Denny McLain’s 31 victories untouchable in today’s game?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Denny McLainIn 1968, Denny McLain won 31 games for the Detroit Tigers during a World Championship season. His 31-victory total has not been touched by any pitcher in baseball since. Detroit’s four-man pitching rotation gave them more opportunities than today’s teams to field higher-quality pitchers throughout the season, and it paid off by the end. Today, with less than three weeks left in the season, we have yet to see a pitcher win 20 games.

Pete Rose to be honored by Cincinnati Reds for 25th anniversary

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Pete RosePete Rose, baseball’s infamous gambler, still is not – and may never be – in the MLB Hall of Fame. But the former Cincinnati Reds player and manager will be honored by his former club for the 25th anniversary of his breaking Ty Cobb’s all-time career hits total. The Reds received permission from MLB Commissioner Bud Selig to honor the disgraced hitter for just the second time since being banned in 1989. Rose missed out on the Reds honoring of the 1975 World Series champions in 2000 as well as the old-timers softball game commemorating the closing of Cinergy Field in 2002.

Cleopatra for iPhone and iPod touch Review

Posted by Brandon Gribin Categories: Games, New Apps, Reviews, $1.99,

Cleopatra iPhone iPod touch reviewAs I see it, there are three types of slots players:

  • People who sit for hours on end at a single machine
  • People who pull on a machine once, hoping for a lucky spin, as they stroll by
  • People who refuse to touch a machine (they just don’t know they’re slot players yet)

Cleopatra is the perfect and game for the first type of slots player. And possibly a fun diversion for the other two types of players.

IGT, International Game Technology - a slot machine manufacturer, recently released Cleopatra on the iPhone and iPod touch. The app is a portable version of the video slot game that’s in casinos all over the world. The iPhone and iPod touch version is a solid rendition and should be up your alley if you’re looking for a slots game.

Teenager Steals to Play Online Casinos

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Misc. Tech,

Online CasinoA 16 year-old private school student wanted to play online casino games, so he opened an account under an adult’s name. According to police records, the Japanese boy bought an ID and password of a Web bank account for ¥17,000 from a housewife after soliciting on an Internet bulletin board. In July, the student had registered to play with his mom’s credit card but ended up with about ¥1.3 million in debts. What’s scary here is not only did he manage to amass the debt, but that he could steal both his mom’s ID and acquire a Web bank account as a minor.

Dean Browski Picks for Monday Night Football

Posted by Dean Browski Categories: NFL,

I personally believe that NFC East battles are the best in the NFL and anyone out there will be hard pressed to convince me otherwise.  The Cowboy cheerleaders are still hot and these two teams tonight still hate each other.  I made the preseason prediction that the Eagles were going to win the NFC East and they did nothing last week to make me want to turn back from that prediction.

Preparing for NFL Week 2 - Dean Browski

Posted by Dean Browski Categories: NFL,

I picked 9 of 16 winners in NFL Week 1.  Not a great weekend, but also not a bad start.  My Early Week Games proved reliable with the exception of the Jaguars and the Texans.  The Carolina Panthers were my highlight of the weekend, and again this week they make the Early Week Board.

Sweet Carolina Tuckus

I expected the Panthers to be a 7-point favorite at home against the Chicago Bears.  The Opening Line is Panthers -3.  I put a lot more value in the Panthers win over the Chargers than I do the Bears win over the Colts . . . I say that with all due respect to the Bears.  To further raise my curiosity, the fine users of ESPN.com have the Bears as 1-point favorites?!?!  Huh?  I will be taking the Panthers -3, a great value.  The Washington Redskins went from -1 to +1 at home against the New Orleans Saints.  This game intrigues me, and I think I like the Redskins at first blush.  This line is worth keeping an eye on.  The Houston Texans are 4.5-point favorites at home against the Baltimore Ravens, and there is a chance the line may come down.  I like the Texans at -4.5, if any more points come off that line there is value with the Texans.

Those are just some thoughts from early in the week.  All of Dean Browski’s NFL Week 2 Picks will be posted on Friday.
