While Green Bay versus Baltimore will be interesting, the early slate of this week’s NFL games is not compelling. So come watch me on Fuente & Meerapfel: Meet The Professor.

For those unfamiliar with this live show, it started last year just as the pandemic was getting going. It’s still here and with a trio of hosts with some long résumés: José Blanco, Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. and Jeremiah Meerapfel.


I am guessing we’ll talk about halfwheel, the current state of the cigar industry, FDA and who knows what else.
