I guess you can't blame them for trying to salvage some revenue, but I fear they are really going to mess up the next season.


There is zero chance that they start these playoffs and everything runs smoothly.  You are already seeing it happen in baseball. Players will start testing positive and will be sitting out games.  It may start with just 2 or three, but then whole teams are going to shutdown and then how do they run playoffs -forfeits?  They will have to stop the playoffs, and then there is that much doubt about starting the next season.


This one is so obvious....

  • What's Ghey Pride?
I'd love to see Caps back on the ice, but I have heard a few personal accounts from friends that know young healthy people that got Covid-19 and died within days. Others got it and survived, but said it was the worse thing they ever got. Worse than any flu by far.

Some of us old farts should remain careful and young ones should not think themselves invincible.

We keep hearing conflicting information. Fucking dumb ass people in charge.

And why in hell are we playing at Scotiabank Arena for all three games?  This entire restart is stupid.

NHRA lost me when went to 1000 feet over safety reasons at shithole tracks they stopped going to because they are shitholes, like Englishtown
