This morning, I woke up and I turned on the TV. On CBS, I was shocked to see a college basketball game being played. Thinking that maybe these were two teams who were playing in defiance to the cancellation of their season, I then saw that the stands were full of cheering fans.
“Are they crazy!?” I thought. Usually, I’ll defend college students against the argument that they’re all entitled and irresponsible but considering what’s going on in the world, this seemed like peak entitlement….
Just as I was reaching total outrage, I realized that I was watching an old game. CBS is currently showing a Michigan State/Wisconsin game from 2015. I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of this. With so many big sporting events being cancelled and so many tv shows and movies suspending publication because of the Wuhan Virus, I imagine a lot of networks will be turning towards the archives.
What a time! Last week, around this time, Lisa & I were on an airplane flying back to the U.S. after spending two weeks in the UK and France. That seems like a year ago.
Right now, due to the Wuhan Virus, life is on hold in many places of the world. That’s certainly the case down here in Texas. I’m going to be working from home until at least the end of this month. Lisa’s office is going to be closed until at least April 13th.
I’m not panicking about the Wuhan Virus. I’m taking all the necessary precautions because that’s all you really can do. These are scary times but we’ll get through it. America is a much stronger country than a lot of people are willing to admit.
As for me, I got groceries, some peanut butter, to last a couple of days. No worries for me.
This ain’t no disco. This ain’t no fooling around. But we’ll survive.
