Use Lyme to fight off the Covid19, then essential oils cure the Lyme!

Bonus if you know the quotes origin, maybe
I first heard it in the outro to a Ludacris song, something of either Chicken & Beer or Red Light District. But there seems to be a consensus that the actual origin is different.

Congrats to COVID-19 and the Pro Tour for coming together and robbing Paul McBeth of another victory at WACO on behalf of some dude with a mustache! At first, it didn't seem like the overblown sensation would dig its paranoid tendrils into the obscure sport of Super Lawn Frisbee, but with a little help from the hyper-PR-aware cowardice of the modern corporate model of the Pro Tour, together they capitalized on McBeth's failure to lead wire-to-wire, cutting down the champion in a headwind of convenience. In the coming weeks, COVID-19 looks forward to ravaging the freaky shag van of the mustachioed tournament winner guy and his frisbee chick.

I respect your position immensely. Very commendable. I was only answering the person who claimed TD's and clubs who were ahead in ordering would be "stuck" with merch and out of money on refunds. This amendment clearly addresses that. But it is always better when leaders can stand like Mark Cuban and you guys have.

Like really, you think I was being sincere?

I'm just a little gotten to over the tournament ending and panic infecting DG (and Paul not winning). Hell, they probably even did the right thing. Maybe. I still don't like that mustache though.

This pisses me off... with all the pro sports gone I was hopeful that the PDGA would just ban spectators, tournament gatherings, and high fiving, and then keep the events and video coverage. I don't think this had to happen, disc golf is a non contact individual sport in the outdoors.

I'm running out of things to do in my winter bunker. You can only have so many toilet paper fights.

go outside and play disc golf?

America is already in full panic, no logic, hoard non-essential supplies mode. It's going to get much much more stupid in the coming weeks. It doesn't make sense to have touring pros or any kind of event held at public parks were local authorities are coming up with their own version of controlling the situation and botching it horribly to boot.

PGA can do whatever they want because they play on private courses (mostly). We have enough challenge dealing with the parks dept, and local gov on a good day. This is not a good day.

Do I think the whole thing is stupid? Yes, of course. Is some kind of response warranted? Absolutely. America is just the kind of place that can't do these types of things right, we haven't been for a long long time. Logic doesn't rule this country, fear does.

I absolutely need to know, what is a toilet paper fight?

Feel free to include rules and strategies. After only just hearing about it, my immediate plan is to become the best toilet paper fighter of all time.

I would love to believe that you’re right about it being overreaction, however that requires believing that both China and Italy never happened.

We had the luxury of seeing how other countries mishandled this yet we still botched it.
