Cyan, teal, aqua, aquamarine. Whatever name you wish to call it, that light shade of blue/green was out in force this week.

(OT) A step in the right direction

April 12, 2007

navratilova subaru ad A New York Times article debunks some car owner stereotypes — specifically, the one associating Miatas and Mini Coopers with the gays.

The conclusion? While we can afford two-seaters (no kids) and more expensive monthly payments (again, no kids), at the end of the day, we end up buying the same cars as everyone else.

…which isn’t to say that you won’t see the occasional blue Miata speeding down the main drag of your local Boys’ Town, its presence announced by the Deborah Cox song blaring from the speakers…

…which isn’t to say we aren’t grateful for Subaru: they led the pack of car manufacturers with direct advertising to gay consumers. Martina Navratilova began endorsing the brand in 2000. Other car companies have followed suit.

The post-Davis Cup coverage of the U.S. team has been generally favorable. The Blakes got their due, Bob Bryan got his two cents in, and now we know that the NetHeads have nothing to do with the internet (or your school’s cafeteria, for that matter).

But I should point out this article from The Huffington Post that left a bitter taste in my mouth. After the tie, the Spaniards hung out with tennis fans at the Marriott where both teams were staying, but the U.S. players were nowhere to be found. Tsk, tsk. The “wham, bam, thank you, ma’am” approach is no way to treat your fans.
