Don't be such a downer. This is a great chance for a Purell sponsorship. And maybe 3M corp could donate some of those good masks.

The tournament should still be fine assuming the weather warms up. Next fall might be worse. This was interesting to learn: Chinese scientists identify two strains of the coronavirus, indicating it’s already mutated at least once

KC loves a good party. Remember TKC, you're talking about the same town that still had whores on the street in the 60s giving all the tourists the syph. We're not really known for our temperance or precautions.

Our leaders, who can’t manage to get potholes fixed, are prepared for the coronavirus? What a joke.

^^^ Good point. Still waiting for them to completely fix that sink hole.

The coronavirus won't be coming to KCMO.
It's BOTH too boring and too dangerous.
It may be a virus, but it's not that stupid.

Lucas is lying. They aren't prepared. People will die because of these fools. And they should remember, they aren't immune to the virus just because they are in government office.

I am going to set up a booth to prevent the spread of the virus. For $10 I'll rub Purell on women's tits and tell them it is guaranteed to make sure they don't get the virus there. Just sayin, I love the TaTa's

Fearmongering: the action of deliberately arousing public fear or alarm about a particular issue.

That's what Tony is doing. It's childish and irresponsible. So you fuck right off.

Tony is alerting the public to the possibility. I know you ignorant anti vaxxers have it all covered and don't need to worry about it.

Anonymous said...

You'd have to be Super Dave-level retarded to not know the possibility. It's just stupidly wildly speculative clickbait.

Legitimate edia outlets are treating this responsible. But not here. But who ever said this shithole has any credibility.

The good news is it's mostly the geriatric fucktards who are dying from it. So this time next year, I'd expect the comments section on this blog to be a hell of a lot better! Fingers crossed!

Not to worry, the refs will call official times out whenever there are too many deceased players on the court. The kids who mop sweat off the floor whenever a player falls will have an additional duty, to pull the corpses off the playing surface.

What nonsense.

Stop the fearmongering? Do you know what site you're on?

TKC churns out daily stats and stories about murder, assaults, gun violence, and general mayhem. Illegals, violent minorities, weak prosecutors, and corrupt and inept public officials. Be afraid and don't go to Westport, P&L, the west side, Independence, KCK, and the even deteriorating Golden Ghetto.

This site runs are fear and loathing. Toughen up snowflake.

Read the news. Virus maybe serious. Iran released 56,000 inmates from its prisons to prevent coronavirus spread. Yes their hated and abused prisoners are free to go home, all of them, murderers included, political prisoners. I think this might be a killer virus. Cancel all sports.

It only has a 3.568% death rate. So only 3.568% of all March Madness attendees will die. The question is which ones? Players too- is it worth it?

Anonymous said...

With only a couple weeks until March Madness, most of the games will be played as scheduled, with the exception of the opening round in Spokane, Washington and we'll see about Sacramento and L.A.

UMKC basketball just cancelled their Saturday game in Seattle.

Royals opening day looks to be in doubt.
