Super Bowl LI – Best Ever!

The New England Patriots, behind on the scoreboard most of the game, playing lethargically and not in their usual rhythmic style, overcame a big third quarter deficit to come back and tie the game in the last minute at 28-28 forcing the first overtime in Super Bowl history.

Tom Brady, seemingly out-of-sync for most of the first three quarters, showed why he is referred to as the greatest quarterback in National Football League history–emphasized after the game by none other than Terry Bradshaw. He is the only quarterback to win five Super Bowls, breaking the tie of four each with Terry Bradshaw of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. He has also won four Super Bowl MVP awards, most for any player.

Never had a team come back from more than ten points down in the greatest game of them all. New England entered the fourth quarter down 28-3, a deficit deemed impossible to overcome, unless you are Tom Brady and the New England Patriots–calm, confident, methodical.

Tom Brady was drafted in 2000 in the sixth round, 199 overall, from Michigan. Robert K. Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, now says it is the best thing the team has ever done. Guess so with five NFL Championships–Super Bowl wins–in the Coach Bill Belichick / Tom Brady era.

The Patriot’s capitalized on several Atlanta penalties and misplays scoring twenty-five unanswered points in the fourth quarter tying the game.

New England won the coin toss–heads–and chose to receive. One had to wonder, with the momentum the Patriots had built in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, if Atlanta would even touch the football in Overtime. They did not! New England marched down the field 75 yards on eight plays, scoring on James White’s 2-yard touchdown run. Game over.

New England’s experience in such games as this proved too much for a feisty Atlanta, who, for three quarters, gave New England all they could handle, but in the final analysis did not have the experience to win it. The Patriots held the ball for 40 of 60 minutes, ran more than 90 offensive plays, and exhausted the Falcons defense to the point that the 4th quarter was all New England–typical Coach Belichick.

The stunned Atlanta Falcons stood in shock when the final score flashed on the boards–34-28!

After the game, Brady was asked how he did it, how he was able to bring the Patriots back after the big deficit. «We all brought each other back,» said Brady, Super Bowl M.V.P. for a record fourth time. «We never felt out of it.»

Postscript: N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell, booed heartily by the fans, shook hands with Brady on the sidelines after the game. Ironic considering the «Deflategate» fiasco resulting in his suspending Brady for the first four games of the 2016 season.

Football and Violence – Football Or Fireball?

Recently concluded Euro 2008 was widely covered in the international media, but there was another news that attracted lesser coverage and readers. Spain’s Euro 2008 football victory party turned sour when one fan died and nearly 100 suffered injuries during wild celebrations in Madrid.

The victim, a 40-year-old man, was found lying in a pool of blood by street cleaners in the centre of the capital. The initial media reports suggested that he probably suffered a head wound.

After the national team had broken a 44-year spell, Spaniards took to the streets in wild celebrations that lasted well into the following day. Wrapped in Spanish flags fans let off fireworks and honked car horns.

Police tried to stop fans from jumping into the Cibeles fountain, the traditional way to celebrate a football victory and made baton charges to break up isolated rioting in the capital. More than 50 supporters were arrested for acts of vandalism and public disorder. Luckily there was only one reported death.

The game of football has been closely associated with hundreds of death. Many times it was a result of hooliganism or football riots and many times it was an out come of accidents or stampedes or fights among the fans.

Football and violence have been moving closely since many years. In 1314 King Edward II of UK banned football to prevent football related violence. Most of the football playing nations, have witnessed football related deaths from time to time.

In 1968, over 70 people died when crowds attending a football match in Argentina, stampeded after some youths threw burning papers on each others. In 1971, a fight broke out at a match in Brazil, killing four and injuring 1,500.

In 1964, in another football accident more than 300 football fans died and another 500 were injured in Peru in a riot during an Olympic qualifying match between Argentina and Peru.

In June 2006, Germany beat Poland in a world cup finals match, a result that meant Germany qualified for the second round in the finals. The match was marred by violent clashes between German and Polish fans. The police detained over 300 people in Dortmund after clashes broke out. German fans threw chairs, bottles and fireworks at the police. Various groups of German and Polish fans fought with each other in separate clashes. In February 2007 in Saxony, all German lower league matches were cancelled after about 800 fans attacked 300 police officers after a match.

In Turkey, before Galatasaray’s semifinal UEFA cup match with Leeds United A.F.C. in 2000, many fans were stabbed to death following street fights between Turkish and British hooligans.

At the 2006 FIFA world cup in Germany, there were limited incidences of violence, with over 200 preventative arrests. During that time, Police believe that on average each rioter consumed or threw 17 litres of beer.

In more serious situation, police had to protect Libyan fans in the Egypt from missiles being thrown at them by Egypt fans in the tier above them during a match between Egypt and Morocco.

In another football accident 125 people died and hundreds were injured when football fans stampeded at a match in Ghana in 2001. In Johannesburg, South Africa, on 14 January 1991 forty people died when fans surged toward a jammed exit to escape rival brawling fans at a match south west of Johannesburg.

On April 15, 1989 in England, Ninety-five people are killed and at least 200 injured in Britain’s worst sports disaster after a crowd surge crushed packed fans against barriers at the English F.A. Cup semifinal match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at the Hillsborough stadium.

In thousands of other cases hundreds of fans were stabbed at various places world wide. Many matches faced cancellation and many clubs paid hefty fines. Public property faced destruction in countless events. All these incidents leave the game with a tarnished image. Now most of the football playing nations, are taking extra security measures for various tournaments. Along with the governments, a lot depends on the fans as well. Only they can help curb such violence. A broader and more liberal outlook among fans is needed to make the sport a sporty affair!

Golden Palace Casino: Boldly Going Where No Online Casino Has Gone Before

Adding to a long list of unusual eBay listings, actor William Shatner (best known as Captain James T. Kirk on television’s Star Trek) sold the kidney stone he passed back in August 2005 to Golden Palace Casino Online Casino. Golden Palace Casino paid $25,000 for the iconic former Captain of the Starship Enterprise’s organ, the funds promptly rerouted to the charity Habitat For Humanity, which helps build houses for low income families.

Golden Palace Casino has, in the internet gambling world at least, become synonymous with the publicity stunt. This is the same online casino that, in August 2005, paid $1,775 for a pierogi (a polish dumpling) bearing the image of Jesus Christ. Upon winning the item, they proudly added it to their growing (and increasingly notorious) collection of modern oddities.

Other cherished artifacts include:

— A Grilled Cheese Sandwich bearing the image of the Virgin Mary ($28,000)

— A 1999 Volkswagen Golf that formerly belonged to Pope Benedict XVI

— Britney Spears’ pregnancy test (yes, used — yuck)

— A metal walking cane that an elderly woman sold in the hopes of convincing her young grandson that his grandfather’s ghost would once and for all leave their house along with it ($65,000).

In early December 2005, the online casino purchased Babe Ruth’s allegedly corked baseball bat from Lelands.com for $103,631. Now, according to Golden Palace Casino CEO Richard Rowe, they intend to saw the bat in half and resolve the long batted-around controversy once and for all.

Golden Palace Casino is even proud holder of the only known property deed to the White House — yes, the actual home of the President of the United States. Won in an auction on eBid.tv in September 2005, this Quitclaim deed to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C was also one of the least expensive items the Golden Palace Casino «museum» managed to get its hands on, costing only $43.45.

Golden Palace Casino has even paid to have its name appear in upcoming releases by famous novelists such as Hugo and Nebula award-winning science fiction writer David Brin (The Postman, the River of Time Anthology) to whom they paid $2,250 for the honor. Dave Eggers, bestselling author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, got $5,471.78 from them for a cameo appearance in his forthcoming novel, The Journey of the Fishes Overland. As with most all of Golden Palace Casino Online Casino’s unique advertising expenditures, all proceeds from this exchange will be donated to charity; in these two cases, it’s the First Amendment Project, a free speech charity.

Amassing an increasingly bizarre collection of modern oddities isn’t the only publicity stunt this online casino is engaged in. Golden Palace Casino:

— Continues to pay out thousands of dollars to individuals to tattoo the Golden Palace Casino logo on various parts of their subjects’ bodies.

— Employs a growing pool of brave and shameless souls to interrupt public sporting events by running naked across the arena with the online casino’s logo and URL emblazoned on their flesh. Folks like Mark Roberts (whose rear end is now more famous than his face could ever have been) have streaked the French and British and US Opens, the World Swimming Championships, the UEFA Cup finals, Ladies’ Day at the Royal Ascot, the World Figure Skating Championship, the 2004 Summer Olympics in Greece, Super Bowl XXXVIII, and run with the Bulls in Spain — all in the name of good, wholesome, online casino gambling.

— Sponsored Dennis Rodman’s car in the Bullrun USA 2005, a race that matches the exact route of the Cannonball Run in the 1981 Burt Reynolds movie of the same name.

— Sponsored a rowboat team that attempted a 3,000-mile crossing of the Atlantic.

The crew at Golden Palace Casino certainly knows how to draw attention to themselves. And there’s no argument, they know how to raise money for charity!

Scenario of Indian Sports Arena

Sports are essential part of a healthy daily routine. Sports do not only exercise the body muscles, but also deliver freshness and keep active. India has a great sporting history as there are many sports like Kabaddi, Wrestling, and Swimming etc., which are the important elements of Indian culture. Basically sports are of two types – indoor and outdoor. Indoor sports include the games like Billiards, Chess, etc whether the outdoor games have Cricket, Football, and Wrestling etc. In ancient time the people of India had many interesting sports for their entertainment and refreshment, especially outdoor sports. In fact, some sports have their origin in the roots of Indian culture like Kabaddi, Kho-Kho, and boat racing etc.

In present Indian sports scenario, Cricket is the most prominent sport in which India has an excellent track record. Football is another popular game in some parts of India, but Cricket has more popularity among the Indians. There are some world level sporting events in India, but most of them are devoted to Cricket. Also there are events for other games like Hockey Premier League. India has hosted many international sporting events as Hockey World Cup, Asian Games, and Commonwealth Table Tennis Championship in the past.

Apart from Cricket, Indians have delivered some excellent knocks in International sports. Indians have won many medals in Commonwealth and Asian games. In fact, Indians are the world champions in the games like Chess, Billiards etc. They were also the world Hockey champions for many times in the past. In tennis and shuttling there are some brilliant talents in India. Currently Delhi is going to host its first Commonwealth games in 2010. Indian Premier League is a well known sporting event in India, which is among the most successful domestic events in international level.

Many sporting authorities are working towards the wellness of the sports in India. Sporting bodies get aids from the government of India for developing the infrastructure and nurturing the growing talent. India has some world level stadiums like Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Major Dhyanchand stadiums etc. which have standard facilities world sports persons. These bodies are supposed to arrange the basic requirements for their concerned sports. Some legendary sports persons from India made a great impact on world stage. Major Dyanchand from hockey, Sachin Tendulkar from cricket, Pulela Gopichand from shuttling, Abhinav Bindra from shooting, Geet Sethi and Pankaj Advani from Billiards, V Anand from chess are among some of the sports persons who left a grand impact in international sports arena.

As India has some world level athletes and sports persons, they are very few as compared to other countries and population of India. Sporting authorities should concentrate on developing new talent from the roots. More sporting events should be organized to promote the sports in low levels. Sports persons have to move towards big cities for better facilities, since in there is the lack of basic requirements in towns. Still Indians have to prove their capabilities in Olympics, the greatest sporting event in international scenario. Indians have won very few personal medals in Olympics. Lack of basic requirements, fundamental facilities and promotional sporting events in root level are the main reasons behind the failure of Indian athletes in the big events like Olympics.
