordpress! prevents me from quoting, but how often is the mother’s day miracle still shown?

    Wonder if there will be a quick push for games in empty arenas. Players don’t seem to be at high risk, so it might be good to get some distractions going. Afternoon games with geographic rivals and they can fly in and out on charters that day and not need hotels.

    It would be a shame of debate-format hottakers started getting laid off due to lack of content.

    $50 says Joe is still planning on going to Disney and the wife will need to clunk him over the head with a rolling pin on the way out the door to the airport to stop him.

    He had goofy shirts made up too

    he had a water pipe burst while he was away.
