Friends Star Matthew Perry Passes Away
Sad news over the weekend. Actor Matthew Perry passed away. Such sad news. He’s obviously best known for his role as Chandler on the show, “Friends”. I guess he had played in some pickleball earlier in the day, came home, sent his assistant on some errands, and when the assistant returned, found him in the hot tub deceased. He has said that he did have a drug problem in the past, but they said they didn’t find anything like that at the scene so, we’ll have to see what the autopsy ends up saying about his passing. It’s unfortunate for a lot of fans out there. That show was such a favorite for so many people. Very sad. Here’s some “Best of” Chandler to enjoy… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9RRe4ZsSGw
Flavor Flav Sings National Anthem
You are never going to guess who the Milwaukee Bucks got to sing the National Anthem? Flavor Flav! He said this is a long-time bucket list item for him and he said, “I can’t live my life worried about what people might say about me. I don’t want that to stop me from trying new things and doing things I want to do. Some people might not be like that, but a sure failure is you stop trying.” Good for him. And I think we’ve heard worse before. Hear/see it for yourself at this link… https://x.com/Phil_Lewis_/status/1718780761870864629?s=20
