“Houston native and famed country singer Kenny Rogers was signed to serve as the official mascot at all Gamblers home games due to his being known as “The Gambler.” The original contract called for Rogers to sing during each half time show, but he pulled out of the deal after the Houston Sports Authority refused to allow him to open a Kenny Rogers Roasters franchise in the Astrodome.(“Rogers Folds’em and Walks Away” by Neil Holhfeld, Houston Chronicle, November 18, 1983.)”—Houston Gamblers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“As for Lohan’s status as a “silver screen siren,” well … her last starring vehicle was in 2009 with “Labor Pains,” a movie that wasn’t released in the United States but did gross some $4,800 in Lebanon; $65,432 in the United Arab Emirates; $129,000 in Peru; and more than $600,000 in Mexico.”—Lohan’s Playboy shoot can’t put her in Marilyn Monroe’s class
One in 10 children ages 10 to 17 has used a cellphone to send or receive sexually suggestive images, but only 1 in 100 has sent images considered graphic enough to violate child pornography laws, a new study found.
Rolando McClain has been arrested by the Decatur Police Department in connection with an assault which occurred late Wednesday night. The victim in the assault reported that he had been at a residence on Skyview St. SW in Decatur when he got into a fight with another individual, identified as Jarodiuas Willingham. During the fight, the victim sustained injuries to his head and face. He was bleeding from the nose and mouth when speaking to the responding officers. The victim told officers that following the fight, he crawled to his car. He said that when he reached his car, Rolando McClain produced a pistol and aimed it at him. He said that while he was still on the ground, McClain walked over to him and put the gun to his head. The victim reported that he begged McClain not to shoot him and that McClain took the gun away from his head, held it next to his ear and fired it. Even though the initial report was of “shots” fired, investigators believe this was the only gunshot fired.
"The thing about the game is, I can’t stand just sitting around and waiting for something to happen. I probably have the most miles ran of anybody in the game because I’m always on the move looking for someone to shoot. We play Team Deathmatch more than anything, and my teammates get mad at me because I’ll get a few deaths running into the action, but like I said, I can’t stand sitting back and waiting for the action to come to me. I want to be on the attack."
And while McClain stars in “Madden 12,” that’s one game he never actually plays. “As far as the sports games, I suck at them,” he says with a laugh. “I stick to the games I’m good at, like the shooting games.”
Says McClain: In ‘Halo,’ you might empty your whole clip into a guy and he might not die. In ‘Call of Duty,’ you shoot a guy and he’s going down. It’s not just aliens running around and doing crazy things. ‘Call of Duty’ is more based on reality. It’s based on things you could actually see happen.
