    Vaccine arrived earlier than expected today. Arrived right 830am central time. We issued the first vaccine just after 2pm. This vaccine, given on a reservation, was done after a beautiful tribal ceremony welcoming the medicine to our world. The elder introduced the vaccine to our other medicines. We vaccinated the first person in the state of Minnesota at a remote hospital just outside of Bemidji. Today was an extremely emotional day. Tomorrow, I have will two staff members delivering vaccines to tribal nations throughout WI and MI via the USCG. What a time.

    I'm good. It was a bit rough but I'm pretty much 100% now. Definitely don't ever want to go though that again. Thanks for your concern.

    Had my second shot (Pfizer) on Saturday. Felt pretty good the rest of the day, and was almost bragging about “no second shot issues!” .... and then..... Sunday. About 24 hours after the shot, it snuck up on me. Extreme aches - not just in the shot arm, but whole body - every single joint. On and off headache and chills. And no energy... so, so tired. However, when I woke up this morning, back to normal (just the “regular” “old as dirt” aches & pains).

    Today I will oversee the first vaccinations at my facilities. The beginning of the end of this horrid pandemic.

    This is my daughter’s last official act as a producer with the Wieden Kennedy ad agency in Portland which handles the Nike account. Since she’s only been there two years she’s among the 33% companywide layoffs. She’s really proud of this ad and she has good reason to be.

    We went to Ford Field today and couldn’t have been more impressed. My son wasn’t having anything to do with a shot today. The poor national guard airman tried but there’s limits on what they can do. Wife and I were doing our best to contain him. The airman was so nice and gracious. Said he’s done this kind of thing for years. He called in the head doctor in charge and after trying a few more things the doctor asked if a bed would help. So he led us to a first aid room used during games and it worked. For my sons testosterone injections I have to lay on his chest end hold his arms down so they can get it into the leg. The doctor gave us his phone number and said to call him when we come back and he will arrange this again. We were so impressed with the hospitality. Not once did anyone blow us off. The check in lady saw my son and immediate said “would it help if you didn’t have to wait?” From them on we were taken care of. Well done FEMA and all the workers and volunteers or whoever they are.

    I usually don't venture into the political forum but I figured it was important enough to post my New York experience. I went back to the office in Manhattan for the first time since early March last Wednesday and encountered a sobering reality. People just don't give a ****. I'd say that about half weren't wearing masks and a portion of the mask wearers had it slid down under their chin (what's the point of wearing a mask in that case?). This is in a relatively sparsely populated Manhattan, what is going to happen once Phase 2 starts this week and thousands more flood into the city? This is in a democratic state, I can't imagine what it's like down south and in the midwest. This is the thing with 'Murica. Too many people care more about their personal freedoms than the greater good of the country. It sickens me how selfish this country is, a product of the "leadership" sadly. I mean, just look at that pathetic rally last night. I'm afraid that we'll see more lockdowns in the fall (when the virus will likely flare up again) because people are too damn stupid, selfish or just plain ignorant to practice very basic health guidelines for the betterment of our country, a minor inconvenience to put on a mask to protect your fellow humans. Funny enough, these are the same people who will complain when things get shut down again. I've never been more ashamed of our country to be quite honest.

    Thanks go out to everyone who helped.....I got a vaccination appointment for Wednesday. Kroger out in Canton. They also automatically set a 2nd appointment so it must not be the J&J vaccine. Although, if given a choice, I will pick it. But oh boy, a vaccination!

    I know most of you guys on this board will look at this guy as a racist. But it's all about states rights. In this case, he's making a statement that the power belongs with the states, not the federal government. So much so, that states should be able to invalidate other state powers when it comes to the outcome of what the federal government will look like. This is important because if the federal government has policies you don't like, you than would have to worry about how those policies affect your state's rights. Your state's rights affect how you live day to day more so than your federal rights. For instance, until his state can have full dominion over it's own laws, they can't get the economy back to the good old days of the pre-1860's. This guy may not even be able to ever own a slave if the federal ...... oh wait, nevermind. This guy is racist.

    a bunch of white dudes who think women should stay home are being overshadowed by a strong woman and they don't like that. It's a macho thing. She made tough decisions, got a lot of favorable press over it, and left them holding their dicks.

    Questioning a man like Donald Trump's motives is entirely rational. To not do that would be irrational. It's only pretzel logic to people wishing to be contrarian in an attempt to defend the president. There's going to be enough skepticism around this without him jumping in trying to push it through for the sole motive of electoral benefit rather than a health benefit. His history on this pandemic is quite clear that it's all been about how it affects him personally not us. There's no pretzel logic.

    Not true. It's another one of those myths put out there that it's somehow this agonizing decision which is only meant to shame women. I had an abortion and I didn't feel conflicted or remorseful or bad about it in any way. It was a pro life decision. Pro my life, pro my husband's life and pro my other children's lives (and I have an adopted child FWIW). I was the last person I ever thought would want or need an abortion, but that's how life goes sometimes. I was lucky to have the access, but so many other don't. The pandemic has exposed what a farce the "Pro Life" movement is

    On a more serious note, I love this young man, who every night plays Taps in front of the Veterans Home in Paramus NJ, where, to date, over 70 have died from the virus, my father being one of them. I will be forever grateful for his initiative in honoring the memories of these men and women, especially since none of us who lost family there were able to be with them, but also lifting the spirits of the veterans still at the home, who can hear him every night, and know they are not being forgotten. Thank you, Alex Saldana.

    It's really stunning to me that of all the crap we've seen.... this is the guy to take an issue with? Not Trump? Pence? Azar? Redfield? Atlas? All 5 of those guys were on record saying the most ridiculously wrong things but we go after the career servant who's spent his life helping people fight disease going back to the 80's with HIV/AIDS? The one with zero to gain? If Fauci wanted to gain attention he had plenty of opportunities to do this before COVID. He didn't just jump on the scene. He's an 80 year old guy working his *** off every day for us and he could have retired comfortably years ago.

    I gave blood today. First time in over 28 years, since my 18th birthday. I kept meaning to do it during the pandemic but the timing didn’t fit. When they took my temp with an oral thermometer I felt naked not having my mask on being inside and around other people for the 5-10 seconds it took. They do antibody testing but I doubt very much I had it. I never once experienced anything beyond a minor cough in March when it started and we all were paranoid. The nice thing at least is I am in the system again , have the app , and will be doing this again in Feb when I can and from thereafter. Make it a job. Something refreshing about being in a hotel ballroom around other people. Felt a little normal. It was in the Dearborn Inn. A real classy hotel. I used to meet colleagues staying there in the bar back in travel times as I live close by. We’d shoot pool, they would stagger to their room and I would make my way the 1/2 mile home. I am off for 2 weeks and want to do something every day for other people. Tomorrow I am going to shop for things for a food pantry.

    Update:my boss tested negative. Great news, as the odds that I’m negative are just about 99%. But, I’m getting the test anyway, and going to avoid family for this week. Just to be safe for all of us.

    The most common video of a "creepy Biden" video circulated by the "right" is with him hugging a little girl from behind and kissing her on the head. It's his granddaughter, Beau's daughter, at Beau's funeral. Tell me who the creepy ones are.

    Just got back from my first visit with my dad since March. Still can't enter the building since assisted living homes are still locked down. But they are allowing outdoor visits on the patio as long as you social distance and everyone has a mask on. Today is his birthday so it was nice to have a short visit.

    My father got his second shot at the VA yesterday with no reaction. He didn't complain much this time, probably because the spring weather makes him happy. He just didn't like the 15 minute wait after the shot. He thinks it is unnecessary. He also showed me a short cut to the clinic. It was actually three minutes longer, but I humored him.

    The Trumpies are doing you a favour though. I am going to duck after I say this, of course. But, the biggest favour that Trump has done for you is to demonstrate what a hopelessly flawed document your constitution is, probably the weakest, more full of holes than any other foundational document anywhere in the western developed democratic economies. One proof is simply that you've never stopped arguing about it, not for 1 day, since the day that the ink dried 230 years ago. But most importantly, that for the last four years your president has proven that he can just completely ignore it, and there's nothing that you can do about it. Nothing. But that's just me, leaning over your back fence, what do I know. But of course there's nothing that you can do about that. Not with a Republican majority in the Senate. So, the Trumpies are pointing the way for you - you can end your misery by focusing all of your short-term attention going forward on re-taking the Senate. You can't end the madness, and especially you can't end the international abject contempt and scorn, without removing all of the ludicrous "theoretical" levers (like "Faithless Electors", JHC, those are real possibilities) that an incumbent president can pull in order to stay in power, like in Belarus or Venezuela, those are your comps right now. And you just can't make those amendments as long as you have a Republican Senate. But that's just me, leaning over your back fence, justifiably comparing you to Belarus and Venezuela. After 2 Scotches.

    Whitmer is glorified here very much less than Trump is demonized. We don't even have a Whitmer Governorship thread, let alone one with 1000 pages of glorifying her, nor do we have a don't impeach Whitmer thread with a thousand pages glorifying her. No threads about removing term limits b/c she's so mentally fit. No threads about her not having giggolos or prostitutes. Your statement can be quantified rather easily and it clearly demonstrates you're not accurate. Whitmer hasn't acted unilaterally - she acted within a framework of laws that the state legislature passed. Then, the supreme court took her powers that the legislature had granted her (the court did that unilaterally, I might add), and now it's not even her acting unilaterally - it's the director of the state health department who is putting on the restrictions, which are also a legally granted power to him. I would urge you to practice accuracy in your posting. I personally have tolerance for valid criticism, however I will call out lies with the text of her EO when repeated lies about her EO are posted here. I'm not at all sorry for it either. If you want a forum where lies run rampant, join 8kun. If you don't want the forum to be "all Ds good, all Rs bad", then come and post opposite of that. If republicans don't want to come here and defend the indefensible, don't expect democrats to pick up that slack - that's nonsensical. This isn't socialism of saying nice things about Republicans, no matter how much you'd prefer that.

    After voting strictly for Republicans all my life, I voted for Biden. I am a moderate Republican, and I want my party back, away from the extreme right and Trump. I enjoyed most of Saturday, albeit from my work stations.

    I will be signing these Limited Edition Topps baseball cards at The Corner Ballpark in Detroit Tuesday afternoon from 1 AM to 4 PM. Please practice social distancing norms. There are only 100 cards and the signing fee is $1000 per card. All proceeds will go to arming LGBTQ Antifa youth militias in hopes of cementing a coalition with the Sharia Law armies, which according to the emails I received from people living in Idaho, have been policing the streets of Dearborn with tanks and armored troop carriers for the past 20 years. This may be the last chance we’ll ever have to keep America Gay, Communist, and Muslim. Thank you for your support.

    correct. It was not dissent, it was obnoxiousness that got you banned. That is the difference between moderated fora and twitter/facebook. If one is not prepared to accept that modicum of decorum, don't come to moderated fora. A place like MTS doesn't owe anyone an apology for having community standards.

    Yes, Friday May 15, 2020 was the 20th Anniversary of MotownSports.com! There was a brief interruption at one point early (2002) on when we were known as MotownTigers.com due to a changeover in business ownership, but that was eventually resolved and we went back to using our original name. Been going strong ever since. Lots of memories over the past 20 years, some great, some not so great. I don't think I have to go into too much detail, but we've obviously lost some users along the way in very unusual and tragic ways... Overall this has been a wonderful experience for me and I've met a lot of great people throughout the years that have become close friends, and that is something that would not have happened without this website. For those of you who have been around since the beginning or close to it, can you believe how fast the time has gone? I was a newly married 20-something when this place started, now I'm a crotchety old man yelling at my teenaged kid to take a shower and comb his hair. It's been great and hopefully there will be many more years ahead!
