Develop an Awesome Personality and Captivate the World

It is said that, ‘First impression is the last impression’, and the main key to impress anyone at very first appearance is your great personality. Your personality always illustrates about your nature. Usually, everyone gets attracted to the opposite one either by his personality or the look, though personality matters the most.  [Read more…]

Britney Spears is the Elvis Presley of Our Age

britney-spears-bikini

Saturday brought Britney Spears using social media to give the world an update on her personal gym, one that she herself had previously burnt down. It was an accident, she claims, and perhaps that’s true, but there’s still a lot of mystery and controversy surrounding that incident from a few months ago.

There’s a lot to unpack around that, but this is neither the time or space. My first thought in hearing about it was ‘oh like when Elvis Presley used to shoot his own television.’ You see, many years ago I was vocal about how Britney Spears was this generation’s Elvis Presley, and this take was vastly unpopular.

Netflix’ The Last Dance and Sunderland ‘Til I Die are among the fantastic options out there at the moment, and there are rumours of plenty more on the way. ESPN, the company behind The Last Dance, is, of course, a dab hand at making sports documentaries. And, one of its best collections is found in the stunning 30 for 30 series.

Winter Sports: Preparedness Tips for Preventing Accidents

fighting-irish-hockey

Before you head out for the slopes, the ice rink, or just for some good old-fashioned snowshoeing, make sure you’re not heading into a self-made trap. Winter accidents tend to happen mainly because people aren’t prepared for the weather conditions, aren’t physically healthy enough to be doing the thing they’re doing, or because they’re ignorant of how to safely engage in some sport or activity.

Also, icy roads and wintry conditions can lead to dicey and hazardous roads. Accidents abound on frozen highways. You might need to call up a personal injury attorney to help make sure you can achieve the best outcome possible of a really bad situation. This is commonplace in wintertime.

Have Energy for Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari Divorce Discourse? Your Life’s Not Bad!

jay-cutler-kristin-cavallari-chicago-bears-season-preview

It was just two tweeks ago today that Kristin Cavallari, “reality star,” announced that she and her husband, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, are getting divorced. This past week, Cavallari spoke out publicly, calling Cutler “lazy” and “unmotivated.”

It was a very calculated move, as K-Cav seized upon and exploited the public perception of Cutler that of a man who is rather emotionally distant and insouciant. Of course, this depiction of him is fairly consistent with the reputation that Cutler earned during his professional playing career, especially so while he was with the Chicago Bears.

Mark Hamill on Lightsaber Battle-Martial Arts Connections

Editor’s Note: (re-publication today on #MayThe4th Post originally ran in December 2015, as the first Star Wars movie in 13 years was coming out) 

What in the universe does Mark Hamill hosting a special on lightsaber duels have to do with sports? Well, not much. Unless you’re really big into fencing, which is obviously a cousin of light saber fighting. Mark Hamill, a man who needs no introduction as Luke Skywalker, will appear on ESPN’s SportsCenter Featured not because he’s doing anything overly sports-oriented.

Why Was The Number 21 Chosen To Play At Blackjack

Blackjack is without a doubt one of the most popular games at any casino, online or land-based. This has a lot to do with the fact that the game is still evolving. Not only are people discovering new ways to put new twists on an old classic, but they are discovering new strategies, new techniques, and new ways to go about winning. Simply put, blackjack is ever-evolving. That being said, it is truly important to understand the history of blackjack and why things are the way they are if you want to truly excel. Most people already know that the goal of blackjack is to reach 21 or as close to it as you can without going on, but have you ever wondered why the number 21 was chosen for the game? Understanding this might give you a better overall understanding of the game.  [Read more…]

Well, if these two crazy young anti-vaxxer kids can’t make it together in this world, then who can! Yes, reality “star” Kristin Cavallari and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, are getting divorced after a decade of marriage.

“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce,” K-Cav posted on her official Instagram page. If you need to see the original social media post, and statement (although I can’t imagine why anyone would), it’s here for you below:

I Watched Marquee Sports Network All Day and This Happened

I honestly came up with this idea back in the salad days of February; we were all so young and innocent then. If you recall the simpler times of this year’s second month, it was when the Chicago Cubs launched Marquee Sports Network, the new venture they own jointly own with Sinclair Broadcasting.

Since day one, it’s been a lightning rod for criticism. Opinion about it almost always polarizes and before a global pandemic engulfed us all, we had the luxury to get angry about how Marquee Network wasn’t available in many homes in the Cubs’ market. Now we’re wondering if we’ll even have a baseball season?

Schedule of Classic NCAA Tournament Games Airing this Week

For many of us, the NCAA Tournament, “March Madness,” is the greatest time of the year. Obviously we won’t have it this year. And while that’s absolutely awful for all involved, it’s completely neccessary and the right thing to do, for our civilization.

Hey, misery loves company, so we’re all going without the NCAA Tournament together. That’s where CBS Sports Network comes in as they will re-air 26 classic NCAA Tournament games, highlighting the first two rounds up until the Elite Eight.

Liverpool Superfan John Oliver Vents Reds Supporter Angst (Video)

john oliver liverpool transfer rumors

As you know, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver is a Liverpool FC supporter extraordinaire. The Englishman transplanted to America comedian/talk show host does not shy away from his scouser supportership, and the same holds true in the video below.

The Premier League has suspended play until April 4 over coronavirus fears. With Liverpool FC 25 points up with only nine games left, and second place Manchester City (who have ten matches remaining) only able to collect a maximum 30 points the rest of the way, Liverpool are champions-elect. There is an emergency meeting, of all 20 PL clubs, called for Thursday, and reportedly, there is little opposition to rewarding the Merseyside club the silverware.

William Hill & CBS: Why US Bookmakers Partner Up with Broadcasting Companies 

Sports betting has been one of the most profitable parts of the entertainment industry worldwide for decades, but in the USA it was banned for the most part. Recently, a Supreme Court decision made sports betting possible across the country and states have been legalizing it and implementing regulations to make it possible both live and online.  

Today, sports betting is finally becoming a reality in numerous American states and companies like William Hill are pushing to penetrate the market and also get as much marketing space as possible. To make this happen, deals such as the one made between William Hill and the popular TV network CBS have been happening in increasing numbers.
