Various Things from EmailsBy: Ben | October 14th, 2012
Because I’m the most important sports blogger in the universe, my inbox is constantly being bombarded by emails from soliciters looking for shoutouts.
Okay, obviously kidding.
But I am somewhat frequently contacted by agents and PR people, and I was recently sent two bits of info that may interest you. First, Jorg Gray, an American watch brand, will be giving away a signed Clint Dempsey away Tottenham jersey in conjunction with the man himself. Though Dempsey is now one of the top strikers in Europe and a fixture on the US national squad, we all remember his humble beginnings in New England. Across America, Clint still stands as something of a “hometown hero”. To get your hands on the goods, check out this link.
Further, I was contacted recently about Sirius XM’s launching of a brand new all-soccer channel, “SiriusXM FC”. Starting October 15th, the channel will be available to all current Sirius XM subscribers, offering coverage of the Barclays Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FA Cup, and MLS playoff matches. Guest commentators will include John Harkes, Ray Hudson, Tony Meola, Charlie Stillitano and many more. It’s another awesome way for us Yanks to stay connected, and is a clear reflection of America’s growing interest in soccer. I’ll be adding channel 94 to my presets; make sure you do too!
I get a lot of spam, but if I’ll keep you posted on interesting offerings. Stay tuned.
