Remember earlier this week when I told you guys about the ‘VID baby bust? The NY Times is jumping on the bandwagon
On Monday, I wrote about how people just aren’t banging like they used to, and they definitely aren’t pumping out babies. Well looky here at what the New York Times is out with this morning. “Expect 300,000 fewer births than usual this year,” the headline reads on the op-ed page where two economics professors lay out how the country will see a ‘VID baby bust.
The professors write that this decline in babies could lead to a “loneliness” epidemic amongst children who never got that younger sibling due to the ‘VID era. So not only have elementary kids been kept out of their schools and had their brains warped by their parents’ harping on ‘VID, but now these youngsters get to do all of this on their own without a sibling to play and build a lifelong relationship with.
U.S. birth rates fell from 4.3 million in 2007 to 3.75 million in 2019, and now that number is expected to drop another 300,000 for the 2020 baby cycle. The only solution, according to the professors? Immigration.
Or more responsible banging and lots of it. Debate amongst yourselves on this one.
• I’m sure you’ll be seeing more about this on OutKick at some point today: Overtime.tv, a sports media company aimed at high school athletes, says it will start a basketball league for 16-to-18-year-olds that will pay players at least $100k a year. Let the war between Overtime and college basketball coaches begin because if they’re serious with this money, this is going to be a bloody war over talent.
• The Florida Man who used scissors to cut off the penis of his wife’s slam piece received a 20-year sentence on Wednesday. Guys, put the scissors away. Just divorce her and get your own new slam piece. Sure, the ex-wife’s going to get your money, but at least you won’t be giving up 20 years of your life to the prison system.
• It’s that time of year when the NFL considers rule changes. Here’s one to watch: an alternative onside kick. Teams would be given the opportunity to “try a fourth-and-15 from a team’s own territory,” according to the NFL Network. This proposal was floated in 2020 when people were focused on the ‘VID. Teams would make the fourth down attempt from their own 25-yard-line. If you don’t convert, the opponent takes over from the dead-ball spot. The analytics departments will be working overtime crunching the conversion-rate numbers.
It’s already Thursday, it’s Arnold Palmer Invitational weekend at Bay Hill, and I see 60s in the forecast next week. The energy level is starting to rise.

I love the idea of professional sports competing with “amateur” college athletics. As usual the Euro’s are way ahead of us on this. Pro Soccer clubs in Europe have Academies for young talent which cover school, develop their game, AND pay them. I’d love to see American College sports get back to using real life college students rather than barely literate teenage semi pros who have their own set of handlers by the age of 15.
….and then watch the corrupt NCAA crash & burn.
Love Shaq! He is still the man!
i am sick and tired of hot photos of elizabeth hurley.
i wanna know more about her brains; what she reads and thinks about stuff 😏 – content of her character and all that 😜
So the solution to the USA’s problem of a low birth-rate is immigration. Ok, I feel like we can have a discussion of the pros and cons of that idea. What I never hear discussed though is what happens to the shithole countries (yeah, I said it) where these people come from? Does this not have a deleterious effect on the country from whence the person emigrated? Do these people not have any sympathy for said shithole country who is losing valuable labor?
Thanks, Joe, any column with Liz Hurley is a great one!
That Watson = Karen IG post wins the day 😂😂😂😂😂
There should be a photoshop of Watson with the Karen hairdo.
China requiring foreigners to get anal Covid tests reminds me of Pantera’s album “Vulgar Display of Power.” No self-respecting human should submit to this. They need to be stopped.
