    “Why?” season has started. Every time I go outside, I think to myself, “why the hell do I live here?”

    I’ll be inside in the air conditioning til October.

    I thought it would be a good idea to mow the grass at noon for some reason. Thought the same thing about 10 minutes in

    My dog looked like she wanted to die .25 miles into the walk I just took her on. She was sprinting to get to grass whenever she could.

    We took our kids to Honeymoon Island for my son's birthday. It was as busy as it normally would be on a 4th of July weekend. Just completely slammed. People really trying to make up for lost time!

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting that at all. A normal Sunday morning has maybe a quarter of the people at that beach.

    I played against him in HS. My brother and best friend played baseball with him. I still think he might be the best HS football player to come out of Tampa. He was a great HS QB but Spurrier only wanted him to play WR. Nebraska wanted him at QB.

    It’s too bad he got caught up in a lot of criminal activity post NFL from weed distribution, guns, and running illegal gambling games.

    Saw videos of most bars on snapchat location this weekend and seemed like everything was back to pre-covid normal, hopefully we don't get bunch of new infections soon.

    Apparently WHO says asymptomatic transmission is rare.

    CDC also says it doesn’t spread easily via contaminated surfaces.

    Have cases increased because of more testing or has the number of tests remained about the same? If it’s the latter then the higher number of positives is a concern.

    One soccer match in Italy was responsible for a massive spread of the virus, fuck going to something like that until it's really under control.

    The state says there are more confirmed cases due to more tests. Apparently the percentage of positives is declining

    Is there a chance I can attend FSU-bsu in Idaho to start the season?

    I gave up on having a cfb season, so never thought attending games was possible. Is that being talked about now? Obviously Idaho is a much different situation than Florida.

    Honestly, I think some of these small schools that rely more on ticket sales are more likely to push the issue

    Drove by the TGH Urgent Care place on Gandy on the way to lunch and the parking lot was beyond capacity. Maybe it's not covid related based on case numbers this week it's looking really bad.
