I Hate You, Coronavirus
The coronavirus finally broke me a little bit on Thursday. I am forever grateful that I have you, my dear readers, to talk me off of the ledge from all of this madness.
A few days ago I wrote that I might just turn this into a beer blog if the news kept being about nothing but THE PLAGUE. I was mostly, but not entirely, joking.
I woke up Thursday to a series of texts that ended up cancelling the trip I had scheduled to see my daughter and our family in Michigan.
An hour or so later, the NCAA issued a statement that cancelled all Division I winter and spring championships, thus ending my child’s collegiate athletic career.
She is heartbroken, which makes me hate the panic-mongers even more.
As you are all aware, I have been writing about being personally responsible while dealing with this coronavirus scare. I’m still in a self-induced quarantine because I may have been exposed to someone who had the virus two weeks ago. I’m all for being cautious.
Cancelling everything on Earth isn’t being cautious, it’s insane.
There is no end game to any of the cancellation madness. If there were, it would all make more sense. Put some metrics in place that would trigger the end of the postponements and cancellations. What we’ve seen in the last two days is all-out panic, which is never useful.
By the time Monday’s briefing rolls around there is a real possibility that most the public school districts in America will have cancelled classes for an indefinite period of time. This is madness.
Give us some parameters. Give us an end game. Let us know when the STAY AWAY FROM EVERYONE is supposed to stop.
That’s all we want.
As for the beer…
The Flagstaff stuff was disappointing. Flat and tired is the best way I can describe it.
The Citrazona is one of my favorites though. Just a hint of citrus in it, and it still packs a bit of a punch.
Have a great weekend, my friends.
