Rio 2016: UA Steals Page from Nike’s Ambush Marketing Playbook

How is Under Armor out-Nikeing Nike? Essentially by doing everything Nike did to every other athletic brand for 20 years until about 2005.

Great article about the rise of Under Armor and the sly ways brands get attention at the Olympic games despite not being official sponsors.
After years of elbowing its way into events despite official competing sponsors, Nike is now on the receiving end as Under Armour steals its Olympic thunder

This Animal Shelter is Getting 'Pokemon Go' Players To Volunteer To Walk Their Dogs

There are good marketing ideas all around us. In this case, a mobile gaming craze was an opportunity for this animal shelter to "rent out" their dogs for walks with Pokemon Go players.

The shelter is getting a lot more visitors, the dogs get exercise and companionship, and thanks to all of the social media shares of Pokemon and dogs, they're getting the attention of more potential pet parents.
Like Pokémon Go? Like Dogs? Live in Indiana? Then get in touch with the Muncie Animal Shelter because they want you to take their dogs for a walk while you're out capturing Meowths and Rattatas.

Hands of Stone Official Trailer

It may be because I'm a fan of boxing and Roberto Duran, but this movie looks incredible. Hopefully, this will be DeNiro at his best too.

Here's the synopsis of the movie:

HANDS OF STONE follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words “no mas” (no more.)

Overall, the service was great. The staff was very accommodating during our event. We had to film some of the attendees and they had no problem giving permission to move their furniture from their lobby areas to our video production room. I also like their pool area with ping pong table, and fishing poles to use in their pond out back. I'm not a fan of their "incidentals" credit card hold of $200 and I thought $9 for a beer in the hotel restaurant was ridiculous. Other than that, a great stay.

I've gone for the 'cook your own dinner' before. Not my favorite experience, but that's me. Their wine is decent. But, the annual 2-day festival the first weekend in September is an event I never miss. Ever. Great atmosphere to spend the day with friends walking through the vineyard and listening to live music with a bottle of wine.
