Auchter's Art: It's finally over

John Auchter
Michigan Radio

You know what I was talking about, right? Don't make me say it. Please. I don't want to have to say it!

Okay, fine. The Electoral College results are in. The presidential election is over. It's final. It's final, final.

Okay, fine. It's not final, final, final. There could be a coup. There could be an alien invasion. There could be a majority of lawmakers breaking all norms and sworn promises to uphold the Constitution and hijacking the process before Biden and Harris are sworn in.

There. I acknowledged the rationally impossible. Happy? Can we please stop doing this now? Also, can we please stop paying attention to the deluded sycophants who insist on continuing to play this game? I mean, law enforcement should definitely keep their eyes on the ones threatening violence and insurrection. But everybody else? No more attention oxygen for you. Let's move on.

Hey, how about them Lions, huh? Making another go at getting better! Rebuilding, as it were. This time by hiring some former players (Chris Spielman, Barry Sanders) from back when they were kinda good. Might work, who knows? If you're hellbent on wishing for the highly improbable, consider giving this a try.
