Steve Helber/Associated Press

The unthinkable happened Sunday when Alex Smith played in an NFL game again. 

Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury nearly two years ago that required 17 surgeries to rectify. When the Washington Football Team’s Kyle Allen, who started instead of Dwayne Haskins Jr., endured a head-on collision with Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, Smith entered the contest and didn’t leave. 

In the 30-10 loss, the 36-year-old signal-caller completed nine of 17 passes for 37 yards. But Smith’s actual performance didn’t matter to many, including his counterpart on the other sideline Sunday. 

“That is really one of the most amazing things, I thinknot only that we’ve ever seen, but one of the most amazing things in football history, is him getting back from that injury and coming back,” Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff told reporters

Can The Airline Magazine Make A Comeback After Covid-19?

The airlines are starting to recover from the devastating toll of the coronavirus. While aircraft retirements and crew layoffs continue, passenger traffic is inching up to 40% of what it was in 2019. But while Congressional support has kept most US airlines from failing so far, no such help has been extended to the airline magazine.

Interestingly, this fear may not have been founded. “Being made of paper, the magazine is also one of the most hygienic products on an aircraft, due to

Week 2 Takeaways: Big Dak Comeback, Falcons Blow It, Josh Allen on Fire

Reacting and overreacting to everything that happened in the Week 2 Sunday afternoon games…

Things That Made Me Giddy

The Come-Dak. Dak-Back? Dak Had a Comeback: After a complete meltdown for Dallas in the first quarter that included three lost fumbles and a failed fake punt, Prescott led touchdown drives on four of their first five second-half possessions and moved them into position for the winning field-goal. And he did it all with both starting tackles missing, and after briefly leaving with an injury himself. On the day, he was 34-for-47 for 450 as the Cowboys rolled up 570 yards of offense and 30 second-half points.

Mike McCarthy’s Texas Instruments Calculator: The one he bought during his year out of football to discover analytics says his team just improved its win percentage by 500 points.

Facebook Campus Hotel a Bet on Comeback for Business Travel

(Bloomberg) — Corporate travelers, typically back on the move after Labor Day, are still hunkered down at home, with little telling when they’ll start seeing clients again or if the embrace of video conferencing will end the need to get on the road at all.

It’s a chilling prospect for the hotel industry, which leans heavily on corporate travel departments to fill rooms at full rates. Still, some are banking on a big future for business travel.

CitizenM, a Dutch lodging brand backed by Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, is moving ahead with plans to open its tech-forward boutique hotels across the U.S. It’s a bet that remote work will actually increase the need for employers to bring scattered staff together.

“The world is a different place now, but the demand generators we would have had pre-pandemic have only gotten bigger,” citizenM managing director Ernest Lee said in an
