Eight people died during TRAVIS SCOTT’s Astroworld Festival in Houston on Friday night, after the crowd unexpectedly surged toward the stage.  The victims ranged in age from 14 to 27. In addition, 25 people were hospitalized with injuries, and hundreds were treated at the scene.  There were about 50,000 people at the show.  It was supposed to be a two-day event, but obviously, Saturday’s activities were canceled. Authorities haven’t figured out yet what caused the stampede, but some people think it could have been DRUG SPIKING. There are reports that some people in the crowd were injecting unexpected concertgoers with drugs, in the area where the surge first began.  A security guard was even pricked in the neck and passed out, and had to be revived with Narcan.

But that probably wouldn’t explain thousands of people . . . or even TENS OF THOUSANDS of people . . . rushing forward all at once. But there WERE people who tried to sound the alarm.  Two people actually climbed a ladder to get to a cameraman, and begged him to do something.  One of them was even shouting that someone was DEAD.  But he didn’t listen.   Someone also posted video of Travis seeing an ambulance trying to make its way through the crowd, stopping for a few seconds, then resuming the show, and telling the crowd to, quote, “make this mother[effing] ground shake.”  There are also videos of fans chanting “Stop the show,” as well as a clip that APPEARS to show Travis actually looking down at paramedics trying to resuscitate someone, and ignoring it. A report by the “Houston Chronicle” says that Live Nation made the call to shut down the show after multiple people collapsed, around 9:38 P.M.  But Travis kept on playing, and ended his set at around 10:15. What’s not known is if Travis was ever notified of that decision. Not surprisingly, there are already lawsuits against Travis and Live Nation . . . but one of them also names DRAKE as a defendant, because he supposedly helped incite the crowd.

 

Terence Wilson — who went by the stage name Astro, performed with UB40 until 2013 who rose to fame in the 1980s with hits like “Red Red Wine” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love” has died at the age of 64, his band confirmed. He died after a short illness.

 

GEORGE CLOONEY wrote a letter to Britain’s “Daily Mail” tabloid, asking them to stop posting pictures of his children.  Why?  Because it could make them targets for international terrorists. George isn’t just being paranoid.  His wife AMAL is a human rights attorney, which often involves, quote, “confronting and putting on trial terrorist groups.” And George says, quote, “We take as much precaution as we can to keep our family safe.  We cannot protect our children if any publication puts their faces on their cover. “We have never sold a picture of our kids, we are not on social media and never post pictures because to do so would put their lives in jeopardy.  Not paranoid jeopardy but real-world issues, with real-world consequences.”

Eternals is a big hit at the box office opening in the No. 1 spot at the box office. The movie debuted at $71 million, falling just short of the $75 million to $80 million projections. Eternals took in $90.7 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total so far to $161.7 million.

 Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is temporarily shutting down due to the severity of the injury sustained by star Letitia Wright. Wright was injured in late August while shooting a sequence with a stunt rig on-location in Boston. At the time, Marvel Studios said Wright’s injury would ultimately not impact the shooting schedule of the film. But she has been in London since and they have done all the filimng they can do without her. They have to reconfigure the shoot to get things back on track for an early 2022 restart. The shutdown is expected to begin the week of Thanksgiving. They already pushed back the release from July 8, 2022, to Nov. 11, 2022. AS of now that new release date remains intact

 

After everything that’s gone on between VIN DIESEL and DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON, Vin now wants The Rock back for the 10th “Fast and Furious” movie.  And it’s all in the name of the late PAUL WALKER. In an Instagram post addressed to, quote, “My little brother Dwayne”, Vin says, quote, “As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house.  There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes. “But the time has come.  Legacy awaits.  I told you years ago that I was going to fulfill my promise to Pablo.  I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! “I say this out of love . . . but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play.  Hobbs can’t be played by no other.  I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny.”

 

EMILIO ESTEVEZ will not be returning for the second season of the Disney+ series, “Mighty Ducks: Game Changers”. Emilio will not comply with the mandatory COVID vaccination requirement, which seems to be a standard these days on production sets.  Creative differences also played a factor in his not returning. Emilio’s character will now be written out.

 

“The Righteous Gemstones” season two trailer is out, and it includes ERIC ANDRE and JASON SCHWARTZMAN.  It premieres January 9th on HBO and HBO Max. The trailer is on the blog.

 

Here is a list of actors who turned down doing a sequel or reboot:

  1. KIM CATTRALLdid not want to return for the new “Sex and the City” series, “And Just Like That”.  In a 2019 interview when asked if she’d return, she simply said, “Never . . . it’s a no from me.”

 

  1. KEANU REEVESturned down “Speed 2” to play Hamlet in a 1995 Canadian production.  Fox didn’t work with him again until 2008 with “The Day the Earth Stood Still”.

Last night the Blues finished their California road trip with a 4-1 against the Ducks.  13 seconds into the game, Brandon Saad scored to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.  And that was it.  The Ducks scored once in the second and three times in the 3rd to seal the deal.  Up next for the Blues is a game in Winnepeg against the Jets.  Tuesday’s puck drop is at 7PM.

A record five St. Louis players won National League Gold Gloves, with first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, second baseman Tommy Edman, third baseman Nolan Arenado, center fielder Harrison Bader and left fielder Tyler O’Neill earning the fielding honor Sunday. Arenado won his ninth Gold Glove it’s the fourth for Goldschmidt won his first since 2017 with Arizona and this is the second in a row for O’Neill.  The list for the rest of the league is posted on the blog so you can check it out there.   ((LINK: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/32580108/record-five-st-louis-cardinals-capture-gold-glove-awards-full-list-winners-announced))

Here are some high school football results from over the weekend.  If you are looking for the Class 4 or lower results there is a link on the blog.  Seckman, Rockwood Summit, Eureka, Zumwalt North, Chaminade, Holt, CBC, SLUH, Francis Howell and Troy all got wins.  Action continues this Friday. ((https://www.mshsaa.org/activities/footballscoreboard.aspx))

 

We will get to some our PICK EM results here in a second…but first….in the Jags/Bills game…Josh Allen had a hell of a game.  But unfortunately for Buffalo…it was Jacksonville defensive end Josh Allen that had the good game.  Yesterday – for the first time in NLF history – Josh Allen sacked Josh Allen – making that the VERY FIRST time that anyone sacked someone with the same exact name.  Also – to add to the weirdness – Josh Allen intercepted a pass from Josh Allen and Josh Allen also recovered a fumble…that was fumbled by…Josh Allen.  Jags ended up winning 9-6.

 

Tonight – in a game that doesn’t matter for our pickem challenge….the Bears are in Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers.  Kick off is scheduled for 7:15

 

Mizzou took on #1 ranked Georgia on the road and everyone was expecting a blowout…and…it pretty much was.  Georgia got the 43-6 win. The next game for the Tigers is against South Carolina in Columbia on Saturday at 3PM.  Illinois picked up a road win against Minnesota.  They play on the 20th against 19th ranked Iowa.

Speaking of college football….Arizona defeated a short-handed Cal 10-3 in its Homecoming game, snapping a nation-leading 20-game losing streak. It’s the Wildcats’ first win since beating Colorado, October 5th, 2019. It was Arizona’s first home win since defeating UCLA on September 28th, 2019.

Chris Wondolowski scored his 171st and final career goal on Sunday night to help the San Jose Earthquakes tie 1-1 with FC Dallas. The all-time MLS goals leader retired after the game, finishing a 18-year career. He scored five goals in his final season. Neither of the two teams is playoff-bound.

Kyle Larson won. That was the expected result of NASCAR’s season-ending championship race, right? Larson closed his comeback season in NASCAR with his first championship Sunday, as he capped his return from a nearly yearlong suspension with a title-winning victory at Phoenix Raceway.  Chase Elliott, the reigning champion and NASCAR’s most popular driver, led 94 laps but finished fourth. The win by Larson halted Toyota’s bid to sweep championship weekend. Toyota drivers won the Truck and Xfinity Series titles to open the weekend, but Larson gave Chevrolet the biggest trophy of them all.
