Happy Monday!

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.

The net worth of Bill Gates: $101.3 billion.

The net worth of Warren Buffett: $83.5 billion.

The price of a medium Dairy Queen Blizzard Treat: $4.09.

The price of a large Dairy Queen Blizzard Treat: $4.69.

With a price like that — the Blizzard, not the net worth — how could you not go for the large at Dairy Queen? Another thing that makes sense is that when you love what you do (or what you invest in, according to Mr. Buffett), good things will happen.

And how can you not love watching two titans of industry working at Dairy Queen for the day?

Well, that was a strange time for a couple of admired American billionaires. At least now Mr. Buffett knows what the upside down is…

P.S. There’s also this moment of pure gold. 

Well played, Bill Gates. 

Happy Monday!

Today’s Dateline: June 3, 2019.

The host of NBC’s ‘Dateline’: Keith Morrison.

The comedian who portrayed ‘Dateline’ host Keith Morrison on Saturday Night Live: Bill Hader.

NBC’s Today Show reporter Willie Geist does a Sunday morning program that includes reporting on current events as well as an interview with a power player or celebrity called “Sunday Sitdown.” Yesterday’s edition featured a sitdown with SNL great Bill Hader in which the hilarious impressionist and comedic actor — and now dramatic actor — discussed his wild and crazy journey to SNL that launched an equally wild and crazy acting career.

Ohhh…Well, that was fascinating. It’s safe to say Bill killed it…

Hopefully, you’ll leave an entertaining impression on the coming days.
