Be a Good Sport The Pitch: Did you see the Jets' sideline coach trip one of the Dolphins yesterday? Whoa there, fella! That's not going to win you any sportsmanship awards. For those more deserving of such accolades, Classic Medallics Inc. (asi/45330) offers a gold sportsmanship medal on a ribbon, with a pin back.It's boxed too. This is perfect for all those kids' sports teams out there (there are tons of them!). Pricing starts at: one for $6.90-M. Web address: http://www.classic-medallics.com/. The Bottom Line: Give yourself a sporting chance.
A Cut Above The Pitch: My husband is always stealing my kitchen scissors for things unrelated to the kitchen. This drives me nuts! This is why I think a great pair ofkitchen shears would be a perfect giveaway.Berghoff Int'l. Inc. (asi/40217)has a nice pair with soft blue handles and an ergonomic grip. Great for all kinds of cooks and then some. Pricing starts at: 25; $5.53-R. For more info on item #2003008, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Get snippy.
Scraping By The Pitch: With all the crazy snow business this weekend (blizzards, Metrodome collapses, etc.), seems like the right time to bring up the Icedozer Plus from Innovation Factory (asi/62667). It has a patented FlexiBlade with icebreaking and tenderizing teeth and power squeegee brushes. Plus it comes with a detachable pocket dozer with squeegee brush, ice notch and small scraper. You can get it for EQP less 3% until12/31/10. Email email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Break on through.
Home for the Holidays The Pitch: Where are you going for Christmas? Both sides come to our house every year for my big turkey and ham dinner (my mom makes the stuffing). I can never have enough extra blankets and pillows around and I like this item from Microfurr (asi/71086): It's a pillow that unfolds into a 50 x 60-inch thick comfy blanket with colorful Microfurr on one side and soft black fleece on the other. This item features the logo embroidered on the front of the pillow and lower corner of the blanket. This would be a nice giveaway for hotels, don't you think? Pricing starts at: 12; $19.99-Y.Click here: http://www.microfurr.com/. The Bottom Line: Cozy connection.
