Difference between Online Casino Games and Land-based Casino Games

Posted on April 09, 2018 by Cathy Carter

online-gamesThere’s no doubt that casinos are fun. But how often do you get to go to a casino? Unless you’re filthy rich and you live somewhere near a casino, you don’t go to a casino every now and then. For most of the people it’s like a birthday thing or an anniversary thing and for some people who do not have any casinos in their country it’s a rare international holiday thing. This is where online casino games are different. You can play online casino games from wherever you are and whenever you want. You can lie down on your bed in your sweatpants and sip on some cola while gambling for some good money.

Online casino games have an edge over land-based casino games because of many reasons including convenience, lower rake, and the fact that you get to play a lot of games and you get to play all the time if you want to; literally every day if you love online casino games. You can take down notes while you’re playing online casino games to track your opponents’ movements and patterns which you really cannot do when you’re playing in a real casino. You win or lose money in haste and online casino games give you the time to think and plan things even though you cannot really plan the entire thing. Read the rest of this entry →

44 Years Ago: Number 44 Became Number 1

Hank Aaron being celebrated after hitting career home run number 715 on April 8, 1974

It was 44 years ago today, April 8, 1974, that Hank Aaron, wearing number 44 for the Atlanta Braves, broke the seemingly unbreakable home run record of Babe Ruth with his 715th career home run.

In the decades since, the home run in baseball has lost some of its individual luster as juiced balls, juiced bats and juiced people (not to mention shrunken ballparks) have made the home run a much more common occurrence than in past generations.

However, that “cheapening” of the home run has in some ways elevated the realization of just how amazing it was for Aaron to amass more than 700 home runs despite playing much of his career during a time when baseball wasn’t geared to make it easier to hit home runs.

Few players have displayed the long-term consistency of greatness that Aaron compiled during his career. From 1955 through 1973 (19 years), he finished in the top 17 in the National League MVP voting every year, including 13 times in the top 10 and winning the award in 1957.

He led the National League in home runs four times and blasted 40 or more home runs in a season eight times. He hit a career-high 47 at the age of 37 in 1971 and two years later hit 40 home runs in just 120 games.

While his total of 755 career home runs has technically been passed, Aaron is still recognized by many as the Home Run King. His 2,297 career RBIs and 6,856 total bases are still the highest totals in Major League history. Not to mention, he finished his career with 3,771 career hits and a .305 career batting average.

In celebration of the 44th anniversary of his record-setting home run, check out videos of that blast as well as Aaron’s career.

Top Tips for Raising Your Sports Club

Posted on April 05, 2018 by Alec Neufeld

shoesNow that spring is in the air; you may be wanting to consider new and exciting ways to attract fresh talent to your sports club. If you live in an area where there are a variety of clubs or organizations for people to join, then it can be tough competing against larger clubs – in particular, if you are just starting out or need to take on a particular demographic for your teams. It’s easy to raise your team headcount if you know how, just as on the field it will take grit, determination, and consistency to ensure that you reach your goals and have a winning season.

Remember, that to attract new talent for your teams you will need to make sure that any marketing campaign efforts that you make remain on the up over time. You cannot expect to get results immediately either, as it may take time for your efforts to be noticed. When it comes to raising your sports club profile, then word of mouth is not enough, you will need to explore merchandising, digital outlets and even print publications to make sure that you can continue to grow and expand your club.

Create your own merchandise

You don’t have to be on a team to enjoy and want to wear merchandising, in fact, this is a quick and easy way to raise your club profile and make a fashion statement at the same time. If you are looking to create your team merchandising from scratch, then you will need to consider a range of factors such as your colors and even if you want your beloved club mascot to feature on any jerseys or sweaters that you make. Once you’ve made this all-important decision, then you can start to enjoy yourself and have some fun with your merchandising. You could ask your supporters what kind of merchandise that they would buy, or maybe get them to provide feedback about the kind of merchandise that they already own but feel would be both successful and practical. From investing in foam hands to making your own team pins or even water bottles and Frisbees, be sure to consult your team players and any members of your club executive committee before splashing the cash. If you are on a budget, then creating your own pins such as on this website is the ideal way to boost your team profile. Read the rest of this entry →

      Mike Gminski

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was a star big man who achieved great success at Camden Indoor Stadium in the era before Coach K and the One-and-Done big men became the norm at Duke University.

      Much like recent Duke big men Marvin Bagley III, Jayson Tatum and Jahlil Okafor, Mike Gminski made an immediate impact for the Blue Devils. However, because he played 40 years earlier at a time when few players left college early, Gminski spent four years racking up stats and success in Durham.
