One of my favorite, absolutely not-so-guilty pleasures is Ask Polly, The Cut's Agony Aunt column written by the hilarious and unflinchingly wise Heather Havrilesky. Oftentimes, when people come seeking advice about love, dating, and the modern malaise of loneliness, I quite literally read it and weep. But this week's letter has made me, and the rest of the internet, so freaking angry.

Minnesota quarterback and griller of igneous rocks Kirk Cousins is getting the hang of working with rookie center Garrett Bradbury, who the Vikings selected in the first round of the draft back in April. The two will play together in a game for the first time on Friday, in a couple series of preseason action against the Saints. You would think that Cousins’s first, second, and third concerns will be how Bradbury handles protection duties against a live pass rush, but there you would be incorrect—most of what Cousins wanted to talk about when asked about Bradbury Wednesday afternoon was his young center’s swampy keister.
