Sadly the money carrot is already there via the shoe/apparel companies.

The term 'Little League' was cynically coined by the FCC (Fairmonst Coal Company) to avoid being stopped from compensating it's pre-teen workers solely with cigarettes.

Texas.

Seriously, it was a long SWC rivalry.

Notre Dame paid football coach Brian Kelly more than $600,000 in bonuses during the 2012 calendar year, according to the university's new federal tax return, which for the first time also listed a Fighting Irish football assistant coach from that year as one of the school's highest-paid employees.

Former football head coach Charlie Weis continues to receive more money from the school than any current athletics employee. Weis received nearly $2.1 million in 2012 as part of an ongoing separation agreement that, according to the return, includes additional annual payments through December 2015.

...

The only person with more compensation from Notre Dame than Weis in 2012 was vice president and chief investment officer Scott Malpass, who was credited with a total of nearly $4.3 million.

As a private school, Notre Dame is not required to make public its employment contracts.

Kelly had nearly $1.5 million in total pay from the school for 2012, according to the new return, which the university provided in response to a request from USA TODAY Sports. But the document notes that Kelly "is permitted to receive compensation from external sources with prior written approval from the University" and any such income is not reported on the return. Kelly's base compensation was reported as $698,140 – a little more than $25,000 more than the amount reported for calendar 2011.

Was thinking about Williams' career today & started wondering where the actor who played Rufio in Hook is today. Turns out he wrote about Robin on his blog today...

Today Robin Williams past away and it’s been so surreal, it felt like it came out of nowhere… A text message from a friend made me aware of the news and frantically I jumped online to see if it was true. Sadly, I found out it was and even more sad, I read of the circumstances. I couldn’t keep reading the stories online for it’s too sad.

At times like this, I get very reflective and being a writer, I guess it’s best to write and what better place but my blog. It’s surreal because I haven’t seen Robin for many years yet in he’s so connected to me due to his close involvement in the biggest role of my career in “Hook” where he played Peter Pan and I played the punk kid who took over as leader of the Lost Boys when he left Neverland… Rufio.

Ten point game late in the third (30-20) felt a lot closer than I wanted it to.

On the next possession the Buckeyes reeled off a 14 play, 91 yard TD drive.

The Buckeye possession following that went for 10 plays & 76 yards & resulted in a FG.

The two drives combined for more than 12 minutes of clock time.

No, it was never close.

On a more serious note. They're European honey bees, they aren't dangerous unless you decide to stick your arm in the hive.

You know, everybody dies. My parents died. Your father died. Everybody dies. I'm going to die too. So will you. The thing is, to have a life before we die. It can be a real adventure having a life.
