See What People Are Saying On August 1st

I've been watching you guys since day one and love you too bits.  But your assumptions are getting a little out of hand.  Today, in discussing SBUX (which I have owned and traded in the last couple years), you made references to Akeelah and the Bee 2.  I "Tivo'd" back
3 times and still had no clue what you were talking about.  A movie?

What or who is Akeelah? How 'bout a link to the posts?

Toni, I'm so glad you asked. Akeelah and the Bee is a film that was heavily promoted in Starbucks stores -- at least in the New York area. I can tell you this, because I go to Starbucks nearly every day (but that's another story).

I'm learning that there's a sequel to this film which will likely be promoted in Starbucks, as well. That's the "Akeelah 2" to which the guys were referring.

I didn't include references to Akeelah in my post - because I thought it might confuse readers. But perhaps leaving it out, was more confusing.

With that said - a link to the Starbucks conversation from Tuesday July 31st is below.
