Seeing this months later, since I finally stopped being in denial and thinking as _retarded_ as some _conservative_ pricks and *"truthers"* do about the realities of the virus as the summer began, I finally let go my third-party vote that worked against ones which actually had a chance to fucking win and finally gave in to the fullness of my inner left, casting aside wishy-washy centrism; not like our country has humane democratic options enough to give centrism an honest shot anyhow, or technically they're almost all centrist comprisers attempting to appeal to as many voters as possible, depending on your POV, and I wouldn't elaborate so much on this point most places except for a show like this, even though *_"PoLiTiCs wErEn'T meNtiOnEd mUcH iN ThiS EpiSodE;"_* and in light of the pleasantness of seeing this knowing that many leagues restarted handily by now, I have to say that while their methods and execution were rather lax at times, especially about fans-in-the-stands, and they occasionally paid for it with a few drivers occasionally testing positive and missing races, I still super fucking appreciate NASCAR being one of the few to keep going really early on, improvise, have the originally intended number of events, and even take advantage of this opportunity not in an exploitative way, but to actually experiment handily with the schedule venue choices and timing, which honestly resulted in less left turns a few times and overall a lot more variety, setting the stage for even more progressive competitive decisions in that direction for next year's schedule where there will unironically be a fuck ton more of left *and* right turns; the most ideal it could have gone in a pandemic, to be honest.

In need of sports with no/little human contact needed, weirdly entertaining, and already built communities? Some major ones being fighting tournaments? I feel like this would’ve been an amazing time for smaller video game esports to come out and play with the big leagues. Lethal League, Them’s Fighting Herds, and others especially in the FGC.

John, I appreciate your support for alternatives, but you are clearly missing the record breaking season in the world of running. There have been races where each team is in a different city (and weather) as well as races on the open streets. New technology like the electronic and multicolor pacers. You've got to dive into that world.

liars ..deceivers .. Testing .... testing .... covid-19 contaminations ? WTF !!! The PCR-test is not a DIAGGNOSE for COVID-19 .....only just a starting poimt for further pathogen research. Another endless leftist war: war on covid-19 !!! Covid-19, like the flu, is never gone go away !! No lockdown will help ! 97% survive the covid-19 virus 90% of the PCR tests are false positives ! (a PCR test is NOT A DIAGNOSE for covid-19 .. ...only an indication for further lab research ... (look at the damn test prescription leaflet of the manufacturer) Covid-19 = NO PANDEMIC !! The covid hysteria is a massive delusion created by the wealthy elitists, self-proclaimed elites, who are gone profit from it, big time, making everybody else poor and dependent ....on a marxist universal basic income!! How many lockdowns do leftist idiots want to impose, before the economy, and with it, our health care system collapses. Covid-19 -being of the same corona family as the regular flu, is never gone go away !! No lockdown will help ! by the way: De CORRUPTE MEDIA (bought & paid for by the psychopathic elitists) covets up for DAVOS EVENT 201 in NY (oktober 2019) ! About Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019 bastards ! bring them to justice (Den Hague) for crimes against humanity !! ... fauci ....telling years in advance under obama that the next administration (i.e. the Trump administration) would be faced with a virus pandemic . ps: Federal Government and Yale Are Holding Clinical Trials on How Best to 'Persuade' Americans to Take COVID-19 Vaccines The options they are studying include shame and anger techniques: Other: Control message Other: Baseline message Other: Personal freedom message Other: Economic freedom message Other: Self-interest message Other: Community interest message Other: Economic benefit message Other: Guilt message Other: Embarrassment message Other: Anger message Other: Trust in science message Other: Not bravery message This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available. We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine -at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available (intervention & control) Study participants are recruited online by Lucid, which matches census based sampling in online recruitment. The government website even describes how to guilt someone into taking the vaccine. 1/15 of the people will be assigned to this message. The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease. And here is how they convince someone on the “trust in science” subgroup. bonus 2: Ein zwei drei ..polizei ....hitler on steroids !!!!

Rent-a-goat is actually a great idea: you own a herd of goats. People pay you to feed them their unwanted vegetation, so they’re cheap to maintain, and your customers get eco-friendly landscaping in the process. Nothing shocking about that...

Just want to thank you for highlighting Jelle's Marble Runs. It is fantastic and you really need to get Greg Woods, who announces the races, on your channel or at least get him to narrate something. That channel is one of the most creative things I've seen - maybe second to your show!

Wise Wolf Tony

The NFL is also very impressive I mean they have massive rosters like 7x as much as the NBA roster and that doesn't even include things like the practice squad and coaches. And then instead of a Bubble which would be next to impossible for football unless they drastically changed how the season is played. So instead of a Bubble these teams are having to travel sometimes across the entire country. And yet despite the huge rosters and travel the NFL has been getting by pretty well for all things considered. Yea I know a few games had to be postponed and moved to different dates while some teams schedules were changed. But that only happened for one short period. Other then that things have been running just fine. I mean MLB had much more trouble then the NFL. Despite having smaller rosters a shortened season no fans and only playing teams in your own region. Yet they had plenty of teams have to shutdown for weeks or days due to outbreaks. Sure it hasn't been perfect plenty of players and coaches have gotten it but they have been able to avoid anything major. Which as a Dolphins fan I couldn't be happier that the season is going on. As were actually playing good football for the first time in ages. And seem to have a franchise QB for the first time since Marino in Tua.

The BEST 'sport' that was recently broadcast on ESPN was something called Cornhole and apparently they are an organized sport with conferences and championships. I was losing it watching it on tv. If you go to you can see what I mean. If nothing else, I got a belly full of laughs during this pandemic when I watched it.

Since there's millions of Americans who have no interest in social distancing, why not just isolate the players who would prefer to play along with ten thousand volunteers and just forget about social distancing. If anyone gets sick take them to the hospital, but since most volunteers would be young and healthy, likely not many would. Yes this would mean that most teams would have to replace some players and their season would suffer. But all the teams would be in the same boat. Lots of guys in the rookie leagues would jump at the chance. And on the plus side, Fight Island would work! Once they'd all had it they'd build up the nations herd immunity too.. Frankly, this would work for universities and certain industries that are easy to quarantine --logging camps and migrant work crews are an obvious example. There would have to be stiff legal penalties for attempting to pressure any to volunteer as well as safeguards for the jobs of those who preferred not to risk it
