Well, looks like we found our strategy for making sure March Madness goes off without a hitch. If boozing on spring break can kill the coronavirus, then there’s no reason it can’t do the same for college basketball.
We’re not drinking anymore because we want to get a buzz and enjoy the games. We’re drinking for our literal health and safety.

Luckily, this would seem like an easy experiment to test out. The tournament will be here soon enough, and I guess I’ll just have to have a few beers.
Remember, I’m not drinking those beers for me. I’m drinking them for the safety of America. Am I a hero? That’s something we’ll let the history books decide.
Now, grab a gold one and protect yourself.
