Your “The Devil You Know” Wednesday Evening Open Thread

Wednesday Motivational – Die On Your Feet, Not On Your Knees

Someone close to me died recently.  Sadly, it was his choice.  And as best I can tell he made that choice because he didn't like himself.  Or thought other people didn't like him.  Either way, that sucks.

Super Harbaugh Rivalry Bros: The Nika Riots

Wednesday Motivational – Please Do Whatever You Can

We're living in odd times right now.  This virus isn't going to be the end of mankind.  I promise.  But it has changed just about everyone's way of life.  At least for the time being. Restrictions on social interactions.  Restrictions on travel.  Nearly every sporting event cancelled or postponed. And school closings. When
