Honestly, i think the most depressing jobs in Detroit right now must be Pistons or Tigers ticket sales agents.
Portland is the last NBA team to allow fans; 10%, starting tomorrow.

I've been to one Timbers game (a win over Houston; suck it, RT!). Fully vaxed and in a socially-distanced 25% capacity outdoor stadium. Felt good, but weird. Stupid vax sceptics are going to delay full stadiums.

Cool. But I meant the Tigers and Pistons suck so hard they don't have to mandate 25% max capacity. They were getting that before lockdown.

Half season. Not sure what I can do to shake them. Liberty? I am a Rangers fan so couldn't think of even teasing a face painted in NJ Devils Red and Green

You forgot the Red Wings. Great arena, and got to see Henrik Lundvist's last shutout there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20M5sYq1edc

Yeah the question is what do you do when the 25 seconds is up and you can't sleep. Oakland v. Seattle until 1 AM FTW.

Not sure if you heard but in NY, vaxed people are going to get their own sections at baseball games at 100% capacity but people who aren't vaxed sitting in a different section at 33% capacity.

A bonehead idea.

It's like saying if you're vaxed, you get these cool seats 4 in a row in the back of the packed 737 Max but if you aren't you get the lie-flat seats in 1st on a 787.

Yankee Stadium? Back in the olden days when the Tigers played baseball, we were in a playoffs vs. the Yankees a few times. I'd go on Stubhub and get seats right behind home. It was all corporate owned and for sale. Probably 30% full. That stadium f'ed the Yankees.

Joe Lewis? Torn down. Little Caesar's Arena now. Amazing how much money you can make selling shit pizza. Sally's should be the one owning arenas and advertising on TV.

I went to both. Most recently was Little Caesar's on 2/1/20. My son convinced me to go for the Rangers v Detroit. I scanned and tickets were cheap as was the direct flight (7500 miles each way). Included a trip to Buddy's.

Turns out it was the weekend of the superbowl. I have never seen a terminal so empty as the AA section of DTW on Super Bowl Sunday.

Ahh back in the day of flying. That was the next to last flight I have taken.

"a win over Houston" could be pretty much anyone this year....

Maybe the free video on youporn.

"Sex party" sounds great in theory. But I don't imagine, even with models all over the place, it's amazing IRL.

Bunch of dudes getting wanked and blown on couches? Nah.

"Exclusively female sex party," OTOH...

And you can get most of that for free for the price of a ticket to South Beach. Sure, there's no bottomless, but do I dare say it -- you don't want the bottomless beach.

Because the bottomless beach attracts the freak crowd. Nobody wants to see those piercings, or be approached.

Re: Objectively intelligent.

So for a long while Bree Daniels has been a fave porn star. She’s purdy!

But a bit ago I watched Klute for the first time in decades. She is up there with Tyrone Slothrup and Hank Chinaski (but with better tits). Honestly all that and a brain.

Re: Objectively intelligent.

It sounds like Pony may be representing the Q Shaman in his spare time:

“A lot of these defendants — and I’m going to use this colloquial term, perhaps disrespectfully — but they’re all fucking short-bus people,” Watkins told TPM. “These are people with brain damage, they’re fucking retarded, they’re on the goddamn spectrum.”

“But they’re our brothers, our sisters, our neighbors, our coworkers — they’re part of our country. These aren’t bad people, they don’t have prior criminal history. Fuck, they were subjected to four-plus years of goddamn propaganda the likes of which the world has not seen since fucking Hitler.”
