The NEW Minnesota Miracle Man




WOW....that is the reason journalists were camping out in his front yard for two weeks this summer. The 40 year old man, who should still be a JET-BUT we'll take Sanchez instead, has still got something left. I agree it was a great throw and catch, but lets see if he still has that kinda throw left in him by week 13. I DUNNOOOOOO.

YouTube Video of the Week: Drake- Congratulations

Off of Drake's new album, Congratulations!!! This song is great and so is the new album. It has at least 5 songs that I like and have been listening to the past couple of weeks. Enjoy!

JETS D is AMAZING and so is SANCHEZ

Rex Ryan can talk the talk and walk the walk. The Jets Defense is sick this year and is the team is looking good. Rookie QB Mark Sanchez is playing great and has the City and the players and coaches falling in love with him.

Larry Fitzgerald Fantasty Football Owners....


If you haven't noticed the football next to Fitz's name on your fantasy roster by now you should. All fantasy owners of Larry Fitzgerald who have him in their starting line-up have a chance to win an autograph football from Larry every time he catches a pass this season. That means a lot of autograph balls will be mailed out to fans......I was keeping him in the starting line-up all year regardless, but this is an added incentive.

Fitz already has two TD's and ten catches already and it has only been two games. Arizona had a weak performance in week one and did not look like last seasons high powered offense. That should all turn around soon and Fitz should get more involved into the Offense as Bouldin comes back to full strength soon and gives Fitz a little more breathing room with the Safeties.

This is just another amazing marketing idea that ESPN has which will certainly help with its fantasy football income and increase Fitz's popularity amongst leagues. As if he wasn't popular enough after last season's performance. Fitz is owned in 100% of fantasy football leagues. EAS also has a great plug in here with Fitz rockin' the t-shirt on his the ESPN ad.

Check out the video Fitz does for ESPN describing this great idea:

The Role of an Entertainment Agents at a Glance

This piece by Gene Goodsell on the Entertainment Agent Blog gives some good insight into the life of a Music Manager.

Here is a small clip:

Many agents/managers started out with large commercial agencies. For example, billionaire David Geffen, founder of Asylum Records started in the mailroom at WMA. He became one of the first agents to represent only music groups and was one of the first to identify the big-business potential of rock. He then proceeded to run his own record labels with artists like the Eagles and Guns N’ Roses.

The best managers often have a background in business, sales and law. Becoming a successful manager takes

New Terms of Service for Twitter......

Overview: http://blog.twitter.com/
Terms: http://www.twitter.com/tos
Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/

Much like facebook did several months ago, Twitter has changed its terms of usage regarding content, in order to help clarify who actually owns the pictures and words you post to the site. Maybe these new terms will get negative feedback like the recent facebook changes did. So far I haven't heard too much of an uproar regarding the policies and clarifications of service terms for Twitter users. Chad Johnson certainly is still sending a million tweets a day.

10 Must-See Movies for Law School Students

http://www.onlineuniversities-weblog.com/50226711/10-must-see-movies-for-law-school-students.php

Amber Johnson sent me this link to their site which has some interesting articles. This one lists the top ten movies for law school students. I do not agree with all of them but the you can't go wrong with To Kill a Mockingbird, The Firm, and The Pelican Brief. I was disappointed that A Civil Action did not make the list.

This past term, I watched law and order and got into Raising the Bar. I would love to see a list of the top law shows on TV. My top five would have to be, Law and Order, Boston Legal, Raising the Bar, and I gotta have Perry Mason on the list.

With Donovan's McRib Injured Maybe We Shall See Vick Week 3...


This is the exact reason the Philadelphia Eagles decided to take a chance on Mike Vick this season. If McNabb gets injured, like he just did, the eagles now have an exciting QB to step in who can get your team a win. With the defensive effort the Eagles had today any almost any QB could have won. The Eagles D had 5 Interceptions one fumble recovery for a TD and got to the QB plenty....

Vick is eligible to play in week three, so that means that if the McRibb can not go in week two, the Eagles will have to start Kevin Kolb from Houston.

On another note, The J E T S JETS JETS JETS had a great week one victory over the Houston Texans 24-7. Rookie QB Mark Sanchez played great and the Jets defense had a solid day not giving up a TD and holding Houston to around 180 something in total yards. The only Houston TD was from a Jets fumble that was ran back.

Richest Athletes $$$

Below is the list of the fortunate 50 from SI magazine, which is a listing of the top 50 money makers in all of sports for this past year.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/more/specials/fortunate50/2009/index.html

Tiger Woods tops off the list yet again, with Phil Mickelson following. Sounds like a PGA tour event ay? Lebron and Kobe and Arod are all in the top 10 as well. Surprisingly, or well not surprising, but rediculously, Stephon Marbury made the list with his salary and earnings over $20 million dollars. $18 million of which he earned for sitting on the bench for the Knicks.

SI also has a list of the top 20 International athletes. The list is below and has David Beckham leading the list earning a whopping $45.2 Million dollars this past year.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/more/specials/fortunate50/2009/index.20.html

"For the first time, the average earnings of those on the list fell -- down $1.5 million per athlete to $23.6 million. That falloff is mostly due to lower earnings for No. 1 Tiger Woods and No. 2 Phil Mickelson, both of whom saw their on-course income shrink while also losing key endorsement deals. This year's list features 22 basketball players (a record nine who earned more than $20 million), 14 major leaguers, nine football players, three golfers and two NASCAR drivers. "
