Everything costs a bit more these days and Little Caesars is not immune. In fact, their “Hot-N-Ready Pizza” which cost $ 5 also costs a little more. The “new and improved” version of this popular pizza is now $ 5.55. And before you get upset, know that this is the first price increase in 25 years and it comes with 33% more pepperoni.

United Van Lines has compiled a list of the states most people move to… and those they leave.

Learn more about Madden… It was common knowledge that Madden couldn’t stand flying, which is why he took that bus for every game he aired during his career. On that bus, there was a permanent rule that wasn’t negotiable… no one was allowed to take a shit in the bathroom. According to former NFL player and executive Matt Millen, only three people have ever dared to break Madden’s “poo rule”. They were: Millen, producer Fox Richie zyontz, and hockey legend Wayne gretzky. Millen says that, for some reason, Gretzky still has “a pass.”

Today is National Spaghetti Day AND National Fun Facts Day. So here are some spaghetti trivia: A single strand of spaghetti is called a “spaghetto”. McDonald’s used to offer “McSpaghetti” on their menu. And only 3% of Americans never eat spaghetti.

YES or NO: Is spaghetti the MOST popular Italian dish in the United States? According to a recent poll. . .

NO, this is the THIRD. Garlic bread is the first. Lasagna is second. Then spaghetti, macaroni and cheese and ravioli.

Two random facts on Tuesday:

  1. that of Dr Seuss his real name is Theodor Geisel. He coined the pseudonym “Seuss” when he was caught drinking in college and banned from extracurricular activities. . . but I wanted to continue writing for the humorous journal.
  2. Elvis’s the best-selling album of all time was “Elvis Christmas Album”. It is also the best-selling Christmas album. . . globally. It has sold over 10 million copies.

LeBron James says he wants to see his son in the NBA

Quote: “I want him to reach the NBA. I’m not even going to lie. I want to be in the field with him. I think it would be an amazing time. . . he might get closer, but we’ll see.

Bronny is a high school student and already considered a top prospect. He will graduate in 2023, and NBA rules state that a season must pass after a prospect graduates before they can make the draft. This would make Bronny eligible in 2024.

LeBron Sr. is 37 years old and is in his 19th season in the NBA. . . but he’s still playing at a level high enough to last at least a few more seasons. If all of this happens, he and Bronny could either be the first father-son teammates, or the first father-son opponents, in NBA history.
