  1. Oh dear. I hope they survive. Amazing how our government shuts everything down for the minority. Thanks to the media they scare everyone to go to the hospital with their sniffles and coughs thinking their going to die. Hospitals are overwhelmed because of fear! Imagine if everyone ran to the hospital when the got a cold!

  2. 1. Lock
    2. Rypien
    3. Driskel
    4. Bortles

    Ok, KRDO, it’s not really that hard to count to FOUR…..
