I mentioned how difficult it has been finding stories which are not Wuhan Virus related. Like a lot of bloggers, I don’t want to continue posting about this nonsense every day, especially since many of you are keeping up on the developments.
I’ve been searching for something entertaining to post this weekend and I found Dick Bupkis, so I decided to take the weekend off. This decisions coincides with my having the weekend off from work, and I plan on doing literally nothing, except jogging once a day.
I’m sorry if this is inconvenient, but I’d rather take two days than rehash coronavirus stories.
I’ll be back to normal posting Monday, and hopefully the media sites will find something new to post.
UPDATE: The number of officers in our building with Wuhan symptoms are now in double digits. Another reason I want to just jog and rest at home this weekend. I feel great, but I should probably chill most of the weekend.

While hockey players can be considered some of the most attractive and best fit athletes in the world, their female counterparts are no slouches, either. Take Bluewater Hawks goaltender Mikayla Demaiter.
Meet 20 year old Mikayla Demaiter from Chatham, Ontario. The Western University student has gone viral as “the world’s sexiest goaltender” and… well who are we to argue?
The blonde bombshell put up a 2.50 goals against average and .909 save percentage in 20 games with the PWHL’s Bluewater Hawks last season. But let’s get real, you’re not here to pore over stats. (H/T – AZ Kevin)
Now I know this won’t matter to most of you, but her goaltender stats are ridiculously high. Her Goals Against Average is equal to Dallas Stars goalie Ben Bishop, the twelfth highest in the NHL. So yeah, she’s pretty talented.
There are more photos below the fold…

My word, Tuesday evening was one for the books. We suffered through seeing three detectives call out sick, some thug shooting at police – none were hit – and literally the dumbest sergeant in the history of policing. How bad was this person? The mind reels.
So we get a call from the district sergeant who demanded to speak with a supervisor. Since the supervisor was out at the shooting/barricaded person call, the closest thing to a boss was me. Reluctantly, and with a lot of attitude, the sergeant deemed me worthy enough to listen to her mind-blowing MENSA-level intelligence…

Since the Wuhan Virus is the all-day, every day go-to story in America, I figured I needed to post about it occasionally; especially when the worst Americans are hit. “Americans” such as our brave heroes in the mainstream media.
Gannett announced Monday it is cutting pay and furloughing journalists at its newspapers across the country as ad revenue plunges during the coronavirus pandemic.
The publisher of more than 100 newspapers, including USA Today, the Detroit Free Press, The Columbus Dispatch and The Arizona Republic, is reportedly furloughing workers who make more than $38,000. Those employees will be subject to furloughs of one week per month in April, May and June, according to a tweet from investigative reporter Gregory Holman of the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri, a Gannett-owned paper.
But wait, there’s more. Scumbag publication Buzzfeed is also laying off staff. Lulz.
In an internal memo on Wednesday, the company announced a graduated salary reduction for the majority of employees for the months of April and May, adding that company brass would meet with the news union to ratify the cuts. (H/T – AOSHQ)
There’s nothing more depressing than being laid off, furloughed, or outright fired. When productive, hard-working people like Ronni are being furloughed, that’s a tragedy. When the despicable media is being laid off, it’s a good start.
The Malaysian government has come under fire for suggesting women dress up for their significant others during the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
Malaysia’s government has drawn criticism for telling women to dress up at home and avoid nagging their husbands during the coronavirus lockdown. Controversial posters circulated by the country’s women’s affairs ministry on Tuesday issued advice on how to avoid domestic conflicts during the partial lockdown, which began on 18 March.
Honestly, every government should put out this advice to women on a daily basis. Just sayin’.
One of the illustrations said women should refrain from being “sarcastic” if they need help with household chores.
Oh yeah, like that will happen. /eyeroll
Another told women to avoid “nagging” their husbands and attempt to inject humor by using a voice similar to the anime character Doraemon – a blue robot cat popular across Asia.
Avoid nagging? Dude, have you even met a woman?
The ministry also urged women to dress up and wear their make-up while working from home.
Finally, an initiative I can get behind! (Literally.)
A Flori-Duh man and a small group of his closest friends (strike one) held a gender reveal party (strike two) which was truly en fuego (strike three).
Even with a burn ban in place, fire officials in Florida have already seen an increase in fires, including a Saturday blaze that was reportedly sparked by a gender reveal celebration.
“We were informed that it was caused by a gender reveal using Tannerite and a weapon,” said Brevard County Fire Rescue Chief Mark Schollmeyer. “Something as seemingly innocent as a gender reveal, can turn into a large-scale disaster where homes are threatened.”
To be honest, I am not sure which is the most heinous offense: the gender reveal party, or the ten acre fire which resulted from their stupidity.
ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit has stated he believes the NFL and college football will cancel their 2020 seasons due to the Wuhan Virus. Oh Lord, please let this be true!
ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit says that he would be “shocked” if the NFL or college football, plays a single game in 2020.
“I’ll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I’ll be so surprised if that happens,” the College Gameday host said, according to TMZ.
“Just because from what I understand, people that I listen to, you’re 12 to 18 months from a [coronavirus] vaccine. I don’t know how you let these guys go into locker rooms and let stadiums be filled up and how you can play ball. I just don’t know how you can do it with the optics of it,” Herbstreit continued.
Herbstreit reminded his audience that it takes time to gear up and plan for a season of games. “You don’t all of the sudden come up with something in July or August,” he said, noting that it takes many months in advance to plan a season.
Look, I’ve already effectively lost the NHL, and Kyle and Erik lost their lacrosse seasons, so the least I could get is seeing the NFL skip a season, too.
Leftists and Democrats, but I repeat myself, never oppose a chance to acquire more power, and the Wuhan Virus national emergency is giving them all the power they desire.
Take leftist Washington, D.C. mayor Murial Bowser, for example. Muriel is threatening citizens with jail time if they violate her completely unconstitutional shelter in place order. What a good little fascist she is.
Mayor Muriel Bowser is threatening residents of Washington, DC, with 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak.
The threat of jail is alarming residents and civil libertarians who point out that at least five inmates tested positive for COVID-19 in the city’s 1,700-inmate jail near Capitol Hill.
So you’re condemning citizens to contracting Wuhan Virus because they went outside? S-M-R-T!
The stay-home order has exceptions for grocery shopping and work deemed essential. Outdoor recreation such as running is allowed, but cannot involve people outside of a household.
The order is similar to dictates in neighboring Maryland and Virginia, but shocked residents of Washington, where there are just 401 of the nation’s 160,000 confirmed cases.
Really, all three leftist states – Maryland’s governor is a RINO at best – are all-in for fascism? Wow, who woulda thought?
So I woke up at 5:40am, as I do every day work tour, showered, changed, and headed out to another week of 12-hour shifts. I got maybe a half mile away from home when the cellphone lit up. I pulled over and looked at the text messages and two voice mails, then became enraged.
The city, in its infinite wisdom, canceled the 12-hour shifts. I guess they got sick of paying out overtime.
Now this isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. The 12-hour shifts were not fun, and always wore us out. What was a terrible thing was the department made this decision hastily, and notifications were not exactly made in a timely fashion.
My squad was notified around 10pm last night. Keep in mind we needed to be in the office by 7am. For 12-hour shifts, most of us have been hitting the sack around 9-9:30. I was in bed by 9:10 last night, and asleep by 10pm. Who the f**k decides to contact their personnel that late in the evening? What the f**k is wrong with you?
So I’ll hang out around the house this morning, and get ready to go back to work at 1:30pm. I cannot reiterate how much I despise this city, this mayor, and this department.
