Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope you’re all feeling fine and fresh this week as we continue down this path of self-isolation together.
Not a ton of news this week, unfortunately. We’re still counting down the days until the Rams unveil their new uniforms and, after seeing the recent announcements by the Bucs and the Falcons, I really hope they lean towards Tampa Bay’s approach as opposed to Atlanta’s.
Stay safe, stay clean, and enjoy the links.
