Sixers fans, NBA commentators, his coach and teammate are all unhappy with Ben Simmons performance in the playoffs after their game 7 loss to the Hawks last night.

Shaq said he would’ve knocked Simmons out if he was his teammate, head coach Doc Rivers threw him under the bus with a brutally honest post-game answer and teammate Joel Embiid admitted that Simmons passing up a wide-open dunk was the ‘turning point of the game’. Take it easy on him you guys, he’s only the 2nd best player on the team and an all-star who was scared to shoot for an entire series. (Additional out) Hence why he was named the MVP of the series, for Atlanta.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, tomorrow is officially a national holiday  

President Biden signed a bill making Juneteenth a national holiday immediately. Juneteenth, officially tomorrow, celebrates the emancipation of African Americans on the 19th of June every year. Most federal employees have today off and other business may close or have limited hours today. Several other businesses simply plan to miss the mark on social media. (Additional Out) And making it a national holiday only took us 158 years.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, bears have had enough  

A bear in Japan went on a rampage injuring four people. The brown bear had to be shot dead in Northern Japan after it tore through a residential area. A local resident in the city of Sapporo, which is due to host the Olympic Marathon at this summer’s Tokyo games, first reported seeing the bear on a road. Apparently even the bears in Japan are pissed about the Olympics. (Additional Out) Remember, if a bear ever charges you the best thing to do is push your friend down and then make a new friend.  

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, Victoria’s Secret goes a different route

Instead of scantily clad supermodels they’ve hired the ‘VS Collective’, seven women who’ll advise and promote the brand including soccer star Megan Rapinoe. I’m pretty sure the supermodels weren’t the issue, it’s the significantly cheaper alternatives to get the exact same thing. (Additional Out) But don’t shed a tear for the supermodels, I’m sure they’ll be fine.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, NASA needs our help naming something  

A mannequin is going to space and NASA needs our help naming it. When NASA’s Orion spacecraft takes off for the uncrewed Artemis 1 moon mission in November, it’s commander’s seat will have a mannequin with sensors to record flight data. Currently they’re calling it the ‘moonikin’, but they’re open for suggestions. You have until June 28th to weigh in on eight options via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Luckily, it always turns out well when you ask the internet to name something, right Mikey McMicrophone. (Additional out) But remember, when you name something you’re more emotionally impacted if it bursts into flames on reentry.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, what health experts are saying about the new variant  

The Delta Covid Variant is like ‘Covid on steroids’. That’s how former White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response described the variant first identified in India that’s now circulating in 80 countries. Currently the Delta variant accounts for roughly 10% of new cases here in the US and the CDC has labeled it a ‘variant of concern’ because its more transmissible and can cause more severe disease. Can we come up with another way to say somethings super serious than 'on steroids'? (Additional Out) We need scarier names for these variants so people will take them seriously.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, how many record high temps could be broken this week in the US  

About 300 high temperature records could be broken this week in the US. More than an eighth of the US population, over 40 million people, are on high alert for potentially deadly conditions. The heat and exceptional drought are fueling one of Arizona’s largest wildfires. Doctors also warn of pavement burns as record heat waves scorch several states. Hence why I do a dead sprint from the lounge chair to the pool. (Additional Out) General rule of thumb, if you can fry an egg on it, don’t walk barefoot on it.  

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, Biden returns to the US for a legislative showdown  

Biden returns home to a deadlocked legislature with little movement on an infrastructure or a voting rights bill. Moderate Democrat Joe Manchin said he supports several key pieces of a voting rights bill, including a ban on partisan gerrymandering. A bipartisan group trying to hash out an infrastructure deal met yesterday on Capitol Hill, but acknowledged afterward that there’s still a long way to go. Unfortunately, problems don’t solve themselves when you’re out of town. (Additional Out) Before Democrats give up and ultimately pass it on a party-line vote.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, the internet reacts to Rihanna’s revealing new leggings

Social media is having a field day with some calling them cheggings, a combo of leggings and chaps. The Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Leggings are available at SavageX dot com for $49.95. Not sure if you know this Rihanna, but not all of us ate responsibly during the pandemic. (Additional out) Perfect for that person in your life looking to get kicked out of their gym.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, a new problem for Peloton owners  

Peloton owners are being warned about hackers. In a report released today cybersecurity company McAfee discovered a vulnerability that allows hackers to access Peloton’s bike screen and potentially spy on riders using its camera and microphone. The threat mostly effects bikes used in public spaces, like hotels and gyms, because the hacker needs to physically access the screen using a USB drive. Proving once again that creepers will always find a way to be creepy. (Additional Out) So at least they can’t hack into the one I bought for my house that I’ve used once.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, who Biden sought advice from ahead of his Putin meeting today  

Biden has sought advice from Russia experts, political advisers, national security aides and fellow world leaders ahead of his Putin meeting today. The President’s much-anticipated meeting with Vladimir Putin will likely cover recent ransomware attacks, climate change, nuclear weapons, human rights and the US diplomatic presence in Russia. Plus, I’m guessing, a pushup contest or two. (Additional Out) And I’m sure he’ll throw in a few ‘Come on man’s’ for good measure.

Girl Scouts have millions of boxes of unsold cookies due to the pandemic. According to the organization the Girl Scouts of the USA have 15 million boxes of unsold cookies in surplus this year. Typically, Girl Scouts sell just under 200 million boxes of cookies per season. Most of which, I assume, are sold by parents pressuring their co-workers. (Additional out) Lucky for them, my diet doesn’t start until next month.

Kevin Durant once again showed why he’s one of the best in the NBA. On the back of two straight losses, with his fellow stars Kyrie Irving and James Harden out with injuries, Durant scored 49 points, grabbed 17 boards and dished out 10 assists. His triple double led the Brooklyn Nets to a 114 to 108 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets now lead the series 3 to 2. Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals is tomorrow night. Maybe he didn’t need a super team after all. (Additional out) I’m thinking maybe they ought to guard him this time.

Jersey Devil, the world’s tallest single-rail rollercoaster, just opened at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. The 130-foot drop reaches speeds of almost 60 miles per hour. The park says it’s the ‘world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster’ with 3,000 feet of track and towering 13 stories high. That’s a hard pass for me, I wait at least a year after any ride is built to make sure some engineer didn’t forget to carry a one.

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, this new asteroid spotting telescope is one step closer to reality  

The NEO Surveyor telescope that could spot potentially hazardous asteroids heading to Earth has been approved by NASA. The 20-foot-long infrared Near-Earth-Object Surveyor would bolster planetary defense by helping astronomers find asteroids and comets that come within 30 miles of Earth’s orbit, rapidly accelerating NASA’s ability to discover those that would pose a threat. However, our best plan on what to do next is still, ‘Uh, I don’t know, shoot a nuke at it’. (Additional Out) I think it’s cute that they still think it’s an asteroid that will take us out.

Chrissy Teigen says ‘I’m a troll and I’m so sorry’ in a lengthy Medium piece about her ‘VERY humbling few weeks.’ Last month Courtney Stodden, who at 16 married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison, went public with Teigen privately messaging her to kill herself years ago on social media. Teigen wrote, ‘I have to stop and wonder. How could I have done that?’ Funny how people only see the light once they’ve been caught. (Additional out) I’m assuming because you’re an entitled celebrity who never faced any consequences until now.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, the best state to live in according to a new survey  

New Jersey is America’s best state to live in according to WalletHub’s annual survey. The survey considers 52 metrics to determine the quality of life, education and health scores for each state. Massachusetts came in second followed by New York in third. Louisiana, Alaska and New Mexico came in last. Unfortunately, they didn’t look at the most important metric, which state is most likely to be your pretend Zoom background, or Hawaii would’ve won. (Additional out) So congrats New Jersey, Tony Soprano would be proud.

A: Women  

B: Men  

C: Even split between men and women  

Answer: A, women are over twice as likely as men, 67% to 33%, not to take a break during work hours. Personally, I follow the work philosophy from Office Space where I zone out and just stare at my screen for a few hours a day.

5 Things You Need to Know  

1) Jersey Devil, the world’s tallest single-rail rollercoaster, just opened at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. The 130-foot drop reaches speeds of almost 60 miles per hour. The park says it’s the ‘world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster’ with 3,000 feet of track and towering 13 stories high. That’s a hard pass for me, I wait at least a year after any ride is built to make sure some engineer didn’t forget to carry a one.  

2) The NEO Surveyor telescope that could spot potentially hazardous asteroids heading to Earth has been approved by NASA. The 20-foot-long infrared Near-Earth-Object Surveyor would bolster planetary defense by helping astronomers find asteroids and comets that come within 30 miles of Earth’s orbit, rapidly accelerating NASA’s ability to discover those that would pose a threat. I think it’s cute that they still think it’s an asteroid that will take us out.  

3) Chrissy Teigen says ‘I’m a troll and I’m so sorry’ in a lengthy Medium piece about her ‘VERY humbling few weeks.’ Last month Courtney Stodden, who at 16 married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison, went public with Teigen privately messaging her to kill herself years ago on social media. Teigen wrote, ‘I have to stop and wonder. How could I have done that?’ Funny how people only see the light once they’ve been caught.  

4) New Jersey is America’s best state to live in according to WalletHub’s annual survey. The survey considers 52 metrics to determine the quality of life, education and health scores for each state. Massachusetts came in second followed by New York in third. Louisiana, Alaska and New Mexico came in last. So congrats New Jersey, Tony Soprano would be proud.  

5) A new survey by Tork looked at employee work habits in 2021 as many Americans continue to work from home.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, a new variant is taking hold in the US  

The Delta variant, first found in India, currently accounts for 10% of US Covid-19 infections. Plus, that proportion is doubling every two weeks and it may become the dominant strain in the US. The Delta variant is deadlier and more contagious than other strains. Luckily, the vaccines appear to work on it and 64.4% of US adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine. However, it could be a problem for higher unvaccinated populations in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Wyoming. Where they need to follow other states’ lead and offer money, beer or both as vaccine incentives. (Additional Out) Apparently when you supercharge a virus in a lab it mutates quickly.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, this ousted world leader warns ‘We’ll be back soon’  

Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12 years in office have come to an end. Naftali Bennett was sworn in yesterday as Israel’s new prime minister. In a debate ahead of the swearing in Netanyahu denounced the coalition that ousted him from office, calling it a ‘weak’ and ‘dangerous’ government and warning his rivals ‘we’ll be back soon.’ Sounds like someone’s a sore loser. (Additional Out) Something tells me old Bebe Netanyahu will be fine, former Prime Minister looks pretty good on a resume.  

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, a scary sports moment with a happy ending  

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during a Euro 2020 football (soccer) match with Finland over the weekend. For several scary moments he received chest compressions on the field as a live TV audience watched the scene unfold. Thankfully, first responders were able to restart Eriksen’s heart and he’s now in stable condition. I’m glad he’s ok, but if there was ever a time to cut a live feed, that was it. (Additional out) Once again proving my long held theory that hearts are the most over-rated, least cool organ in our bodies.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, a man was swallowed whole by one of these animals and lived  

A lobster diver in Provincetown, Massachusetts was swallowed whole by a humpback whale and survived. 56-year-old Michael Packard said he felt a huge shove and then everything was completely black. It quickly dawned on him that he was inside a whale. About 40 seconds later the whale surfaced and Packard started throwing his head side to side until it spit him out. Being swallowed by a whale is also known as being Moby Dicked. (Additional out) Lucky for him he apparently tasted terrible.

A: The World Series  

B: The Kentucky Derby  

C: America’s Cup  

Answer: B, America’s Cup began in 1851, however, it isn’t always held in the US, making the Kentucky Derby that began in 1875 the oldest continuously run sporting event in America. Another useless fun fact to bore people with at dinner parties.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, Biden and this foreign leader strike up a bromance  

Biden and Boris appear to be hitting it off. President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson signed a new version of the Atlantic Charter, a pact first drafted by FDR and Churchhill. Today the two are joining other world leaders for the G7 summit in England with a call for a wartime effort against Covid-19. Biden framed the moment as one just as momentous as the years during and after World War II. Minus the whole nuking two cities part. (Additional Out) Adding, when things were all aces daddy-o.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, the mystery of what turned people’s feet black in the sand on beaches in Maine has been solved  

Millions of dead bugs are what made black stains on the feet of beachgoers in Maine. After geologists and oceanographers studied samples under a microscope they determined that the black substance that had settled near the shoreline at multiple beaches in Maine was just a bunch of dead bugs. Which explains Maine’s new slogan ‘Come for the Lobster, stay for the bug beaches.’ (Additional Out) Which sign of the apocalypse is this, 6 or 7?  

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, when a Friend’s fan cruise will set sail  

A ‘Friends’ fan cruise will set sail in 2022. ‘The One When They Went on a Cruise’ is a 7 day fan cruise for the lovers of the 90s sitcom that departs in May of 2022 from Fort Lauderdale and makes stops in Key West, Cozumel and George Town. Come along and party like Matthew Perry while listening to Smelly Cat and avoiding ugly naked guy. (Additional out) Good news for people who didn’t get enough of the show from the reunion and the countless daily reruns.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, critics are shredding this new Mark Wahlberg movie  

Mark Wahlberg’s new action movie Infinite is getting absolutely torched by critics. The Matrix-esque knock-off was released yesterday on Paramount Plus. Roger Ebert called it ‘the worst’ of director Antoine Fuqua’s career. It currently has a 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I’d have to agree, but it’s still not The Happening or Planet of the Apes bad. (Additional out) Hey, they can’t all be Boogie Nights or The Departed, you make enough movies some of them are gonna stink.

Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, how much of a ransom a major meat processor paid to hackers  

The world’s biggest meat processor paid 11 million in ransom to hackers. The Brazilian based JBS paid the hefty ransom in bitcoin after a ransomware attack that likely came from Russia shut down their operations across the world. The cyberattack happened despite JBS spending more than $200 million per year on IT and employing more than 850 tech specialists. I’m assuming all of which are updating their resumes. (Additional Out) That’s it Russia, you’ve officially gone too far when you start effecting the price of my cheeseburger.  

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, Biden revokes a Trump era order targeting these social platforms 

President Biden revoked Trump’s executive orders targeting TikTok and WeChat and issued a fresh order. The new order issued yesterday aims at protecting American’s personal data on apps linked to foreign adversaries, including China, and orders the Commerce Department to develop criteria for assessing national security risks associated with these apps. I’m just impressed that at 78, Biden even knows what TikTok is. (Additional Out) So despite the fact that they pronounce it differently, Biden shares Trumps concerns on China.  

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, how much Mayweather and Paul made off last weekend’s fight  

Floyd Mayweather likely made $35 million, while Logan Paul made $5 million, off of pay per view sales and guarantees for their fight last weekend. In total they sold at least one million $50 pay per views on Showtime and Fanmio, grossing $50 mil. Mayweather and Paul’s cut of those views and their guarantees made for the hefty payday. Plus, according to Mayweather he made an extra $30 million from sponsorships leading up to the fight. Not bad for putting on one of the worst boxing matches I’ve ever seen. (Additional out) So unfortunately, when that kind of money is being made, there’s always a sequel.  

Tease: In _____ minutes, this iconic 1996 comedy is getting a sequel  

The Farrely brothers are making a Kingpin sequel. Nearly 25 years after the original hit theaters, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are developing a follow-up to the classic bowling comedy. Whether Harrelson, Quaid, Angel or Murray will return for the follow up remains to be seen. I certainly hope so, you gotta have Munson and McCraken. (Additional out) Hopefully it’s better than their Dumb and Dumber sequels.

That’s according to a bombshell report from ProPublica, who obtained the tax returns of the wealthiest people in the country from an anonymous source.

Taylor took to social media to share the big news saying ‘embrace and love yourself for who and what you are.’ For those of you too young to remember, Maxim is one of what we used to call magazines.
