It's story time! Imagine a weary, aching journalist walking through an enormous showroom at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Showcase in Las Vegas. This poor fellow spent the last several hours looking at countless gadgets and displays. But then something catches his eye. It's the Human Touch HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair, a recipient of a 2008 Innovations Design and Engineering award. So he set down a bag of press kits, removed his shoes and took a seat on the award winning chair. His legs snuggled into two concave indentations on the leg rest. His head settled against a cushioned head rest. A helpful booth attendant gave him a smile and pressed a button on a remote control. The chair immediately began to recline. He experienced an odd sensation it felt almost as if the chair would dump him on his head. Perhaps he had fallen prey to some sort of torture device designed to punish weary convention visitors. But worries soon melted away. And along with them went the tension and stiffness accumulated after walking for miles along aisles of electronics. The massage chair used rollers, air bags, heat pads and vibrating surfaces to ease his aches and pains. The massage routine lasted for several minutes before returning him to an upright (but very relaxed) position. The journalist put his shoes back on, picked up his bag of press kits and made his way back to his hotel. While Human Touch says the HT 7450 as the world's first zero gravity massage chair, other manufacturers offer their own zero gravity models. But what is it that makes these massage chairs zero gravity? Do they hover? Do they provide the user with a sense of weightlessness? Is it just a clever marketing gimmick? We'll find out in the next section. The Cost of Comfort Human Touch lists the suggested retail price for the HT 7450 as $3,999. The Zero Gravity Massage Chair from Sanyo will cost you $4,999. It seems relaxation isn't cheap. 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Aqua Safari White Aqua Volt ,Nike Air Foamposite Onered Supreme 543390 043 Air Jordan 6 Retro Turbo Green Gs Black Volt Ice Turbo Green Black 624041 700 Nike Air Foamposite Pro Volt 656503 720 Air Jordan Future Volt White Nike Kobe 9 Low EM Premium Laser Crimson 616750 600 Nike Air Foamposite Pro Area 72 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 Air Jordan 5 Premio Black Black Metallic Silver Air Jordan 5Lab3 Black This year, Oprah really outdid herself. Oprah Friday episode, Things of 2010, Part 1, brought so much joy to audience members that medics were on standby. The list of her favorite things of 2010 included a royal Caribbean cruise and a diamond encrusted watch! ?Oprah ?went out like no other in show business. Her final season finale came in two parts. Part 1 of Oprah Things of 2010 showcased some of the most valuable pieces of jewelry and gifts, ever. Oprah audience of about 700 people all received a loot of goodies including a Philip Stein watch studded with 58 diamonds, a tote bag and shoe combo by high end designer Tory Burc, a 3D Sony Bravia TV, and even a trip to paradise, a 7 day cruise to the Caribbean! There is no doubt about it, Oprah knows how to push people buttons. She knows how to get a reaction from her guests. Oprah audience members probably left the show feeling like they had won the lottery! Why not? They scored some of the best things of 2010 and they didn spend a penny. 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Aqua Safari White Aqua Volt,The Predictalator is "the most in depth, state of the art sports prediction software ever created," according to its inventor.If you're a numbers nut, they've got you covered. If you're a let's play the game type, they apparently have you covered too because every game is played 50,000 times. (And you didn't think Brian Cushing's overtraining would come in handy again.)Anyway, the Predictalator has the Colts winning the AFC South, ahead of the Titans and the Texans and their 8 8 record. Actually it's 7.9 8.1, but you don't get credit for a tenth of a win in the NFL standings.The Predictalator says Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson is the most important rookie in the AFC, and that Houston makes the playoffs on only 25.1 percent of its computer runs through the season. (Compare that to the Titans at 45.9.)I don't usually pay much attention to these type things, but I had three minutes to waste and some of the stuff was interesting. I probably should have dropped this one at the one minute mark when I saw its predicted power ranking for the Texans' offense (eighth) and defense (26th).Now, I haven't played the season 50,000 times, but I don't see the latter being anywhere near accurate. If it has the Texans' defense as the seventh worst in the league, the Predictalator must see some injuries coming that the rest of us can't see.Its pick for the NFC Championship Game: Green Bay over New Orleans 26.8 26.6AFC Championship Game: Jets over Baltimore 17 14.Super Bowl: Jets over Green Bay 21 17.Of course, its weekly picks are for sale.I'm noticing (when I notice, and as I said, since I typically don't pay much attention to them, I could be way off here) that most predictors have the Texans in the 8 8 range and out of the playoffs.That would not be a good season. If Year 5 of the Gary Kubiak era ends at 8 8 with no playoffs, it will be a long year.Everyone talks about the Texans' tough schedule.Don't we have to wait until at least one game is played to determine just how difficult the schedule actually is?I wouldn't be surprised if at the end of the season the Texans will have played only five playoff teams (six games because of Indianapolis). That won't look all that difficult.Don't be surprised if the Texans' playoff hopes come down to their two late season games against the Titans. Win 'em both and they're in. Lose them both and Tennessee is in; Texans out.If there is a split? Get back with me, I still have 50,000 scenarios to play out.You right when you say that you can tell how difficult the schedule is until you actually start playing games. Funny thing I noticed is that so many people are picking the Texans to take a step back because of the difficult schedule, but then they go and rank most of the teams on their schedule below them in their power rankings. I think only the Cowboys, Ravens and maybe the Chargers have a clear cut talent advantage over the Texans. as for the tough NFC East, only the Cowboys go in without serious question marks that could derail their season. . .I anxiously awaiting Saturday. My biggest issue with the Texans is that they really didn address either side of the line and personally I saw that as their biggest weaknesses.Complain about the running game, bring in a new back, do whatever; but a good O line can get almost any back one yard. The problem wasn the backs as much as it was that weak, undersized line. A good chunk of that is aimed at Myers. How well can a team be expected to play if the middle is constantly collapsing? I much rather have a big, strong, physical O line, than a small, fast, nibble O line that can get to the next level quickly.Then you have the defensive side of the line. Did they even make a quarterback sweat once last season? How can you have a line that sucked at stopping the run AND getting to the quarterback? It would been nice if they could done at least one of those things. The strong linebacker core made up for some of the D line shortcomings, but with Cushing benched the first 4 games just think everything starts with the big uglies. They may not get the commercials and highlights, but to me those are the guys that make it happen. I want to see how the Texans have improved from a training standpoint since they didn see it necessary to upgrade the personnel on the field.this lost all credibility by predicting a Jets Packers Super Bowl. Is it just me, or is everyone forgetting the Jets were a struggling 7 7 team that were gifted their last two games that vaulted them into the playoffs? I know they had an impressive offseason from a glamour standpoint, but it doesn seem as though the moves they made have catapulted them above the elite teams of the AFC. As long as Brady and Manning are in the AFC, it will be difficult for any computer to pick a team other than those two to represent the AFC.As for the Texans, as much of a fan as I am, I have to agree with every prognosticator who thinks we be an average team. It just seems as though we haven done enough to get to a level of being a true competitor in our own division. Going 1 5 or 2 4 in the AFC South makes it that much more difficult for us to have a 10 win season.I hope our boys prove us, and this calculator, wrong.wouldn surprise me at all if the Jets fail to make the playoffs. And that feeling has nothing to do with the Revis holdout.I read Kubiak comments about Ben Tate and I not encouraged. From reports I read, Tate has the same skill set as Chris Henry, except Henry is playing hard every practice. What your take on the Texans RB battle?like many rookies has to learn what it takes to succeed in the NFL. Kubiak has a doghouse and he in it. Don be surprised if after all the training camp accolades, Henry doesn see the field except on special teams. There is plenty of camp left, and the games matter most, but Foster has looked pretty good, Slaton OK and Tate either terrible or great, depending on the play. Henry has looked like the one playing for his dinner.Kubiak is the first coach in 30 years to make it to Year 5 with a team without making the playoffs. At least McNair isnt in any hurry and Kubiak has you media guys with his back no matter what goes wrong. John McClain is already on record that Kubiak should get Year 6 even if the Texans dont make the playoffs.

Sam, a standout defensive lineman at the University of Missouri, could become the NFL's first openly gay player, testing both the sport's boundaries and the attitudes of the companies that pay athletes millions of dollars to endorse their shoes, apparel and brands. Companies may have shied away from gay athletes in the past, but attitudes have shifted enough that Sam's sexual orientation shouldn't stop him from getting the auto, soda, soup and other endorsements that have come the way of other NFL players, branding experts say. In fact, his bold decision to come out before NFL teams consider him in the May draft could boost his appeal to marketers. Sam said he was gay in a video posted on the New York Times' website. "He has raised his visibility by this announcement, which can be a benefit," said Jack Bechta, an NFL agent and president and chief executive officer of NFL Advisors, which handles marketing for clients including ex Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris and Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux. "We're in uncharted territory as to what a brand might think," Bechta said. "I can see a brand like Nike taking him, absolutely. sports, has aggressively promoted a message of inclusiveness and earlier this year launched its BETRUE shoe collection with rainbow colors in support of gay pride. Last year, the athletic shoe and apparel brand sponsored National Basketball Association player Jason Collins and hailed his "courage" for being the first male athlete active in a major sport to come out. On Monday, Nike said it was "committed to diversity, inclusion and human rights." "We believe in a level playing field where an athlete's sexual orientation is not a consideration," the company said, in response to a question on whether it might sponsor Sam. Sam has not signed any sponsorship deals, his publicist, Howard Bragman, said. His team has turned down interview requests from major TV personalities as Sam prepares for the NFL Scouting Combine that starts February 19, and the draft in May, Bragman said. "The focus is on getting ready for the combine and the draft," Bragman said. "We are not talking to sponsors yet." Few NFL players sign deals before they are drafted. Potential sponsors will watch to see which team signs him and consider how big an impact he makes on the football field, said Bob Witeck, a gay marketing strategist and corporate consultant. "The judgment that any team is going to make, or any brand is going to make, is if he delivers," Witeck said. "His performance is the No. 1 thing." Sponsorships can bring pro athletes millions of dollars each year. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning earned $13 million from brands including shoe maker Reebok and Wheaties cereal, according to 2013 report from Sports Illustrated. economy in 2013. One major company, hotel chain Marriott International, signed on as a sponsor for the Gay Games, an LGBT sporting event that will take place in August. Despite the lack of precedent, few brands will avoid Sam simply because of his sexual orientation, marketing experts say. His personality off the field will matter much more than his sexuality, said Paul Swangard, managing director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of Oregon. "His announcement is way down the list of things that a marketer will consider," Swangard said. "Does he have charisma? Is he of good character? Does he make himself visible on the team?"
