A Russian woman is selling their magical cat that has “Wish Granting” capabilities

  • The asking price for the cat is $127,000
  • The woman says that she has tested the cat’s effectiveness three times
  • She says that the wishes only come to fruition for the owner of the cat
  • The woman wants to share the cat’s magical powers with other people

The woman claims that the cat was responsible for her getting two apartments and a car, simply by asking the cat to grant her wish. They say that a fourth wish hasn’t happened so they are willing to let the cat go and help another family out. I bet the fourth wish was for $127,000

The most expensive piece of ham has just been sold

  • The $14,100 piece of ham was produced by an Iberian ham producer from Spain

  • Guinness has already certified the ham as the most expensive in the world

Last time I checked, a ham sandwich at Kennedy’s on 7th and monument was $4.90

Last week, the MLB announced that up to 11,500 fans will be permitted to attend the 2020 National League championship series and World Series games held at Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers.

A former marketing executive was allegedly scolded by his bosses for being “Too American” wearing Khaki pants to work. Gray Hollett, the former chief marketing officer at Boyden World Corporation, a high-profile consulting and talent firm. He says one of the managing partners in the company from Germany began making “frequent derogatory” comments about Hollett’s nationality, saying he was “too American” and needed to be “more European,” the suit says. He says that he was once chastised for wearing khaki pants, a button-down shirt, and a pullover sweater during a board meeting. He was eventually fired in January. He believes he was discriminated against.

Who does this guy think he is? Jake from State Farm?

It might be time to look through all your shoeboxes filled with sports trading cards…because prices of many of the cards are skyrocketing. Industry experts say that – because of the pandemic – these cards have never been more popular. We’re all sitting around… with nothing to do… so we’re buying and selling rookie cards of basketball stars like Michael Jordan and LeBron James, along with baseball stars like Mike Trout. It seems football and baseball cards are all doing extremely well – but prices of basketball cards are increasing the most. 

Around the NFL…

Dwayne Haskins has been benched & demoted all the way to 3rd string by Ron Revera and the Washington Football Team. Kyle Allen will be the starter and Alex Smith will serve as backup

Haskins only started 14 games in college and 11 in the pros. Washington is 1-3.

The Chargers vs. Saints game this coming Monday night may be moved to Indianapolis not because of Covid but because of Hurricane Delta….In 2005 the Saints were forced to play all their games on the road due to Katrina…memo to the NFL….”Move that game to Tom Benson Hall of Fame stadium!”
