Tap Sports Bar – Thanksgiving

It’s the Sunday before Thanksgiving and I can hardly believe that I got an entire table to myself at the ultra popular Taps Sports Bar. Normally the wait is over an hour, but on this day when PG County regressed to Phase 2, only 25 percent occupancy was allowed, so the Taps was thinly attended, and I was treated like a VIP. And for the first time, the whole 2020 season, I had multiple screens in front of me allowing me to stay entranced at all six games at once. Multiple streams of football for my exclusive delirium and enjoyment. Games were tense especially since I had wagered a whole grand, money line on the Steelers – a team I actually cared very little about. Yeah Big Ben was having the season of his career and the Steelers were looking to go 10-0 Sure enough the men of steel dominated the Jags. And I was happy and relieved not to lose a grand.

My waitress, Lanaire, noticed my laptop open, betting on sports. Noticed she unabashedly wore a Cowboys lanyard. “So are you Boyz gonna beat Cousins & the Vikings?” I asked pejoratively. “Of course, hopefully Dalton is back and healthy and the offense has turned the corner.” “Cool, well so far I’m doing well on the early games. Getting ready to wager on the late games.” “Is that right. Well my son, Deonta is really good at picking on football. Do you want me to ask him what he thinks?” “Absolutely, would love another sounding board on football. This game is too crazy to pick ’em by your own self.”
