Oh no...What will this cow town do on Sundays? Let me guess, fans have to be six feet apart, even at the urinal troughs and concession stands, no tailgating, mandatory masks, even under scarves and ski masks in the winter, gloves at all times, and no alcohol served. Wouldn't that be a great experience? And maybe Mahomes taps out for the season. I wouldn't blame him. Wouldn't want him or the fans to get sick. But, the Chinese Flu can discern between just regular people at a bar on 39th or at church, and protesters and football fans. It won't be a problem with the latter, just the former. Ask Dr. Fauci.

Why doesn't every dealership hire a night watchman to get a jump on break-ins? It's that simple and cheaper than insurance increases.
