Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! Thank you for joining us. We have a couple of stale, day-old donuts, if you’re hungry. They’re on a greasy paper plate on that table over there. And feel free to wash them down with a large glass of our ice-cold, locally-sourced links.
COVID-19 has thrown the sports universe into complete chaos. But we all hope the NFL season will proceed as planned this fall, with appropriate safety measures in place, of course. Dr. Anthony Fauci is casting some doubt about, ya know, how exactly an NFL season could proceed in the middle of a pandemic.
