WOODY HARRELSON was at a rooftop bar at the Watergate Hotel in D.C. on Wednesday night with one of his daughters, when some drunk guy started taking pictures of them.  Woody POLITELY asked the guy to stop, and he LUNGED at Woody and tried to grab him by the throat.  So Woody SLUGGED HIM. Cops questioned the man, and charges are pending.  But Woody isn’t in any trouble, since the punch was obviously self-defense.

TOM CRUISE is trying to kill the stuntman industry. He only just finished filming “Mission: Impossible 7”, and he’s already practicing crazy stunts for Part 8. Tom is going to fly a World War 2 biplane called the Boeing Stearman Model 75.  This particular one was built in 1943, and in the movie, it’s going to be in a chase with another old aircraft. A source says, quote, “It’s obviously a highly skilled task but as usual he has no plans to cut any corners or bring in a stuntman . . . trying to film jaw-dropping scenes with an 80-year-old plane is particularly dangerous.”

ADELE’s new album was heavily influenced by her recent divorce . . . and she thinks it might inspire people to . . . BREAK UP. Adele said in a “Vogue UK” interview, quote, “Can you imagine couples listening to [the song about my divorce] in the car?  It’d be so awkward.  I think a lot of women are going to be like, ‘I’m done.'” There’s one particular song she included for her son.  Quote, “I wanted to show Angelo what I expect him to treat his partner like . . . after going through a divorce, my requirements are sky-high.  There’s a very big pair of shoes to fill.” Her divorce didn’t end on a bad note though.  She said it just wasn’t right for her anymore.  Quote, “I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew.  I wasn’t miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first.”

Former NBA players are caught up in a scheme to defraud the league’s health and welfare plan.  The players scammed their way into money by claiming false medical and dental expenses. The fraud was worth $4 million. Prosecutors charged 18 players in the case. Former player Terrence Williams arranged the setup. Other known names attached to the allegations include Tony Allen, Glen Davis, and Shannon Brown. According to ESPN, the 18 players combined to make $343 million in their NBA careers aside from any endorsements or shoe deals.

The MLB post season continued last night.  The Astros made easy work of the White Sox 6-1.  The Rays shut out the Red Sox 5-0 in the late game.  Tonight, four games on the scheduled.  The White Sox and Astros play game 2 at 1PM.  The Brewers and Braves get their series started at 3:30.  The Red Sox and Rays play game 2 at 6 and the Dodgers and Giants start their series at 8:30PM.

Randy Arozarena’s supply of October magic never seems to just keep on rolling. Arozarena — the leading candidate for American League Rookie of the Year — made history last night by becoming the first player in playoff history to steal home and hit a home run in the same game. The stolen base marked the first steal of home in a playoff game since 2016. Rays manager Kevin Cash said that Arozarena had been asking him about stealing home for weeks. Arozarena also ranks second for the most home runs in a 20-game postseason span. His 11 career postseason homers are five more than any other rookie in MLB history.

The Rams continued to roll as they beat the Seahawks last night 26-17.  The Seahawks played most of the second half without their starting QB.  Russell Wilson went out with a severely sprained finger and Geno Smith took over.  It was not enough magic to pull out the win.  The Rams are now 4-1 and Seattle is 2-3.

The Blues and the Blue Jackets play tonight at Enterprise Center.  Puck drop is scheduled for 7PM.  The Blues start their regular season on the road in Colorado on the 16th.

The NHL and NHL Players’ Association announced Thursday that Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price is taking leave from the team to voluntarily enter the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program. The player assistance program was created in 1996, and it assists players and their families with “mental health, substance abuse and other matters.” Price was already expected to miss the start of the 2021-22 regular season because of a non-COVID illness and recovery from offseason knee surgery.  The GM of the Canadiens said that he wasn’t thinking about Carey Price the hockey player…he was concerned about Carey Price the human.  Price’s wife put up a long Instagram post about mental health and Carey’s struggles with it.  The GM of the Canadiens also said he expects it to be 30 days…but at the same time wouldn’t be surprised if it was longer.

A 1911 “Shoeless” Joe Jackson autographed photograph by Frank W. Smith sold for $1.47 million, the most ever paid for a signed sports photograph. According to the auction company and the card and memorabilia grading giant PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator), it is the only known Jackson-signed photo of himself in existence. As for the $1.47 million price tag, while it may seem steep, even for a name synonymous with baseball lore like “Shoeless” Joe — he was banned from baseball for life in 1921, despite being acquitted in the Black Sox scandal of 1919 — there is reason for it. Jackson was notably illiterate and avoided signing documents if he could. His wife signed for him mostly after his playing days ended. This very photo sold in 2015 with Heritage Auctions for $179,250 — an increase of more than 720% in six years.

Ricardo Pepi is a name you’ll be hearing a lot of.  The 18-year-old FC Dallas striker, who was the hero in the U.S. men’s national team’s last World Cup qualifier in Honduras, opened October play with a pair of goals 13 minutes apart in the second half to give the U.S. a 2-0 win over Jamaica. The win is the U.S.’s third in just over six months, but the stakes were at their highest. Pepi opened the scoring in the 49th minute and doubled the lead in the 62nd, becoming the youngest U.S. player to score in consecutive World Cup qualifying matches. The U.S. continues its qualifying campaign on Sunday in Panama, while Jamaica heads home to face Canada.
