My Ninja Please! 6.30.09 : DIY Soccer Ball

Firstly you look for old clothes or blankets. Then you put a few condoms around, which you blow up with your mouth, but not with too much air. Just so ita€™s the same size as a soccer ball. After this you put either a plastic bag or a piece of old clothing over the condom. Then to make it strong, you tear up the old clothing or blanket into long strips and tie the strips all around the condom to strengthen the shape of the ball and make it heavier. Once you can feel it bounces well, you take a strong plastic bag and wrap it around the ball. Lastly you reinforce it by wrapping strong rope or tire wire around it.

Female Umps/Refs

In case you were pondering what we were pondering…

Ria Cortesio, a woman umpire, called Thursday’s spring training game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs in Mesa, Ariz.a€"the first time in almost 20 years that a female umpire made it to a major league exhibition game. Why doesn’t baseball have more female umpires?

Little League baseball is still a boys’ game. Young girls tend to play softball or another sport, so they rarely join baseball teams in high school or college. And since many prospective umpires are former baseball players, there’s an especially small pool of women who have a passion for umpiring. Each year, just a handful of women enroll at one of the country’s two umpire schools. No wonder there have been just six women umpires in the history of minor league baseball, and none in the major leagues.

To become an umpire, men and women alike must fork over $2,000 to $3,000 in tuition and spend a few weeks working on their stance, calls, strike zone, field positioning, and voice control. (After that, getting to the major leagues is a long shot no matter what gender you are…

Gamers can try NYC river ditching

hudson_narrowweb__300x2920.jpg

A free computer game has gone online that challenges players to become the next "Hero on the Hudson" by safely landing a virtual passenger jet on the New York City waterway.

The streamed game warns players that both jet engines are disabled, it is impossible to make it to an airport, and they must ditch in the Hudson River in a virtual version of the US Airways miracle landing on January 15.

"The fate of the passengers is in your hands," reads an introductory page of the game available online at www.tastyplay.com.

Players then use left and right arrow keys to keep an animated jet parallel to the surface of the onscreen river as it makes an emergency descent with dark smoke billowing from its engines.

Level landings are rewarded with a banner proclaiming the player a hero as tiny figures representing passengers file onto the wings. Sloppy landings are met with the sight and sound of a sinking jet.

The pilot of the US Airways jet that ditched in icy waters off New York in real life was hailed as a hero for coolly saving 155 passengers and crew.

The former fighter pilot was lauded for smoothly ditching the jet belly-first onto the Hudson River.

The soft landing allowed passengers to safely escape from the stricken craft.

Recession and the rings

537565236_03e7407279.jpg

Back on this date in 1981, on the cusp of the Reagan era, it may have seemed like morning here in America. But at the very same time, the international Olympic movement looked out ahead and saw nothing but clouds on every horizon. As real-world crises kept intruding on and overshadowing the worlda€™s quadrennial sports celebration, the future of the Olympics increasingly appeared fraught with peril.

The Olympic crown jewela€"the Summer Gamesa€"had just witnessed a third successive disaster. Munich a€™72 had endured the murder of Israeli Olympians by Black September terrorists, a worst-case scenarioa€"Jewish blood spilt on German soila€"that was far worse than anything organizers ever imagined. Montreal a€™76 was not as infamous, unless, of course, you lived there; it left behind crippling debta€"finally paid off just a few years agoa€"and facilities that came to define white elephants. And Moscow a€™80 had been reduced to a private party, virtually ignored in the West after America and its allies boycotted the festivities to protest the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Bullish on Bowling — Yes, Bowling

bowlingstadiummnp.png

The economic crisis that pushed the National Football League and National Basketball Association to announce staff cuts, forced Honda out of Formula One racing and cost Tiger Woods his Buick sponsorship has reached a sport rarely in the news — bowling.

In the midst of what has been a renaissance, bowling recently experienced a rare off-month. There was no press coverage because there was no official accounting, just conversation "that numbers were down in October," reported by John Berglund, executive director of the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America, upon returning early last month from a national meeting of bowling-center owners in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Goldfish Training Kit

fishtrainingmnp.jpg

Picture it: Lassie returns to the house barking. "What is it girl? Timmy’s fallen down the well?" And then everyone runs to get that little fool out. But it’s too late. Goldie already saved Timmy’s sorry butt. Because Goldie is the goldfish you trained with your R2 Fish Training School Kit - and fish lives in the well! Ok, so that was a little overdramatic, but when you put your fish though Fish School, you’ll be amazed by the talent of your little scaly friend.

Take a sec and watch the video, we’ll wait . . . done? No stunt fish or special effects were used; that was an actual fish trained using this kit. You get everything you need to teach your fish to play football, play soccer, limbo, weave, fetch, go through tubes, and more! And then you can quit your job and go on tour. It’ll be just you, Twinkie the fish, and the open road. With the R2 Fish Training School Kit and a little perseverance, the world is your oyster . . . well, goldfish.
