Antoine Walker lost his $110 million to wild, extravagant living. His NBA championship ring was sold at auction and he had to declare bankruptcy nearly half decade ago. James is still earning money, just sold a $13.4 million mansion in Florida, owns a 30,000 square foot mega mansion in Ohio, and just bought a $21 million vacation home in Brentwood. Hopefully he has a better backup plan for retirement than Walker did, because Antoine Walker once had homes and goods like that, too.

One of the most touching goodbyes that was created in his honor was the TV show The Walking Dead 's season 8 premier being dedicated to the man himself which was even more powerful knowing that the premier was the tv show 's 100th episode (Greg Nicotero – Executive Producer / Director / Special FX Make-Up Designer.). Anybody that contributed their creativity to the world of the zombie could be the one to pick up George Romero 's legacy where he left off, but Greg Nicotero is possibly the one person who contributed to it the most. Nicotero was born on March 15th, 1963 and he 's a native to Pittsburgh, PA. Nicotero married, then divorced,

When you talk about the greatest films of all time you have to mention The Shawshank Redemption. This film is at the top of IMDB’s top 250 list, ranking in at number one above films like The Dark Knight and the all time classic The Godfather. This movie is so appealing in so many ways, in my opinion it is ranked number one because of the fact that it hits the Christian aspect, has a character you can feel for and of course has a satisfying ending. But thats not what I am going to be focusing this paper on. I wanted to focus this paper on three key scenes that we did discuss in class
Most quarterbacks, at any level, would have been nervous, but what Montana did, in the biggest game of the year, really shows how he earned the nickname Joe Cool. Joe Montana had great stats for an NFL quarterback. He may not have the best stats of all time compared to today 's players, but when he was done playing they were some of the best ever. In just 10 seasons of twelve games or more, he threw for over 40,500 passing yards, including passing for 300 yards in a single game thirty nine times, six of those times in the postseason. That was an NFL record when he retired, as was his passing for 300+ yards in five consecutive games.
There are many age old debates in nerd culture, Marvel vs DC, Mac Vs PC, weather or not Han shot first. But none so vicious is Star Wars Vs Star Trek. This 39 year sparring match is less of a fight and more of a death match with fans of both biting at each other to do dawn supremacy over one another. Both of these flagship franchises have advantiges and disadvatiges which make them equal in most rights. Star Trek started in 1966, a full 13 years before George Lucas’s flagship film “Star Wars” was viewed on screen.
A great example of a segment of pop culture that you cannot hope to get away from is the Star Wars franchise, especially with the release of the new movie. I cannot remember another event in my life that has been more milked than Star Wars, and it seems that everyone is hoping to suck the teat as dry as possible. To give our fair readers an example of what I am talking about, The Force Awakens alone is set to generate over $5 billion in merchandise sales in its first year and much more to come, and with ridiculous items such as the $28,000 Star Wars themed watch. Needless to say it 's set to dominate the charts for years. There is a near unlimited amount of products that have been plying for your attention using the Star Wars name, such
Several differences and similarities will be discussed in this essay, such as how Star Wars is more about fighting evil and Star Trek is more about keeping the peace throughout the universe. Star Wars begins with a story setting that was revolutionary during its time with aliens, spaceships, and blasters. The characters deal with conflict with good versus evil. In the Star Wars trilogy, there is an underlying energy or "force" that brings one to either the light or dark side. The "Energy" relates to one choosing which path, good or evil.
