SOCCER GAME: Atletico Madrid VS Real Madrid
Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid played out a hard-fought game that ended with a 0-0 score in the Vicente Calderon Stadium, leaving their two legged UEFA Champions League quarter-final finely poised ahead of next week. The teams are two of the stronger teams in the world. Gareth Bale and Antoine came closest to scoring a goal, but they missed too many chances to win the game.
The game was very aggressive and violent between the two teams because both of the teams wanted to win the game, and because the game was very violent and aggressive the referee had to take out many yellow cards. The Referee suspended Mario Suarez and Marcelo for next week's Champions League quarter final second leg. Atletico Madrid midfielder Mario Suarez complained about the referee by saying he is a "very bad ref" in the Champions League draw with Real Madrid. The teams will be facing each other again next week, hopefully it will be a better game and a clean and friendly game. The game will be on Wednesday, April 22 at 02:45PM (N/Y TIME)

I still remember my dad teaching me and my brother how to play Backgammon. At first I was like, 'this board looks a bit crazy, I think I'd rather just play my Nintendo 64, thanks'. But after beating my (older) brother for the first time, I just couldn't shake the sweet nectar of success, and so developed a rivalry that almost tore a sibling relationship apart...
SO. If you fancy giving a hiding in Backgammon to your mates on Smeet, you can now do it for FREE! It's just been released today, so get playing and the Smeeting bragging rights could be yours soon enough (just don't rub it in your opponents face too much, prompting him to get you in a headlock and consequently getting you both in trouble with mum. Stay humble people.).
For those that don't know the rules, here is a little crash-course for beginners! :-
To start the game, each player rolls one die, and the player with the higher number moves first using the numbers shown on both dice. The players then alternate turns, rolling two dice at the beginning of each turn.
After rolling the dice, players must, if possible, move their checkers according to the number shown on each die. For example, if the player rolls a 6 and a 3 (notated as "6-3"), the player must move one checker six points forward, and another or the same checker three points forward. The same checker may be moved twice, as long as the two moves can be made separately and legally: six and then three, or three and then six. If a player rolls two of the same number, called doubles, that player must play each die twice. For example, a roll of 5-5 allows the player to make up to four moves of five spaces each. On any roll, a player must move according to the numbers on both dice if it is at all possible to do so. If one or both numbers do not allow a legal move, the player forfeits that portion of the roll and his/her turn ends. If moves can be made according to either one die or the other, but not both, the higher number must be used. If one die is unable to be moved, but such a move is made possible by the moving of the other die, that move is compulsory.
In the course of a move, a checker may land on any point that is unoccupied or is occupied by one or more of the player's own checkers. It may also land on a point occupied by exactly one opposing checker, or "blot". In this case, the blot has been "hit", and is placed in the middle of the board on the bar that divides the two sides of the playing surface. A checker may never land on a point occupied by two or more opposing checkers; thus, no point is ever occupied by checkers from both players simultaneously. There is no limit to the number of checkers that can occupy a point at any given time.
When all of a player's checkers are in that player's home board, that player may start removing them; this is called "bearing off". A roll of 1 may be used to bear off a checker from the 1-point, a 2 from the 2-point, and so on. A die may not be used to bear off checkers from a lower-numbered point unless there are no checkers on any higher points. For example, if a player rolls a 6 and a 5, but has no checkers on the 6-point and two on the 5-point, then the 6 and the 5 must be used to bear off the two checkers from the 5-point. When bearing off, a player may also move a lower die roll before the higher even if that means the full value of the higher die is not fully utilized. For example, if a player has exactly one checker remaining on the 6-point, and rolls a 6 and a 1, the player may move the 6-point checker one place to the 5-point with the lower die roll of 1, and then bear that checker off the 5-point using the die roll of 6; this is sometimes useful tactically. As before, if there is a way to fully use the moves showing on the dice, by moving checkers within the home board and/or bearing them off, the player must do so.
Holy Smeet, you say, that sound's complicated. It's actually easier then it sounds, so I suggest you give it a try and you should pick it up pretty quickly!
