Shouldn't all competitive sports events in all forms be canceled

if we are unable as a society to accept the rules for something as fundamental as free and fair elections?

4. Yup. Keep the booze stores stocked and open, and the sports broadcasting...

Heaven forbid someone might read a book. Or even talk to each other over the phone...

6. Yep, nor critical thinking required for sporting events. It's win or lose.

7. But why ever concede?

Every team can just insist they won.

8. Players play to get paid, why you trying to deny Patrick Mahomes his $2.8M game check?

11. There might be more going on here if you're ...

... conspiracy minded and understand how much these programs hate each other.

Michigan canít win the game. (Sorry if there are Wolverine fans here, but we know thatís probably an accurate prediction).

BUT - they can keep OSU out of the playoffs if they cancel the game since OSU will not have played 6 games.

Someone on ESPN was talking about this the other day and said they wouldnít be surprised if MI did this.

15. I think they're gonna let 'em play somebody else.

It's either that, or just make up a new made-up rule to change the old made-up rule.

Call it the Never Mind rule.

14. Golf is the only sport I can think of for which there would be no good reason ...

to shut it down, as long as the matches are played without galleries.

16. My NY Jets would be undefeated if only "legal" games were counted.

The NFL doesn't check signatures. Roger Goddell should throw out all of the results so far.
