Millar started off by joking that “if you follow GPS, you end up in a ditch.” To which Ethier agreed; while urging the reporter to keep the exact location secret, he admitted that personal guidance is usually necessary to ensure that visitors make it to the front door.
Two years ago, Al Michaels was not getting ready to take a turn doing play-by-play for the Super Bowl. But he got to enjoy the next best thing, as he recalled this morning on “The Dan Patrick Show.”
Michaels teed off that 2010 Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. at the Bel-Air Country Club with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in LA to watch over the construction of a gargantuan new home, and Brady’s doctor, Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache. He mentioned to Brady at the time that he was going to be in Indianapolis in a couple of years to call Super Bowl XLVI, and playfully teased the athlete about his plans for that season.
Michaels also told Patrick he thinks Brady has the potential to become a very good golfer:
“He’s a range guy, basically,” Michaels said. “Before the game, he’s out there on the range, making sure everything is 100% perfect. How good is he? He could be a scratch golfer one day.”
Businessweek has combined two great things — sports and lists — to form a ranking of the 100 most powerful athletes. Titled the Power 100, the list was curated by CSE, an integrated sports marketing firm. CSE took the statistically best 600 athletes from a pool of 3,000, and then ranked them according popularity, endorsement earnings, and their reach on social media. Also considered was results from a Nielsen/E-Poll survey, which measured players’ name recognition, appeal, influence, and trustworthiness.
As might have guessed, Drew Brees took the number one spot in the Power 100. Brees broke records and has had a positive influence on the New Orleans community. Aaron Rodgers, who had a great meaningless regular season before being crushed by the Giants, is the runner-up. Tom Brady, LeBron James (trustworthy?), and Rafael Nadal, take spots three through five.
Eli Manning, who, unlike Rodgers and Brees, is not sitting at home during the Super Bowl, came in at 16. We’d demand a recount, but the Giants are going to win it all this year, so we’ll just take that honor instead.
In February, he laid out a cool $26 million for a Brentwood Country Estates mansion next door to Tom Brady and Giselle Bündchen‘s future abode. Q2 profits for his company have exceeded analyst expectations. And today, he has not one but two acquisition news releases hitting the wire. In addition to purchasing advertising firm IndieClick, Demand Media has also acquired local Facebook application developers RSSGraffiti:
“With the help of RSS Graffiti’s skilled engineering team, we intend to rapidly add new features that will make this useful product even more valuable to publishers and brands,” said Rosenblatt. “As a cornerstone of our social publishing strategy, RSS Graffiti enables us to partner with a large and growing number of Facebook publishers.”
Was Martha given a gag order on Brady?
Bridget Moynahan, ex-girlfriend of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his baby-momma-to-be, was in New York this morning to promote the upcoming ABC series Six Degrees. Moynahan appeared on Martha and Regis & Kelly and — miraculously — the subject of Brady never came up.
You don’t think Moynahan’s people requested a gag order on Brady questions, do you? And, if they did, there’s no way Kelly Ripa would comply, right?
The Longmeadow, Mass., native told Kelly Ripa and fill-in host Neil Patrick Harris that she only had to cover her growing belly with a purse for one episode. There was no mention, however, of the baby’s father, Tom Brady.
Ditto for Martha:
MS: Now wouldn’t you (to the audience) like to look like that (while pregnant- referring to Bridget)? What month are you in?
BM: I’m almost five months. This week (it will be) five months.
MS: Five months pregnant! Are you excited about being a mom?
BM: I am. I’m a little nervous cause I haven’t done it before, but you know I have little nephews and its always nice to spend time with them especially around the holidays.
Way to ask the tough questions, ladies.
