An Introduction to the World of Cricket

Cricket is known to bring good luck in some countries especially in China and we are talking about the insect, not the actual game of cricket that you can watch on CPL live stream, crickets are used in games, just like two spiders fighting each other on a stick.

These insects are nocturnal and known to carry disease but it’s not harmful to humans, only a male cricket can chirp, and depending on the temperature they can chirp all day, and these insects are cold-blooded they eat small ants and even some small rodents can be a victim. They can multiply in a large amount and can reach up to 1,500 eggs hatchlings, these insects are also being sold in some countries especially in the region of southeast Asia. Cricket fights are being practiced for hundreds of years and it is still being practiced up to this day.

There are many types of crickets and to name some of them are Mormon crickets, weta crickets, Jerusalem crickets, trigonidiinae cricket (sword-tail cricket), Myrmecophagidae and the most common cricket is grilling and there’s many more. Some people are culturing these insects for there income source and for there personal fun. Just note if your culturing many crickets, you may want to consider separating those aggressive crickets, that’s attacking and killing those weak ones.

But in this recent technology innovation, there are programs on the internet that caters real cricket games and free cricket games, and on the real cricket game you can bet on the said online program, but this is only seasonal because it is being played for real, only a video stream is being played on the programs that you bet in.

There are buy-in rules if you want to bet on the cricket game, just like in poker that you need to buy in for a certain amount. On the other hand, there are free online cricket games, and you can play all day, but this is not accurate since it only uses animated graphics, you can find these games in free directory games, and I must say these are fun cricket games. There are also cricket races, that two or more crickets race to the finish line.

Some people already consider this as there sports because they earn a decent amount of money, but I say its a gamble since there are money and luck involved before you can engage in this kind of activity.

It’s really up to you whether you must engage in this kind of activity, but if you have the guts and money then I say you must try this game, because its really fun for past the time, and the thing is if you get lucky you earn money.

Alcatraz Inmates Extreme Sports

On June 11, 1962, Alcatraz inmates Frank Lee Morris, and brothers John and Clarence Anglin achieved the “impossible” and became the first convicts to (allegedly) escape “The Rock.” Since …

On June 11, 1962, Alcatraz inmates Frank Lee Morris, and brothers John and Clarence Anglin achieved the “impossible” and became the first convicts to (allegedly) escape “The Rock.” Since it became a federal penitentiary in 1933, invincibility has always been a key ingredient of the Alcatraz myth. The most dangerous and highly publicized factors against a safe escape included deadly currents, freezing water temperatures, high winds, stinging jellyfish, congested boat traffic, and sharks.

Because the bodies of Morris and the Anglin brothers were never found, the authorities had assumed that all three men drowned in San Francisco Bay during their attempt. At the time, the strongest evidence of their demise were the bits and pieces of the escapees’ raft and life preservers that had been found in the water the next day,

Over the years, however, others have begged to differ with the invincibility of Alcatraz.

Sunriser Swimmers

A modern threesome, Gary Emich, Pedro Ordenes, and Steven Hurwitz (dubbed the “Sunriser Swimmers”) had been proudly commemorating the 1962 escape for several years, retracing the convicts’ alleged escape route every June11. In fact, on June 11, 2007, the three open-water triathlon swimmers, marked the 500th time that they had swum from the South End Rowing Club to Alcatraz Island — and back! Their acts, of course, debunked Alcatraz’s 100 years of alleged invincibility.

Frank Morris and the Anglin brothers, however, were probably not in peak thriathlon shape like the modern day Sunriser Swimmers. In fact, the modern threesome in their exploits had faced challenges that were even more extreme than the escapees’ A;catraz challenges. Both Emich and Hurwitz had circumnavigated Manhattan Island. Emich alone had swum the Amazon River, braving piranha and other predators. Ordenes, a native Chilean and the strongest swimmer of the three, is currently training to swim across the Bering Strait from Alaska to Russia.

The Alcatraz Aquathon and Swim

Established in 1983 by triathlete Joe Oakes, the Alcatraz Aquathon and Swim is another popular Alcatraz event, but “on steroids.” The event consists of a swim to Alcatraz, a 15-mile bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge, and a 14-mile footrace in Marin County. The procedure of the trifactor classes will have complied with adult swimming from us.  It will provide adequate safety and protection to the beginners in the pool. 

On August 5, 2007, a 51-year-old woman became the first to die during the Alcatraz Challenge Aquathon.

Other Alcatraz challengers

The Sunriser Swimmers haven’t been the only ones to debunk the Alcatraz myth. There have actually been dozens of swimmers who have successfully made it from the San Francisco shore to Alcatraz and back.

One of the earliest recorded swims to and from Alcatraz Island was by Mabel Green in 1923. In 1933, three more women swam to and from Alcatraz as a protest against the government turning the island into a federal penitentiary. While their achievements were strong, they weren’t strong enough to debunk the Alcatraz myth.

Uncompetitive Advantage – New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and One or Two More..

Some people out there are okay with the fact that MLB Baseball does not have a salary cap in place to control/create a competitive balance in the sport. Some …

Some people out there are okay with the fact that MLB Baseball does not have a salary cap in place to control/create a competitive balance in the sport.

Some will argue that not having the salary cap, especially on those teams willing to spend above and beyond the rest of the league (i.e. New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox), allows less financially blessed teams to build teams in a more artful way. Thus, developing almost a subculture of developing teams that win the World Series once every 4 or 6 years, thereby making their championship seasons all that much sweeter, because they did it with a knowledge of and a passion for the game of baseball.

Then there are others who just like the idea that the bigger cities, with the bigger populations, with richer fans, who shell out more dollars to see their teams because of the cost of living in their respective areas, deserve to have more wins the rest of the league. Max Kellerman of 1050 ESPN Radio New York, asserts that is unfair in leagues like the NFL and NBA that smaller cities can win just as many or more championships as big cities that hold a bigger portion of the population. He is of the belief that the salary cap awards the majority and those who are forced to pay more to see their teams. And that is a very fair argument.

However, teams are seeming getting richer and richer, as more and more fans are coming to the parks, regional sports networks are experiencing growth rates out of this world, and Major League Baseball is taking on new distributors for their television broadcast.

So with the influx of money, teams can afford to pay more to their players. However, the bigger cities’ paper-stacks are growing at much faster rates than the small cities’ bank accounts are. Thus, the payrolls for big cities are growing further and further away from the small cities’ payrolls.

And as we have seen, this influx of money coupled with the growing disparity of payrolls capabilities, have resulted in only big city teams being in the market for big time players.

The biggest contract in the history of baseball was awarded to Alex Rodriguez this winter. But even before that, as he was in the free agency market, there were only a few teams that could even afford to sit down and talk with him. And even those big cities like Los Angeles, Detroit, and the New York Mets didn’t feel as if they could devote so much of their payroll to just one player. Consequently, A-Rod went to the New York Yankees, who can afford anybody as the richest team in baseball.

The biggest contract for a pitcher was also signed this past winter. That went to Johan Santana. In his search for an adequate trade, Santana was only considered by the usual suspects; the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Los Angles Dodgers, and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. There were no Oakland, St. Louis or Milwaukee teams in the hunt. Hence, Santana went to the New York Mets, another big city, with a burgeoning regional network and millions of fans that come to the stadium every season.

Is this the advantage we want the big cities to have? An advantage where certain athletes garner so much money in an overflowing market that small cities aren’t even really players in the entire spectrum of free agency because they can’t afford to sign players to contracts bigger than their annual, and sometimes bi-annual, payrolls.

I wouldn’t think that’s what we want, because it will only be a matter of time before these big cities can afford to have payrolls 4 and 5 times the size of other ones, as their regional sports channels and homepages allot for specified and creative advertising opportunities, that can benefit advertisers more and more.

Yeah, there is a luxury tax, but it hasn’t exactly stopped the Yankees and Red Sox from winning 95 games every season. And it won’t stop it in the future, if these teams put out such a good product, that paying players gross amounts of money is worth it in terms of fan appeal and ad dollars.

So Commissioner Bud Selig, you got your extension. Now fix this payroll issue before you end up with a league where any and all parity will cease to exist, as we know it.

Be it NY Yankees or Boston Red Sox, it has taken a lot of hard work and dedication for them to reach a position where they can demand a salary of their choice and if this hard work is something that everyone takes up then they too will be in the same position in due course. All it requires is a little sweating it out on the playing field which feels more like a 안전놀이터.

Tony Kornheiser is Ruining “Monday Night Football”

I’ll be the first to say it: I miss Paul Maguire. The chemistry he had on ESPN’s Sunday Night Football with Mike Patrick and Joe Theismann was fantastic. He …

I’ll be the first to say it: I miss Paul Maguire. The chemistry he had on ESPN’s Sunday Night Football with Mike Patrick and Joe Theismann was fantastic. He always made me laugh, he got along with his boothmates and he was GOOD. But when ESPN lost the Sunday game to NBC, they took over Monday Night Football. Al Michaels and John Madden left ABC for NBC’s Sunday game and this left ESPN with a problem: who was going to take over Monday Night Football?

Whoever was in charge of making this decision must have been gone the day this came up, because only someone truly clueless would have decided to disband a great team like Patrick, Maguire and Theismann. That has to be what happened. It is the only logical conclusion I can come up with, because no one in their right minds would have thought that Tony Kornheiser would be a great analyst. Would someone at ESPN find out who came up with this idea and smack him upside the head please?!

Mike Tirico is a great play-by-play commentator and Theismann has done his usual wonderful job as an analyst. But throw Kornheiser into the mix and you have a tension-filled booth. There is no chemistry between the three men. Tirico and Theismann get along very well, but it seems that neither one of them likes Kornheiser, and you get the feeling he doesn’t really like them either.

Why am I on Kornheiser’s case? I spent the evening watching the Seattle Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders. Granted, the game was very lopsided, with the Seahawks running over the Raiders 16-0. Granted, the Oakland offensive line allowed the Seattle defense to sack their quarterback nine times. Granted, it was pouring rain, very windy and overall a pretty bad game. But it would have been a LOT more enjoyable without Kornheiser sitting in the booth, whining!

Kornheiser has an antagonistic approach to things, which works well on the show he does with Mike Wilbon, Pardon the Interruption. But on MNF, he isn’t going back and forth, arguing points. He is there to give his views on a football game. While his quick wit and on-air barbs work great when arguing one-on-one with Wilbon, but he brings this same wit and barb throwing to a bigger audience and all it is doing is causing friction. During tonight’s game, he gave out “Tony Awards”, saying it was the only time that he could get a word in edgewise, because Tirico and Theismann won’t let him talk. He had the nerve to give an award to Tirico for the best costume during the Halloween race they had during last week’s halftime game. People dressed up in oversized costumes of Tirico, Theismann, Kornheiser, Michael Irvin, Chris Berman, Tom Jackson and Steve Young ran a race just for the entertainment value. It was supposed to be fun and silly, which it was (Steve Young won, in case you missed the race), even when the Tirico character tripped on his oversized shoes, fell down and lost his head. Kornheiser thought it was hilarious and decided to give Tirico an award for it. The look on Tirico’s face was one of surprise; if you were really paying attention, you could tell he was angry. I don’t blame him. I thought it was a very petty thing to do. Yet another glaring point that the tension in the booth is overwhelming.

Please do not get me wrong. I’m not saying Kornheiser isn’t qualified: he’s more than qualified. He has been writing for the Washington Post since 1979. The Tony Kornheiser Show premeired in November 1997, ending in March 2004. Pardon the Interruption began in September 2001 and is still going strong. His knowledge about the sports world, his staunch defense of his opinions and the sparring style that he uses with Wilbon works well on the PTI show. It’s a one-on-one show, one that can be stopped if a mistake is made (although I’m not sure if they do that or not, but the possibility is there). You can’t do that on MNF. The guys in the booth are not there to do a three-hour PTI show. They are there to give analysis and play-by play of a live game. I think Kornheiser seems to forget that. He tries to bait Theismann and Tirico, taking personal jabs at them and just flat out being argumentative about everything. I know the ratings are good; I’m not disputing that. But I have a problem with a man who is acting worse than my twelve-year-old son when he doesn’t get his way.

Get rid of Kornheiser when the season is over. I don’t mean fire him from ESPN, just dump him from MNF. Bring back Maguire; he is a great guy and a wonderful booth analyst who has great chemistry with whoever is next to him in the booth. Let Kornheiser go back to what he does best: irritating Wilbon on PTI.

Maguire has a massive fan following to his name and is far more talented than the overrated Kornheiser, with the latter being more of a liability to the team while the former is a valuable asset. The football index bonus code stands as a proof of Maguire’s popularity when he secured 68% votes compared to Kornheiser’s 32%.

If you’re exploring the various options for gymnastics bars for home, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get one soon. These bars are very effective and they are a great way to ensure you exercise and stay in shape.

However with gymnastics bars the entire body is worked out very efficiently. Each muscle in the body is stretched and strengthened with gymnastics bars. This also ensures that the body is flexible and there is no need to spend money on extra equipment as well.

Another advantage with gymnastics bars is the safety of children in the house. With other gym equipment there is always a possibility of something going wrong when children are around it. This is especially possible with dumbbells or a treadmill. However with gymnastics bars there is no chance of anything happening as the bars are out of reach of children making them the safest equipment to have around.
