That had to hurt.

Outdoors with a nice breeze? With cheering beer swillers spraying COVID45? Not a good plan.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Only fans of the losing team get Covid.

I'm watching the Duke Mayo Classic (go Dawgs!) And it feels like a movie from 2019. Great to hear the bands. I hope it's safe but...awfully crowded.

I watched several games and can only recall seeing a single mask in the stands of any of the games. That was a surgical mask, good to reduce the odds of the wearer spreading it but offering no protection from catching it.

DeathSantis has refused to allow Florida universities to require masks or vaccinations, so teams and fans playing in the state or against teams from Florida are being exposed. This week that would include Alabama, Notre Dame, North Carolina State, and Boise State.

Duke’s is my favorite, wish I could get it in CA… My dearly departed father used to send me a jar of the mayonnaise when he could get a relative from SC to send a case. Good stuff.

These football games will turn out to be super spreader events.

Despite my initial northern suspicions, I agree that its superior. Its also available at local grocery stores.

What locality are you in mattkime? Duke's is memory lane food for me.

Sounds like another regional mayo brand that is better than Hellmanns (Best Foods) mayo. Anyone from the Northeast who has had both Cain's mayo and Duke's able to compare them?

Interesting digression about mayonnaise - how do you all feel about the stuff using, say, olive oil instead of the normal base (eggs?)

To get back to the topic at hand... football stadiums.

I am vaccinated.

I attended Lollapalooza. Proof of vaccination had to be presented to attend, or for the unvaccinated a 48-hour recent medical grade negative covid test (not just the quick over the counter drugstore consumer tests) and wearing a mask. 90% of almost 400k attendees were vaccinated, 8% masked and 2% turned away at the entry gates. Fewer than 300 cases linked back to possible transmission at Lolla and most of those were linked to several indoor afterparty events and not the big outdoor festival.

I have also attended two high school football games in the past two weeks in my community with high 70s to low 80s vaccination rate. The first was in stifling 90+ degree weather, and I think folks were more at risk of heat stroke than covid. Masks were intermittently worn amongst the crowd but particularly by the students who have all grown quite accustomed to the requirement. So far, so good, I still feel fine and expect that I will continue to do so, because the transmission rate in my community is around 50 per 100k right now and the vast vast majority of those cases are asympomatic spread amongst our vaccinated population. The ones who are in trouble are the members of a fundamentalist church that doesn't do medicines... but they apparently all play soccer not football.

TLDR: for vaccinated folks without major health conditions that put them at particular risk of severe covid, football stadiums are probably just fine.

I envy you gabster, getting to do normal fun stuff in relative safety. The vaccine rate in my county has not hit 40% yet.

No crowded stadia for me.

As for the olive oil mayo, that's a no from me.

Olive oil has a strong taste so when I want that I use olive oil.

Likewise good mayo also has a unique taste, so why ruin it. Dukes is called "twangy" because it's a little more acidic than most mayo.

Dukes is an acceptable substitute if you can't get Blue Plate

Any of the others? I'll just use ketchup

Bless all your mayonnaise loving hearts! My dad favored peanut butter/banana/mayonnaise sandwiches on Orowheat bread…

P.S. Thanks for the link LD!

Peanut butter and mayo, hard for me to fathom.

Mayo, like COVID45, doesn’t keep well in the hot sunshine.

Indoor stadiums? Night games? Cloudy days?



It is what it is.
