As detailed in a Cheap Seats column in July, Bernie Dancel is more than an assistant coach for Good Counsel.
Dancel also donates a whole lot of money to the program, for facilities (Good Counsel plays at Dancel Field) and scholarships for students who happen to play for the powerhouse team.

Wait just a second... The AMA's...Hmmmm...Isn't that a Dick Clark Productions production?

Another day, another update on Dan Snyder's Cheerleader Car Wash Sweepstakes. Another chance to run that fab/yucky photo from Snyder's WTEM promotion, the one that's sucked in some of the most brilliant minds in new media to our humble comments section.

Cheap Seats Daily: The Johnny Rockets Menu Proves Dan Snyder Is Priceless?

Dan Snyder's detestability rating enjoyed another spike yesterday: Reports out of FedExField for the Tampa Bay game have Snyder confiscating paper bags at the entrance to his stadium, so fans couldn't put them on their heads for the TV cameras.
