    Calvin Klein

    I have never gotten up and just walked out on a fashion show. On Tuesday, I RAN out of the Calvin Klein collection even before the runway show began. But it had nothing to do with the clothes. No joke--the line for the Calvin Klein runway show was two blocks long..

  • On Beckham, Player "Stocks, Madden: Your Emails Monday, 10 Sep 2007 | 11:27 AM ET

    Lots of catching up to do on your mail, as I’ve been on the road for the while and haven’t been that good in checking it.  The first note comes from Nathaniel Wydra, who wanted to talk about my insistence that a real life player stock exchange couldn’t happen...

  • Reem Acra: Designer 'Sews' Staying Power Monday, 10 Sep 2007 | 8:31 AM ET

  • Fashion Week Looks 'Skyward'  For Buyer Comfort Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | 12:53 PM ET

    Baseball, football, basketball and other sports all have those expensive skyboxes in their stadiums, where the "elite" get to sit for a hefty price. But a skybox for fashion? Yup, they've got em too. The video here is my story on them from Fashion Week, that I did on last night's "On The Money."

    New Gatorade G2

    Pepsi announced today a group of new products, including G2, a Gatorade with half the calories of your normal variety Gatorade. While Pepsi called this innovative and new, it's actually part of a strategy that failed more 25 years ago.

  • Will athletes ever be traded like stocks? That question was posed to me on a panel yesterday on "The Call." I've been wondering this since the inception of ProTrade, an awesome virtual market that does the same thing in the online fantasy world.

  • Coors Light Gal, Game of Cornhole And Me Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | 3:47 PM ET

    So I'm here in Indianapolis for tonight's NFL Kickoff. But with hours to go until the game, besides my segments I'm doing for CNBC, I have to find something to do with myself. Having done my tours of stadiums and arenas, I'm always up for a game of bean bag toss.

    Peyton Manning

    On the day the NFL season kicks off, we're running two stories on marketing of Reggie Bush & Peyton Manning.

    Phil Mickelson

    FedEx. We have a problem? Tiger Woods, who led the field heading into the Barclay's, the first FedEx Cup tournament, didn't play in it. Now, Phil Mickelson, who just won the second FedEx Cup tournament (the Deutsche Bank Championship) and is now in first place, isn't playing the BMW, the third tournament on the list.

  • The Perfect Contest: America's Ugliest Office Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | 1:59 PM ET

    I have found it. The perfect contest for the miserable office worker. Acco Brands is sponsoring America’s Ugliest Office. Enter at www.americasugliestoffice.com and you have a shot at either a 42” HDTV, or a TRIP TO HAWAII. Talk about bringing hope to the downtrodden! One mock-up of an ugly office has the chair doubling as a toilet, so you never have to leave. Nice. The contest runs through Nov. 30, and, so far, Jerry’s home office in Columbus gets my vote.

    The University of Michigan's loss to Appalachian State on Saturday was such an upset partly because of the financial differences between the two schools.

Michigan has sold out all eight home games already...

    KFC Delivers in the office.

    KFC is trying to get people to buy its new $2.99 lunch deals by going door-to-door at the office. Literally. It is paying to put plates of chicken on company mail carts making the rounds in office buildings before lunch.

  • David Beckham: One Goal And Done? Friday, 31 Aug 2007 | 9:14 AM ET
    David Beckham

    David Beckham's latest, if you haven't heard, is a sprained knee. They say it could take him out until the final three games of the season. To be honest, I'm relieved. I obviously don't wish bad things on Beckham or anyone for that matter, but I'm really glad this thing is over. Why?
