The Sporting News looks at why the NFL let the Ravens game continue after Dez Bryant’s positive Covid-19 test. The reaction from fans, announcers, and players seems to indicate that they think the NFL is being inconsistent and/or that the NFL’s approach to the pandemic is a charade. I can’t believe that it’s taken them until now to come to that realization.

We come to today’s media selection:

We talked about this yesterday, this is probably one of my favorite non-Vikings playoff games ever. It features my man Eli Manning. Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-If discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on, don’t forget to tip your waitress (from a minimum of six feet away, of course), and try the tiger meat.
