    The California guidelines are currently just for pro sports:

    Interestingly enough, during the earlier CHHS presser, Ghaly clarified that the new spectator guidelines are only for pro sports teams. “We don’t have current plans to release guidance for spectators of collegiate or other types of sporting events,” he said. When Smith was asked about that split, he responded, “I don’t think I can clarify what the state is saying because it doesn’t make sense.”

  2. Ooof. Canadian content overload!

    But wouldn’t you just give anything if the Saskatchewan party was actually running for election in Ontario or Quebec?

    And there’s something deeply meaningful about the $310m in Packer subsidies being used not to eliminate the need for die hard Packer fans to continue sitting on aluminum benches when it’s -20, but to build a luxurious ring around the existing stadium so that richer fans (and non Packer fans) don’t have to.

    If there is a better allegory for the general state of what we continue to call capitalism today, I can’t think of one.
