The director of comedy movies like “Ghostbusters” (1 and 2), “Stripes”, “Kindergarten Cop”, and several others, Ivan Reitman, died in his sleep Saturday night in California.  He was 75.   “Ghostbusters” was written by Dan Aykroyd, Reitman, and Harold Ramis in a few days. Of note, Reitman liked working with a lot of the same people in his movies.  His films “Junior”, “Twins”, and “Kindergarten Cop”, all starred Arnold Schwarzenegger.  “Meatballs”, “Stripes”, and “Ghostbusters” 1 and 2, with Bill Murray.  That also starred Sigourney Weaver, who Reitman would direct again in “Dave”. 

Apparently Super Bowl weekend is slow every year. But Death on the Nile managed $12.8 million to be number at the box office. Marry Me, with Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson released simultaneously in theaters and on Peacock for paid subscribers. That opened to an estimated $8 million. And sandwiched in between there, beating a Jennifer Lopez movie Jackass Forever ($8.1 million). Spider-Man: No Way Home, lands at No. 4 with  $7.7 million and Sing 2 rounds out the Top 5 

KEVIN SMITH apparently was tasked with using the word “populist” so when he was at my house the other day  I asked him about “Spider-Man: No Way Home” not getting Oscar nominated (LINK)

The Super Bowl wasn’t the only action in L.A. this weekend.  On Friday night, JUSTIN BIEBER performed at the Pacific Design Center, then held an after-party at a place called The Nice Guy. Well, at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday, KODAK BLACK and his crew were hanging outside when a brawl broke out.  Kodak himself even jumped in and started throwing hands. But it didn’t last very long before SHOTS started ringing out, and everyone ran for cover.  Kodak and two other people were hit, and a fourth person was injured in some other way. Kodak was only hit in the leg though, and he should be fine.  There’s no word yet who did the shooting (LINK)

There were rumors heading into Super Bowl weekend that the NFL had vetoed a plan for EMINEM to kneel during the halftime show.  Either those rumors were false or Eminem just did not care. Because after performing “Lose Yourself”, he did indeed take a knee for a full minute. There was also a rumor that they didn’t want DR. DRE to sing the line, “still not loving police”, from his classic track “Still D.R.E.”  But he left it in.

KENDRICK LAMAR sang “Alright”, a track that became sort of a protest song.  But he censored the line “and we hate po-po,” by dropping the “po-po”. MARY J. BLIGE was pretty drama-free . . . see what I did there?  She looked and sounded fantastic on “No More Drama” and “Family Affair”. SNOOP DOGG kicked off the show and was quickly joined by Dre . . . and the two of them ended the show as well. There were two surprise guests:  50 CENT did “In Da Club”, which he started while hanging upside down . . . and ANDERSON .PAAK played drums on “Lose Yourself”. Was it a good halftime show?  It probably depends on your musical taste.  The energy was up and the performances were on-point.  But there wasn’t much worth looking at. The set was okay, and there were plenty of dancers, but the camera stayed mostly on the performers. 

Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold over 160 million copies with the Grand Theft franchise selling 370 million copies worldwide! GTA 5 is the highest-selling game in the US over the last ten years.  Developer Rockstar Games has also confirmed that it’s finally working on the next game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Mr. Cudi called Kanye, quote, “[an effin’ dinosaur]” and “everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about ur albums since I met u.  Ima pray for you brother.” 

Kanye also made a more direct threat, in a new song called “City of Gods” with FIVIO FOREIGN and ALICIA KEYS.

Some love songs aren’t love songs at all (LINK)

  1. “The One I Love”, R.E.M. The line, “A simple prop to occupy my time” should tip you off that this isn’t exactly a functional relationship.  But Michael Stipe once said, quote, “It’s probably better that they think it’s a love song at this point.” 
  1. “Every Breath You Take”,  The Police.  Stingsays it’s about, quote, “jealousy and surveillance and ownership.”  A couple once told him it was their wedding song, and he replied, “Well, good luck.” 
  1. “Kiss on My List”,  Hall & Oates.  Daryl Hallexplains, quote, “It’s an anti-love song.  It means that your kiss is only on the list of the best things.  It’s not the only thing.” 
  1. “Crash Into Me”,  Dave Matthews Band.  The dude is peeping at the woman through a window.  Dave says, quote, “He’s the kind of person you’d call the police on.” 
  1. “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You”,  Heart.  A woman picks a guy up on the side of the road, uses him to get pregnant, then tells him to kick rocks.  Ann Wilsoncalls it, quote, “kind of an empty, weird, sort of hateful story.” 
  1. “One”,  U2.  The song is about people overcoming their differences and learning to live with each other.  And Bono has said it’s more specifically about a boy coming out to his super religious dad. 
  1. “One Way or Another”,  Blondie.  It was actually inspired by a guy who was STALKING Debbie Harry.  Although she says, quote, “I tried to inject a little levity into it to make it more lighthearted.  It was a survival mechanism

Sports Report 1

Before we get to the Super Bowl stuff – lets talk Blues hockey.  The team EASILY took care of the Black Hawks on Saturday.  Goals from Perron, Joshua, Tarasenko, Sundqvist, and Kyrou gave the Blues the 5-1 win.  Up next is a game up in Ottawa against the Senators tomorrow night.  Puck drop is scheduled for 6PM.

Super Bowl 56 is in the books.  The L.A. Rams came back from behind to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals, 23 to 20.  Rams receiver Cooper Kupp was named the Super Bowl MVP.  He caught two touchdown passes. If you care at all, you’ve watched the game by now.  So rather than a full recap, here’s a breakdown of the WINNERS and LOSERS of the Super Bowl.

WINNER:  The L.A. Rams, obviously.

WINNER:  The City of Los Angeles.  The game was played at SoFi Stadium in L.A., which meant that it was basically a home game.  The halftime show was an L.A.-themed hip-hop extravaganza.  Also, it was the Rams’ first championship since the 1999 season, but the team wasn’t in L.A. . . . they were the St. Louis Rams at that time.  L.A.’s only previous Super Bowl win was the L.A. Raiders in the 1983 season.

WINNER:  The Rams’ Defense.  They sacked Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow SEVEN times . . . six in the second half when it really counted.  And that was a HUGE boost to the Rams when their offense was sputtering before that final drive.

LOSER:  The Bengals.  The Bengals were in excellent position to win their first Super Bowl.  All they had to do was stop the Rams from scoring a touchdown on their final drive.  But they couldn’t get a stop when they needed it.

LOSER:  The Officials.  For most of the game they let the teams play and didn’t make it about the penalties.  There were only two in the first 58 minutes.  But in the final two minutes, there were a flurry of flags just before the Rams’ game-winning touchdown.

LOSER:  The Bengals’ Defense.  The Rams had the ball on their own 21-yard-line with about six minutes left, and needed to score a touchdown to stay in it.  That was 79 yards ahead of them. They cruised down the field to win it.

Both WINNER AND LOSER:  Rams receiver Odell Beckham Jr.  He started hot, and caught the first touchdown pass.  But then he got hurt and left the game in the second quarter.  He didn’t return.  That had to be frustrating . . . but since the Rams ended up winning, he’s more of a winner than a loser.

And for a real big loser….Super Bowl LVI wasn’t a good one for Mattress Mack. The Houston-area businessman wagered $9.5 million on the Cincinnati Bengals in Sunday’s big game, but the squad fell short with a 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He initially wagered about $4.5 million on the Bengals moneyline before adding another $5 million bet, the largest in Super Bowl history. That put $16,207,800 on the line through Caesars Sportsbook. Mack won $2.75 million in last year’s Super Bowl, successfully betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to beat the Kansas City Chiefs. There have also been big losses with these wagers, including his $2.4 million bet in the Kentucky Derby.

Former star NFL running back Adrian Peterson has been arrested for felony domestic violence. The incident took place at LAX after airport police got a call around 8:30 AM over a disturbance on an aircraft leaving LAX heading towards Houston. Sources say that the plane had to turn back around and link up with the gate again after a verbal and physical argument occurred between Peterson and his wife, Ashley. The ex-Minnesota Vikings running back was taken into custody. Ashley stayed on board and continued to Houston. The two were in town attending a Super Bowl event put on by DIRECTV. There’s still no info on what exactly caused the disturbance. A rep for the Petersons issued a statement on the incident: “Earlier today Adrian and his wife Ashley had a verbal argument on a flight, and he was removed from the plane. This is a private misunderstanding between husband and wife and we anticipate it will all be resolved shortly.” Peterson is best known for his time with the Minnesota Vikings, and was most recently with the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks during the 2021-2022 season.

The relationship between the Cardinals and QB Kyler Murray seems to be rocky lately, something that came to a head in their playoff loss to the Rams. Murray apparently asked to be taken out of the game near the end of the fourth quarter when it was clear Arizona was going to lose. And apparently, the team took note of that decision by Murray. Some sources say that the team looks at Murray as “self-centered, immature and (a) finger pointer.”

While you were watching the Super Bowl, Team USA was taking care of business in Beijing . . .First, 40-year-old Nick Baumgartner and his teammate Lindsey Jacobellis took gold in the mixed team snowboard cross early in the weekend.  Nick is our oldest athlete this year, and it’s his first Olympic medal.   Then yesterday, speed skater Erin Jackson won the women’s 500 meters.  She’s the first Black woman to ever win a speedskating medal, and it was gold. And we dominated the debut of women’s monobob:  Kaillie Humphries won gold and Elana Meyers Taylor took home the silver.  Also, in figure skating, ice dancers Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue secured the bronze medal. Also late last night, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva can continue to compete, despite failing a drug test in December.  That means she’ll be able to take part in the women’s short program tomorrow.  She’s the favorite to win. Last we checked, the U.S. team was in 3rd place in overall medals with 15, including 7 gold.  Here’s the latest leaderboard.

  1. Norway:  21. . . 9 gold, 5 silver, 7 bronze.
  2. Russia:  18. . . 4 gold, 6 silver, 8 bronze.
  3. USA:  15. . . 7 gold, 6 silver, 2 bronze.
  4. Canada:  15. . . 1 gold, 4 silver, 10 bronze.
  5. Germany:  14. . . 8 gold, 5 silver, 1 bronze.

And finally – Mizzou beat Mississippi on Saturday and play Arkansas tomorrow.  SLU takes on Saint Bonaventure today at 4PM. The two teams played on Friday where the Bonnies got the win.  And yesterday, #13th ranked Illinois beat Northwestern 73-66
