The Reds: It's 2005 all over again
Do we exist in a simulation?
The Pentagon is releasing a report confirming the existence of UFOs (60 minutes story, must-watch), and Artificial Intelligence is capable of creating original music by dead artists.
Former book delivery company Amazon is worth $3,000 a share and is preparing to broadcast NFL games. DVDs weren’t even around for the last Cincinnati playoff win – now a DVD delivery company, that no loner delivers DVD’s, is worth $30 billion. The world’s weird, but not all bad.
Summer approaches, promising full stadiums and music festivals. Hope exists throughout society as Covid dissipates in the United States.
With all that hope and optimism, only a simulation would be so cruel to put all of Cincinnati through the Deja Vu currently happening at Great American Ballpark.
