Happy Thanksgiving Fear The Wall!

Borussia Dortmund are out of the Champions League and I’m sure we’ll spend plenty of time talking about that fact, so I’m just gonna spend this Daily Bee pretending that the Champions League isn’t a thing. If that’s a problem, I don’t particularly care. To all our American readers, enjoy your holiday, and to the rest of you, get back to work!

Joshua Kimmich Tests Positive for COVID-19

Anyway, Joshua Kimmich has made the news quite a lot recently, for all the wrong reasons, having been loudly stupid about the COVID-19 vaccine. In what is a totally predictable turn of events, the guy that didn’t get the vaccine has now got COVID-19. Astonishing stuff. He will now miss Bayern’s game against BVB on December 4th.

There’s a host of reasons for vaccine hesitancy, some more justifiable than others, but I have little sympathy for professional athletes who have access to exceptional medical expertise on a daily basis, and with whom they put a great deal of trust in to keep them fit and healthy. Kimmich is being a selfish idiot, and he should know much better. I hope he recovers fully and has a change of heart, instead of encouraging more of this nonsense. I also hope that Bayern Munich are able to limit the spread of the virus, and no one suffers as a result of all this.

What are you thankful for, Americans? Get back to work everybody else, this question isn’t for you.
