Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wouldn't it be funny if 2,3,4 and 5 lost today on the gridiron?

Since you have a cat, it’s probably the safe bet. Christmas tree=cat toy.
