Sports Sponsorship Symposium

Last week I attended the Relay Sports Sponsorship Symposium at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel. I was hoping to interact with brand marketers and get a peak inside their minds for a bit. Sometimes, dealing with marketers, usually through advertising sales, things can boil down to the nitty gritty and you lose track of [...]

Crack Breaker for the CrackBerry

I use a Blackberry Pearl. It is my first blackberry and for the most part it has all the functions that I need in a mobile device. My major gripe is with the keypad and typing software. I’ve had the Pearl for over a year and I still struggle to correctly type certain words. A [...]

What’s The Deal With Ahmadinejad?

I follow current events and world news mostly through skimming through Time, Business Week and the Sunday edition of the New York Times.

Ann Arbor Is Still A Whore!

A few of you seemed eager to hear what I have to say about Michigan Football after witnessing another debacle last week vs. Oregon. I don’t really know what to say or think. Our defense is more porous than the Tijuana border. If I was Mike Hart I would pull that shady move that Randolph [...]

Ann Arbor Is A Whore!

I’m going to Ann Arbor this weekend to catch a Michigan Football game. I’ve gone back for a game each year since I graduated. Returning to my alma mater is usually one of the highlights of the Fall. Unfortunately, after last Saturday’s debacle at the Big House I’m not as pumped up as usual. Most [...]
