The NFL has been busy tinkering with its schedule over the past couple of years. They took away one preseason game, added an extra regular season game and set up a Christmas triple header for 2022. The NFL is again expected to try something different in the future, in the form of adding a Black Friday game as soon as 2023, per Sports Business Journal.

The NFL is known for its Thanksgiving games, and adding a game on the day after Thanksgiving would just add to its dominance of the week/weekend. Just this past Thanksgiving, the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Dallas Cowboys delivered an estimated 38,531 million viewers, which made it the most-watched NFL regular season game on any network since 1990.

It would be Amazon that would reportedly stream this Black Friday game, however, as SBJ reported that the idea picked up steam while the company

Johnny Burt, a fixture at Utah high school sports events for decades, dies at 66

If you attended a high school football or basketball tournament in the state of Utah anytime in the past three or four decades, chances are you ran across Johnny Burt.

The short, skinny, bald, bespectacled man with an irascible sense of humor and an infectious smile was a ubiquitous presence at Utah High School Activities Association events for more than 30 years, serving as a volunteer, doing everything from handing out stat sheets to sweeping postgame floors. Along the way, he endeared himself to athletes, coaches, referees, statisticians, parents, fans, and everyone in between.

Burt died Wednesday morning from liver failure at the age of 66.

He was born with phenylketonuria (PKU), the build-up of an amino acid called phenylalanine in the body which can cause learning disabilities. The incurable disease is very rare, with fewer than 20,000 cases in the United States per year.

Burt grew up in South

Top Five PCSX2 Sports Games That Deserve Emulation Enhancement
