Three Favorite Website

1. Someone may like that it has to do with one of the most popular things in the world, sports. It is possible to have also created a Fantasy team through this site. Fantasy sports hae sports such as football, basketball, and baseball and has become very popular in the last few games.

2. This site is very confusing the first time you enter it. A viewer needs to leave the mouse on a link sometimes just to get to certain areas or know what is in that area. A brief overview of top stories can be found by rolling over the headline with you mouse, I really enjoy that feature.

1. This website is the best when someone has nothing to do and is bored. It has many games for hours of fun although, it has a few adult games that should not be played by some audiences. This site doesn't have just games, also has videos, pictures, and jokes.

2. This website is simple and shouldn't be too difficult to find games to play, video to look at, or just somethng to do. The navagation is on the left side of their page. The home page holds the top 10 videos, games, pictures, and jokes so people can get started right away.

1. is a website full of the latest new on famous actors and musicians. Its a perfect website for people who need to know everthing that is going on in the famous world.

2. This website is very "hip." There is a lot of flash and things happening but, the navagation is on the top and someone shouldn't have a hard time to get around. This site uses a drop-down navagation system so, be ready to read.

Biggest Upset

This weekend Michigan's football team was shocked against Appalachian State at home. Appalachian State is the defending 1-AA national champion which just came up to the 1-A league. The first team they had to face in the 1-A division the #5 ranked Michigan. Michigan is known as a national powerhouse and had a good chance of going to the BCS bowl game and winning the national title. Michigan was a heavy favorite in this game but, Appalachian State had other ideas.
Appalachian took over the game from the start and at one point was leading 31-20 in the 3rd quarter. The game took an exciting turn when the Wolverines (Michigan) score two touchdowns but, they went for 2-point convertions after each touchdown and missed them both. The score was then 31-32 with about a 3 minutes left in the game. Appalachian's offence turned the ball over again with an interception on the 1st play after the kick-off. Michigan had a big opportunity to finish this game by scoring one more touchdown but, it was something they could just not do. Michigan was stopped and had to attempt a field-goal. Appalachian blocked the field-goal and it rolled into the endzone for a touchback.
Appalachian had the ball, down one point, with about a minute and 30 seconds left in the game. Appalachian State made an offensive stand for the ages reaching the 10-yard line with 30 seconds left on the clock. With no time-outs left they had to attempt a field goal. The kick was good and Appalachian was then up 34-32. Michgan made a few pass completions to get within field goal range. Yet again, Appalachian State blocked the kick and they won the game. This game was said to be one of the biggest upsets in college football of all time.

God Of War 2: The End Begins

The semi-new video game for the Playstation 2 is causing a huge buzz. God of War 2 is a twist on Greek mythology including characters such as Zeus, Aphrodite, and Poseidon. These famous characters are only some of many widely known characters also in this game. Villains such as Medusa, the cyclops, and even the legendary titans are included in this game. Many mythological creatures are also presented in very good graphics. The harpie, the living dead, and giant monsters and just a few of the creatures faced in this fast-paced game. Along with all the blood and gore action, there are also some very difficult puzzle that have to be solved to move forward in the game.

The main character in this wild murderous game is named Kratos. Although he doesn't know it, he is the son of Zeus. In his first adventure he became a slave to the God of War named Aries. As Aries became more powerful, the gods began to worry. Since the gods were not allowed to fight against each other, Athena (Zeus' daughter), asked Kratos to find Pandora's box and take down Aries. Kratos completes his task and the gods make him the new God of War.

Kratos turns out to be even worse than Aries ever was. Haunted by his horrible past and the memory of accidentally killing his own wife and daughter, he enters the world to conquer the lands with his fellow Spartans. Zeus had seen enough and attempts to kill Kratos but, fails due to the Titans aiding Kratos to get out of Hades. With his hate boiling, Kratos sets off to kill the Sisters of Fate, which control time itself. The power of the sisters will give Kratos the ability to go back to when Zeus killed him and stop him from ever doing so. With Zeus out of the picture, the Titans along with Kratos will rule Olympus and the all the mortals below. This will lead to the end, this is the reason the title is The End Begins.

This game takes a very long time to beat, even longer to unlock all of the special features. God of War 2 is said by G4's gaming experts to be the best game on the PS2 to date. Getting a 4.5 out of 5 from IGN magazine and a 5 out of 5 from X-Play is only half of it. The game also has a bonus DVD which give a behind the scenes look at the game and how it was created. God of War 2 will always be a must have for Playstation 2 owners.
