Mark Cuban predicted this week that the NBA could return to action as soon as mid-May, and it brought the taste back to my food and the color back to my eyes.

I know I’m preaching to the choir when I say I’m having sports withdrawals that can only be managed through excessive binge-drinking, so lets promise each other that we will never take even a fucking preseason game for granted for as long as we both shall live. And keep drinking nightly. Shit is fun.

Great. Kirk Herbstreit has some dystopian thoughts that may spiral you into chaos. Please be seated.

The “College Gameday” host went on ESPN radio Thursday to give his dire predication about how the Tom Hanks Virus will affect the upcoming college and professional football season.

“I’ll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I’ll be so surprised if that happens,” Kirk said.

Kirk, stop. I just watched the entire Air Bud franchise and I am too fragile at the moment for news of this gravity.


“You don’t all of the sudden come up with something in July or August and say, ‘Okay we’re good to go’ and turn ’em loose!”

Ok, as a defense mechanism, I have picked up my sword and joined the Fuck You Kirk You Aren’t A Doctor crowd on Twitter.

When I’m aligning myself with Darren Rovell, things may have gotten to a point of no return.
