I guess the AD got a quick lesson that not all lives matter (at least not all Redbird lives).

This is probably better for S&N as it surely will turn into a political thread.

Larry Lyons is from Pontiac IIRC and has basically been a Redbird/rural Illinoisian much of his life.

Actually a genuine, down to earth guy if you meet him. Just from a different walk of life than many of his student-athletes.

It is ironic that we are talking about all lives matter and then we start talking about cooking dead animals. We need some sports.

Ha! You are correct. I will cook veggies on the grill this weekend instead of meat. All animal lives matter (except ugly, squishy bugs).

We are all learning a lesson that if we talk about or believe anything else whatsoever that none of it matters.

Well, thank you. But my better half tries to eat healthy, whereas I will eat almost anything. Although I tend to gorge myself to the point of gut explosion, I do lift my pinkie finger while doing it (just so I can show some class). Watching me eat is not a pleasant sight (for the eyes, ears, and nose), so I will spare you the experience.

Of course! That, plus the Grey Poupon I slather on my weenies, and the fine Bordeaux wine I wash it all down with. 04-wine
