The Daily Dose: 2/10/22

-John Turner

Happy Thursday folks. So Moonfall is a decent movie. It has absolutely terrible reviews, but if you like science fiction, you’ll probably enjoy it. NASA, government cover ups, the end of the world, what’s really on the moon, only one man can save us now, you know, that kinda thing. I thinkI’ll give “All of us are dead” a try next, because… zombies. Pretty convenient timing of Snoop Dogg buying Death Row Records considering him, Dr. Dre, and company will be playing the halftime on Sunday. Don’t you think? Speaking of the Super Bowl, we’ve decided to make Pho and Cincinnati chili. They’re the two most popular dishes in both cities. I may go ahead and start the broth today, because evidently it’s a two day process. This is my first crack at it so I’m probably going to screw it all up. Speaking crack… they’re really going to give out free crack pipes aren’t they? Weird flex bro, but it makes complete sense in this country after experiencing what the last two years have shown us.

Looks like James Harden is head to Philadelphia. The Nets will get Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first round picks. Seems like a lot for a 32 year old, but what do I know. Mike Florio is evidently fake news… again. For the life of me I can’t figure out how him and Adam Schefter seem to have the inside scoop on the most powerful league in the world, and yet are among the most obnoxious at covering it. US Olympic men’s hockey obliterated hometown China 8-0. I believe they’ll get Canada Saturday.
