    ST. LOUIS — An amusing group chat has emerged from the frenetic San Francisco-Seattle roster-go-round. Donovan Walton, Kevin Padlo and Mike Ford have in some way or another shuffled between the Mariners and the Giants over the past two weeks. To keep in touch — and keep track — the trio of players started texting each other. The current status report: Walton, the latest trade target, joined the Giants in St. Louis on a taxi-squad basis (not part of the active roster). Padlo, who came over in exchange for cash, is a regular at Triple-A Sacramento. And Ford, who joked about being the designated “COVID replacement player,” was shipped back to Seattle to add Walton to the 40-man roster. “Crazy,” said Walton, 28, who has a career .196/.260/.315 batting line in 102 MLB plate appearances. “We were cracking jokes about it. It was good to see Padlo yesterday. He said nothing but great things, so I’m excited to be here.” Walton got to say hi to Padlo, but that’s about all he had time for. He arrived in St. Louis...
    America's top infectious-disease expert hinted that he might retire soon due to falling COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, suggesting the pandemic might be over.  Dr Anthony Fauci, 81, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and adviser to President Joe Biden, told ABC's Start Here podcast that he is considering retiring as COVID cases drop and restrictions have been lifted across the country.  'I have said that I would stay in what I'm doing until we get out of the pandemic phase and I think we might be there already if we can stay this,' Fauci said.  'I don't have any plans right now to go anywhere, but you never know. I can't stay at this job forever.'   Fauci has served as public health expert for more than 50 years and has advised every American president since Ronald Reagan, becoming the nation's top COVID expert while drawing criticism over the nation's handling of the pandemic.   The hints of retirement came as he warned that easing restrictions, the waning protection from vaccines and the rise of the BA.2 subvariant in the...
    Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay was apparently, at one point in his life, one of the best athletes in the state of Georgia. Calvin Johnson is one of the greatest athletes the NFL has ever seen. A dynamic and physically dominant receiver, he once routinely embarrassed entire defenses while he was with the Detroit Lions alongside current Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. However, Stafford is now working with an athlete that actually went out and won an award over Johnson. As it turns out, Sean McVay, the current Rams head coach, was named the 2003 Georgia High School Player of the Year over Johnson, which is absolutely absurd to think about. This is WILD ???? #SCFacts pic.twitter.com/MiUZ6BMUBu — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) February 7, 2022 Watch: Rich Eisen asks Calvin Johnson about Sean McVay and Roman Reigns During a segment on his show, Rich Eisen actually asked Johnson about McVay beating him out for the award. Apparently, Johnson had no clue this even happened up until recently. It was all news to him. After TJ & Brockman supplied him...
    Yes, little one, your life DOES matter. Friday was a horrible day for those of us who abhor the worst of this nation’s original values, norms, and laws. You know the ones—the ones that enable white men to rule over women and people of color with an iron fist, the ones that protect the wealth of the few at the expense of the masses, the ones that treat Christianity as the national religion, and the ones that keep members of the LGBTQ+ communities closeted.  Make no mistake: While that Kenosha, Wisconsin jury declared that Kyle Rittenhouse, now 18, was not guilty of murdering Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, and other crimes in August 2020, their verdicts do not make that soulless, gun-toting disaster innocent. He’s just the latest killer to walk free, with a lot of help from Judge Bruce Schroeder.  In a nation where horrific violence is increasingly acceptable to one part of the country—most visibly represented by white male Christian supremacists, and the white women who will do anything to remain adjacent to their desperate, angry, and declining power—sometimes we who know the right wing is...
    SAN FRANCISCO — His performance suggests he still has plenty left to offer and his stat line indicates he’s still one of the best catchers in baseball, but Buster Posey doesn’t plan to continue building his legacy. The longtime Giants catcher and anchor of three World Series championship clubs announced he will retire from baseball on Thursday at Oracle Park. “It’s such a unique opportunity to publicly thank so many people that helped me get here, help me stay here and help me fulfill a lifelong dream playing Major League Baseball,” Posey said at the beginning of a 15-minute speech in which he thanked his wife Kristen, his four children and various members of the organization. Posey was joined at the podium by Giants chairman Greg Johnson, CEO Larry Baer and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, who jokingly asked: “I don’t know if this is the right time for it, but is this a definite, for sure thing?” Posey, 34, is stepping away following the best regular season in franchise history and one of the...
    Sweeping through the doorway at Vogue's sleek Manhattan offices, Anna Wintour surveys the room with a practised, critical eye. There is a moment's deliberate pause, a flash of obvious distaste. 'Why,' she snaps, 'are there so many white people in the room?' It could so easily be parody. After all, the legendary 71-year-old Vogue editor – with her signature sleek bob and sunglasses – has many times found herself the subject of ruthless satire, most notably in the film, The Devil Wears Prada.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady has been playing forever. As a result, football fans seemingly get bombarded every 15 minutes with a new accomplishment or statistic or feat that nobody’s ever done in history. It’s all impressive, but it can be a bit much. Yet every now and then, a Tom Brady statistic comes across your eyes and stops you in your tracks. This is one of those stats. During the Buccaneers’ rout of the Bears on Sunday, Brady hit a bit of a rough patch in the second quarter. With the Bucs leading 21-0, Brady threw three straight incompletions. The Bucs punted, but they got the ball back three plays later on a strip sack of Justin Fields. With the ball at the Bears’ 25-yard line, Brady was looking to pour it on. But once again, he threw three straight incompletions. (The first one was a big miss, too.) The Bucs settled for a field goal, and when the CBS broadcast returned from commercials, the screen displayed a downright shocking bit of information: With six...
    In 2021, perhaps for the first time in decades, COVID-19 has ushered in a shift in the supply and demand equation that has benefited workers. In April, a higher percentage of nongovernment employees left their jobs than at any point since the Labor Department began measuring that statistic at the turn of the century. They’re doing so because they have choices to a degree they haven’t for a long time. Wages are also climbing, in particular for those at the bottom of the pay scale. “What’s happening right now is not about the wages of college grads going up—it’s about the wages of lifeguards at my pool,” explained Betsey Stevenson, who served as the Labor Department’s chief economist before moving on to the University of Michigan. “Undergirding that is the sense that workers at the very bottom have options to work for a better job,” Dr. Stevenson added. “What employers are used to paying won’t really cut it.” No offense to practitioners like Stevenson, but economics has long been burdened with the moniker “the dismal science.” The term derives...
    The past week has seen the Republican Party maneuver to consider potential replacements for Rep. Liz Cheney in her leadership role, with Rep. Elise Stefanik emerging as the strongest contender. It also saw former President Donald Trump's ban on Facebook upheld and Caitlyn Jenner's first interview as a prospective gubernatorial candidate in California and finished with underwhelming jobs numbers for President Joe Biden. Here are some of the best quotes of the week. "The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!" — Former President Donald Trump, via tweemail, renewing his monthslong unfounded claims about election fraud. “That tale from the border didn't just border on B.S. This was USDA grade-A bulls--- . … But the damage was done, pumped out over the airwaves at the bulls--- factory also known as Fox News." — CNN anchor and former Trump provocateur Jim Acosta on Fox News “I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message.” — House Minority Leader Kevin...
    Mike Trout had a rare bad night at the plate against the Kansas City Royals who did something unheard of against the best player in baseball. Mike Trout is off to another amazing start and his Los Angeles Angels actually have a winning record. That is one rare feat right there, but Trout had a weird night Tuesday in Kansas City. He did record one hit, but also had four strikeouts for the ‘ole golden sombrero. For those unaware, that is the lovely term given on a four-strikeout night. There is a whole Twitter account dedicated to tracking the ugly feat and it is not as rare as it may seem. However, it is rare for Trout. One may think a power hitter like him would have many of these tough nights. It turns out that is not the case at all. In 1,263 MLB games, Trout has struck out four times in just six of those games with the last one coming in September of 2017. That’s .0048 percent of games. Mike Trout has played 1,263 MLB games. Tonight...
    Professor Brian Cox left This Morning viewers scratching their heads today after making a bizarre claim that humans 'might be holograms'.  The British physicist, 53, appeared on the programme to promote his new live tour Horizons: A 2021 Space Odyssey, which will explore profound questions such as how the universe began. While discussing the role of black holes in the evolution of the universe, Brian claimed the universe 'might not be at all the way we perceive it to be' and suggested we could all be holograms - but failed to elaborate before host Ruth Langsford moved the conversation on.  Viewers were unsurprisingly confused by the theory, with one calling the moment the 'best thing to happen' on the show so far while another joked that someone should come and 'turn them off'.  Professor Brian Cox left This Morning viewers scratching their heads today after making the surprising claim that we 'might all be holograms' The British physicist, 53, said the 'universe might not be at all the way we perceive it to be' - but gave no other explanation...
    No, not desperation. More like: urgency. That is how this next challenge awaiting Aaron Rodgers must be viewed. This might not be the last opportunity to get to his second Super Bowl. But it could be. Rodgers is 37 years old, and his 16th year in the NFL — his 13th as the Packers’ starting quarterback — was one of his very best. An all-time season. If he cannot springboard such greatness into taking the next, necessary step, when will he? If Rodgers and the Packers, the No. 1 seed in the NFC, playing at home Sunday afternoon at their frigid Lambeau Field venue, cannot beat the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship, it will be another season of superlatives that ended with no Super Bowl. And that is unacceptable, even though the impediment in the way, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, is the most prolific winner in league history. “No more pressure than usual,” Rodgers said. “I think a lot of times the storylines, pressure and those kinds of comments are good stuff for you guys to write about, but I...
    Getty Jenni Farley, Clayton Carpinello, Nicole Polizzi, Lauren Sorrentino, Amy Paffrath, Angela Pivarnick, and Deena Nicole Buckner of the Jersey Shore cast attend the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards at Prudential Center on August 26, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey. Jersey Shore fans are more convinced than ever that Angelina Pivarnick and her husband Chris Larangeira have broken up. The couple, who tied the knot in a lavish November 2019 wedding, have been unusual displaying social media behavior that has fans thinking they’ve split after just one year of marriage. Angelina kicked off the New Year by posting, then deleting,  a fake pregnancy announcement, and things only got weirder from there. So what’s the deal?

    TSA weighs barring hundreds from flights, steps up security before inauguration Trump trial pending, McConnell calls it vote of conscience This incredible stat might be a good sign for Urban Meyers NFL coaching career Plenty of very successful college coaches have jumped to the NFL and struggled to replicate their previous success. There are definitely some people who believe Urban Meyer will be one of them. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Meyer accepted the Jacksonville Jaguars head-coaching job on Thursday, setting him up for his first jump to professional football. There’s no way of knowing how successful Meyer will be at this level, but there’s one stat that could bode well: the number of Meyer-coached players who are still playing in the NFL. #Jaguars coach Urban Meyer is new to the NFL, but not new to players in the NFL. Per @NFLResearch, 57 players — basically an entire active roster — played a game under Urban Meyer in college and played in an NFL game in 2020. That’s a lot. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 16, 2021 That...
    According to a new report, Monday Night Raw superstar Ricochet — whose booking has been the subject of criticism for quite some time — might soon be on his way out of WWE. Citing comments made by Bryan Alvarez on Tuesday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live, WhatCulture wrote that the belief backstage is that Ricochet hasn’t re-signed with WWE. This new development comes close to three years after the high-flying wrestler — together with NXT star Candice LeRae and Erik and Ivar of The Viking Raiders — signed three-year contracts with the promotion in January 2018. With that in mind, the publication added that there’s a chance Ricochet will be leaving the promotion later this month, assuming he won’t ink a new deal before the current one expires. As further pointed out, Ricochet has been seen by many as one of the “most misused” wrestlers in WWE. Currently, he is in the middle of a feud with Mustafa Ali and the rest of RETRIBUTION, though WhatCulture noted that their rivalry has largely gone in favor of the heel faction since...
    (CNN)You can buy most Hot Wheels cars for about a dollar at Target, Wal-Mart or pretty much any local drugstore. But for Bruce Pascal, a nearly lifelong obsession with the tiny cars has turned into a collection of mind-boggling value.Pascal, a Washington DC-area commercial real estate executive, is the owner of what is believed to be the most valuable Hot Wheels car in the world: a 1969 version of the "Beach Bomb" Volkswagen bus estimated to be worth as much as $150,000.Collectibles experts say the appraisal of the tiny car is entirely believable based on its extreme rarity and its nearly perfect condition."When it comes to any field of collecting, there's always that pinnacle 'Holy Grail' item where it's just that the supply that's out there can no way meet the demand and that causes the price to go through the roof," said Travis Landry, an appraiser with Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers of Rhode Island.Although he hasn't inspected the car himself, Landry said that Pascal's toy is easily worth $100,000 but probably more, especially as values for all sorts of...
    The most memorable TV character deaths Fixer-uppers around America begging to be pretty again Hot Takes We Might Actually Believe: James Harden will be a Philadelphia 76er this season The 2020-21 NBA season is almost upon us, but Hot Take SZN is here, and at the end of another eventful offseason we will see how close to the sun we can fly and still stand the swelter of these viewpoints. © Provided by Yahoo! Sports James Harden’s unhappiness with the Houston Rockets is the worst-kept secret in the NBA. Every day, we are treated to some mundane update that comes back to this: The one-time MVP wants out of Houston, and the Rockets are unwilling to trade him for pennies on the dollar. The swap of Russell Westbrook for John Wall, the signing of Christian Wood, none of it has changed Harden’s mind. And none of it was done with the sole purpose of convincing him to stay. Harden’s list of preferred destinations may expand or contract, but one way or another, he will be dealt by the trade...
    The Pokémon Company International and The Wand Company are teaming up to release premium replicas of the classic Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, and Premier Ball. These $99.99 die-cast metal balls come with proximity-sensing tech that causes its button to light up and change color when pressed. You might be thinking that the point of a poké ball, any poké ball, would be to be thrown, as decades of games and cartoons have taught — especially for one that’s motion activated — but not this ball, buddy! This is not a toy. A replica weights in at 10.5oz, which, according to the very first result on Google, is twice the weight of a baseball and 4.5oz heavier than a cue ball. It is distressingly described as having “real heft” and being “reassuringly solid.” And in case anyone still has the urge to chuck one at their least favorite friend, The Wand Company has an ominous warning: “This Poké Ball must never be thrown.” Did you think this was a promo picture? No, it is a threat. ...
    WITH Covid rules likely, families are facing a very different Christmas this year. But for many, this festive season is extra important. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 9Sir Bobby Charlton recently revealed he has been diagnosed with dementiaCredit: PA:Empics Sport Michael O’Reilly, 73, from Solihull, West Mids, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in September. Now he may not get to see his family over the festive season. A week after it emerged that footie legend Sir Bobby Charlton has dementia, Michael and his daughter, writer Clare O’Reilly, 41, from Plymouth, reveal how his diagnosis has made this Christmas more important than ever. Clare says... I HAVE no memory whatsoever of my first Christmas with my dad, Mick, now 73. Yet he can remember everything about it. What I got, who we spent it with, what I wore, how I loved the wrapping paper more than the teddy bear family he and Mum had picked out for me, my obsession with the lower-hanging baubles on the tree. 9Clare and Mick on one of...
    For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter. The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner is usually one of the worst nights in DC, a chance for the city’s elite to hobnob and congratulate each other while pretending that politicians can successfully land a joke. It’s one of the few norms of the city that Donald Trump has thankfully broken. But back in 2011, when he still had some of his first-term groove and on the same night that he ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Barack Obama managed to nail some actual zingers.  Sadly, though, those jokes have been cringeworthy to watch for the past few years since the humiliation of Obama’s takedown might have been the catalyst the imbecile-in-chief needed to start his future presidential campaign. But I hope someday soon, I might be able to just enjoy this video again without fretting over the current state of the world, not having to think about the all-too-real predictions of how a President Trump would debase the White...
