rantnrave/RR Why is it when it comes to Atlanta, especially when it involves things like the Super Bowl, we can’t trust probably the world’s best news gathering organization -NYTimes, which published 20 “hot” Atlanta Super Bowl tips. 18 were wrong and #11 said, “Don’t leave your car running at a gas station.” Loren, that’s a shot. We have had a couple problems with that, but it is actually quite rare. Our hijackers seem to randomly pick the most famous and loudest people out there, so it’s always blown out of proportion. By the way, if we had written something like this about Staten Island, the Times would have written 3 headlines about the need for Southern sensitivity training. By the way, it seems like the Times only stuffed Super Bowl guidelines for its Manhattan subscribers. If Uber would have targeted zip codes or economically profiled a customer base, the headline story would be why is a company offending people in Brooklyn, which is not possible as long as pizza is kept out of it, especially Joey’s. By the way, the Times food guide for Super Bowl was way off base – totally wrong. They needed to call Mary Reynolds here in town. How do they recommend chicken wings and not say word about R Thomas’s baked, charred wings, and recommend breakfast spot and not bring up Murphy’s Brunch or Ray’s on the River Sunday Super Bowl Spread . Instead, they suggest Busy Bee and JR Crickets. LA don’t hold it against us. Of course, they missed the biggest restaurant vibe in town with Steve Palmer and Indigo Road – like everybody in LA county -Oku and Oak are 5 Stars.
We can get over it. They are the Times and Moe Bandy’s great hit “It’s a Cheating Situation” explains it better than I can. By the way, Bandy’s better than anybody at milking a music niche by just owning down on your luck tunes – getting drunk and hit by a train were lightweight lyrics compared to his stuff. When Willie, Waylon and the boys wanted a real downer line, they would say call Moe Bandy and get one from him. I really don’t know how Entrepreneurs survive in business if you don’t have a “call her” category. By the way, Moe Bandy just released a book titled “Lucky Me.”
Couple of quick updates – Yes, Lee Heisman, we know you are going to the Super Bowl and you had all the prized party tickets in town. We got it – your Omni channel marketing is as good as your IT strategy
Richard Kopelman, CEO of Aprio, dropped the H bomb on me last week. I called him to go to a Super Bowl party and he said in a low, sexy voice email – “I’m at Harvard this week.” You could almost hear him leaving out the R – Havard. He is working on being CEO of year and earning it. He and CMO Danielle piped up on TV – NFL’s GridIron Givebacks. Richard – share the angle here?
Let’s end it on a Moe Bandy note – delegation is over-rated. Sure, you have to get other people to do the work, but you have to be involved or you will suffer the losses – two crises last week and both due to Entrepreneurs looking other way and got hit by the train – back to Bandy.
I got two points and $500.00 on the Rams. Brady in this town is about as welcomed as the Boston Strangler, but he also ultimately got caught. Go Rams.
