Is ex-OG carry ana hinting at a return to competition?




Steven R. July 11, 2020

Former OG carry Anathan “ana” Pham is playing a whole lot of Dota 2 these days.

That might not come as too much of a surprise for Dota 2 fans, given the fact that he is one of the game’s most heavily credentialed players. But considering he’s technically supposed to be retired, it does raise an eyebrow.

According to Dotabuff’s stats, ana recently played over two dozen games over the course of a week in a number of different roles and heroes. His account has largely been dead over the last six days, but this sudden surge of activity on his main account comes as a surprise and hints that a return might be in the cards.

The two-time The International champion has been out of action since capturing a second Aegis of Champions at The International 2019. That isn’t necessarily surprising, as Ana has taken an extended hiatus from competitive Dota 2 following The International each year since 2017, but ana’s OG teammates Sebastian “Ceb” Debs and Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka announced their retirement after the event. This led many to wonder if ana was also done with competition.

Could ana be returning to pro Dota 2 with T1?

ana did make a one-off appearance as a substitute with TNC Predator during the WeSave! Charity Play tournament. The team was handed a quick elimination by Team Adroit.

This isn’t ana’s first time going on an extended binge of Dota 2, as he played for an extended length of time between February and March. What makes this recent binge more interesting is exactly who he was playing with this time.

During those unranked All Pick games, ana repeatedly partied with T1 captain Lee “Forev” Sang-don. The pair have crossed paths on several occasions in the past in pub games and played together professionally with Team World alongside a number of top free agents at the time. Their time together was very short, with the team playing in just a few qualifiers before the team dissolved.

Reuniting with former teammates Johan “n0tail” Sundstein and Topias Miikka “Topson” Taavitsainen on OG is unlikely while leagues continue with online play. If ana returns to action professionally, it will likely be with a Southeast Asian team like T1. Odds are that he stands as an upgrade at both the carry and mid laner position for almost any squad in the region.

Billionaire’s Historic Firearms Collection Offered by Vandenbrook Galleries Auction House in Tampa on August 8




TAMPA, Fla., July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tampa, Florida auction house Vandenbrook Galleries will liquidate a historic gun collection that includes firearms attributed to Bonnie and Clyde and Machine Gun Kelly, as well as multiple German Lugers obtained from the Norwegian Armed Forces Museum after Norway acquired these weapons in WWII. Over 100 other historically important and collectible military and other firearms from a billionaire’s personal collection will be on the auction block online and in-person on Saturday, Aug. 8th.

Reports surrounding the original sale to the collector state that Missouri police seized the Model 1897 Winchester 12-gauge shotgun attributed to Bonnie and Clyde on April 13, 1933, after a deadly shootout with the couple in Joplin. Bonnie and Clyde escaped, but two officers died in the shootout. Police found the shotgun upon raiding an apartment where the couple was hiding out. Paperwork accompanying the shotgun reports that a police officer later gave the shotgun to Mark Lairmore, who was a Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer, and that it remained in the Lairmore family. A police museum in Springfield, Missouri, displayed the gun from 1973 until late 2011, and it was auctioned in January of 2012. To read press coverage related to the 2012 auction offering the Bonnie & Clyde Winchester, visit The Joplin Globe.

Other records attribute a John Price single-shot, 12-gauge shotgun to 1930s American gangster Machine Gun Kelly, used by Kelly during a kidnapping. This gun to be auctioned carries the marking “Boss Shannon,” Machine Gun Kelly’s relative by marriage. Machine Gun Kelly’s mother-in-law Ora Shannon gave the shotgun to Benny Binion, owner of the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas. Ora owned the Wise County ranch house “where Boss Shannon and Machine Gun Kelly kept Charles Urschel (the hostage) when they kidnapped him.” The shotgun was kept in Benny Binion’s vault until 1985 when Binion gave it to Billy Bob Barnett of Billy Bob’s Texas, the “biggest honky tonk in Texas.” The collection up for auction in August acquired the shotgun in 1994 from Billy Bob Barnett with a historic letter of authenticity from Tex Whitson, former Binion’s Horseshoe Casino public relations director, Grammy Award-winning songwriter, and music manager for Merle Haggard and George Jones

The estate also includes acquisition records kept by the collector, including the provenance related to three German Lugers reportedly surrendered by the Germans to Norwegian authorities during World War II. These pistols were imported into Canada upon acquisition from the Norwegian Armed Forces Museum in Oslo.

Bidders can already visit the Vandenbrook Galleries auction and place bids at, or to register and bid online, and to receive other auction-related news and updates.

X-Games Veteran Darrin Mees Chooses Rooted Hemp CBD




BEND, Ore., July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rooted Hemp CBD has been essential for 7 times X-Games athlete and Professional Snow Bike Racer Darrin Mees. He uses it for better health and greater performance and swears by the quality of Rooted Hemp’s products.

“I just turned 30,” Darrin Mees says, “and I definitely believe that the Rooted Hemp CBD products have helped me feel the best I ever have as an athlete.” Not only have Rooted Hemp’s products been an integral part of his mental and physical health, but he never races without them.

Mees has been a racer almost his entire life. He has raced dirt bikes, snowmobiles, and snow bikes. However, his road to becoming a professional racer and a 7 time X-Games athlete was not an easy one. There was a time when it looked like he would have to give up racing in order to support his family. Things weren’t going well, so he did what he had to do. He got up at 4 AM every morning to work as a crane operator until he heard that snow bike racing was going to be in the X-Games.

After two days of driving in the snow without sleep, he arrived at the qualifiers in Minnesota. He only had time to go around the track twice before the event began. Nevertheless, he was able to make some passes in the final laps and earned his ticket to the X-Games.

Today, as a professional athlete, Mees is always looking to maximize his performance and health. “Being a racer for that many years has been pretty harsh on my body,” Mees admits. “I use the drops and the cream when I need to recover quickly from soreness or injuries.” Snow bike racing is a tough sport and it takes everything he has to be successful. Rooted Hemp CBD has been a big part of Mees’s success.

Rooted Hemp CBD is some of the finest on the market. Working closely with growers in Central Oregon, Rooted Hemp’s CBD helps athletes and others to get a better night’s sleep, recover quickly from injuries, improve concentration, and boost overall health. For some, Rooted Hemp CBD is life-changing. 

“I really believe in this company and what they stand for,” Darrin Mees says. “I have never worked with any sponsor that treats me and my family so well. They make me feel like family.”
