If the ChiSox have to mention the store by name, they are getting ripped off. 500K is nothing.


I would wear a 7-11 shirt every day for a year if someone paid me 5,000


Heck yes..thats a good idea! ;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

prehaphs, but would wear a 7-11 t-shirt everyday if made well over 100 million dollars a year and could likely get more than that from some one else?

the more i think of it the more 500,000 seems like a hell of a deal. while i agree 500k annually doesnt seem much for this much publicity, there's really no other product that could offer this type of promotion.

I think for $100M a year I would tattoo 7-11 on my forehead.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
