Egypt vs Algeria November 18 Live: An Egypt and Algeria Soccer Game is Exciting

Egypt vs. Algeria November 18 live is upon us.  The Egypt and Algeria soccer game is exciting for fans wishing to see the two Arabian-African countries compete.  The World Cup qualifier between Egypt and Algeria took place in Sudan.  The November 18 live match was so anticipated and represents such a strong rivalry that, according to BBC News, 15,000 Sudanese police were deployed to the soccer game to deter violence.

After the Egypt/Algerian tie, 32 people were hurt and businesses throughout Algiers were destroyed. After Saturday’s tie, a game was set up for today in the Sudanese capitol.

The head of the Algerian football federation told BBC that his Egyptian counterpart is to blame for all the anticipated violence.  He stated “He is the origin of all the events that occurred, including the barbaric aggression that injured… our players”

Of course, it takes two to tango.  What’s no surprise is that the World Cup qualifying match was highly anticipated by both sides. To play in the World Cup means that your soccer team is one of the best in the whole world.  The 2010 World Cup is special because it is the first event of this magnitude to ever take place on the African continent.

Who won the Egypt and Algeria Soccer Game live on November 18?  Algeria did.  They qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa by beating Egypt 1-0.  The head of the Algerian football federation is probably sitting in his chair grinning and thinking about how karma got the best of his rival opponent Egypt.

Is ‘90210’ actor Tristan Wilds dating Rihanna?

Singer Rihanna was recently spotted with “90210” actor Tristan Wilds, sparking rumors that the two are dating.

Wilds, who plays Dixon Wilson on the CW teen drama, was seen at a party at Rihanna’s house over the weekend in Los Angeles, according to the New York Daily News.

“No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party — it was very intimate. But everyone quickly realized they weren’t meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see,” a source told the New York Daily News.

“He’s a real gentleman,” the source added. “She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up.”

Rihanna, 21, and Wilds, 20, were apparently introduced by a music producer who has worked with both of them, as Wilds is currently working on his own album, according to reports.

Rihanna has recently been in the news discussing her alleged beating by ex-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown.

Miss Universe Threesome Sex Tape Video: Both Miss Tobago & Trinidad Featured in Sex Tape

The Miss Universe threesome sex tape video is hot just like the Carrie Prejean sex tape video.  The threesome sex tape video features both Miss Tobago and Miss Trinidad, Tobago’s boyfriend, and another unidentified female.  Originally, it was assumed that Miss Japan was the third female, but her boyfriend has denied that claim.

There’s something in the water at the beauty pageants that makes Miss Universe contestants strip their clothes and start acting all steamy.  That’s okay – the Internet eats it all up.  TMZ reported earlier today that not only does the Carrie Prejean sex tape scandal exist, now there’s another threesome sex tape video featuring a hardcore encounter between two Miss Universe contestants.

Wyatt Gallery had the files on his computer. He assumes that the threesome sex tape video was stolen when his computer was in the repair shop. Why he didn’t back up and then erase the file before sending the computer for repairs is questionable.

Both Miss Trinidad and Miss Tobago were not titleholders when the hardcore threesome sex tape was made.  The photographer was not a Miss Universe photographer so the pageant has avoided involvement in a steamy sex scandal.

Former Miss USA Kelli McCarty stared in her own film produced by Vivid Entertainment, the same company that wants to make Carrie Prejean MILLIONS on her sex tape video.

Maybe the former Miss USA contestants will be a little smarter than Carrie Prejean and sell their hardcore threesome sex tape video to Vivid Entertainment.

Best Buy Black Friday Deals 2009: Black Friday Deals 2009 at Best Buy are Amazing

Best Buy Black Friday Deals 2009 are hot.  Best Buy is a hotspot for many Black Friday 2009 shoppers.  Although Walmart boasts the most anticipation over 2009 Black Friday deals available on the biggest shopping day of the year, Best Buy and Target are close runners in the competition.

If you are in the market for a laptop, you need to head on over to Best Buy this year.  A Compaq netbook with 160 GB hard drive is only $179.99.  To give you an idea of what a great bargain this is, I recently purchased an HP Mini for $300. At the time, I thought that was a great deal. If you need a 250 GB hard drive, there’s a similar model for $229.99, which is still a great Best Buy Black Friday 2009 deal.

If you are an Apple lover, Best Buy Black Friday deals 2009 don’t leave you out in the cold.  You can purchase a MacBook for $999.99 with a $150 gift card.  An iPod touch 3rd generation is only $199.99 with a free $30 gift card to boot.

Need a new digital camera? Best Buy will hook you up with some awesome deals during the 2009 sales.  A Kodak EasyShare digital camera WITH a 7” digital photo frame is only $109.99.  A Nikon 10.2 megapixel camera is only $499.99.  A Sony cybershot will run you $119.97, and comes with a spiffy case.

TV deals are also available at Best Buy.  Although it will be hard to beat Walmart’s $598 50” Sanyo, you can buy a 50” 1080p Samsung HDTV for $897.77.  Remember – Walmart’s Sanyo is only 720p. A similar Samsung 720p is available for $697.

Although many consumers are heading to Walmart first, at least consider running over to Best Buy – especially if you need electronics.  Their Black Friday 2009 deals are amazing, and will help you have an affordable Christmas.

Black Friday Walmart Ad 2009: Ad at Walmart Gives Best Black Friday 2009 Deals

The Black Friday Walmart Ad 2009 has been anticipated for days. The Black Friday Walmart Ad 2009 has great deals.  Walmart’s Black Friday deals are going to please even the pickiest of shoppers.  The best Deal at Walmart is a 50 inch Sanyo Plasma 720p HDTV for $598.

Of course, 720p isn’t the highest resolution supported by HDTVs. However, in my home I have both a 720p and a 1080p TV.  The 720p is crystal clear, and the only time you can really see a difference is when you are watching a Blu-Ray disc.

Need a Blu-Ray? Walmart’s Black Friday sales are going to hook you up there, too. You can get a Blu-Ray player for $78 on Black Friday.

Not sure how to get home from Walmart? While you are there, pick up a $59 TomTom.  I must tell you, I purchased a TomTom when they first came out, and paid over $200.  It was one of the best gadgets I have ever bought.

The Black Friday Walmart Ad 2009 also includes $7 reversible fleece jackets and $3 children’s sleepwear.  If you were lucky enough to purchase a BlackBerry handset for $99 with a $100 Walmart gift card recently, Black Friday is the day to use that card and get more for your money.

The Walmart Black Friday ad has gotten the most attention.  Consumers are looking to Walmart to get the best deal for their money this shopping season.  Walmart is keeping stores open 24 hours on Thanksgiving to help with crowd control on Black Friday. This is in response to last year’s trampling death of a temporary worker.
