Entertaining And Useful: Pay By Phone Casinos In Australia and New Zealand

australia

Who doesn’t love a good casino? It’s one of those “once in a while” things people like to do for fun. It’s even better when travelling because you don’t need to fly back home to gamble. Australia and New Zealand are full of casinos that offer all sorts of games and activities. However, not everyone likes the idea of carrying cash around and paying upfront at the table – which is where “pay by phone casinos” come into play.

33 “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” Commuter/Geography Plot Holes, Mistakes

The 1987 John Hughes holiday classic “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” is considered by many to be the best Thanksgiving movie of all time. Many families, including my own, screen the ’80s film at family gatherings this week, and in some cases, those watch parties involve pointing out all the glaring plot holes. Such is the case in my family, which includes several engineers, a few pilots and other assorted non-stupid people.

Throw in a fact-finding journalist, in a holiday environment where the bourbon is free-flowing, and now you’ve got another layer added to this timeless tale of commuter headaches on steroids. PT&A is a story of extremist Murphy’s Law (“everything that can go wrong, will go wrong”), or basically taking American Airlines, anywhere, at any time. Hey oh!

Bobblehead Museum: What it is and Why You Should Go

The very concept of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is pretty cool in and of itself. Just the fact that it exists is pretty nice, but to actually see and experience it, well, that’s next level. Located on the fringe of downtown Milwaukee, in a gentrifying warehouse district, you’ll find a 4,000 square foot space with over 7,000 different bobbles.

We toured the Bobblehead Museum with Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO, and marveled at all the gift ideas for the baseball fan in your life. Sklar and Brad Novak, the Hall’s current President, opened the Museum, in its current form, in 2019.

Fall the Best Time to See Neyland Stadium, Tennessee Vols’ Home

There was once a fantastic book, written by a former sports writer, and it chronicled his adventures and misadventures when he hit every single SEC football venue in one season. That sports writer later transitioned into a professional troll and lunatic conspiracy theorist, and thus, we’re not going to plug his book nor his name, which has sadly become a more relevant one since he sold out.

But the chapter on Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, home of the Tennessee Volunteers, was a brilliant read and it was in my mind during my November day on Rocky Top.

Nebraska vs Northwestern in Ireland About More than Football

The next edition of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic will feature the Northwestern Wildcats taking on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Dublin, Ireland on August 27, 2022. Staged at Aviva Stadium, this will count as a “home game” for the Wildcats, with Notre Dame then giving up a home game when they play Navy in this event in 2023.

Representatives of both the game and Ireland’s tourism bureau were on hand last night when Northwestern lost at home, 17-12, to the Iowa Hawkeyes in a game that was most notable for the political protests that transpired on the field.

Playing Golf Is a Lifestyle: Expectations vs. Reality for British Players

Without a doubt, golf is a unique performer among traditional offline sports. It won’t let you burn as many calories as the same time spent playing tennis or basketball, but the value of this discipline is in its mental aspect.

Gophers Coach P.J. Fleck on Art, Architecture and Travel

NIL, or Name, Image and Likeness was the hot topic of the college football talking season. No surprise, it came up repeatedly at multiple media days. We asked Minnesota Coach P.J. Fleck what his dream deal would have been, back during his playing days at Northern Illinois, had this existed during his time.

“I’m enamored with architecture,” the former NIU wide receiver said today during his podium session,” so the Sears Tower back then, probably something like that. I’m also a big fan of John Deere lawnmowers. So it would have been John Deere lawnmowers at Sears, believe it or not- because in DeKalb, there’s not a lot.”
