You can bet on almost every aspect of a contest from who is going to win to who scores first, the overall combined score, what round a boxer will knock out his opponent, and even whether the coin toss will yield heads or tails. A very generic breakdown of online sports betting and online sports wagering: sports handicapping is a system of taking two or more competing teams/individuals and providing a "level playing field" on which gamblers can bet the outcome of the event. Sports handicapping can be expressed in the form of points or odds. Odds can be defined as the odds of a team winning a game, series, championship etc. Points are the amount of points a team is going to win the game by (not just win the game, but by how many).

    The games that we play today are virtually the same games we played ninety years ago with a few exceptions. The first difference is the equipment we play with. The second difference is the skill level of the players. The third and possibly most important difference is integration of the games. If you take away the new equipment, and the players skill levels you still have the same game with the same basic principle. However, if you take away the integration of the game you would take away a whole other dimension that people of different race have brought to the game we play. Golfers would still be driven balls without tees. Players like Hank Aaron, Tiger Woods, and Muhammad Ali would never have rewritten the record books. Most importantly, however, these players of other races would still be playing in obscurity never being recognized for the greatness of their athletic ability. On this web page, we will examine the change in sports

    Athletic Facilities
    Browse Images MSU athletes compete and perform in a number of athletic facilities, past and present, from the Armory and Jenison Fieldhouse to College Field and Spartan Stadium. The Armory, completed in 1886, was originally the only sports facility for indoor team competitions, in addition to gymnastics, boxing, wrestling and other sports, plus other non-sports activities, such as drill hall and ballroom. In 1930 Demonstration Hall was inaugurated, only to be replaced by Jenison Field house, built in 1939, with a seating capacity of 10,000. For five decades Jenison was the arena for basketball and other indoor sports. In the mid 1980s plans were underway to build a completely new sports arena for more than 30 million dollars. The new facility was expected to accommodate more than 15,000 spectators. Named after the university vice president, Jack Breslin, who had been a baseball, football and basketball star for MSU in the 1940s, the arena opened in the fall of 1989 at the cost of 43 million dollars. In 2000 right after the MSU Spartans basketball team won the National Championship, the university announced a $5.9 million addition to the Breslin Center. On Saturday October 11, 1924 Michigan Agriculture College Stadium or "College Field" was dedicated, in a game where the Aggies faced the University of Michigan Wolverines. The state governor, the presidents of M.A.C. and U. of M. delivered inaugural speeches for the occasion. The stadium replaced the Old College Field and could accommodate 14,000 spectators. The original building has been practically rebuilt in three different occasions. In the first time -in 1935- its name was changed to Macklin Field, with renovations that increased fan capacity to 26,000. Thirteen years later, in 1948, the second rebuilding would take place, and the facility's name was changed to Macklin Stadium, with accommodation for 51,000 people. In 1956 the stadium underwent yet another significant transformation and became Spartan Stadium with capacity for 76,000 spectators.

    30. The Greatest Sports Year: 1991
    Sports Illustrated has claimed 1998 as the greatest sports year in history, and it seems most people agree. Wel they can have it. Here is why 1991 is greater than 1998.
    The Greatest Sports Year: 1991
    Sports Illustrated magazine, just after 1998 was safely in the rear-view mirror, said that that year was the greatest sports year ever. Ninety-eight was a phenomenal year, sure, with two sluggers chasing the greatest record in sports and Michael Jordan exiting basketball with a championship-winning shot. But it's possible that 1998 was not even the best sports year in its decade. The year of 1991 was a better sports year than 1998, and the best way to prove it is to go sport by sport. If you like college football confusion, you'll love either 1991 or 1998. Ninety-one both began and ended in split national titles (Colorado/Georgia Tech and Miami/Washington). The sportswriters and the coaches agreed for the next few years, but they split again in early 1998, declaring both Nebraska and Michigan the champion. By the end of the year, the Rose Bowl joined the new and controversial Bowl Championship Series, which crowned Tennessee as its unlikely champion. For the college basketball fan, there is no question that 1991 was a better year than 1998. After Duke had lost to UNLV in the 1990 NCAA final by a record margin, Hurley, Laettner, Hill, and company met Johnson, Augmon, Anthony, and Hunt in a national semifinal that was one of the greatest games ever played. After winning 79-77, the Blue Devils defeated Kansas to win their first national title. Earlier in the tournament, March Madness was redefined as a 15 seed defeated a mighty number 2 (Richmond over Syracuse, 73-69). In 1998, by comparison, Kentucky came back to defeat Utah to end an NCAA tournament that was good but not great.

    Some known ancient cultural relics have provided evidence that health-building activities appeared in China over 4,000 years ago. By the time of the Western Zhou Dynasty (1066-771 BC) archery and cauldron lifting had emerged as sports activities in their own right. To get a complete and vivid picture of the development of ancient China's sports, go to the China Sports Museum, which lies in the southeastern corner of the National Olympic Sports Center in the northern suburbs of Beijing. It is an octagonal spiral building flanked on one side by a huge sloping wall with its highest point protruding out of the center of the structure. The huge wall, 36.5 meters high and looking like a large flag or a mountain peak reaching up to the sky, symbolizes the pinnacle that China's athletes reach for. Displayed in its six exhibition halls are over 1,000 photos, 800 objects, 300 historical documents and cultural relics, 30 sand table models and 20 rubbings and paintings reflecting China's more than 5,000 years of sports culture and many sports activities of her 56 ethnic groups.

    Sports The History and Evolution
    Overview Though for many sports today is just another part of their daily lives, it is easy to forget that just 120 years ago, many of the sports we take for granted did not yet exist, and those that did would be barely recognizable to the modern sports audience. The history of modern sports details an evolution, from games played primarily for entertainment and leisure to an industry rivaling any other in size and power.
    Popular Culture Influence With that evolution came an increase in influence. Sports over the last hundred years has affected modern popular culture and has often reflected changing social attitudes and standards. Sports has also seen advances in techniques and achievements in records and levels that reflect the commitment by sportsman, sportswomen and training to be the best. Fashions now often reflect sports clothing, partly because of the money injected into sports by fashion houses and partly because of our desire to emulate our heroes and heroines.
    Politics Along with an increase in influence over popular culture has come an increase in political influence. This can include athletes using their fame to run for office, office-seekers using athletes to boost their candidacy, boycotts to boost causes – most famously the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and most recently the immigration law passed in Arizona – and using sports as a way to reach certain demographics.

    English Bar Billiards
    The similarity of Bar Billiards with Bagatelle , a game that was very popular for more than a century after 1770 is so evident that it seems highly likely that Bar Billiards is a derivative of Bagatelle via some lineage but that lineage is, at present, unknown. For more information on this earlier game, please visit the separate page on the history of Bagatelle Beyond that assumed and mysterious connection, it isn't known how Bar Billiards originated but in the early 1930s an Englishman called David Gill observed a game called Russian Billiards (Billiard Russe) being played in Belgium. A Russian link is therefore a possibility but it seems more likely that the game was named so as to sound slightly exotic to the ears of West Europeans at the time (in the same way as for Chinese Checkers and Polish Draughts There are a number of variations in table sizes and rules. The Jersey tables were apparently
