    • 3. The origin of this phrase is thought to originate from Revelation 13:18 (KJV): Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. These words are usually thought of as pointing to some specific man who fits into the prophecy in the previous verses. _____ _____ _______. It’s 666. Now, if you understand the prophecy, figure out who this man is. One popular interpretation in ancient times was that Nero Caesar was the man whose number is 666. In ancient Greek and Hebrew, every letter of the alphabet also served as a numeral, and thus had a numerical value. Consequently every word, phrase, or name had a numerical value which was the sum of the letter values. And it was believed that one could learn something about the essence of a god or a man by looking at the number of his name, and comparing it to words and phrases that have the same number. The first recorded use of this phrase is in Dickens’ Bleak House, published in 1853. In modern day sports, this phrase is a slang used, mainly in basketball and American football when a particular person is constantly countering/defending/attacking successfully an opposition player. In such a case, the first person is said to ______ the other person’s ______

After WWII, he started at Wimbledon as a Czechoslovakian but chose to defect 1949 to Egypt in 1949, before becoming a British citizen in 1959.

A former world no.1 in tennis, he was also a silver medalist in ice hockey at the 1948 Olympics wherein he scored 9 goals in 8 matches. He also won the World Championships in 1947 with the Czechoslovakian ice hockey team.
    • 6. X – the national sport of Russia was a precursor to modern ice hockey and is still a popular sport in some European and Asian countries. With football and X being dominant sports in parts of Europe, it was common for sports clubs to have both popular X and football sections, with athletes playing both sports but during different times of the year. Example being Nottingham Forest Football and X Club, now Nottingham Forest FC. X was a demonstration sport in the 1952 Olympics, but never became an official Olympic Sport. X is unofficially called Russian hockey in Russia, as they see themselves as the creators of the sport. Due to the ice hockey becoming an Olympic sport, many X players started playing ice hockey instead, to get play internationally.

    • 8. The most cynical stretching of the laws took place in the much quieter surroundings of Worcester, when Brian Rose, captaining Somerset,did something which enraged the spectators. Somerset travelled to Worcester knowing that under the rules of the competition they would qualify for the quarter-finals as long as they did not lose by a heavy margin. Even if they won, Worcester (and Glamorgan, who were seemingly assured of an easy win over Minor Counties South) could only finish on the same number of points as Somerset; they needed a conclusive victory to overtake Somerset by virtue of a superior strike-rate, which was used to separate teams on level points Rose realised that what he was planning was likely to cause an outcry, and checked with Donald Carr, the secretary of the Test & County Cricket Board (the forerunner of the England & Wales Cricket Board), whether it was legal. The reply came that while it was within the laws as they stood, it was certainly against their spirit and that there would be "repercussions". What did he do?
