Cub Dave - What's going on out there? Chicago Bears sold out their name and will now be known as "Chicago Bears presented by Bank One". How'd that happen? What's next...Chicago White Sox presented by Fruit of the Loom? Why stop there? How about...New York Yankees presented by New York Stock Exchange? Or... ah, yes! New England Patriots presented by Sam Adams Beer? What other teams can we sell and to whom? This ought to get the BOL creative minds racing. Wait ! One more! (I can't resist!) BOL Water Cooler presented by Perrier!

Actually, I'd bet money that Outhouse Springs is supplying the BOL water. Have you seen their billboards? Now that's humor!

I think we should have enough clout to get either a good cheep wine to "present" BOL...or an umbrella drink distributor.

It's a sad sad day in Bearville - but, on the bright note, the boys of summer found some power last night (after losing the real power for 16 minutes)

Some how "Nextel Cup Racing" just doesn't have the right ring to it either. Some how a mechanic hunched over a transmission with a cellphone in his ear just isn't the same as a Winston dangling from his lips.

No way, it would be Green Bay Packers brought to you by Bluebird. (as in the bus company)

or a very large cheese producer....

You see...this is why we don't have professional sports in Alaska...all that evil commercialism! (that and the fact that rich, young, talented sports people...are smart enough not to spend their lifes in Alaska freezing and slipping on the ice)
