Angry Birds is a strategy puzzle mobile game developed by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Mobile. Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the game was first developed for Apple’s iOS in December 2009. Since that time, over 12 million copies of the game have been purchased from Apple’s App Store, which has prompted the company to design versions for other touchscreen-based smartphones, such as those using the Android operating system, among others.

The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots on Sunday by a score of 21-17 in their second meeting in the past five Super Bowls. The Giants previously beat the Patriots in the 2008 contest. Inspired by their dynamic quarterback Eli Manning, the Giants erased an eight-point third-quarter deficit to steal the victory with a last-minute touchdown from Ahmad Bradshaw in a stunning repeat of their last Super Bowl win, also against the Patriots, four years ago.
“The greatest feeling in professional sports is to win the Super Bowl,” said New York’s Tom Coughlin, who at 65 became the oldest National Football League coach to win a Super Bowl. “What a wonderful experience it was to see the team come together like they did.”
Eli Manning’s efforts in yesterday’s Super Bowl XLVI, New York Giants star Eli Manning was not only awarded with the Most Valuable Player title but a brand new 2012 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Centennial Edition as well.
“It was a great game with two great teams,” Manning said. “We played to the very end. There were some big plays being made.”

Lawrence Tynes kicked two field goals then Manning mounted an 88-yard drive, that included a spectacular catch from Mario Manningham, before Bradshaw scored the winning touchdown with just 57 seconds left on the clock.
“You don’t feel good after you lose this game,” said New England head coach Bill Belichick. “It was wild out there. Hey, it’s the Super Bowl.
“I can’t fault the effort of any of our players. They played as hard as they could … We could have played a tiny bit better. It was obviously a very competitive football game.”
It was a game that lived up to all the hype and expectation as the two teams slugged it out in front of a crowd of nearly 70,000 people and an expected record television audience.

Dan Wheldon, who moved to the United States from his native England with hopes of winning the Indianapolis 500 and went on to twice prevail at his sport’s most famed race, was killed in a 15-car pileup at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday in the Izod IndyCar Series season finale. Wheldon was 33.
The crash started in front of Wheldon, the reigning Indianapolis 500 champion and 2005 series champion, and his car launched off of a car in front of him, flipped into the catchfence and erupted in flames on Lap 12.
At one point during the crash, three cars were airborne and upside down.
Wheldon was going for a $5-million bonus for he and a fan in Sunday’s race. After starting last, he had worked his way up to 24th place in the 34-car field. (The video starts on board Wheldon’s car)
After announcing Wheldon’s passing at 6 p.m. ET, IndyCar announced that the race would be halted and the drivers would participate in a five-lap parade in tribute to Wheldon.
He was one of the most successful drivers in America and twice winner of the Indianapolis 500, the sport’s showpiece event, in 2005 and 2011.
“IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries,” IndyCar chief executive Randy Bernard said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today.”
“Dan Wheldon was a dear friend and an incredible race driver. His family and friends were with him at the track today, and he was surrounded by love. He was doing what all true racers love best. There is a massive hole in my heart, but I am blessed to have shared in his life, his family and friends and his mighty racing accomplishments.”—Scott Borchetta, president and CEO of the Big Machine Label Group & sponsor of Dan Wheldon’s car.
“It’s a black day for the sport. We came in here hoping for a good season-finale and ended up losing a very close friend and a very good racing driver. —IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe.
“All of us here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway are deeply saddened by the death of Dan Wheldon. He was a tremendous race car driver and a great representative for IndyCar racing. Our prayers are with Dan’s family as well as the officials and sponsors of IndyCar.”—Chris Powell, president of LVMS.
“We put so much pressure on ourselves to win races and championships, and that’s what we love to do, what we live for. Days like today, it doesn’t really matter. I lost, we lost, a good friend. Everybody in IndyCar considered Dan a friend. You saw what the reaction was. Dan was one of those special, special people, from when he first showed up at IndyCar.”—Dario Franchitti (Wheldon’s former teammate and 2011 season champion)
“Dan Wheldon was a tremendous competitor and great racer and an even better person. It was an honor to have him be a part of our team. All of us at Sam Schmidt Motorsports are deeply saddened by his passing. On behalf of everyone at Sam Schmidt Motorsports, our prayers go out to all of his family, especially his wife, Susie, and their two children.”—Sam Schmidt, owner of Sam Schmidt Motorsports.
“We’re all going to miss him. A little bit of everybody in IndyCar racing died today.”—Chip Ganassi, owner of Chip Ganassi Racing, Wheldon’s former team.
“I feel so bad for Susie and their kids. It’s so tough to understand when somebody is gone that quickly. Dan was always a very happy guy; he was always smiling. He was a funny, great person that touched a lot of people. He will be missed.”—IndyCar driver Oriol Servia.
“The passing of Dan Wheldon today is a great shame. Dan was a great driver as evidenced by not only his Indianapolis 500 victories, but by his many wins and great performances in the race car. But he was much more than a great driver. He was a good guy, good family man and really seemed to have a bright future, not only as a driver, but as a television personality as well.”—Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Racing.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dan Wheldon’s family and friends on this sad, sad day. All of us in the IndyCar family feel an unexplainable sense of loss. Not just for the sport, but for all who knew Dan Wheldon. Dan was a family man, a father, a husband, a son and a brother. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was also a competitor and a colleague … our deepest condolences go out to all who knew Dan.”—Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons.
SkyJump is a controlled freefall from the tower’s observation deck to the ground.
XScream resembles a giant seesaw that sends riders teetering over the edge of the tower.
The Big Shot is a hydraulic freefall drop tower, similar to many found at theme parks–except this one is on top of the tower.
Insanity has seats tethered to an arm that swings out beyond the tower leaving riders dangling 1000 feet in the air. As the ride begins its circular motion, the seats rise and tilt downward to the Strip. Insane indeed.
Football is the most played sports on earth and hence got the most fan following. The FIFA World Cup is one of the most watched international sports event as well. A football player therefore is an icon and hero not only for his nation but hero off millions of its fans.
