ADELE recently bought SYLVESTER STALLONE’s pad for $58 million. And it came with an interesting perk: A Rocky statue standing on the edge of the massive swimming pool. Yes, Stallone had a poolside Rocky statue, and now Adele has a poolside Rocky statue . . . because it’s still there. That doesn’t necessarily mean she’s keeping it, though. In addition to the statue, the house also has a gym, sauna, steam room, infinity pool, cigar room, screening room, bar, art studio, and two-story guest house. It’s in a gated community with neighbors including Denzel Washington, Magic Johnson, Justin Bieber, and Lisa Vanderpump.

Last night it was Game 6 between the Blues and the Wild at Enterprise Center. And, if the Blues got the win, they move on to round 2. Nick Leddy started the scoring for the Blues and he was followed by Ryan O’Reilly….and Tyler Bozak…and Vladi Tarasenko. The Wild DID score in the 3rd, but an empty netter by Colton Parayko was nailed to seal the deal…Blues win 5-1. Blues win the series 4-2. Now, the Blues will face the Avalanche in the 2nd round. We aren’t 100% sure yet, but it looks like the series COULD start as early as Monday in Colorado.
The Bruins avoided elimination and forced a game 7 against Carolina, the Oilers force a game 7 against the Kings….and it took OT but the Lightning did the same against Toronto. Tonight, another chance for the Penguins to knockout the Rangers, the Panthers have a chance to eliminate the Capitals, and the Flames can move on with a win against the Stars.
Yesterday at Busch the Cardinals lost to the Orioles 3-2. Despite Dylan Carlson’s solo homer and Stephen Matz’s pretty impressive day on the mound – including 7 strike outs – it was one pitch that pretty much did the Cards in. Tonight the Cards host the Giants. Jordan Hicks is scheduled to get the start. First pitch is scheduled for 7:15PM.
On Wednesday, Minnesota Twins pitcher YENNIER CANO took the mound to make his Major League debut . . . and proceeded to make history. But not necessarily in a good way. Cano threw his warmup pitches, then looked at his catcher for a sign and stepped on the rubber. But before he could throw his first official pitch, lightning flashed, and a rain delay was called. The game was never restarted. So Cano became only the second player in MLB history to be an official pitcher of record . . . without throwing even a single pitch to an opponent. The first was LARRY YOUNT. In 1971, he took the mound for the Houston Astros, but he injured his elbow during his warmup pitches and had to be taken out. It ended up being Larry’s ONLY Major League appearance.
The Miami Heat are moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals. They eliminated the 76ers last night. The Mavs survived and force a game 7 against the Suns. Today, the Bucks can knock out Boston and the Warriors can eliminate the Grizzlies.
As the NBA concludes its 75th season, the league has introduced new awards for the playoffs. Starting this year, the NBA will give MVP awards for the conference finals. The awards will be named after Magic Johnson for the Western Conference and Larry Bird for the Eastern Conference. Both Hall of Famers helped revolutionize the league in the 1980s. The Conference Finals trophies will honor basketball legends Bob Cousy and Oscar Robertson. Finally, the iconic NBA Finals trophy will get a makeover. One of the biggest changes to the Larry O’Brien trophy is the etching of past champions on the base. The first 75 champions will appear on the top level of the base, while future champions will be listed on the bottom base.
The NFL will open its 2022 season where the final game of last season kicked off — in SoFi Stadium, as the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams host the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 8. The Monday Night Football opener offers an intriguing storyline — Russell Wilson making his Denver Broncos debut against his old team, the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson guided the Seahawks to two Super Bowl appearances and nine winning seasons over 10 years. Other key Week 1 matchups include the Buccaneers at the Cowboys on Sunday night, a rematch of last season’s Thursday night opener; the Chargers hosting the Raiders; the Bengals at the Steelers, and the Chiefs making the trip west to play the Cardinals. You can see the link to the full 2022 NFL schedule there —> (LINK)
