Unfortunately, there is no way to talk football (or any other sport at any level) OR entertainment without talking about COVID.... ask the Hill -Murray and Hermantown High School hockey teams.

depressing to see what we have turned into

I have a sneaking suspicion that there won’t be much in the way of legit statistical analysis on covid because it would reveal some unsavory things about our leaders and the directives and advice they

If we're going to track what is more/less now a common virus and cancel games for one player college sports will be a joke.  We used to glorify players for playing a game with the Flu (Jordan) and now

It is depressing. I just witnessed a guy walking alone outside my office wearing a mask. Not another person in sight. People have gone insane and the media fueled a lot of this.

40% of all ND residents have been fully or partial vaccinated. 

Let's keep testing teenagers and young adults so we can protect them from.......themselves.

I can't wait for the day we can get to zero positive cases and we can return to normal.

It almost appears that we can't move forward as a country until there are no more positive cases.

It is discouraging but hopeful the extreme wokeness and white shaming creates a new generation of free thinking, freedom fighting and liberty loving adults [of all races, colors, creeds, genders(man and woman)].

Lol, I was in an absolutely packed yoga class last night. The guy next to me had his mask next to his water bottle. Bro.

... almost no chance anyone connected to the football program would actually get sick, let alone die.  

Glad you qualified with "almost" ... I'm thinking about the head coach.

Haha. Nice to see you are living your life. The media would tell you that you are a goner because you were around other people.

The cold going around is a real < bleep >. I have it. I thought I'd caught "the ol' one-niner" but tested negative.

It starts out sinus, mimicking allergies, and then all the drainage makes your throat so messed up you start to cough and in my case I coughed myself a case of bronchitis that got infected. (My mucus had every shade of green from NMU to UND to NDSU to BSU.) 

It's almost as if people have been completely shielding their immune systems in a lockbox for the last year which has made it not as proficient as normal fighting off even basic viruses like colds..........

Sad. When I see something like that nowadays I find myself hoping that the guy is going to rob a bank.

Fat chance, folks like that are afraid of their own shadows.....

With a change to clarify state law recently, if you are licensed you can carry a firearm in a bank.

And you can also wear a mask. 

Strange times.

Mine has followed a similar path, less the bronchitis.

I felt the first drainage on March-flipping-22! And I'm on a daily multivitamin, plus extra D and zinc, and Airborne (can't hurt even if too late). Just when I think I've beat it the next day I'm fatigued. I ended up not able to control the cough, going to the doctor, and with a Z-pack yesterday. 

So yes, I believe we've done more harm than good with the isolating. Our immune systems are out of shape. (And I don't believe sucking air through a damp mask did my bronchitis any good.)

But don't you dare enter a nursing home while healthy, where everyone has been fully vaccinated for over a month.

OK I see what you’re saying.  

but if that’s going to be the approach, what is the endgame?  Will they ever open up nursing homes entirely again, for example?  Just today I got word that they’re shutting down the nursing home where my father is because one staff member tested positive this morning. 
so it’s a Happy effing Easter to anyone who wanted to go visit their family member on Sunday

Have the residents of the nursing home been vaccinated yet?  I would assume at this point they have since they were at the front of the line.  If they've been vaccinated why is 1 amongst the staff putting them in lockdown?  What's the fricking point of the vaccination.

Came here because the USD v UNI game has been cancelled and wanted to find out what else has been cancelled.  I'm guessing we've played our last game of the season.  Contact tracing makes it impossible to pull these games off.  One contact trace and boom, shut 'er down.

Hit up a steam room or sauna. Rotate that with an ice bath or ice cold shower 3 times and you’re immune system will fire on all cylinders. And you’ll sleep like a baby.

I have a multi-head shower and a 110 gallon (off-peak electric) water heater. Trust me, I've tried the steam-it-out thing.

That's just it. We'd probably be over this Virus if we hadn't had all of the lockdowns. I worked through the whole pandemic, went to work everyday. My allergies are just as bad as they've ever been. Obviously, I got the Virus back at the end of October. No matter how careful you are, you eventually get exposed to it (one person brought it to work and exposed everyone). Now, I have both of my vaccines doses. There seems to be a lot of skepticism regarding the vaccine. I am mentally ready to move forward and get back to normal.

Yes, they had both rounds of shots completed in January.  None of it makes any sense.
