CAA Sports
In early April, CAA Sports sent me a PDF. I don't open attachments from strangers, so I simply replied such and asked them to send me text. They never did. Today, while reviewing my emails, I decided to convert the PDF to text myself and read it. CAA Sports has demanded that I stop using their client's names and pictures. They claim "The unauthorized misappropriation of an individual's name and likeness for a commercial purpose is an infringement of his personal rights, privacy rights and common law trademark rights". Wow! Sounds like some pretty phony claims. I'm just wondering what the fans think of their heros threatening legal action for using their names. This letter was specific to Warrick Dunn, but CAA also asked me to remove their other clients; Brady Quinn, Tony Romo, Cadillac Williams, Mark Clayton and Malt Stover.

Online Casinos

The following is a paid review.

Casino Scrutiny is a high quality online casino portal with honest reviews and opinions about online casinos. The owner is a gambler and poker player with extensive knowledge of online casinos. The website contains reviews for many online casinos; Golden Casino, Rushmore Casino, English Harbour and many more. Unlike other gambling review sites, not all the reviews are positive. The author actually recommends against some sites with clear reasons. The reviews are often a very thorough run-down of the authors experience with the site. They also reveal various sign-up bonus dollars that you can earn as a player. These are gold. You can simply sign-up at all the casinos they have enumerated, drop a few pounds into your account, get the free sign-up bonus and play until either you go broke or you hit a jackpot. This is plenty of entertainment for your coin. There are also countless web pages on online poker strategy, with a focus on roulette, craps and blackjack. There's a section on recent poker news and another with a categories list of links to other gambling websites. Many of these links are to other education web pages about online gambling. The site is supported using affiliate links, rather than ads, which I think is a good idea, as it removes a lot of the clutter you see in other similar sites.

Ponoco Test Day
Today, we picked the winner of the 4 Pocono Raceway Test Day tickets. I've emailed the person. If you didn't get an email, then sorry, you didn't win. If the person doesn't respond or decided they cannot attend, then I may pick another winner. Thanks to all that participated. Maybe next time. We were suppose to get some NHL posters, but they never arrived.
