    Here’s a sports story for you. PGA is one of the only things going on TV. What’s with that Bryson Dechampagne dude. I mean he looks like a cross between the Michelin Man and the Pillsbury Dough Boy. His body is like two giant scoops of ice cream with a cherry on top. I don’t think he made this body with Barry Bonds type steroids because his head is still tiny but somethings is very weird going on. He can drive the ball 400 yards now but I don’t think he is healthy. He waddles instead of walks now. Somethings up.

    @ Scary: God bless your nephew; I hope he recovers.
    It is quite scary. The ICU’s and hospitals throughout Texas will be overwhelmed if the coronavirus spike there continues at the present rate for much longer.

    Talked to my 23 year old nephew who lives outside of Houston. He tested positive for Covid and has bad symptoms. He was told to isolate and drink as much water as he can because staying hydrated seems to keep the virus at bay. Don’t bother to go to the local hospital because there are no beds or medics to care for you. Doc said “good luck”. Scary, this kid is the picture of health.
