BRITNEY SPEARS: Hi, guys. I'm in my gym right now. I haven't been in here for, like, six months because I burnt my gym down, unfortunately. I had two candles, and, yeah, one thing led to another, and I burned it down.
JARED QUAY: That's one way to spend quarantine. Later we'll see how a few other celebrities are faring. Spoiler alert-- not much better than Britney. But first we're going to play a round of--
Baseball, basketball, hockey are all suspended, but with 7 races scheduled over 11 days, NASCAR is back in May.
- You surprised?
JARED QUAY: No. It's just driving. You ain't got no passengers. You can socially distance, and you safe from the rona. Let's get it going.
- Shake and bake.
JARED QUAY: Michael Irvin and Dez Bryant both wore 88 with the Dallas Cowboys, and Jerry Jones has now given it to first-round pick CeeDee Lamb?
JARED QUAY: Hell No. Look at them quick hands. Give him whatever number he wants.
LeBron James released the logo for "Space Jam-- A New Legacy."
JARED QUAY: Hell yeah. I thought it would look different. It looks exactly like the old one. The King also accidentally posted the video backwards on IG.
JARED QUAY: No. LeBron pretty old on the internet for some reason. He just learned of Myspace.

JARED QUAY: Hell no. Favre is probably trying to push Rodgers out of Green Bay so he can make a comeback. See, Brett Favre don't know how to let it go. He still want to play. Brett, you're too old.
Look, I know what you want. You sick of me. Hell, I'm sick of me. You want your favorite athletes in quarantine, and guess what? You going to get them because it's The Rona Diaries.
