The Saga of Tom Brady’s Jersey.



In the early hours of Monday, just before James Comey, the director of the F.B.I., confirmed the existence of one of the agency’s investigations – the one looking into possible connections between Russia and the Trump campaign and Russia — the news was released about the findings of another. The F.B.I. has assisted in locating the football jersey of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the month-long Super Bowl in Houston that went missing after the game. Its value was approximately half-million dollars. In a press release issued by the N.F.L., the jersey was “been found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media.” Houston’s police chief Art Acevedo, whose department was working together with the F.B.I. as well as other law enforcement agencies on the investigation, said the jersey was located in Mexico and that the credentialed media person that was in question was quickly determined to be Mauricio Ortega, who up until the end of last week, been the director of Mexican paper La Prensa. The newspaper reported that he was caught in a video exiting the Patriots in the locker room, with the Brady jersey concealed beneath his shirt. In a twist, Ortega was confronted by police and handed over a variety of things apart from the jersey and a helmet that was likely worn by Broncos linebacker Von Miller in last year’s Super Bowl and the jersey Brady donned during his last Super Bowl before that.

The thief and subsequent recovery of Brady’s uniform was a story of Trumpian fanfiction. Brady, an all-American superhero and longtime Trump ally, had been targeted by a media executive from Mexico. Acevedo announced returning the shirt to the United States as a minor act of patriotic pride. “You don’t come to Texas and embarrass us in our home turf,” Acevedo spoke at a press event.

Robert Kraft, the Patriots owner, had compared the theft of his jersey with the theft of a work of artwork. However, in his way, Brady generally made light of the whole incident. In February, it was believed to be the most lucrative action he’s ever taken outside of a football field. Brady posted a picture on Instagram of what he described as a suspect board, a homemade version of one seen in television crime procedurals. Brady’s list of suspects included sharks in the movie “Jaws,” Lady Gaga as well as his teammate Julian Edelman,

The investigation was concluded; however, it could have been at the forefront of his mind when Comey appeared in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday. At one point during the hearing, Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah was able to ask Comey to evaluate whether Russia’s interference in the presidential election was driven more by a desire to aid Donald Trump than to undermine Hillary Clinton. “To put it in a homely metaphor, I hate the New England Patriots,” Comey responded. “And regardless of the team plays, I’d prefer to see them lose. That’s why I’m at while rooting for Patriots Patriots and hoping that their opponent can beat their team.” (Comey is a fact, he’s rooting in Giants. Giants.) In the Capitol, Justice Neil Gorsuch was settling in to begin the Supreme Court confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, backed by a support letter from fellow Coloradoan John Elway, the former Broncos quarterback and general manager of the team, handwritten on stationery and with the team’s logo on the top. The day of political debate ended in Kentucky and saw Donald Trump holding another of the so-called rally rallies for his campaign, only two months in his second term. In the crowd, while rousing people, Trump needled the former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is now a free agent following the season in which he was the subject of headlines for taking a knee during the National Anthem in protest. “There was a report today and it was reported N.F.L. owners aren’t willing to take him since they don’t want to be hit with a negative Tweet by Donald Trump,” he declared. It’s only March. However, the football season, just like the season for elections, never stops.

Tom Cruise’s Tropic Thunder” Spin-Off Has a Script.



Now that the script has been written for the ‘Tropic Thunder” spinoff film starring Tom Cruise’s Les Grossman character, when will it be made, and will Cruise still be interested in it?

Tom Cruise was no longer famous for his roles in blockbuster films. Instead, he was criticized for his unpredictable behaviour and controversial views on hot-button subjects. Cruise devised a career strategy to help him return to the good graces of the moviegoers, despite concerns about his real life.

One part of the plan was to play a small but memorable role in Ben Stiller’s comedy/action Tropic Thunder. Stiller initially approached the cruise to play his agent, but he wanted to know if the filmmakers would be open to adding a studio head character to the story.

Stiller agreed, and together they created Les Grossman, a Harvey Weinstein-Esque hothead who took over nearly every scene he was in. Cruise revived the character for last year’s MTV Movie Awards. After another show-stealing performance, talk about a Les Grossman sequel movie began to heat up. However, there hasn’t been any news about the project since it seems that Paramount is still working on it.

MTV met Bill Hader, SNL’s host at the Comedy Awards and learned that Hader’s friend Michael Bacall had written the script. Bacall, an actor/writer, previously wrote Scott Pilgrim against the World. He is currently working on the Fright Night remake.

Hader refused to reveal details about the film’s plot but insisted that it was “gonna be great.” He explained that he knew the plot’s essential elements, but he and Bacall only discussed particular scenes while they were being written. Although Hader doesn’t know when Les Grossman will be back on the big screen, this shows there is more to the project than idle chatter.

A Les Grossman spinoff movie was not something that I was excited about. His scenes in Tropic Thunder were funny, and I believe the character is excellent as a supporting role – but I don’t think I have the time to spend 90 minutes with him. The film will be much more than a string of vulgarities and hip-hop dance moves, but I am sure it would. Grossman would have to be given at least one or two redeeming characteristics before they could build a story around him.

Many others have pointed out that the real issue is whether Tom Cruise still needs the character. Although his career isn’t in the best shape, he’s definitely in a better place than four years ago. He is working on Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol and recently joined Adam Shankman’s Rock of Ages cast. He has expressed an interest in appearing in Oblivion, the sci-fi film by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy).

Cruise has plenty of options and variety in his career. I don’t think a Tropic Thunder spinoff will likely be short. However, the good news for Les Grossman fans is that the project sounds ready to go if he still wants it.

Tom Cruise is open to Reprising His Tropic Thunder Role.



Over the years, Tom Cruise has been seen in various roles, including Top Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible 2. He recently suggested that if he were to revive another character from his filmography, Les Grossman could be back from Tropic Thunder. Although the surface is a parody of movie executives, it’s unlikely that he would be the main focus of a feature film. However, he has previously appeared in the role on MTV, and it seems like he would not mind playing the part for the right opportunity. Maverick is the next Top Gun movie.

“I don’t know. Cruise spoke out about other roles he would like to reprise at Top Gun: Maverick’s premiere. “I don’t know what I am doing at the moment. I’m enjoying the night, but I must finish Mission: Impossible 2nd. I am enjoying this evening, and I will put away all my Mission stuff for a moment to breathe tonight.

The coronavirus pandemic delayed Maverick. Production on Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One also suffered setbacks. However, the show wrapped up last fall. Although those projects may be over, Maverick started production on Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part Two earlier in the year. Its massive scope and size likely required another long shooting schedule.

Top Gun: Maverick “After more than thirty years of service, Pete ‘Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is back where he belongs. He pushes the limits as a brave test pilot and avoids the rank advancement that would make him unfit for duty. Maverick finds himself training a group of Top Gun pilots for a specialized mission unlike any other. He meets Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), Maverick’s friend and Radar Intercept Officer, Lt. Nick Bradshaw (aka ‘Goose), who calls him ‘Rooster’. Maverick faces an uncertain future, confronts his ghosts and is forced to face his deepest fears. The mission will require the greatest sacrifice of those chosen to fly it.

What is the process behind Grubhub?



What does the food delivery service can offer to restaurants, customers and drivers

Grubhub is a well-known food delivery service that’s been operating since. As per the firm, the service can process more than 745,000 orders per day from over 320,000 restaurant partners. In addition, it has around 32 million users.

However, Grubhub has many moving parts. It isn’t just a company that works with customers but works with restaurants as well as manages local driver fleets to deliver the food.

How does Grubhub work to benefit customers?

Customers are at the centre of the Grubhub business model. Customers utilize a mobile application (iOS and Android) and their Grubhub website to place orders and pay payments.

After using the app or the website to sign up for an account and input the payment details, customers can look up through the menus or look for eateries within the area and then make an order by choosing items and placing them in the cart. After that, they can checkout, select the payment method and monitor the order’s progress until it is delivered. Grubhub typically charges a delivery fee in addition to what the eatery sets.

What is the process? Grubhub functions for restaurants

Naturally, Grubhub is dependent on restaurants. Additionally, it expands the accessibility of restaurants by allowing businesses to provide delivery, even though the restaurant has traditionally offered dining-in services. The partnership also will enable restaurants to use Grubhub to provide a delivery platform instead of hiring and managing their delivery staff.

Restaurants can begin their journey with Grubhub by submitting their application to be accepted on the Grubhub for Restaurants section of the Grubhub website. After acceptance, Grubhub works with restaurants to integrate their menus prices, menus, and other information on the app and the website.

When a client places the order, it shows on the dashboard of the Grubhub app for restaurants. The restaurant then confirms the order and prepares the food items for delivery. The food is delivered as soon as the driver has arrived, and the restaurant’s portion of the process is completed.

To partner with Grubhub, restaurants complete a form on the Grubhub website. Dave Johnson

Grubhub gets a small portion of the restaurant’s earnings to support this workflow, including a processing and marketing fee and a percentage of the total cost for the purchase. Since Grubhub orders cost restaurants more, some restaurants offer additional charges for delivery online than those who dine in.

How does Grubhub work for drivers?

The driving job offered by Grubhub is part of the current “gig market,” meaning you can choose to become a Grubhub driver as your primary source of income or help supplement your other job. Drivers can begin by applying the Grubhub for Drivers section of the Grubhub website. To be a qualified driver, you must, at minimum, have a vehicle (or, in certain areas, bikes are acceptable) as well as a driver’s licence as well as auto insurance (or identification from the state, in the case of a bike) as well as an iPhone.

Drivers receive training through Grubhub and have the option to determine their working hours. When they arrive at their job, the drivers are informed via the app whenever orders are available at a nearby restaurant. The driver accepts the delivery, then goes into the establishment, where they wait for food, if needed and then delivers the food to the customer following the directions to drive on the app. Alongside the base, delivery charge drivers are also eligible to receive tips which customers may add to the payment information in the application.
