Dennis Rodman’s Halloween Outfit - Now That’s Scary!

Thank You Brett Farve! Watch the amazing finish

October 30, 2007

I watched one of the most amazing overtime victories that I have ever seen last night on Monday Night Football. I’ve attached a video, CLICK HERE, of the winning play made by Brett Farve and Greg Jennings for your enjoyment. But the real story here is that by Brett tossing that winning pass my fantasy football team won its game last night by two points and moved me into first place in my ESPN fantasy football league. Talk about a nail biter. I’ve attached a link HERE to the ESPN fantasy football box score so that you can see how close it was for yourself. BTW, do I have any other fantasy football fans who read this. If so, let me know by leaving a comment. I have a fantasy sports idea that I would like to share with you.

CSI:NY is filming in Chicago today

October 29, 2007

I happened to see a scene being filmed across the street from my job today for the CBS series CSI:NY of course I had to ask what show they were filming and when it would air. I found out that it was CSI:NY and the show is to air near Thanksgiving of this year. I even walked down the street as a couple of Chicago police cars raced by and one of the actors was running down the street. I hope I’m in the shot when it airs.blog-photos-006.jpg CSI NY disclaimer.jpg

Did you know that today is World Internet Day?

October 29, 2007

I happened to read an article, CLICK LINK, that tells all about today, October 29, 2007 being World Internet Day.  You would think that as much as the Internet has changed the way we live and do business that this would be a worldwide holiday :-).  If you agree, submit a comment.  If I get over 1000 comments, I’ll find out who we need to talk to to make this a holiday.

For about an hour last August, Gary Hoffman was a very lucky man.

Hoffman was playing the nickel slot machines at the Sandia Resort and Casino on an Indian reservation in New Mexico when he appeared to hit the jackpot: the machine said he won nearly $1.6 million.

Fraud 2.0

October 25, 2007

As though straight out of some biblical parable, for whatever reason, a percentage of those engaging in an activity will do it the good way while a percentage will do it the bad way. In sports or academics, they call it cheating. In our industry, they call it fraud….

This story is of interest to me because it hits home to my day job with Monster.com. As the Business Development Manger for the Monster AdNetwork, I have to be aware that everyone I talk to about lead generation and revenue sharing is not being totally honest about how they do business. That’s disturbing, and I’m not sure how you fix it, but that’s why I found this story to be interesting. Are there other people in the lead generation, Internet Marketing, AdNetwork business that have comments on this?

Online poker players bet on changing laws

October 25, 2007

Now I like to get in a good game of poker every now and then myself, usually on the ESPN.com Poker Club. So I can agree with these guys that don’t want the government restricting their right to play poker online. So far I only play with play money, but I enjoy it. What are your opinions on this?
