Money the city of Oakland simply could not fork over in order to keep the NFL franchise in California making it a windfall for team owner team, Mark Davis.

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas

Sports Gambling May Soon Be Legal Outside Las Vegas – Sports Techie blog.

Sports betting and gambling may soon be legal outside of Las Vegas perhaps by next year in states like New Jersey from all indications. NBA commissioner Adam Silver to former MLB commish Fay Vincent are making statements indicating they are betting on this sea of change happening  in the near future even though an ongoing lawsuit by the leagues, NCAA and the United States Justice Department says otherwise. I believe the rapid advancement of technology such as the internet, apps, kiosks, and tracking, means the issues that plagued the idea of legalized bets on football, baseball and basketball, hockey, fighting and racing, and even new sports such as Esports and Ultimate Frisbee, are obsolete...

Introducing the all-new CLA by Mercedes-Benz

Set your “Soul” free with the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA class 2013 Super Bowl 47 commercial.

The Mercedes-Benz all-new CLA 2013 Super Bowl commercial is tempting to imagine. Sure the main character is a dude who I consider to be Sports Techie but it might as well be a woman. It’s the life image upgrade offered by the Devil, played by actor William Dafoe, which this CLA advert delivers. “This September, set your ‘soul’ free,” says Mercedes-Benz USA.  Make a deal with the Devil and have the car and everything that goes with it…!
