James Gunn, who’s now in charge of the DC Extended Universe, thinks superhero movies have gotten lazy and generic. Gunn said. “And they have gotten to the place where, ‘Oh, it’s a superhero, let’s make a movie about it.’ And then, ‘Oh, let’s make a sequel, because the first one did pretty well,’ and they aren’t thinking about, ‘Why is this story special? What makes this story stand apart from other stories? What is the story at the heart of it all? Why is this character important? What makes this story different that it fills a need for people in theaters to go see?'” Gunn’s Marvel swan song Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 is the second-biggest box office success of the year so far, but would-be blockbusters like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and DC’s own The Flash have struggled with audiences – LINK

Remember when I mentioned that Wainwright allowed 7 runs in three innings on Saturday in England and after the game he took responsibility for it? What I did not know he did after the game was..deactivate his twitter account. Polo Ascencio, a Spanish-language broadcaster for the team and friend of the Rizz Show, made the paper this morning because he had tweeted photos of Wainwright interacting with fans and “spreading joy” in London at the same time as “some Cardinals fans decided to hate, be ruthless against him.” Apparently twitter acted like twitter and Adam had enough. Wainwright is in his final season with the Cardinals and sits at 198 career wins. Only two Cardinals have more, Bob Gibson (251) and Jesse Haines (210). After Adam Wainwright deactivates his Twitter account, Cardinals fans, followers express dismay (stltoday.com)

Belgian shot put thrower Jolien Boumkwo competed in the 100-meter hurdles at the European Athletics Team Championships on Saturday after her teammates had to withdraw through injury.

Footage of Boumkwo carefully stepping over each hurdle while the other athletes race away ahead of her has since gone viral on social media. She smiled and laughed throughout before being congratulated by other competitors at the finish line.

Over to the college World Series. Sunday’s game Florida historically destroyed LSU 24-4. Then the next day it was winner take all.
It took less than one full inning for there to be a controversial call in tonight’s Game 3 of the Men’s College World Series title series.
Florida, the home team on Monday jumped out to a 2-0 lead on a Wyatt Langford home run, and might have been able to put more runs on the board if shortstop Josh Rivera wasn’t called out for runner’s interference on a close play at first. Instead of Rivera being safe, he became the second out of the inning. Fans and media were ticked off. To make matters worse, Florida’s two-run lead didn’t last long. LSU struck back for six runs in the top of the second, and they did so with smallball. Eventually, The Tigers flew past Florida 18-4 in Omaha to close out the Men’s College World Series and win the national championship. It marked the program’s seventh title, and the first since 2009. According to one of our emailers Mike who has two first names the starting pitcher was named Thatcher and there are a ton of high draft prospects in this batch of fellers.
