In an interview with “The Playlist“, they said, quote, “They are gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know?

Like asking, quote, “What from our universe would you like to use?” and assuring, quote, “This is not going to be the Disney-fied ‘Deadpool'” (LINK)
The Amazon series “A League of Their Own” is inspired by the 1992 movie of the same name, but it doesn’t involve the same characters. And it’ll explore issues of sexuality and race, which the movie didn’t do. It “takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the league and outside of it.” There’s also a character reminiscent of MAMIE JOHNSON . . . a real-life pitcher who wasn’t allowed to play in the women’s league because she was black, and ended up being one of the few females to play in the Negro League. The first teaser for Amazon’s “A League of Their Own” dropped yesterday. The show premieres on August 12th.)
The Peacock series “Yellowstone” has had a legit economic impact on the state of Montana. Production on Season 4 alone brought $72 million to businesses, and another $85 million to the state itself.

She said, quote, “I don’t like how busy it is. I don’t like the traffic. And it’s too expensive.”
Director Martin Scorsese wrote that he “had many plans to work” with late Goodfellas actor Ray Liotta “again but the timing was always off, or the project wasn’t quite right.”, adding “I regret that now.” Scorsese added that he wanted to work with Liotta after seeing him in 2019’s Marriage Story, so he could “explore the gravity in his presence, so different from the young, sprightly actor he was when I met him.” The director also wrote “I wish I’d had the chance to see him just once more, too — to tell him just how much the work we did together meant to me. But maybe he knew that. I hope so.” Liotta died in his sleep last month at 67 years old.
Todd Phillips is “getting pretty close on a Joker sequel.” This could be true since Warner Brothers Discovery has asked Phillips to take on an advisory role to oversee the DC Universe.

Last night the Cards opened up their series with the Rays in Tampa. It DID take a little extra baseball as the game wrapped up in the 10th. Dakota Hudson had a strong showing and struck out 6 in the non-decision. However – it was the Rays who came away with a 4-2 win after a walk off 3-run homer gave Tampa the win. Two teams are at it again today. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10PM. Packy Naughton gets the start.
The Los Angeles Angels’ went from having one of the best records in the American League to a gnarly losing streak…and for that reason….Joe Maddon lost his job yesterday. Third base coach Phil Nevin will be the interim manager for the rest of the season. The Angels tied a club record with their 13th straight loss Tuesday night, falling 6-5 to the Boston Red Sox in 10 innings. The Angels — who are 27-30 — lost 13 straight during the 1988-89 seasons. The defeat surpasses the 1988 mark for longest single-season skid in club history.
And – we will stay in Tampa, where the Rangers and Lightning played Game 4. And – the Lightning have evened up the series with a 4-1 ass kicking. The series is now tied 2-2 and the winner will face the Avs who swept the Oilers. Next game for the Eastern Conference Final is tomorrow at 7PM.
The New York Times reported Tuesday that Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson booked massage appointments with at least 66 different women over 17 months, from fall 2019 through spring 2021. A few of these additional women spoke publicly for the first time to the Times. One woman, who did not sue Watson or complain to the police, told reporters that he was persistent in his requests for sexual acts during their massage, including “begging” her to put her m***h on his p***s.
The Denver Broncos have entered a sale agreement with the Walton-Penner family ownership group. The agreement is for $4.65 billion. That would be a record price paid for a North American sports franchise. The Walton-Penner group — headed by Walmart heir Rob Walton; his daughter, Carrie Walton Penner; and her husband, Greg Penner — will also include the co-CEO of Ariel Investments as well as chair of the board of the Starbucks Corp. and a director at JP Morgan Chase. The sale agreement is now subject to review by the NFL’s finance committee and then must be approved by a full vote of NFL owners. Twenty-four yes votes are needed for the sale to be approved.
The Washington Commanders plan on unveiling a mascot next season, but the team won’t do so until later in the campaign. The Commanders announced Monday that the mascot would be revealed Jan. 1 for a Week 17 game against the Cleveland Browns at FedEx Field. The team said there will be a “season-long fan engagement program” to help select the mascot, adding that details of that program will be unveiled later this summer.
Tiger Woods is taking a break. The 46-year-old announced on Twitter that he is skipping the upcoming U.S. Open Championship as his body continues to heal from the car crash that left him with severe leg injuries last year. He said QUOTE: “I previously informed the USGA that I will not be competing in the @usopengolf as my body needs more time to get stronger for major championship golf. I do hope and plan to be ready to play in Ireland at @JPProAm and at @TheOpen next month!” In late May, Woods hit the links for his second professional event since the accident while playing in the PGA Championship in Oklahoma.
We mentioned yesterday that Dustin Johnson has resigned from the PGA Tour completely after taking a reported nine-figure mega-deal to play in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf. The deal is worth $125 million. He said QUOTE: “Obviously at this time it’s hard to speak on what the consequences will be, but for right now I resigned my membership from the Tour. I’m going to play here, for now. That’s the plan.” Phil Mickelson has reportedly been paid $200 million to participate, and is by far its most high-profile signee, with Johnson second.
Mickelson and Johnson are welcome to play the U.S. Open next week under a USGA decision that puts the open nature of the championship over a player’s decision to play in a rival league. Mickelson and Johnson are among a dozen players in the LIV Golf Invitational this week who are exempt for the U.S. Open. Both have said they plan to play the third major of the year. The USGA said: “Regarding players who may choose to play in London this week, we simply asked ourselves this question — should a player who had earned his way into the 2022 U.S. Open, via our published field criteria, be pulled out of the field as a result of his decision to play in another event? And we ultimately decided that they should not.”
