If weather cooperates, I will be leaving tomorrow to cover the business of the Super Bowl live from Dallas. But Friday night, after I do my last on air appearance, I’m boarding a plane and flying home before the game.
You know you're in La-La land when you don't have an NFL team, you don't have an NFL-approved stadium, but you do have the most enormous branding deal ever.
Counterfeiting costs American businesses alone more than $200 billion and, not surprisingly, the sports apparel counterfeiting business is continuing to grow.

When the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys announced that they’d be selling tickets to fans who wanted to stand outside the stadium for the Super Bowl, many people laughed at the concept and the $200 price tag. But it might be the league and the Cowboys who have the last laugh.
With more than 40 percent of NFL fans being female, jerseys tailored for women have become popular in recent years. So it’s interesting to see what jerseys men buy that women don’t and vice versa.
Ben Roethlisberger has two Super Bowl rings and he’s heading for his third. But not many people are talking about the marketing bump he can receive if he joins an elite group of quarterbacks (Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana, Troy Aikman and Tom Brady) that have won three titles.

After all, it's not like there would be much of a public backlash. It's hard to put up an argument when the average price of tickets jump to three or four times face once the two teams are set.

Stanford Jim Harbaugh has a choice. Should he stay coaching the college game or should he leap to the NFL? If he stays at Stanford, he obviously has built up more goodwill there and therefore can afford a few lean years, but that’s the exception.
What is a coach worth? Well, the answer is whatever it takes to get him. And if that person is Jim Harbaugh, that’s a lot of money. Harbaugh will coach what is likely his last game with Stanford tonight at the Orange Bowl against Virginia Tech. And while top coaches have had three or four teams pull them in various directions, Harbaugh really has a perfect storm going.
It is just silicon with a mylar hologram on it. But hundreds of thousands of people across the world have spent some serious money to wear them on their wrist.
You’re an NFL coach and you’ve just gotten fired. Don’t worry. More of your gravy train is coming in the form of Coors Light ads. That’s if you’ve said anything funny at press conferences over the years.
