My boy and I start golfing together last summer (he is 15).

It is an exceptionally good way to spend some time together and bond a bit.

My boy is pretty serious and athletically expects a lot from himself. He plays aggressive physical sports (rugby/hockey/lacrosse/wrestling) and after a few games last year he started to put it together "Golf is the only sport I play where it doesn't help the angrier I get" , a good teaching moment.

No, you're right, but it's easy for 3 people to say they live alone and play as a threesome. It's more confusing doing it the way they are doing it. I live with one person, so I can only play with her (she doesn't play). If I'm single I can play with 2 others. If I want to have a 5 person BBQ, where it's even more difficult to distance than when golfing I can.

I have no issue with outdoor sports where you're coming into close contact with people and breathing hard, things like Tennis, and Golf etc, seems silly.

You can socialize outside with 4 other people, but don’t exercise or play a game while doing it?

And actually the wording is this “ All outdoor sports and recreation activities are prohibited, except with members of your household, or your two close contacts if you live alone.” which if taken literally means don’t do it alone either...only do it with members of your household.
Yeah I understand basketball where you're breathing on each other, but tennis is more socially distanced than going on a bike ride, walk, or having a bbq. It's bizarre.



I also try to stay out of nitpicking some of the little rules, but this just flies in the face of a bunch of other rules. Can I just classify golf as an outdoor gathering? I've basically followed all the rules to this point, (we've been locked down more than most due to my spouse's occupation) but this stuff should be better thought out, especially when we've been promoting getting outside.

I also get that there are a lot of people that given the chance would go out, get hammered, and play golf and likely not follow some of the rules as well.


Anyway, responding and posting about makes it seem like I'm really upset by it, I'm not, it just seems silly. Shut it all down, or don't.

It wasn't confusing last summer when they said don't share a cart. I usually walk.

I have no issue banning outdoor sports like basketball where you are breathing heavy and bumping into each other etc. It's easier to distance playing golf than it is when I have a 5 person BBQ in my back yard. I hadn't even thought of tennis until your post..

It's bizarre, you aren't near each other or breathing heavy playing golf. I find doing it this way is more confusing. Ban it or don't, but when the rules make zero sense people will ignore them.

Haha even I think it's a fair point many days.. I mean we're all here on a message board formed around Strapping metal blades on your feet, running around a sheet of ice, with an oddly shaped, taped up stick smacking around a piece of rubber. We do this in places where ice doesn't even exist outside of a freezer.

Agreed. Little point picking apart the rules, and if everyone does their job (keep booking appointments) we are out of this soon.
But, church stuff is puzzling:
15 people at church (unless one is dead) then 10 people only, but if you go outside after, then only 5.

The way I look at it, analyzing the possibilities of outdoor sports would just lead to confusion.

- Basketball is banned
- Golf is ok unless you're sharing a cart. Then no.
- Actually, playing 21 or horse is ok on a basketball court, but no 3 on 3, unless it's full court, not half court
- Singles tennis is allowed
- Doubles tennis is banned. Unless each team is the same household

I accept the blanket banning of everything to do something despite the fact it's pretty annoying.
I think that these inconsistencies and rules that make zero sense just end up having people break those rules. Aside from the fact that my patience will only wear thinner as people have more opportunity to be vaccinated (and if they've chosen not to, that's really up to them), to think that a year into this we could have some thought put into the restrictions and regulations isn't asking that much. We did this last summer; golf had a similar battle and everything was fine. There's no reason to change that now.

It’s too bad smart watches didn’t get on board with showing us early signs of covid.

Smart watches detect early abnormalities in skin temperature, an increased resting heart rate and hrv (which is heart stress). It’s really too bad people didn’t take advantage of all the health data right under their nose.

I haven’t had covid and have no plan on getting it. However recently i had an ear infection and my smartwatch showed changes to my resting heart rate, skin temperature and hrv before the pain even started. Something my thermometer didn’t even show.

I think there’s so much potential to the technology that we ignored over the last year.

Wouldnít it be amazing if you woke up to a notification that read ďYou have the flu. You are in day 1 of 7 of being viral. Your boss has been notified. Go back to sleep.Ē

Apple watch would definitely show a drop in O2
