  1. I would guess you could get two very good bodyguards for a day at around $5,000. Even if he pays for his own transportation, he comes out around $19,000 in the black (without a black eye, thanks to the men in black he's hired, who may or may not be black). That's a pretty good daily wage, as far as I'm concerned.
  2. Haven't posted here in a while, but I'm still semi-lurking. I made these a long while back; some super(police)car concepts. L.A. County Sheriff Ford GT: Texas State Police Dodge Viper: California Highway Patrol Saleen S7: Luxembourg Police Mercedes CLK-GTR Back into the shadows, looking at the soccer threads...
  3. Jan Koller thanks you for the age compliment. I actually giggled out loud at that one. Chelsea wore their new home kits today in their failed attempt at a Premier League title, complete with Petr Cech in highligher orange (the outfield already took yellow) with black socks to match his poofy hat.
  4. Liverpool are wearing their new home kits against Manchester City today, it seems. Simplified to the extent of boredom, I think.
  5. That's one crazy goalkeeper is what I'm thinking. Green sock flying in from nowhere.
  6. Inside the collar, which is the difference between Barca's classy detail and DC's conspicuous, out-of-place back embroidery.
  7. Do people seriously not realize that whether you yourself watch anything has no effect on its ratings unless you are in a survey-taking household for one of the ratings companies? And yes, the Super Bowl sucks. I'll be eating junk food and making fun of Eli Manning's head the whole time anyways, so it's all good.
  8. No; neither does anything else. Replace "magicians" with "basketball players" or "pharmaceutical companies" and you get the same answer: They don't need logos, but like anything else that is marketed they benefit enormously from one.
  9. Adidas's new numbers are a step up, for sure. The kits, maybe not so much.
  10. of if you're grandfathered in the Total Choice Plus,like me Hell yes. That's the way to do it. I don't like hockey, but it's always cool to have an extra channel.
  11. Invaluable information on this Subside Sports listing about the differences between authentic and replica Adidas jerseys: Authentic kitroom version. FIVE key details different to the standard retail release. 1. Higher quality Liverpool crest embroidery. 2. CAD-cut style Carslberg sponsor (rather than transfer on retail version) 3. Formotion tag (climacool on retail version) 4. No holographic ID stamp (every retail shirt had these to prevent counterfeiting) 5. Protective panel on reverse of embroidery to help prevent nipple rub.
  12. I bet they're banking on him being Wookiee of the Year.
  13. Steven Ireland, a soccer player, plays for Ireland.
  14. Puma's logo is pretty recognizable; if I were them I would have taken the free advertisement.
  15. I see it more as a 4-3-3 with a tight defensive midfield and wing forwards, but if you say so....
  16. I actually have several times for soccer matches, most recently for the Peace Cup final between Lyon and Bolton this past off-season.
  17. There are no words to describe my frustration. Except maybe "need another striker" combined somehow with "no later than January".
  18. They didn't change the logo for a new stage in the process; it was against IOC regulations for them to have torch imagery in their logo and this change was made as per the request of the IOC.
  19. Yes baby! Marseille won, for once, so I was very pleased this afternoon. Wasn't able to watch the match, but I can't wait to see the highlights. Tomorrow sounds very exciting, with Arsenal - Sevilla and Barcelona - Lyon (good luck Break-Wood) headlining the evening. Lyon are coming of a 5-1 thrashing of Metz in which Karim Benzema (Algerian! But plays for France.) scored a hat trick in the first half, followed up by Hatem Ben Arfa (Tunisian!), and the free-kick master Juninho Pernambucano.
  20. Wow, looks like Hugo Sanchez is desperate to piss away the brownie points he earned with Mexico's run to the semifinals of the Copa America. A real shame: First the switch from Nike's World Cup beauties to more Adidas template garbage, and now this. I guess we can't call them El Tri anymore. Regardless, if you're playing proper soccer and putting the ball through to feet, the bright red socks should be enough to distinguish your players from the pitch. This does explain why Mexico wore white against Brazil when there was no clash.
  21. Air McNair? It's not beyond the realm of possibility that he requests that the equipment manager place it like that.
  22. Before I read the "industrial espionage" bit, I thought England had just sacked Steve McClaren after his only good international week since taking over. Both McLaren drivers looked supremely preoccupied on the podium last weekend at Monza; nonetheless, it was probably in F1's own interests to ensure that the exciting race in the Drivers' Championship remains intact.
