Default The ABA's favorite film "Semi-Pro": not too "family-friendly"

So, Unca Joe loves the film "Semi-Pro" and wants everybody to see it, right?

Watch the "Age-Restricted Trailer" on the film's website:

http://www.semipromovie.com

Not too "professional, family-friendly," is it?

Yup, Joe's really gotten that low, to endorse a film that's gonna be rated R if this content isn't edited out...

It's got to be rated R, based on what I saw, doesn't it?

I have a feeling Joe didn't see it.

Can't wait to hear the complaints he gets from angry parents when they talk about the film with him...

Ya know, I bet if the Alaska Botox Advocates had a movie, he'd recommend it just for use of the initials!

I am told that as of yesterday afternoon, Mr. Newman has not seen the film. That according to someone on yesterday's conference call.

TheStandard, glad you brought up Pony. According to my source, at least some of the shoes have show up, along with bills for shipping, much to the disgust of Mr. Newman who is now claiming that Pony violated their contract. According to Mr. Newman, Pony was supposed to market special ABA shoes at retail outlets and stage an advertising campaign for that ABA product. Instead, Pony has just supplied some shoes. I was told he mentioned a "snarky" email he fired off to Pony regarding the situation. My source couldn't remember if the email concerned the shipping charges or the contract.

Just a reminder: The ABA of the film has a passing resemblance to the ABA of 1968-1976.

Actually more of a resemblance than this ABA has to that ABA.

This film isn't about this league. It's about (sorta) that league.

And Corbin Bernsen's film never happened. And never will happen.

Talked to a local Pony sales guy here in Southern Cal who was working on Pricing of Shoes for a BSN development team that I have. Joe knew of the shipping charges for all of the teams and that the ABA was responsible for them. The ABA was to have set up their own marketing plan and buy the shoes that were going to be the Special ABA shoes.

To Joe when he violates contract he then says they violated contract.
