American Gladitors reinvented for Epiphany

NBC is reinventing the classic competition series American Gladiators and is currently filming a brand new series with new Contenders and a new team of Gladiators for their upcoming premiere season. Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali ( Muhammad Ali's daughter ) will be the brand new hosts for the series which airs 6th January 2008 on NBC . That day is Epiphany (Greek: επιφάνεια, "appearance" or "manifestation") - a Christian feast intended to celebrate the "shining forth" or revelation of God to mankind in human form, in the person of Jesus. Some Christians commemorate the visitation of the Magi to the child Jesus on this day, while others use the day to commemorate the baptism of Jesus as an adult.

Generation X-mas

America has a new favorite Christmas movie: A Christmas Story, the 1983 tale about Ralphie (Peter Billingsley), a 9-year-old in 1940s Indiana, and his lust for a Red Ryder air rifle. And it's overtaking Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol and the rest. This is one of those little pop-cultural shifts--football overtakes baseball, salsa defeats ketchup--that signal bigger changes: here, in the relationship between the community and the individual. In a traditional Christmas story, the larger holiday is a social good. Read more at

Blogs in Plain English

lemon from Church 2.0 - the blog is reminded that there are still a number of folks who don't share appreciation of the medium "weblog" and thus recomends watching "Blogs in Plain English". With the help of blogs, "a sports star can share news with fans". That's Church 2.0 at its best.

Sporting Hanukkah

During these days of Hanukkah some will receive one box that needs no unwrapping: a tzedakah box , used to collect coins for a good cause. Tzedakah (Hebrew: צדקה) is a Hebrew word most commonly translated as charity, though it is based on a root meaning justice (צדק). The Jewish Museum Shop offers the pictured tzedakah box. It features a collage of antique sports images and words. A nice gift for the bar mitzvah boy or sports enthusiast. via
