Dwayne Carter better known as Lil Wayne, who pleaded guilty in 2020 in federal court to illegally possessing a loaded, gold plated .45 caliber handgun while traveling to Florida on a private jet in 2019. He is a convicted felon. Could see 10 years in prison at sentencing. Or he may not see any jail time. Trump has a long list of pardons and commutations to get to today or tomorrow and apparently Mr Lil Wayne made the list.
PEARL JAM just sent a cease-and-desist order to a British cover band that calls itself Pearl Jamm. The band claims that Fake Pearl Jamm’s name, merchandise, and domain name are, quote, “damaging the Pearl Jam brand and causing confusion.” They were kind of heartbroken about it, so they sent an angry letter back to Real Pearl Jam, saying, quote, “This isn’t the Pearl Jam we know and love, the Pearl Jam that stands up for social issues and against corporate giants.” They added, quote, “No one has ever confused us or our merchandise with you or your merchandise, and so to say that is ‘likely’ is clearly nonsense.” They also brought up the fact that when drummer MATT CAMERON was in junior high, he was in a KISS tribute band that got a cease-and-desist from the REAL KISS.
A Boogie Wit da Hoodie is being sued for allegedly causing more than a quarter million dollars in damage to a New Jersey rental mansion — including by clogging its toilets so badly, sewage seeped through the floors. He was renting it in 2017 for a month from a doctor. The place is worth about $3.3 million. He left behind “bathroom toilets clogged and overrun by sewerage material which penetrated through the floors and damaging ceilings below,’’ says the lawsuit filed in Hackensack Superior Court last week, NorthJersey.com reported. Destruction to the mansion also included “carpets cut out and mismatched pieces replaced damages, stains and tears throughout,’’ “entry doors to be left open with evidence of extensive water damage,’’ “walls and trim damaged” and “damage to the landscape,” while “two vehicles … [were] abandoned on the property,” the court papers alleged. The owners are seeking $263,592 in compensation

It’ll be interesting if this becomes a “THING” leading up to the Super Bowl. Coca-Cola and Pepsi won’t be blowing money on Super Bowl ads this year . . . and Coca-Cola said it was to, quote, “ensure we’re investing in the right resources during these unprecedented times.” That said, Pepsi IS still sponsoring the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which is essentially a big advertisement itself. Coke spent about $20 million on last years Super Bowl.
Coachella was scheduled for April 9th-11th and April 16th-18th. But it and Stagecoach will hopefully be rescheduled for fall. I say hopefully because those are the words of the mayor there. “We’re hoping that those events will be rescheduled to the fall of this year.” She said they are focused on safety now so the future is brighter.

After the Sharks picked up a quick 2-0 lead in the first the Blues looked to be in trouble yet again last night. However – a 4 period fourth with two goals from Justin Faulk, Mike Hoffman’s first goal as a Blue, and a goal from Brayden Schenn…they went up 4-3 after 2. About 5 mins in the 3rd the Sharks tied things up but just half way through the 3rd, Jordan Kyrou picked up his 2nd goal of the year and that was the game winner…final score 5-4. The Blues and Sharks play again tomorrow at 8PM.
Some more NFL moves happened yesterday. The two main of note both happened in Baltimore where the Ravens have released backup QB Robert Griffin III and RB Mark Ingram. Griffin has been with the Ravens since 2018 and made his debut with the Washington Football Team back in 2012. This was his 8th year in the NFL. As far as Ingram, as the team releases him, it will free up $5 million dollars in cap space for the Ravens.
When we talk about Bills mafia you think about drunken shenanigans and people jumping through tables. However – the Bills Mafia has proven that they are way more than that. Last week when Lamar Jackson exited the game against the Bills with an injury, they stepped up and did something awesome for him. They raised more than $360,000 and donated it to Jackson’s favorite charity. Awesome!
The fans in Houston Texas are supporting Deshaun Watson. Now, it seems like there is no way that he will ever take another snap in Houston, Watson is asking the fans to NOT rally for him. There was a planned march in support of Watson but he asked them not to gather because of COVID concerns. Watson is unhappy with the front office and apparently they aren’t happy with him either. We will have to wait and see if another team out there will give Deshaun a chance and what direction the Texans will go next year.
Yesterday the United States Women National Team took on Columbia in a Friendly and thanks to a hat trick from Sam Mewis, the US won 4-0. It was family affair because her old sister Kristie scored the other goal. The two teams will play again on Friday.
So yesterday some rumors came out that the Cardinals did present new offers to both Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright – but this morning I’m seeing that may NOT be the case – we did see another big name finding a new team. Jon Lester has agreed to the a deal with the Washington Nationals. As far as Yadi is concerned…apparently during a Puerto Rican league game yesterday…he pitched an inning and actually recorded a strike out. As far as any update with either Yadier Molina or Adam Wainwright signing with the Cardinals….we still got nothing.
And finally — New York Mets general manager Jared Porter sent explicit, unsolicited texts and images to a female reporter starting back in 2016. The woman, a foreign correspondent who had moved to the United States to cover Major League Baseball, said at one point she ignored more than 60 messages from Porter before he sent the final lewd photo. The text relationship started casually and then he began complimenting her appearance, inviting her to meet him in various cities and asking why she was ignoring him. And the texts show she had stopped responding to Porter after he sent a photo of pants featuring a bulge in the groin area. Porter continued texting her anyway, sending dozens of messages despite the lack of a response. On Aug. 11, 2016, a day after asking her to meet him at a hotel in Los Angeles, Porter sent the woman 17 pictures. The first 15 photos were of the hotel and its restaurants. The 16th was the same as an earlier photo of the bulge in the pants. The 17th was of a bare penis. He and the Mets have acknowledged his actions and he says he regrets his behavior. The team is currently investigating things.
