My Takes List

Updated: Jan 1

I decided to have a page of takes- things people say that I have an opinion on or just my wild independent opinions. These may end up in articles or this can be a fun place for you to come to know what I am thinking about.


I started this blog to have a place to document these sorts of things and this may become my backlog list of things to write about

Disclaimer- I also have non-sports takes. I put these last because I don't want these to offend anyone nor distract you from my sports opinions. For those that know me, it is not surprising that I have strong opinions beyond sports. In many ways I am an opinion machine at age 55. That being said, if you want to stick to the sports, I am making it easy for you to STOP HERE.


COVID


Countries with high obesity rates have the biggest issues with COVID. I don't know if this is ALWAYS true or unique to COVID- This is the non sports take that is brewing. I have no idea if I can or should put this in an article. Note it is data based just like most things you see from me.


Link between Pot/ CBD and COVID


Jesus/ Faith


The current events can only be explained or made sense of in the paradigm of the end times that the Bible discusses. If I get bold enough I will write about this. Let's just say this for now. The contrarian nature that you know and love in the Astros Sphere is how I tend to process society in general with a strong world view based in my faith in Jesus Christ.
