As a kid starting to watch the game, Al was one of my favorite non-Sox players. He did everything really well.

Robert Kraft sends Pats plane to China to pick-up N-95 masks

In an extraordinary move, the Kraft family deployed the New England Patriots team plane to China to fetch more than one million desperately-needed N95 respirator masks used by front-line health care workers to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus, Governor Charlie Baker announced Thursday morning.

Robert Kraft personally purchased 300,000 N95 masks that he plans to provide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose state is an epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.

So do you agree or disagree?

Doesnt matter

As I have stated - looking forward is more beneficial. 

Do you have an opinion on what happened in the administration yesterday or today?

Kid has exhibited for now more than two decades a truly remarkable inability to learn from the past.

Why people expect him to draw rational conclusions now, seems a massive waste of time.

As to what the TA did yesterday is that Trump is now understanding the possibility of being called the greatest manslaughterer in US history (benefit of the doubt) because of his gross imcompetence, in labeling CV a hoax, a political ploy, and no worse than the flu, and it would magically disappear as the case load goes from 15 to 0. He was tragically wrong and incompetent.

He is now fashioning the fiction that if only 100,000 Amercians die he will be the Mother Theresa of all diseases and a savior.

He won't, He will be the new equivalent of Typhoid Donald.

Stay well people and stay at home.

Lets help beat this evil disease by not spreading it, and then let's remove the cancerous tumor in the White House and save our country.

The lieing motherfucker was too stupid to listen to his medical experts, fired the pandemic experts

and boasted like a fucking idiot that 15 CV victims would soon be 0

and then called it a hoax

and then a politcal ploy to tarnish him

and then it would just disappear in the sunshine

and praise be Jesus we could all celebrate and contaminate each other for Easter!

and now he is claiming if just 100,000 Americans die it will be a great victory.

Every time he opens his mouth he endangers us.

Damn him to hell

Trump wanted to ride it like a cowboy and bust that Chinese virus like a bronco.

Who knew we had Slim Pickens as President?


We'll meet again,

don't know where

don't know when

Gov. Cuomo (NY) has become the new FDR, and that is meant as the highest compliment, with his daily updates "fire-side chats.  He has shown leadership with his truth, no bullshit, but down to earth updates to keep people informed and comforted.

history will remember him well.

Mario would be proud.

Simply: the US Gov't failed to prepare and plan and protect.

Nothing we were to do in late January was stopping this thing.

It's about how it's handled now.

People are fucking dying.  It's sad as hell.  And disrupting.  And scary - in whatever way you get scared (little, lot or batshit nuts).  Many of those who get through it will need to keep talking, rehashing, etc.     Some will be total dicks.  Others will just move on.  And LIVE.

Good night.

kid you're half right, its about how we handle it now.

This is our blood sweat and tears moment. we all have to help in the ways we can to beat this fucking thing. For some that's just staying home and not helping spread this disease.

BUT you're wrong in that some pro-active leadership early on and being educated about pandemic diseases might blunted this curse early on.

Trump was ill prepared and overwhelmed by the science of the disease.

So he he called it a hoax, and a politcal ploy to make him look bad and made it a red/blue repub/dem issue.

its was a public health issue and the guy who does not believe in facts or science or sacrifice is in charge of an issue that can only be dealt with with facts and science and sacrifice and credible leadership. 

God help us and bless us.

To all Elbanese I hope you and your families are well.

Banks, for you:

Thanks Josh.

But i'm hoping that the our dear leader and con man in chief who hopes to get us back to work ASAP, and have the churches over-flowing by Easter, may find it in his heart to get Birx and Tony to work overtime and conquer CV, and ease restrictions by Passover.

Although to be safe for their congregants, pastors may want to take a lesson from the Old Testament, and mark their doorposts.

Always liked Hoyer. Once a Spartan, always a Spartan.

Or once a Patriot always a Patriot.

This is his 3rd time around.

So banks, you all rolling with Hoyer next year?

Absolutely. He knows the lay of the land and comes on the cheap.

I'm pretty sure BB went after him so Brady couldn't bring him to Tampa Bay.

I was priviledged to watch the best that ever was, at arguably the most demanding position in sport, for two decades.

How do you adequately thank the guy who brought you fun and so much excitement, so much joy, and so many championships.

He made my live better.

It sounds dumb but its true.

So thanks Tom you were special and you will be missed.

Thanks China.

MLB Commish Manfred was informed the source of Coronavirus  was Chinese bats.

I heard he will issue an executive order that only American bats made in the U-S-A will be authorized for official MLB baseball.

Listening to Trump give flawed and politically motivated medical/public health information from his gut made me sick.

The guy proves every day how fucking inept and dangerous he is.

I don’t watch HBO, but the show’s title seems made for my doggie. He was a little too nasty with the Kamster: the poor thing is too traumatized with Kanter, KP, K Trier, ... you name it.

I invented him; I can do what I want with him.

My doggie has NO MERCY 👹

PS. I’m very happy we have Mitch and Barrett.

Bank, of course fandom is not to be taken seriously, was just kidding. But your C’s allegiance still stinks 😉

A (Leon) Rose smells just as sweet.

And as The Beach Boys, IIRC a band out of the Bronx, once sang, "gotta be true to your school".

Speaking of fans who take this shit way too seriously, what's up with Spike? Is he pushing Do the Right Thing 2? Was he mad at single white Rose Dolan gave Knick fans yesterday?  My two scents it looked and smelled like a manufactured publicity stunt.

I'm glad Carl Funkhouser (RIP) was spared the additional pain.

Not gloating, but we beat the f'in Rockets!!!

Well ... actually GLOATING. Being the poor Knicks you gotta understand 😊

Carlos enjoy your gloat.

You watch HBO's Curb your enhusiasm?

thought of you guys after watching last night's episode

Thanks Bank, never thought I’d enjoy bantering with a C’s fan. Alas there’s no rivalry, so easy to be friendly now, and you seem to be a nice guy despite your unfortunate allegiance.

I don’t watch HBO, but the show’s title seems made for my doggie. He was a little too nasty with the Kamster: the poor thing is too traumatized with Kanter, KP, K Trier, ... you name it.

Carlos I try not to take it too seriously and find the laugh in it.

On Sunday night’s episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Larry David took aim at the Jets with several jokes about his beloved franchise. The episode centers around David’s friend Carl, who kills himself because of the team’s struggles.

“I can’t take any more disappointment,” the suicide note read, a couple of scenes after Carl is ranting about a fictitious season-ending Le’Veon Bell injury.

“The Jets killed Carl — and a little bit of the Knicks,” David said.

The tack on about the Knicks cracked me up.

Carl would have liked last night's game.

RIP Carl Funkhouser
