    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    This is me. Making small talk with people just because...not my idea of fun. I don’t really care about you. You don’t care about me. I’ll still give you a good tip. When I donate blood and get haircuts, I purposely wear nondescript clothing. I don’t need to hear about the time you went to Chicago. I’m firmly in the Jay Cutler “Don’t care” camp.

    I’m a lifelong Bears fan, yet I always liked Rodgers (and Favre). Both are great players. I’m jealous of the success GB has had with them. That said, both have revealed themselves to be huge douchebags.

    I’ll miss Andrew Shaw. He wasn’t great, but he always gave his all. It’s nice to see someone get the most out of limited ability.

    I hope skeptics like Nugent get bad enough cases that they become advocates for getting the vaccine.

    Royals vs Sox Sunday Matinee...1:10 pm CST First Pitch

    Just tuned in on the mlb app and saw the Merrifield SB call. I don’t like it either. I think he did come off the bag, but that probably happens most of the time. He was still over the bag. Based on this call, this crew should be calling safe on Double Plays when the fielder turning at 2nd isn’t 100% on the bag which the ball.

    4-7 GT: CWS @ SEA (3:10 PM CT)

    I was tracking this game at work, and they were up 4-1 when I stopped paying attention. Definitely stunned at the result.

    It’s a huge sacrifice to wear a mask. Haven’t you heard?

    How do they not note that Ruben is in full uniform?

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    Yermin is the type of guy the Cardinals, Twins and As always seem to have. Hopefully he has other teams scratching their heads saying, “Where’d this guy come from?” all season.

    Opening Day

    I actually went to the store and picked up an HDMI adapter so I could hook my phone/iPad to the tv because last year I wasn’t able to get the app to open up. This year it works. Not sure what changed, but I’m pretty happy. I have it on two TVs as well as the iPad and phone.

    Just got the mlb app working on my tv, phone, and iPad. Thanks T-MOBILE! Tuned in to watch the game. Turns out opening day is tomorrow. Who knew?

    Tax Questions

    I’ll be white-knuckling the next seven years hoping not to be audited.

    Tax Questions

    I finally took the time to figure my taxes without claiming my 19 and 21 year olds. Having my 19 year old file independently gave her around a $3600 refund because I put all the tuition expense on her. She made around $10,000 working part time. My 21 year old had a pretty crappy year because his study abroad program was canceled in March for obvious reasons, but he still paid most of the cost by taking out loans. The school gave a small refund for housing, but not much. Then, he couldn’t get hired anywhere when he came back, and now he has his hardest labs, etc, so I don’t even think he’s really looking very hard for a job. He’s getting around $1800. My bill went up $1000 when I didn’t claim them, but the net gain is $4400. I told them just to give me the $500 I lost for not claiming each of them. I hope they get the stimulus checks too. Not getting anything for them last year is what a made me think it was a mistake to claim them at all once they are over 18.

    Not sure I’ve ever seen someone with his ball handling skills have as many unforced turnovers as him. He just loses the handle once or twice every game. I agree, though, if he can develop any sort of shot, he’s going to be great.
