who decided that opening day should be on april 1?  hard to take any of this seriously...

... like the fact that the texas rangers are the only team that is filling their stadium at 100%.  every other team is at 50% capacity or less (Nats were going to let in 5K, out of a possible 42K, so ~12%).  yee-fuckin-haw.

Itís hard to take ďsportsĒ seriously in covid times... the competitions are all messed up.. inequitable

If there was a World Cup this year I would take it seriously but thatís it...thank god there isnít

It really is. I like sports as much as the next guy but there is a level of disengagement. My alma mater really choked away a Final Four spot earlier this week and I went "huh. oh well" and went to bed and people keep asking me how I'm doing about it and I'm honestly like "I haven't thought about it at all??"

Not going to any games for a few months, that's for sure.

I did enjoy watching opening day on TV though, as I had never seen this before.  Probably nearly 10,000 baseball games in my life....

Assuming you're fully vaccinated, why not?

Many reasons, but the main reason is because my wife is not vaccinated.  She's also young, fit, and healthy and does not work in a priority field so I don't see her getting her vaccination until mid-to-late May.

I see no sense risking it until the Angels come to the Bay Area, and that doesn't happen until Memorial Day Weekend, but then they come right back in mid-June so I'm more likely to wait and see until then.  There is a lot of science to be worked out, and while I feel completely confident that I won't be hospitalized, variants and transmission have yet to be determined.

Does that make you old, un-fit and un-healthy

Cool, makes perfect sense.

Yes, no, and no.  But more important to this conversation, I work in a field deemed essential.
