What’s a principle sponsor? Why do principles need sponsors?
Wow! A Spelling flame! Cool!
Of course we sponsor the Yankees of the Premier League. Couldn’t we bail out Carlsberg?
Well, since the government sponsors the Yankees (the state and city are paying for their new stadium, the feds are paying by making the bonds tax-exempt), why shouldn’t they sponsor Man United as well?
I think what our national football team really needs is a new stadium, don’t you?
Sweet can I score me some free tickets now that I am part owner?
Exactly, Lee, new national agenda:
-get me in the sponsor’s box for a Champions league match
-run some sort of passport shenanigans to get their youth team players on the US men’s team
But… but… I hate Manch United. Next you’re going to tell me I’m the primary sponsor of the Yankees, Colts Pistons and Montreal Canadiens. :(
Speaking of the Colts, may I say I admire Mr. Balko’s professionalism in not touching upon the Tom Brady matter with extreme gloating?
/’Cuz I’d be.
Eric – I think that, given Liverpool’s past experiences with American ownership, us taking over their sponsor would cause riots.
soccer. tchah! how can you trust a sport where they don’t fall on a loose ball!?
Does that mean I can bend it like Beckham? Oh wait no, he’s playing for the LA Galaxy now. Shoot.
