Happy Monday!

What do I want my wish to be for my birthday?

Wishing that USWNT soccer star Alex Morgan was single…

Wait. I need to think more realistically about this. Alex Morgan isn’t single. What else do I really want that’s both fully achievable and would create an incomparable feeling of rejuvenation?

Oh, right. Dinosaurs eat people.

Maybe something with fewer teeth instead.

Happy Monday!

Just minutes ago (literally), the first official trailer for ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ dropped online by Sony Pictures Entertainment. It’s the third film in the series, but the immediate sequel to the 2017 movie ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ that was made without Robin Williams. The latest two films have, appropriately, been made with a different tone and direction than the original classic from 1995. And this new level of ‘Jumanji’ cinematic storytelling centered around a vintage video game called Jumanji gone awry has been surprisingly entertaining and interesting.

The primary cast includes Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. A couple of the newcomers to the series includes movie veterans Danny DeVito and Danny Glover.

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado…

What’s old is new again.

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ arrives in a theater near you this Christmas.

Let’s face it: Only Mick Jagger can move like Jagger.

Following a heart valve surgery for the rock ‘n roll icon just a few months ago, Mick Jagger is surprisingly back to doing what he does best. The “No Filter” tour started this past weekend in Chicago’s famed Soldier Field, proof that age nor a replaced heart valve will prevent the Rolling Stones from entertaining multiple generations of fans until the end of time.

Quick Rolling Stones member recap:

  • Mick Jagger (75-years-old)
  • Keith Richards (75-years-old)
  • Charlie Watts (78-years-old)
  • Ronnie Wood (72-years-old. He’s the band’s youngster)

Having attended the “Zip Code” tour back in May of 2015 in a packed Horseshoe with my dad, my dad’s brother, and my sister, the Stones bring out fans of literally all ages. At the concert I went to, there were kids and grandparents rocking with equal intensity and happiness. Simply incredible. That, ladies and gentlemen, is why rock ‘n roll will rock on and live on forever.

“Rock on” horns up!

Happy Monday!

Two wins, a +16 goal differential, zero goals against and six points. I’d say the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) has kicked off the 2019 Women’s World Cup with the right stuff with an astronomical first two games in Group F that began with a 13-nil win against Thailand.

The USWNT defeated Chile 3-nil yesterday. Here are the highlights from that game.

The third and final game in Group F for the USWNT will be against Sweden — a team that’s also earned six points — this Thursday at 3 p.m. ET. Both teams have already advanced to the knockout round, but the third game is still of consequence because it will determine potentially favorable or unfavorable matchups for the USWNT and Sweden in the knockout round.
