Remember the beginning of the pandemic, when things happened like Steph Curry interview with dr. Anthony Faucic? How good was an example that was of cultural importance and able to bring important information about public health to the people?
Well, now we’ve come to the part of the program where Draymond Green defends his decision idiot teammate Andrew Wiggins not to be vaccinated against the virus that has now killed 700,000 Americans, more than the population of Washington, DC
“I’m not going to ask him: Did he get a polio vaccine?” said Green.
You don’t have to ask if he has had a polio vaccine, because of course he has a polio vaccine. Everyone got a polio vaccine! It’s necessary to do little things like… go to school. And that’s why WE HAVE NO MORE POLIO.
The past 18 months have been horrible, but also incredibly stupid. There is a reason why the vaccine is in demand around the world, and that all rich and powerful people (at least with brains in their heads) have been vaxxed.
It’s because the vaccine, which can no longer be called “experimental,” saves lives. The data is in. Anyone who ‘does their own research’ can stop. Unvaccinated people get much sicker in much higher numbers. Enough already.
In which the author does not bite the audacity of the headliner
Last week in this room, the words appeared, “Next week we’ll pick the whole damn slate,” and that was a lie. The college football picks in this are for entertainment purposes only, based entirely on feelings, and the only feeling associated with making choices for each game, then going back and checking who handled the spread is painful boredom.
Another feeling is relief, as fifth-place Iowa absolutely smothered previously undefeated Maryland, 51-14, Friday night, and if that game had been on Saturday afternoon, I definitely would have taken the Terps to clear up the turmoil. Now the Hawkeyes are heading home next week for a big game against Penn State, and I don’t know what to think because it’s Iowa home with a chance to derail a promising Penn State season, but it’s also Iowa with high hopes for itself and a clear path to the Big Ten title game.
But that’s next week. Let’s throw out a few picks for this week…
Texas -4 at TCU
No. 8 Arkansas +16.5 at No. 2 Georgia
No. 3 Oregon -7.5 at Stanford
No. 11 Ohio State -15 at Rutgers
UTSA-21 vs. UNLV
No. 4 Penn State -12.5 vs. Indiana
Last week: 3-3
