6 Simple Reasons Why You Should Stop Having Large Parties And Gatherings During The COVID-19 Pandemic

“You’re the reason why the pandemic is taking forever to end.”

People throwing large parties and having large gatherings are honestly selfish during the COVID-19 crisis. The disregard to not keep others safe blows my mind. Reasons why you should not be throwing parties and have large gatherings are because:

1. You can kill people

You can kill people even if you think you are not: you can not feel symptoms but still have COVID-19 and pass it to others without know and get others sick.

2. You are keeping COVID around longer

Again, you can have COVID and pass it to others. And others can pass it to others. And so on.

3. You can get sick

Stop having an “I can't get it" attitude. Anyone can get it and you can get very sick.

4. It’s selfish and stupid

Why are you having large gatherings during a national crisis that can affect your health?

5. You are showing no respect

You are going against CDC guidelines to decrease COVID-19... And you're doing the opposite.

6. People want to get back to normal

Everyone is sick of this sh*t. Follow regulations so we can combat COVID-19 for good.

Stop having parties and being dumb. No offense. We need to beat this. I'm sure you're tired of the pandemic, too, but it won't stop unless the parties stop.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.
