Last pick on the side is the worst, when the captain, indicates grudgingly, sometimes without looking that you’re on the side, not by choice but in spite of it.
The newest benchmark might be not getting picked in a pandemic….if you ain’t get call up in the pandemic as Carla Moore says…babe, they ain’t calling.
Enter the task force. Its the call-up side that feels like a reification of every “make sure and pass for your first choice”, important career, implied patriarchy stricture ever….without the doctors, which is a little odd, given that the whole pandemic steering is being led by a statesmanlike Gen X’er. Thank Every Beneficent Being. I can imagine the hassikara t’were some others holding the reins.
