Sell the PBA to Cindy Margolis, even she can run the PBA better than THESE clowns-so-called "owners" have been since they bought it back in 2000.

ESPN does absolutely nothing to promote the Tour, and it proves in the dismal Nielsen ratings, the bombing of the TOC on what was supposed to have been the triumphant return of the PBA being back on ABC for the first time since 1997 (no spots/commercials/TOC promos on ABC programming and no billboard space bought from Clear Channel, Lamar, or CBS, as they (the PBA clowns/owners) wanted us to do their work for them via the web/Facebook/myspace/Twitter/word of mouth/flyering, etc), and the time slot it has on Sundays considering the competition the other networks, especially ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC have going up against it, Cindy Margolis would be a better owner of the PBA and she would do her absolute best (she has a Bachelor's degree in Business from Cal State Northridge) to make sure the sponsors are there (and more of them) in the demographics the PBA wants to target (18-49-year-olds, the MTV generation and generations x/y/z).

These would include Pepsi, how about infusing new companies into the mix, like Ice-Watch (www.ice-watch.com), whom could sponsor the "Ice-Watch Change of The Day/Match" (Ice-Watch's slogan is "Change. You Can.") involving tactical changes like a ball or line change that wins the title for that player, or even how about getting Bridgestone/Firestone back in the mix for the first time since 1993, and even have PBA Golden Girl herself Kelly Kulick in their commercials like she was earlier this year. We already have Bayer aspirin, and with more non-Bayer/Brunswick-related brands/companies and sponsors (excluding the 1-800 TV offers) the PBA would become from a joke to a powerhouse much like Vince McMahon took a fledgling regional promotion like World Wrestling Entertainment (WWF/WWE) and turned it into the multi-billion dollar global empire that it is now. If Vince McMahon can do it, so can Cindy Margolis, provided she buys the PBA first.

BTW, Ice-Watch is the hottest timepiece in Europe and here is one of their spots that floods the air/cable waves throughout Europe (if only I could see Osku, Belmo, Mika, Dom Barrett or Stuart Williams wearing one on TV now):
