It’s official, the NBA season will start December 22. They will play a 72 game schedule instead of a normal 82. Cavaliers haven’t played since the second week of March. While the Lakers will only enjoy a seven week layoff, which is the shortest in NBA history.

Police in Dallas, Georgia, at Chick-Fila restaurant arrested Kimberly George Ragsdale after she she claimed to be an FBI agent and that she should get her food for free. When police showed up she continued to claim she was a Federal Agent. 

She even went as far as talking into her shirt as if she had a hidden microphone

She was charged with impersonating a public officer. 

Major league baseball awards continue to be announced by the Baseball writers’ Association of America. Brewers righty reliever Devin Williams and Mariners center fielder Kyle Lewis have won the 2020 Jackie Robinson National League and American League Rookie of the Year awards.

The new Kevin Costner/Diane Lane film, “Let Him Go,” is the new Number one movie at the box office and it only made $4.1 million its first weekend showing in 2,454 locations. In all honesty, that’s about the most any film has earned in the COVID-era. According to reports, approximately 48% of all North American theaters are currently open.

“Can you remember the last movie you saw at a theater or better yet, when would you go back to a theater?”

Wonder if the Sox knew about this before they hired him. 76-year-old Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa has been charged with DUI. La Russa was charged with driving under the influence after he allegedly ran his car into a curb in February, leaving it smoking on the side of a Phoenix-area road. When reached by ESPN on Monday night, La Russa said, “I have nothing to say,” and he hung up his “flip”  phone.

Yesterday, we told you about McDonald’s getting into the plant based food game. Now, Arby’s is celebrating the launch of their deep-fried turkey sandwiches with a…Deep Fried Turkey Pillow. It’s actually a real pillow designed to slip over your head and help you have “the best turkey sleep of your life.” It basically looks like a turkey. ON your head. 

If you want to buy one, they’re $59.95 and being sold on arbysdeepfriedturkeypillow.com. Good luck, they’re currently “sold out!”

There appears to be growing consensus around who will be the Number 1 pick in next week’s NBA Draft.

And if all the reports are correct—the top NBA pick will be LaMelo Ball. The only question is whether the Minnesota Timberwolves will use the top pick or trade out. This years Draft takes place one week from tomorrow. 

We didn’t get to see March madness last year but it looks as though we will have an NCAA basketball season. The first AP poll of the year is out and Gonzaga is the preseason number one team in the nation.

On November 28th, Iron Mike Tyson is expected to make his highly anticipated return to boxing when he squares off against Roy Jones, Jr. Prior to that, he’s doing some press, which has led to at least one interesting revelation. Now that it’s ancient history, Tyson has revealed he was able to use his son’s pee to fool drug testers in the past. At one point, he also used his wife’s, but went back to the kid’s…just in case she ended up pregnant or something. He didn’t want to eat your children after all.
