Default Gallery Furniture...

is running a FULL PAGE ad on Thursday in the Chronic that says at the top - PLEASE PICK VINCE and has a pic of Vince running the ball.

Another full page ad-assault is coming our way.

Keep hope a lie!

Where did you hear about that?

Loving our local sports guys is so disgusting. I'm outraged!

Maybe he should "SAVE - HIS - MONEY" and buy his own team.

It's all good for me. Some of you are taking this too seriously. It's a game folks! I like it that our city has taken such a passionate interest regarding it's football team. Imagine what it'll be like when we finally make the playoffs! By the way, someone should run a full page Reggie Bush ad. to counter the VY supporters.

I think it is great that a local company is doing that. I hope that VY goes to the Raiders and we cut DC in two years and VY comes back home to Texas to do the work that the Fresno Kid could not.

I agree - I think it's all fun. However, to Mac..once he hits a tangent, he goes nuts!

Otherwise - it's just great drama (No pun intended)!

Aw . . whatsomatter? You don't trust Kubiak, Sherman, McNair to make the proper football decision.

Take your marketing, hometown flavor and hang it in your . . .

Vince Young is so elusive that he can walk the entire path through Gallery Furniture and only be asked "Is anyone helping you?" 1 time

I trust they made a decision and I trust they will have execution problems with Carr as the former staff did, but I will digress on that beat horse.

Marketing, nah. Just makes for a good story for a franchise that has not had many. Sending a kid in from California to do a Texan's job is hard work.

What an embarassment to our city (this instance).

I love the charitable work he does, but leave running our sports teams up to the people that own/run them. If you pulled every advertising dollar I promise you they'd find someone else willing to pay it. Paying for advertising at games and buying front row seats does not give you power to use your clout to cry and whine about how the team is ran.

This will be the 2nd full page ad taken out by Holly F. Mackenvale. Too stupid to know that this type of stunt will only make McNair dig his heels, if anything, against the local marketing special interest groups.

Either that, or he wants all the sad VY faces from the draft party to over and buy some furniture, and give a 2% discount to everyone who still says "Keep hope alive"!

Why? Is he asking the Texans to take a Longhorn instead of an Aggie?

No way. Breaking the laws of physics is one thing, avoiding a commissioned sales person is quite another.

My wife, who is a media buyer for a advertising agency calculated the cost of the full page ad in the Chronicle at $34,701. That is for a non-color ad on the weekday.

Wow, what a waste of money...Mac can't honestly think that this will sway the Texans FO, he's probably just trying to play to the Longhorn faithful and get a few more people into his store to buy some crappy Bob Timberlake recliners...
