Kansas City COVID Spike Paused For EPIC Chiefs Playoff Run!?!

One of the best playoff games in NFL history is really the only thing worth talking about today, yet even amid the celebration we notice a contradiction.

Check-it . . .

So many dire warnings about the consequences of COVID in Kansas City exclude mention of thousands of fans huddled together at Arrowhead or so many local bars & restaurants crowded with people to watch the game.

To be fair . . .

In the aftermath of the EPIC playoff victory, during the work week we're reminded that hanging out at a coffee shop without a mask is akin to murder and youngsters in reasonably sized classrooms must be muzzled at all costs. 

Again, this isn't TKC complaining . . . 

We just notice that nobody has bothered to explain the science of these contradictions and local newsies aren't even bothering to ask health leaders about the disparity during press conferences when dire predictions are repeated nearly every day. 

I'm sure at some point we're going to get another morgue tour to distract from tough questions about worsening inflation and Prez Biden's increasingly difficult to understand public statements.  

Nevertheless . . .

We hope everybody at the stadiums and so many local bars are okay given that the bathrooms where football fans gather are kind of a health hazard regardless of a global pandemic. 

Accordingly, we share more TKC news gathering regarding the EPIC last minute victory along with a few pandemic news reports that are somewhat related . . .
