Monday mourning..

It’s just about official. Neither the Oakland Raiders nor the San Francisco 49ers will be in the playoffs again this year. Note to fans in the Los Angeles area -“See, there ARE worse things than not having an NFL team.”

Gillette says they will now “limit” their marketing with Tiger Woods. In the remaining ads, they are considering changing their slogan from “The Best a Man can Get.” to the “The Most a Man Can Get.”
