NFL Week 2: Mono Edition

Apparently Sam Darnold has mono and will miss Monday’s game. I’m not even sure what mono is.

Literally my only awareness of it is the above Wayne’s World reference.

@epimer what is mono please?

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.

Mono (stylised as MONO ) is a Japanese instrumental band, formed in 1999 in Tokyo. The band consists of Takaakira “Taka” Goto (electric guitar, glockenspiel), Hideki “Yoda” Suematsu (electric guitar, glockenspiel), Dahm Majuri Cipolla (drums), and Tamaki Kunishi (bass guitar, electric guitar, piano, glockenspiel).

Glad I could help. I will now be muting this sports thread, as is traditional.

Honestly, frost bite now mono. What other weird maladies will strike NFL stars this season?

It’s not lupus

Going to start Curtis Samuel in both my fantasy leagues this week as my flex guys have tough match ups. Fully expecting zero catches out of him.

Mono is glandular fever.

Also known as the Kissing Disease, hence the cute big eyelashes on the Giant Microbe version

Dolphins are an absolute disgrace. Fans are paying good money to see… what exactly? This shouldn’t be how you run a team.

Been ‘supporting’ them since the mid 90s, but seriously considering going all in on the Chargers instead. Felt like more of a fan of them for at least the last 4 or 5 years anyway.

You’ll probably be upping the Chargers fanbase number by about 10% if you do switch

Anyone still pretending concussion isn’t a thing? Bill? Bill?

Really looking forward to Boogie Nights 2, heard great things so far.

Just in a pub watching the NFL and they’ve just put it on after the cricket. Sit down for 2 minutes and a guy there goes it’s for wusses and that American’s haven’t invented any sport, just adjust them. I just tell him, “not really” . How long till I tell this guy to take a hike?

can’t wait to see a gif of that failed handshake routine by brown there.

As soon as the cardinals figure out how to score a td in the first 3 quarters, they’ll be unstoppable

DK Metcalf is legit. Inside or outside, looking flipping awesome
