Are you ready for some football? NFL Hall of Famers James Lofton and Warren Moon weigh in on COVID and the gridiron. What are the odds we'll truly have a season? Is it safe to play? Would they take the field if they were still playing? What about the role of professional athletes in the racial justice movement? And yes, we talk about Colin Kaepernick taking a knee, all that followed, and so much more.
Are you ready for some fun? I am, and so are they! Football fans know Lofton from his stellar career as a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles. Fans know Moon as the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, and of course, the Houston Oilers. And if you happen to be a fan of the Oilers or the Bills, and you know your football history, you know where I'm going -- the 1992 season. We even talk about that, so be sure and watch until the end! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, Google "biggest blown lead in NFL history" and then listen until the end of the podcast. You won't be sorry.
This is the perfect episode to put a period on our summer season as we go on hiatus for a few weeks. We tackle (pun intended) the issues of the day, but we also laugh a lot. I needed that. I'll bet you do, too. So enjoy, and please promise me this in the midst of all we are facing -- promise that you'll keep looking for the bright side of life and cherish every laugh, every tear, every moment that reminds us how magical it is to be alive and part of the human race.
