🏈 All or Nothing: Carolina Panthers
Season 4 of the much acclaimed Amazon series is back with a new 8-episode season following the Carolina Panthers. Last season was a rough one for the Panthers so it should be an interesting peek behind the scenes.
🍦 National Ice Cream Day
We’re not going to pick sides and tell you which ice cream flavor is the best (it’s cookie dough), but we will tell you the worst flavor. Sorry, Rum Raisin 🤮
🚀 A Trio of Launches
We're awaiting a trio of launches with an Atlas V, Soyuz MS-13, and Falcon 9 all taking to the skies. Be sure to check out the Space Subkast as we've added a ton of events this week to keep you up to date with the latest launches, meteor showers, and other astronomical events.
🤗 World Emoji Day
If you follow us on Twitter, you already know that every day is Emoji Day for us. To celebrate this special holiday, give some love to an emoji you don't use enough. 🦉🦞🥝
⭐ The Best of the Rest
Check out the Forekast website for all the events we couldn't fit into this newsletter. Below are some other fun events we don't want you to miss:
Partial Lunar Eclipse - This week there's a “Half-Blood Thunder Moon Eclipse”, which will make the moon look like the Cheshire Cat’s smile but with a dark red tint. Easily the coolest name for any eclipse, ever.
The Emmy Nominations will be announced this week with D'arcy Carden and Ken Jeong making the announcements. The big news is that several big shows will be ineligible this year as they premiered after the May 31st deadline. These shows include The Handmaid’s Tale, Big Little Lies, and Stranger Things. If Game of Thrones gets a nod for best writing, we riot.
The 2019 British Open tees off this week at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. Brooks Koepka is the heavy favorite going into the tournament along with course record holder Rory McIlroy.
Two other TV shows you might want to tune into on Netflix this week: Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is back, along with season 4 of Queer Eye.
Lastly, National Daiquiri Day is this week and we’ll be celebrating by having one to cool down from this extremely hot summer.
