    Ethan Happ played in Italy Basketball Serie A and just returned home last Thursday. Here's his experience in Italy and back home. I was saddened when he said that Italian hospitals were overcrowded and doctors would tell elderlies with COVID19 to go home and just treat younger patients.

    in other news the lockers is taking advantage to the Virus as they have gone from $1.99 per lb to $3.99 per lb for hamburger.

    on the other side gas on the spot market is $0.71 for the April contracts. who knows gas at the pump just might drop to $1.25 per gallon.

    Now everyone is going to have to go back and re-insult everybody . . . but it'll be time well spent.

    Scary -- after playing at Wisconsin for 4 decades, Happ's gotta be in the most vulnerable age group.

    So, did anyone else tell 47 employees today that they were unemployed? Because that is what Governer Dewine's decision to close bars and restaurants did to our brewery.

    I'll be working without salary for as long as I can in hopes of having a business to reopen when this crisis ends.

    Wish me luck.

    Hope you pull through OK bud. Any chance the property ownership will suspend rent for the brewery until things are relatively back to normal?

    All the deniers are about to get a slap in the face pretty quickly with this. Same could be said about climate change, but they won't be around to see it.

    Hate it for ya, is that how many to operate the day to day restaurant/bar? I kept getting more liquid over the past few years thankfully in case the shut downs go even further.

    To summarize the real first 2020 off-season thread: Purdue sucks, Iowa is bringing in the best walk-ons in history in next season.

    OK now we can continue where we left off.

    Do you can or bottle? I'll buy.

    Will do. Gov. DeWine starting to get significant heat, not for trying to do whatever he can to help our state, but by not starting out by asking to space customers when they go to bar/restaurant instead of immediately closing everything.

    Holy shit man. I give you lots of shit here, but that's just message board banter. This is real life stuff. Wishing you the best. Is there anything we can do to help? Can we order beer from you or something?

    That sucks dude.

    I'm sure this would get tricky but I'd buy whatever and let you hand it out locally as you see fit. Probably legal issues with that but if you can find a way to do it I'm in...

    How much will it cost you to stay afloat for the next 8 weeks? I'm guessing we can help offset that as a group.

    and this is the same governor that called out Trump for not doing to the whole country, because he knew how to react to the Virus, been a couple other Gov's doing the same,

    can you imagine what would happened if Trump had done Nation wide what this Gov did.

    Trump would have been sliced diced and tarred and feathered.

    Iowa’s 1 stars via rivals who score 20 ppg in Florida will propel Iowa to a National Championship appearance bit it’s Ulis the younger brother of Tyler that will put them over the top. Think I did that right

    nah you
    forgot 6'4 Perkins who was just named the MIC POY. plus is a finalist for the Indiana Mr. BB.

    I said once before I will take those type of players out of Indiana any/every time.

    he played in the strongest region in 4A with some of the best players in the state of Indiana out playing them all.

    same with Ulis as he played in the toughest region in Illinois,
    Keegan was named the most Outstanding Player at the National Invitational where they played the best talent in the country.

    Keegan scored 36 points in a win over then #1 nationally ranked IMG Academy, in a span of 2 weeks he led DME Academy to wins over #7 Nationally Montverde and #9 Nationally ranked Woodstock Academy.

    Keegan led DME in scoring, blocked shots, 2nd in Rebounding and 2nd in steals
    Kris led the team in RPG, Steals @2.5 spg, 2nd in scoring, 2nd in assists.
    looks like Fran found himself some diamonds in the rough
    just like these

    even Ogudele looks like another good find,

    Thanks for all the support guys. I’m fortunate that I’ve made a lot of smart financial decisions in my life so I’m good.

    That said, I don’t have enough faith in our government officials to continue pumping money into the business for long. To take such drastic measures that affect the livelihood of so many Americans when only 61 people have died in the US (and none in Ohio) is terrifying.

    We’ll do a little bit of carry out business (sorry, can’t ship) and our spirits can still sell thru state liquor stores until the Governor closes them too. Between the 2 (and a hopeful respite from the bank), we should be ok for a while.
