Our “This is Sportscenter” commercial taping ran over, so we didn’t go on until 11AM. Sorry if you tuned in at 10 to catch us.
The good news is, we’ll be on ESPN again tonight! 8 PM EST on ESPN (not ESPN 2) for College Football Live. Check it out if you have the chance!
Before your regularly scheduled candy review, a plug for my personal life. Today, I will be conducting the Yale Precision Marching Band LIVE! on ESPN’s First Talk. We’re scheduled to go on at 10 AM EST (note time change from original posting) for a quick performance of our fight song. First Talk airs on ESPN2 and ESPN HD live from 10AM-Noon, EST, and the day’s episode is then rerun from Noon-2PM EST. We’re also shooting a bit of a “This is Sportscenter” commercial today, which should air sometime in the future. Hope you get the chance to tune in! And now back to candy.
I get NY Times emails for breaking news, like when election results are posted, when famous people die, when big business things happen, etc. Here’s one I got at 3AM Sunday night/Monday morning:
Subject: News Alert: Candy Maker Reported Near Deal for Chewing Gum Giant
Candy Maker Reported Near Deal for Chewing Gum Giant
Mars, the makers of M&M’s, was near a deal last night to
acquire the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, the chewing gum concern,
for more than $22 billion, people involved in the talks said.
The transaction would create a confectionery behemoth and
could pressure rivals into a cascade of other mergers.
Candy can make headline news too!
