Best Buy, Under Armour, Wynn Resorts and more...Investing can be confusing. Luckily, Cramer has mapped out some road rules for all you Home Gamers trying to navigate the jungle that is Wall Street. Think of it as "Mad Money 101" –- some fundamental advice to keep in mind as you play the market.

There's way too much to talk about today, but I'm leading it off with the Jim Stewart 400 because I think the folks at Diageo have been shortchanged because of the fight and the Derby -- and maybe even the Mavericks getting schooled.If you haven't heard about it, the NASCAR Nextel Cup race this weekend is actually named after a fan. The folks at Diageo, who bought the race for their Crown Royal brand, had an essay contest in which 15,000 fans wrote in their favorite life moment worthy of toasting with the drink.
You've probably seen the video by now: the Under Armour employee day at Camden Yards. If you haven't seen it, it's too late. The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network has now pulled it from YouTube.It goes like this: reporter from the MASN during the Orioles pregame show is doing a live shot with employees of the sports apparel brand and the guy who she picks out of the crowd is very potentially inebriated already, somehow.
Actor Jonathan Tucker holds the lead in Trading With The Stars--as Ernie Hudson falls to 4th place from 2nd on a 30% decline on I2 Technologies. Meanwhile, James Cromwell moves into second followed by Stephen Collins in third. Only $982 separates James and Stephen--and lower down in the rankings--only about $200 separate Chris Moneymaker and Judy Gold. Willie falls from 5th to 9th losing over $72K and falling under $1M in total portfolio value, taking a hit on his sale of Glatfelter--which fell almost 7% Tuesday.

It's really hard to do this, but I feel like I have to throw an educated number out there. Brady Quinn lost $17 million on Saturday as a result of being taken by Cleveland with the No. 22 pick instead of being taken by the Browns at the No. 3 slot that everyone else thought he would be taken at.
Maureen from Delaware is looking for an investment that will hold up during a recession. In particular she’s looking at global infrastructure sector. She says she could go with the MacQuarie Global Infrastructure Fund but it seems to have little exposure to China and India. She prefer a stock with more exposure to China and India and wants to know if the guys have any ideas for her.
It’s Friday on Mad Money, and that means it is time for a game plan for the upcoming week. This week, Cramer’s got his eye on three things – two IPOs and one quarter. Investing can be confusing.

For those of you who know nothing of my past, I was the guy that brought competitive eating to ESPN, as chronicled in the book, "Horsemen of the Esophagus." I was the sideline reporter for two Nathan's hot dog eating contest telecasts and am one of the only reporters who the legendary Kobayashi recognizes by face.
Cramer gives his take on Dell, Under Armour, Bausch & Lomb and more...
Every once in a while, I have to bash someone. And today, I'm laying down the smack on whoever came up with the new LPGA logo. Have you seen this thing? It's the silhouette of woman in a visor with some big curly 1980s hair.
K-Swiss page90KSWSfalsetrue2pricetruefalsefalsefalse0QuotefalsetrueChartfalsetrueNewsfalsetrueProfilefalsetrueAdd to Watchlistfalsetruetruehttp://api-cdn.cnbc.com/api/chart/chart.aspGE4true3 shares took a dive on Thursday after the company said there would be a nice decline in domestic revenues and that it had made substantial investments in product development and marketing. One of those marketing costs is Anna Kournikova, their new spokesperson. I have to say, I saw Kournikova do what she did for products while she was playing. It was amazing. Take some tennis strings, slap her face on the packaging -- sales triple! I always got the impression she was one of the few athletes -- even though she never won a single WTA title -- that really did get a return on investment. But now? With her being off the court and Sharapova doing very well, I’m thinking K-Swiss investors would be more encouraged if K-Swiss spent its money finding the next great young tennis star in Russia than investing in a player that won’t ever play top competitive tennis again.
I think Roger Federer will be known as the best tennis player ever. The guy just absolutely embarrassed Andy Roddick in the Australian Open semifinals en route to playing in his seventh straight grand slam final. The question for me is, what does this excellence buy him? And by that I mean, how valuable is he as an endorser? It’s always hard to gain a worldly view, but here in the United States, I’m not sure Federer’s name means much.
So we wake up Wednesday morning to the confirmation from Microsoft that it will use LeBron James to promote its new operating system Vista, which is coming out on Monday. We don’t believe that’s really the story. Why? Because the endorsement model doesn’t work with operating systems. It works with sports drinks and shoes. It also works with digital music players and video game consoles. Wait, did I just say that? Wait, doesn’t Microsoft make both the Zune and the Xbox 360? Bingo.
Barron’s article on Under Armour must have been one of the most influential pieces of journalism in the sports business industry because shares of Under Armour absolutely took a dive yesterday ... Bill Parcells will forever be associated with Gatorade, thanks to the 1986 season, in which his Giants made the Gatorade Bath or Shower famous. Parcells, who retired yesterday, is also at the tail end of a new Gatorade commercial ... Everyone has written that lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country story and I’ve followed the fabulous success of the National Lacrosse League and gasped at some of the attendance numbers that I see ... One of my favorite promotions is gone. After four seasons, the Kansas City Royals are no longer doing their Krispy Kreme donut promotion.
