Two housekeeping items
A.) BB&T, which absorbed Colonial Bank, has signed a lucrative sponsorship deal with Auburn. Here is what I received in the inbox:
BB&T Corporation (NYSE: BBT) announced today it will become the retail banking partner in three Auburn University athletic venues, including Jordan-Hare Stadium, through an agreement with the Auburn ISP Sports Network. It is the first major sports marketing agreement for BB&T in Alabama.
B.) The Southeastern Conference has issued its "final" credential policy for the 2009 season. It includes changes that my parent company, Gannett, considers positive. Those changes include additional flexibility in internet news coverage, uses of photographic images and clarification in the provisions of blogging.
I am now cleared to accept credentials and cover games. This is good.
