Tony Hawk is the MJ of skating. He practically made the fad a sport and then into an empire. XGames should pay him a royalty check. Just when you thought he was done, somehow the folks at Sony got him doing tricks. Not your run of the mill tricks either. Hawk did what is pretty much physically impossible for anyone other than him. He did this trick for a recent ad for the Sony Action Cam. What is the trick you ask? Tony Hawk successfully skated the world’s first horizontal loop. You are provided a first-person view of the whole thing since Hawk wore the Sony Action Cam doing the incredible trick.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Fantasy sports constituted illegal gambling, misled customers & is intended to fleece sports fans.
“Our investigation has found that, unlike traditional fantasy sports, daily fantasy sports companies are engaged in illegal gambling under New York law, causing the same kinds of social and economic harms as other forms of illegal gambling, and misleading New York consumers. Daily fantasy sports is neither victimless nor harmless, and it is clear that DraftKings and FanDuel are the leaders of a massive, multi-billion-dollar scheme intended to evade the law and fleece sports fans across the country. Today we have sent a clear message: not in New York, and not on my watch.”
This action comes after an investigation into DraftKings and FanDuel. The investigation started because Ethan Haskell a DraftKings employee employee used his access to inside information had won $350,000 playing at rival company FanDuel. Of course DraftKings and FanDuel did not agree with Schneiderman’s order.
A DraftKings said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman “took such hasty action today, particularly since he did not take any time to understand our business or why daily fantasy sports are clearly a game of skill. A politician telling hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers they are not allowed to play a game they love and share with friends, family, co-workers and players across the country.”
