Gretch The Wretch Makes New Friends

Devious, despicable, disgusting Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer stated she is “glad” the Big Ten conference will not be playing football in the fall. Pretty smart move for a state which has two perennial contenders – Michigan and Michigan State – and lives on football

The Great Villianess of Big Ten fans everywhere, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, has officially spoken on the conference canceling fall football and is “glad” at the direction taken by her partner in crime, commissioner Kevin Warren.

“I was glad that the Big Ten took the leadership role that they did,” Whitmer told members of the media on Monday, MLive reports. “Obviously they’ve got huge universities and they’ve got people who are on all of these campuses that are working to try to address the COVID pandemic that we’re all struggling with.”

“Football is a very intimate sport where you are up in one another’s faces,” Whitmer added. “That’s what makes it inherently risky, so that’s my concern. I love football. I wanted to be a sports broadcaster. I don’t like not seeing football this fall, but I’m glad that the Big Ten took the leadership they did and the (Michigan) High School Sports Association did as well.”

Personally, I would like to see all pro, and most college, sports cancelled until 2021, and I’m a college football fan. The shortened seasons of MLB, the NHL, the NBA, etc. have been awful, and the ratings have proven that theory.

That said, Whitmer is an idiot. Sure, she may be glad about Big 10 football going on hiatus, but Michigan football fans – and there are millions of them – are not going to remember this when the twat is up for reelection.

NCAA Football Sees Sad Trombone

Thanks to the Wuhan Virus – wow, it’s been all Wuhan so far today – the NCAA’s Big 10 and Pac-12 conferences have made the decision to either postpone or outright cancel their 2020 football seasons.

As the 2020 college football season hangs in the balance, coaches and players are using social media to voice their support for allowing the season to commence, using hashtags like #WeWantToPlay and #FIGHT.

Oh yes, everyone else in America needs to quarantine in their homes, watch their jobs disappear, and lose their freedom, but by all means, let the “student-athletes” play football.

“With the Big Ten and Pac-12 expected to cancel or postpone their seasons on Tuesday, the rumors have earned a response from some of the biggest names in the sport who took to Twitter to share their stance on the coming season,” NBC Washington reported Monday.

Nothing says impartiality or “follow the science” like head coaches sticking up for their players enormous salaries. Like teachers and the media, let’s celebrate our brave football coaches.

“I love our players & believe it is my responsibility to help them chase their dreams, both collectively & individually,” said Penn State University head football coach James Franklin. “I am willing to fight WITH them & for our program! #WeAre.”

YouAre… canceled. At least I hope so, because with the possible exception of Ohio State, Penn State is my least favorite football program. I’d be happy if the entire program folded.

UPDATE: The Big 10 officially “postponed” the football season with plans of playing in the spring… months after the college bowl games. Seriously, does no one in this country have a plan for the Wu-Flu?
