A Guy on Drugs Tried to Claim His Bag of Syringes Was “For Fishing” – LINK

HOOSHE EXTRA – Florida Continues to Defend Its Title as the Shark Bite Capital of the U.S. – LINK


Not much is known about JOHN KRASINSKI’s next movie “If” . . . but we do know it’ll be a mini “Office” reunion of sorts, because STEVE CARELL has joined the cast. This is the first time they’ll be working together since the series.  John’s, quote, “dream cast” will also include RYAN REYNOLDS, and LOUIS GOSSETT JR. “If” is an original story from John about a child’s journey to rediscover their imagination.  It’s due out November 17th, 2023. 

PETER DINKLAGE’s comments about the new live-action “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” already made their way back to Disney. He basically said a bunch of dwarfs living in a cave is antiquated.  They issued a statement saying, quote, “To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community . . .”We look forward to sharing more as the film heads into production after a lengthy development period.” So, it looks like they’ll have cultural consultants, just like they did for the live-action “Aladdin” and “Mulan”. Our friend and comedian Brad Williams, a dwarf himself, has a solution so everyone wins.

DAVID LETTERMAN is making a guest appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary on February 1st. “Late Night” first premiered on February 1st, 1982 with David.  It’s kind of a big deal for him to be appearing on NBC again, considering they didn’t have the best breakup when Jay Leno was chosen over him to take over “The Tonight Show”. As for the musical guest?  COUNTING CROWS singer ADAM DURITZ because why not.

Dwayne Johnson has starred in two movies based on video games, 2005’s Doom and 2018’s Rampage, neither of which are very good. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level are video game movies, but they’re not based on a video game, an important distinction. Maybe the Rock will have better luck the third time. Now he’s bringing another video game to the big screen — but he won’t say what it is. He says “I can’t tell you which game in particular we’re doing, but there will be an announcement this year. We’re going to bring one of the biggest, most badass games to the screen, one that I’ve played for years. I’m really excited to bring it to fans around the world. Of course we’re going to do right by our gamer friends — but really we’re just going to make a great movie.” 

JANET JACKSON was close with her brother MICHAEL . . . but he may have also contributed to her body image issues.  In the new documentary “Janet”, she says he used to make fun of her weight.  Quote, “There were times when Mike used to tease me and call me names.  ‘Pig, horse, slaughter hog, cow.’ He would laugh about it and I’d laugh too, but then there was some­where down inside that it would hurt.” She adds, quote, “When you have somebody say you’re too heavy, it affects you.” “Janet” airs in two parts, on Friday and Saturday, on both A&E and Lifetime. 

25 Celebrities Who Suffered the Worst Possible Deaths (LINK)

Sports Report 1

During doubles action at the Australian Open yesterday, Nick Kyrgios smashed the ball down (LINK) onto the court . . . and it bounced into the stands and beaned a 9-year-old kid in the stomach.  Kyrgios immediately made a face like he knew he messed up, and one of the commentators said, quote, “I think that may have hit somebody incredibly hard.”  Then they showed the kid CRYING.  Kyrgios cheered the kid up by running over and giving him one of his rackets.

David Ortiz is the only player (LINK) going into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year.  Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, and Curt Schilling all failed in their 10th year on the ballot, meaning they’ll NEVER get in.  (Here’s David Ortiz on finding out the news.)

With No. 1 Auburn in town, the Mizzou Tigers were less than two minutes away from pulling off the unthinkable on Norm Stewart Court. Instead, another crushing loss unfolded one untimely possession at a time.

In a game Mizzou led for nearly 27 minutes, two K.D. Johnson baskets in the final 87 seconds were the difference in Auburn’s 55-54 victory.

Good enough, tough enough and close enough wasn’t enough to overcome a series of late breakdowns, punctuated by a pivotal decision that surely left many of the 10,004 in attendance second-guessing MU’s late strategy (LINK)

Sean Payton has informed the New Orleans Saints that he is stepping away as head coach. La Canfora added that it is not a retirement per se, but rather a break and that a return to the NFL at some point is possible.

The Saints’ coach since 2006, Payton compiled a 152-89 regular season record and a 9-8 postseason record. In 2009, this dude led New Orleans to the franchise’s first Super Bowl title, a 31-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts (LINK). The Saints went 9-8 last season while missing the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Saints owner Gayle Benson recently acknowledged that she was not sure whether or not Payton — who has three years remaining on his contract — would continue to coach New Orleans in 2022.

Payton had been the NFL’s second-longest tenured head coach behind only Patriots (LINK)‘ coach Bill Belichick. He is currently tied with Seattle coach Pete Carroll for 21st in NFL history in regular season wins. Payton’s .631 regular season winning percentage is tied for the 22nd highest mark in league annals. His nine playoff wins matches the mark of Hall of Fame coaches Vince Lombardi, John Madden, Paul Brown and Tom Flores (LINK)

Two former San Diego city attorneys have followed through on their threat from last week and filed a lawsuit against the National Football League and its 32 team owners, accusing them of violating their own rules governing team relocations.

The legal complaint was filed by former San Diego City Attorney Michael Aguirre and his law partner and former deputy Maria Severson. Aguirre, who served as San Diego’s elected city attorney from 2004 to 2008, modeled his complaint after a similar suit filed by attorneys in St. Louis, where the Rams played for more than 20 years before relocating to Los Angeles. The NFL recently settled out of court, sending $790 million to St. Louis entities.

The San Diego suit accuses league and team officials of failing to negotiate in good faith over more than 10 years, while city officials worked to find a new playing field for the San Diego Chargers or to upgrade the team’s longtime home, Qualcomm Stadium (LINK)
