Dustin Diamond, most know him as Screech from Saved By the Bell, has completed his first round of chemo after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Apparently it is stage 4 small cell carcinoma commonly referred to as advanced lung cancer, but in Dustin’s case … we’re told the cancer started elsewhere in his body before the lungs. His next round of chemo is being scheduled soon. His team says he will also begin physical therapy, and adds that Dustin is keeping a positive outlook and is looking forward to spending more time with his girlfriend. We’re told he’s also enjoying playing his bass guitar (learning songs by Tool and Foo Fighters) and video games … and making videos for his fans on social media.

There was apparently a rumor going around that MEGAN THEE STALLION was dropping the charges against TORY LANEZ for allegedly shooting her. Well, it’s not true. Megan called it “fake news”. All that happened was that the first court date got pushed back because of the inauguration. She also blamed Tory for trying to discredit her . . . quote, “That whole team figures out ways to create doubt with my story every week and the media eats it up.” Megan also had some harsh words for Tory . . . quote, “[B-word] you shot me and my story not changing and [B-word] you going to jail.”

I don’t remember him having that much on top.” Quote, “Can someone bookmark ‘Garth Brooks hair transplant’ so we can address it a more appropriate time? Thank you.” Quote, “Between Biden and Garth Brooks it’s a huge day in America for hair plugs.”
Garth hasn’t commented , but the photos are clear as day, so he’ll have to say something eventually, right?

Haskins was drafted by Washington back in 2019 and finished 3-10 in his two seasons. He opened this year as the started but was benched in the 5th game as Kyle Allen took over. He also got caught up in some COVID violations that led to the team releasing him.
So a rumor is coming out from Japan that the government met and is trying to decided if the 2021 Olympic Games will have to be canceled due to COVID.

The Miami Heat are adding something new to their efforts to ensure the safety of their fans: COVID-SNIFFING DOGS. In a video on their website, the team explains that fans will be asked to stand in screening areas before being admitted. The Covid-19 detection dogs will then walk past each person . . . and if the dog doesn’t stop by you, you’re clear. HOWEVER, if the dog signals you by sitting down next to you, you and your group will be removed from the line and denied entry into the arena. Someone working on the plan says, quote, “It turned out that training the dogs is a relatively quick process, and results were surprisingly good and promising. A dog is capable of detecting the presence of the coronavirus within 10 seconds. Finland’s airport is using the detection dogs, which they say have “an accuracy level of nearly 100% . . . even five days before actual symptoms appear.”
