Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting: 7/25/2020

Take off your pants. It’s time to S.N.O.T.

Can we just cancel the rest of 2020? So far this year we’ve endured Australia and New Zealand getting burned to a crisp, a drone strike that nearly sent us to war with Iran, Kobe Bryant died, the UK withdrew from the European Union, COVID-19 all but shut down life as we know it, the stock market took the worst tumble since 1987, Bill O’Brien traded away DeAndre Hopkins - the best wide receiver in the NFL - for pennies on the dollar, the Summer Olympics and NBA shut down, New York City alone endured more COVID-19 cases than any country on Earth, police brutality—which led to the murder of two people—ignited wide-spread civil unrest across the U.S., Texas endured more COVID-19 cases than any other country on Earth, and now.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, as these words are typed, Hurricane Hanna is about to hammer the South Texas coast - potentially sending a 3-4’ storm surge right at Corpus Christi, which still hasn’t fully recovered from Hurricane Harvey. Not to mention Corpus has an average elevation of only 7’.

Oh, and somewhere in there were murder hornets and some really weird guy who had something to do with tigers. Not sure how they tie into the overall plot line.

If this isn’t the wildest year on record, please tell us what was. Or feel free to find happier things to chat about, because it’s Saturday night and off-topic is all right.
