Stay Safe – A message from BSB

Stay safe

The coronavirus has shut down the sports world. It has shut down several countries, and it looks like the US is next to completely shut down. Resorts are closing. Bars and restaurants too. All in an effort to shorten the curve.

It took a while to digest some of this news. Personally, I distanced myself from social media and the sporting world this weekend, save for the occasional news post here. I felt it necessary to understand what was going on and how best to assess the situation from a personal standpoint.

We are hoping you are all finding ways to stay safe. Follow medical professionals orders. Practice social distancing. But also doing so in a responsible manner.

In times like these, it is our individual responsibility to not only take care of our loved ones, but ensure the safety of those around us. That includes too many things to list out, but it all boils down to not being a jerk. Don’t be a jerk.

As for the site, we will continue to produce content, but as you can imagine it will be a little difficult with everything shut down. Expect the content to be less frequent. Seems weird to say, but unfortunately that’s how it is. This site has survived a lockout, a hack, and 2 crashed servers. We’ve found a way to produce content, and will continue to do so. But more importantly, your health and safety is of the utmost importance

If you feel sick, stay home. If you were exposed, stay home. Better yet, just stay home. And remember that toilet paper is neither nutritious nor edible.

There is a meme going around that some generations were asked to go to war to save future generations. Well those generations now need us all to stay home so they aren’t put at risk. Do your part.

    It’s important not to panic, at the same time people need to take this seriously. If you’re young and healthy you have little to worry about, aside from the possibility of spreading the virus to those who are old and/or less healthy. Be responsible, follow the guidelines … it’s a minor inconvenience that can have a major impact on our society as a whole. Please remember that you could be carrier, even if you feel perfectly fine. The virus has a long incubation period and symptoms can be barely noticeable in a vast majority of people.

    Oh and Dave, there’s still a lot to talk about — what we would normally be talking about in June could now be discussed — like who are the players the Rangers could be targeting come the draft, how good is Barron and might he come out after his junior season, same for Tyler Wall …. and/or is Lauri Pajuniemi a REAL prospect that has been flying under the radar.

    • Oh yeah Tanto, I am with you 100% on the animals to people preference!
      Stay safe and stay health everyone…………………

        My brother it’s been a long time since you’ve posted, or maybe I missed it, but hope all is well with you. Stay healthy, say a prayer for this country, and it’s people!!!!!

        • Hello my friend. Most importantly I hope all is well with Maria and the rest of your family.
          I have been checking in here but haven’t posted. Work has been very demanding, which is a good thing. I still am able to watch all the Ranger games, either live or recorded.
          Please stay safe.

            Thanks for asking, Maria is doing fine, and in total remission. We won’t need to address her problem for about another four years, or so, and repeat her treatments, but she’ll do fine. Take care , and stay healthy my friend…………

  • As an 85 year old, I’m being very careful.
    Started rooting for Rangers in 1944.
    This is how I feel.

      Great to see someone a bit older than me, by some 12 years, who has followed this team that long. Maybe you can post some old memories of the teams in the late 40’s, early 50’s which could brighten our days for us!!!!!!!! Take care my friend……………………
