  1. Great news for Isaiah!! Good to see that hard work gets rewarded.
  2. There's a vaccine for the seasonal flu. I'm guessing you have the statistics of the people that die from the flu that were and were not vaccinated. So if you can post those that would be great. We can evaluate them.
  3. Or you could run around shooting your guns outside a police station, drive 100 mph down a residential street, shoot heroin with one hand while smoking crack with the other, drive without a seatbelt, smoke your cigarettes in a bar/restaurant/plane. Damn, your liberties are being taken away one by one. What will you do.
  4. As long as you and your loved ones aren't part of the "close to 0", then I guess it's ok, right?
  5. Certainly, asymptomatics won't be sneezing and coughing often since they don't have those symptoms but they still are talking which can still spread the virus; unless they are taking precautions, i.e. wearing a mask, social distancing. The risk is certainly decreased but it's not 0.
  6. Rioters and Looters - Possible. My statement was based on the protests not the riots/looters. One could be asymptomatic and pass the virus. So checking temperatures may catch the ones that are symptomatic but not the ones that aren't displaying symptoms. It's great that UT has implemented these precautions but the only thing that will stop the spread and play football is for all players to play in a bubble, i.e. NBA, and follow the rules of the bubble. I don't see that happening. Football is a contact sport in any state. If one player has the virus, it'll spread.
  7. The 2020 National Champion will have an asterisk next to their name. It won't be a legitimate championship, IMO. Have playoffs been canceled? I haven't heard.. Walmart, Home Depot, grocery stores in my area all require masks. The protesters wear masks, except the ones that stormed the Michigan courthouse. So are they going to play football with masks? It was reported that one of the kids that tested positive in the Ga High School caught it, believed to be, playing football per his Aunt.
  8. I was at a couple of Duncanville games last year. Yes, he played D during the games I saw. Jake Majors, Ja'Tavion Sanders, Billy Bowman played both ways last year.
  9. FYI, Ja'tavion Sanders plays both ways too....
  10. Cool Hats. But as a former baseball player, I only wear fitted hats.
  11. You start with naming the Suites, then naming the seating sections; instead of Section 1, it'll be Section Vince Young.
  12. ECMO https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/04/14/coronavirus-heart-lung-bypass/
  13. My statement was based on positivity rate and daily cases. A glance at those charts, NY is doing rather well compared to Texas.
  14. The request was based on projections. As any good leader would do, always request way more than you need, negotiate down from there. Luckily, they didn't need what was projected. NY is doing good now compared to other states, Texas being one of them.
  15. https://www.factcheck.org/2020/06/trump-inherited-more-ventilators-than-have-been-distributed/ Yes, I agree should take it to another thread. Read the blue box in the middle of the article above. "All of these ventilators were serviced, recertified and operable" Also, since June 17, the govt has "distributed 10,640 ", which is less than the 16,000. So, NOT basically empty.
  16. 16,000 is hardly empty https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/24/politics/fact-check-trump-16000-ventilators-stockpile-obama/index.html
  17. Something from Mississippi https://thespun.com/sec/mississippi-state/sec-football-star-change-mississippi-state-flag-or-im-leaving?fbclid=IwAR2vmO4lNwzjgzqPzdINLGc3-_06gmJEVkkLViOt_eRxsHm3R8qHn_dFnSE
  18. Hard to say at this time. I've only seen this reported by one website. Can't tell if someone got trolled or not. Those tiktok kids, ya know.
  19. I agree he shouldn't have resisted once he was told he was under arrest. However, in learning about a reason why he did run and fight, I understand why he did it. Again, I don't agree but I understand why. Mr Brooks was already on probation. He was released from jail and was trying to get his life back on the right track for himself and especially for his family, two little girls and wife. Any contact with police may have resulted him going back to jail. I'm sure that ran through his mind once he heard the words, you're under arrest. So no, just alcohol counseling would not have been it. Did either of the police officers run his name to see what his situation was? Perhaps that may have influenced the officers actions. Who knows. Police officers go through training on when to shoot and when not. They already patted him down and he didn't have any lethal weapons on him. Is a taser a lethal weapon? Depends on what day it is from what I've seen. In any case, another tragedy.
  20. I'm a Cubs fan so it doesn't matter to me either way. My opinion of what it should be changed to is the Texas Bluebonnets. They could have bluebonnets sticking out of their helmets when they come up to bat.
  21. I don't read the Atlantic but given what media facts rated them, I would read it. I don't read opinion pieces because that is spun to fit a certain narrative, right or left; unless I need a good laugh. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/06/04/trump-explains-his-favorite-bible-stories/?fbclid=IwAR0gFo1WcQjG6DvHRgKaySRzYB6Szx7AWQWeub6EOP1nEEzVQDqhiNNSZDg I would make a more general statement rather than singling out one side or the other. Read the articles of your choice and decide for yourself if it make sense. Search other sources to support what was read. Does the article cite sources? Or is it just opinion? Do the news organizations update their articles based on new information arising? Do the news organizations retract/correct incorrect statements? No one website will get it right all the time.
  22. There was a post (from a right wing account) on twitter and facebook showing pallets of bricks under a highway in my town. The post said that antifa is placing them out there for blah, blah, blah. Our police department shot it down. It was fake news. The pallets of bricks were used for a construction project. So, pictures of bricks... yeah. Then there's the fake antifa account run by the right: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2020/jun/01/facebook-posts/suspended-twitter-account-fans-misinformation-abou/
  23. That's why the title says "so far". The people that came out at night were different people than the core of the daytime protesters. The looters and rioters were opportunists, gangs and criminals. Totally separate from the protesters. Were some embedded during the day, probably, opportunists.
