    2021 NBA: Ongoing Covid-19 Impact

    Their was blow back when congress got them - imagine the videos of Lebron or Giannis getting vaccines and if 80 or 90% agreed - it’s a plus, not a minus from a PR standpoint if it’s done right. I simply do not understand the hesitancy. A huge part of the population that is hesitant are portions...

    2021 NBA: Ongoing Covid-19 Impact

    Vaccinate the players already WTF Get over your fear of being criticized, Adam - get it done through whatever channels you need to take. Get your statement/approach done already. Pretty simple - the players and coaches, etc are a very small number yet the travel and contact they have is...

    Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely for Substance Violation (Again)

    I’m sure if I had a job I would have tried to go to work but by October 2004, I was unemployed and thoroughly unemployable. Not to be too graphic but crack, alcohol, opiates (Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin etc.) are not a recipe for sanity. Lost everything except my wife. No car, arrests...

    Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely for Substance Violation (Again)

    As we all are. Addiction is an awful dilemma for us who are addicts. Our minds tell us we must get back to paying the bills, supporting the family and doing what many of us were unable to do during active addiction. But if we rush into that and don’t put the program first, we are “DOOMED“...

    Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely for Substance Violation (Again)

    For an addict ONE beer leads to multiple uses of everything. One is too many a thousand never enough. Again might sound like a platitude but in my experience and what I’ve seen from others it’s 100% true if one is an addict.

    Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely for Substance Violation (Again)

    I didn’t work for 26 months except for one 5 month stretch. I had to understand that staying clean had to come first. Sure Josh could play football and work a program of recovery but he hasn’t. Getting suspended isn’t the reason he hasn’t stayed clean. We MUST fit our lives around recovery, not...

    Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely for Substance Violation (Again)

    I’m 16 years clean. Without total surrender to the fellowship I ended up in on or about November 10th or 15th, 2004 I would have never stopped using. I only ended up there because I was arrested and lost absolutely everything that mattered to me. If I separate from that program I will use again...

    Jason Varitek tests positive for Covid-19

    Of course it’s real, Lex But the self-justification can be nauseating. My wife messed up and had tea with her neighbor a few months ago and then realized it wasn’t smart. We adopted two kittens on Friday and it was harrowing going in to get them. Under 15 minutes and then a couple of quick...

    Jason Varitek tests positive for Covid-19

    Exactly / I have a fairly good friend - a woman in recovery clean 25+ years in her mid 40’s who is as accomplished a person as I know in this world who is apolitical, smart, etc. She’s done only on-line meetings since the pandemic started and yet today’s she’s having lunch with 2 other woman in...

    Jason Varitek tests positive for Covid-19

    On a different board that had a thread about people who got Covid post Spring I asked generally what protocols the infected people were following. Of the 15 or 20 who had posted as getting the virus, none of them chose to address my post / but I did get a number of “likes” from other board members.
