  1. Madden 2004, the best selling football franchise has been released recently and it is GOOD! I have personally had a chance to test the game out and let me tell you that its gameplay is much better than that of NFL2K5. The player animations are all much smoother and the graphics are awesome. I am very satisfied with EA this year. The focus has been on Defense this year with a "Fear the D" theme featuring Ray Lewis on the cover. It is hard to throw passes now!! The defense is so hard but it is so realistic! Gone are the days of long bombs. I think I have been able to throw one long bomb successfully. Many minor adjustements were amde the game as well. In the franchise mode you can now create your own custom fan!!! I think this is a pretty neat feature. So football fans if you want the most authentic and realistic game go pick up your copy of Madden 2004. If you cant afford to get it then go for NFL2K5. Otherwise you cant go wrong with Madden! Although I wish MAdden dropped their price a little too! You can always hope right?

    Lance Armstrong

    Lance Armstrong now holds the record of winning 6 times in the Tour de France since the 101 years that the Tour de France has been going on!! Many speculated whether or not he would win in the early weeks of the race but sure enough he managed to pull himself together to the top once again. During the race he acted modestly by not saying anything about winning or losing the race. However it is when he finally went to receieve his trophy after the race, he really celebrated. Good job Lance keep it up!
  3. DC United lost to the local Richmond soccer team 2-1 yesterday. There was just no one playing soccer at the level that they should have been playing yesterday, which is at the professioanl level. I hope DC United gets its act together quickly.

    Nfl 2k5

    Sega's NFL 2K5 has been released earlier than Madden 2005 this year, catching many people off guard. It has gotten an outstanding review from gamespot.com and sega has given a price drop of this football game to a crazy $19.99!!!! This is especially good news for Sega fans but it is also tempting for Madden fans as well. I personally am a Madden fan and I might just pick up nkl2k5 for fun to use the first person view mode which I thought is pretty cool. Sega has done very sneaky marketing for this years football season because everyone plays madden. So sega has made a move to get some market share in the football game industry.
  5. Kobe Bryant has decided to remain with the LA lakers for next season. He signed a $136.4 million contract over the course of seven years. He said that he was hurt by many people thinking that he was involved with the leaving of coach Phil Jackson and Shaquille Oneal. However more than the loss of his coach and his team mate, Kobe might be facing sexual assault charges and facing up to four years of jail time. We will see what happens next......

    Shaquille Oneal!!!

    Shaquille Oneal might leave the team that no one thought could lose. The Lakers have been criticized just like the NY Yankees in baseball or the Real Madrid of soccer. People thought the team they had was a bunch of all stars. However this year the Detroit Pistons proved that you don't have to have an all star team to win the NBA finals. All it takes is a little TEAMwork. This brings me back to Shaq. Shaq has decided that he wants to leave the Los Angeles Lakers before his contract is up. Now if he wants to receive the rest of that money he will have to stay another season or so to get that money. There are talks between shaq and the miami heat right now but Pat Riley said that he dislikes him because he is a player that can leave as soon as he has come to a team. The Lakers are risking right now the chance of losing their two best superstars in one sitting! Kobe Bryant might not return based on his case and other issues. Shaq is right now on the brink of leaving so the Lakers could very well be dismantled of their prowess soon. Should Shaq stay with the Lakers? Or should he sign with the Heat or other NBA team???
  7. Sounds really cool tomofromtokyo. I have never seen a live kabuki show. Maybe I will go and check the show out if I have the opportunity!! Thanks for the info......
  8. In reply to your question digismurf, DOOM III will only be available on the oc at the time of its release.
  9. A cleaning lady, Geraldine Williams, from the state of Massachusetts has won the megamillion lotto for a whopping $294 million!! She has become now the second largest jackpot won from a single lotto winner in the United States. She was given the option of choosing between $11 million a year until the $294 million was paid or a lump sum of $168 million. Both options are all before taxes of course. In the end she chose to go with a lump sum and she took home a check for $117,600,088 after taxes. Lucky Lady!!

Please reply if interested and I will send some pictures of my current computer I built from scratch. My current computer Specs are: Processor- AMD Xp 2500+ overclocked to AMD XP 3200+ Motherboard- Asus A7N8X Power Supply- 420 Watt Case- Raidmax Scorpio RAM- Geil Dual DDR 512MB Western Digital Caviar Edition 80 GB Video Card- Sapphire ATI 9600 Pro (overclocked also) Sound Card- Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum This system cost me about $600-700. I bought all the parts online and now my computer is running beautifully and smoothly. Every time my friends need computer help they come to me. I can also do installations of RAM, hard drives, cd-roms, etc.. for a much lower price than most stores would charge.
  13. The Metro has raised its prices! The 28th of June which was yesterday, was the first business day where we could see if the prices had any effect on the amount of people using the Metro. According to the Metro department, there were 20,000 less riders!! Do the prices have any effects on you? Will you take the Metro less and find some other means of transportation?
  14. Today, June 29, another bank was robbed by three or four heavily armed men at the northwest bank intersecting Conneticut and Nebraska avenues. Authorities say that they believe this robbery is connected to a string of robberies that have occurred throughout the DC metro area over the past several months. The men are usually heavily armed and are very quick in getting away with as much money as they can get. They usually have a few getaway cars which they burn or blow up and get in another car. This seems almost like a movie (HEAT anyone?). The police is offering a $50,000 reward to anyone that can give a tip leading to the arrest of these robbers. Here is a picture from NBC: Anyone with a tip should call (202) 278-2000 (FBI) (202) 727-9099 (Police)
  15. It was announced earlier today that a United States marine became a hostage of a terrorist group. The marine was said to have been lured out somehow and captured by the terrorist group. The terrorists are asking that prisoners be released in order to ensure the life of the marine. Please show your support and give your prayers to the marine currently being held by these ruthless terrorists.
