FRIDAY EVENING NFL OWNERS CONFERENCE CALL: ROGER GOODELL LABOR UPDATE

Kraft: You have to be kidding… Roger, it’s 18 games or a lockout.

Dan Rooney: Agreed. Don’t listen to these lunatics.

Davis: Rooney, show some respect, your father and I once bedded a trailer full of circus freaks in Akron after a two-day coke binge. Your father had some moxie, unlike you, young fellah. You should have seen him, took the bearded lady for the team.

Rooney: Oh, God…

I remember Akron popping up a few times in the sitcom "Home Improvement." There's a national commercial for Sonic out right now that wonders what a guy from Akron would choose: Chicago dog or NY Dog?

From the video game LA Noire:Posted ImageYou'll run across a bus ticket from LA to Akron sitting on a suspect's dresser. I did a double-take when I saw it.

I don't know if this is the right spot to post this, but as I was watching the Pitt/USF game, as they scanned the crowd after Pitt sacked BJ Daniels I spotted a rogue Akron fan.

Akron-brand motor oil.

Nice logo. That "A" would look pretty sweet on the side of a football helmet.

I was wearing my Atlas football/soccer jersey at the CSU-Northridge game, and Uncle "Tank" from the soccer thread mentioned that he had seen it in the FIFA (12?) video game. "Lubricantes de Akron" is the shirt sponsor of the Guadalajara-based club in Mexico's Primera Division. Found it on e-bay last winter for $20. Pretty cool. :wave:

edit: Here's what the long-sleeve version looks like. Mine doesn't have the Coca-Cola or Corona on the back, but it does have the Skyy vodka on the sleeve.

Here's something very strange: They seem to know things about us in Turkey that we didn't even know. Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu is an Akron alum?

I had heard she attended UA (I think the Wiki UA article mentions it also), but wasn't aware that she graduated. This link confirms that she did attend.

Just watched the flick "Unthinkable" again and (re)learned that the terrorist in the movie named Younger is from Akron. He is very dedicated, reminds me of Zach.

I can't remember if I posted this already on another forum or not, but here's an episode of Criminal Minds that the setting of the episode is in Akron, Ohio. Here it is:
