[OUT Q=to be able to deal with it]


With the simple click of the mouse...a minor can log onto a site that sells alcohol...use the parents credit card and have the alcohol delivered to their house or a friends house within 28 to 48 hours.

The state of Virginia already has a law against selling alcohol to minors over the internet.

The Roanoke Express leads its East Coast Hockey League playoff series with Chesapeake 2 games to none after last nights 2 to 1 win over the Icebreakers.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Express vs Icebreakers; :]


The Express would get some special help when Jumpin Jack returns to the Roundhouse.
Roanoke would break the ice when Dan O'Connell takes the slap shot and Ben Schust re-directs it into the net for a one to nothing Express lead.
The Express defense would hinge on the play of Daniel Berthiume. Here he makes the diving glove save to preserve the one goal lead.
[SUPER=37-Roanoke/2/Chesapeake/1/;]


The Icebreakers would level the score with some 4 on 3 hockey Artus Kupaks slaps one home to tie the score at 1 in the second but Roanoke wins it 2 to 1.
