People, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard this or not, but not drinking alcohol can do WONDERS for the mind, body, and soul.
To clarify, I had three beers last night — what I meant was that I didn’t go out at all this weekend and folks, let me tell you, I’m feeling swell.
Creativity and motivation at their highest since the beginning of winter (the sun now being out past 6 p.m. certainly helps) and I’ve gotten back on my gym grind as spring is merely weeks away. So, for all of you out there currently in the midst of a Winter Slump, give the partying a rest for a weekend and I promise you’ll thank me on the other side of Sunday.
Anyway, to COED’s Quick Fix: Everything You Need To Know Today.
-Tom Brady — who looks like he sucked a littttleee too much youth out of his son with that plastic ass face of his — cooked Stephen Colbert in a beer chug.
-Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix stand-up special came out today:
–Game Of Thrones prequel news for ya headtop, via Hollywood Reporter:
Speaking at a panel titled “The Best of HBO” at the INTV conference in Israel on Tuesday, Francesca Orsi, HBO senior vp of drama, said the network has budgeted the Game of Thrones spinoffs near the level of the original series, and above the budget GoT had in its first few seasons. “$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do. We are going big,” Orsi said.
Given the phenomenal success of GoT, Orsi said “it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it,” noting the network is planning “three, four, five spinoffs” of the original series.
-Yes, the Spurs are without Kawhi Leonard, but the Rockets continue to look more and more like a legit threat to win the NBA title every day:
-The Champions League resumes today with Roma vs Shakhtar and Manchester United vs Sevilla, but everyone has their eyes on tomorrow’s headliner: Barcelona vs Chelsea.
-NFL Free Agency kicks off tomorrow, with Kirk Cousins’ landing spot being the biggest story in the league. As a Jets fan, let me be on record: while I think Kirk Cousins can win a Super Bowl, I do not want him on the Jets & am desperately hoping he signs with the Vikings. The Vikings are ready and the Jets are not. All of this is me just praying Gang Green somehow land Baker Mayfield, AKA So Thiccc & So Clean Clean Johnny Manziel.
-Some early NFL moves: Jags WR Allen Robinson plans to sign with the Bears, Sammy Watkins is signing with the Chiefs, and I still don’t understand how that isn’t tampering if the league year still hasn’t officially started yet. Oh, the NFL and their bananaland rules/standards.
-March Madness OFFICIALLY begins today, Y’all, with two First Four matchups. To all my fellow gamblers out there, the night is dark and full of terrors, so may the odds be ever in your favor.
