    If you can still get tickets, the ECHL National Conference Semi-Finals are tonight at 7:05 between the Las Vegas Wranglers (Pacific Division Champions) and the Idaho Steelheads.

  • Asian Ladies Capture the Ice
    We all are impressed by the stereotype given to our Asian sisters and brothers – talent, hard work, great fine motor skills, discipline, cool under pressure, single-minded determination. The World Chamiponships in Tokyo only proves the point. The gold goes to Miki Ando, Japan, silver to Mao Asada, Japan, and bronze to Yu-Na Kim, Korea. It’s hard to imagine...

  • UNLV beats Georgia Tech at NCAA
    UNLV 67 Georgia Tech 63! I’m sure this is no news to you basketball fans. You undoubtably listened to every minute of the game.

All the brouhaha about seeding seems like ancient history now....

  • Cirque du Soleil Auditions 2007
    I saw The Beatles “Love” at the Mirage Sunday night and was wondering again where Cirque du Soleil finds their incredible dancers and acrobats, not to mention where they get their ideas. One answer is recruitment by email to participate in artistic auditions held in Paris, Orlando, San Francisco, Montreal, Vienna, Chicago, Oslo and Stockholm. I find it curious...

  • Mountain West Conference and Nascar
    Just in case you don’t read the paper, see TV or listen to the radio, this weekend promises to be one of complete insanity in terms of traffic. The Mountain West Conference of College Men’s Basketball is at Thomas Mack and Nascar is at the LV Speedway.

  • Superbowl Oscars for Commercials
    Everybody has to say SOMETHING about the Superbowl, because even if you can’t make sense of the game or could care less, the great national common denominator is the commercial break between plays. Or is it plays between commercial breaks? What ARE they doing on the field while the rest of us are watching ads? Anyway, if you are really into the ad thing, MSN.com...
