Togel Gambling ships hit troubled waters

Among possible losers if the slots referendum passes are gaming-boat operators. At least one already is fighting to survive.

 

Moe Noonan, 83-year-old Hollywood resident and hard-core gambler, boards a gaming ship five days a week for the pleasure of sitting at a blackjack table for a few hours.

 

Noonan, though, hates taking an hourlong boat trip to international waters before he’s able to gamble.

 

”It’s a pain,” he barked the other day before sailing on the St. Tropez in Port Everglades. “At least at a casino, after two hours I can go. I can’t drive home from the boat. I’ve got to stay there.”

 

Gambling boats could be big losers if residents in Miami-Dade and Broward vote March 8 in favor of permitting slot machines at seven racetracks and jai-alai frontons.

 

Noonan says he’s voting for it. The gambling cruise is a five-hour or more commitment. At a racetrack or fronton, he could come and go as he pleases.

 

He figures if if slots are approved it’s only a matter of time before blackjack tables show up alongside the slots.

 

South Florida’s ”cruise to nowhere” businesses are already sailing in choppy financial seas. In the past year, the boats were battered by an unprecedented hurricane season, paid higher fuel costs and were dealt a formidable rival in the $410 million Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.

 

Three South Florida Togel gaming ships reported a drop-off in customers, including one that lost more than a third of its business.

 

St. Tropez Casino Cruises this month became the latest in a procession of casino-boat operators that have sought shelter from creditors by filing for bankruptcy protection. Some see the threat from slots as enough to sink the entire industry in South Florida.

 

The bankruptcies indicate that the cruise boats are often a marginal business, said Bob Sturges, president of Coral Gables-based Sturges Hospitality Consulting. He is a consultant to Flagler Dog Track — one of the beneficiaries if voters approve slots — and advised Dania Beach-based SunCruz Casinos’ unsecured creditors …

Bola88 Dumb and Dumber

 

 

Years ago I was once talked into writing a column that offered advice about which players to play with and which ones to avoid. You know, really hilarious illustrations, such as, “Try to play against plumbers because they have leaks in their game,” or, “Avoid stunt pilots because they like to slow-roll you.” These were so painful to read that I was ashamed of myself — but not too ashamed to then do a second column when my fans sent in additional examples.

 

These grade-school level attempts at humor were so revoltingly stupid that they made my zaniest Big Denny yarns by comparison seem as urbane and sophisticated as anything appearing in New Yorker or Town and Country magazine. So, I gave my solemn promise that I would never again inflict such nonsense on my readers.

 

Unfortunately, some of my fans continued to provide me with more ideas, and I hate to reject any material that’s given to me free of charge. More important, even I have to sometimes scrape the bottom of the barrel to come up with column ideas every two weeks. Anyway, I recently came across some scraps of paper on which I had jotted down some poker-related occupation ideas that had been submitted to me and that I had hidden away and promptly forgotten about. I’m not sure now which of my fans submitted which ideas, but I know that a faithful fan of mine by the name of Don Bosh dreamed up some of them, which resulted in my blocking any more e-mails from him. Anyway, with apologies in advance, here goes.

 

My first “Dumb and Dumber” occupational caution is to be leery of playing Bola88 with anyone who is a baseball outfielder by profession. Why? Because baseball outfielders are extremely good at catching. See what I mean? This isn’t even grade school, this is kindergarten humor. Well, I don’t know how many readers I’ve lost at this point, but let’s plow on.

 

Try not to play with draftsmen. That’s because they’re good at making straight draws. Even …

Blatter the clown Togel Hongkong prince of football

 

 

Blatter.Sepp Blatter’s comments to a Brazilian magazine prove once and for all he is not fit to run football.

 

“We have bad losers in FIFA,” the FIFA President told Estado de Sao Paolo. “This animosity comes from England,” he went on. “Interesting is the timing of the accusations. It was just around the time when they·failed to win host rights to the 2018 World Cup…All this has been an act of revenge for having lost the FIFA Presidency in 1974 to Joao Havelange. Still, they cannot accept that they no longer control FIFA. Since they Togel Hongkong cannot regain the Presidency, they decided they would try to destroy it.”

 

The words of a mad conspiracy theorist. The surge in reports of FIFA corruption came it is true around last year’s World Cup vote but that was because both 2018 (Russia) and 2022 (Qatar) seemed highly suspicious choices to any fair-minded watcher.

 

How then to explain the head of the German F.A. and Karl-Heinz Rummenige calling for Blatter’s head recently? The fact is England has the most active investigative journalism and endemic FIFA corruption is something Blatter has presided over and allowed to fester.

 

The Football Association and the British media has no desire other than a trustworthy governing body for the sport it invented. Under Blatter, the FIFA Ex.Co. has looked like an FBI’s most wanted list of felons: Warner, Texeira, Leoz, Bin-Hammam, Blazer (pic) and Grondona for starters.

 

If Blatter really believes in transparency and honest management, let him release the judicial verdict on the ISL collapse which languishes in a courthouse in Zug, Switzerland.

 

The F.A. however should look themselves in the mirror for shamefully u-turning to back Blatter in his initial bid for the Presidency, betraying the support of the honest Swede Lennart Johansson. How foolish do they appear now that deep anti-English feeling pervades FIFA corridors.

 

Recent stirrings from Germany suggest that is the country from which a successful anti-Blatter movement should stem.

51 Togel Singapore and counting

 

 

51 and counting.As if FIFA were not in enough hot water already over goal-line incidents.

 

In an interview with Germany’s Focus magazine, President Sepp Blatter made an extraordinary admission that football’s governing body was considering abolishing draws and extra-time in World Cup finals matches.

 

According to Blatter’s admission, penalty shoot-outs could replace ties in the group games, while, mirabile dictu, the ‘golden goal’ could make a return to the knock-out stages in order to spice up extra-time before another shoot-out, if necessary.

 

What has prompted this sudden revelation of another potential volte-face, following FIFA’s u-turn on technology last week?

 

Blatter is presumably reacting to the meagre 2.27 goals-per-game average from the 2010 World Cup, the second-lowest on record, narrowly beating Italia ’90’s 2.21 haul.

 

The opening round of two games per group yielded only 1.6 goals on average, with nothing beyond Germany’s 4-0 trouncing of Australia to write home about Togel Singapore. The tournament was dull in footballing terms, with the exception of Germany’s brief but fantastic foray to the semi-finals, which yielded a rich harvest of breakaway goals and sent the lumbering old battleships of England and Argentina spiraling to the bottom with aplomb.World Cup.

But a resoundingly negative final littered with bookings, gamesmanship and brutal tackles put an unhappy seal on what should have been a carnival of football. At the climax of Sepp’s big show, the watching world was left unhappy and even the winners Spain took their crown having netted fewer times (eight in seven games) than any previous champions. Blatter felt responsible.

 

South Africa after all was the President’s baby from the moment he first garnered African votes to win the top job in football with the promise of a World Cup hosting in return. Perhaps he is over-reacting to the bad impression the finals left on the field, or indeed looking to be a pro-active president as a re-election looms in 2011, although his throne looks safe.

Three-way race for the J. Togel Hongkong League title

 

 

And then there were three. Two familiar contenders, one plucky outsider and four league games are all that stand between Kashiwa Reysol, Gamba Osaka, Nagoya Grampus and the J. League title.

 

Autumn is especially beautiful across the Kantō Plain, when the deciduous leaves fall and a mellow sunlight light frames the back streets and alleys of one of the world’s most populous regions. That’s true even in the gritty industrial Chiba town of Kashiwa, where the locals are hoping their promoted upstarts can win Togel Hongkong back to back championships.

 

Kashiwa Reysol coasted through J2 last season, holding off the challenge of Ventforet Kofu to win the second division by ten points. At the helm was grizzled Brazilian coach Nelsinho, whose association with Japanese football is so lengthy his first club Verdy was still based in Kawasaki. The much-travelled tactician won the J. League with Verdy and later took over at the club formerly known as Nagoya Grampus Eight, before embarking on a peripatetic waltz around his native Brazil.

 

He’s back in the J. League now and Nelsinho’s knowledge of Brazilian has proved especially useful in the realm of player recruitment. In 2010 he signed Leandro Domingues from Bahia club Vitoria and watched contentedly as the playmaker steered the Sun Kings to the second tier title. This year he drafted in veteran Jorge Wagner from Sao Paulo and the versatile attacking talent has produced a stellar campaign. Add to that the goals of strikers Junya Tanaka and Hideaki Kitajima and it’s no surprise Kashiwa’s sheer attacking strength has propelled them to the top of the table.

 

Standing in Kashiwa’s way are defending champions Nagoya Grampus. The Aichi side broke their long trophy drought by winning the J. League for the first time last season, employing the not-so-novel tactic of simply signing the best players from rival teams.

 

Former Urawa Reds talisman Marcus Tulio Tanaka and ex-Yokohama F. Marinos defender Hayuma Tanaka were joined this season by one-time Shimizu S-Pulse star Jungo Fujimoto and ex-Vissel Kobe speedster Kensuke Nagai – widely regarded as one …

Veliki Keluaran HK svjetski derbiji: Brazil – Italija

 

 

U jednoj od rijetkih prijateljskih utakmica, Brazil je prošle veljače svladao Italiju u Londonu s 2:0

 

Brazil i Italija, najtrofejniji nogometne nacije, osvojile su točno pola svih svjetskih prvenstava

 

Priča o suparništvu dvije najuspješnije nacije u povijesti nogometa proteže se još od vremena koje ima mitske značajke. Nadmetanje Italije i Brazila u velikoj se mjeri podudara s povijesti Svjetskih prvenstava. Njihov prvi susret na Mundialima datira iz 1938., a ukupno su se na svjetskim smotrama susreli pet puta, uglavnom odlučujući prvaka.

 

Ljubitelji nogometa iz novijeg vremena, a pod time Keluaran HK mislimo na zadnja četiri desetljeća, Italiju zamišljaju kao utvrdu obrambenog nogometa, a Brazil kao predstavnike nogometne romantike, vječno okrenute prema protivničkim vratima i pružanju zadovoljstva gledateljima.

 

No, kad su se ove dvije nacije susrele na Svjetskom prvenstvu 1938. u Francuskoj, Italija je bila na vrhuncu moći, a njen je as Giuseppe Meazza ulijevao strah Brazilcima (i ostalima). Meazza, dvostruki svjetski prvak iz 1934. i 1938. i drugi najbolji strijelac u talijanskoj prvoj ligi s 274 gola. Brazil je u Francusku stigao kao silno nadarena momčad, predvođena topnikom Leonidasom, ali s malo izgleda protiv kraljeva nogometa. Polufinalni susret završio je s 2:1 za Talijane, koji su potom osvojili drugi naslov protiv Mađara. Trebale su proći 32 godine prije no što će opet ukrstiti koplja.

 

Kad su se idući puta susreli na svjetskoj pozornici, 1970. u Meksiku, uloge su bile uvelike izmijenjene. U međuvremenu, Italija više nije osvojila nijedan Mundial, tek jedno Europsko prvenstvo 1968. na svom terenu protiv Jugoslavije. Brazil se od 1950. do 1962. dvaput popeo na svjetski vrh, a jednom je ostao drugi. U Meksiku ga je četvrti puta zaredom vodio čovjek čija je slava nadmašila i Meazzinu: Edson Arantes do Nascimento, alias Pele. Čim su se ove dvije momčadi uvrstile u finale, Italija epskom pobjedom nad Njemačkom od 4:3, a Brazil znatno lakšim trijumfom nad Urugvajem od 3:1, znalo se da će prvi puta jedna reprezentacija skupiti tri naslova – i zaslužiti Zlatnu božicu Julesa Rimeta u trajno vlasništvo.

Ki Starts Keluaran HK Scottish Spell Well

 

 

The story of another South Korea star’s adventures in Europe started last weekend as Ki Sung-yong made a first appearance in the famous green-and-white hooped shirt of Celtic.

 

The 20 year-old played the full 90 minutes on Saturday as his new team drew 1-1 with Falkirk in the Scottish Premier League. It was a disappointing performance from the Bhoys but a promising debut from Ki who was impressed with his free-kick skills and was named Man of the Match.

 

After agreeing to join the famous Scottish club last summer, Ki, had to wait until the end of the year to join his new team as he played out the rest of the K-League season with FC Seoul. Now he is ready to help the 1967 European champions Keluaran HK recapture the Scottish title from Glasgow rivals Rangers.

 

Ki has already impressed off the pitch with his fluent English and pleased journalists, players and supporters alike by coming up with a more familiar first name. “I spent some time in Australia and there my friends called me David as it’s difficult for some to pronounce my name,” he told the local media upon arrival. “If that helps make it easier, it’s fine with me. Communication is so important if players are to be comfortable with each other.”

 

Those years spent in high school in Brisbane may have helped his English skills but life on the Gold Coast is a far cry from that in Glasgow. Ki got a taste of that in his first full week in the UK with severe snowstorms and cold weather bringing the country and soccer to a halt and delaying his debut for the club.

 

That wouldn’t have bothered him too much, Seoul is colder than Scotland in the winter months and the classy youngster has a perfect attitude to match his skills. Already a regular in the Korean team, Ki has been one of the hottest properties in Asia for the past two years or so since he broke into the ranks at FC Seoul. He quickly became …

My French is just Aplikasi Judi Online Shocking

 

 

The FA cup final is a great British tradition, like a one shot tennis rally or stitching up the Irish.

 

This year, the top two teams in the country will go head to head in the greatest exhibition since Lady Godiva whipped out her milk dispensers in a brave bid to flee Coventry on the back of one on the Van Nistelrooy clan.

 

Most bookmakers are treating this year’s showpiece as a ‘Wolverhampton brother and sister match’, they just can’t separate them.

 

For my money, Manchester United have a Aplikasi Judi Online definite edge. The Red Devils have looked hotter than a vindaloo-eating, three sweater-wearing, fever-riddled Anna Kournikova all season long; the 10/11 for United to lift the trophy is practically unmissable.

 

I refuse to shy away from the difficult questions. Why is it that Jose Mourinho can be arrested for harbouring a potentially dangerous dog, yet Lenny Henry roams the streets with impunity? There is no greater lover of dogs than Mourinho, with the possible exception of Park Ji-Sung. I find the 9/5 for a Manchester United win in 90 minutes completely barking.

 

Chelsea will have their supporters at 9/5, but the vibes emanating from the Bridge are far from positive. Uncertainty surrounds the future of Lampard, and John Terry’s contract talks break down more often than my old escort. I sometimes wish that Wayne Rooney had never given me her number.

 

Rooney, Ronaldo and Giggs are all match-winners on their day, but Paul Scholes holds the key to a United victory. Gattuso recently suggested that Scholes likes to take his little matter into his own hands; in fairness to Gattuso, it was an educated guess from the ginger evidence. The 14/1 for a Scholes opener is my best attempt at finding value in the first goalscorer market.

 

Chelsea’s injury crisis may well be a blessing in disguise. As Carvalho knows only too well, Wayne Rooney has previous for walking all over a Ballack. Correct score betting is always a tough nut to crack; I’ll take a small interest in …

Dunga and Diego to shape Agen Togel the next Battle of the Americas

 

 

 

Be it a clash in the World Cup finals or a domestic under-17 game, Argentina versus Brazil always gets the pulse racing. The two nations line up this weekend in the north of Argentina for a match which holds the key for the hosts making it to South Africa for next year’s World Cup.

 

The two proud countries have enjoyed contrasting fortunes ahead of this clasico. Dunga’s Brazil were crowned Confederations Cup champions a few months ago. Before heading off to South Africa the seleção picked up maximum points in two qualifiers. A 3-0 win over Peru in Porto Alegre was followed by a 4-0 demolition of Uruguay in Montevideo.

 

Diego Maradona was called to take up the reigns for Argentina after previous coach Alfio Basile endured a less than inspiring start to the country’s qualifying campaign.

 

In Diego’s first competitive match Venezuela were dispatched 4-0 in Buenos Aires but this early optimism was dashed with a crushing 6-1 defeat away in La Paz to Bolivia five days later. In the next round of games a nervous looking Argentina edged past Colombia with a single goal in River Plate’s El Monumental before another away defeat. This time a 2-0 reverse away to Ecuador in Quito.

 

With derbies all over the world the formbook goes out of the window and The Battle of the South Americas is no different. After all Brazil were unfancied in the 2007 Copa America but stunned Argentina with a 3-0 win.

As well as upsets these matches have been liberally peppered with all that is good, bad and plain ugly in the game of football.

 

In the first knock round of Italia 90 Argentina took on Brazil in Turin. The clasico coming earlier than expected due to Argentina’s poor showing in the group stage, including the holder’s defeat in the opening game in Cameroon. After the game it was alleged that the Argentine trainers gave the Brazilian Branco a bottle of water laced with tranquilisers while he was down injured.

FA Cup 4th Round: Charlton Win Pkv London Derby

 

 

Before a smaller than average crowd of 22,029, Charlton Athletic avoided becoming Leyton Orient’s second Premiership FA Cup scalp with a narrow 2-1 win at the Valley on Saturday.

 

The Addicks advance to the 5th Round came courtesy of a last-minute winner from Jay Bothroyd after Lee Steele had cancelled out a 7th minute opener from Jonathan Fortune.

 

The ‘O’s, a full sixty one places below Charlton in the Pkv pyramid at start of play, certainly did not disgrace themselves and although never looking like they would win the game, came within seconds of forcing a replay at Brisbane Road.

 

In the opening minutes the contrast in styles between the divisions soon became apparent, Orient announcing their visit with some meaty challenges and quick balls over the top characteristic of England’s lower leagues.

 

But for all the measured build up and superior movement of their Premiership hosts, the Os looked far from overawed, Shane Tudor getting a shot on target in the first minute and forcing a corner in the second.

 

What they and their 6000+ travelling fans (Orient’s average home gate is 4,500) surely did not want was to concede an early goal but they fell into that trap in the 7th minute.

 

Darren Ambrose far out on the right curled a free kick into the box where center back Jonathan Fortune, finding unaccustomed space between two defenders, stooped to nod past Glyn Garner in the Leyton Orient goal.

 

If the Os had an Achilles heel for the Addicks to exploit then it certainly looked to be in dealing with crosses.

 

After Fortune was granted time and space for his goal, Shaun Bartlett arrived scandalously unmarked in the box from another Ambrose center in the 17th minute, the South African guiding his header inches wide of the post.

 

Charlton were dealing with the Orient attack quite comfortably, Herman Hreidarsson looking particularly imperious in the air, but were far from fluid and rather error-strewn in midfield, Radostin Kishishev being a particular offender.

 

The home side threatened to double …
