I don't mind the corporate sponsorship on game logos. But I don't like the corporate logos on uniforms. And capitalism (regulated) is what makes this country great. If you don't like it - tough shit.
Calvin Coolidge's famous quote:
“After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world. I am strongly of the opinion that the great majority of people will always find these the moving impulses of our life.”
If this hadn't just preceded The Great Depression it would have gained more fame.

McCAIN THE HERO NEARLY SUNK AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER & KILLED 134 SAILORS
Via Lew Rockwell
McCain, when a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy was a Navy pilot (they call themselves aviators). July 29, 1967 while on the deck and in his plane on the carrier U.S.S. Forrestal he managed to screw up procedures (officially denied and covered up by him and the Navy and also even promoted on Wikipedia if you care to look–reason to follow). He did a smart ass punk attention getting trick by doing a “wet start” up of his jet.
When a pilot wants to be a wise ass or show off, this type of engine start creates a large startling flame and lots of surprise noise from the rear of a jet engine on start up–this was no accident. This and the large subsequent electrical surge and apparent (incorrect and against policy) weapon arming (by the pilot) caused the launching of a powerful Zuni rocket across the carrier’s deck hitting other parked planes (photo below) that were packing 1,000 high-explosive pound bombs. The subsequent massive explosions, fire and destruction went several decks below and nearly sunk this major 82,000 ton U.S. aircraft carrier.
This stunt and aftermath caused the death of 134 sailors and seriously injure (blow off arms legs, cause blindness and burns to another 161 sailors) and took the ship off the battle line for extensive repairs. Any other Navy pilot causing this type of death and destruction the Navy would have raped him and he would probably still be in the brig. Why not McCain? Well, first with many powerful connections this “little infraction” was covered up by the Navy (our most politically involved/connected service by the way).
You see his grandfather was a famous FOUR STAR Navy admiral and his dad was at the time of the incident was a powerful Navy FOUR STAR admiral and McCain graduated from the Navy Academy. So the old boy Navy tradition cover his ass network went into high gear immediately; and make no mistake, it does exist and it did for him.

Yes, but this year I might root for the National League for the first time. Why? Because it looks like there will be no Rangers on the roster. How many times ever has a team been completely absent? Also there are a record four Rockies named.
(SP) – Competitive eater Joey Chestnut has followed his latest Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest championship with another World Diarrhea-Making Championship just past midnight this morning, filling 4 1/3 toilet bowls with liquid feces. Chestnut has won the diarrhea title after each of his previous hot dog wins.
“It’s basically the circle of competitive eating life: you eat a ton of terrible food and then you expel a ton of terrible food,” said Chestnut, who added that his “anus feels like it had a blow torch taken to it.”
Sponsored by Tums, the World Diarrhea-Making Championship features the top competitive shitters from across the world and your uncle Randy. But none of the other contestants are able to fill their stomachs with as much diarrhea-fueling garbage meat and sulfites as Chestnut can.
“I drank 24 gallons of pre-made diarrhea over the past 24 hours and I still couldn’t beat Joey,” said one contestant who finished with 3 1/8 bowls. “He’s a legend in the diarrhea game.”
Chestnut said he hopes to defend his titles again next year.
“This is what God put me on this earth to do,” he said. “Fill my stomach with awful food products and then launch them from my rectum in short order — and get paid to do it. I’m blessed.”
