After that title do we really need to say anything else. Episode 300! Who would of thought.
Strangely slow political news week for some reason. The fervor over Trumps’ lies about the pandemic has died down already. Both Trump and Biden did town halls this week to no great excitement. Also Hupp takes us all on a walk down memory lane on this week’s Bully Pulpit. Don’t miss it.
In case you missed it, and I know a lot of you did, two big things happened this past week, and then didn’t happen.
First we have the meteor that most people were hoping just ended it all. Alas, missed us by this much. 2020 rolls on.
Second, the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA staged a walkout/boycott of their playoff game against the Orlando Magic over the shooting in Kenosha WI. Another huge swing and a miss. All by the NBA players.
This occurred on a Wednesday afternoon. By the time other leagues, MLB, NHL, WNBA, PGA, NFL training camp, knew it was happening it was Wednesday early Thursday. They all decided to join the boycott of their respective sports in some fashion.
By late Thursday the NBA voted and decided to resume their playoff season, leaving all the other leagues in the lurch. Nice work guys.
Thanks for nothing.

Alice Cooper was onto something when he penned that student favorite in 1972. Little did he know…
That’s the current political football right now. To school or not to school, to go to school in reality or in a real building. Much like the NCAA, this issue is has never been about the kids themselves.
We will break it down and reveal our own choices on our progeny’s school method for the upcoming semester. That plus a whole lot more in tonight’s episode of UF/UF The Podcast
I used to think Anti-Vaxxers were kind of ridiculous. But compared to Ant-Maskers? Hell, Anti-Vaxxers are practically mainstream.
An.ti – Mask.er (an ti mas ker) n. 2020 origin American Continent 1. Angry or discontented American, devoid of care for their fellow country men or any human for that matter to the point of refusing to wear a mask the way a normal person wears pants. 2. Person who believes wearing a mask potentially protecting their fellow man from a deadly virus is so egregious to their “constitutional rights” they would rather get infected and die than simply WEAR A GODDAMN MASK. (See Herman Cain) (except you can’t see Herman Cain because he’s hospitalized with Covid-19 after not wearing a mask to Trump’s Tulsa Oklahoma rally)
Yeah man, this is where we are right now. I type this as I watch a series called Life After People. It now seems less like fantasy and more prophetic. The current news makes our Signs of the Apocalypse seem like a silly joke.
In other news, Joe comes out of the basement to throngs of tens, Trump goes into hysterics after crowds of hundreds not millions, and the election on Nov 3rd is likely to be in chaos for millions. Other than that it should be fine. And what happened to the murder bees?
