21. If you live anyplace near a Big 10 university be afraid.

If you thought the students' return to campuses brought an increase in COVID cases, just watch what happens when the football fans return. I worked for years in a Big 10 campus college store, and I have seen up close and personal what game day is like. It's bad. "Irresponsible" doesn't come close to describing what those fans are like during the entire weekend.

The big problem is that these universities say they plan to test athletes every day, but the community those fans invade doesn't have access to that testing. EVERY public establishment's employee will be exposed to COVID and they will keep working and spreading it.

We are all well and truly screwed in the name of sports and money.
