i see your gov'na, mr. kemp, finally dialled up a statewide stay-at-home order
. . . his reason being, he's “just finding out that this virus is now transmitting before people see signs.”

huh?!
. . . fauci (and many others) has/have been talking about asymptomatic transmission for over 2 months

Big Al,
Kemp is very typical of a number of people born and raised here in Georgia
ignorant to almost all science except agriculture. He is becoming less popular with his base with each day as he stumbles along.

Businesses you don't want to own right now:

- anything in retail; lots going bellyup before 2021 sees the light of day

- cruise-lines/-ships

- anything to do with vacation packages, particularly in the 3rd world; gonna be a horrible slaughter in some of these places (india, SE asia, africa, central america, . . .)

Solar,
I have seen a couple of games there over the years. They play in the same league as the Gwen Cherry Bulls, MIAMI Gardens Chiefs and MIAMI Gardens Ravens. Several teams from Broward and even a team from St. Lucie compete in that league. They always have a lot of young talent.

I have also seen a similar league in Orlando, where the Outlaws play. They have teams from all over Central Florida play. It’s always fun to watch. Those kids are very talented. It’s easy to see why there are so many players in the NFL from Florida. Sadly, we have to establish relationships early on with these kids, coaches and parents. I have seen people who refer to themselves as scouts for Alabama, Florida and Clemson attend these games. Not sure if they are real scouts, but these top college football programs do establish a presence.

At least we have Stephen Field, who has connections throughout South Florida youth football, and we have others like Banda who are understanding the importance of establishing relationships early. Rumph also coached youth football in Broward, but he doesn’t appear to have a warm personality. IMHO, Rumph appears old school in his approach, even to recruits and parents. Rumph is very good at developing players with his old school approach, but that approach isn’t great for a recruiter.

Today’s top recruits and their parents and coaches/handlers have very big egos, even though they haven’t accomplished anything in college yet, and they have a lot to learn. IMHO, a good recruiter these days has to hold back on the negative criticism and not chastise players until the sign their NOI.

He does and let's hope they never see the light of day. It will not turn out good for me.

And yes, cruise lines are done. Travel agents are toast. Tourism in general is on hold for a year or two or three.

solarcane

Windy,
when I was a kid I played at Holiday Park on the Ft Lauderdale all star team called The Ft Lauderdale Barracudas, Federal Millwork was my regular season team.
Every year we would play the all star team from New Orleans. We played at New Orleans one year and at Ft Lauderdale the next.

Each player on the home team would host a visiting player at his house for the week. There was no big time fund raiser to stay at hotels in those days,
It is amazing how far Little League Baseball and youth football have progressed,it's great for the kids.

Very true
I saw something where Disney more or less borrowed 5 billion dollars from Canada at 4.75 percent paid in full by 2040, they better hope this doesn't come around again within 20 years.

VA,
Great to see you are doing well.
Be careful my friend.

I think outdoor oriented people are susceptible to cabin fever a bit more intense than people that enjoy binge tv watching or indoor activities.

People that enjoy hobbies like jigsaw puzzles woodworking and crafts are probably fairing well compared to a lot of nature lovers right now.

It sure has—for better or for worse.

This COVID-19 State of Emergency has really put things in perspective though. No live sports anywhere in the world, youth, college, adult, amateur and pro? Never conceived it

It ain't F1 racing... but MAN what a ride THAT would be, huh?! (Riding on go carts so low to the ground feels like you're flying ANYWAY, but at THESE SPEEDS? 😳😬

Holiday Park huh? (Chrissy Evert's home courts... ) I fractured BOTH of my heels in a high bar dismount at Holiday Park during my senior year of high school at the winter college gymnastics workout camp they held there every year. (Many college teams would come down for the warm weather and they would help us high school wannabees.) Couldn't even use crutches for the first 2 weeks after THAT crash! It's amazing that I survived those years, I landed on my head more times than I can count... (My joints STILL creak and crack from those beat downs...) Wouldn't trade it though...

that's quite a statement
and kind of sums up "it's a mad, mad world"

the thing i find funny, is that it's less interesting to me to watch old sports (meaning: old canes' games; ain't never watched any other "old" sports stuff) when the present has NOTHING going on and the future is one gigantic question mark, than when there's a season happ'nin'

i mean, if we're about to play FSU or VA tech, it's sometimes interesting to watch an old win beforehand . . . but now?

We used to watch Chrissy and Jean practice at Holiday Park all the time, her dad was always trying to get us to haul azz over to the football field and leave her the hell alone.

I played Little League Baseball at Croissant Park, played Pony League at Holiday Park, played bar league softball for Jackies Tavern and met Joe Nameth at George English Park while playing against Bachelors III.
Nameth batted 10th as DH and blasted a couple over the fence.

pb/gocanes: as a sports blogger, i found you pretty decent
. . . i could see a couple times why you might get on some of the bloggers nerves, but i never understood the big animus towards you ... particularly never understood the weirdly derogatory, throw-poop-at-your-face posts from OGV

. . . and since i've been blogging, i've supported you in various ways, . . . including one shout-out to you-as-pb, before you came out of that particular telephone booth with your new cape on
. . . but you've never responded to any posts from me, including that pb shout-out
. . . and maybe you don't do that with anyone, and simply prefer lone ranger'ing it

that's cool; blog on, as we say!


- but politically it's different; the few times you've posted . . .
well, keeping it simple:
imo, if you look at the current f'd-up position the usa is in regarding the virus, and your understanding makes you point your finger at new york politicians
. . . then imo, you're one of the "alternative reality" people, like kemp

no hard feelings, but i'd prefer you not post politically, 'cause i tend to rise to the bait . . . and as several people on here have pointed out, such political leanings don't belong here

capiche?

This pandemic is the direct result of a disgusting and unforgivable series of actions by the Chinese government beginning with suppression, then misinformation and finally flat out lies.

Because of those heinous decisions, it’s obvious this thing was here and spreading well before we knew about it. What followed was a massive failure by everyone from the WHO to the CDC to Trump to the individual states.

With regards to New York, I’m sorry you can’t see how the actions of it’s leadership, particularly the Mayor and the city’s top Public officials literally did the opposite of what should have. As late as three weeks ago they continually made some of the most arrogant and damaging statements imaginable to their citizens, which made this thing far, far worse than it should have been.

As far as not acknowledging your shout out....toughen up it’s wasn’t personal.
