KDND's studios. The contest was broadcast during the station's Morning Rave program and began around 6: 1. Contestants also said that as the contest progressed, they were given increasingly larger quantities of water to drink. Some later remarked on the physical discomfort they suffered during and following the event. The Sacramento Bee released audio clips from the morning show indicating that the disc jockeys were aware of the death of Matthew Carrington by water intoxication. At one point, a caller contacted the station and informed the DJs that the contest could be dangerous and potentially fatal. The DJs responded by saying, "We're aware of that," and joked that the contestants had signed releases and couldn't file a lawsuit. However, according to a contestant, the waivers addressed only publicity issues and made no mention of health or safety concerns. The DJs also joked about Strange's distended belly, joking that she looked three months pregnant.After the contest, Strange spoke to a co- worker by telephone, indicating she was on her way home and in extreme pain, suffering from what appeared to be an intense headache. The co- worker contacted Strange's mother, who went to her home an hour later to find her daughter dead.[1.
AftermathOn January 1. KDND's website was replaced with a message from John Geary, the station's vice- president and general manager, expressing sympathies to Strange's family and announcing that the Morning Rave program would be taken off the air indefinitely.

However, Deborah Hoffman of KXTV television reported that former prosecutor Bill Portanova commented that "the radio station has some serious liability exposure", due in part to widespread news coverage of the Matthew Carrington case two years earlier.

MatchupsSaturday, October 1. Atlanta- Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Braves fans had plenty to worry about in regard to both starting pitchers. Tom Glavine's post- season career had been less than stellar, including giving up eight runs in the second inning of Game 6 of the NLCS against Pittsburgh. Entering Game 1, Glavine's career post- season record was 1вЂ“5 despite two starts where he had pitched well and only given up one earned run each time. Glavine was 0вЂ“2 in those starts.
In addition to Glavine's struggles in the postseason, the Braves would be facing their nemesis from the previous postseason. In the offseason, the Blue Jays signed free agent pitcher Jack Morris to be the ace of their staff. Morris was coming off a 1.
World Series performance that saw him win series MVP and two of his three starts for the Minnesota Twins against the Braves. This included a complete game shutout in the deciding seventh game, where Morris pitched ten innings. While his 1. 99. 1 postseason had been historic, Morris' 1. He lost Game 1 of the ALCS against Oakland despite a complete game, and gave up five runs in the third inning of Game 4 but ended up with a no- decision after Toronto rallied for an extra- inning victory. Glavine gave up a home run to Joe Carter in the fourth for the first run of the Series, while Morris shut the Braves out for five innings.
After dropping the first game, the Mets turned to young phenom Dwight Gooden in what figured to be a classic matchup with Boston's own young pitching sensation Roger.
In the sixth, with two runners on and two out Damon Berryhill golfed a Morris pitch over the right- field wall for a three- run homer. It was all the offense Atlanta needed, and the Braves took the game by a 3вЂ“1 count. Glavine went the distance for the victory, only giving up four total hits. In taking the loss, Morris suffered his first career World Series defeat in his sixth start, with one no- decision.
Berryhill's home run marked the first runs Morris had given up in the World Series since a Terry Pendleton home run in the bottom of the third inning of Game 4 of the 1. Series. Morris pitched an additional 3 1вЃ„3 innings in that game, all ten in Game 7, and the first 5 2вЃ„3 innings of this game to run his scoreless innings streak in the World Series to 1. Sunday, October 1. Atlanta- Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Before the game started, during the performance of the National Anthems of the United States and Canada, the U. S. Marine Corps Color Guard accidentally flew the flag of Canada upside down[1. The Corps apologized for the error and took pains to carry the flag properly prior to Game 3 in Toronto after insisting that they would be honored to do so.
On top of that, Canadian rock/country musician Tom Cochrane sang the Canadian national anthem incorrectly. Instead of singing the line ".. from far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee ..", Cochrane instead sang a lyric that was in a previous version of the song: ".. O Canada, we stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee ..".
Not only did Cochrane substitute the archaic lyric, he also did not sing it correctly, as the lyric said "we stand on guard, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee" before it was changed. The pitching match- up featured former Met David Cone, acquired by the Jays in an August trade, against the Braves' John Smoltz, with whom he had been battling for the National League strikeout lead at the time of the trade. Cone had 2. 14 strikeouts when he was traded by the Mets to the Blue Jays for Jeff Kent and Ryan Thompson, and due to baseball rules involving players switching leagues his total was frozen at that number while Smoltz continued to earn strikeouts.
Smoltz finished the season with 2. Cone, but Cone led the major leagues with a combined total of 2. Randy Johnson). A controversial call was made by umpire Mike Reilly in the top of the fourth inning with Atlanta leading 1вЂ“0 after David Justice scored on a wild pitch from Cone. Roberto Alomar was at third base with John Olerud batting.
On the first pitch of the at- bat, Smoltz threw a breaking ball that skipped past Damon Berryhill. Alomar broke for home plate while Berryhill went to retrieve the ball.
As Smoltz moved in to receive the throw he nearly collided with a sliding Alomar, who had reached the plate at exactly the same time that both Smoltz and the ball did. Smoltz tagged Alomar and Reilly called him out on the close play, despite an angry Alomar's protest, and the inning came to an end. Replays shown by CBS showed that Alomar might have touched the plate with his hands before Smoltz was able to apply a tag.
In the top of the fifth Pat Borders and Manuel Lee both reached base in front of Cone, who had already singled earlier in the game. Cone responded with his second hit of the game (only the third hit for a pitcher in the World Series since 1. Borders and cut the Atlanta lead to 2вЂ“1.
Lee then scored on a single by Devon White, tying the game. The Braves rallied in the bottom half of the inning as Deion Sanders provided a spark. With one out, Sanders singled. He then immediately stole second, and after Borders made an errant throw he got up and ran to third. Cone then walked Terry Pendleton, then gave up the go- ahead run when David Justice singled in Sanders. Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston then pulled Cone in favor of David Wells, who gave up the fourth Atlanta run when pinch hitter Brian Hunter's sacrifice fly scored Pendleton. Toronto made another rally in the eighth inning.
After Alomar doubled to left with one out, Joe Carter and Dave Winfield hit back to back singles, the second of which scored Alomar and cut the lead to 4вЂ“3. Smoltz was then lifted in favor of Mike Stanton, who retired Olerud, and then closer Jeff Reardon struck out Kelly Gruber to end the threat. The Jays entered the ninth trailing by the one run Reilly had cost them and turned to their bench, which the team had nicknamed "The Trenches".
After a walk to Derek Bell, Toronto reserve infielder Ed Sprague drilled a pitch from Reardon, then baseball's all- time saves leader, to left for a two- run homer to give the Blue Jays the lead. The play was called by legendary Blue Jays announcer the late Tom Cheek, who said "Watch him hit a homer.", during Sprague's at bat. Atlanta tried to rally in the ninth. After Mark Lemke flew out, Toronto closer Tom Henke hit pinch hitter Lonnie Smith with a pitch. Ron Gant came in to pinch run for him and, after Otis Nixon recorded the second out, he stole second.
Sanders then walked to put the winning run on base and Pendleton, an NL MVP candidate, came to the plate. Pendleton had led the majors with a . However, he popped out to Jays third baseman Kelly Gruber to seal the victory for Toronto.
Gruber then angered Braves fans and players by mocking the "Tomahawk Chop" as he left the field.[1. Tuesday, October 2. Sky. Dome in Toronto, Ontario. Before this game, the U.
S. Marine Corps Color Guard offered to hoist the Canadian flag once more in order to make amends for the inverted flag incident of Game 2. Likewise, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police flew the flag of the United States. As Game 3 moved across the border (for the first Canadian Classic) the question still remained of the Blue Jays' ballpark benefit.
Before this series, the Blue Jays had previously only gone 3вЂ“6 in the postseason in their home park. Two of the wins, however, had come in the American League Championship Series as the Blue Jays won Game 2 and the clinching Game 6 against Oakland at home.

It was only the third time that the two top- ranked teams had faced each other in Rose Bowl history, with the 1. Rose Bowl and 1. 96. Rose Bowl games being the others. The 9. 2nd- annual Rose Bowl Game was played, as it is every year, at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, in the United States.

This was Texas's second trip to the Rose Bowl in two years (and second trip in the history of UT football). A few weeks before the game, USC's Reggie Bush won the Heisman Trophy (since vacated in 2. Vince Young. Bush had the second- highest number of first place votes in Heisman history (behind O. J. Simpson) and the highest percentage of first- place votes, while Young had a record number of second- place votes. Bush's 9. 33- point margin of victory was the 1. Heisman voting history. The other finalist was USC's Matt Leinart, who had won the Heisman trophy in 2.
This meant that the Rose Bowl would mark the first time that two Heisman- trophy winners had ever played in the same backfield.The 2. Rose Bowl was, in the eyes of many, the most- anticipated matchup in college- football history.[1. Both teams were considered good enough to win the National Championship had they existed in different years instead of having to play each other. USC had been ranked No.
Texas had held the No. Before the game, some commentators postulated that the 2. USC team was one of the greatest college- football teams of all time.[1. ESPN analysts were virtually unanimous in declaring the 2. USC Trojans as having the best offense in college- football history [1. Texas did).[1. 4]Mark May and Kirk Herbstreit declared that the 2. USC Trojans were the second- best college- football team of the past 5.
May placed them behind only the 1. Nebraska Cornhuskers; Herbstreit behind only the 2. Miami Hurricanes).[1. This led Texas fans to mockingly chant "Best.. Team.. Ever" during the post- game celebration.[1.
Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated later observed, "ESPN spent the better part of Christmas season comparing that Trojans squad to some of the most acclaimed teams of all time only to find out that they werenвЂ™t even the best team that season."[1. Lee Corso was one of the few ESPN analysts to predict a Texas win.[1. Game summaryFirst quarterUSC received the opening kickoff and managed just three yards against a Texas defense that was stout early in the game. Aaron Ross fumbled the ball on the ensuing punt return, committing the first of four Texas fumbles on the day (though it would only lose one), and the Trojans recovered.

Leinart pass, reaching Texas's 1. Texas strong safety Michael Huff recovered the loose ball.[1.
The Pac- 1. 0 football- officiating coordinator later stated that Bush's pass was incorrectly officiated because it was an illegal forward pass, not a lateral, so the Trojans should have retained possession.[1. Young drove his team 5. David Thomas, who finished the day as Young's leading receiver, catching ten passes for 8. The Trojans' defense tackled sophomore running back Ramonce Taylor five yards behind the line of scrimmage and forced a fumble that Young recovered for an additional five- yard loss. This forced a Texas field- goal attempt, which David Pino converted from 4.
Texas's deficit to four. On USC's next possession, Leinart drove his team into Texas territory, this time to the 2. Texas free safety Michael Griffin, who appeared to be out of the play but ran halfway across the field before making a leaping catch and barely staying in- bounds in the end zone.
The turnover ended a second Trojans' drive with USC in scoring position. On the following Texas drive, Young connected with wide receiver Limas Sweed, who caught eight balls for 6.
Young then led his team with his legs, capping the drive by running 1. Selvin Young, who ran for 1. The lateral, made after Young's knee had touched the ground, was not reviewed because of issues with the replay equipment. The game continued with a failed extra- point attempt by Texas, which, not knowing of the equipment issues, appeared to rush the kick to get the play off before the prior play could be reviewed.[1. The NCAA football- officiating coordinator later asserted that Young's knee had been down, and expressed confusion about how the call had been handled.[1.

Pino's extra point extended the Longhorns' lead to 1. On the next drive, Leinart threw a pass intended for Reggie Bush that was grabbed by Texas linebacker/safety Drew Kelson. But Kelson landed on his back after catching the pass and the ball popped out. The pass was ruled incomplete; equipment issues again prevented a review. USC's drive continued with a Leinart pass to wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett, the top Trojan receiver of the day with ten catches totaling 1. Bush 1. 2- yard run took the Trojans to the Texas 1.

During the following USC drive, Leinart hit Jarrett for three passes totaling 3. White added the final 1. It was his second of the game, and it put the Trojans ahead, 1.

The lead changed hands once more with 4: 0. Leinart hit tight end Dominique Byrd for two of his four catches and 2. Although USC had been stopped on a fourth- and- short attempt earlier in the game, it decided to gamble again on fourth- and- one from the 1. White muscled it all the way to the end zone to record his third rushing touchdown of the game and the 5. The achievement set a USC record.[2. The Longhorns reached Trojan territory on the ensuing drive, with Young's 4.

UCLAвЂ“USC rivalry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. UCLA- USC football game at the Rose Bowl; the 2. The UCLAвЂ“USC rivalry refers to the Americancollegiate athletics rivalry between the UCLA Bruins sports teams of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and USC Trojans sports teams of the University of Southern California (USC). UCLA has the most NCAA Division I- sanctioned team championships at 1. USC has the third most NCAA Division I- sanctioned team championships at 1. Both universities are located in Los Angeles.
The rivalry between the two is among the more unusual in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I sports, because the campuses are only 1. Furthermore, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the home stadium of the Trojans football team, is located closer to the UCLA campus than UCLA is to the Rose Bowl, the home stadium of the Bruins football team. The close proximity of alumni and students and the likelihood of members of those groups encountering one another and interacting on a daily basis make this one of the most intense college rivalries in the United States.

Jack Harkness" - Tardis - Wikia. Scrub away the lists, ladies. This article contains far too many bulleted lists. These sections should be converted into normal prose. Talk about it here."Captain Jack Harkness" was the alias adopted by a Time Agent and con man from the 5.
Doctor. After he was killed by a Dalek, he was revived by Rose Tyler, who at the time was transformed into a nearly omnipotent being. Unable to control her powers, she accidentally turned him into an immortal being. Because of this, the Ninth Doctor saw his companion as a fixed point — a temporal paradox that threatened the TARDIS' proper operation. Consequently, the Doctor abandoned him in the year 2.
Dalek- devastated Earth. Stranded, the former Time Agent had to use his own devices to catch up to the Doctor. He thought it likely that he'd find the Ninth Doctor in the early 2. Rose's home era. But his vortex manipulator failed to deliver him there due to the damage caused when he was exterminated by the Daleks, missing by more than a century — and going on the fritz immediately thereafter.
This left the immortal no choice but to simply wait from the mid- 1. Doctor. During his long wait for the "right Doctor", he experienced what was to him Earth's history first hand. He also had many different relationships, some of which produced offspring. For the majority of those years, he also worked for Torchwood Three.
For several decades an informal free- lancer, he eventually became its head in the year 2. Later that decade, he finally met up with the Doctor, although the Time Lord had by this time regenerated, and was now travelling with Martha Jones. At the dawn of the 2. Earth. Although Torchwood were able to repel the threat, their success came at the loss of their physical headquarters and painful personal loss for Jack. He therefore disbanded the group and left Earth. However, he returned during the events of the so- called "Miracle Day", and a new Torchwood team arose.
An important facet of Jack's existence on Earth was its temporal complexity. There were whole decades, when multiple versions of Jack existed on Earth. Indeed, during the whole of the 2. Jacks on Earth, since a younger version was a part of Torchwood Three and an older one was in a grave dug by his brother in ancient Britain.
During the World War II era, Earth had at least one more Jack — the younger "con artist" who first met the Doctor and Rose. Biography Edit Early life Edit. Jack was born around the year 5.

TV: Adam)Jack was reared on the Boeshane Peninsula, a sandy, beach- like area. He spent time with his brother Gray and his father, Franklin, playing cricket and singing around campfires. One day, an unknown enemy invaded his homeland and killed many of the inhabitants.
His father told Jack to flee with Gray, while he went back for Jack's mother. As they ran, Gray stumbled and Jack let go of his hand. Jack continued to run, thinking Gray was behind him. Jack hid in a bush while the invaders flew overhead. He returned home hoping to find his brother, but found only his dead father and his distraught mother.
Jack said it was the worst day of his life. He spent many years searching for his brother unsuccessfully. Jack buried the memory of what happened that day and eventually lost his happier memories of before his father's death. TV: Adam). Growing up Edit.
As a young man, he persuaded a friend to "join up" with him to fight an enemy Jack described only as "the worst possible creatures you can imagine." They were captured. The enemy thought Jack's friend the weaker of the pair and tortured him as a lesson for Jack. They let Jack go, to bear the guilt of his friend's fate. TV: Captain Jack Harkness). Once, when sentenced to death, he ordered four hypervodkas as a last meal and ended up bedding both executioners at the same time. He recalled them as a lovely couple who kept in touch. TV: The Doctor Dances).
As Time Agent and con artist Edit. Jack worked as a Time Agent with John Hart, a partner in more than one context. They once spent five years trapped in a two- week time loop, becoming the equivalent of a married couple after spending so much time together. Hart admitted to having been "a good wife", closing an argument between the two as to the details of the relationship.
TV: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) Jack had been the first Boeshane resident to be signed up for the Time Agency, making him a "poster boy" for the area, known as the "face of Boe". TV: Last of the Time Lords). Jack found that the Agency had erased two years of his past memory, which he wanted back.

He left the Agency and became a time- travelling con artist, running scams using his knowledge of future events. His preferred schemes involved collecting payment for items he knew would be destroyed before the buyer could see it. Finding pieces of space junk and directing them to the soon- to- be disaster sites, Jack would sell them to passers- by, then allow the items to be destroyed before the buyers could pick up their merchandise. At some point, he acquired a small, sleek Chulaspacecraft fitted for human use, which could turn invisible.
TV: The Empty Child). In 1. 94. 1, he assumed the alias of an American volunteer, Captain Jack Harkness, who had died in action the January prior. He knew very little about the real Jack, other than basic information such as the date and manner of his death. TV: Captain Jack Harkness).
Adventures with the Ninth Doctor Edit. Jack brings Rose onto his warship. TV: The Empty Child)While running a scam involving a Chula ambulance in the London Blitz, he spotted Rose Tyler hanging from a barrage balloon.
He rescued her and took her aboard his ship. Deducing she came from the future, and thinking she was a Time Agent, he tried conning her into getting the ambulance. Upon meeting Rose's "companion", the Ninth Doctor, Jack realised that they were just freelancers like he was. The Doctor pointed out that the landing site of the ambulance was where the ground zero of the Empty Child plague started.
Jack believed the object was empty space junk, (TV: The Empty Child) but in fact, the ambulance contained nanogenes. The nanogenes had not seen a human before; they took the gasmask for the deceased child's, Jamie, face and fused it to him, spreading to other people who touched him, also transforming them into undead creatures with no lifesigns.
Jack teleported the Doctor and Rose to his warship to escape, and they went to the bombsite near the hospital, where they realised the truth. The ambulance started its emergency protocols, causing the creatures, who had been armed as "Chula warriors", and were ready to "tear the world apart" to find the boy's mother. Jack saves the Ninth Doctor and Rose from the falling bomb. TV: The Doctor Dances)Every patient and soldier at the bombsite converged on the Doctor, Rose and Jack. The Doctor fixed the nanogenes' mistakes by comparing the DNA of the child and Nancy, who was his mother, restoring the infected zombies to normal. Jack stopped the bomb from hitting the bombsite by placing it in stasis inside his warship and when everyone got to safety, the Doctor destroyed the ambulance, making sure that history said that a bomb hit that location.
The Doctor rescued Jack from his Chula warship just before it exploded, taking him aboard the TARDIS as his latest companion, to the delight of both Rose, who found Jack attractive, and Jack, who found both Rose and the Doctor attractive. TV: The Doctor Dances). Jack uses his Vortex manipulator to jump into The TARDIS. COMIC: Weapons of Past Destruction)The trio shared numerous adventures together, including an encounter with Russian special forces, (PROSE: The Deviant Strain) and later, a neanderthal. PROSE: Only Human). Jack outlines his plan to corner Blon. TV: Boom Town)When the TARDIS became powerless to travel through time, the three travellers went to 2.
Cardiff so that the TARDIS could refuel via a scar in a rift in Cardiff. Whilst in Cardiff, Jack met Rose's estranged boyfriend, Mickey Smith. Together, they captured Blon, the sole Slitheen survivor of a prior attack on 1. Downing Street and who had become Lord Mayor.

Whisper, a strange vigilante that had terrorised the city's underworld. This involved Rose working undercover as a nightclub waitress and Jack as a reporter for the Daily Galaxy.

Ladies, your viewing figures just went up." (TV: Bad Wolf)After visiting Kyoto, Japan in 1. Jack, the Doctor and Rose were abducted by transmat beams, and awoke on the Game Station. Jack found himself on a makeover game show hosted by Trine- E and Zu- Zana. When the android hosts threatened him, he shot them, and improvised a more powerful gun out of their defabricator. Jack met up with the Doctor and an escapee from the deadly games, Lynda Moss, and tracked down Rose. They raced to save Rose from The Weakest Link hosted by a deadly Anne Droid; they were unsuccessful in preventing the Anne Droid from seemingly killing Rose. Completely heartbroken, Jack was tempted to shoot the staff behind the games and threatened to kill the guards when they arrested the Doctor and Lynda, only to get arrested himself for breaking in and out of the games.
However, he and the Doctor physically overpowered the guards and set off to stop the deadly "entertainment". Taking "hostages" in the control room, Jack found the TARDIS stowed away in an archive room. Using the TARDIS, he discovered the laser that "killed" the games' losers was actually teleporting them across space.

First appearance: Mario Kart 64 Blue Shells have been pissing off players for years, and have come to represent the franchise’s worst aspects. Mario has been in great video games, but there are some that failed. The Top TenXW. Although this game is not being released in the US for another month, I bought the imported Japanese version a few days ago (it's called 'Mario Kart Advance' overseas.
This quickly leads to jokes about Mario Kart DS, the merits of balloons and arguments over just how close to perfection Double Dash got."Everyone has fond memories of the Mario Kart series" reads a blurb in the reviewвЂ¦. Read more Read more.

Wii U Bundle, because certain customers were complaining about pricing here on Amazon.com. Mario Kart Super Circuit. The Game Boy Advance was, in my mind at least, supposed to be a way I could play SNES games on the go. This was nowhere near as good as the. Play mario kart racing game and help everyones favourite plumber beat the rest of the nintendo characters as they speed towards the finish line in their souped up cars. Here's a new top 10 for you guys! This time we'll be counting down the BEST and WORST Mario Kart tracks. Don't forget to share your opinion on the ranking.
To appease the great Pecking Order, then, and to settle the debate it has thrust upon us once and for all, this is a list of Mario Kart games, ranked worst to best. So the ones at the top are the least amazing, while the one at the bottom is the most amazing. Note that this is my list. Not Stephen's, not Tina's, not Kirk's, not Jason's, not anyone's.
You got a problem with it, you take it up with me. Also note that, in the interests of inclusion, I've left out the arcade games, both for their similarities to existing titles and since so few of us (or you) will have played them. Mario Kart Wii. Eh. I thought the bikes were a bit naff, and the motion controls sucked.
Get past those, and the nostalgia factor of so many retro courses, and there's not much there that lives on in the memory. Not a bad game by any means, but up against this kind of world- beating competition, something had to come last. Mario Kart Super Circuit. The Game Boy Advance was, in my mind at least, supposed to be a way I could play SNES games on the go. This was nowhere near as good as the SNES Mario Kart. I am, however, one of the only people on Earth to actually like its visuals.

Instead, it was an almost perfect combination of nostalgia and pioneering features. It would take years for Nintendo to release another game this enjoyable when played online, an amazing feat considering this was released in 2. Super Mario Kart. Fuck you, Ghost Valley.
Mario Kart 7. It's almost as though Mario Kart Wii was a test, so that Nintendo could see what worked and what didn't when it came to the levels of innovation necessary in each Mario Kart game. Those lessons have since been applied, and they were first applied here, with the addition of long- overdue features like custom karts. Also, gliding: looked stupid in trailers, was awesome in the game. Mario Kart 8. Further proof that Nintendo has this down to a science.

Mario Kart Double Dash.
Remember, this is my list. Double Dash has its problems, sure. But it was so brave, and I love it for that. The co- op abilities gave the game's most basic act of driving around and throwing stuff a level of depth and tactics it hasn't seen since. It also has the single best collection of original tracks the series has ever seen, from the insanity of Baby Park to DK Mountain's strategic perfection to Mushroom Bridge's rush hour madness.
