    This is a fascinating commentary from Bayern Munich on the future of both athletes’ pay as well as what sports franchises may be in for at least in the near future. Much will be dictated by how long we wait for a cure or vaccine but in the meantime there will probably only be a fraction who return to any kind of large gathering anywhere on earth-at least anytime soon. I will add that the industry I retired from as a senior executive is absolutely terrified where this could potentially lead. If it’s a matter of just a few more months it might only be a lost season or year. But if there are waves here or around the world and a vaccine is more than a year away this is frightening until then. https://www.bavarianfootballworks.com/2020/4/4/21207569/oliver-bierhoff-karl-heinz-rummenigge-coronavirus-transfer-fee-boom-germany-bayern-munich The reach of this may be extraordinary: from Disney to Myrtle Beach to Michigan stadium to Fenway park to a cineplex to a restaurant to a hotel, airplane, cruise ship and on and on. Even to weddings and church services. And I haven’t said a word about the lost income of those who might go. Can I also mention that as a 73 year old man with heart valve disease I had not really been overly concerned with its eventual replacement. (Miracle surgery called TAVR that is one or two nights in the hospital-Mick Jagger had it recently.) But if I somehow contract the coronavirus I would have a new and serious complication and concern. The result is that over the years I built a wine cellar of over a thousand bottles. Today, of course, there is only one clear and somewhat reassuring solution: to begin drinking it down. 🍷and best of health to all! And to memories of the good old days....

    Gents. This chapter started on June 4th, 1990 at 0800 hrs and it all ended this morning at 0700 hrs. March 27th, 2020. I made it through my career relatively unscathed. I had one bout of cancer (God was looking out for me for sure) and a few burns, bruises, scrapes and sprains...and only 1 divorce ...over 29 years and 10 months of service. I AM NOW OFFICIALLY RETIRED from the Fire and Emergency Medical Services. 😲😎 It's kind of weird to be honest. Surreal. And it's unfortunate that I wasn't able to have a send off party like we always do for retirees. I'll maybe get it another day down the road. And I have postponed my retirement of a trip to Germany for another day for obvious reasons. So it's a little bittersweet in that regard. BUT...I'm fortunate to have been a able-bodied servant to my fellow man for almost 30 years. And I am grateful for what I now have as I move on to the next chapter of life at the ripe ol' age of 51. I've got my health. And I've got plenty of plans, and am willing and able. I feel a little guilty leaving at this moment with so much going on. Well...I'm not gonna lie...not TOO guilty. My replacement is a good dude who has a well-earned reputation of pretty much being a badass. The Division is in great hands as everyone is dealing with CV. The good news for you guys is now I'll be able to post even more🤣 Singing off as EMS-C #60981

    Biff does a great job of taking in mostly kids who would have been highly recruited athletes anyway and making it all about himself, always has been. Not a lot of talent development going on, just taking kids who would have been great if they played at SFA or some random public school. I guess I just have more respect for the coaches who take what they're given and make something out of it. To me taking a kid who can't get out of his own way his freshman year and developing him to the point where he's playing college football at any level is real coaching, not taking credit for developing a middle school All-American you won a bidding war for who would have been great already. The big problem with Biff is that when he was at Gilman at least some of his lesser instincts were suppressed because there were genuine quality people there in the administration and on the coaching staff, and I say that as someone whose family has gone to McDonogh for generations. He wouldn't have dared to talk trash on twitter or wear a wife beater on the sidelines at Gilman because the AD and Headmaster had the balls to tell him no. Biff really only had one blowup at Gilman and it's when he got ejected from a game at UMD where Gilman was getting destroyed by Manatee. He's got no oversight at SFA, they need his money too badly. Just to hammer home my "buying the best players isn't the same as actually being a good coach" point, Biff has an atrociously bad record all-time against schools that are even close to him in talent. Against teams ranked higher than his team since 2009 his record is 1-15. He's 6-14 against teams ranked in the top 100 nationally in this same time period. 91-4 against teams ranked outside the top 100 though. With all the talent he has it makes me think the main problem is coaching.

    I was in Harris Teeter this morning when I happened upon a pretty heated conversation between two older guys in the wine department. They seem to know each other and it didn't take long for me to realize they were "discussing" politics. They were on polar ends of the political spectrum and they weren't agreeing on anything. What got my full attention was when one of the guys screamed out..."well, if you support The Cheeto, we can't be friends". Needless to say...that was profound. All of you know that I despise Trump. I do...and I don't see that changing anytime soon. But I have many friends who love the guy. And I don't see THAT changing anytime soon either. So what this little diatribe is about is this...I'm not gonna dump current friends that happen to love "Trumpy The Ass Clown". I reckon I can pity them...but as far as I'm concerned...we're all still friends. I'm not sure they feel the same way...but I hope they do. Like Ms. Violet said when I told her about what I overheard... "Rufus, we all gotta find a way to get along" I'm not saying 1800 tequila solves everything...but it solves a lot. Stay safe guys....

    So they have 3 good games. CEN10, IMG and DVille. That schedule is very underwellming for a team with the money and players they have. They need to join a top league ASAP. Playing canadian and fly by nights academies is a joke,

    The virus known as Joe-Vid 19 was unleashed after Biden moved to the top of the democrat contenders. Once the New world Order caught wind they knew that Biden would get crushed by Trump in a debate. He can’t string two coherent sentences together. Now Biden won’t have to debate live against Trump. Don’t want voters to see the onslaught. Then they are now pushing for mail in voting so they can rig the election. This Bio Terror was released by the deep state to increase Biden’s chances of winning. Democrats are on record of wishing the country gets destroyed just to own Trump.

    Tbh Big Drop you're one of if not the most reasonable poster here. I hope you're around for awhile longer. You've been to places and done things that right now I can only dream of and in all honesty probably won't get to do regardless. But I hope and pray everything goes well for you.

    Doubt the state investigates, nothing really to investigate. He displayed mild symptoms. Hospitals are keeping spaces open and those displaying mild symptoms are most likely not going to get a bed. Even if a facility has space, they are going to try and keep it open due to the fear of influx of those displaying much more severe symptoms. There’s not even enough tests to give to everyone who has the symptoms, let alone hospital beds to put them in. Sadly that’s just the way it is and that’s the problem with this, no one knows, it’s not like it’s the flu.

    Thanks guys but financially I am fine... pride just taking a hit.. never had to ask for nothing or file something like that..plus I am used to working not sure what I am going to do with myself.. more concerned with my sobriety more than anything .. March 2nd would be 3 mths.. really want that chip.. More important than me I hope everyone else will be ok.. I know a lot of folks can't live on unemployment. Worry about them... Wife wants us to go volunteer for meals on wheel or food banks or something like that.. probably a good idea might do that

    I'm outside plenty. Going on walks, projects in the yard...feels good. I don't go to movies much, but have watched about the same number at home now as normal. Had take-out for dinner last night to support one of our local favorite restaurants. They appreciated it very much, and we enjoyed it as well. We've gotten creative with exercising, supplementing equipment we have at home with other workouts. This is not what we wish for, but there are ways to make it better. Not ideal, but better.

    So, 73 7th-13th grade students and the cheer team are holed up in a Hilton Hotel somewhere near Fapout, Alabama and the founder of the school, Dustin Devaughn, has no plan whatsoever to protect them from the global pandemic. This is why people with no background in education shouldn't be anywhere near kids. Time for state government to step in.
