We're good, thanks for asking. Daughter is near Milan. Had to take their one year old to ER this morning with high fever. Hospital didn't test for Covid since he didn't have other symptoms. For me, that's problematic because the symptoms are all over the place, but northern Italy is at one of the ground zero hotspots in the world so they've been dealing with this for a while. Crazy world we live in. Docs think (from the blood draw) that the numbers look bacterial and probably strep. 

You guys stay healthy. My best to wifey. We sure could use some baseball to brighten the summer.

Haha, I remember taking my youngest there on a "just the 2 of us" vacay. It was a bit of a dump, but the Tribe won and we bought the requisite ballpark food and souvenirs, so we were quite content. How are you, Grateful?

Condolences to you and those involved, Weissbuc. What an awful story. I think that this pandemic has made us a bit kinder to each other, but there are always evil outliers. Hoping today was better. Stay safe, everyone.

Cruiser, glad to hear you're still with us. I appreciate and thank you for your service. Stay home, keep in touch, and let us know if you need anything. I am sure there will be a fellow Buckeye ready to lend a hand.

Good thoughts and prayers for your friend, Loud.

I had forgotten that you had someone in Spain, Major. It's kinda rough realizing that if a family member needs you, you probably can't get to them. Mr. Scar pointed out that if we have loved ones here who test positive, we are not going to be allowed any where near them either. So I guess in the long run, we are all in the same boat. Glad your son is hanging in there. Prayers and best wishes to you and him.

Stay safe, Linga. Thinking of you and your family. Hopefully you haven't come to blows yet. Getting kinda testy around my home today. Cabin fever, methinks.

Take care of yourself, IP. Where are you?  My daughter is in Varese, northwest of Milan.

Cameron Mitchell was on CNBC yesterday explaining that just a few of weeks ago, he was in front of shareholders discussing how great of a quarter they were having, and two weeks later, everything has come to a screeching halt as restaurants closed. In his case, 4,000 people were sent home, and he is donating 100 percent proceeds of gift cards sold through the end of March to his employees. Big or small business, this is devastating to a lot of folks. So I agree with Major. Buying a couple of gift cards won't change the world, but maybe those of us who still have paychecks coming in can do a little something to help. Buy a bag of groceries, pick up a neighbor's prescriptions, or buy a couple of gift cards.

Thanks, Grateful. Much appreciated. Stay well.

I had a naive approach to college athletes; i.e., hey, they get their education paid for and an opportunity to hone their craft for the next level, so that should be enough, right? I guess I've grown up. College football and college basketball = Big Business and Big Money. Why are there only five sports that don't permit immediate eligibility? M-O-N-E-Y. So it's fine for the striker on the soccer team to transfer, but the right winger on the hockey team can't without jumping through a bunch of hoops and sitting out a year? The genie is out of the bottle, so it's up to the grownups to make it work. Maybe go with the rules already in place for the other collegiate sports. Coaches can wring their hands and argue that it will make their jobs even tougher, but when you have the Mel Tuckers of the world skipping town IN FEBRUARY for a huge payday, then it's difficult to argue against the kids transferring with a straight face.

So very sorry for your loss, Scott. Glad David was able to watch one last victory over that team up north. There are lots of caring folks here to keep you in their thoughts and prayers.

I watched Hafley's speech a week ago at the college football awards show. Very heartfelt, tears in his eyes as he talked about how hard it was moving his family and bouncing around all of the time. How he wanted to make a difference in young men's lives and that he was so thrilled to be at a place like Ohio State.  I believe he was sincere, but less than a week later he's moving on.  We just never know what is going to motivate a coach to leave. Money, for sure, but also the institution, the part of the country where it is located, and the opportunity it presents.
