I waste a few minutes everyday of my life reviewing comments like the following.
Mikel u are a talented and lucky player,love ur style of play keep it up
Seriously, if your an athlete and report stuff like this, then it's hard for me to take your abuse reports seriously.
Of late, someone calling herself Jillian Domani has been posting on Facebook, Formspring and Talk-Sports that she was dating several high profile athletes. She often posted on the Jonathan Toews girlfriend forum [http://www.talk-sports.net/nhl/girlfriend.aspx/Jonathan_Toews] that she dated Toews and his teammate; Patrick Kane. She appears to have created an elaborate network of friends who like to discuss the relationship status of athletes on Talk-Sports. She also befriended me and created fake profiles for her boyfriends and close friends. She even texted and called many of her Facebook friends from a 312 area code.
Some posters investigated and found that she had stolen her pics from a girl living in Austin, Texas. The girl, whose identity was stolen, contacted me on Facebook. I asked her to accept my FB friendship so that I may determine if she was a fake. I reviewed her FB account. She has pics and wall posts dating back more than a year. She has an elorate connection of real friends who have been tagged in a very large set of photographs. It's impossible for me to believe that this Texas girl could have created such a detailed FB account for more than a year, simply to discredit Jillian. As such, I have believe that Jillian stole her identity and created a completely fake profile.
When it became public information that she may have stolen the pics she claimed were her own, Jillian changed her FB profile name to Jillyun Ruhnay. She once told me that Rene was her middle name. You can still find her FB profile [http://www.facebook.com/saeeeglopur], but it is now completely private and she has unfriended myself and nearly all others. About two dozen girls have now contacted me and told me similar stories about their relationship online with Jillian. Many of the girls claimed to have established a very close relationship with Jillian online and over the phone. When pressed to meet her online friends, she always devised an excuse not to meet up. She claimed she had cystic fibrosis and was a medical student.
Review of the series to date.
Avalanche v Sharks
Sharks are looking at another early exit from the playoffs. I blame Joe Thornton. It's hard to believe that one of the largest players in the league, plays one of the softest games in the league. Can Craig Anderson do it two more times?
Kings v Canucks
The Sedin's took over in the 3rd period to tie the series. This series is gonna come down to Luongo and the Sedin's will. Once again the NHL looks stupid by screwing up the kicking the puck into the net rule.
Preds v Hawks
Preds are surprising. I thought they might have a chance if the Hawks goalies fail, but other than one bad goal, Niemi has been primed. The Hawks offense appears to be on empty.
Wings v Yotes
Can one goalie defeat an entire team? Only in hockey. Illya Bryzgalov is the series. If he plays awesome, then the Coyotes win. If he plays great, then the Coyotes lose.
Habs v Caps
Habs are completely outclassed. Don't blame the goalies here. OK, maybe Theodore for blowing game one and almost blowing game two. The Caps are going deep. Only a goalie can stop them now (or maybe a Kid).
Bruins v Sabres
And I thought the Bruins couldn't score. With Vanek, the Sabres appear to have no offense. Their season is done. They need to shop for scoring depth to support the franchise; Ryan Miller.
Flyers v Devils
Flyers stunk down the stretch. WTF!? This series looks like a couple AHL teams. Devils are done. Flyers are done next rounds.
Sens v Pens
If the Ottawa citizens are really lucky, then they will be able to catch the Sidney Crosby show one more time. I can't wait for the Pens v Caps semi-final. This'll be a classic.
Yesterday, NASCAR.com published an article where Denny Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Ford, disputes Denny Hamlins claim of bad luck. God himself disputed Mike Fords claim, as 24 hours later Hamlin's engine folded when he geared up on lap #1 at Pocono. He returned to the track a few laps into the race and his engine folded once again when he geared up. If Denny Hamlin isn't the unluckiest racer on NASCAR, then I don't know what luck is. BTW, Joe Gibbs, you might want to fire Mike Ford for created a rift on his team and looking like an idiot.
Today, I won both the Nextel Chase for the Cup and the Daytona 500 on EASports' NASCAR 08. This game got horrible reviews, but it's the only video game to catch my fancy in the last decade.
In the my first year of Earning Your Stripes, I started in Whelen, although I had qualified for Craftsman (the 2nd level). I wanted to experience the entire game, but after winning by first 7 Whelen races, I decided to move up. Although I missed a couple of early season Craftsman races, I still won the entire series in my first year. Moving up to NNS proved difficult and took me about a year. This allowed me to win my 2nd Craftsman Truck Series title running away. In my 3rd year, I started in NNS and again won this series running away. The game didn't allow me to qualify for Nextel until the last 12 races of the season. I easily and quickly qualified. My teammate was Mark Martin and I was able to share draft him into winning the last couple races of the season and qualify for the Chase. I then share drafted him to victory a few times in the Chase, while putting Kurt Busch into the wall a half dozen times as he was winning enough to compete with Martin. Martin won the Chase with me pushing him across the finish line.
I was excited with the start of my 4th year with a chance to win the Nextel Cup and Daytona 500. I used my winnings to upgade my engine for the Daytona 500. Oops! The upgraded engine caused my tires to overheat and I had to pit earlier and more often than I had hoped. It took another race before I realized my mistake and corrected it by reducing my gear setup. I went on to win 23 of the 36 races. I then won the Daytona 500 in my 5th year and retired. I also won the NNS in my 4th year giving me 5 titles (2 Craftsman, 2 NNS and 1 Nextel).
Here's hoping NASCAR 09 is more challenging. NASCAR 08 is very intense and the career mode is awesome, but I found the game rather easy. The reviews of 09 seems to indicate I might get my wishes.
Online Casino Suite is a directory of the best Online Casinos, gaming software, videos and books. The reviews at this website have been compiled by real online players with 7 years of experience gambling online. The site only reviews online casinos that meet their fairness, payout, secure, payout, bonus, reward and customer service criteria.
They have pages reviewing UK Casinos, Slots, Poker, Video Poker, Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Craps, Keno, Bingo, Sweepstakes, Books, Magazines, Movies, Software and much more.
Beyond their comprehensive reviews, they also have sections where they list casino bonuses and free games. I always check out the casino bonus sections of these gambling portals for bonuses that I wasn't already aware of. They had quite a selection. They als had a few free casinos listed, which I appreciate as I enjoy the game more than gambling.
Don't forget to check out their blog, casino news and subscribe to their RSS feed and newsletter. Their newsletter has over 1000 subscribers and growing.
The most original part of this site is their casino blacklist. They list the casino companies and all their properties for many reasons including nonpayment of player winnings, corrupt software resulting in fixed percentage payouts and non-random gaming, copyright and/or licensing violations, lack of security with private and financial information, shared databases, and non-response to inquiries. I really appreciated this section and dropped a lot of online casinos from my own rotation.
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.
