Housekeeping? There's your in, COVID.
Apparently they plan on testing all hotel staff daily as well.

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

The rules for the bubble look to be the most strict of any of the major sports returning to play. If they fail, it won’t be due to lack of planning.

People asking Black Lives Matter to show outrage over ‘Black crime’ says so much about their ignorance https://www.thestar.com/opinion/star-columnists/2018/07/11/people-asking-black-lives-matter-to-show-outrage-over-black-crime-says-so-much-about-their-ignorance.html Why asking black people about "b...

A lot of people are justifying his execution because he committed crimes in the past. Which is bonkers to me, and Chapelle put it nicely. Floyd wasn't chosen to be a hero, the cop that murdered him made him that hero of the time, and it had nothing to do with his past offenses. I don't think that i...

Umm... I’m not sure what you guys have been following, but Breonna Taylor’s image and her case have been everywhere. Theyre saying use her image as the poster child as opposed to George Floyd whom while he was indeed a victim, he was also not much of a role model. Neither of them chose to be a “rol...

Now is not the time to be like, "the big celebration [has] to happen at the same time as the legal wedding", imo.

Sure, that was the Before Times. There are something like 1,300 different rights and obligations that confer to each party upon marriage (things like automatic inheritance, tax benefits, etc), and maybe a global health crisis isn't the best timing to take a principled stand on 'weddings'.

Yeah. We had to reschedule our June wedding to July 2021. We rescheduled everything along with it including bachelor/bachelorette parties and shower.

That's true. It's better than nothing, I suppose. I also find it odd that their cut-off is 9 years old while the CDC says anyone under the age of 2. How did they land on 9 years old?

I'm of the opinion that in-person schooling is much more important at the K-12 levels than the college level. The majority of courses should translate easily to a virtual environment and the students should have enough self-discipline to take it seriously. Especially considering they're still paying...

I meant “intense” in a good way. It looks like the league and players are going to do everything possible to ensure there isn’t a breakout which forces a cancellation. The bubble will be as airtight as possible.

With 24 teams inside the bubble (at 52 people per team), that is 1,248 tests required daily for team personnel only. Add in all of the other levels and it is easy to imagine the NHL requiring upwards of 2,000 tests daily to begin the 24-team tournament. That is 20,000 tests in first 10 days alone. ...
