    Every game, people are eating barbecued beef, ribs, chicken and burgers. There are big kettle drum barbecues at every stadium. The cameramen at the UCLA-Fresno St. game had bbq aprons with the product name on them.

    ESPN has found a new way to whore themselves out. Give them credit. Its what they do best.

    Yeah.... the pre-game segment for USC-Oregon State just HAPPENED to pan past a tailgate which had a bag of Kingsford Match Light charcoal sitting on it.
    Devious, but whatever pays Dr. Lou's salary, I guess....

    Vince Doria had no comment other than to try harder and ask you shop nba.com for all your Boston Celtics gear. Boo-yah.

    I guess Coleman and Blue Rhino haven't agreed to sponsorship terms with the WWL. Yet.
