The sports world has been brought to a grinding halt, by the corona virus. By now, everyone knows that every major sport, or sporting event has been canceled or postponed for around 6 to 8 weeks at least. Everybody but the NFL, which is proceeding like nothing is wrong, is taking precautions to keep their players and organization safe. It makes you wonder if the NFL hierarchy is concussed. It just solidifies the fact, that the NFL is one of the most primitive and backward organizations in the world. The newly ratified players agreement also supports this. Let’s spread the virus, we don’t start play until September, and no one who is 60 or older plays football. Over all, the sports world is not the brightest bulb in the room, anyway. Even the NBA commissioner was talking about having some games, to help the American psyche. What would really improve the American psyche, is too get back to work, feel productive and be able to pay the bills. The governor of Florida has shit for brains, also. He refused to close beaches during spring break, which was a direct move to kill old people, and make sure they would be exposed to the virus as much as possible. Especially when all those people come back up north, and expose more old people. I feel once this is over, that the government should build a canal across northern Florida, so it would be easier to quarantine the people that went down there, if we have a future pandemic. Obviously, Florida officials do not care about health and safety. This entire crisis is historic, and no one seems to realize what a threat this is, to our everyday life, and the American way. This is the worst economic crisis, since the great depression, and people are not doing their share, to keep everyone as safe as possible.
The main problem, is that this is the first time, that anything like this has happened in the history of the world, let alone in anyone’s lifetime. Nobody, and I mean nobody, knows what is going to happen. If fear of the unknown is a problem, then we are at an all time high, for stress and anxiety. The more our high officials speak, the more they just look stupid, because none of them, in there entire lives, have ever answered a question, by saying, I don’t know. That should be the answer, to almost any question concerning this virus, and emergency. If this gets as bad as some feel, and again nobody knows, it will really expose just how mediocre are health care system is. Already, the lack of testing is putting us way behind, in knowing what is really going on out there. Thank you money grubbing FDA. These are tests, not drugs that might kill people. We can only hope that most Americans are staying home and not mingling, that will help stem the tide. Hopefully, warmer weather may help the situation, but this is not like the flu, so who knows. These waters are uncharted, but it still does not mean, that all will be lost. Like everyone else, we will just have to see what happens on a daily basis. If we follow the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, we can only hope that we will see the light at the end of the tunnel sooner than later.
Of course, you can not write about the corona virus pandemic without discussing, TOILET PAPER. I still feel that the governor of Florida and the NFL had something to do with this. It has been shown, that a family of 4, should go through about 17 rolls of toilet paper, in about 2 weeks. Now, there were pictures of numerous people on various sites, that had at least 60 rolls in the their grocery carts, and sometimes even more. Some have said that people were buying in droves, to sell on E Bay. I was amazed, that the focus for so many people, was toilet paper. There are other ways to clean yourself, after a bowel movement. I am not going into all of that in this blog. I am trying to figure out, what this says about people, in general. One thing ,that there was not a shortage of, during the entire time of panic buying, was fruits and vegetables. Maybe buying toilet paper, and not following the CDC guidelines, have some kind of relationship. Maybe these people know, that they are not going to make the sacrifices, that other people are going to make, and therefore they feel the crises will last a lot longer than anticipated, and things like shelter in place, may last 4 to 5 months. It makes you wonder, if toilet paper has an expiration date that nobody talks about. Maybe something will go wrong with the toilet paper, if stored for more than 6 months, which may cause your anus to fall off. That’s asshole for all you toilet paper buyers out there. If that does happen, we will all know who bought too much toilet paper. The good news, no restaurants will have to close over that. Good luck to everyone, over these next days and weeks, or however long this will take, to get our lives back to some degree of normalcy.
