What are the Chances Beyonce Knowles Really Becomes the Rockets Owner?

There seems to be an irritating trend going around that has to do with celebrities buying up professional sports teams, or at least investing in them. There’s a good chance that Beyonce will at least invest in the Houston Rockets, but there’s nothing written in stone as of yet. How much control she has really depends on how much she invests, since the team is valued at around $2 billion at this point. Beyonce’s net worth isn’t even half that, but she could easily invest in the team and generate enough interest that she might actually have a say in

These are two stunt doubles you have to figure are just bad to the bone. Putting them in even a mock knife fight looks like it would be absolutely brutal, not to mention impressive. Each woman is skilled at their craft and knows how to disarm and disable the other, but it would seem that the stunt woman for the Black Widow is a little more crafty than Elektra’s stunt double. For one thing she goes for function instead of form while Elektra is more flips and acrobatic moves that are pretty but not exactly practical. Black Widow tends to
