If you can’t get enough of “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” you’ll love this. There will be one more episode of reality docuseries. Los Angeles Dodger Justin Turner – one of the show’s super fans – tweeted out Jeff Lowe’s announcement, which you can see on the right. Look for it for it in a week.
Meanwhile, Joe Exotic has been talking from prison. Netflix tweeted out a video of him answering questions. One of the things he wants his fans to know is that he’s through with the Carole Baskin saga. In case you missed it – or haven’t watched yet – Joe is serving 22 years for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill Baskin.
If you are an NFL fan who loves watching the NFL draft every year to see young men step up to the podium and while holding up a team jersey and wearing their new team’s hat on their head—you’re in for something a little different this month. Because you may just see their heads popping up on a Zoom screen.
This after NFL vice president Troy Vincent sent letters to several prospects inviting them to participate “live” in the NFL draft in three weeks.
“We hope that you will start your NFL journey with us as part of the NFL family,” Vincent wrote in the letter that was sent to prospective early selections in the draft. “At this time, we are working on the plan for draft. As you can imagine, it is a bit of a moving target with all that is going on.
“We are contemplating several options that we will be communicating to you once details are confirmed. We want to ensure that you and your family stay safe while we develop the best way to give you a great experience and highlight your accomplishments as you are drafted into the NFL.”
Vincent asked the players not to publicize the invitation. Hey, he didn’t ask me not to.
Which is why we now know that instead of watching a player hug Roger Goodell with every selection—we can watch a few of these young men hugging people they actually like.
There were a TON of characters on “Game of Thrones”. Before the sixth season even aired, “Business Insider” said there were already 553. There are more than 2,100 characters in the books up to this point. So one bored, social distancing writer put together a ranking of the 52 “main” characters on the show. They noted that a lot of thought was put into it, but it wasn’t meant to be a super serious list.
Let’s start with the 10 WORST . . . the ones that were 52nd to 43rd on the list, starting with the worst one.
- Viserys Targaryen . . . Daenerys’ brother.
- Rickon . . . The youngest Stark brother.
- Robb Stark . . . The oldest Stark brother.
- Stannis . . . Robert Baratheon’s youngest brother.
- Bran Stark . . . The main Stark kid. He’s the one who was pushed out the window in Season 1, which set the whole series in motion.
- Roose Bolton . . . The “father” of Ramsay Bolton.
- Daario . . . He served as Daenerys’ advisor and enforcer.
- Ned Stark . . . The patriarch of House Stark at the beginning of the series.

- Qyburn . . . He’s the former maester who did all those weird scientific experiments.
- Olenna Tyrell . . . She was the funny matriarch behind House Tyrell.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a stop to major sports with increasing concerns for whether or not the 2020 college football season will start on time. As coaches and college administrators continue to navigate their way through an unprecedented time, there is reportedly talk about moving the upcoming season into 2021.
One possibility being discussed around the NCAA is playing the season in spring 2021. The idea, which has reportedly been talked about by coaches and administrators, would allow teams more time to prepare for a potential season.
Even if the college football season could be moved to spring 2021, the consequences would likely be devastating for colleges across the country. As schools might have to cut down to just football, basketball, and four women’s sports due to budgetary restrictions.
The NCAA already canceled March Madness and spring sports, which could cost it more than $400-million in revenue. If the 2020 college football season doesn’t happen, the NCAA could lose billions and hundreds of universities across the country would feel the financial fallout.
Something tells me these AREN’T going to be the top trending baby names this year. A 27-year-old woman named Preeti Verma in Raipur, in central India gave birth to twins last week. And she named the boy “Covid” . . . and the girl “Corona.”
She says, quote, “Me and my husband wanted to make the day memorable. Indeed the virus is dangerous and life-threatening, but its outbreak made people focus on sanitation, hygiene, and other good habits. [So] we thought about these names.”
Well, a new survey asked people if they think those are good or bad names for babies born right now . . . and 85% said they’re bad names. Only 4% said good names.
This has been a rough year for Corona beer. Earlier this year, when people first started hearing rumblings about something called “coronavirus,” it actually affected Corona’s sales because people thought the two were connected.
And now, more bad news. The Mexican government has shut down Corona’s production through at least the end of this month because it’s been deemed a non-essential business.
The company that handles Corona’s distribution in the U.S. says that even with the shutdown, they still have, quote, “ample supply to meet consumer demand” . . . so there shouldn’t be a shortage anytime soon.
