TOM FELTON who you might know as Draco Malfoy from the “Harry Potter” movies . . . collapsed yesterday while participating in the Ryder Cup’s celebrity golf match in Wisconsin. Tom suffered an unknown medical emergency that caused him to pass out. Luckily, medical staff were around to help him onto a cart and take him for further evaluation. Tom was playing with former NHL star Teemu Selänne, 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team captain Mike Eruzione, and retired speed skater Dan Jansen.
No word yet on what caused the collapse, but he was conscious when he left on the cart. Poor guy . . . he just turned 34 on Wednesday.
Did NORM MACDONALD trick the comedy world into delivering his final punchline?

Spencer Elden — the man who was the naked baby pictured in a swimming pool on Nirvana’s 1991 iconic album cover — has already sued over the image. His lawyer, Maggie Mabie, tells TMZ … she’s demanding Universal redact the image of Elden’s genitalia from all future album covers. What’s more … Mabie says it’s time to “end this child exploitation and violation of privacy.” She says every year, during the anniversary of the release of “Nevermind” … Elden has to brace himself for renewed, unwanted attention from the media and fans alike. She says with the 30th anniversary of the album release slated for Friday, Elden’s once again fears he’ll be subjected to public scorn and ridicule.

Director CARY FUKUNAGA knew he had to update James Bond for the #MeToo era in the “No Time to Die”. Especially given some of Bond’s past interactions with the ladies. In a recent interview, he said, quote, “Is it ‘Thunderball’ or ‘Goldfinger’ where, like, basically Sean Connery’s character rapes a woman? She’s like ‘No, no, no,’ and he’s like, ‘Yes, yes, yes.’ That wouldn’t fly today.” It sounds like Cary is referring to the scene in “Thunderball” where Bond forces a kiss on a nurse . . . then tells her he’ll stay quiet about something that could cause her to get fired, IF she sleeps with him.
A lot of people were seriously invested in the BILLIE EILISH who wore baggy clothes and didn’t express her sexuality. So much so that they abandoned her when she showed some skin in that photo shoot earlier this year. In the new issue of “Elle” magazine, Billie says, quote, “I lost 100,000 followers just because of the boobs. People are scared of big boobs . . . You’re not even supposed to really know who you are until you’re at least my age or older.” She adds, quote, “I’m still the same person. I’m not just different Barbies with different heads.” MADONNA gave her two cents in the same article, saying, quote, “The problem is, we still live in a very sexist world where women are put into categories: You’re either in the virgin category or the whore category. “Women should be able to portray themselves in any way they want. If Billie were a man, no one would be writing about this.
B.B. KING had 15 children…???A new biography claims that none of those kids could have been his biologically, because he was left STERILE in a childhood accident. Well, when B.B. was 12 years old, his testicles were smashed by a RAM. And since there was no doctor nearby, quote, “the mangled organs were left to mend on their own.” Then, his testes were further traumatized by an STD he got in his late teens. B.B. King’s family is calling B.S., saying he had most of his kids in the 1950s, and he was NOT sterile at the time.
“Tiger King 2” is coming to Netflix before the end of the year, and CAROLE BASKIN is NOT happy about it. And when Carole Baskin isn’t happy, people DISAPPEAR. Carole did NOT take part in this one. She says the director said they wanted to “clear the air” about how she was treated in the first “Tiger King”, but she told them to LOSE HER NUMBER. She adds, quote, “There is no explanation for such a betrayal and false portrayal. If people want to know the actual truth behind the big cat crisis in the U.S. and how it all started, they should be demanding to see ‘The Conservation Game’ film by Michael Webber. “His film answers the important questions that ‘Tiger King’ glossed over.” Netflix isn’t saying much about “TK2” yet, but obviously, JOE EXOTIC could only participate from BEHIND BARS.

This 1836 Rhode Island farmhouse can be yours for only . . . $1.2 million. According to the real estate listing, it has three bedrooms, one full bathroom and one partial bathroom . . . but it does have eight and a half acres of land. The house is currently used as an overnight rental for paranormal researchers, ghost hunters, and anyone else who wants to get a scare. The current caretakers have reported quite a few happenings in the house. After all, the land is allegedly cursed and haunted by the ghost of Bathsheba Sherman.They also lean into the home’s association with “The Conjuring”. There are movie posters on one of the walls and the real estate listing video is like a mini horror movie, complete with a ghost girl and a Raggedy Ann doll that moves by itself.

Yesterday afternoon the Cardinals looked like their winning streak was going to come to an end as the team was down 5-0 to the Brewers and it didn’t look like the team would be able to turn things around. However, partly in thanks to two Paul Goldschmidt homers, the Cardinals did rally and the now have a 12 game winning streak going. Their magic number with 10 games left is 6. Crazy. Tonight the Cards are up in Wrigley for a Day/Night doubleheader. JA Happ gets the day start and Jack Flaherty gets the start for the night game.
Here’s the latest breakdown of what needs to happen for the Cardinals to play in the postseason in 2021. As of the beginning of play today, the Cardinals have 10 games left to play. All of their remaining games are against either the Milwaukee Brewers or Chicago Cubs. If the season ended TODAY, the Cardinals would claim the second Wild Card spot in the National League. The Phillies are also chasing the Braves in the hunt for the National League East title, and are just two games out in that race. The Cardinals’ “magic number” is technically six as of Friday morning. The Cardinals could still technically win the NL Central, but their elimination number is down to three with just 10 games remaining.
Adam Wainwright didn’t have his best performance on the year yesterday, but there was a bit of history made. In the 4th, Waino struck out Luis Urias and recorded his 2,000th strikeout of his career. Players and coaches from both teams began to clap, and the crowd at American Family Field gave Wainwright a rousing ovation. And no, it wasn’t because he’d just picked up his first punchout of the game. With the strikeout he became the 85th pitcher in history to reach 2,000 strikeouts and the second Cardinal to do so since Bob Gibson. Also – the Cardinals have granted the unconditional release of pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon.

VLADI 2 – Why did he ask for the trade?
VLADI 3 – Could he end up staying in STL?
The NHL anticipates 30 of its 32 arenas will open at 100% capacity for the 2021-22 season, according to a memo circulated to teams this week. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Montreal Canadiens are expected to open at 33% capacity, or around 7,500 fans. The Vancouver Canucks will open at less than capacity, too. While the percentage has yet to be determined, the NHL initially estimated it could be at 50%. The NHL anticipates the Toronto Maple Leafs will be at full capacity this season. Currently, the team is only allowed 9,500 fans (50%) at Scotiabank Arena for its preseason game against Ottawa this weekend.
Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey left Thursday night’s game against the Texans with a strained hamstring, and Carolina later lost first-round pick Jaycee Horn to a broken right foot. The injuries soured a night that saw the Panthers beat the Texans 24-9 to move to 3-0 for just the fifth time in team history. Rhule said the team doesn’t know the severity of McCaffrey’s injury. The star running back will undergo additional tests. Quarterback Sam Darnold said he talked to McCaffrey after the game and described him as “sad.” McCaffrey stayed in the sideline medical tent for 22 minutes before emerging and heading to the locker room. He walked under his own power with a slight limp. McCaffrey stayed in the sideline medical tent for 22 minutes before emerging and heading to the locker room.
