COVID ‘Motoring Along At A Level Of Suck’ In Michigan, Ford Layoffs & Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum

Play episode

Rumors are swirling that high-school football could once again be on this fall, now that the Michigan High School Athletic Association has said they’ll follow other states’ examples if Gov. Gretchen Whitmer amends an executive order. Plus, President Trump said he spoke with the B1G commissioner about “immediately” starting the fall football season, because a) of course he did and b) there’s nothing else really going on right now that’s worthy of the attention of the president of the United States.

FOOTBALL!
