    I am watching the Tigers-Pirates game and from the dugout shots I have seen, it doesn’t look like even 50% of the players on either team are masked up. Do they just not want to play?
  2. I was thinking about the microwaveable s’mores the other day. I was wondering if they had really existed or if I just imagined them. I have seen the Oreo candy bars at the local discount grocery outlet recently, but I don’t know if I have ever seen them in a regular grocery store. The mint ones were good.

    So they could have ordered their glass of milk or cup of coffee from room service? Instead, they chose to run amok in a pandemic.

    I find it hard to believe that the Marlins were staying in a hotel that didn’t have a restaurant or coffee shop onsite that the players couldn’t have availed themselves of. Or that there is not a concierge or team lackey that could make a milk run when someone has a yen for some dairy. If that is the case, maybe Derek needs to crack open his wallet and book his team into a better hotel than the Super-8 they must have been using. I want baseball, not excuses.

    The Tigers-Cardinals series that was supposed to start today as 2 games in Detroit, then 2 games in STL, then changed to four games in Detroit, has now been “postponed”. I have serious doubts that any of the postponed games across the league will ever be played. I think the odds of the season going all the way to the end are tanking.
  6. The link posted above from geo.tv doesn’t say anything new, but does use an expression I have never heard - (Harry) “felt like the gooseberry” when he would go on official outings with Will & Kate. Can anyone tell me where that comes from? I get the idea, that he felt like a third wheel, but are gooseberries an unnecessary fruit or some such thing?
  7. Goat’s Milk soap is a Godsend in these days of seemingly nonstop hand washing. Try it, if you haven’t already. Vienna HHer reminded me of someone, but couldn’t figure out who. I’m thinking maybe a former child actor.
  8. When parents on House Hunters say the have “3 amazing children”, I always tell them that their kids are average, at best. Sure, they can’t hear me, but I feel better.
  9. Was Elizabeth’s father known as Prince Albert? Why did the prince change his name when he became king? Is it by choice or some weird rule? What would be so terrible with a King Albert? Soo many questions.

    I thought the base coaches were supposed to be masked, but in yesterday’s Reds - Tigers game the Reds first base coach wasn’t wearing one. I hope that if this first week doesn’t wreck the season, things will get better. Hopefully this mess will scare everyone into following the protocols to the extreme. Regarding the NBA bubble vs. MLB’s non-bubble, how many players are on an NBA roster? I feel like having 5-10 baseball teams, including support staff, would entail far more people. If they would have to be scattered at various hotels, wouldn’t that defeat the idea of “bubbling”?

    Are you sure Larry King isn’t a real-life cardboard cutout?
  12. You have actual people who will pump your gas for you?!? I have been a licensed driver for damn near 40 years (Holy shit! Now I feel old.) and I have never been to a gas station where I didn’t have to pump it myself.
  13. I saw the episode last night of the redo for the man with MS. I knew from the start that they weren't going to move and I suspect there was never even a thought of moving. You don’t pour $150,000 (or whatever it was) into making a house wheelchair friendly with the idea of selling it. The couple was making that into a forever home. Or at least for as long as it met his physical needs.

    Today’s paper had an article that outlined some of the new rules for teams social distancing behaviors. “No members of the travel party may eat in any restaurants in or outside the hotel.” ”Buffet spreads are prohibited and communal dining is discouraged.” So, I guess dining alone in one’s room at the hotel and properly distanced picnics in the outfield are the only options? I knew a sixty game schedule was short, but seeing it broken down to only 10 games against each division rival makes it sound really short, to me. Have to confess, I really want to see the new extra-inning thing. But there should be a limit, say 12 innings. If you can’t score one more run, with a runner on second, after that many innings, maybe a home run derby is in order?
  15. I am a Costco member, but my mother is not. Would I be able purchase hearing aids for her? Because having to repeat myself multiple times is making me very stressed out. Very. Stressed. As in, I was disappointed that my dental checkup last Monday showed no problems, because I was looking forward to an hour or so of nitrous oxide. I am not a drinker, but if there was a laughing gas bar nearby, I would be a regular customer.
