Virginia saltwater fishing becomes more than just a pastime when May brings the spring weather back – it becomes a way of life. In the month of May, the anglers at and around Chesapeake bay begin to rejoice and congregate as the large game fish specimens begin to filter into the largest estuary in North America in numbers that seem like an impossibility. Most of the saltwater fishing anglers are looking to the south, where red and black drum are returning from winters in southern waters. However, there are still a number of individuals anxiously awaiting the migration of striped bass from the north to infuse the Bay with their great numbers.

Having just completed their yearly spawning rituals in the upper reaches of the Bay tributaries, this species return in mass quantities and sizes reaching 40 inches that make anglers giddy with anticipation. Of course, there are severe restrictions through the first six weeks of Virginia fishing for striped bass that make the early season difficult to comply with, considering the itchy feeling anglers get at the thought of reeling in a huge catch. From May 1st through the 15th, there is a Virginia fishing mandate on the stripers, limiting the catch to one fish per person with a minimum length of 32 inches. From the 16th through the 15th of June, the limit per person is two fish between 18 and 28 inches or one of this size accompanied by one fish at least 32 inches in length.

Fishing in Virginia in the early season is particularly good in the Smith Point area, located at the uppermost portion of Virginia’s western shore. This is a peninsula referred to as the Northern Neck, which is perfectly situated for the interception of the infuse of fish returning from the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers and Maryland’s bay waters after their spawning is completed. Interestingly enough, because of the setup of licenses for Virginia saltwater fishing and Maryland fishing, when the waters are cooler and striper don’t return to the southern waters as soon as normally expected, anglers from Virginia are allowed to fish the waters of Maryland, which are already quite productive in terms of quantity of striped bass available.

Trolling tends to be the most popular and productive method of saltwater fishing for striped bass, since they are moving rapidly and not holding in one place for long. Menhaden are the preferred bait, as well, and if fresh fish cannot be found, use lures that imitate these, including bucktails and spoons in similar sizes. Preferred coloring is white or chartreuse. You might first try the main shipping channel down the bay, where the water is warmer, trolling along the edges at staggered depths between the surface and twenty feet, though this is simply a suggestion and not a guarantee of productive Virginia saltwater fishing for stripers.

When an obsessed fan of Trish Stratus appeared on RAW on October 10th, 2005, little did anyone expect that she would one day surpass her idol and earn her 4th WWE Women’s Championship in less than three years.

Yet, on hindsight, who is really surprised? Mickie James is, after all, a femme fatale.

Hi, and welcome to the first edition of Femme Fatale, a column that appreciates the finer side of the wrestling world – the women. From WWE Divas to TNA Knockouts, from Joshi Puroresu to G.L.O.R.Y. Girls, I’ll feature the best from the past, present and I’ll even throw in some future predictions. But not every female wrestler qualifies as a femme fatale. No, for someone to be featured, they need to meet two major criteria.

Firstly, they have to be seductive. A true femme fatale is someone who can use her femininity as a weapon. She needs to be someone who is aware of how potent she can become in order to get what she wants, when she wants it. She is someone who charms those around her and uses them as she pleases.

Secondly, they have to be lethal. The femme fatale knows how to draw her targets into compromising, dangerous, sometimes even deadly situations. Moreover, she does it not in an obvious manner, but uses subterfuge to achieve her hidden agenda.

No one typifies the femme fatale more than Mickie James, the current WWE Women’s Champion. From the first moment we spotted her on WWE television, we knew she had what it took to achieve arguably the biggest prize in the industry. But let’s look at her six-year journey towards that first title reign.

Mickie Laree James was born August 31st, 1979 and began her professional wrestling career at the age of 20 as a valet to the likes of Tommy Dreamer and Julio Dinero. Calling herself Alexis Laree, she wasn’t simply content to be eye candy at ringside, getting physically involved in one match after another. She even helped Tommy Dreamer win the KYDA Pro Heavyweight Championship. Eventually, her love for the industry led her to get in the ring and compete against established opponents like Allison Danger and Lexie Fyfe, until the name Alexis Laree became associated with fast-paced, exciting wrestling in Maryland Championship Wrestling and other federations in the East Coast independent scene.

In the years that followed, having proven herself more than capable of attracting fans to shows that she was booked on, Alexis Laree began to win titles and cement her popularity. In 2001, she won a battle royal for the Southern Championship Wrestling Diva title. Less than two years later, Alexis Laree was hot property, winning numerous titles across several promotions. In fact, 2003 was a watershed year for the young professional wrestler. She not only became the first Cyberspace Wrestling Federation Women’s Champion, beating the likes of Serena and April Hunter, but also beating Billy Reil to win the Impact Championship Wrestling Junior Heavyweight Title! All in all, Alexis Laree held six different titles that year, most of them simultaneously.

But even greater things were to come for the young femme fatale. In April of 2003, Alexis Laree went for a WWE tryout match against her good friend Dawn Marie. The very next day, she was scheduled to appear on an NWA:TNA pay per view with Julio Dinero as part of Raven’s new group The Gathering in a now infamous Clockwork Orange House of Fun match. It was this involvement with Raven on a national level that truly propelled Alexis Laree further into the limelight and into the consciousness of the wrestling fanatics.

Having spent several months with TNA, Alexis Laree finally took the most important step in her career and had a tryout match with Dawn Marie before signing a developmental deal with the WWE in August 2003. She was immediately sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling, where she quickly stood out among the other female hopefuls, including Jillian Hall and Melina.

It was in OVW that Alexis Laree began to evolve the persona of Mickie James that we are all familiar with today. Her high energy, in-your-face attitude was exactly what RAW needed to spice up their roster that was getting a little stale from the boring Diva Search. Of course, it was hard not to notice her ridiculously short skirts that hid very little when she bounced around the ring, pulling her hair. Often, it was difficult to determine where her real personality ended and her kayfabe gimmick began. One thing is for sure: Mickie James is a true wrestling fan, who counts former WWE Diva Lita as one of her all-time favourites.

On RAW, however, it was Trish Stratus who received the honour of being paired with Mickie James. On October 10th, 2005, the future Women’s Champion made her first RAW appearance as the then-Women’s Champion’s biggest fan. In what might have been a subtle hint from the WWE to the many of its fans who can be a little intimidating when face-to-face with their favourite Superstars, the debuting Mickie James turned out to be too overwhelmed when given the opportunity to work with Trish Stratus.

Mickie James took her fandom to heights never seen before. At the start of the following month, during Fulfill Your Fantasy Diva Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday, she dressed up as Trish Stratus (complete with entrance music and fake title belt) and then went on to eliminate herself and Victoria in order to help Trish retain her title.

In the months that followed, Mickie James began to use moves like the Trish Kick, which she renamed the Mick Kick, as well as the Lou Thesz press that were signature moves of Trish Stratus. Ironically, though, during a #1 Contender’s Match on RAW in December 2005, Victoria was able to counter the Mick-a-Rana (yet another signature move borrowed from Trish) but was unable to defend against a vicious Standing Tornado DDT that was very much a Mickie James original.

With the win over Victoria, Mickie James was now the #1 Contender to the title held by Trish Stratus. In the weeks leading up to New Year’s Revolution, Mickie James started to play head games with her opponent and idol. Outside the ring, Mickie James followed her idol everywhere, and in a now infamous episode – kissed Trish Stratus beneath the mistletoe during the Christmas RAW episode. The following week, Mickie followed Trish even into the shower room, where she strategically held up a towel in order to catch a glimpse of her favourite Diva’s ***** body.

Despite all the psychological confusion between the two Divas, Trish Stratus was ultimately able to defend her title successfully at New Year’s Revolution. Nonetheless, Mickie James continued to subtly push for a ******* relationship with the Women’s Champion, much to the indignation of Ashley, who considered Trish a mentor figure.

Ashley warned Trish about Mickie, calling her a ‘psycho’, which only led to a jealous Mickie executing a series of vicious attacks on her “rival”. This culminated in a match at the 2006 Royal Rumble, where Mickie confessed her love for Trish, who was the special guest referee. Ultimately, Trish was forced to tell Mickie in March that they needed some time apart. Despite Mickie’s broken heart, she persevered and became Trish’s tag team partner at Saturday Night’s Main Event.

However, that night marked the turning point of Mickie’s infatuation with Trish, when she turned on her idol with a Mick Kick and gave her a taste of her own Stratusfaction. Mickie later said that Trish had broken her heart, and now she was going to break Trish.

So it was that at Wrestlemania 22, on the grandest stage of them all, Mickie James once again challenged Trish Stratus for the second time that year. The Women’s Championship was on the line, and unlike the New Year’s Revolution match, there was no love lost between the two competitors. It was a brutal match that saw both women take out months of frustration and emotional turmoil on each other. Mickie played her psychotic role well, taking sadistic pleasure in inflicting pain on her former idol. Amazingly enough, midway through the match, it was clear that Mickie’s intensity was resonating with the thousands in attendance. They began cheering with each offensive move that connected with the Women’s Champion as Mickie James slowly won their admiration.

Finally, it all came down to a huge powerbomb by Trish Stratus that threatened to end the epic match, but Mickie James kicked out and then delivered her patented Mick Kick to the head, knocking Trish semi-concious and allowing Mickie to pin her and win her first WWE Women’s Championship, much to the delight of her new fans.

Mickie’s career in the WWE following her first title reign has naturally seen its ups and downs. She lost the title later in 2006 to Lita, but her rising popularity resulted in a face turn. Following the retirement of Trish Stratus, she would once again feud with Lita over the title belt, wrestling in a series of matches before winning the title for a second time at Survivor Series. This also gave Mickie James the privilege of wrestling Lita’s final match in the WWE.

In 2007, as Women’s Champion, Mickie James was involved in a feud with her OVW rival, Melina which climaxed in the first ever Women’s Falls Count Anywhere Match in March. The following month, Mickie won her third title at a house show in Paris, only to lose it minutes later to Melina. That would be the closest that Mickie came to the title for most of the year.

On November 26, however, Mickie James defeated Melina in a #1 Contender’s match for the Women’s Championship, then held by “The Glamazon” Beth Phoenix, setting up a title match between the two at Armageddon, a match in which Beth Phoenix successfully defended her Women’s title.

It was around this time that rumours were going around that Ashley was supposed to receive a title push after Wrestlemania 24. However, because she was injury prone (she has had several surgeries on her ankle) it was widely believed that this push would have to be given to someone else.

In a roster that prized both looks as well as athleticism, only one credible face could become a suitable replacement. This was none other than Mickie James, who ironically replaced her one-time rival Ashley as the next Women’s Champion. Hindsight proved that this replacement could not have been timed better. Less than a month later, Ashley received some bad press about her former involvement in an online escort service.

So it was that, on the April 14th 2008 edition of RAW, held in London, Micke James defeated “The Glamazon” Beth Phoenix to win her fourth Women’s Championship.

This weekend, at Judgment Day, Mickie James faces what might arguably be her toughest challenge yet. A triple threat match with Melina and Beth Phoenix with the Women’s Title on the line. Will the four-time Women’s Champion prevail against such dangerous odds? Only time will tell. Yet we can be sure of one thing, Mickie James will not go down without a fight.

The man behind the Oakland Raiders was inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame on August 1, 1992. Raider’s owner Al Davis started his pro football coaching career four decades ago as assistant coach for the LA Chargers. The rest can be called as history since Davis went on to be the head coach and general manager of the Raiders from then on.

When he first took over the Oakland franchise, the team barely won any games in the first few seasons of the new American Football League. Because of this, he challenged himself to be the one to build one of the finest franchise in the league. The year 1966 was a big year for Davis when he became the Commissioner of the American Football League. It was also during this year that he became the principal owner and CEO of the Raiders. The legacy that Al Davis leaves for sports history is unparalleled in terms of winning and excellence.

Just like any other football hopeful, Davis started as a line coach at the Adelphi College in New York. He eventually went into the U.S. Army and was assigned as the head coach for football in Ft. Belvoir in Virginia. This was the first time that his great ability for coaching was seen by the public when he built a really powerful team to topple the National Collegiate Football Champions at that time – the University of Maryland. His career went further when he served the Baltimore Colts as a staff who concentrated on player personnel work. In 1955, he also worked as a line coach and chief recruiter at The Citadel. He also spent three years as a line coach at the University of Southern California.

Before being the Oakland Raiders head coach and general manager in 1963, Davis served as the offensive end coach for the LA Chargers for two years. When he started coaching the Raiders, the team got an impressive 10-4 record. Because of this feat, Davis was named Coach of the Year by several publications and his fellow coaches. He further made history with the nine-win turnaround in one season. Also, he was the first sports man recognized by the Oakland Chamber of Commerce when he was selected as the Young Man of the Year.

When he was commissioner of the AFL, he was thought to be the driving force who made the merger between the AFL and NFL possible. His presence in the NFL Competition Committee and NFL Owners Executive Committee made a significant bearing on the overall development of the game. He also became the first recipient of the NFL Players Association’s Retired Players Award of Excellence.

With these achievements, it can easily be said that Al Davis indeed is one heck of a sportsman. And he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame more than any one else. It’s amazing how one man can make such a big difference in the world of football. Even more amazing is how Al Davis have accomplished these feats in his lifetime.

Sitting on the Atlantic Coast, bordered by New Hampshire, Vermont, New York State and Connecticut, the state of Maryland is regarded as the wealthiest of all in the United States of America. The average household income in Maryland, which has a population of around five and three quarter million is around sixty five thousand dollars. Science and technology is where the Maryland earns these big bucks, as well as transportation from its docks to the large population and manufacturing centers along the East Coast. Total state income is a staggering $250 billion dollars annually. Sounds like paradise? Well it could be, except for the fact that there is no casino gambling in Maryland. Well at least not for the time being.

Yet let us not detract from the achievements and attractions of this state which is steeped in history. Its capitol, Annapolis sings out the founding of the country with its fabulously classic Colonial architecture and its immaculately preserved 18th century waterfront. A must for any visitor to the state is the US Naval Academy and its museum.

Much of the states population resides in and around the city of Baltimore, the financial and business center of the state. Major tourist attractions around Baltimore are the scene of the Antietam National Battlefield as well as the National Cemetery at Sharpsburg. Frederick and St. Mary’s City are two famous historic towns where visitors can take a step back in time to the colonial era. The famous and picturesque Chesapeake Bay is situated on Maryland’s eastern shores and its many estuaries and rivers provide is a veritable haven for lovers of sea food. Maryland proudly boasts the longest waterfronts in the United States, dotted with an endless stream of restaurants serving up freshly caught and cooked fare that the sea can offer.

Marylanders are great horse racing enthusiasts. Many of them attend the annual Preakness and Pimlico Cup horse races in Baltimore as well as many more out of state visitors flock to these traditional sporting events. The strange fact is that until the late sixties, casino gambling was legal in the state and was fairly active and enjoyed by many. In 1973, a state lottery was introduced and has proved highly popular, bringing with it sizeable revenues. There is also gambling on horse racing and greyhound racing events held on a regular basis, where betting is allowed trackside.

People who want to play table games such as Blackjack, Roulette or Craps as well as slots have two simple choices: one travel to one of the neighboring states for some live casino action, or two, to gamble online in the comfort and security of their own home. Neither of these prospects appears to be too daunting for the cash rich Marylanders. However the hope is that forward thinking legislators will wake up and realize that the cash that is flowing out of the state can be returned. This can be done by taking the simple step of allowing the opening of land based casinos where the hard working population of the state can spend their leisure time as they see fit, whilst contributing to the state funds.
