Manchester United's shirts to now read, "USA" rather than "AIG"
I keed. I keed. But the dominoes falling on wall street have diverted my attention away from the game I love so much lately.
The failings in New York have been so unbelievably epic that it's hard not to pay attention, and I have yet to find how AIG's collapse and subsequent bail out by American taxpayers will impact their sponsorship of the Red Devils.
I know the deal struck yesterday between AIG and the US Government has some tight strings attached, so I imagine this will be the last year you'll see that label on any shirt. At any rate, I figured why not have a little fun with it!
