Super Bowl XLV Got No Cheerleaders For the First Time

You’re reading it right folks. This year’s Super Bowl got no cheerleaders. If you’re expecting these sexy girls this weekend, then you will just be disappointed. The two teams which are competing for this year’s Super Bowl got no cheer leading team. The Pittsburgh Steelers stopped having cheerleaders in 1970, and the Green Bay Packers got rid of their cheerleaders in 1988. Both teams just found out years ago that these girls don’t mean much to their fans.

For this season, the last game that NFL got cheerleaders during a major game was during the AFC wildcard match between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets. The Jets emerged victorious by they were not able to surpass the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Some watchers would want to see these sexy girls but neither of the two teams would want to hire stand-ins. Some fans are just okay with it because they don’t want further distractions.

According to Lindsay McCormick, host of The Fan on Comcast SportsNet, “I do think cheerleaders add to the atmosphere of the game, but this is the Super Bowl. How much more atmosphere do you need? You’ve already got the Black Eyed Peas and plenty of entertainment throughout the game.” She’s got a point actually. If people are just concerned of seeing a sexy figure in the game, Fergie is more that enough for all them.

Better start looking for that site having the Super Bowl 2011 live stream as early as this time to watch this much awaited game. The US government has been very strict these days and just had seized ten of the most popular sport event streaming sites but sports site owners just have several ways of showing it to their readers.

Photoshoot For Packers Re-Scheduled For The Injured Reserve

Super Bowl XLV is just one of the most important sport event in USA and everyone has been looking forward to it. All related news to it are just being posted every now and then. May it be about the venue, the schedule, the teams and most especially the players.

Aside from updating everyone as to where they can watch a free Super Bowl 2011 live stream, most often that not, sports writers are keeping up with what has been going on with the player’s life. They do it through monitoring their social networking sites like Twitter. They often update everyone with what’s going on with them from time to time. It is also their means of reaching out to their fans and airing out their sentiments especially if they can’t say it directly to their big bosses.

This is the very thing that injured linebacker of Packers Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley did. They resorted to Twitter complaining that they weren’t going to be in the photo of Packers because it was scheduled to be taken Tuesday which is two days before injured players are to arrive in Dallas. It was then brought up to the management and they decided to reschedule the photo for Friday so that everyone could participate.

Coach Mike McCarthy sees what the players did as a “poor decision” when they complained about it in public, but that it was no big deal to change the timing of the photo.

McCarthy would want these petty things to distract the team especially now that they are very busy preparing for the big event.

Gay Rights Campaigner in Uganda Was Beaten To Death


Gay Rights Campaigner in Uganda Was Beaten To Death – Uganda gay rights campaigner, David Kato, has been beaten to death. Police have confirmed the death of David Kato but say they are still investigating the circumstances.

Last year Kato sued a local newspaper which named him as being homosexual. Homosexual acts are illegal in Uganda, with punishments of 14 years in prison.

Uganda’s local newspaper, Rolling Stone newspaper, published the photographs of several people it said were gay next to a headline stating “Hang them”.

As a matter of fact, an MP recently tried to increase the penalties to include the death sentence in some cases.

The witnesses to the incident said that a man entered Kato’s home near Kampala, and beat him to death before leaving.

His Sexual Minorities Uganda (Smug) group said Kato had been receiving death threats since his name, photograph and address were published by Rolling Stone last year. Not only that, several activist claimed they had been attacked after their photographs were published.

Following a complaint by Kato and others, a judge in November ordered Rolling Stone to stop publishing the photographs of people it said were homosexual, indicating it contravened their right to privacy.

For the meantime, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has called for a swift investigation into his death. According to HRW’s Maria Burnett, David Kato’s death is a tragic loss to the human rights community.

David Kato had campaigned against Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which appears to have been quietly dropped after provoking a storm of international criticism when it was mooted in 2009.

The glamorous model released a statement saying: “Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months. I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly—we all make mistakes and this was one. However, Alex changed from the man I fell in love with.” She added: “some of his behavior became difficult” for her to understand and “caused issues”.

Katie Price and Alex Reid, started dating months after she announced her separation from Peter Andre in May 2009. Reid proposed to Price months later after her divorce from the singer was settled.

Price claimed she had supported her husband’s ambition to attract more media attention, but his desire to promote himself contributed to the couple’s alienation.

They have failed to resolve their differences because the issues between them are too deep rooted. The reality TV star added: “I am deeply upset that my relationship with Alex has failed but I know it is the right thing for my children and I that we separate. My children are my absolute priority in this and they are being shielded from what is happening.”

Nonetheless, Katie Price refused to acknowledge the reports that she had talked about money with her divorce lawyers.
