We were shocked when we saw the promotion. ESPN The Magazine offering its two million current subscribers a chance to get a full year of the magazine and its ESPN.com pay site, Insider, for $1 total.

Call his act what you want. Old. Tired. Comical. But the bottom line for Brett Favre and the Vikings will be the bottom line. And it's looking pretty green right now.
Late last night, the Washington Nationals signed their No. 1 pick Stephen Strasburg to a four-year, $15.6 million contract. So can the Nationals make back their money?
Sponsors that are along for the ride when a huge upset happens in sports normally have a lot to gain. After all, they paid the underdog pennies on the dollar and had a chance to reap big rewards. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.
Among the firsts in Sunday's PGA Championship was that Tiger Woods, for the first time, did not win a major tournament while in the lead going into Sunday. Another certainty thrown onto the ash heap of golf.
At some point on Saturday morning, as I reported on my Twitter page, the list of “corporate partners” on the Eagles Web site not only disappeared, the actual link which I saved on my computer had all the logos deleted from it.
Likely pressured by the Michael Vick signing, and the scrutiny associated with it, the Philadelphia Eagles have deleted the "corporate partners" page from its official web site, CNBC has learned.
We assume Michael Vick will see plenty of signs from taunting fans on the road, and maybe even at home in Philly. So we dreamed up a couple phrases and worked them up to see how they looked.
Maybe the Atlanta Falcons should have thought about bringing Michael Vick back. Both dollar volume sales and number of tickets purchased on secondary ticketing site StubHub have tripled in the last 24 hours for the Eagles-Falcons game in Atlanta on Dec. 6. StubHub spokesperson Joellen Ferrer said that the game will soon overtake the Falcons’ home opener against the Dolphins on Sept. 13 as the highest grossing Falcons game of the season for the eBay-owned site.
For every action, there is a reaction. Here are the winners and losers from Michael Vick signing with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fast food companies like McDonald's are riding out the recession by focusing more on international markets. So it makes sense that Burger King would look overseas as well. After all, the company's mascot is a king! So un-American! A much friendlier concept to Europeans... But is Burger King's latest marketing idea upside down?
The judge in the Lenny Dykstra bankruptcy case put off until Sept. 1st a decision on whether to take control of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy away from Dykstra, or perhaps convert it to a Chapter 7 liquidation.

At tonight’s Fasig-Tipton yearling sale in Saratoga, a colt called On A Storm could sell for more than $2 million. It’s a number would certainly get attention, especially in this economy. But that’s nothing compared to what happened at an auction at Calder Race Course in Florida exactly 1,260 days ago.
