Happy NFL training camp is open day
It’s here…your favorite team can open its training camp today and the blue checkmarks will be focusing on the guys who are opting out while 99.9% of the league will report to work and get rolling towards the 2020 season which starts September 10. Yes, Dont’a Hightower has decided to opt out this year. Yes, there are other guys opting out, but none of that matters because we don’t have a single starting quarterback opting out and that’s what matters.
Blue checkmarks will spend the morning trying to bum you out. Tune them out. Don’t let them win the war in your brain. Remember, they want you to be miserable like they are. This whole charade is an attempt to play I told you so if the NFL season has to be delayed or called off.
Last night we had Bob Costas on CNN saying “we want sports, we don’t need sports.” Uh Bob, we need sports. The mental health of this country depends on sports. Livelihoods depend on sports. We need something to take our minds off all that’s wrong with our lives. Having been at this job for more than a decade and having talked to many people struggling with cancer and life issues, I feel way more qualified to talk about this than Bob.
This country 100% needs sports. And we get a little bit of respite today with training camps opening.

CRAPPY DEAL: To promote its TUESDAY DEAL, @KFCFrance offers terrible "Monday diet" coupons to help customers make room for Tuesday – for things such as a free empty bucket, 2 free glasses of water, one fry, or a leaf of lettuce. #marketing pic.twitter.com/gt10pxE6UK
