Where or when does this stop?

This week the city of Atlanta announced $192 million of upgrades for their NBA arena, paid for by the city and the team.  This money provides such “features” as: TopGolf simulator, barber shop and more bars and clubs.

This begs the question……WHY?

If this is the “New standard”, count me out.  I understand the concept of improving the game day experience, but in my opinion, these kind of items are way over the top and have completely “jumped the shark”.  The city of Charlotte has plans to start discussing changes to their Arena in 2019.  At this rate, I am scared to see what topics may be on the table. 

I don’t want to leave NFL stadiums out of this discussion.  They are no different or any better.  Does this stadium make the game any better OR does it just give owners more money (from fans) to justify spending on players?

Am I missing the value of these kinds of improvements to sports venues.

One final question….at some point, the Carolina Panthers will have to discuss stadium changes/improvements. What could possibly be on the table at that time, how much will it cost and who will pay for it?

Manage your content

The visual appeal of a website is always important to draw attention to your business.

However, don’t neglect the written word that accompanies the visuals.  The search engines review the written word to decide good, better or best, relative to SEO placement.  Sometimes the simplest change (“auto insurance” to “car insurance” or vice versa) can make big changes.

Is one term right and the other one wrong? Well, that depends other search factors, such as geography. 

The bottom line is the SEO world is an evolving ever changing world. Don’t let your site stay static.

Reds baseball, almost at The Break

Let’s face it, the Reds are not a playoff team, yet. But their are reasons for optimism.

T10th – MLB team batting average

T10th – MLB team home runs

11th – MLB team OBP

10th – MLB team hits

4th – MLB team stolen bases

3rd – MLB team fielding pct

We are a small market team and continue to improve the old fashion way (developing thru the minors).

If our pitching can just stop leading the majors in walks,  earned runs, total runs and home runs given up, maybe we could be on to something.
