The XFL just held a conference call in which all employees were told the league is suspending operations. Said one: "The word they used was 'shut down'."— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) April 10, 2020

I really think I did some of the best work in social media this year, so this really hurts. If you need someone for social, written content, meme goofin’ or anything at all, I’m your guy.
