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 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.
Akron-brand motor oil.
Nice logo. That "A" would look pretty sweet on the side of a football helmet.
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.
Bowden Ball 2014.....Fiat Lux.

BTW (B&G), to find this thread I typed "+reference +random" in the search box.

From the video game LA Noire:
You'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.
lol didn't see that you posted this last year. I just finally got around to playing LA Noire and came across this last night. Great stuff.
