At Euro 12, there exist those who live off the misery of others. Those that live in theshadows, omnipresent, unrelenting and void of remorse. They are quick to dispossess, quick to counter and quick to strike. This is the story of those who stalk the pitches of Poland-Ukraine.

my appreciation for the art form started on a trip to new york city years ago. i couldn’t help but remark those around clothed in tattoos, existing as an expression of fashion, art and in particular themselves. no matter where i went, there they were: small, large, sleeves, full colour, black; shattering my traditionally held belief that this was not art but a representation of malfeasance. no longer did i fear them, i was intrigued and drawn.
The wild success of “Borat” hasn’t helped his country’s public image, Mr. Kelimbetov said. Just last month the parody anthem from the Borat movie, which commends for its high-quality potassium exports and having the second cleanest prostitutes in the region was played, in error, at the Amir of Kuwait International Shooting Grand Prix at which Kazakh athletes participated.
The mix-up was apparently the result of the wrong song being downloaded from the Internet. When the Kazakh athletes complained, the ceremony was re-staged. But the incident highlighted how Kazakhstan still finds itself victim to parody.

Did you know:
In track, he (rgiii) broke state records for the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles. He ran the 110-meter hurdles in 13.55 seconds, and the 300-meter hurdles in 35.33 seconds. The 300-hurdles time was one-hundredth of a second short of breaking the national high school record. He was also a gold medalist in the 110 and 400-meter hurdles on the AAU track and field circuit. He sprinted 13.46 in the 110-meter hurdles and 49.56 in the 400-meter hurdles as a junior in high school. In 2007, as a junior, he was rated the No. 1 high school 400-meter immediate hurdler in the country, and was tied at No. 1 for the 110-meter sprint hurdler in the nation. Also as a junior, he received the Gatorade Texas Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year award. And he was named to USA Today′s 2007 All-USA Track and Field team. (from wikipedia)
I knew that he was a track guy and that he did very well in it growing up…. But this is absurd. Something tells me that the other top qb prospect (who is also a tall cracker) doesn’t quite possess the same type of athleticism. I recommend you watch the combine 40yard dash videos of the two of them…. Its crazy how well RGIII runs.
Fun Fact: While at Baylor U, Robert Griffin III was protected on the weak side by Top O-Line prospect Robert Griffin, aptly nicknamed RG2
it has been awhile, as new tracks are hard to find. there is a tendency to stick with the reliable, the constant. these sounds reverberate in all facets of life, changing the beat of your drummer can be hard, even when it is a double click of the mic. however difficult it may be, new relationships must, and continue, to be fostered.

Last week, one of my close friends made the observation that Hintonburg may be approaching its/her threshold for precious hipsterness. The subject line of her email was “Hintonburg Twee”.
The tipping point for her was the impending arrival of Merry Dairy—a new homemade ice cream joint offering frozen custard—a Coney Island original. It’s not that the girl doesn’t like ice cream—she’s just feeling slightly suffocated by the plethora of seemingly over-thought, affected indie restos. Never mind the potential for a growing obesity epidemic in Hintonburg — it’s the idea of these places that’s giving her pause:
i’m an anti-popular girl. all this hipsterism in ottawa is making me dangerously close to adopting my teenage punk again.
Right away, I knew where she was coming from but I just moved here from Burlington—the antithesis of overly hip—so I’m still a bit of a kid in a candy shop here in…
