of the Day" on our ASI Intranet today is: "Every
exit is an entry somewhere." I liked it, so I thought
I'd share with you (who am I turning into – Charley
from Snugz?). I like these products, so I'm sharing

Match Game The Pitch: I
don't smoke and I'm not a pyro,
but I love matches. I do. I grab the free matchbooks at restaurants and
bars any chance I get. They have a whole variety of uses: lighting candles,
firing up the barbecue and setting the chimnea ablaze on a cool summer
eve. You can't go wrong putting your logo on a matchbook, and Admatch
Corp. (asi/31490) has a combined order discount: When you
order two or more different products with the same logo (choosing from
matches, coasters, napkins, toothpicks, etc.), you get 5% off the
whole order. Web address: www.admatch.com. Expires
12/31/08. The Bottom Line: Get on it, Sparky.
Isn't That Special? The Pitch: More
than ever, older folks are enjoying life to its fullest and are often more
active and involved than some of their children and grandkids. Have you
seen the singing group "Young at
Heart?" They are all over the news these days. Check out their version
of Coldplay's "Fix You." I dare you not to cry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u6k-99qcCE.
Mother's Day and Father's Day are coming up and Enjoylife
Inc. (asi/52492) offers a golf-variety, three-ball gift package
with either "Special Grandmother" or "Special Grandfather" imprinted
on them. They feature high-quality, two-piece construction for consistent
control, distance and durability. Logos are printed in high-gloss inks
that will not chip or fade with use. Call supplier for pricing. Web address: www.enjoylife.com. The Bottom Line: Respect your elders.
Hey, Batter Batter! The Pitch: Don't mess with the house that Ruth built,
or the new Yankees stadium that someone else is building either. You've
probably heard about the construction worker who buried a Boston Red sox
jersey while helping build the Bronx Bombers' new ballpark (did you
put him up to that, Ross Silverstein?). Curses! Well, then another worker
went right in and jackhammered it right out. Baseball fans can be a little
fanatic; hence the word "fan." Ball Pro Inc. (asi/38120) is
offering EQP on item #BRL, an official league leather
baseball, for fanatics of all affiliations. You must ask for the special
to receive it. Web address: www.ballpro.com. Expires 4/30/08. The Bottom Line: Swing away!
Donkey vs. Elephant The Pitch: We're really excited here in Pennsylvania,
because one week from yesterday is our Democratic primary. Seriously, I
am addicted to "Hardball" and "Race for the White House" on
MSNBC. Politics can really get people stirred up and we presented this
cool item from Bey-Berk International (asi/40445) in our
April edition of Advantages: Item #G509V is a tarnish-proof silver-and-gold-plated
political tic-tac-toe game. Republican (elephant) vs. Democrat (donkey).
Pricing starts at: Qty.-1; list price-$35; price code-P. Web
address: www.bey-berk.com. The Bottom Line: Rock the vote.
Gutter Talk The Pitch: Would
an "Obama08"-logoed bowling
ball have helped Barack bowl any better in PA? Probably not (ya either
got it or ya don't), but LogoStars (asi/67875) is
offering a way-cool 6-inch mini version (#10153), that can be decorated
with, logo, graphics, and copy to create a special trophy for those who
actually "got game." It can also be used for a tournament memento
or keepsake. Think of pro shops, leagues, alleys and any bowling-themed
promotion. 72-hour turnaround for any order under 1,000 pieces.
Call supplier for pricing. For the record, I saw Hillary try to bowl on
the "Ellen" show and she performed miserably also. Web address: www.logostars.net. The Bottom Line: Bowl me over.
