Tom Cruise Is Definitely Taking COVID Seriously
An audio recording of Tom Cruise going on a COVID related rant during the filming of Mission Impossible 7 has surfaced this week and…well…it’s about what you would expect. The Sun reports that fifty staff and crew at the Warner Bros. studio in Leavesden, Herts stood by and watched as the actor proceeded to yell at the team because two members stood only a couple feet apart around a computer. Back in October, Cruise met with the film’s director, Christopher McQuarrie regarding safety measures after 12 people on set in Italy tested positive. So needless to say he is taking this very seriously.
I get that he cares, but damn. Check out the rant below:
“If we shut down it’s going to cost people their f***ing jobs, their homes, their family, that’s what’s happening…I care about you guys, but if you’re not going to help me, you’re gone.”

MLB Finally Recognizes the Negro League as Part of the Major League
In what MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred calls a “long overdue recognition,” Major League Baseball has finally reclassified the Negro League into major league status. The Negro League was a group of seven baseball leagues that started to disband in 1947 after Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, making him the first black major league baseball player. By “correcting a longtime oversight in the game’s history,” the stats of the players from these leagues, from 1920-1948, will now be included in MLB records.
