She stumbled into the sport in college at East Carolina , where she went on a basketball scholarship. One day in 1982, Wayne Edwards, an East Carolina athletic official who was active in team handball, saw Jones playing in an intramural softball game and encouraged her to try out for the Olympic Sports Festival team. "Here is this man asking me to try out for a sport I've never heard of, and he's telling me I have a chance to be on the Olympic team," she remembers. "I thought, Come on, be for real." She tried out anyway, and one month later she was playing in France on the http://www.karissashannontape.net/ U.S. national team. Even though Jones is past her prime, at 31, and admits her bruised body is burning out from the rugged play, she's "still the player we go to," says teammate Cindy Stinger, herself 34. Alas, one of Jones 's strengths, her lust for driving from her back circle position into the middle, where most of the rough stuff occurs, is her biggest weakness because every team in the world knows that's her style.

It could be very scary. Its all perception. Dont present yourself as a soft target. When were in these environments where its the real deal, we are traveling hard. Were in armored vehicles. They look like normal sedans or SUVs, but they are armored.

Jones Tweeted a message after his sentencing, "Just got out of court! God is Great!! #FAITH!!!" The 28-year-old actor was busted in 2009 after a raid at his home was conducted by DEA agents looking to shut down a drug ring trading in the illegal purchase and distribution of Oxycontin. Jones, currently free on bond, will have to surrender to authorities once it is determined which prison he will be going to serve his sentence.

The judge allowed Jones some leeway due to his minor role in the drug deal. Smallville actor Sam Jones released on bail after pleading guilty to drug trafficking case It all started when in October 2009 the actor was arrested by members of the Drug Enforcement Agency at his home in the Canoga Park neighbourhood of Los Angeles. The once promising actor was taken into custody after meeting an undercover federal agent who was posing as an Oxycodone supplier. According to court documents obtained by Mail Online, the government seized a massive amount of drugs from the gang - 586 pounds of marijuana and 10,000 fake Oxycodone tablets, which the defendants believed were real. Let off lightly: The 33-year-old could have easily spent five years behind bars and 20 years at most The DEA described Jones as the 'Hollywood connection' to the drug plot. He played the role of Pete Ross for three seasons on Smallville, a CW series that follows the adventures of Clark Kent during the years before he becomes Superman. Jones' character was one of Kent's best friends on the show. But the actor is perhaps even more famous for making a sex tape with his girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon.
