Autumn Athlete The Pitch: Three signs it's officially autumn (besides the calendar): The heat's on at home, my younger son is being plagued by autumn allergies and I have switched to dark red nail polish. Time to switch up the wardrobe too and that goes for athletic types. Tri-Mountain Gear (asi/92125) has a great new layering piece for guys: Item 659 is a men's moisture-wicking 1/4-zip pullover shirt with reflective piping (for nighttime runs and biking). It even comes in Autumn Orange, among other stylish colors. This is perfect for track teams, soccer teams and more. Pricing starts at: one for $54.50. Check it out: http://trimountain.com/. The Bottom Line: Try it on for size.
It's Boss The Pitch: If you're a boss yourself, Happy Boss's Day! Here's asnappy new laptop bag called The Boss from Sweda LLC (asi/90305).The sturdy 600D polyester messenger bag has a large front flap with pocket and secure clip closure. The dual-zipper padded rear compartment folds down flat for quick airport screenings and more. It's perfect for any bossy type. And you know what else is perfect?You can get it at $5 off per bag until 12/31, so consider this for holiday gifts too. Click here: http://swedausa.com/. The Bottom Line: Don't shoot the messenger.
Movie Time The Pitch: So, because it's the month of Halloween and spooky things, they were having a Stephen King marathon on AMC. For some reason, I got caught up in watching "Christine," the '80s movie about the car that possesses its teenage owner and goes on a few demonic killing sprees. It was HILARIOUS (although I don't think it was supposed to be). The only thing missing was some awesome popcorn (because I hadn't done my grocery shopping yet; as I mentioned, I got caught up). Admints & Zagabor (asi/31516) offers 1.5 ounces of gourmet cheese popcorn or butter popcorn in a clear bag with a 4-color laminated decal. These are fun for movie openings, school fundraisers, trade shows, community events, real estate promos, bars, beverage distributors and more. Pricing starts at: 250; $1.45. Click here: http://admints.com/. The Bottom Line: Snack attack.
Give It a Rest The Pitch: Ok, so sports parents are often up on their feet, screaming at the coach or cheering for their kids. But every once in a while, even they like to take a break.Golden Lion (asi/57657) is giving you a break too, with special pricing until 12/31 on new folding chairs that are just what you need for tailgating and other sports-related activities. For instance, you can get item SYBA-100, a folding captain's chair with two cup holders and a carrying case for 100; $13.25.Check it out: http://goldenlionusa.com/. The Bottom Line: Take a seat.
