i bet pb loves this guy Posted by: alpine | April 02, 2020 at 04:23 PM I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. Please explain. Posted by: pb | April 03, 2020 at 03:06 PM pb/gocanes: as a sports blogger, i found you pretty decent . . . i could see a couple times why you might get on some of the bloggers nerves, but i never understood the big animus towards you ... particularly never understood the weirdly derogatory, throw-poop-at-your-face posts from OGV . . . and since i've been blogging, i've supported you in various ways, . . . including one shout-out to you-as-pb, before you came out of that particular telephone booth with your new cape on . . . but you've never responded to any posts from me, including that pb shout-out . . . and maybe you don't do that with anyone, and simply prefer lone ranger'ing it that's cool; blog on, as we say! - but politically it's different; the few times you've posted . . . well, keeping it simple: imo, if you look at the current f'd-up position the usa is in regarding the virus, and your understanding makes you point your finger at new york politicians . . . then imo, you're one of the "alternative reality" people, like kemp no hard feelings, but i'd prefer you not post politically, 'cause i tend to rise to the bait . . . and as several people on here have pointed out, such political leanings don't belong here capiche?
No live sports anywhere in the world, youth, college, adult, amateur and pro? Never conceived it Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | April 03, 2020 at 04:39 PM that's quite a statement and kind of sums up "it's a mad, mad world" the thing i find funny, is that it's less interesting to me to watch old sports (meaning: old canes' games; ain't never watched any other "old" sports stuff) when the present has NOTHING going on and the future is one gigantic question mark, than when there's a season happ'nin' i mean, if we're about to play FSU or VA tech, it's sometimes interesting to watch an old win beforehand . . . but now?
huh? it's never happened to me before, that when i refresh the page, i don't see my comment . . . hence the double post figured i'd clicked on the "for roach eyes" link before pressing "post"

Businesses you don't want to own right now: - anything in retail; lots going bellyup before 2021 sees the light of day - cruise-lines/-ships - anything to do with vacation packages, particularly in the 3rd world; gonna be a horrible slaughter in some of these places (india, SE asia, africa, central america, . . .)
Big Al, Kemp is very typical of a number of people born and raised here in Georgia ignorant to almost all science except agriculture. He is becoming less popular with his base with each day as he stumbles along. Posted by: solarcane | April 02, 2020 at 04:55 PM blind squirrelville
Rabies alert over, Gate open but lake/reservoir monitored. Went out to kayak fish again, feel more like Charlie Brown every day. Wildlife Officer" how are you doing today." Me "great officer" W.O. "you are aware there is a shelter in place order for the entire state right?" Me "if I said I was on my way to the grocery store would that help me?" W.O."let me give you hand getting your boat back in your truck" Posted by: solarcane | April 02, 2020 at 07:32 PM now that is the chuckle-buster of the day!!!!
i bet pb loves this guy Posted by: alpine | April 02, 2020 at 04:23 PM Posts like this gets U banned. Posted by: 86Cane | April 02, 2020 at 07:10 PM my hands are on the steering wheel, officer; don't shoot (. . . i'm assuming OGV has some really compromising photos of you)
solar; georgia boy i see your gov'na, mr. kemp, finally dialled up a statewide stay-at-home order . . . his reason being, he's “just finding out that this virus is now transmitting before people see signs.” huh?! . . . fauci (and many others) has/have been talking about asymptomatic transmission for over 2 months i bet pb loves this guy

- thank you solar - and congrats! . . . following you on this blog, you seem to have reached the place where you don't get pulled down into the mudfight; and yet, you retain your dignity & respect by being engaged and not covering ears, eyes & mouth . . . not an easy place to reach
Posted by: pb | March 30, 2020 at 07:32 AM that's right, pb . . . and luckily, our president was waaaay out in front of this thing after getting early intelligence in january on the coronavirus . . . otherwise, our whole country might be in trouble and not just those libtard new yorkers

And all you old farts out there stay home and be extra careful! Posted by: pb | March 29, 2020 at 05:59 AM don't light a match?

our buddies at U of F did something good: "A professor of anesthesiology at the University of Florida is building an open-source ventilator out of items consumers can buy from hardware stores as a way to meet the demand for ventilators since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, WCJB reported. The cost? Anywhere from $125 to $150." https://www.wftv.com/news/trending/coronavirus-university-florida-researchers-design-ventilator-hardware-store-items/EDSU53ZJPRCBDDG4OY23C5ID7E/?fbclid=IwAR1GzCFSAL3yiELwzlfwwRVFnntLddeZ-olxlok7-665YXmtmliE7682MTc

LeBron James upsets the number one High School team in the country The dunks and behind the back passes are epic at any level This ones for you Big Al https://youtu.be/2nC9z57MuaI Posted by: solarcane | March 26, 2020 at 12:09 PM CLASSIC, solar! appreciate it! . . . those are some grown-ass HS dudes out there! i wonder how many college teams they could have beaten 2 out of 3? - and a shoutout to dyson! . . . speaking of which: i got me one of their vacuum cleaners 4-5 yrs. ago and have been satisfied since (i've always been the "floor care" person in our household; having done a lot of janitoring beginning middle of high school and continuing thru the first few years of college, such chores always seemed pretty easy to me)

there are MANY more important things to worry about than sports, particularly at this moment in time . . . but i'm aware about the possibility of the next football season not happening until much later/not at all . . . and that would certainly not be helpful for what's shaping up to be an all-time shyt year
