‘I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years. I got no change coming back that’s for sure. And not too many regrets,’ he continued.

‘Ok, gotta go. I’m gunna find out just what in the hell is going on down in that fruit cellar,’ he joked at the end, referencing the grisly end his character met in Evil Dead II.

The actor also included a close-up photo of himself with a hint of a smile.

Hicks’ post directed his followers to the booking agency run by his friend Dominic Mancini, who created a GoFundMe to cover the actor’s medical expenses, which exceeded its goal within 24 hours.

‘Whether you admire Danny on screen, were lucky enough to meet him in person at a convention, or just talked to him on social media — we can all agree that Danny is one of the most humble, down to earth, funny, talented, and generous people you will ever meet,’ Mancini wrote. ‘

He always gives 100% to his fans and friends, on screen and off screen. Now, I am kindly asking that we return that favor and help Danny and his family get through some tough times.’

Mancini also wrote that his company would be setting up an online store for fans to buy autographs and signed memorabilia from Hicks, which would be open until July 6.

Hicks is best known for his long association with director Sam Raimi, going back to his early low-budget horror films and continuing with bigger budget fare years later.

He played Jake, a local hillbilly who meets a bad end, in Evil Dead II, a reboot and sequel to the horror classic which added a dash of humor to the proceedings and became a touchstone of the genre in its own right.

He also appeared in the Raimi-produced slasher film Intruder, as well as Raimi’s thriller Darkman, starring Liam Neeson.

Later, he’d play small roles for the director in Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Oz The Great And Powerful (2013).

Patrick Mahomes says he just wants a healthy baby and doesn’t care if he has a boy or a girl

Patrick Mahomes says he just wants a healthy baby and doesn’t care if he has a boy or a girl. 

The quarterback told Kansas City’s 610 Sports Radio’s The Drive that gender wasn’t his biggest concern, but health.

‘I’m just super-excited, hopefully I have a healthy baby and somebody I’ll be able to love for the rest of my life,’ he said after he and his fiancee Brittany Matthews announced Tuesday that they’re expecting their first child together.

He added that this year was about growing up and he and Matthews evolving as a family.  

Matthews, a 25-year-old fitness entrepreneur, posted a shot of the pair together Monday holding an ultrasound.

She captioned the shot, ‘Mom & Dad, taking a small detour to the wedding’ as she and the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback embraced. The quarterback and his longtime love have dated since they both attended Whitehouse, Texas’s Whitehouse High School, going to the prom in 2013. 

Mahomes and Matthews got engaged earlier this month at Arrowhead Stadium as the signal-caller and his teammates collected their Super Bowl rings.

Matthews said on social media, ‘My heart is so full! I love this man so incredibly much and today was so so special! Couldn’t imagine this day being any more perfect.’ 

Patrick’s brother Jackson Mahomes said in response, ‘You guys will be the best parents!! CANT WAIT TO BE uncle Jack!!!’ 

Matthews’ friend Kayla Nicole, who was previously romantically linked to Mahomes’ teammate Travis Kelce, also chimed in with a supportive message.

‘I mean I thought it was gonna be hard for y’all to top 2020, but BOOM,’ she said. ‘A baby Mahomie??!?!?!!? CANT WAIT. Love y’all

Mahomes’ contract made him the highest-paid athlete in the history of professional sports, surpassing the $426.5 million deal baseball superstar Mike Trout inked with the Los Angeles Angels last year.

In the interview, Mahomes said he thinks his Kansas City Chiefs can recreate the run Tom Brady had during his time with the Patriots after he was asked about the chances of a dynasty like Brady’s Pats, which won six Super Bowls in nine appearances in the big game from 2001 until 2019. (Brady’s era with the Pats ended earlier this year when he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.)

Mahomes – who ended the team’s 50-year Super Bowl drought earlier this year with a win over the San Francisco 49ers – said that ‘it’s going to take everybody in the organization, top-down, to do something like that,’ crediting the Pats’ attention to detail under head coach Bill Belichick.

‘If you watch how they run their organization, how they run their football team, how they’re coached, how they play … they give 120 percent every single rep, every single practice,’ said Mahomes, who signed a 10-year, $503 million contract extension with the team this past summer.

‘That’s what we have to try to do, try to strive for,’ he said, ‘that’s why it doesn’t happen a lot in the NFL – it’s because you can’t have that culture every single year it seems like.’

Belichick was at a loss for words when asked about Mahomes after he again dominated on the national stage Monday, tossing four touchdowns and running in another in his team’s 34-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.

‘All the superlatives that have been said about him, I’d just be repeating them all,’ Belichick told ESPNs Mike Reiss of Mahomes, who achieved a massive feat in becoming the fastest-ever NFL player to reach the 10,000 passing yard milestone, needing just 34 games to do so.

Mahomes credited Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for having built ‘built a great culture’ with the team, which also features standout players such as wide receiver Tyreek Hill, tight end Travis Kelce and safety Tyrann Mathieu.

‘We’re just gonna take it week-by-week, day-by-day, and try to get the best out of each other every single day,’ he said. ‘And then when we look back at the end of our careers, we’ll have no regrets because we know that we left everything we had out there on the field and in the media room.’
