Don’t let this lower your guard, because we’re still in dangerous territory.  But 42 states saw their COVID-19 rates drop last week.  So the combination of vaccines and getting past the holidays seems to be helping.  The number of new U.S. cases was down 16% overall, and new hospitalizations dropped 26%.

Taiwan fined a guy $3,500 for breaking his mandatory quarantine when he came back into the country from Hong Kong in October.  But they’ve decided to waive the fine when they learned he broke his quarantine . . . because he was KIDNAPPED. The guy was quarantining at a friend’s house, and apparently that friend owed money to some bad dudes . . . and they came to the house and accidentally kidnapped the guy who was quarantining.

Even Levi’s is recognizing that after the pandemic, the future is sweatpants.  They launched their first-ever line of sweatpants last year, and they now say the pants sold SO WELL they’re planning an even bigger collection of them this year.

A kid in the U.K. is going viral after he figured out by changing his name on Zoom to “Reconnecting,” his teachers always thought he had a bad Internet connection and would never call on him to answer questions.

The Weeknd says that he’s doing the halftime show SOLO. He said, quote, “There wasn’t any room to fit [special guests] in the narrative and the story I was telling in the performance. The Weeknd will also be performing on a special stage from the stands, which is possible because the pandemic is restricting the number of fans in attendance.  He added that his performance WILL be “family friendly.”   He’s the first Canadian to headline the big show since Shania Twain in 2003. The last solo performance was Lady Gaga in 2017 but before her no one had gone solo since Prince in 2007. 

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert will have Metallica on this Sunday for A Late Show: Super Bowl edition at 10:30 central. It’s been 4 years since they did his show.

Joe Montana is the “GOAT” in an ad for Guinness.

BTW there is a link on the blog that will take you to pretty much all the SB ads we have seen or talked about before if you want to check them out ahead of time  

Here’s a chance for MORGAN WALLEN to live up to his “sincere” apology and “promise to do better” after getting caught using the N-word. The Nashville chapter of the NAACP invited him to “have a conversation about inequality” . . . and about why the word is hurtful. No word if Morgan has accepted the invite. Meanwhile, as of yesterday, Morgan’s music was still streaming on iTunes . . . and dominating.  At one point he occupied Five of the Top 10 spots on the Songs Chart, and the Top Three positions on their Album Chart. 

Kevin Hart is facing a lawsuit accusing him of canceling an appearance and messing up the refunds. An event planning company claims that Hart agreed to appear at an afterparty scheduled to take place after one of his comedy concerts back in July 2018. Hart allegedly agreed to publicize the event in Manhattan on his Instagram account. As the afterparty came closer, Hart had not posted anything about it. The event planners had allegedly paid Hart $10,000 of the $26,000 Kevin was to make by appearing at the party. There was a miscommunication between Hart’s agent and the company about where to send the refund for Hart’s non-appearance. After a year of back and forth, the plaintiff found out that Hart had allegedly canceled way before the event was to take place. The suit is seeking $390,000 in damages for “willfully disregarded their contractual obligations by using delay tactics and making false promises to perform.” 

Maynard from Tool said last October that he was dealing with lung damage from a nasty COVID-19 infection he caught early during the pandemic. Now he says he caught COVID again – one month later. “I got it like mid-November and ended up in the ER on December 1st. Ugly, ugly. Couldn’t breathe. I could barely put two words together without going into a coughing fit.. He learned his new infection had turned into pneumonia once in the ER.  Realizing a hospital stay would mean “fighting twelve other people for bed”, Keenan said he opted to treat himself at home, saying “There’s nothing you can do other than treat the symptom – so for a real cough medicine — not the crap over-the-counter — and then like an inhaler, and some antibiotics to fight the pneumonia and strap the f*** in.”

King Scott always says man if boobs could talk…SALMA HAYEK is producing a series for HBO Max about . . . TALKING BOOBS.  It’s called “A Boob’s Life”, and it’s based on a book of the same name by Leslie Lehr. It’s a comedy about, quote, “a woman turning 40 and in crisis, whose life gets turned upside down when her boobs start talking to her, forcing her to look at herself in a completely different light.” Salma says, quote, “In ‘A Boob’s Life’, we use breasts as a metaphor for the constant judgement women are submitted to, creating a collective sensation that no matter what we do we are never enough. “In this show, we give the breast a voice that takes us through the life of a woman from a unique perspective that often we don’t dare to see.”

Speaking of boobs…O.J. Simpson is still looking for that killer on local golf courses. Im assuming he gets comped for everything for whatever reason. I also assume has some money yet the man still has a bit of debt according to Fred Goldman the dad of Ron Goldman. OJ was ordered to pay $33.5 million dollars after he was found liable in the killing of Ron Goldman, who was slashed to the death along with Nicole Brown Simpson in Brentwood, CA in 1994. According to Goldman and his new court paperwork Simpson has only paid back, $133,000…and that’s rounding up. If you add interest he still owes now about $70 million dollars and that’s rounding down.  

It’s been nearly 10 years since CASEY ANTHONY was acquitted in the mysterious death of her daughter Caylee . . . and it sounds like Casey has found a special way to commemorate the occasion. She’s developing a documentary about her trial, and will serve as an executive producer.  It’s being called an “authorized” documentary, and she’ll share HER take on Caylee’s death in 2008. Casey and her co-producers say she’s, quote, “ready to clear her name, bring justice to her daughter, and begin the process of establishing her daughter’s legacy in a different light.” 

CHRISSY TEIGEN Tweeted about a time she and JOHN LEGEND accidentally ordered a $13,000 bottle of wine, and the Internet lit her up for it. 

one time john and I were at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a nice Cabernet. We got the bill and it was 13,000 dollars. HOW DO U CASUALLY RECOMMEND THAT WINE. we didn’t even finish it and it had been cleared!! 

The card game “Uno” is being turned into a movie.  And not surprisingly, it sounds like the movie won’t have anything to do with the actual game. It’s described as an “action heist comedy,” set in the underground Hip-Hop world of Atlanta.  Rapper LIL YACHTY is producing, and will probably star in it. He says, quote, “I played Uno as a kid and still do today, so to spin that into a movie based on the Atlanta hip hop scene I came out of is really special.  It hits close to home for me.”

The Blues debuted their reverse retro jerseys last night against the Coyotes, and unfortunately, the jerseys weren’t the only thing people are going to be talking about today.  Yesterday the Coyotes had a 3-0 lead late in the third.  Mike Hoffman ended up scoring a goal with just over 3 minutes left.  The Blues pulled Binnington and the Coyotes ended up scoring an empty netter making it 4-1.  Then, with just under 2 mins to go, Ryan O’Reilly scored and then Hoffman scored again with under 30 second to go.  Unfortunately, too little too late.  4-3 was the final.  The Blues were SUPPOSED to have upcoming games with Colorado and Minnesota, but both of those teams have had their season suspended because of Covid.  So…whats going to happen?!  MORE GAMES AGAINST ARIZONA!  The Coyotes will stay in town and they will play on Saturday and Monday.

The Los Angeles Angels acquired veteran outfielder Dexter Fowler from the Cardinals on Thursday night for cash or a player to be named later. Fowler batted .233 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 23 games last season. The switch-hitting slugger is a career .259 hitter with 127 homers and 561 RBIs. Fowler, who turns 35 next month, can play all three outfield positions. Although Fowler’s production has declined in recent years, the Angels see the veteran as an important leader for their clubhouse and a short-term solution in right field so they can give more minor league development time to two younger players. As part of the trade, the Cardinals agreed to pay the Angels $12.75 million in 12 installments of $1,062,500 on the 15th and final day of each month from April through September.

So Spring Training is literally just 2 weeks away…and there are some BIG name players that legit do not have an MLB team yet.  Just listen to this list of players:  Trevor Bauer, Marcell Ozuna, Nelson Cruz, Justin Turner, Yadier Molina, Mitch Moreland, and Trevor Rosenthal.  The common factor between all of these players?  They all have appeared as an all-star.  Crazy.  Now, it should be noted that there is a rumor that Trevor Bauer and the Mets do have a contract in place but…it isn’t OFFICIALLY OFFICAL yet.

Every year, EA Sports runs a simulated Super Bowl on the latest edition of “Madden”.  It’s been right 11 of the last 17 years. And in 2015, the game not only correctly predicted a Patriots win over the Seahawks, but it also nailed the final score, 28-24. It was right last year.  It had the Kansas City Chiefs beating the San Francisco 49ers 35-31, and the Chiefs did end up winning, 31-20. This year, the Chiefs beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 37-27 . . . with the score tied at 27 with six minutes left in the fourth quarter. Mahomes outdueled Brady . . . with four touchdowns and no interceptions and 422 passing yards.  Brady had three touchdowns, one interception, and 322 passing yards.

The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association will have a finalized agreement for an All-Star Game on March 7 in Atlanta by next week. The single-night event will encompass the Eastern Conference-Western Conference game as well as the skills competitions. The NBA and NBPA are finalizing details on health and safety protocols that will govern the All-Star participants and those players dispersing for the league’s March 5-10 break. The All-Star Game and skills competitions will be held at State Farm Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks.

The NBA’s most high-profile star, LeBron James, ripped the league’s plans to hold an All-Star Game in Atlanta in March while COVID-19 restrictions continue to have a grip on the regular season. “I have zero energy and zero excitement about an All-Star Game this year…..I don’t even understand why we’re having an All-Star Game.” James, 36, has played in the league’s showcase event in 16 of his previous 17 seasons in the league and, as a top vote-getter, was named a captain for the past three seasons as the NBA went away from East vs. West and adopted a draft format to spice up the competition.
