One of the greatest ironies of this fall could indeed be this: The hardest of hard headed sports nuts will be the main reason sports are all but eliminated from their lives this year.
If these fans are the rugged individualists who ignore distancing and masks, they will be the very ones who extend and intensify the spread of the virus. Weird huh? The only prayer we may have for our beloved NFL and Big Ten is probably very much in their hands. Better hang on the farm.
