EJECTION JUNCTION -- T-Mobile has entered a multimillion dollar contract with Major League Baseball to provide exclusive dugout cell phones for use by managers to call in relief pitchers from the bull pen. The specially designed system comes with several apps including "MediStats" -- instant access to each reliever's average performance enhancing drug level.
PRICE IS RIGHT -- Target has announced that it will match prices on any item found on the websites of Amazon, WalMart, Best Buy and Toys R Us. As part of the new promotion, they were also planning to offer customers free T-shirts with a big Target logo stenceled on the back but have thought better of it.
MORE GROG -- Budweiser, traditionally a major commercial advertiser on Super Bowl weekend, will use the occasion this year to introduce a brand new brew, Budweiser Black Crown. The golden amber lager has dropped all pretence of being a calorie-saver but instead offers a chance to develop a beer belly closer to the shape of Henry VIII's.
POP PITCHES -- The trend among high-impact commercials airing during the Super Bowl are pop culture celebs who will generate social media buzz such as super runway icons Kate Upton and Bar Rafaeli and Gangnam Style YouTube sensation Psy. Also sure to spur plenty of Twitter chatter will be half time entertainer Byonce singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" while juggling three Yankee rookies.
