Someone recently pointed out that more than 20 years ago, when ELLIE KEMPER was 19, she participated in a St. Louis debutante event called the Veiled Prophet Ball . . . which was founded in 1878 and has roots in white supremacy. So yesterday, she apologized (link) and denounced racism. And she said that even though she was only 19, ignorance was no excuse.  She added that she will, quote, “continue to educate myself, and use my privilege in support of the better society I think we’re capable of becoming.” (Whole statement.. When I was 19 years old, I decided to participate in a debutante ball in my hometown. The century-old organization that hosted the debutante ball had an unquestionably racist, sexist, and elitist past,” posted the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star on Instagram in reference to the Veiled Prophet Ball, run by the Veiled Prophet Organization, which was founded in 1878. “I was not aware of this history at the time, but ignorance is no excuse. I was old enough to have educated myself before getting involved. I unequivocally deplore, denounce and reject white supremacy. At the same time, I acknowledge that because of my race and my privilege, I am the beneficiary of a system that has dispensed unequal justice and unequal rewards.”) (link)

KHLOE KARDASHIAN is entertainment lets all keep that in mind. She is the social conscious. She is famous for being famous. Im not bagging on her I’m just saying consider your source when it comes to things…Khloe went all green saying we suck for using plastic water bottles and she is right but also she nneds to remember her entire life is online, part of the reason she is very wealthy, so her followers see everything… like she seems to be the single biggest consumer of balloons (link) on Earth. Rooms completely filled for birthdays etc. all posted online. Not to mention the fact that she flies around the world on a private jet. Pollution duh. She didn’t respond to anyone’s specific criticisms, but she did say, quote, “I am constantly learning and trying to be better for the environment for the sake of my daughter. “I am the last one to say that I’m super environmentally conscious because I know how much more I have to learn.”

I hate to use the word finally. But a HARVEY WEINSTEIN movie in the works. It’s based on a book called “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement”. The reporters who broke that story will be played by CAREY MULLIGAN (“Promising Young Woman”) and ZOE KAZAN (“The Deuce” and “The Plot Against America”). They reported the story which broke on October 5, 2017, collecting allegations of sexual harassment and assault many women had made against Weinstein, dating back several decades. The film is said to focus on “an all-women team of journalists who persevered through threats of litigation and intimidation to break a game-changing story”  (Link)

Kid Rock still gets surprised by people recording his shows on their phones. He took the stage on Saturday night at Fishlipz Resort & Grill in Tennessee and went after the crowd for recording him on their phones. Apparently, security had been telling people to put their phones down. (link)

“Loki (link)” premieres tomorrow on Disney+, and Marvel dropped an interesting piece of information in a new teaser (link) yesterday: Loki is GENDER FLUID. The clip includes a quick glance at a file on Loki, and under “Sex”, it says “Fluid”.  This isn’t necessarily just Disney and Marvel trying to be “woke”.  In Norse mythology, Loki once took on the form of a mare and was IMPREGNATED (link) by a stallion . . . then gave birth to an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir. So it sounds like Loki has pretty much always been down for whatever. On a related note . . . General Mills is selling a limited-edition version of Lucky Charms called LOKI CHARMS, with the tagline, “They’re Mischievously Delicious.” (Uproxx)

Since the Cardinals were off yesterday lets start with some NHL Stanley Cup Playoff news.  The Islanders beat the Bruins last night 5-4 and now lead that series 3 games to 2.  The Canadiens – who had to battle back against the Leafs in round 1 – made EASY work of the Jets and beat them 3-2 in OT last night to sweep that series.  Today, we see the Lightning with a chance to eliminate the Hurricanes and the Knights/Avalanche are all tied up at 2 with their game at 8PM.

The Cardinals are back on the field tonight with a game against the Indians at 7:15PM.  Carlos Martinez gets the start for the Cards and Shane Bieber goes for the Indians.

The NBA Finals continued last night as well.  The Nets are now up 2-0 against the Bucks.  They destroyed them 125-86.  It was never close.  In the West – the Suns got the best of the Nuggets as they won 122-105.  Today we see game 2 of the Hawks/76ers and Game 1 of the Clippers/Jazz series.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly unlikely to report for the team’s mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. The Packers can fine Rodgers $93,000 if he misses all three days. He’s already missed out on a $500,000 workout bonus when he skipped organized team activities. Rodgers has been frustrated with the Packers front office for years because of difference of opinion when it comes to his supporting cast. The Packers haven’t selected a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL draft since 2002 and things came to a boiling point when they selected a quarterback, Jordan Love, with the 26th pick in the 2020 draft. It was the team’s first time taking an offensive player in the first round since 2011. Love is the heir apparent to Lambeau but the king still reigns. Rodgers, 37, is coming off an MVP season that saw him throw for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns.

Rookie cornerback Cameron Kinley’s request to delay his U.S. Navy commission to play in the NFL for the  Buccaneers has been denied. Kinley is being required by the Navy to commission as an ensign and is not permitted to appeal the decision. Kinley, a team captain at Navy and class president, signed as an undrafted free agent with the Buccaneers and participated in the team’s rookie minicamp, with the Navy’s permission.

In a statement released Monday afternoon, Kinley said that he has spent the past week processing his emotions, as it is very difficult to have been this close to achieving his childhood dream and having it taken away from him. He also said he “hopes that this situation will soon be overturned and that he can get back to competing on the field and representing the U.S. Navy.”

Former New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel has died at the age of 71. Jim Fassel, who lived in Las Vegas, died of a heart attack while under sedation after being taken to a local hospital Monday with chest pains. Jim Fassel was head coach of the Giants from 1997 to 2003 and guided the team to three playoff berths. He was named the NFL’s Coach of the Year in 1997. Fassel’s Giants lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-7 in Super Bowl XXXV in January 2001, after going 12-4 and winning the NFC East that season. Fassel was 58-53-1 overall with the Giants.

The Metro East will have one of their own going for gold in Tokyo in July. Maryville, Illinois, native and Collinsville High School grad Michelle Bartsch-Hackley was named to the United States Women’s Olympic Volleyball Team on Monday. Bartsch-Hackley is a 31-year-old outside hitter and has been a member of the U.S. Women’s National Team since 2015. She was an Olympic alternate in 2016. She also attended the University of Illinois and was inducted into the Illinois Athletics Hall of Fame in 2020. Bartsch-Hackley was joined by another former Illini great on the Olympic roster as well. Jordyn Poulter, who played at Illinois from 2015-2018, as she was named to the team on Monday as well.

Cleveland’s MLB team might be narrowing down its options in the search for a new nickname. According to a sports talk guy in Cleveland, the team is challenging trademark applications for several nicknames including: the Natives, the Foresters, the Warriors, the Guardians, the Cleveland Baseball Club, the Heroes and the Squires.  The host did say that these nicknames may not even be considered. He wrote that challenging applications is “pretty standard” to prevent “independent parties” from making money on a future name change by holding the trademark in advance. The team already owns trademarks for the names the Blues, the Naps and the Broncos. The club announced in December it would change its name, following pushback from Native American groups that considered the current name racist.
