    Okay. I have anxiety and started watching these amazing marble races two years ago. Edit: They helped take my mind off anxious comcepts. They are amazing, and I’m so glad they’re finally getting their time to shine.

    Without being a dick or wanting to be chastised- COVID-19 is the best thing ever to have happen for people that are more hermit crab than human- Like me- I hate large crowds and get super anxious. Since VA opened back up (sort of) Ive been to my local amusement park and Zoo- You have to set up an arrival time and they only let in a set number of people at a time and made masks mandatory- But i have not been in several years due to the crowds- So i for one welcome "social distancing" its great. My heart does go out to all the people who lost family members due to COVID 19.

    I already know what this is. It's because of involuntary committal laws. There are no more white coats, buddies and they won't ever turn themselves in. It's a moot point. The last time there were white coat ambulances was before Nazi Germany. It doesn't matter if you know someone's crazy or not. They have a right to just leave or never show up. The few normal people can tell pretty quickly if someone's off there's just nothing we can do, and I've already turned myself in to resign to little symptoms. I see more symptoms in working-class people and people walking around but they have the rights to just reject treatment.

    Oh please. Stanford University has more wealth than 92 Nations. Again, the University is more wealthy than 92 series countries. They don't need football to maintain their wealth. They need football to give retards a diploma. Almost all US universities are so wealthy they could provide free tuition for their enrollees for the next 220 years before they even noticed a a drop in their back balance. Shame on Americans. Real men don't watch sports. They are too busy chopping wood to hear the house and hunting food for the kitchen table and to busy getting a bj from happily satisfied wives whom don't have to worry about their bills being paid.

    Professional sport, if we ignore the oxymoron of that phrase, it's still the most adolescent, inadequate masculinity presentation on Earth. I'm glad they are gone. I hope they never make a comeback.

    I think a lot of motorsports are still around. NASCAR drivers are driving without a crowd and with masks. Local rallies are still happening. And V8 Supercars are racing with small audiences, no masks and the social distancing stick for interviews

    AEW is testing every week along with temp checks. WWE doesnt allow talent or crowd members to wear masks. There is a reason why WWE is being ravaged right now and AEW isn't. Vince is an idiot.

    I don't know about the other sports, but Dana was right when he said your facts were "selective"...you didn't mention all the testing and safety precautions taken by the UFC during the events in Florida..and most importantly the fighter that had to withdraw from the event was diagnosed with Covid-19 thanks to the tests administered by the UFC and he was caught before he had a chance to infect anyone..so the system they had in place worked and it's still working with ZERO new cases at UFC events...so yeah "selective"

    Past two weeks finally WWE started testing because people did get Covid19 instead of just symptoms check and asking questions. AEW has always been testing . WWE and AEW have couples so yeah it effected things to be precautions when on gets it like Renee Young non wrestler but interviewer for WWE is the wife of former WWE wrestler now AEW John Moxly that the current AEW champion . I did think during recorded periods every few days I think WWE and AEW did do bubble league type thing. UFC did test that what stop that fighter from having the match. Some wrestlers are not even coming to recordings becuses of faer and precautions. Dana White already announced where Fight Island is it in the UAE in Aubdabi he said the testing many times testing before traveling then arriving UAE then time in the hotel then testing until before the match then they test after the match if okay they go home if any point before or after they get medical treatment if not serious quarantine if serious go to a hospital. The league's NBA, MLB, NFL , NHL, and so on do what to do the bubble thing. I didn't know about the marble thing. I unfortunately didn't watch this the orginal week this was posted and I don't have HBO and still debating if to get HBO Max financially to many streaming service and they get use because they offer orginal stuff or only place currently out of them to offer some movies and shows. Well John great job stay safe.Everyone stay safe to everything you can to reduce your chances of getting Covid19 if you unfortunately get it hope it not serious case you recover same with any other medical condition you may have you over come them.

      they are a team with a long and storied history in the marble league, and canonically they are the longest-running team in the league, having originated with an order of exceptionally round tibetan monks in the 2nd century c.e.

    In light of my earlier comment(s), how about a team called ‘The Masked Marbles’ Or marbles in stands socially distanced with little white dots on them to represent masks.... In my opinion the more masks that appear in comics and all other media, the better, I suppose it might be a bit much for those that would be in a position to decide, to dedicate one Sunday where every comic artist would agree to work some sort of a social distance and mask theme into that day’s strip. Somewhere in the archives there might be at least one strip that includes a ‘Peanuts’ character wearing a doctors mask. If not, would it be sacrilegious to pick an appropriate existing Peanuts strip and just add masks? Given the current Baseball issues, a ‘Peanuts’ baseball strip might work. Anywhooooo... Stay well...
