JUSSIE SMOLLETT and possibly his grandma was sentenced to 30 months of felony probation for lying to police when he faked a hate crime against himself in Chicago back in 2019.

He was facing up to three years on all five felony counts he was charged with. Here is what the sentencing sounded like. Here is Jussie’s statement. Before Jussie was sentenced, his 92-year-old grandmother Molly Smollett told the court, quote, “I ask you, judge, not to send him to prison. If you do, send me along with him, OK?” (LINK)

Guitarist JOHN FRUSCIANTE rejoined the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS for the THIRD time in 2019, after a 10-year absence. Apparently he has never revealed why he left. The reason? Witchcraft. The occult. And he says it was witchcraft that caused his departure in 2009. He told “Classic Rock Magazine”, “As the tour went on, I got deep into the occult, which became a way of escaping the mindset of tour life. “The occult tends to magnify whatever you are, and I was an imbalanced mess.” The band could see what it was doing to him, so when he told them he had to leave, they didn’t try to stop him. ANTHONY KIEDIS says, quote, “We were like, ‘We understand, it’s obvious it’s not where you want to be.'” (LINK)

In a new “Vanity Fair” interview, GRIMES revealed that she and ELON MUSK have a newborn daughter via surrogate. And they call her “Y”. It’s a nickname, obviously. Like how their son’s name is a bunch of symbols, and they call him “X” for short. Something even more interesting that came up is the fact that Elon is far from the greedy money hoarder he’s made out to be. According to Grimes, he’s spending all his money on Mars research for, quote, “the benefit of humanity.” She adds, quote, “Bro might say a lot of stupid [stuff], but he does the right thing . . . Bro lives at times below the poverty line. “To the point where I was like, ‘Can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?'” As for the status of their relationship, she says, quote, “I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid” (LINK)

The Blues were in action last night for a game against the Rangers at Enterprise Center. Last time the two teams met was in New York and the Rangers got the win. Well, the Blues made sure that didn’t happen last night. Without even scoring in the 3rd, the Blues still beat the Rangers 6-2. Ville Husso was ON IT last night making a couple HUGE saves including one that set up on of the prettiest tic tac toe plays this year. Robert Thomas had a pair, and he was joined by Barbashev, OReilly, Walman, and Perron all netting goals in the win. Up next, a game against Predators in Nashville tomorrow at 11:30AM.
Major League owners and players reached a new collective bargaining agreement yesterday, meaning that the 99-day lockout is OVER. Opening day has been rescheduled to April 7th . . . one week later than it was supposed to be . . . but teams will still play a full, 162-game season. Commissioner Rob Manfred said, quote, “I want to start by apologizing to our fans. I know the last few months have been difficult.” In addition to the economic aspects, the deal also includes: A draft lottery to discourage teams from intentionally tanking . . . the National League adopting the designated hitter . . . expanded 12-team postseason . . . the return of nine inning double-headers . . . and they’re scrapping the runner on second in extra innings. The players also signed off on the league making future changes, such as the implementation of a pitch clock . . . banning the shift . . . and making the bases larger. Those changes COULD be made as soon as NEXT season.
The Chicago Bears are finalizing a trade that will send six-time Pro Bowl defensive end Khalil Mack to the Chargers. The Chargers are expected to send a 2022 second-round draft pick and a 2023 sixth-rounder to the Bears in return for the 31-year-old Mack. The deal marks the first major move for the new Bears general manager, who was hired in January. It also reunites Mack, the Defensive Player of the Year in 2016, with Chargers coach Brandon Staley. Staley was Mack’s linebackers coach when the Bears acquired him from the Raiders in September 2018.
Yesterday we talked about how Antonio Brown and Kanye West were interested in buying the Denver Broncos. If that DID happen, it would be tough for the following to happen. Brown was recently interviewed and expressed his desire to play next season for one specific teams – and its NOT the Broncos. Brown said that he would hope that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is impressed and inspired by Brown’s motivation and hard work.” The only thing AB has going for him is that Jerry Jones has a history of signing or trading for players with real crappy attitudes and horrible off-field decision making skills.

The Players Championship, one of the biggest events of the golf season, kicked off Thursday at TPC Sawgrass in Florida, and things certainly didn’t go according to plan thanks to heavy rain and high winds. The start of Thursday’s opening round was delayed for about an hour because of overnight rain, and play was suspended again around noon. The second delay lasted more than four hours. It was smooth sailing after that until another suspension at 6:30, this time due to darkness, which concluded the first day of play. Tommy Fleetwood and Tom Hoge were on it on Thursday, finishing six under par to lead the first round.
Former MLB pitcher Odalis Perez died Thursday at his home in the Dominican Republic. Perez had fallen from a ladder. Perez made his major league debut in 1998 with the Braves. He was eventually traded to the Dodgers in 2001 and earned his lone trip to the All-Star Game the following year. The Dodgers traded Perez to the Royals in 06. The lefthander later joined the Nationals on a minor league deal with an invite to spring training in 2008. The Nationals then elevated Perez to their Opening Day starter that season. It was the first game in Nationals Park, making Perez the first to ever throw a pitch in the stadium. The 2008 season would be his last, as Perez was released the following year after failing to report to spring training. He was 44 years old
