Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlemen, unless you are Chase Claypool. The Steelers wide receiver had a lot of people on social media scratching their heads after he wasted precious seconds in the final moments of Pittsburgh’s loss to the Vikings on Thursday night. Claypool had multiple boneheaded moments throughout the night and it’s going to be a rough film session when he sits down to rewatch the game. For the rest of us, we get to enjoy the day knowing it is Friday and the weekend is upon us — including the final UFC pay-per-view of the year with two title fights.
