    Minor league baseball teams have been known to go a step or two further than their major league counterparts when it comes to marketing and promotion gimmicks meant to attract attention and maybe help sell a few tickets. So it’s no surprise an affiliate of the Texas Rangers is trying to capitalize on one of the biggest moments in the baseball season so far — Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor punching Toronto slugger Jose Bautista. The now-famous incident for which Odor received an eight-game suspension on Tuesday.

    You know what's dangerous about a minor-league baseball team marketing person watching a Miss Universe Pageant gone terribly wrong? Ideas start happening. That was the case for Nathan Barnett, who works in the front office of the Frisco RoughRiders, the Texas Rangers' Double-A affiliate. On Sunday, Barnett saw pageant host Steve Harvey announce the wrong winner. As anyone with marketing in his blood will do, Barnett immediately reached for his cellphone. "It was not one person's idea, really, but I saw the gaffe happen live and texted [Roughriders director of marketing and promotions] Matt Ratliff that we had to invite...

    September 10, 2013 HERE THEY COME: Video of 2 Million Bikers group on their way to DC Right Scoop I’m not sure exactly where this is at but clearly DC is in for some fun. And I love how the trooper salutes them with his horns and siren as they ride by. Watch: VIDEO(I'm pretty sure that's a Virginia State Trooper flashing his lights and siren so this is either I-95 or I-64, I guess)

    It was one of the more bizarre scenes one will see in professional sports. The Saskatchewan Roughriders were in full party mode, galloping onto the field to celebrate the franchise’s second Grey Cup win in three seasons after Montreal’s Damon Duval missed a 43-yard field-goal attempt that would have won the game for the heavily-favoured Alouettes. But the Riders’ celebration stopped colder than a Regina winter night when the players suddenly noticed a red flag lying under the goalpost, followed by the announcement that Saskatchewan had lined up with too many men on the field. That gave Duval another shot...

    Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907. "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something...

    Lately, people have been questioning whether or not we should continue on with our war against terrorists. People question attacking Iraq. People say we might have brought the attacks on ourselves. So, this morning on my show, rather than try to offer some sort of personal insight myself, I read an article written by Teddy Roosevelt, published in 1899. It was about war and peace and what happens when people want peace at any cost. How brokered "peace" can sometimes be worse on a society than an actual war. Here are excerpts from that article below. I hope it gives...
