Clay and Rovell kicked off summer (starts tonight at midnight) with a coronavirus tweetstorm you love to see on a Friday night when it’s blazing hot & you’re suckin’ down a bottle of Costco Golden Margarita on the patio and listening to Yacht Rock on Pandora. The big news out of this battle is that Rovell wants to come on the radio show to get body bagged and Clay’s perfectly fine with Rovell inviting himself.
I’ll let you decide who won this tweet-off, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last 2.5-3 months, it’s that some people need to get an ounce of positivity pumping through their veins. Rovell seems to be in a depressive state that’s worse than normal. It’s a great sign that he’s willing to come on the radio show where Clay can talk some sense into him.
Let’s get to the battle:
Players are more likely to die driving to and from practice than they are from the coronavirus, Darren. Sports fans who want to play sports are just looking at the data instead of buying into the fear porn the media serves them daily. https://t.co/TPdrXVX8vz
But one reason I took my sports gambling stock profits is to hedge against the Karen’s in sports media. Lots of players will test positive. Data tells us almost none of them will have any health issues at all. Europe, with far higher per capita death rates, is already playing.
No one is expendable, but all life can’t stop until there is a vaccine. (Especially since we may not have a reliable vaccine for years). They should assess their personal risk based on their current health & make intelligent decisions about the risk based on ample public data.
New York had more deaths today than any state in the country. New York and New Jersey combined were so incompetent in how they handled nursing home patients that the two states combined have nearly 40% of all deaths. https://t.co/Sg2788E9cq
And, guess what, when New York opens back up cases will increase. That’s inevitable. The virus isn’t going away. The hope is the state won’t keep sending sick people back into nursing homes this time.
Graph this: Population of Tennessee and Florida: 27 million. Deaths combined in the two states: 3622
Population of New York and New Jersey: 29 million. Deaths combined in the two states: 44,119 And Florida and Tennessee have been open for months already.
Combined deaths literally today, a date about which you are bragging: New York and New Jersey: 100, Florida and Tennessee: 49 https://t.co/Sg2788E9cq
Your argument is that New York and New Jersey are in better shape than Tennessee and Florida because they have already had over 40,000 more people die. That…is not a good argument.
Sounds good. Just shoot me a DM and we’ll get it scheduled.
