Video Transcript

EMMANUEL ACHO: There are bigger things going on than sports right now. Like, I'm glad sports are down. And I'm a sports guy. You can tell-- you can cut this for my bosses, for the world to see. Like, there's a presidential election going on. There there's a pandemic going on. I would hope to God that a game, which all sports are is a game, are lesser important than lives.

So when people were are like, oh, sports are down. I'm like, bravo. Because at least that shows me that we have our priorities right in this country. Sports will pick back up. They always do. So I don't even have an issue with sports being down. When you talk about things being political, life and death-- it's not political. It's just-- it's just not.
