KENDALL JENNER now has her own tequila brand, called 818 Tequila, after the area code of Calabasas, California.  And like all celebrities, she claims she was intimately involved in its development. In an Instagram post, she says, quote, “For almost 4 years I’ve been on a journey to create the best-tasting tequila . . . I think we’ve done it!” “This is all we’ve been drinking for the last year and I can’t wait for everyone else to get their hands on this to enjoy it as much as we do!” Watch the video…not 100% sure is a tequila fan – instagram

TYLER POSEY from “Teen Wolf” likes to be naked.  But that doesn’t mean he wants his OnlyFans to be about JUST that. He says, quote, “You really feel like an object on OnlyFans.  I’m trying my hardest to be artistic as possible with the content I put out ’cause I don’t want it to just be porn, you know? “That’s not what I do and I don’t want to take it away from the people that are doing that.  I just want to be artistic and stay in touch with my fans.” He adds, quote, “If I’m going to be somewhat nude, I want to not take myself seriously and be kind of funny.” Click Here

BOB ODENKIRK from “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” has an ACTION movie coming out, where he does a lot of hand-to-hand fighting.  If you can believe that. It’s called “Nobody”, and Bob had to work out like crazy just to be in good enough shape for it.  He even released a training video to prove how much work he put in. 

BRANDON FLOWERS from THE KILLERS recently admitted to wrecking his bike.  He was injured, but it sounds like everything is okay.  So after the surgery, he’s expecting to be in a sling for six weeks. The Killers had planned on touring in May, but that’s not looking too likely, considering Brandon’s surgery . . . and, you know, the never-ending pandemic. In any event, the band is gearing up to put out another album, even though their last, “Imploding the Mirage”, just came out six months ago.  Brandon said the new album is, quote, “pretty much done.” 

What movie scene is this? On the 25th anniversary of “Happy Gilmore” obviously a great movie. A golf movie. And the scene when Happy Gilmore does the 3 step drive on the tee. Adam Sandler, with full beard looking like a thinner Bert Kreisher did the ole 3 step shot for giggles. Shooter McGavin himself even responded a bit. Actor Christopher McDonald stays in character the whole time! Click here

We talked yesterday about national days for pretty much everything. Have we settled on a date for National Elbow Day? February 27th is Pokemon Day.  To celebrate why wouldn’t Post Malone be headlining a free virtual concert to help  celebrate 25 years of Pokemon. Ironically Post Malone says he has been a Pokemon fan for a long time. You can watch the free concert on YouTube, Twitch, and the official site at 6 central  on February 27. More details about P25 Music will be revealed at the end of the concert.

Machine Gun Kelly is taking some romance cues from Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie by suggesting he wears girlfriend Megan Fox’s blood around his neck over Valentines weekend. Sharing an Instagram gallery Sunday, MGK wrote “I wear your blood around my neck.  My bloody Valentine” and followed it up with a red rose, blood drop and knife emoji. One of the photos in the gallery looked like a glass vial carrying blood. Fox didn’t reciprocate the love by posting about bodily fluids on Valentines Day, but did write a poem for Machine Gun Kelly.

Correct me if I am wrong here…there is NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, and NCIS New Orleans. CBS is now going to…Hawaii. And they will call it??? Gary…no NCIS Hawaii.  The OG series is awaiting word on season 19 and, they could be wrapping it up soon because Mark Harmon is at the end of his deal. NCIS is the No. 1 global TV series in the world, having been syndicated both domestically and internationally, where it is licensed in more than 200 countries and territories. Who knows what NCIS stands for? (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Within the Department of the Navy, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is the civilian federal law enforcement agency uniquely responsible for investigating felony crime, preventing terrorism and protecting secrets for the Navy and Marine Corps.

A few weeks ago, Buffalo Bill’s house from “Silence of the Lambs” sold, after having been listed for around $300,000.  The house is located in Perryopolis, which is near Pittsburgh. The new owner plans to turn the home into a bed and breakfast, which means it would be possible for YOU to spend the night at the house where Clarice Starling finally caught Buffalo Bill. Bill’s underground lair wasn’t filmed at the house . . . but the new owner has a background as an art director and prop stylist, and he’s planning to recreate the well to give fans and visitors a photo opportunity.  And, presumably, to make a little extra cash off the whole thing.

Disney+ streaming service will reach more subscribers than Netflix in 2026…in India. Digital TV Research projects that the number of subscribers to Disney+ will reach 294 million in 2026, exceeding the 286 million that it estimates Netflix will reach then. “However, Disney+ will only have more subs than Netflix in one country — India: 98 million Disney+ Hotstar subscribers versus 13 million for Netflix,”  They are saying that global revenue for Disney+ will hit $20.76 billion by 2026, half of Netflix’s $39.52 billion. The management teams of Disney and Netflix have vowed to continue investing in original programming, which have helped drive subscriber gains. Disney+ has benefited from such originals as The Mandalorian, while Netflix has seen strong viewing for the likes of Bridgerton and The Crown.

A 5-year-old girl left critically injured and in a coma following a crash this month involving former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid is now awake. The news was delivered Monday in a brief post about Ariel Young, who has been hospitalized since the Feb. 4 crash. Reid, son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, was the team’s outside linebackers coach. He was initially placed on administrative leave immediately following the crash, but he is no longer employed by the team. His contract expired in recent days and was not renewed. Police said the crash happened near the team’s training complex next to Arrowhead Stadium when Britt Reid’s truck slammed into two vehicles on the side of a highway entrance ramp, injuring Ariel and another child inside one of the cars. Reid underwent surgery for injuries not detailed by the team

The 2021 Hall of Fame Game officially has a date and time. The game, which was not played last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, will kick off at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5. The Steelers will play the Dallas Cowboys — the two scheduled participants from last season — in the annual preseason opener. The announcement was made in a Twitter post Monday by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Heading into the final season of his contract with the Los Angeles AngelsAlbert Pujols is unsure if he will continue playing beyond 2021.   He said he hasn’t decided if he will retire from Major League Baseball after this year. He said QUOTE “It’s my last year under contract, but that doesn’t mean I can’t keep playing. I haven’t closed that door. I’m taking it day by day, year by year, but you haven’t heard from my mouth that I’m going to retire, or that it’s going to be my last year, or that I’m going to keep playing. I haven’t said any of that. When that time comes, we’ll see.” 

If the NBA lockout of 2011 had gone on any longer, we might have seen basketball icon LeBron James on the field for the NFL. James was offered a chance to try out for both the Cowboys and Seahawks during the lockout ten years ago.  That year, Coach Pete Carroll even sent the then-26-year-old a custom Seahawks jersey with his invitation. James says he even tweaked his training and began running routes while considering an NFL career. James is very confident he would have padded up for an NFL team, saying “I would have made the team. I would have tried out, but I would have made the team.”

There’s something enticing about placing a bet on a long-shot. Sure, it likely won’t work out, but the possibility of a giant payday is sometimes just too much to turn down.   But there’s betting a heavy underdog, and then there’s placing a $10,000 bet on the Washington Wizards to win the NBA championship. The 2021 NBA title, to be exact. The same 2021 season in which the Wizards are 8-17. Their longest winning streak is two games, and they have picked up victories against just two teams above .500. Should the bet hit, the ticket would pay out $5 million in winnings.  Considering the Wizards haven’t put together a stretch of four wins in seven games all year, it’s pretty likely that $10,000 ticket is worthless. Washington hasn’t advanced past the second round of the postseason since 1979, either, which makes things a bit trickier.

Olympic swimmer Scott Miller was in custody on Tuesday and charged with drug trafficking after Australian police seized meth valued at $1.6 million and accused him of directing a criminal syndicate. Police arrested 45-year-old Miller at their Sydney homes after finding meth concealed in eight candles in January. Miller was the director of a criminal syndicate. Miller won a silver medal in the 100-meter butterfly at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. He was also a member of the Australian 4 x 100-meter medley relay team in Atlanta which won bronze. He also won a world championship gold medal in the 100-meter butterfly at Rio de Janeiro in 1995.

Mizzou looked to rebound after they WERE ranked 10th and lost to an unranked team.  So, now ranked 20th, they headed to Georgia for another game against the unranked Bulldogs.  And….they lead at halftime.  And…then they didn’t.  Mizzou lost AGAIN 80-70 and will more than likely be bounced from the Top 25 before their game Saturday against South Carolina.  SLU on the other hand won again beating LaSalle 78-57.  Their next game is Friday against Dayton.  5th ranked Illinois continues to roll, they beat Northwestern 73-66.  Their next game is Saturday at Minnesota.

And finally….Since the MLB Draft started in 1965, the Cardinals have done wonders uncovering franchise icons through the trade market. Brock, Smith, Wainwright, Edmonds and several others were acquired and starred in St. Louis only after first being discovered by other clubs. But who are the Cards most incredible draft picks?  Here’s the top 5.  First – some honorable mentions…Ray Lankford, Lance Lynn, Jack Flaherty, Kolten Wong, and Matt Carpenter.  #5 is Bob Forsch drafted 594th overall in 1968.  #4 is Keith Hernandez drafted 776th in 1971.  #3 is Ted Simmons drafted 10th overall in 1967.  An then…#2 is Yadier Molina drafted 113th overall in 2000.  Followed by…Albert Pujols drafted 402nd overall in 1999
