Pay Per Post
2007-11-01 21:26:00
I started my blog about four months ago with the intent to report about the sports that I liked to watch. My brother, who is also a blogger, told me about the money he was making and the people he had met at payperpost . I went to the pay per post site and found that it is a very easy site to navigate and the information they give you is easy to understand. The staff at pay per post are very knowledgeable and very quick to act should you have a problem with anything on the site. All you have to do is register on the site and give them the information about the blog that you author. Once your blog has been approved the pay per post staff will show you a list posts that you can make for advertisers that have the same subject matter as your blog. They also have something called pay per post direct. With this the companies can contact you directly and negotiate the terms of the post that they want you to write for them.

2007-11-01 20:44:00
On the last day of March in 1997 Martin a Hingis became the world’s youngest female player to ever lead in the world rankings at the age of 16. Also in 1997 she won the Australian Open, Wimbledon, the US Open, and came within one match of winning the Grand Slam losing in the finals of the French Open. Now only 10 short years later with Hingis in her mid twenties she announced on Thursday that she was retiring from tennis amid accusations that she failed a cocaine test earlier this year at Wimbledon. Martina is currently ranked number 19 and had to hold back tears as she gave her statement. “I find this accusation so horrendous, so monstrous that I’ve decided to confront it head on by talking to the press,” she said. “I am frustrated and angry. I believe that I am absolutely 100 percent innocent.” Martina said through a statement made by her agent that she decided to go ahead and retire instead of spending years fighting the case against her.

2007-10-31 21:42:00
Jimmie Johnson started Sunday’s race in Atlanta 53 points behind his Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon for the NEXTEL Cup Championship. At the end of the day however, because of a late race pit gamble and a wild wreck at the finish, Jimmie won the race and now finds himself only 9 points out of the lead. Jimmie was running fifth when a caution came out on lap number 318 of the scheduled 325 laps. His crew chief, Jack Knaus, elected to only take two tires during the caution and Johnnson jumped to second behind Denny Hamlin. When racing resumed on lap 323 Hamlin ran out of gas and Martin Truex Jr. slammed into the back of him bringing out yet another caution. This setup a green-white-checkered finish that would start on lap 328. In the first corner after the restart Dale Jr. lost a tire and collected Jammie McMurray in the wreckage. This wreck caused the race to finish under caution giving Johnson his eighth win of the season. With only three aces left and nine points separating Ji...

Falcons Want 16 Million From Vick
2007-10-04 21:07:00
The Atlanta Falco ns want a little more than 16 million of the 37 million dollars in bonuses they have already paid suspended quarterback Michael Vick . The case is supposed to be argued at a hearing on Thursday in front of NFL’s special master, University of Pennsylvania Law School professor Stephen Burbank. The Falcons contend that by signing the 10 -year 130 million dollar contract in 2004 Vick defrauded the team because he knew he was already in breach of that contract by running a dog-fighting ring. Vick’s lawyer is confident that he will not have to return any of the money and says the hearing wont last more than a day. The Falcons already plan to appeal the case if the decision is in Vick’s favor and have also filled a grievance with the non-injury grievance arbitrator. In that case they are seeking 22 million dollars again stating that Vick defrauded the team when he signed the December 2004 contract.

Wild Weekend in College Football
2007-10-01 20:35:00
It was not a good weekend to be at the top of the NCAA college football rankings. Half of the top ten teams lost and seven teams out the top thirteen lost. The first loss by a top ranked team came on Friday night when the University of South Florida beat number five West Virginia by a score of 21-13. This win vaulted USF to their highest ranking ever. The Bulls have only been in the top 25 for two weeks and have jumped this week to number 6. Auburn took care of business against Florida beating them by a score of  20-17. This is the second year in a row that Auburn has spoiled an undefeated season for the Gators. Last year the Gators went on to win the National Championship. We will see how they can recover from this loss. Other top ten teams that fell to defeat were Oklahoma, Texas and Rutgers. Overall nine of the top 25 teams lost during one of the most upset filled weekends I have ever seen.

YouTube:OSU Coach Loses Control
2007-09-25 20:15:00
It seemed that Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy didn’t really want to talk about the fact that his team had just won a 49-45 shootout against Texas-Tech. Instead, he wanted to talk about an article written about one of his players. The article appeared in The Oklahoman and question the toughness of backup quarterback Bobby Reid. These comments obviously did not set well with Gundy and he let everyone know about it by going on a 3 and half minute tirade after the game on Saturday. “Here’s all that kid did: He goes to class, he’s respectful to the media, he’s respectful to the public and he’s a good kid. And he’s not a professional athlete, and he doesn’t deserve to be kicked when he’s down,” Gundy said. He also goes on to say that the person who wrote the column obviously did not have children. Mike also said on Monday that he felt bad that the speech took away from the win on Saturday but he did not apologize for the tirade...

YouTube:Remarkable Fake Field Goal
2007-09-24 17:42:00
This has to be the best fake field goal I have ever seen. South Carolina stopped the LSU Tigers on 3rd and goal and LSU set up for the field goal. The kicker Colt david lined up for the field goal and Matt Flynn received the snap. As soon as the ball was snapped Colt headed to his right and Flynn flipped it over to his head to Colt and he ran in for the touchdown. The look on Steve Spurriers face after the play was priceless.

Bonds Only 1 Back
2007-07-28 16:39:00
Barry Bonds has hit not 754. He hit a solo shot in the first inning against the Florida Marlins. This homer puts him only 1 home run back of Hank Aron’s record of 755. The homer was hit off of Florida pitcher Rick Vanden Hurk who said he knew as soon as it left his hand that the pitch was gonna stay up and Bonds would have a chance at it. This was Barry’s first home run at home since number 750 on June 29th against Livan Hernandez of Arizona. Eric Stomer was the lucky fan to retrieve number 754. The rest of bonds at bats didn’t go so well and he wound up walking in the third, fifth, sixth and eighth innings. The Giants ended up winning the game 12-10.

DEI and Ginn Racing Merge
2007-07-25 21:42:00
    DEI officials have announced that Ginn Racing will merge with DEI immediately and that DEI will become a four car team as for Sunday’s race in Indianapolis. This announcement come just a few months after Dale Earnhardt Jr. said he was leaving the team to join Hendrick Motorsports. It seems that the team founded by legend Dale Earnhardt will not let the announcement that Jr. is leaving have a negative affect on the team. The four drivers that will be racing for DEI on Sunday are Dale Jr., Martin Truex Jr., Paul Menard and Mark Martin.       This move will help DEI’’s position in the owner’s points but the president of global operation for DEI, Max Siegel, says that is not the reason for the merger. He says that this is good for the long-term goals of DEI. A major factor in the deal may have been the land that DEI will acquire when they move into Ginn’s shop by the end os the season.

Switzerland Wins
2007-07-03 20:25:00
Switzerland held off the charging Team New Zealand to win the Americas Cup on Tuesday. With this win they became only the third country in the 156-year old trophy’s history to do so.

They won the series 5-2 and joined The United States and New Zealand as the only three countries to win this coveted title back to back. The Swiss swept New Zealand in this race four years ago but this match up was much closer than that. Congratulations Team Switzerland on doing something rarely ever seen today.
