Anything that is related to professional sports. QUIT BUYING THE STUFF!
Unfortunately, no they won't.
Not too surprising, given that they have the WORST commissioner they've ever had in Goodell.
The Stars are in the finals? Wow, I didn’t even know, still won’t watch.
I only know because I got a ping on my phone when they won.
