Lawrence Taylor Unable to Make All Those Moves

April 23, 2009

There is one happy chapter added in Lawrence Taylor’s biography with the punchline “Dancing with Edyta Sliwinska.” He may be good with his moves at the field, but that is not what judges felt when he was ousted from the competition on 21 April. As we the saying goes: “Wining and losing is not what matter, but the struggle and the fight.” Unfortunate for the footballer, he is now off the ball.

There is one small twist in the whole story, the philosophy of positivism that sometimes results in better results than otherwise. Taylor took it all well, “21 points that is what you give to Taylor. You know when I kick I kick real hard.” No it wasn’t like that. The footballer who spends most of his time playing golf was happy and cool. He was quite amazed at the efforts that professional dancers require to make those graceful moves.

It is a good lesson for football fans as well. Well, the sport may need to have the killer’s instinct above all, but dancing is more like revealing. It is about control, balance and harmony.

The 8th Season of “Dancing with the Stars” moves on, with the subtraction of Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska. With no extra times and penalty shoots, the scoreboard read: Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska: 21 points, the lowest amongst all. Top Performers on the day were Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani with judges awarding them 29 points, Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas with 28 points, Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke with 27 points, Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough with 27, Lil’ Kim and Derek Hough with 26, Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower with 24 points, Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska with 21.

It may not be a shock after all to Taylor’s fans, as they know that the dark horse was not going to make it big.


Baby Mammoth on TV

April 21, 2009

I the torthwest of Sibera lies a forlorn district called Yemel Peninsula. In October 2007, scientists discovered the remains of a baby mammoth, Lyuba. The baby mamoth was actually discovered by a herdsman, Yuri Khudi. Th ebaby mammoth has been named after Yuri Kudi’s wife’s name, Lyuba, meaning love in Russian.

Lyuba, the baby mammoth, who was just a month or so old when she died, has caught the attention worldwide as NatGeo prepares to broadcast a premier show of hers. The baby died under mysterious circumstances, some 40,000 years ago. Scientists have been investigating the circumstances that led to her sad end.

There have been speculations that the discovery of Lyuba will unfold many of the mysteries, including the factors that led to the extinction of this species thousands of years ago. This will be kind of a straight trip to ICE AGE. The narration for the premier is provided by famous actor, Victor Garber.The programme will be telecasted on April 26 on National Geographic Channel.

That is not what people are really interested in. The truth is that people share some kind of emotional bond with this prehistoric specie that has been so lucidly described in the animation movies Ice Age. The woolly mammoth with long tusks have been characterized in a number of works, books, movies, telltales, etc. It is time that we find out what the creatures were actually like.

Also, some people believe that the DNA mapping and extract can help in bringing back this specie, whether it is possible at this time, we are not quite sure of. Lyuba may further be a new character in the animation sequels, Ice Age, in which the animal has a lead role. So far so good, let us see what the buzz can do about it.
