BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | 10 things that make you forward e-mails
BBC News – Jan 19, 2005
If they’re not funny, then they have to be topical or somehow “shocking, clever, strange or surprising”. Topical ones are usually homemade, simply because professionally made e-mails take longer to produce. A good example was David Beckham taking tips from Jonny Wilkinson on how to kick the ball over the bar, says Pete Brown. “There was a thought bubble over Beckham’s head which registered simply ‘ball… ” It worked well after England lost to Portugal in Euro 2004 – Beckham having missed a crucial penalty – because it was done quickly, he says. E-mails must be a bit risky to be shocking or funny, says Chris Hassell of creative agency DS. Emotion, which makes viral e-mails for advertisers. Some advertisers will want to have a viral e-mail for people to send round as part of their campaigns, he says, but rein it back too much and “it ends up being just like a TV advert – and who wants to send that round?”.

Rooney ends Exeter’s dream | FA Cup | Football | Sport | Telegraph – Jan 19, 2005
“We’re going to win 2-1,” came the cry from Devoted of Devon. “Dodgy keeper,” they chanted at Tim Howard. United, though, did not look content with their slim lead. Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs were returning from injury and looked keen to impose their respective talents on proceedings. Ronaldo was a constant threat, running at Scott Hiley time and again. Yet the veteran right-back, a former Manchester City player, stood firm, putting put in some crucial saving tackles just when it appeared Ronaldo was going to tear Exeter apart again. One deft, 24th-minute turn by Hiley to bemuse one of the stars of Euro 2004 will be cherished for many a year in the West Country… Ronaldo was a constant threat, running at Scott Hiley time and again.

One deft, 24th-minute turn by Hiley to bemuse one of the stars of Euro 2004 will be cherished for many a year in the West Country. Still United menaced, Jones requiring all his agility to block a meaty drive from Rooney, who was sporting gloves but not his usual swagger. United were enjoying plenty of possession, primarily because Exeter kept giving the ball away. Gradually, the defiance flowing down from the stands began seeping through the veins of Inglethorpe’s players. Exeter began to raid forward, with some of their most promising moments being sculpted by the left foot of Alex Jeannin.

Bolton’s foreign legion rise up to frustrate Wenger again – Jan 17, 2005
Bolton set out their stall to stifle Arsenal’s superior individual skill and they showed great determination to make that plan work, going ahead with a rare headed goal by Stelios, a hero of Greece’s surprise Euro 2004 success, and then grimly protecting their hard-earned advantage. The result left Bolton manager Sam Allardyce celebrating an excellent tactical victory which he hopes will provide the springboard for a finishing flourish similar to last year’s when they went within a whisker of European qualification. In contrast, the result left Wenger sifting through the wreckage of an inadequate display for crumbs of comfort. He pointed out that this setback comes at a much earlier stage of the programme than in 2003, when a late Martin Keown own goal handed the title initiative to Manchester United, but he conceded: “Chelsea don’t look vulner-able at the moment. “At the moment, though, I don’t feel we have to worry about Chelsea… Wenger reflected: “I don’t know how damaging this result will be. It’s disappointing because we were in the situation where we had to win the game but we were not clinical enough. I feel we lacked determined effort in the final third and did not show a great security in our defending. “That lack of security was exposed when Bolton made the decisive strike just before half-time, their outstanding performer El Hadji Diouf getting the better of England’s Sol Campbell to deliver a teasing cross which was confidently converted by Stelios as Manuel Almunia flapped in a vain attempt to intercept it. More uncertainty at the back involving the experienced Campbell and the young goalkeeper almost let in Kevin Nolan for a bizarre second, while Gary Speed, Bolton’s veteran midfielder, almost capitalised on another unconvincing attempt to gather by Almunia. In comparison Jussi Jaaskelainen, in the Bolton goal, gave a textbook performance in dealing impressively with what little threat Arsenal posed to him. The Finnish international’s most worrying moment came when Robin van Persie burst through.

He also appears to get wound up too easily by the physical aspect of the English game and the failure of the officials to give him enough protection. Despite these flaws, the 19-year-old remains a class act and after picking up possession on the left flank, he darted inside, then continued his run to collect Scholes’ return pass and drive a shot into the far corner with such ease that it begged the question why it was only his second goal of the campaign. Ronaldo will not remember his next involvement with affection though as Hiley produced some trickery of his own, tapping through the Euro 2004 finalist’s legs to raucous applause from the home fans. Little had been seen of Exeter as an attacking force up to then but that all changed when Alex Jeannin delivered the first of what was to be half a dozen superb crosses from the left flank. His initial effort caught Tim Howard by surprise and the American’s hesitation allowed Steve Flack to rise above him and nod a decent opportunity wide. Flack’s strike partner Sean Devine got on the end of Jeannin’s next effort in first half stoppage time but couldn’t keep his volley on target. In between those two chances, Rooney had earned himself a lecture from referee Phil Dowd for a spiteful ankle tap on Ampadu but 11 minutes after the re-start, the teenager should really have put the game beyond Exeter’s reach.

Rangers set to sign Greece defender
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Jan 18, 2005
A spokesman for Panathinaikos refused to comment on reports, only saying that the player had contacts with Rangers as well as two English Premiership clubs, bitter south coast rivals Portsmouth and Southampton. Kirgiakos, who has played nine times for the Greek national team but due to an injury did not play in Euro 2004 won by Greece, scored two goals in Panathinaikos’ 5-1 win on Sunday against OFI Crete. Nigel Quashie joined Southampton for £2. 1 million from Portsmouth yesterday, following Harry Redknapp, the manager, and most of his backroom staff, who made the same trip along the M27 last month. The Scotland midfield player signed a 3½-year contract. “He will bring terrific qualities,” Redknapp said.

SOCCER: United head to Hong Kong
U.TV – Jan 17, 2005
The Red Devils, who are due to confirm a match in China tomorrow as part of their trip, are also expected to visit Japan as part of Sir Alex Ferguson`s build-up to the 2005-6 campaign. United have spent the past two summers in the United States, although even Ferguson admitted their most recent visit was a mistake as he was forced to rush senior players such as Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers back into action to appease supporters denied the opportunity of seeing many of the club`s big names who had played in Euro 2004.

Returning to exercise too soon could have a number of negative effects. Aside from the return of concussion symptoms, early return to play may put a person at risk of an additional concussion. According to the March/April 2013 “Sports Health,” 91.7 percent of repeat concussions among college football players occur within 10 days of the first concussion. This may be because of slowed reaction time and other thinking problems that happen with a concussion, which may not be cheap jerseys evident without specialized testing. Rarely a person who sustains a second minor traumatic brain injury will experience something called “second impact syndrome.” This is a controversial disorder more commonly found in young children with very few cases known, in which someone with a mild concussion experiences another mild concussion, often immediately replica oakleys after or within weeks, and has severe and fatal brain swelling. This disorder is still being studied by researchers.In the Olde Country, children’s literature was all about rape, mutilation, and cannibalism, to let the little buggers know that there were worse things in the world than having to birth sheep and eat cold stew for dinner. But modern kids’ stories focus more on instilling positive social values, like sharing and acceptance. However, when you look closely at some examples of modern children’s literature, you’ll discover that they’re exactly as insane and emotionally damaging as any haunted German fairy tale. The only difference is that they’re slightly more subtle about it.14. I don’t believe in sports jinxes, particularly those that are based or blamed on an announcer, like talking about a no hitter in progress or something. But when Greg Gumbel mentioned that there were nine extra point misses in today’s early games right before Stephen Gostkowski made it 10, I don’t think many of us were especially surprised, though we might have muttered, “Thanks for bringing it up, Gumbel, you junior varsity Bryant.”In high school football, it’s been illegal to hit this way for years. But unlike in the pros, I’ve hardly ever seen it called in a game. Cheap Oakleys Sale Still, Nic McMaster, coach at Castro Valley High School in the San Francisco Bay area where I’m a defensive end tries to teach us better.Sure, given the massive swelling that would result from thousands of stings could actually make it larger, but that’s sort of like gouging your eyes out so you don’t have to wear glasses anymore. Basically, cheap oakleys outlet both partners are Cheap Jerseys facing each other while the girl presses her feet against the guy’s chest, sort of like a crablegged dropkick only with more vaginal penetration.
