Carlos Correra Open To Stint With Houston Texans - RealGM Wiretap
Carlos Correa set the internet ablaze over the weekend when he tackled Jose Altuve following a walk-off hit for the Astros.
"I always take it easy on [Altuve]," said Correa about the tackle. "So, everything we do is just having fun. We're like brothers, and when you're brothers, you play around a lot, and that's what we do all the time."

?? The City of New York's Medical Examiner Report concluded that Heath Ledger's cause of death was "the result of acute intoxication by the combine effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine". Recent investigations and medical warnings have concentrated on the lethal combination of prescription drugs such as narcotic analgesics and sleeping aids. However, the medical community have ignored - and have been ignoring for some time - the underlying prescription drug class that often leads to habitual drug dependency with dangerous lethal consequences. Two of the drugs listed on Ledger's report are the most insidious, potentially dangerous asics gel lyte v womens uk , highly prescribed and, yet, the most overlooked and under-estimated by doctors. These drugs can start the chain reaction that potentially leads to Vicodin or sleeping pill abuse. The first time I saw Heath Ledger, it was by accident. My date and later to-be husband, Nick, took me to see 'The Sixth Sense', finally succumbing to peer pressure to guess 'the big surprise ending'. By now, 'The Sixth Sense' was off the major theatre chain circuit and only screening in small suburban independent theatres, which led us to experience one of those now rare events: a double-feature matinee. The first movie was '10 Things I Hate About You'. Well passed 'teen' movies, even those with Shakespearian-based scripts, we shyly admitted to liking '10 Things'. Wow asics gel lyte v mens sale , I really like the male lead, what was his name? "He's Australian, you know", replied Nick. And in typical Aussie-fashion, I was doubly impressed and now stupidly filled with national pride. Another brilliant Australian up-and-comer to join the rapidly increasing queue to grace Hollywood screens. Years later, I would often grab the DVD to fill a cheerless afternoon and find myself watching and rewinding the same scene. Over and over and over again. My secret guilty pleasure. Heath sliding down the pole, microphone in hand, singing "You're just too good to be true, can't take my eyes off of you ..." The brass band kicks in. And that charmingly defiant half-run, half-prancing across the school steps. The scene is brilliant. It's inexplicable. He simply has that old-fashioned 'it' factor . I'm not a star-struck fan and was never one of those teenagers with movie-star idol posters plastered all over my bedroom walls, but this kid's got talent. And then came those scene-stealing roles that totally blew us away. The Patriot. Monster's Ball. And finally leading-man status and an Academy Award nomination. By now asics gel lyte v mens uk , we were just used to having another famous Australian up there with the rest of the world's great talent churning out an endless array of diverse, yet illustrious film roles. We had no idea. It was not endless. It ended on 22 January 2008. When people who I've never met but greatly admire die, I'm sad. But I've never cried before. I have never before felt that heart wrenching overwhelming shock that lasted for days after I heard the news. This time it was somehow more personal. As soon as I read the detailed list of the first report of his deathbed scene, I intuitively knew how he died. Ten days later the final medical examiner's report confirmed my suspicions. Hollywood is 'Xanax-city'. Feeling down, pop a Xanax. Feeling stressed, pop a Xanax. Need to perform at your very best, pop a Xanax. A-list stars feel the pressure to provide A-grade performances when working on multi-million dollar films. There's too much money at stake. The intense stress, both internal and external, is immeasurable. The studios are risking billions, paying the stars millions, and the actors are unnaturally subjected to more pressure than we mere mortals can imagine. Heath Ledger asics gel lyte v uk sale , himself, admitted that after the worldwide release of 'A Knight's Tale' with its instant paparazzi-bulb-flashing stardom, his stress levels increased ten-fold. Xanax is the trade name of the generic anti-anxietytranquilliser prescription drug, alprazolam, listed in Ledger's toxicity report. The other anti-anxiety drug was diazepam, or more commonly known as Valium. These drugs are from a class of commonly prescribed tranquillisers known as benzodiazepines or simply referred to as benzos. According to the latest National Health Study, approximately 10 mil.
