Never Buy a Paddle Before Doing This…
Is your paddle legal? Just because it has the USAP stamp of approval doesn’t mean it cannot and will not be deemed illegal at some point, as we found out at this year’s US Open. A new channel provides independent data so you can make a sound decision when investing in a paddle. Check out my interview with a gentleman who provides us with this data.

Re-Imagining Barry Sonnenfeld’s “Dinosaurs vs. Aliens” as an Epic Digital and Web3 Gaming Masterpiece
The leading next generation gaming and entertainment company continues to evolve the realms of Web3 enabled gaming and transports audiences directly into the graphic novel
Orange Comet Further Expands Gaming Portfolio
LOS ANGELES /PRNewswire/ — Orange Comet, a leading next-generation gaming and entertainment company, today announced its partnership to develop Barry Sonnenfeld’s Dinosaurs vs. Aliens into a first-of-its-kind action packed and cinematically driven Web3 enabled video game that will bring iconic prehistoric and other-worldly creatures to life in a never before seen way. Based on the 2012 graphic novel created by Sonnenfeld and Grant Morrison about a secret world war battle that was never recorded in our history books, the game is currently in early development by Orange Comet.
On the heels of its recent partnership with Mysten Labs, which announced the launch of three new titles, including the upcoming The Walking Dead: Lands, the news of Dinosaurs vs. Aliens further demonstrates how Orange Comet is pushing the boundaries of innovation and imagination to deliver unparalleled gameplay. Founded in 2020, Orange Comet leverages innovative and imaginative technology to create next-level Web3 enabled video games for players worldwide, captivating and transporting audiences into new realms of entertainment, while monetizing Hollywood’s most treasured franchises and IP.
“Orange Comet is committed to unlocking the limitless power of the blockchain, enabling entertainment across worlds never explored before,” said Dave Broome, CEO of Orange Comet. “With Dinosaurs vs. Aliens, we are excited to expand our gaming portfolio as we set a path for Orange Comet’s first original gaming project, evolving this celebrated narrative into a truly bespoke gaming experience that allows players and fans to embark on an extraordinary journey with today’s most sophisticated technology at the helm.”
The partnership first came to life when Sharad Devarajan, co-founder of Liquid Comics (the publisher of ‘Dinosaurs vs. Aliens’) approached Sonnenfeld with an idea of reimagining the graphic novel story by way of Web3 enabled games and online digital experiences. Devarajan connected with Broome who soon began to think of unique ways to bring this imaginative story into life through gaming and Web3 technology, and to do so in a way that fully immerses gamers and fans into an alternate universe, where they too can be a part of the story.
“As soon as I met Dave Broome and his team, I became incredibly excited about the possibilities Orange Comet could bring to the Dinosaurs vs. Aliens IP,” said Barry Sonnenfeld, Creator of Dinosaurs vs. Aliens. “Even as Grant Morrison and I were working on the initial graphic novel, I imagined how much potential the concept lent itself towards gaming. I can’t wait to see this next chapter of Dinosaurs vs. Aliens come to life as a Web3 game.”
Orange Comet, led by entertainment industry veteran Dave Broome, is a passion-driven company creating industry-defining web3 enabled games with Hollywood-style production quality. Building on its continued expansion and growth, Orange Comet has also welcomed Peter Morales as its newest Chief Technology Officer & Head of Gaming, joining the company’s unique team of industry experts with backgrounds ranging from AAA gaming to television, movies and award-winning creative design.

From Softball To Pro Pickleball
Kelly Stroble, a non-traditional racquet sports player, shares her journey to becoming a pro and her experiences at the US Open and with different partnerships.
Pickleball may not have the same level of recognition as traditional racquet sports like tennis or badminton, but it is a rapidly growing sport. And for Kelly Stroble, it’s been a path to pro success.
Stroble didn’t come to pickleball in the typical way. Instead of years playing tennis or racquetball, she came from a softball background. But after being introduced to the sport by a friend, Stroble quickly fell in love with pickleball’s fast-paced, team-oriented gameplay.
Stroble’s commitment to the sport paid off in a big way. After only a few years of playing, she made it to the US Open, an event held annually in Naples, Florida that attracts the best pickleball players from around the world.
Part of what makes pickleball so appealing is the inclusive and supportive nature of its community. Stroble speaks highly of the other pro players, saying “we’re all friends at the end of the day.” And while it’s a relatively new sport, it’s one that’s growing quickly, with more and more players and fans joining the community every year.
Stroble has also been fortunate enough to have great partnerships with sponsors like Engage Pickleball and Civil E Apparel. These partnerships have helped her excel in the sport, providing her with the tools and support she needs to be a top player.
Overall, Stroble’s story is a testament to the power of dedication and hard work. Even without a traditional racquet sport background, she was able to become a pro player in a growing and competitive sport. And it’s clear that she’s not done yet – Stroble has already set her sights on even bigger accomplishments in the future.
