Batman Caught Covid-19

Robert Pattinson  has tested positive for coronavirus, prompting The Batman to suspend filming in the United Kingdom just days after it went back into production.

The film, starring Pattinson as Batman, was about 7 weeks into filming when they had to turn off the cameras in March due to the pandemic. The movie has approximately 3 months of material left to shoot and hopes to be done filming by the end of the year. Since production was put on hold, Warner Bros. pushed back its theatrical release and now plans to unveil the movie on October 1st of 2021.

Michael O’Keefe, AKA Danny Noonan In ‘Caddyshack,’ Wants To Caddie At The U.S. Open

While I wouldn’t be hitting any shots at Winged Foot Open, I do pledge to give advice — both solicited and unsolicited — to the golfer who gives me the chance to loop for him.

Full disclosure: I wasn’t the best caddie in my time. That distinction goes to a guy named “Tasty,” who earned his name from his penchant for wine, plus his wicked sense of humor. When the legendary caddiemaster, Gene Hayden, would notice that Tasty had been drinking, the caddie would be sent “down the hill.”
