    If you really do view anyone who is voting for Trump in such black and white lenses, then I feel bad for you that you view the world and people around you that way.
  2. Isn't there a user on here named, "Charlie Haeger's Knuckles"? Whole new meaning to that username.

    Ron Gardenhire retires effective immediately

    I can't believe he's only 62. I felt like he was 62 about 15 years ago.

    Kopech update

    I'm kind of torn on how I feel about whether his reasons for opting out are "legitimate" as has been debated in the last few thread pages. However, if he really knows himself well enough that he truly feels he would be a liability to his team's performance if he played this year, then maybe he made the right move, for the sake of the team.

    I've seen this comparison made a few times on here, I don't think its a great comparison. I think you could say it like this.... The option is like driving in icy road conditions. You are putting yourself and others on the road at risk that you might crash into them or vice versa. Anyone who gets in their car is taking a risk, but you aren't putting others at risk who are trying to play it safe and stayed home.

    Yeah I feel like there are still a ton of people working in non-"essential" jobs. Tons of landscapers and construction crews out everyday. I can't blame them for being desperate to still work, but it doesn't seem like there is really full enforcement. Has felt more like like a kinda-sort closed down...

    So how do you guys think Joe Borchard is handling the pandemic?

    I'm with you on the disappointment of putting work in for a race and having it feel wasted. But hey, the fitness is there, keep it going and now you can run an even faster marathon in the fall! Once my spring race got cancelled I decided to focus on 5k speed so that when I do marathon training in the fall I will be faster than I would have otherwise.
