What an interesting week in sports for this Boston fan. First, the Celtics lost a tough game 7 of the NBA finals to the Lakers who had a great game by Ron Artest. Surprisingly, I think Artest was the best player during the Finals, and it was neat to hear about him celebrating the victory in Hollywood after the game in his full uniform.
The following morning the US soccer team faced a difficult opponent in the World Cup – referee Koman Coulibaly, who disallowed what would have been the winning goal on a phantom foul. “Sleepy Eyes,” as he is known throughout the soccer world due to his droopy eyelids, now has a website dedicated to him – KomanCoulibaly.com (not mine).
On to some Sunday updates:
- Burbank.com is almost ready to re-launch, and I am very excited about the new site. It’s currently being tested, and I hope to have it re-launched in the next two weeks. The Scottsdale.com and Cities Planet teams have worked hard on getting the site re-launched, and they already have more advertising commitments than I was able to achieve.
- It would be very interesting if a company like Cities Planet was able to sell advertising space on developed websites. There are companies where webmasters can submit their available space for advertisers to select, but it would be great if there was an independent company who worked on behalf of website owners to seek out advertisers. If there is a company like this (maybe I am forgetting) please let me know.
- I’ve noticed a lot of people asking questions about .CO, the likelihood of successful investment in .CO and its impact on .Com domain names. I really think it’s premature to speculate and those who post questions like that or read responses should realize it would only be speculation. There will be plenty of people who invest a lot of money in .CO names, but it will all come down to consumer adoption, which is contingent upon business marketing. All of this is TBD.
- Today is the last day to get the MiniSites.com Deal of the Week. There will be another deal in its place beginning sometime tomorrow morning. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out.
Funny thing about the World Cup is that the group the US is in will be decided entirely on the last game. Because three of the four games have been ties, any team that wins the third game has a good chance of advancing while losing the final game will likely result in elimination. Funny that the US could advance with merely a tie (if England loses) but it would obviously be kind of strange to advance on three ties.
Great name on Scotsdale.com! (edit this until you reg it but get scotsdale.az from marcaria just in case)
Regarding .co, it will flop IMO. The ‘good’ names are either trademarks or will be auctioned at high prices and marketing will stop once the money doesn’t keep flowing in.
The referee is an anti-USA.
Lucky for him that the error he made is at civilized USA …..well, you can imagine if it on some other countries!!!
Elliot… I liked the “I really think it’s premature to speculate and…” sort of an oxymoron. 😉
stick to domaining – you know very little about hoops – artest played solid defense against pierce but he’s in a serious fog on offense – i’d say 5th best finals performance: kobe, gasol, pierce, rondo, artest
@ Michael Carter
LOL… That is true.
