This year's NFL draft runs from April 23-25 and will be a somewhat more subdued ceremony than in recent years, in that teams will be drafting remotely. It'll still be on TV, (I assume; I mean ESPN has got to show something besides old Michael Jordan games, right?), and we'll
So far, it's been a very fine weekend.
As opposed to The Weeknd, who is a very fine Canadian kid.
We have spent today's social distancing getting the little things done around the house, to the point where there is no more anger in WineWife's eyes when she emerges from certain rooms
I'm not going to lie - even though I was prepared, the concept of "teaching from home" had both advantages & disadvantages that I have yet to fully measure.

This will be over in 10-15 days? It won't be over for months at least?

(btw, unless you're the sick one there is no point to wear
Hello once again and a happy Friday to my fellow shut ins. Hopefully you're all practicing good social distancing and keeping inside, except for essentials.

The league owners are having a conference call on Tuesday - in lieu of their cancelled Spring meetings - to debate & vote on the third wild-card game.

Well, we've survived another weekend. Life & society has, for the most part, adapted to the changes brought about. One of the larger microbreweries in Vancouver - Parallel 49 - has started making hand sanitizer from their excess ethyl alcohol during their beer production.
Due to a shortage of plastic bottles,
Well, my two weeks of Spring Break is almost over. There is a plan to have us "report to work" on Monday, but as of now no one knows what that will look like. We do know there won't be any students, and we are expected to retrieve our materials
As with many communities across the country, my locale has instituted martial law beginning 2 hours ago. Well, martial law might be an overstatement I suppose, but not by much. But according to them I'm not allowed to go anywhere. And I could be fined and/or jailed if I'm not
