Remember the two-foot-long hotdogs being sold at Rangers stadium this year (aka the “boomstick”)? ESPN reports they sold 191 of those monsters on opening day.
Brewers fans will see a familiar face in many of the team’s TV spots this season. Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Brew Crew will feature Packers’ star QB Aaron Rodgers in several of the ads…interesting decision to bring a sports hero from a different local professional team into the team’s marketing plans.
From the Twitterverse (via @TVSportsratings): “Swamp People (4.5 mil viewers) had a larger audience than The Masters, both NBA games on TNT, 2 MLB games on ESPN2, NHL on NBCS.” Am I the only one surprised by this?
First it was Tebow Mania, then Linsanity…now apparently three Giants fans are competing for the trademark rights to “Tim-Sanity.” Sure seems like overkill to me but not sure Tim-Sanity will catch on anyway…wishful thinking perhaps?
Vanilla Ice performed at half-time of a recent Minnesota Timberwolves game…still trying to figure out if the game sold out but love the effort from the Wolves’ staff to attract a crowd. Attendance at the Target Center is up over 13% on the season, best in the NBA.
