Norwegian Sports Superstar Accompanied by Beauty on the WSOP

Norwegian sportsman and national hero Petter Northug is participating in the 2010 WSOP – and his spectacular girlfriend has also come along.

Northug (24) is world-class cross country skier with 9 world cup winnings and 7 additional podiums, but most notably double Olympic Champion (along with one silver and one bronze medals) of the Vancouver Olympic Games 2010. He won the 50 km classic and, with Øystein Pettersen, the team sprint races.

In addition, he has several champion titles from the Norwegian National Championships, the FIS (Fédération Internationale de Ski - International Ski Federation) Nordic World Ski Championships as well as from the Junior variant of the latter. Northug is a sports hero of Norway, and thus received considerable media attention upon entering the 2010 WSOP.

No less were the reporters interested in his girlfriend, Rachel Nordtømme, an athlete herself, whom they considered to be “possibly the breast Girl on the Rail we've seen at the 2010 WSOP.” Indeed, the spectacle is worthy of the hype, and so are a number of other players’ sweethearts.

Phil Hellmuth – In and Out

Once again, Phil Hellmuth felt he needed some extra attention when he enters the Main Event of the WSOP, and this year he decided he would dress up as ’The Ultimate Fighter’. Below, you can see his more-than-ridiculous entrance video. I just wonder how UB give their name to such an outright corny act?

Introducing One of the Best Inventions in the World

Andes, being one of the leading beer brands in Argentina, has now come up with an idea never seen before. They have invented a special booth, called the Teletransporter.

The Teletransporter will make Argentinian men’s lives much easier from now on. They will not have to argue with their girlfriends or family about going to the bar again.

This is how it works:

Let’s say you’re at a bar, having drinks with your friends and your phone suddenly starts ringing. It is your girlfriend and ONCE AGAIN you forgot you were supposed to have dinner with her parents. The solution is as easy as it can get: just step into the Teletransporter situated in the corner of the bar, choose a suitable environment (the hospital, for example) and answer the phone. All you have to do is make up a relative with a serious illness that you are visiting and the Teletransporter will handle the rest. How comfortable is that?

Volcano Wristwatch Inspired by Eyjafjallajökull Eruption

Romain Jerome only needed one month after the eruption of the Icelandic volcano to put his own design into a wristwatch. The Eyjafjallajökull-DNA is a completely absurd piece, the dial and its decorations are made of real ash and rocks retrieved from the erupting volcano and in case you doubt the authenticity of the rocks, a certificate is supplied with each watch sold, ensuring ‘quality’. The hands symbolize airplanes avoiding the lava storm, and as always, there are no numbers to guide us with the time.

Volcano DNA Watch

With its lava bubble indent and all the harsh and gloomy-looking material, this watch is not a Rolex, rather a monster on steroids. This is where it begs the question: Who the hell is going to buy this?

Take That Phil Hellmuth :-)

Although Phil Hellmuth certainly dominated the poker world scene from the eighties until the beginning of the 21st century, his popularity these days lacks that of a truly respected poker professional. With the combination of his claims to be the best in the world and his constant childish behavior, he has become increasingly difficult to bear and tolerate.

So when it comes to a chance to see Phil Hellmuth fall flat on his face you can rest assure that there will be no lack of spectators lining-up to poke fun at him. This was the case in a recently non aired episode of the popular PokerStars show ‘The Big Game’.

Phil Hellmuth

In the episode which is still waiting to be aired on TV, it shows how the poker amateur Ernest Wiggins (the Loose Cannon) had a lucky strike in his hand to humiliate Phil Hellmuth by crushing him.

The videoclip named Pojat On Poikii featuring Elastinen & Spekti was published yesterday by Rähinä Records and was made by Uniikikki, a well known Finnish rap band.
