Super Bowl Long Shots - Part 1

Written by Leo Mendelsohn

Most of you know there have been seven teams to win back to back Super Bowls but never three in a row.

But did you know thatrepparttar year afterrepparttar 143655 back to back run an AFC team wonrepparttar 143656 Super Bowlrepparttar 143657 following yearrepparttar 143658 first 4 times andrepparttar 143659 NFC has beenrepparttar 143660 victorrepparttar 143661 past 3 times. Doesrepparttar 143662 NFC producerepparttar 143663 next Super Bowl winner to completerepparttar 143664 trend?

Staying withrepparttar 143665 trend thatrepparttar 143666 NFC will producerepparttar 143667 next Super Bowl Champion, perhapsrepparttar 143668 Buccaneers at 35 to 1 might be worthrepparttar 143669 chance to come through. No, we are not big Tampa Fans but we like Gruden as a coach and think he might be ready for another run.

John Gruden did wonders for Rich Gannon and I think Brian Griese will start to show similar results this year. Clayton is a great young wide receiver andrepparttar 143670 young stud running back Williams will make Florida fans forget about repparttar 143671 other Williams. Also look out for Larry Brackins at wide receiver; he

What's the word on the Stinger jump/break pool cue?

Written by Philip Downen

The recently released Stinger by Jerico Cues is distributed byrepparttar National Billiard Academy and manufactured inrepparttar 143572 USA by Jerry Powers of Jerico Cues. It is claimed byrepparttar 143573 aforementioned distributor that it is "The World's Greatest JumpBreak Cue," and has been a recent hot topic inrepparttar 143574 industry by both consumers, as well as professional players.

What arerepparttar 143575 selling points ofrepparttar 143576 stinger? 1) The stinger has two quick-release joints, which can be considered extraordinarily convenient for a jumpbreak cue since you've already got an extra joint that you'll need to fool around with occasionally when making your jump shots. Time efficiency... That's what I'm talking about. Aside from that, who wants to get carpal tunnel while playing pool?

2) It comes in a variety of different exotic woods: bocote, cocobolo, purpleheart, and ebony. The Stinger can also come at a little lower price as a "sneaky pete" version that makes use of maple wood. I happen to findrepparttar 143577 exotic woods very appealing. Many jump/breaks I've seen tend to be a little plain looking, but withrepparttar 143578 fabulous finish on these cuesrepparttar 143579 wood really looks good. Which brings me to my next point...repparttar 143580 finish.

3) Jerry at Jerico Cues has developed quite an impressive finish that looks fabulous AND protects and sealsrepparttar 143581 wood fromrepparttar 143582 effects of moisture and dirt. It seals to a depth of about a millimeter overrepparttar 143583 whole cue, allowing it to have a great glossy look to it.

4) It is currently being used by multiple pro players aroundrepparttar 143584 world including: Mike Massey, Kid Delicious, Tony Robles, Jennifer Barretta, Ronnie Wiseman, Chris Lynch, Edwardo Roldan, Bill Meima (2004 World Jumpshot Champion), Sarah Ellerby, Randy Whitehead, Billy Banks, and Lynette Horsburgh (UK Snooker Champion).
