Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, August 16

Jturner became the seventh Streaker to reach 35 games this season, meaning that they’ll receive a fun little email interview from yours truly within the next 24 hours. I know Streakland is just dying to learn some juicy personal tidbits!

You may remember that doorsrule failed to respond to my missive two weeks ago, only to see their Streak go down in flames at 36. The lesson: the former “BTS Report jinx” has clearly been reversed. Click “delete” at your own peril, Turner.
