  1. No. If there is an afterlife, both James Buchanan and Andrew Johnson are grateful for Trump making them look good....
  2. For players as well? I wasn't aware of that. I'd still ave to guess that the PA would get involved if one of their players refused the vaccine and was suspended as a result.
  3. Covid is indeed a bit of a special case, but I agree with @Fanuck....the medical profession has never balked at treating self-inflicted ailments and I don't see them starting now...even if I agree that some folks might deserve to be refused treatment....
  4. It seems like a no-brainer that teams would just make vaccination as requirement. My guess is that the PA has something to say about it and that's why there is no player mandate.
  5. Must have gotten ahold of the ted Cruz playbook....
  6. "Feel at risk"? What does that mean? As far as I can tell, every anti-vaxxer "feels at risk", (or claims to) which is a big reason we're in the mess we're in. The information is out there. Vaccines are safe and effective and it's time to stop coddling people who are looking for excuses to justify their nonsensical stand, which is far less about safety than it is some ill-conceived idea of "personal freedom" and "sticking it to the man"....
  7. My former Electrical Instructor and friend is from New Zealand....I remember being very concerned for his family back in 2011 when about 180 people were killed by an earthquake in the Christchurch area.... At the time, all I knew was that he was from NZ....luckily for him and his family, they're North Islanders (Auckland / Hamilton area) and everyone was fine.
  8. @Canuck Surfer @Ilunga I understand an earthquake has hit in your part of the world. Hope everything is okay brothers...
  9. ....and the plot thickens between the Jays and the Rays... Anyone who watched last night's game saw Kevin Kiermayer inexplicably run through a stop sign at third and get gunned out by Teo at home in the 6th inning. What we all missed at the time was the fact that a data card was dislodged from Alejandro Kirk's wrist band by KK when he slid in. Kirk didn't notice, but Kiermayer picked up the card and took it back to the dugout. When the Jays realized what had happened, they sent a bat boy over to the Rays dugout to ask for the card back.....he was turned down and accordi
  10. I remember a while back one of the anti-Trudeau crowd here was somewhat gleefully posting videos of anti-vax idiots screaming and swearing at Truedau during a campaign stop... At the time, both Bishop and myself opined that those kinds of antics were more likely to help JTs cause, rather than hurt it. Looks like that was indeed the case....
  11. In the last few days leading up to Election day, I was bombarded hourly with ads from the Conservatives.... In every one of them, the only thing they had was "Trudeau promised not to call an election during the pandemic" and then cut to a video clip where he "promises" nothing..... That's it. Nothing about the pandemic, CERB, charities......
  12. Looks like I'm not the only one who thought that Kulpa was brutal last night.....and not brutal both ways.... https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/mlb/blue-jays-fans-outraged-over-umpires-brutal-calls-in-costly-loss-to-rays/ar-AAOFw69?li=AAggFp5
  13. Yep. Who cares if it cost a titanic amount of money....
  14. Good on him....I guess.... Personally, I think the NHL should retire that number.....even if Orr is a Trump fan, he's still the GOAT...
  15. I was thinking he'd get cut by the Cons and then get picked up by the PPC.... Then Bo-Bandy and Mad Max join forces to become the most hated tag team since Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik....
  16. Coxe v Probie was the first thing that popped into my mind, but I didn't have time to watch the vids and I'm not sure if it's the first or second.... The fact that CC went back for another go with Probert suggests to me that it's the right choice...
  17. Wow....you're sounding awfully defensive, bro.... Have you talked to the Canucks about a contract yet?
  18. Agreed. But those two ABs were only the last two incidents.... He was also squeezing Pearson, giving him nothing on the corners, or at the top of the zone. Then Chargois and Enns come in and all of a sudden, those same pitches are strikes.... I usually shake my head a bit when people blame the officials for a loss and as I said, it was sloppy play (especially wild pitches / passed balls) that were the biggest factors, but the Jays had a real opportunity to come back and some poor calls by the HP umpire made sure it didn't happen.
  19. Put it this way.....somewhere @Ryan Strome just cracked his 9th bottle of Lucky....
  20. This has long been a pet peeve of mine.... We file our taxes online. We can purchase a car or a house online. We can do just about anything online....in a secure manner.... Yet somehow in2021 we still look at voting by mail as some sort of progressive advancement in the electoral process.
