Today we wrap up some of the top stories that we have recently covered on the news blog, so let's dive right in. Our first story takes us into the world of professional pickleball. Mike Slieve Sliva, the beloved host of sleeve senior Pickleball report, has taken center stage once again. This time, he's been featured in a thrilling documentary titled A Pickleball Story, directed by the talented Ashley Underwood. Under the banner of film 45, the documentary captures the real time journey of pro pickleball pioneers, from unlikely partners like senior citizen nudist to billionaire investors cashing in on America's latest gold rush, the stakes have never been higher. The drama unfolds as two wealthy Texas entrepreneurs form rival professional pickleball leagues and compete for the world's top players. Even sports icons LeBron James and Tom Brady have joined the game, betting big on pro pickleball by purchasing teams in an emerging league. It's a high energy, must watch documentary that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Listen to Mike as he talks a. [00:02:49] Speaker D: Little about the film sleeves here. Talking about my experience with Dream Breaker, a pickleball story I got involved with the film in about June of 2022. I got contacted and was asked if I would be interested in participating on some level. And I wasn't really sure what exactly my role would be, and I didn't really hear back after that. So I didn't get involved with the film on a regular basis until about six months after the initial contact. And at that point, it was made clear to me that I was probably going to end up narrating parts of the film. And so they had me shoot some video on a phone and upload it to Dropbox and gave me different themes and different topics. It was really, in a sense, sort of a long form audition to see if I would fit in the film, because I obviously, I live a pretty alternative lifestyle, live in the middle of nowhere in a mongolian ger, which most people would call a yurt, with my wife and my cat and my dog. So I was sort of this hippie dude living out in the middle of nowhere playing pickleball. And they figured after I sent them about five months of videos, that, yeah, I was probably going to be a fit. I ended up being in the film, which premiered here at the end of May. I enjoyed the film. I thought my role was very interesting, where I was kind of transitioning between scenes and explaining what was going on and filling in some of the gaps. And it was sort of a different look. Obviously, everything was sort of high profile and these athletes running around and big money being spent on, you know, this game by millionaires and celebrities and billionaires. And then they cut to me, you know, sitting with my tie dye shirt on, playing around on my base. So I think it took a little bit of edge off the film and gave a little bit of comic relief. So I think it's a good film. It talks about, really, the money being poured into this game at all levels, but specifically the professional level. And, well, it's incredible, the people that are investing in this game, the LeBron James, the Tom Brady's, Kim Kleisters, you name it, Chris Everett. And there's billionaires that are kind of ruling the roost, so to speak. So, yeah, check out Dreambreaker, a pickleball story. I think you'll enjoy it, and it'll show you kind of how capitalism is working on a sport that's exploding globally. [00:04:56] Speaker B: Mike, where can we see the film? [00:04:58] Speaker D: You can watch currently at the San Francisco Film Festival, which is going on, and you can stream it as well, and there's a link that will be shared. [00:05:06] Speaker B: Thanks, Mike. Personally, as an editor, and producer of his pickleball podcast. I have witnessed the rapid progression of the sport and the events and the timeline as it progressed through the documentary. It definitely gave me a surreal feeling watching it unfold on the screen.

Several eyewitnesses took to Reddit, sharing their sightings and providing similar details with slight variations. They even shared still frames from recorded videos of this peculiar phenomenon. Speculations have been swirling on Reddit, suggesting that the object might have been a SpaceX launch from Florida. Although it was launched on the opposite coast earlier that evening, the suggested flight path would have potentially taken it over the reported sighting areas in the southwest after completing a global orbit. While this theory seems plausible, it's important to note that it hasn't been officially confirmed yet. The mystery of the strange UFO over Arizona continues to intrigue and fascinate.
