Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, this country's most wanted drug lord just got captured 

Columbia’s most-wanted drug lord has been captured by authorities. The capture of Dairo Antonio Usuga, known as ‘Otoniel’, is being heralded as the biggest blow to the country’s narcotics traffickers in decades. Otoniel became the leader of the ‘Clan del Golfo’ drug cartel following stints as a left-wing guerilla and a paramilitary. Columbia’s President compared the arrest to the fall of Pablo Escobar in the 90s. Who you might remember from the 100 movies and documentaries about him. (Additional Out) Probably had something to do with the five million dollar reward the US put on him. 

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, how much the fan who gave back Brady’s 600th TD ball missed out on 

A sports memorabilia expert says a Bucs fan missed out on $500k to $750k by giving back Tom Brady’s 600th TD ball. After catching the milestone touchdown during the Bucs-Bears game, that made Brady the first player in NFL history with 600 TD passes, receiver Mike Evans unknowingly handed it into the crowd. But the Bucs were able to convince the man to give the ball back for another ball and a $1,000 gift card. Which will buy him roughly four beers at Raymond James Stadium. (Additional Out) I assume the replacement ball had significantly more air in it. 

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, who will play Ken and Barbie in the new Barbie movie 

Ryan Gosling will play Ken opposite Margot Robbie’s Barbie in the upcoming Barbie movie. According to a report in Deadline the 40-year-old actor is in final negotiations to play the counterpart of the iconic Mattell doll. Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, the filmmakers behind Little Women and Marriage Story, will write and direct Barbie. And because we talked about this, the terrible Aqua song ‘Barbie Girl’ will be tuck in my head for four straight days. (Additional out) IE, it’ll be depressing. 

Tease: In _______ minutes, when Fauci thinks 5 to 11 year-olds will get shots 

Dr. Fauci sees Covid-19 shots for kids coming soon. Yesterday on ABC’s This Week Sunday Fauci said he’s optimistic that Pfizer’s vaccine will be approved for five to eleven-year-olds by the end of next week. FDA advisors will meet tomorrow after a new study showed that the Pfizer vaccine is 90% effective in younger kids. And 100% effective at driving a wedge between relatives. (Additional out) Because I’m being told they’re just smaller versions of us.
