(670 The Score) It's an odd time for all of us, as the state has issued stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic and we don't know when life will return to normal.

Life slowing to a crawl has given us more time to think and reflect -- and learn about ourselves and others. With that in mind, we asked our 670 staff a series of open-ended questions that ranged from what they've learned recently to how they're occupying their children at home 24/7 to their most embarrassing moments amid the pandemic.

The answers were a mix of seriousness and lightheartedness, which seems to be the best balance for everyone in these times. Over the next few days, we'll present the responses.

Score Chronicles, Part I: What have we learned?

Let's get to it.


Dan Bernstein: Ate cold fried chicken directly over the garbage can because I was too lazy to get a plate that I would then have to wash.

Mike Mulligan: Did I mention watching Frozen 2?

David Haugh: Probably that silly elbow bump as a greeting. As necessary as it was, that still felt pretty silly. Oh, and I sang every word of “Coward of the County” in the middle of a Scrabble game Saturday night in honor of Kenny Rogers’ death, but thankfully there’s no video or audio proof.

Jay Zawaski: Nothing yet ... but I'm sure it's coming.

Danny Parkins: I set up an online poker group with my friends so we can play and gamble with each other. We play poker on an app and Zoom conference call on a second screen so we can laugh and have some normalcy. Then we settle up winners and losers with Venmo. We’re also organizing a push-up contest among the friend group and setting over/unders for each person.

Mark Grote: I asked Will Perdue what it was like to be on the 72-win Bulls – a team on which he did not exist.

David Schuster: I cut my own hair. I figured no matter how much I butcher it up, it won’t make any difference because no one will see me (maybe) for weeks. It will grow back anyway.

Adam Studzinski: As I fill out this questionnaire it’s almost 4:30 p.m. and I’m still in my Batman robe that I put on when I got out of bed at 12:30 p.m. Yes, I own a Batman robe.

Julie DiCaro: Fell out of the car at Mariano's. My leg got caught in my purse, and I fell about four feet right onto my face. Do you know how busy Mariano's was that day? REAL busy. People came running – it was the dumbest thing ever.

Chris Emma: I'm putting ​on cologne over sweats.

Kevin Dziepak: Filled out this survey.

Jordan Maly: I downloaded Tik Tok and spent three-and-a-half hours scrolling … and scrolling … and scrolling … and scrolling. Very much a low point.

Mike Esposito: It hasn’t happened yet, but it will soon. My two sons and I all need haircuts, and I have a set of Wahl clippers. So that will be an interesting experiment. We may all end up with buzz cuts.

Julio Rausseo: Nothing too embarrassing has happened to me yet...
