    Coronavirus

    I wonder what the birth rate for next January will be?
  2. Let's look into the future and see what the ER lounge will look like if the football season is canceled....
  3. 4th of July feels like a million years from now. I hear the virus damages the lungs. That's bad for everybody and for some or many of these athletes, it could be career ending.

    Thanks! I wish everybody to be safe and in good health. Remember...I was a pretty good troll at one time. Ask crav. Believe it or not, one of my main goals in life is grow and go towards being as good a man as I can be. As you know...I fall short at times. Like everybody, I have my strengths and weaknesses, so it seems that sainthood may not be my lot in life. So............ we're on Lock Down.... I guess this means I can't ride my bike in parks or on trails. It does say we can take short walks. I'm trying to stay isolated since Friday was my last day working and in public. Right now I feel good, but we'll see over the next week. The "Wait and See" is for all of us.

    Here's a good, positive read...sort of a "look ahead"..... https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/03/29/coronavirus-crisis-response-reshape-american-history/5079760002/

    Coronavirus

    I was furloughed Friday. The company hopes to be back up and running by June and they said they don't want to lose anybody. I filed for unemployment for the first time in my life. We're all in new waters. Everybody. Many in worse situations than mine because I can pay my bills. My heart goes out to them. I've been there too. Now the big wait for 5-14 days to see if I got dosed while I was working with crews in peoples homes. The worst part of that was that as each day came and more was revealed about this virus, my conscience bothered me more and more in thinking that I could be a carrier and infect others.....especially worried about the people who were most vulnerable with preexisting health conditions. I probably would not have shown up for work Monday morning after reading this:
  7. Yea...here's a little more on that.... Big maybe, yet training camp has a chance to happen. In the mean time, I'm glad that I have NFL Game Pass to watch all of last seasons games and from years past. You should get it. I love it. That may be enough to keep me out of a Psych Ward.
  8. They'll be furloughed and then become eligible for unemployment.
  9. As this pandemic escalates, I'm beginning to think Herbstreit is on to something here.... This was a possible Super Bowl window this year. Lamar and this offense was really coming on. It feels like the Colts leaving town. Yet I get it. There is way more important matters to deal with.

    I travel all over Maryland everyday and the streets are deserted. People are staying home and I think this will make the virus impact less severe and save a ton of lives. I love how Hogan is leading.
  11. He doesn't make many plays as a receiver, but on special teams he makes play after play. He's always around the ball and generally the first one there. He's one player who I think "Plays like a Raven." Nevertheless he will be fighting for a job this year.
  12. This off season reminds me of the 2000 off season. Selective FA signings. Ozzie did what was needed to open up their draft board and fill weaknesses. Signing Sam Adams and Sharpe allowed them to draft Jamal.

    Let's take a peek at papa this morning....

    Coronavirus

    Quarantine will bring change. People will evolve. People will adapt. They'll come up with new things to do. Just like this fine couple...

    Coronavirus

    No...I didn't mean stuff like food shopping, doctors visits....even walking outside is fine as long as you stay 6' away from people. Exercise is good. Plus people need to get fresh air after long periods of time in the house. It gives a huge mental boost. I saw families, the elderly and kids walking all over the neighborhoods yesterday as I traveled 5 counties and DC yesterday. We need to shut down like California, New York, Ohio. Make the streets as empty as possible and the chance of 10 or more gathering in public nil. That means only businesses with essential services for human life and heath remain open. This is Massive Change. Life as we knew it is gone. Nothing will be the same....yet take heart....just like this gorgeous spring that is enfolding around us, new life, a different life....new growth will unfold. We will come out of this better. Here's the lock down information and what we should do now. This could save a million or more lives in the US.
  16. I think he's on to something....

    California shut down. Everybody has to stay home. I think Maryland will follow suit by Monday. This must be done.
  18. All I get from this is that teams won't be able to run or throw on the Ravens. Defense, defense, defense. With it you can go into any stadium with a chance to win. The game is won in the trenches. The team with the most points wins the game. The team that surrenders the fewest points wins the game. It's that simple and the Ravens are looking to be that team on a consistent basis.
