Taters

Someone sneezed on the subway! I know, why don’t we chuck in this rat-race in the city and move to the sticks to grow our own food? How hard could it be, really? If we can write javascript add-ons for social media pages, we’re certainly smarter and more resourceful than some dopey farmer. All we need is an angel investor to buy us a small county in flyover country, purchase more rolling machinery than any European military currently fields, and most importantly, we need a website!

Let’s start with the website. It’s raining out.

We Shouldn’t Sit in the Stands Anymore

We Shouldn’t Sit in the Stands Anymore


We’re all currently busy not sitting in the stands. Everything sport-like is closed down. I heartily approve, but not as a temporary measure. They’re thinking of having the NFL play in empty stadiums so you can watch it on TV and sneeze at home. But your couch is just the stands. We should refuse to go back to the stands, period.

These fellows in the video aren’t watching racing. They’re racing. Hell, even quarantined kids racing on their gaming consoles are doing something, instead of just watching something. Everyone should build go karts if they can (it’s not that hard, I’ve done it), and race them. We should all play baseball with our neighbors again. Amateur sports shouldn’t pay. All the ringers should be sent home from college, to let students play against each other again. Drafting college kids to play professional sports should be banned. Let pros fend for themselves.

Let’s do things, not watch things. We did it before. We can do it again.
