WHERE DID I GO?
The events over the last 48 hours caused me to go silent for several reasons.. first and foremost the COVID issues with the Browns have now impacted the Head Coach, a Pro Bowl offensive lineman, and one of our star receivers, to only count three members of the roster. The browns will be without Head Coach Kevin Stefanski, Pro Bowl OL Joel Bitonio, and high impact WR KhaDarel Hodge due to COVID-19 positive tests. They will also be without DL Olivier Vernon, who Ruptured his Achillies last week against the Steelers. they will be short-handed, they will be at a disadvantage but this team has faced adversity the entire season and I have no doubt that they will be ready to face whatever happens on Sunday and approach it as they have all season long.
Second, the events today have impacted me greatly, to think I lived to see an attempted coup against the government of the US, instigated by a sitting US President is appalling to me, and I don’t know exactly how to comprehend it at this time. I am shocked, I am appalled, and I am still trying to comprehend how this could possibly happen. This was the first time since 1814 during The War of 1812 that the Capitol Building had been compromised and to top it all off… there are pictures of an individual carrying the Confederate Battle Flag in the halls of the Capitol Building and that disgusts me. It was ugly, it was the act of domestic terrorists, and those involved need to be held accountable for their actions.
WHEN WILL I BE BACK?
In answer to that question… to put it simply… tomorrow… I will write in-depth about the sports world, including NFL Playoffs, NHL season ramping up, NBA and whatever is also on my mind.
Have a good night, hug your kids, embrace your loved ones, and most of all… take care of each other…
