    Yes, it will give us time to develop chemistry, and gel.

    I believe the last non-weather related change like this was after 9/11

    It was just a matter of time when other sports did it and some MLS pulled games and then players started getting sick. But it's very understandable to err on the side of caution. :(

    The silver lining in all this is Guillermo gets to think about how long he has before getting the boot if nothing changes. Chicharito gets more time with the team and the team gets more time with Chicharito. We get spared more of the shit show. :)

    I like everyone finding the silver-lining in all this. But what am I now going to do with my weekends?!?!?

    Now we don't have to worry about the Galaxy play making us feel sick, only COVID-19. Stay healthy, everybody!

    This Coronavirus stuff is stressing me out, I have to be honest. I'm sad to not have sports to watch but I can't argue with the rationale. I hope we, as a world, are able to get this shit under control.

    In the meantime, anyone know any good books?

    The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton



    … just kidding. That’s not a good book.

    My 4 year old randomly really got in to F1 over the past month or so. He knows all the driver’s names and is a staunch Ferrari fan. He was so excited for the new season. Managing my disappointment is easy, in part because both my teams are rubbish right now and a merciful end to the Premiere League sounds lovely as does a "do over" start for the Galaxy. Managing disappointment in irrational humans is much harder.

    I almost went with The Stand, but I actually liked that one.

    Agreed. Crichton was uneven at his best and strange to boot. The movies adapted from his bookswere always better than the books (at least those I remember). IMO, he completely lost it in State of Fear.

    Serious suggestion but you've probably already read it: Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. I'm not even that big of a sci-fi buff but it was a great read. It's 480 pages and I couldn't put it down; perfect to kill a lot of time.

    I can’t claim to have read all of them, but they felt very repetitive. I mean Jurassic Park was just Westworld with dinosaurs instead of robots.
