We don't have an outdoor mask mandate, but we definitely have one for inside stores. Luke Humphries was the one not wearing the mask in the store. Simply no excuse for that.

Part of MLB rules: —Players must retrieve their own hats, gloves, sunglasses, etc. from the dugout to take on to the field even if they end the inning on base or at the plate. —Players are “strongly discouraged” from throwing the ball around the infield after an out. —Players not expected to play in the game shouldn't sit in the dugout.

NFL rules:

All other pro sports have and enforce their strict guidelines.

Pro disc golfers? Too elite to bother with it.

Since it's been now mentioned a lot. People who tend to talk **** about people being afraid, in my experience, have never been in a situation where there was real fear (or real risk, for that matter). Their lives have been comfortable enough to never know it, so they don't respect it.

Yes, I find myself unwilling to give views to YouTube disc golf channels that are unwilling to set a good example with regard to pandemic precautions.

I'm sure they are all shaking in their boots.

shouldn't they be social distancing, and wearing masks when social distancing (even outside) is not possible? I tried to find the answer for myself but I had a bit of a hard time reading through the texas covid site, and keeping up with ever-changing rules is tough even in my home state
