NBA Jersey Ads Likely in 2013 - Businessweek

Get ready for LeBron James and Mickey Mouse coming to a city near you. Or Jeremy Lin and the Jolly Green Giant. At a press conference yesterday in Las Vegas, NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said that team owners were broadly in favor of a plan to put 2.5-by-2.5-inch sponsor patches above the heart on team uniforms. The plan still awaits formal approval, but Silver said he expects guidelines to be in place by the start of the coming season so that teams have a year to sell the patches and Adidas, which makes NBA uniforms, has time to add them to jerseys sold in stores.

In March we wrote about the likelihood of the NBA becoming the first of the four major U.S. sports leagues to put ads on game uniforms. (We also provided some fun scenarios for team and sponsor matches.) Silver gave a “loose projection” that the patches would generate $100 million per season for the league’s 30 teams.

Eric Smallwood of Front Row Marketing Services, who has studied the television exposure of various on-jersey ads, says that number may be closer to $125 million. Smallwood anticipates an average annual price of between $4 million and $4.5 million for patch deals, with a range of $1.5 million to $7.5 million depending on a team’s market and players.

“That’s a fantastic location,” he says of the proposed patch. While smaller than the cross-chest treatment on uniforms for soccer teams in England’s Premier League, he says, it’s better for TV cameras, which tend to capture the upper chest and above. Not to mention the fans who will become walking billboards: “Where does your eye go? To the top part of a body.”

And just in case New York Knicks fans needed more reason to regret the team’s recent decision to let Jeremy Lin go to the Houston Rockets, Smallwood figures the patch will be an attractive property for a sponsor looking to piggyback on Lin’s celebrity for exposure in Asia. “All of a sudden in Asia there’s a pop-up of Rockets jerseys everywhere, and there’s a brand on there,” he says. Thanks to Lin, he anticipates Houston to be in the top five for patch deals.

Why don't the Heat Nazis get Elizabeth Warren to do a rain dance [Racist.] and end this drought?

Elizabeth Warren for President? Democrats' Barren 2016 Bench

Regardless of whether the president wins re-election, the Obama era will be over before long. Democrats will have to find a new leader on whom to pin their hopes. But who?

I'm sure antichrist is available.

I went to a conference of liberal activists this week hoping to find out whom the party's activist base sees as its up-and-coming stars. But the exercise turned out to be revealing largely for how unprepared people were to answer the question. 

Nearly every answer I got began with a blank stare or incredulous laugh, followed by some fumbling around, followed by "Elizabeth Warren."

Confirming the impression I'd gleaned from my conversations with activists and organizers, Warren ran away with the 2016 straw poll conducted at the Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington, winning 32 percent of the vote to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's 27 percent. [Heil Schicklgruber! - F.G.] Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who spoke at the conference and whose brand of gravelly-voiced populism is a perpetual hit with this crowd, was third with 16 percent; the other names on the ballot, all polling in single digits, were New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia.

It tells you something about Warren's status as a rock star of the left that before the Senate candidate in Massachusetts has even won her first election she's being pumped as a future presidential candidate. But it tells you even more about the status of the Democratic farm team. There are precious few tabbed for political stardom in the Democratic ranks the way Obama was starting in 2004 or the way Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is adored on the Republican right today.

"Whew, man, that's a tough one," said Jeanette Baust, a 55-year-old educator and activist from Denver who was attending the progressive conference along with her partner, Evelyn Hanssen. "I guess I'd have to say Elizabeth Warren if she can get elected." What about Colorado's Democratic senators, Michael Bennet* and Mark Udall, and governor, John Hickenlooper? The women didn't think they had national potential...

Hickenlooper? What funny names these babykillers have. 

Hey what's that asterisk for? Is Michael Bennet somebody we should have heard of?

12 dead in shooting at Colorado movie theater

A lone gunman dressed in riot gear burst into a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., at a midnight showing of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises" and methodically began shooting patrons, killing at least 12 people and injuring at least 50. 

The suspect, James Holmes, 24, of Aurora, was caught by police in the parking lot of the Century 16 Movie Theaters, nine miles outside Denver, after police began receiving dozens of 911 calls at 12:39 a.m. MT. Police said the man appeared to have acted alone. 

Witnesses in the movie theater said Holmes crashed into the auditorium through an emergency exit about 30 minutes into the film, set off a smoke bomb, and began shooting. Holmes stalked the aisles of the theater, shooting people at random, as panicked movie-watchers in the packed auditorium tried to escape, witnesses said. 

"You just smelled smoke and you just kept hearing it, you just heard bam bam bam, non-stop. The gunman never had to reload. Shots just kept going, kept going, kept going," one witness told ABC News. 

"I'm with coworkers and we're on the floor praying to God we don't get shot, and the gunshots continue on and on, and when the sound finally stopped, we started to get up and people were just bleeding," another theatergoer said...

3 LA-area homeless people found stabbed with notes

Police have linked three July stabbings of homeless people in the Los Angeles area to one suspect who left typewritten "death warrant" notes at each crime scene.

The third signed letter was found at a stabbing early Thursday morning in Hollywood and was similar to letters found at two previous stabbings in downtown and Santa Monica, Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith said. Police are asking for the public's help in finding a person of interest.

All three victims are in their 50s and were stabbed in the back in the early morning hours as they slept, Smith said. The victims survived, though one remains hospitalized, police said.

Police are warning homeless people to seek shelter at night and avoid sleeping alone in the streets...

Due to time constraints, we now move to further action.

The letters left with the victims were all signed "David Ben Keyes," who police have named as a person of interest in their investigation, Smith said.

Smith emphasized that police are still unclear if the name on the death warrants is the name of the actual suspect, and police only want to question Keyes at this point.

Keyes may be homeless and is believed to be from the Santa Barbara area, Smith said.

Homicide Division Capt. Billy Hayes —whose detectives took over the case Thursday— said it was too soon to know if the crimes could be linked to the series of gory stabbing deaths of four homeless people in Orange County between Dec. 2011 and January...

"Oh, right. So I'm the bad guy".

From AP [via Yahoo News] come this heartwarming tale of the triumph of America's once gret healthcare system.

Dad of Ohio cancer patient, 4, denies Disney World wish, saying trips should go to sicker kids

A 4-year-old girl who went through two years of cancer treatments isn't being allowed to go on a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World because her father said she's in remission and the trips should go to children who are sicker than his daughter.

The young girl, McKenna May of Haskins, had the trip postponed twice while was undergoing treatment for leukemia and finally was set to go in August when the father refused to sign off on the trip, the girl's mother and grandmother said Thursday.

The family said Make-A-Wish requires signatures from both parents if either have visitation rights or is listed on the birth certificate. McKenna's parents never married or lived together. Her grandmother said the father only recently received visitation privileges.

McKenna's mother and grandmother are now collecting donations at local businesses to pay for the trip to Disney on their own. Money has poured in since their story spread beyond northwest Ohio. They haven't told McKenna why the Make-A-Wish trip was cancelled.

"We've told her we're still going to Disney, just not when she thought it was happening," said her grandmother, Lori Helppie. "We don't want her judge her father."

Her father, William May of Toledo, said donations made to the organization should help those who are terminally ill.

"Spend the money on a child who this might be their last memory," May said Thursday. "Kids who are only going to live a year or six months."

The girl's grandmother said that McKenna has had a rough two years and won't be judged to be free of cancer until five years after her last treatment, which was last month.

McKenna was diagnosed with leukemia in April 2010, just before she turned two. Chemotherapy treatments affected her speech and immune system, and she had three extended stays in the hospital. She also broke her leg in a fall. Doctors told the family that it would better to wait to go to Disney until McKenna was done with treatment, Helppie said.

"She's been through quite a bit," Helppie said. "We have had quite the journey getting her back to being like every other 4-year-old."

McKenna's mother, Whitney Hughes, said she's overwhelmed that so many people have reached out to help. The family expects that they'll soon have enough money to go to Disney. It's something McKenna has talked about for months, her mom said.

"She wants to go see Mickey and the princesses," Hughes said.

From Roto-Reuters:

Retail sales fall for third straight month in June

 Retail sales fell in June for the third straight month, the longest run of consecutive drops since 2008 when the country was mired in recession. 

Sales slipped 0.5 percent, with declines across a wide swath of industries from electronics and cars to building supplies, the Commerce Department said on Monday. Analysts had expected a small increase.

"Evidence is increasingly clear that the U.S. economy is slowing," said Jim Baird, an investment strategist at Plante Moran Financial Advisors in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The report adds to a spate of soft economic data that is raising pressure on President Barack Obama ahead of his November re-election bid. Republican challenger Mitt Romney is focusing his campaign on the weak economy, which has plagued Obama's presidency.


The dollar declined against the euro and the yield on 10-year U.S. government bonds dropped to an all-time low as the data stoked worries the economy was floundering and could need more help from the Federal Reserve. U.S. stock prices sank.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke will testify to lawmakers on Tuesday and Wednesday on the Fed's view of the economy.

Job creation in the United States has slowed dramatically in the last few months as employers worry about a sagging global economy hurt by Europe's snowballing debt crisis. Bernanke's peers at central banks in China, the euro zone and Britain have eased monetary policy this summer to prop up their economies.

The International Monetary Fund slashed its forecast for global economic growth on Monday and urged European policymakers to take bolder action to stem their crisis. It also warned that China's economy risks a hard landing.

The U.S. factory sector also has shown signs of contraction due to the global slowdown, although on Monday a survey showed New York state manufacturers perked up in July. Still, new orders shrank at the state's factories.
The retail data is worrisome because it suggests consumer spending, which drives about two-thirds of the economy, is also sagging.

"This is another example of how broader economic uncertainty is having an impact on economic activity," said Eric Fine, managing director of Van Eck G-175 strategies in New York.

JPMorgan economist Michael Feroli called the retail report "ugly across the board," lowering the firm's forecast for second-quarter economic growth to 1.4 percent from 1.7 percent.

The economy grew at a 1.9 percent annual rate in the first quarter.
Separately, a poll showed on Monday that American companies are scaling back plans to hire workers with a rising share of firms saying the European debt crisis is taking a bite out of their sales.


Forty-seven percent of companies surveyed felt their sales have dropped due to Europe's woes. Among companies that produce goods rather than provide services, the impact was even greater.

In a separate report, the Commerce Department said U.S. business inventories rose in May as motor vehicle dealers restocked to meet demand.

Demand, however, looked weak in June. The retail sales report showed receipts at motor vehicle and parts dealers dropped 0.6 percent last month.

Sales at electronics and appliance stores declined 0.8 percent, and were down 1.8 percent at gasoline stations, reflecting a decline in gasoline prices.

Often, relief at the pump allows consumers to spend their money elsewhere. But that didn't seem to be the case in June.

"The consumer is obviously struggling, not benefiting much from weak gasoline prices," said David Sloan, an economist at 4Cast in New York.


And gasoline prices might not continue to decline. So far in July, prices for crude oil have risen.
Consumers also face the prospect of higher taxes and less government spending next year, a combination that could potentially push the economy into recession.

Lawmakers are debating how to avoid this "fiscal cliff," which is built into current law. Democrats warned on Monday they are prepared to let all Bush-era tax cuts expire if Republicans insist on extending lower rates for top earners.

Wait'll next week when this number is inevitably "revised" upward when nobdy is looking.

Even the left-fascist press can't hide the ju-eared cretin's bad poll numbers.

From the National Journal via Yahoo News:

Polls Show Trouble for Obama 

The first round of polls is out after President Obama’s Bain attacks against Mitt Romney and the results aren’t good news for the White House. By themselves, the national toplines are discouraging enough: Romney holds a (statistically-insignificant) 47 to 46 percent lead in the new New York Times/CBS poll, and the president is stuck at 47 percent in recent polls by Fox News and NPR.

But beneath the head-to-head numbers, the results foreshadow tough times ahead for Obama. Voters appear to be processing the worsening economic news belatedly, and their pessimism shows.  In the CBS/NYT poll, Obama’s job approval dropped to 44 percent, with only 39 percent approving of his economic performance – down five points from April.  For the first time since January, more voters now think the economy is getting worse. Nearly two-thirds of voters now place some blame on the president for the weak economic conditions, with 34 percent giving him “significant” responsibility, and an outright 52 percent majority of independents believe Obama will “never improve” the economy.

These aren’t numbers that victories are made of.

Obama’s favorability ratings – always his relative strong suit – are also at an all-time low. Only 36 percent in the NYT/CBS poll view him favorably, a six-point drop over the last three months, with 48 percent viewing him unfavorably. Romney’s numbers aren’t good, either – 32 percent favorable and 36 percent unfavorable – but mutually assured destruction isn’t going to win the election.

All told, the numbers paint a picture of voters growing increasingly disillusioned with the president. By going negative against Romney, the president is landing some solid blows. But without a positive governing agenda to campaign on, that may not be enough.


Steelers Update

This is exactly why we love love the gridiron game so much and won't let our sons play it.

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Polamalu: I’ve discounted head injuries to keep playing

Troy Polamalu confesses he has lied about the severity of a head injury to remain in a game.
Polamalu, who has a long history of concussions, also told “The Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday he has remained on the field even after the Steelers’ medical staff told him to leave.

The four-time All-Pro safety considers an injury to the head to be like that to a knee — if he can tolerate the discomfort, he’s playing.

“It may be kind of messed up, but you just kind of push yourself to be out there with your brothers,” Polamalu said. “I wouldn’t say there are any major lies where I totally lied my way out of concussions. In fact, during concussions, if it’s serious enough, you can’t even be conscious enough to lie.”

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher also said after last season he would lie about a concussion to stay on the field. To Polamalu, a player’s view of a concussion differs from the medical definition.

“I’ve had, I believe, eight or nine recorded concussions,” Polamalu told the radio show. “When you get your bell rung, they consider that a concussion. I wouldn’t. ... If that is considered a concussion, I’d say any football player at least records 50 to 100 concussions a year.”

The Michael and Cathryn Borden Memorial Book of the Day.*


From EWTN:

by Janice Connell

 Originally published under the title "Faith of Our Founding Father", by Janice Connell. We all know of George Washington, the fearless general, our first president and "The Father of Our Country." What we often overlook is Washington's deep spirituality. Drawing upon Washington's personal writings, public speeches, eyewitness accounts and letters, Connell reveals his down-to-earth faith. Hardcover. 213 pages. 

From Amazon.com:

 Most Americans know George Washington as the father of our country, a dedicated patriot, brilliant general and gifted leader who guided our fledgling nation through bitter revolution and became our first president. He was first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen. What most people don’t know is that Washington was a deeply spiritual man.

A devout Christian, Washington’s religious beliefs influenced his life as a young surveyor on the dangerous frontier through his heroics as a militia leader in the French and Indian War to the dark days of Valley Forge and the triumph of the presidency. He was held in the highest regard by his fellow citizens and history has canonized him as the most esteemed of the Founding Fathers. At the root of that esteem was his spirituality.

In The Spiritual Journey of George Washington, bestselling author Janice T. Connell examines the spiritual life of our first president. She takes us on a journey from his boyhood scarred by the early death of his father to the pinnacle of the presidency.

Washington was no stranger to sorrow, cold, hunger, persecution, violence, or terrorism. His great accomplishment was to face misfortune and conquer it. He achieved his victory by discipline, commitment, prayer, and the graced ability to bend his will under the yoke of Divine Providence.

Featuring the full text of Washington’s private prayers (some possibly composed by Washington himself), The Spiritual Journey of George Washington shines a light on the previously unrecognized faith of our Founding Father, illuminating his personal religious convictions and explaining how they guided his public acts of heroism and his philosophy of governance.

In this modern world, wracked by wars, terrorism, disease, starvation, immorality, and tyranny, George Washington has much to teach us. His accomplishments and writing disclose that Providence was in him, around him, and always with him, as It must be with us.

The Rich vs. the Rest of Us
Seriously. That was the column's headline in these parts.
A lot of people inside the Beltway are tut-tutting about the recent campaign focus on Mitt Romney’s personal history — his record of profiting even as workers suffered, his mysterious was-he-or-wasn’t-he role at Bain Capital after 1999, his equally mysterious refusal to release any tax returns from before 2010. Some of the tut-tutters are upset at any suggestion that this election is about the rich versus the rest. Others decry the personalization: why can’t we just discuss policy?
And neither group is living in the real world. 

First of all, this election really is — in substantive, policy terms — about the rich versus the rest...

Hmmm...Apparently, we were overrun by zombies some time ago...

Zombie Charity Walks

Picture this: A scene eerily similar to such classic horror fare as Night of the Living Dead -- throngs of zombies lurching forward, slouched in unison toward their target, arms outstretched in a parody of sleepwalking with what appears to be…canned goods?

Halloween is fast approaching, and with it comes a different kind of charity drive that has slowly gained traction in cities and communities worldwide over the past several years. From Utica to Utah, Ohio to Australia, “zombies” are walking the streets, and it’s for a good cause; more specifically, several good causes. 

While the exact origins of zombie walks are nebulous at best -- one of the earliest documented mass gatherings of folks dressed as the undead occurred in Sacramento in 2001 -- the charity component to such endeavors has been a more recent development. In 2008, the hosts of a Pittsburgh public access program The It’s Alive Show initiated the first ever World Zombie Day -- and an accompanying “Zombie Fest” in Pittsburgh -- and encouraged people worldwide to dress up as zombies and participate in organized walks to raise awareness of global hunger. It worked. The first Zombie Fest in Pittsburgh raised more than 2000 pounds of food in a single day, and this year’s iteration, held on 10/10/10, will aim to beat that figure while setting a new Guinness World Record for “Largest Gathering of Zombies” (yes such a thing exists).


Elsewhere, the Manchester, UK-based organization Zombie-Aid raised thousands of dollars for cancer patients during a 2009 zombie walk. The group has since announced plans for future walks and events throughout the United Kingdom and the United States. And in Utah, this year’s “Night of the Running Dead” 5K race will pit runners dressed as zombies against those dressed, well, normal, with all of the proceeds benefiting a local cancer foundation. 

It may not be your typical charity event, but then again, Halloween isn’t exactly your typical holiday, either. What do you think? Are zombie walks a creepily clever way to gain new participants for worthy causes or just plain creepy?

Obama the attacker: ‘Hope and Change’ meets swift boat tactics

The Obama campaign is going retro, circa 2004. Back then, President Bush supporters attacked then-Democratic candidate John Kerry on what was supposed to be Kerry's greatest strength -- his military service. A group known as the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth undermined that strength, calling into question Kerry's credentials and military awards. And thus was born "swiftboating" -- a term used to describe unfair or untrue political attacks...

Actually, Kerry was and is a lying piece of garbage. And even if he was a war hero like he claimed, look at the damage he did to the country after Vietnam.

From Yahoo's The Ticket:

 New Romney ad accuses Obama of directing stimulus cash to supporters 

 Mitt Romney continued his war on President Barack Obama's ties to political donors, releasing a new television ad Wednesday that attacks the president for routing taxpayer dollars to supporters and overseas companies.

The spot begins with a shot of burning cash falling across the screen.
"Where did all the Obama stimulus money go?" a narrator asks. "Friends, donors, campaign supporters, special interest groups."

The ad goes after two companies linked to Obama supporters that Romney has repeatedly mentioned on the campaign trail: the green energy company Solyndra, which filed for bankruptcy after receiving more than $500 million in federal loans, and Fisker, a California hybrid car company that builds part of its automotive fleet in Finland that also received federal money.

The ad ends with footage of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, speaking at a March 2010 press conference about a report that found stimulus money being routed overseas.

"Seventy-nine percent of the $2.1 billion in stimulus grants awarded through it went to overseas companies," Schumer is shown saying.

The Romney campaign did not say where the ad is running or how large the ad buy is. The spot comes a day after Romney unveiled an aggressive new stump speech attacking Obama on cronyism and for not supporting American innovation and businesses.

An Israeli lawmaker has torn up a copy of the New Testament in front of cameras in his parliament office.

An aide says Christian missionaries mailed the Christian scripture to Michael Ben-Ari of the ultranationalist National Union Party.

Itamar Ben-Gvir said Ben-Ari, an Orthodox Jew, was enraged to receive the book, in whose name he says millions of Jews were slaughtered. Ben-Ari tore it up, he said, then posed for photographs with the destroyed Bible.

Many Christians over the centuries persecuted Jews, holding them responsible for Jesus' crucifixion.

Government spokesman Mark Regev said, "We totally deplore this behavior and condemn it outright. This action stands in complete contrast to our values and our traditions. Israel is a tolerant society, but we have zero tolerance for this despicable and hateful act."

Oy vey!

Zombies and Gorillas Overrun Denver

Maybe it's the altitude, but come summer, the Mile High City unleashes a series of kooky happenings ranging from the world's largest Zombie Crawl (a horde of 7,000 blood-splattered zombies) to the world's largest gorilla run (1,200 fully costumed gorillas...and growing). Visitors are welcome to dress appropriately and join the shenanigans. Here's a guide to Denver's crazy, fun-filled summer:

1) Every Wednesday night through Sept. 26, thousands of costumed bicyclists take to the streets for a moving pub crawl known as Denver Cruisers. Bike riders dress according to themes (examples include Space Invaders, Duct Tape & Cardboard, Pirates, Punk, Goth & Glam) and travel from pub to pub through the back streets of Denver neighborhoods, finishing with a scary-looking, but generally safe "Circle of Death," a ride in which huge circles of riders pedal into an increasingly smaller circle. 


2) Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Colorado Gay Rodeo from July 13 - 15 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. This year's event includes traditional rodeo events such as team roping, bull-riding and flag racing, but also incorporate some GLBT twists - wild drag racing, steer decorating and goat dressing. 

What the heck did those poor animals ever do to those sodomites? Where's PETA when you need somebody's car firebombed?

3) Run for Your Lives in the race of a lifetime at the Thunder Valley Motorcross Park on July 14. This 5K obstacle course pits you - the living - against a horde of zombies who will chase you through a series of obstacles including pools of "blood" and undead infested forests. A dozen bands will play following the race, whether or not there are any survivors. 

Zombies seem practically rational deep in the heart of Obamastan...

Either Benito's the American Stalin, or he has the worst case of penis envy EVER.

Hey, you jug-eared commie, business taxes pay for those roads, bridges, and teachers, too!

Dumbass Movie Of The Year.

 I have a feeling this one will be a guilty pleasure of mine for years.

 From IMDb:

Ted (2012) 

As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship. 

Yeah, it's juvenile and moronic, filled with drugs, sex, [Plush on bimbo. I'm not sure that counts.] farts, profanity, and fights. But it is often hilarious. The party at Ted's apartment is an all-time riot with Sam Jones and a killer Hootie and the Blowfish karaoke number.

You must give Seth MacFarlane credit for knowing his audience and for being only the tiniest bit pretentious. "Ted" may be dumbass, but it is infinitely better for you than all those "films" that pretend they are art.

Fyodor's Rating: 4 cannoli [out of 5]

Kind of ironic for a slave to Planned Babykilling's black genocide campaign, eh kiddies?

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
