The Fantasy Sports Phenomenon

Online fantasy sports are big"¦ really big. In September 2005, over 9.5 Million people in the United States were involved in a fantasy sports league through one of the three largest fantasy services – Yahoo, Sportsline and ESPN. To put this in perspective, the volume of people playing fantasy on these three sites equates to the population of Michigan (the 8th most populated U.S. state)! As such, fantasy sports have

Online Fan Support – France vs Italy

This Sunday, July 9th, France and Italy, two previous winners with plenty of history between them, will meet in what will surely be an epic battle for the 2006 World Cup. But before we end our discussion on the World Cup, we wanted to know who has won the battle for online fan support, France or Italy? One would think that the Italian Azzuri, who have a rabid national fan

World Cup Madness"¦

So it wasn’t the result that United States soccer fans had expected, but the games were exciting and Sam’s Army was out in full force. Crazed fans rooted for the American squad in Germany and in soccer establishments (bars) around the United States"¦Maybe a US winner in South Africa 2010? Let’s not kid ourselves.

Farecast

As an air travel consumer, sometimes we feel like there is no competition between the airlines and we never know if we’re getting the best deal possible on a plane ticket. The age old question always arises when you are buying a ticket online- Should I buy now, or do I wait a week to see if prices will go down? If I don’t buy now, will I just watch

Whole Lot Of Food

Obviously, food is such a big part of our lives and we all wish we could have ma or grandma’s home cooking every night. We all strive to live healthy, but in this on-the-go society that is America, we forget how to eat right and the consequence is being lazy with our food choices and packing on the weight. Trust me, I love the double QT pounder w/cheese and if

Diet Coke and Mentos

It’s been roughly 25 or so years since the spread of the urban legend of Pop-Rocks and coke. It was once believed that if you mixed the two delicious products it might cause an internal explosion that would blow your head off! I remember being in the 3rd grade and opening up my garbage pal kids cards on the playground, sipping on a coke and being warned by all my

Schwag

You know the stickers, t-shirts, buttons and everything imaginable that your sales and marketing teams dole out in order to keep the consumer aware of their brand. In a very competitive marketplace, the hats with a company logo might be the deciding factor in how a deal gets done. It’s amazing to see how excited a co-worker can get over a keychain with a corporate logo! Anyway, schwag is now

Extra Extra"¦

Read all about it. Every minute, around the world, there is more news being posted online than we can shake a stick at, and that is a lot. Personally, I have never shaken a stick at anything except those darn kids playing their music to loudly on their decked out entertainment systems in their hip new lofted space. So what’s new in news you ask? Not much. The same old

Rainy Day, Week, Month.
