“America’s Got Talent” returned for its new season last night, and we already have an early sentimental favorite. His name is ARCHIE WILLIAMS, and he spent 37 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Archie was just 22 when he got arrested in 1982 for raping and stabbing a woman. He was convicted the following year. But in 2019, he was FINALLY exonerated by DNA evidence and released. Luckily, it isn’t just his story that’s captivating. His voice isn’t so bad either. He got four easy yesses for singing ELTON JOHN’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”.
JIMMY FALLON is in the hot seat AGAIN for impersonating CHRIS ROCK on “Saturday Night Live” 20 years ago . . . in blackface. This actually came up more than a year ago . . . but apparently, some NEW people discovered it and made it go viral again. There are people calling for Jimmy to be CANCELED . . . and others who just want an apology. And they got one. Jimmy Tweeted, quote, “In 2000, while on ‘SNL’, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this. “I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable.”
Justin and Hailey Bieber hit a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon with a cease-and-desist letter, after the doctor posted a video of Hailey and said she’d had plastic surgery, TMZ reports. Dr. Daniel Barrett posted the video comparing a 2011 image of Mrs. Bieber to one from 2016, claiming the changes to her face were impossible without cosmetic procedures, specifically her nose. The Biebers were not amused, and claim the good doc used Hailey’s image without permission, as well as Justin’s song “Sorry” in the clip posted on TikTok last weekend. The Biebers are demanding Barrett remove the video, claiming a number of violations, including, “misrepresentation, defamation, slander, false light, violation of rights of publicity, copyright infringement, trademark and service mark infringement.” Barrett told TMZ that he won’t take it down, and the video is intended to educated people about plastic surgery.

It’s too early to say if the COVID-19 pandemic will permanently change how people think about illness and health in public spaces . . . but one thing is for certain: We’re all getting a glimpse inside HOWIE MANDEL’s brain. Howie is a notorious germaphobe with extreme OCD . . . and YOUR fear of the outside with the coronavirus running amok is his DEFAULT SETTING. Howie said, quote, “This is what’s in my head each and every day . . . every hour of my 64 years on earth. This is it. This is my nightmare, this is how I live and now the world has joined me in my nightmare.” He joked that he initially “felt responsible for the shortage of PPE,” because he’d been hoarding “gloves and masks and hazmat suits for the last 50 years.” But he’s since given them all away to people who need them. He added, quote, “I can’t wait for this to be over . . . I hope we wake up, and it’s just [my nightmare again] and not everyone’s.”
JOHN KRASINSKI explained his decision to sell “Some Good News” to CBS during an Instagram chat yesterday with RAINN WILSON. He says it was NOT about the money. Basically, John is going to have to get back to his regular career soon, so there was no way for him to keep doing it by himself. So it was either sell it, or scrap it. And he’s excited that CBS News, one of the “biggest news programs in America,” is going to make it part of their “permanent news cycle.” He also says he WILL host some episodes.
Someone Tweeted something recently that will shake your faith in everything you thought you knew. JOHN CENA and JASON EARLES are almost EXACTLY THE SAME AGE. Jason played MILEY CYRUS’ brother Jackson on “Hannah Montana”. He was born April 26th, 1977. Cena was born three days earlier, on April 23rd. They’re both 43 years old. Cena guest-starred on “Hannah Montana” 10 years ago, when both he and Jason were 33. Of course, Jason was playing a KID . . . and he definitely looked it.

This may not surprise you, but ELVIS PRESLEY had a rhinestone-studded JOCKSTRAP . . . with his initials on the band. And it’s FOR SALE. It’s hitting the auction block courtesy of Paul Fraser Collectibles, and it’s expected to fetch $36,000. The auction house says, quote, “[It’s] Extravagant. Absurd. Sexually potent. This rhinestone-studded jockstrap is pure Elvis Presley. “I’m sure the new owner won’t be able to resist wearing it out on a Saturday night . . . the Elvis magic will work wonders, I’m certain. This is a rare opportunity to own an intimate piece of the King.”
On Tuesday, The Doobie Brothers followed virtually every other band in the free world by postponing their 2020 tour to 2021. The tour, which was supposed to start on June 9 in West Palm Beach, Florida, will now start there on June 17, 2021. The tour was supposed to have marked the band’s 50th anniversary, and was set to reunite Michael McDonald, Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons and John McFee for the first time in nearly 25 years. That lineup is still scheduled to hit the road when the band ventures out in 2021
Spotify eliminated the limit of 10,000 songs you can save in your music library on the streaming service. Now you can “like” an unlimited number of tracks. Spotify remains the leader in the streaming music competition with 130 million subscribers worldwide, compared to Apple Music’s estimated 60 million and Amazon Music’s 55 million. But for a long time, Spotify’s users – 286 million counting those who use the free version of the service – had been asking to be able to save more songs. Previously, users could save only 10,000 items in their Spotify library. When that limit was hit, they got a message saying, “Epic collection my friend. There’s no more room in Your Library. To save more, you’ll need to remove some songs or albums.” All Spotify users, whether they use the service’s free or premium tier, can now like and save as many songs as they choose. The number of songs in a playlist remains at 10,000. Premium users can still download 10,000 songs onto five different devices for offline listening. Any Spotify users still getting a message about the 10,000 song limit will get the software update soon, Spotify says.
Don’t start shouting out answers…”Rolling Stone” put together a list of the greatest debut singles. They did NOT count solo debuts by already well-known artists, but singles by new bands that happened to include established artists WERE fair game. They also stuck to MAINSTREAM releases . . . so I will give you the artist and you give me their debut single until we get to #1 then youre guessing

Congratulations are in order for the Central Division Champion St. Louis Blues! Confused? Well – The NHL announced its Return to Play Plan on Tuesday with the Stanley Cup Playoffs that will include 24 teams. The tournament will begin with a 16-team, eight-series Qualifying Round and a round-robin competition among the top four teams in each conference to determine seeding for the First Round. The 12 qualifying teams from the Eastern and Western conferences were determined by points percentage as of the hault of the season. The format for the playoffs was determined in meetings including executives from the NHL and NHL Players’ Association, and five players. The qualifying round and round-robin will be held at two hub cities to be identified — one for the 12 participating Eastern Conference teams and one for the 12 Western Conference teams – and begin at a date to be determined. Candidates for the hub cities include Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Edmonton, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Pittsburgh, Toronto and Vancouver. The Commissioner said the decision on the hub cities and when the Stanley Cup Playoffs will begin will depend on COVID-19 conditions, testing ability and government regulations. Each team will be permitted to travel a maximum of 50 personnel, including players, coaches and staff, to its hub city. Games in the qualifying round will be played with playoff overtime rules. The round-robin games will be played with regular-season overtime and shootout rules with ties in the standings broken by regular-season points percentage. After the round-robins and the qualifying round, the conference-based playoffs will be continue in the two hub cities. Each of the winners of the qualifying round will advance to face one of the round-robin teams in the first round. The Return to Play Committee is discussing whether those first-round series will be set through seeding or by bracket. The Return to Play Committee also has yet to decide the length of the first-round and second-round series, and whether the second-round series will be determined through seeding or by bracket. The conference finals and Stanley Cup Final will each be a best-of-7 series. The sites of the conference finals and Stanley Cup Final have yet to be determined, but they are expected to be played in one of the hub cities.
The top teams that will receive the first round bye are…in the East…Boston, Tampa, Washington, and Philly. And in the West it’s the Blues, Colorado, Vegas, and Dallas. Check out the video on the blog that the NHL put out that shows how the “first round” matchups would be set up.
People are desperate for LIVE sports . . . and “The Match: Champions for Charity” provided that over the weekend. Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning took on Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. It aired on TNT, TBS, truTV, and HLN, and averaged 5.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched golf telecast in cable TV history. In the end, Tiger and Manning outdueled Phil and Brady, partially because Brady was really, REALLY bad. Which is something we rarely get to say about him. Brady did have a couple of bright spots . . . after six holes of misery, he hit the SHOT OF HIS LIFE by holing out from the fairway, at least 130 yards away. That was good for birdie. Golfer Brooks Koepka had Tweeted a promise of a $100,000 donation to his charity foundation if Brady made a par on any front-nine hole, and that shot made him pay. Brady also made a long putt for eagle on the 11th hole. But the rest of the day was forgettable for Brady. Due to the nature of the competition, there wasn’t a traditional score. It started as “best ball,” then switched to a “modified alternate shot” format at the turn. Tiger and Manning were up by one at the end of 18 holes, so they were crowned the winners. They took it wire-to-wire . . . but Phil and Brady did make it close at the end. The event raised more than $20 million for COVID-19 relief. Also, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said he’d donate 100,000 meals if anyone hit it within 12 feet off the tee on the 16th hole. It ended up being 300,000 meals, because Phil, Brady, and Manning all did it.
Two months after the revived XFL abruptly suspended and then cancelled its inaugural season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the now-bankrupt spring football league may have found new life. The XFL’s investment bank is currently in “active discussions” with dozens of potential purchasers who want to fund and restart the league for a 2021 season. In mid-April, days after laying off nearly its entire staff, the XFL filed for bankruptcy. According to many, there is a huge market for the league not only to fill a spring 2021 schedule but prevent any competitors from seizing on an opportunity to supplement the NFL with additional professional football. Twenty different bidders, to be exact, have executed non-disclosure agreements to negotiate. Six more are in the process of doing so. And all indications are that all potential purchasers intend to try to bring the XFL back onto the turf — and TV — by the spring.
While the NBA has yet to settle on a plan to resume the 2019-20 season, canceling the remainder of the regular season and skipping immediately to the 16-team playoffs appears to be gaining momentum. ESPN is reporting that there is a “good chance” the league will do a 16-team playoff, possibly reseeding without factoring in conferences. This is apparently something the commissioner wanted all along. The plan would be to seed 1 through 16 in the postseason and go that route. There’s no excuse with travel or anything like that. It would have to pass an owner vote, and that means a bunch of Eastern Conference owners would have to agree to it.” In a 16-team structure, there would be no impact in respect to how many representatives each conference would have in the playoffs if the teams were reseeded 1-16. The NBA’s 16-best records are split evenly between the East and West. The reseeding would, however, drastically alter the matchups. Here is how a 16-team proposal—based on the teams’ records at the time of the season’s postponement in March—would look:
(1) Milwaukee Bucks vs. (16) Orlando Magic
(8) Miami Heat vs. (9) Oklahoma City Thunder
(4) Los Angeles Clippers vs. (13) Dallas Mavericks
(5) Boston Celtics vs. (12) Philadelphia 76ers
(3) Toronto Raptors vs. (14) Memphis Grizzlies
(6) Denver Nuggets vs. (11) Indiana Pacers
(7) Utah Jazz vs. (10) Houston Rockets
(2) Los Angeles Lakers vs. (15) Brooklyn Nets
There would be no extra gate receipts with every game housed in one central location without fans, and there wouldn’t be any issues with travel.
Georgetown head coach and NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing has returned home from the hospital after being diagnosed with COVID-19. Ewing, 57, had announced his diagnosis Friday, urging others that the coronavirus “should not be taken lightly.” The statement from Georgetown added that he was the only member of the basketball team or coaching staff to test positive for COVID-19. A number of figures around basketball tested positive for coronavirus during the pandemic, including Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant, and New York Knicks governor James Dolan, among others.
Jerry Sloan, who starred for the Chicago Bulls before failing to topple them in the NBA Finals as the head coach of the Utah Jazz, passed away Friday at the age of 78 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. Sloan was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009 after coaching the Jazz to 15 consecutive playoff appearances and a pair of Western Conference titles. Led by Karl Malone and John Stockton, his conference-champion Jazz squads came up short in two Finals tries against Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, a rivalry that was recently featured in ESPN’s Last Dance. After finishing his playing career with the Bulls, Sloan accepted the head-coaching job at his alma mater, Evansville, in March 1977–but backed out after five days for personal reasons. In December of that year, the collegiate team’s plane crashed after takeoff, killing everyone aboard.
Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN college football analyst Ryan Leaf was arrested Friday and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. Leaf was taken into custody and released later that day on $5,000 bail. He now has a court date set for September 25. Leaf had a brief and unspectacular 4-year NFL career, and later did jail time after being arrested for breaking into a home to steal prescription drugs. He worked for ESPN before the 2019 college football season, and also worked for the Pac-12 Network last year, as well as hosting his own SiriusXM show.
NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said on Monday the league’s pass-interference replay system, “failed miserably,” in 2019. Pass interference replay was introduced into the NFL after a missed call in the 2018 NFC Championship Game between the Saints and Rams. But the implementation of PI replay wasn’t well-received, and just 13 of 81 pass-interference challenges were successful in 2019. The NFL opted to get rid of the pass interference replay system for 2020. The league is now considering using a “sky judge,” who would serve as a booth umpire for each officiating crew. Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is set to offer Mike Tyson more than $20 million to come out of retirement and compete in a fight for the organization. The president of the organization said: “I think I know what we need to do to make this thing happen.” The company offered the 53-year-old $20 million earlier this month, but its next attempt will include more money as well as charitable donations. Tyson hasn’t revealed his plans for an upcoming fight but said there are plenty of options. MMA star Tito Ortiz said he has been contacted by Tyson, while Evander Holyfield also reportedly is considering a third bout. MMA legend Wanderlei Silva is another potential opponent.
Henry Cejudo (Seh-Who-Do) has officially vacated the UFC bantamweight title after announcing his retirement at UFC 249. UFC released its updated rankings Monday, but Cejudo was not listed and the bantamweight champion was blank. Cejudo, who has won titles at both bantamweight and flyweight, defeated Dominick Cruz to defend his belt before announcing his retirement in the Octagon.
If the idea of late-night batting practice or eating a meal at home plate sounds appealing, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos are willing to make that a reality. The team, the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, has listed Blue Wahoos Stadium in Pensacola, Florida, on Airbnb. The Blue Wahoos say it is the first time that a baseball stadium is available on the rental service. For $1,500 per night (plus fees), up to 10 guests are granted access to the stadium, which includes use of the team’s clubhouse, batting cage and field, along with a batting practice setup. Guests are welcome to hit from home plate, play catch in the outfield, run the bases, enjoy a picnic in the outfield, or find other creative uses for the field!” the listing reads. The bedroom next to the clubhouse sleeps 10, and a staff member will stay on site for security and to answer questions. The Airbnb offer is one of several alternative uses for the stadium amid the ongoing pause to the major and minor league baseball seasons due to the coronavirus pandemic. The baseball field is offered on weekends as a nine-hole disc golf course designed by team co-owner
