Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship: Enjoy Afternoon Off From COVID!!!

This afternoon, once again, we're going to act like the current plague doesn't exist for fun and profit. 

Local restaurants & bars will be packed and more than 70K people will crowd into Arrowhead amid the colder weather wherein sneezes and coughs travel even further

Moreover . . . 

There won't be any followup or "reporting" about infections connected to the game despite the fact, if you believe the stats, infections will be likely. 

A not so fun fact . . . 

The seven-day rolling average for daily new COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. has been climbing since mid-November, reaching 2,267 on Thursday and surpassing a September peak of 2,100 when delta was the dominant variant.

But don't expect to hear any of that public health science during the game . . . Local news will save the scare tactics for Monday . . . I think it makes people work harder. 

Anyhoo . . . 

Believe it or not we don't want to ruin the game. 

TKC will be watching, in a very dark corner of this basement . . . And possibly upholding the honor of Brittany on social media.

Meanwhile . . . 

Locals will be able to hear a pin drop on otherwise busy city streets. 

Too bad it's Sunday or this would be a GREAT opportunity to rob a bank . . . For those of us who can't legally rob a financial institution by way of ownership

Anyhoo . . .

All of THIS is merely to remind locals that the agenda setting function of media has focused on the purchase of chicken wings in celebration of football glory and that, in and of itself, is cause for celebration. 

Accordingly, here are just a few pregame news items to consider . . .
