    @ My Two Cents: I totally agree with you. Dropping all school and team mascot names would make sports—and life—a lot more boring.

    @?, Kung Flu is meant to divide and shed any responsibility of the poor handling this administration has done with the pandemic. By your logic with the Apache logo, we need to rid teams of all mascots and just call them by their names aka Washington Football Team.

    Why not just elect Biden? Then we can let China tell us when it’s safe to re-open. But please, no more whining and crying about what you imagine “Bad Orange Man Trump” is doing.
    Grow a spine and please, Libzombies, don’t horde all the tissue in Novemeber.

    @ Kongflu: I’m sorry I didn’t pick up on your parody there. I appreciate your follow-up post.

    @ Tim: Stuff happens. You are aware that other commenters on this website have said the same thing and actually meant it.
    We also have a president who has sometimes made what sounded like serious remarks, only to contradict himself later and claim that he was joking or being sarcastic. He has added a considerable amount of confusion to our public discourse, which has made things more difficult.
    From T. Peterson: I was just surprised it went over your head. I thought it was Captain Obvious. You’re usually quicker than that.

    Their name is cool and i don’t think he called it the Kung Flu but that’s funny too.

    The Arcadia Apache’s think their mascot name is super cool but the students hate Trump calling Covid the Kung Flu. Double standard hypocrites?

    That is what the president is advocating. He runs this country and wants this country open. Now you know how dumb he sounds and his press secretary making excuses for him on a daily basis. P.S. and also Kongflu is unacceptable, but some people are alright with it.

    @ Kongflu: So, you’d be OK with a coronavirus death toll of 3.4 million people in the United States? That number is approximately one per cent of our country’s population. I just wanted to give everyone an idea of how many deaths you’re talking about.
    Do you really believe this would be an acceptable toll? That’s all I have to say.
    From T. Peterson: You seriously missed that sarcasm? Really?

    They should play and kids should go back to school. We are only going to lose 1% of the players and kids, this the economy will be back up and running.

    Any word on the number of fans that will be admitted to these UCLA and USC games?
    From T. Peterson: I seriously doubt there will be fans and at this point we don’t even know if there will be a season. The PAC 12 released the schedule but everything is still up in the air.
