Monday Morning Man: Roger Federer!

You expected someone else?

On Roger Federer’s 41st birthday, there is only one man to feature as Morning Man!

He hasn’t played on the pro tennis tour for more than a year due to injury but the 8-time Wimbledon champion has not retired and is expected to play some events in the fall.

I don’t expect Federer to add to his collection of 20 grand slam titles or even his 103 overall tournament victories. What would be so nice for us Fed fans is just to see him on court again with those elegant strokes and his impeccable style. His appearance with other former champions at Wimbledon last month was proof that he remains the biggest star in tennis.

Happy birthday to Fed who, in my mind, is the best star tennis has ever had.

Today we celebrate the late, great TV icon Lucille Ball who was born 111 years ago today

When you come from a big family like I do, there can be all kinds of good times and bad times.

But no matter what was happening, one thing we all could agree upon and settle down for was watching episodes of I Love Lucy.

It’s been that way all my life and it is still that way.

Today marks the 111th anniversary of the birth of series star Lucille Ball, the comedic genius who inhabited Lucy Ricardo, the greatest character in the history of television in my opinion.

Miss Ball got to share her immense talents with the world and even though she died in 1989, we are still enjoying her as much as we ever did.

I also find the first three seasons of her follow-up series, The Lucy Show, quite enjoyable because she was teamed again with the great Vivian Vance.

I’ve included some I Love Lucy and The Lucy Show clips below!

Hannah Einbinder on her relationship with “Hacks” co-star Jean Smart: “The most beautiful friendship”

Love Hacks, love Jean Smart, love, Hannah Einbinder and love their on-screen relationship. It’s just awfully nice to know that off-screen they are just as close.

Says Hannah:“Jean has a really young spirit and I am a very old soul and I think we kind of meet in the middle there…Putting aside the fact that our sense of humors are very meshed and so similar, she’s just such an incredible friend and we’ve just been very vulnerable and open with each other about everything in our lives and within this show. And so, the evolution of our chemistry into the most beautiful friendship has just really been very seamless because we both are just really open people…It’s just been one of the greatest, most rewarding and cherished relationships I’ve had in my life.”

WNBA star and Olympic gold medalist Brittney Griner sentenced to 9 years in Russian jail

What a nightmare. There’s no way Brittney Griner would have been treated this way if she were not a famous American. Here is CNN’s story on this awful situation that has been condemned by President Joe Biden:

(CNN) American women’s basketball star Brittney Griner was convicted of deliberately smuggling drugs into Russia and sentenced to nine years of jail time Thursday in a case that has raised concerns she is being used as a political pawn in Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Judge Anna Sotnikova of the Khimki city court delivered the sentence and fined Griner 1 million rubles, or about $16,400. She said the court took into account Griner’s partial admission of guilt, remorse for the deed, state of health and charitable activities. Prosecutors had asked that she be sentenced to 9.5 years in jail.

Prior to the verdict, Griner apologized to the court and asked for leniency in an emotional speech.

“I never meant to hurt anybody, I never meant to put in jeopardy the Russian population, I never meant to break any laws here,” Griner said. “I made an honest mistake and I hope that in your ruling that it doesn’t end my life here. I know everybody keeps talking about political pawn and politics, but I hope that, that is far from this courtroom.

“I want to say again that I had no intent on breaking any Russian laws. I had no intent. I did not conspire or plan to commit this crime,” she added.
After the sentence, Griner told a CNN producer as she left court, “I love my family.”
