I’m writing this about four hours before the first pitch of tonight’s game seven of the ALCS. I’m not going to watch the game. I’m too scared to watch. Besides, they usually do better when I don’t watch anyway.

I will be keeping tabs on this while watching MNF. Then I’ll switch to the ALCS when it’s safe to watch.

Unless they [REDACTED] in which case I’ll be unreachable for the rest of the night.

Anyway, the San Francisco 49ers are heavy favorites against the Minnesota Vikings tonight.

What: Monday Night Football

Where: US Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN

When: Monday, October 23, 2023 at 7:15 p.m. CDT
