ohhhh bjj = brazilian jiu jitsu.

thought you were talking about some rasslin club or something. i was a little slow on the uptake there.

that’s bad azz man. good for you and your kids doing that together.

sitting through a three hour dance recital to watch your daughter do three or four numbers that last a grand total of 7 minutes is the absolute worst. fortunately only had to do that for a few years before she gave it up.


We dealt with that dance scene for a very short time. I will never forget the studio owner's face when we said none of our 3 girls wanted to dance. Do that math real quick... 3 girls x tuition + 4 and up costumes every year + competition money, + yadda yadda. I know a family that put 4 girls through that crap pre-k thru senior year. The amount of cash spent would have paid atleast 2 to 3 years of undergrad for sure. And when they talk about Dance Moms they ain't kiddin

Sorry to hijack the thread. It kinda went roundabout. You know how it is when you start talking about your kids.. 😁.. as you were.

Crazy parents ruin all sports.

Good summary...I have coached multiple levels of baseball and basketball for the last fifteen years and I can attest to that.  Also, coaches who do not control their players make for a poor experience.  I have witnessed multiple ejections, a pair of keys being thrown at a referee from the top row, multiple parent/coach and parent/administrator altercations on the court mid game and afterwards.   I also saw a coach physically wrestle one of his players mid court and remove him from a game.  Something about a basketball gym = pressure cooker.  
 
My 2 cents as a coach is that if you are fair with the kids and straight with the parents from the get-go, the experience to be had can be highly emotional at times but always positive for everyone involved in the end.  In youth sports my mantra that I preached to the kids was always, in this order:
1.) Have Fun
2.) Work Hard
3.) Learn to play the game the correct way
 
If you accomplish 2 and 3 with your players then #1 ALWAYS takes care of itself.  There is so much to be gained from youth sports.  My kids are out of the youth phase but I stay connected with it in various ways.  I'm so glad the kids are back in action.  I hope we can find a way to continue to make it happen throughout the rest of this mess.  
 
The high school level is more competitive and the gears change a bit towards that competitiveness.  But, I still get those kids who may not contribute too much on the diamond or the floor but they bring everything to the experience.  I coached a young man last year who moved into the district to live with a foster family.  He came from a very rough background.  He worked so hard and was so thankful to have a family with our team.  He would come up to me and the other coaches after practice every night to thank us and to tell us WE were doing a good job. He didn't see the floor much but he didn't care.   What he cared about was the family structure we gave him and the knowledge and security that we had his back no matter what, in the gym and out of it.  That is what sports can offer kids and it has nothing to do with the scoreboard or the highlight reel.   It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my time as a coach.

speaking of fed gov cheese..




as long as the feds give the cheese to hospitals and health systems to find as much rona as they can, and further incentivize attributing deaths to rona, this casedemic will continue indefinitely long after the epidemic is over.




 
they were going broke when they shut down their money makers
(the myriad of elective procedures, tests and scans)
 
mostly empty hospitals all across America and much of the staff laid off
but you wouldn't expect  that given the level of panic porn the 24/7 media dishes out

snagr,
Your school loosening up spectator restrictions yet?   Just got a letter that each athlete will be allowed 2 spectators in the stands for indoor sports now.  Now I will at least get to watch a few of my daughter's remaining volleyball games......
Chickenschyt wolfe of course had to wait until the last minute to veto the legislation and cause max. delays for the legislature to take it up to over ride it.  Our school said $crew it and with the denial of the stay for the lawsuit and now the legislation that will most likely over ride the veto, they went ahead with allowing at least parents in to watch their kids.  Glad they did cause if they would wait for the legislation, we would miss the entire vball season. 
Last week a couple Allegheny Co. districts already went that route.  I know Avonworth SD gave two bracelets to each athlete and those were "tickets" into all future home games.

no changes for us yet.  our board is usually the last to do anything in butler county.  buncha cowards when it has come to dealing with rona, and our superintendent is supposedly a huge germaphobe.  
 
couple districts around us have opened things up - some like yours, some pretty much wide open.   
 
did have a bit of a compromise though to allow parents in to watch football at least.  marching band did their show at like 5 or 5:30 PM, so band parents could come watch that, then the band and parents all left the stadium so that it was just the football teams and cheer leaders for the games, allowing more of their parents in.  
 
butler county is staying somewhat warm with the cases cause they're doing a bunch of meaningless testing of asymptomatic kids at slippery rock university, which is one of the only public schools i'm aware of that actually has in person classes right now and students on campus.  sru has contributed about 90% of the county total in the past 3 weeks.  nobody's actually sick, just adding to the casedemic even though the epidemic is long over
 
butler hosptial, which has kind of been the barometer of what's really going on here all along, as of yesterday had one patient with a + test and nobody in the icu.

Have to give them an A for effort but a D for the lack of safety harness and not having the bar down in front of them...(if that stand has/had one)!

Also too, at a Walmart yesterday, (😁) we was shoppin for stuff and when we entered the store, it wasn't difficult for even me to notice the yellow barrier tape was gone, and folks was entering through the 'once-upon-a-time' EXIT ONLY aaaand exiting 😮 through the ENTRANCE ONLY doors. Heck, everybody knows that SOP for us deplorrables so I sez to my self.... self 🥴, things look to be getting back to normal around these parts.

Too also, upon entering through the 'once-upon-a-time EXIT ONLY door (cause the yellow barrier tape is now gone) I couldn't help notice no hand wash stuff, no hand wipes, and the ”head counting” dude was gone too.

Even more mystery, the ”you're going the wrong way floor stickers” were no longer between the aisles.

Also couldn't help notice a mix of mask/no mask shoppers.

chumps is a good descriptor.  people in pa don't like it when you mess with high school sports, and i'm sure many of these politicians will pay with their careers.  
 
this specific issue is entirely 100% political at this point.  there is no data or science anywhere in the world that supports this type of restriction in spaces where people can be spaced out. especially outside in a football stadium.  
 
wolf is doing his best to inflict maximum misery and angst upon the citizens of pa.

finally opening things up as of yesterday.

430 tix for football, band and cheerleaders. 145 for the visitors.

2 tix for each home and away player for high school volleyball.

2 tix for each home player for middle school girls basketball.

no restrictions for soccer, golf, tennis, or cross
country because they’d never come close to outdoor capacity limits anyway

Yep, same here which seems very reasonable and the live streams are great.  We are not getting away tix yet but hopefully that will change.  
 
As a follow up, my daughter's test was negative for Covid and took 4 days to get back.

Good news ldd on your daughter. 
 
 
All us parents were asking for was reasonable restrictions for sports.  No reason this limited approach couldn't have happened from the start of the seasons, except for dear guvners power issues......
 
Stores, restaurants, etc. All allowed more capacity in tighter confines than the school sports limitations offered.  The sports limitations were arbitrary and capricious.

Thanks all...
 
Over the weekend we got together with some old friends for a toned down "fest" that we have each fall.  One of my friends had it a couple months ago...her symptoms were like a head cold, loss of smell alerted her and everything cleared up within a week.  Another friend had a co-worker who contracted it and it laid him low for a week with residual breathing effects for three weeks.  Both were healthy and in their 40's.

I personally know two (good friends, husband and wife) late 40s
They had it months ago
she was actually the first documented case in my county.
It's presumed he had it and gave it to her
(him and three others in his shop all got sick with covid symptoms at same time)
wife got sick a few weeks later and got tested due to having MS and weakened immune system
 
Interestingly, HIS bout was worse than her's
She had a low grade fever  and felt fatigued for a day or two and that was about it
His took over  2 weeks  to get back to normal.
Started with fatigue then to  monster headaches and then it pounded him sick as dog for two days before he started to get better  ..which took another week
 
their 3 kids (19, 17 and 12) all at home never got so much as a sniffle
 
all are well and fine now
(same for the guys at his shop)
 
..L.T.A.

OK so- was going to my sons in upper Vt this weekend.
Tried making a T time at a nearby golf course and they wanted to know if I was from a GREEN area WHAT ??
 Ok to the putor for VT covis restrictions--- OOPPS - cant just up and go there anymore.
 
Gotta go to the State web site and do a form- gotta be from a Green area- see map- OOPS my part of Ct is a yellow area - cant just do the form and travel there.
 
OK OK gotta quarantine here in ct for 7 days and then get tested within a couple of days of the trip - if OK then do the form- carry the test results and then ya can go.
 
Didnt see any punitive stuff in Vt but in Mass and Ny they fine ya big bucks and ya gotta do the form and may be required to do 14 day quarantines if caught without doing all the hoop jumping. 
Vt does do the 14 day thingie if ya get caught.
Where - who monitors it- who pays for it????
 
I get why they are doing it but-
If they can get away with it for this they will find other ways to continue or do it again---

If that comes true I got nothing to worry about,  cause I can't catch no stupid fish.
