Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has invited North Korea's foreign minister to meet with him in New York next week to discuss ending the North's nuclear weapons program by January of 2021.  Pompeo's invitation Wednesday followed Pyongyang's pledge to take down its key missile facilities and suggest it would close its nuclear complex at Yongbyon in exchange for unspecified actions by the U.S.  

Kids of the 90's are rejoycing, Space Jam is coming back! LeBron James is teaming up with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler on the new Space Jam sequel.  An official announcement came yesterday from James' company, SpringHill Entertainment.  James has long been rumored to star in the follow-up to the 1996 live-action-cartoon movie starring Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes characters.  A tentative release date is scheduled for next year. 

We were so excited about the Rockies. Emphasis on were. The Rockies lost their third-straight game to the Dodgers last night, dropping them two-and-a-half games back of L.A. in the National League West.  Colorado is also one-and-a-half games back of the final wild card spot in the National League.  The Rockies have ten games left in the season and start a three-game series in Arizona tomorrow.
