  1. Saw this in the news a while back. https://www.willistonherald.com/news/regional/north-dakota-universities-don-t-plan-on-requiring-covid-19-vaccine/article_ff4a2c6c-a116-11eb-863a-93dbd647d19b.html
  2. College sports and amateurism unlikely to survive in todays climate. These justices are distancing themselves from their predecessors, who recognized a need to exempt the NCAA. You can keep elevating the P5s and form smaller, tighter super leagues where athletes get some measure of their economic worth. But how does the whole house of cards not fall? Maybe the small handful of money making athletes at the small handful of money making schools will share with the rest to keep the rest of D1, all of D2/D3, and all of the non-revenue departments, teams, and schools afloat. You know, ou
  3. To honor its co-founders, Rect and Normous.
  4. And being coerced into taking a limited-authorization vaccine he wasn't personally prepared to take for the sole purpose of making other people feel better.
  5. No words to express how stupid it is to DQ Rahm for a "positive" COVID test at Muirfield. Dude has a 6-shot lead heading into Sunday. Is he even sick? Has anyone proven any correlation between a "positive" test and illness or contagiousness? Can he not play a solo round, or wear a mask? Golf is played OUTDOORS, FFS. A tainted tournament, and an asterisk due for the eventual runner-up. I mean, "winner." We're no closer to normal, sadly.
  6. Easily one of the best clutch players in recent memory. Seems like he's always on the ice - if not in the mix - for the game winners in OT.
  7. The Fargo CBS affiliate just pulled the plug on the PGA Championship with a hole to play in the third round. To show their pathetic newscast. Idiots.
  8. "The tree of libertydumpster fire must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrantsincendiary COVID posts in unrelated threads." - Thomas Jefferson
  9. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that any person who still cares enough to wear a mask voluntarily would choose not to work in a busy supermarket environment, handling items and currency that have been pawed and groped by rando members of the public standing inches away who now don't even need to wear masks. Who are we even pretending to protect from whom at this point?
  10. Getting paid not to work is indeed the smart move.
  11. Loyalty, nobility, and professionalism aside, not many of us would (or could) turn the blind eye to 2X+ salary and a spot in the bigs.
  12. Is it sacrilege to suggest that GF's survival of the flood was a Pyrrhic victory...that in celebrating the short-term recovery (itself a worthy achievement, and a tremendous source of civic and national pride), a mortal wound was ignored or overlooked?
  13. One could deduce that GF has been greatly hampered by the post-Cold War transition at the AFB. Nukes -> Tankers -> Drones(?)...no inside info here, but from the outside the scaling down of the base's mission has not been kind to the local economy. If they closed it altogether, would it even be felt at this point? During that same period, GF has endured cuts and austerity at UND, and more recently, a weak Canadian dollar. Recipe for disaster. Meanwhile, seems that everything keeps coming up aces for Fargo.
  14. If you read some of the articles in the Denver Post over the past couple of months, you may start to feel bad for MK because you will see that he really has been railroaded. A chorus of the usual, noisy minority of suspects on campus, and their hymn of 'diversity and equality above all' sung as a thin veil for 'my way is the only way and I've no tolerance for any other viewpoint.'
  15. How ironic...the hosting of NCAA championships was a big (but obviously not the only) carrot in the retirement of UND's nickname. Now, it may not even matter. A ban occasioned not by the Fighting Sioux, but rather the Fighting SiouXXY.
  16. Short-term hit, long-term gain. It happens in growing suburbs all the time. In a few years, they could all be contenders.
  17. I’m gonna buck the consensus and prevailing sentiment here and say that while rooting for St Cloud has its own merits, Duluth is the best (only?) choice in Pittsburgh. If UMD does not win it all, then the absolutely epic battle for the ages in Fargo Saturday night into Sunday morning will have been for naught. Love or hate the Bulldogs, how can UND fans possibly want any other outcome than having gone toe-to-toe for 6+ hours with the eventual NC? Nothing else will soothe that wound, IMHO. Besides, as most have noted, it keeps the title in the NCHC for yet another year.
  18. Tests, tests, tests... One year in, has anyone even mathematically correlated a positive test to sickness, severity of sickness, or contagiousness? What confirmatory test protocols are in place to rule out false positives? Have QA/QC standards been implemented to ensure test validity and technician competence? Are PCR cycle counts still a variable? Has the specificity or affinity of the test kits for specific pathogens been characterized with any certainty?
  19. It was Lou Bega, who gave us the unforgettable Mambo No. 5. Although, one could be forgiven for thinking of Suzanne Vega, but she's probably a two-hit wonder...Luka and Tom's Diner.
  20. Now THAT is a socially distanced tournament.
  21. The weight of expectation. Duluth, despite a hell of a run, still enjoys a little bit of anonymity (dwarfed by older cousin Goldie and next door superpower UND) and gets to be the perennial, ‘small school’ underdog.
  22. Will there be a seventh period stretch?
