The Boy´s Own Book of Indoor Games and Recreations:a popular encyclopædia for boys Gordon Stables/ George A. Hutchison
The first in-depth biography of one of the most talented and infamous legends to play in the National Football League - the life and times of pro football´s first bad boy, famed Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler. Ken ´´The Snake´´ Stabler was the embodiment of the original Men in Black - the freewheeling, hard-hitting Oakland Raiders. The league´s first swashbuckling pass thrower, the mythical southpaw Southerner famous for come-from-behind drives late in the game, Stabler led the Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship in 1977. In an era dominated by gentleman quarterbacks like Roger Staubach and Bob Griese, this 1974 NFL MVP, four-time Pro Bowler, and Super Bowl champion was an iconoclast who partied as hard as he played and lived life unapologetically on his own - not the NFL´s - terms. Though Stabler´s legacy is larger than life, there has never before been an exclusive account of him - until now. Snake goes deep under the surface of Stabler´s persona to reveal a man who, despite his penchant for partying and debauchery, was committed to winning and being the best player he could be. From his college days playing for Bear Bryant at Alabama to his years with the Raiders under coach John Madden, his broadcasting career to his death in 2015 and the revelation that he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, known as CTE, Snake probes the myriad facets of Stabler´s life on and off the field to tell his complete story and explores how his legacy and the culture and times that pivotally shaped it continue to impact football today. 1.

The names change, but the game remains the same. The pimp has reached nearly mythical status. We are fascinated by the question of how a guy from the ghetto with no startup capital and no credit - nothing but the words out of his mouth - comes not only to have a stable of sexy women who consider him ´´their man´´, but to drive a Rolls, sport diamonds, and wear custom suits and alligator shoes from Italy. His secret is to follow the ´´unwritten rules of the game´´ - a set of regulations handed down orally from older, wiser macks - which give him superhuman powers of charm, psychological manipulation, and persuasion. In Pimpology, star of the documentaries Pimps Up, Ho´s Down and American Pimp and Annual Players Ball Mack of the Year winner Ken Ivy pulls a square´s coat on the unwritten rules that took him from the ghetto streets to the executive suites. Ken´s lessons will serve any person in any interaction. Whether at work, in relationships, or among friends, somebody´s got to be on top. To be the one with the upper hand, you´ve got to have good game, and good game starts with knowing the rules. If you want the money, power, and respect you dream of, you can´t just ´´pimp your ride´´ - you need to pimp your whole life. And unless you´ve seen Ray Charles leading Stevie Wonder somewhere, you need Ken´s guidelines to do it. They´ll reach out and touch you like AT&T and bring good things to life like GE. Then you can be the boss with the hot sauce who gets it all like Monty Hall. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mr. Gates.

To borrow the slogan offered over the Bryant-Denny Stadium public address system before the start of every Alabama home game, ´´This is Alabama football.´´ Ask a fan to talk about his favorite game and he’ll probably answer, ´´Which season?´´ Ask another to describe his favorite Crimson Tide play, and he may also respond the same way. And if asking an Alabama fan to recall his favorite player, don’t be surprised if you are asked to be more specific: ´´Which year? Which game? Which position?´´ Such is the tradition and legacy of the program. The tradition connects former coaches and players to the current team, and fans from the program’s early days to those of today. Written by Tommy Hicks, who has worked for five newspapers in the state of Alabama over a 30-year span, Game of My Life: Alabama offers a view from field level and in the huddle as 30 Alabama players share the experiences and emotions of the favorite games of their careers. From Harry Gilmer and his excellent play in the 1946 Rose Bowl to Brodie Croyle leading Alabama to an impressive win over Florida in the 2005 season, Alabama has had more than its share of great moments, great games, and great players. Game of My Life: Alabama focuses on 30 of those moments, 30 of those games, 30 of those players. You’ll discover the simple advice and prediction head coach Paul ´´Bear´´ Bryant gave his team before the 1967 Auburn game won by quarterback Ken Stabler’s famous ´´run in the mud´´. You’ll also be given an insider’s view of a favorite game for Ken Stabler, Mike Shula, Brodie Croyle, Lee Roy Jordan, Cornelius Bennett, Billy Neighbors, Woodrow Lowe, Joey Jones, Bobby Humphrey, and many others. Game of My Life: Alabama highlights some of the games and moments that have added to the tradition of Alabama football. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Souer.

In order to play tennis at your very best it is important to develop a relaxed and stable inner state, whatever the situation you find yourself in. Successful tennis players are completely absorbed in their game, relaxed, yet focused and energised too. They imagine themselves as winners and have total faith in themselves. This recording is designed to help you to begin to continue to develop this ability within yourself. In addition to this recording being written and delivered by Darren Marks one of the UKs leading hypnotherapists and NLP practitioners, it also utilizes dual delivery hypnotherapy (DDH) and brainwave entrainment. DDH involves different suggestions or metaphors being delivered separately yet simultaneously through the right and left headphones. The effect is deeply hypnotic and has the advantage of helping the unconscious mind to accept beneficial suggestions with less conscious interference. When the brain is exposed to rhythm, the rhythm is recreated in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm is the right speed it can begin to mimic natural brainwave patterns. When this occurs, the brain reacts by synchronizing to the same rhythm. This phenomenon is called the Frequency Following Response (or FFR). FFR is used here to assist people to rapidly access deep meditative states which could take years to master without assistance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Darren Marks.
