no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
I'll be spending most of the long weekend with people I'm not exactly fond of, doing things I'd rather not do.
Is anyone doing something fun this weekend? Taking the boat out? Getting on a plane and taking a vacation? Two chicks at the same time?
Tell us all about your plans.
Looks like a bidding war has ensued between Buffalo and Toronto, who appeared out of the running as late as yesterday. Wings final offer is firm at 5 years, 20 million. Buffalo and Toronto said to be in the 65 million total range, with 6.5/year thrown around.
Safe to say that Babcock is likely gone at this point unless he REALLY loves Detroit.
Pretty good story about a song I always loved, and will love even more now that I know that "out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy" is a reference to a place in Ann Arbor.
HailAndUnite's deadline for crowdfunding has came and gone. At last check, they raised only 13% of their crowdfunding goal -- after languishing at less than 10% for most of the period. But one cannot be sure because the crowdfunding stuff is completely removed from their website.
Anyway, what's next for our little band of misguided misfits?
A few months back the University of Tennessee jumped off the Adidas ship for Nike then oddly changed some team branding without much explanation. FOIA requests were put in. They were basically laughed at by Nike. The University felt some pressure after a couple of months and finally released more info. Basically Nike is taking creative control and putting their own people in place at the University to make sure they control the brand. Sounds very DB esque. Take it for what it's worth with all the uniformz talk lately.
