Pharmacist: “Go ask Alice.”

Just let me hear some screamin’ guitar.
Yesterday/ last night, Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy were grouped together and each birdied their final hole. Very cool. How is Tiger playing? He birdied the final three holes and outdrove big-hitter McIlroy on the 18. Great theater!
On this day: Frenchman Jean Claude-Killy completes a clean sweep of the alpine skiing events at the Grenoble Winter Olympics when he wins the slalom; also takes out the downhill and giant slalom.
How about those maggot Philadelphia fans at the Super Bowl (I assume it was them) who booed rival Cowboy Dak Prescott when he was presented the NFL Man-of-the-Year award. Disgraceful!
This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Kourtney Kardashian has rolled out her latest vitamin called “Lemme Purr”. Said Kardashian’s Instagram post, “You know what they say…you are what you eat. We combined real pineapple and Vitamin C with the power of clinically-studied SNZ 1969™ probiotics to target vaginal health and pH levels that support freshness and taste.” Gynecologists and other women’s health experts promptly called out the reality television star and her new product and said the promises of the product were “purely misogynistic and anti-feminist.”
In a 4-game stretch last week, the Celtics made 81 3-pointers and 81 2-pointers. If I want to watch a 3-point contest, I’ll just tune in tomorrow night.

Go away: Ime Udoka, former Celtics’ head coach suspended for banging two members of staff. Knucklehead.
BTW, the Celtics swept this year’s season series with Detroit. That is just nice to hear for those of us who remember the rivalry from the 80’s.
Are you ready for the XFL which kicks off tomorrow?
Congratulations to the Northeastern Huskies’ men’s hockey team, I guess, for winning the Beanpot championship 3-2 over Harvard… in a shootout. Under the new rules regarding overtime in the Beanpot, this was the first-ever shootout in the tournament’s history. In the eyes of the NCAA, both teams were credited with a tie. DOH!
There was an article out last Saturday about George Toma, otherwise known as the “God of Sod.” The 94-year-old had tended to every Super Bowl field over his career and announced that this year’s would be his last. Well, what a way to go out as players were slipping and sliding all over the State Farm Stadium on Sunday. The field was a disgrace! The Sodfather, meh.
New Mexico State fired first-year men’s basketball coach Greg Heiar on Tuesday, days after the school canceled the remainder of the Aggie’s season. Yet another casualty of hazing allegations across the country, all sports, all levels. Too bad.
Nettie’s House of Spaghetti in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, has decided to ban children under 10 from its restaurant citing noise levels, lack of space for high chairs and “crazy messes” kiddos sometimes leave behind. “We love kids, we really do!” said the restaurant’s social media accounts. Ya.
Ndamukong Suh (big punk in my book), had chosen Tampa Bay, the LA Rams and this year the Philadelphia Eagles as teams to sign with over the past few years. Each team went to the Super Bowl. An article I read questioned what his secret was. His secret!? This past season he signed with Philly after week 10 when the Eagles were 9-1 and then favored to win the Super Bowl. Secret my ass!

Residents of East Palestine, Ohio, are continuing to speak out about the health effects they’re experiencing after toxic chemicals were released in their community in early February. A Norfolk Southern train carrying toxic chemicals such as vinyl chloride, benzene and butyl acrylate derailed, forcing officials to burn the roughly 20 cars to prevent a deadly explosion.
Good news: Michael Jordan donated $10M to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Man, that guy has given away a lot of money over the years to countless causes.
Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: The Kansas City Chiefs are favorites (+575) to win the Super Bowl next season.

Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me”
