Bits & Pieces

  • Life Time Fitness, Inc., a national operator of distinctive and large health and fitness centers, today announced that the company will offer Dominator Clothing's line of premium fitness and yoga apparel for men and women at 36 Life Time Fitness locations nationwide by the end of 2005. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed. (I wonder if Dom ever paid the money he owed to a Detroit area mall for walking out on his lease.)
  • TNT’s coverage of Game Seven of the Heat-Pistons Eastern Conference Finals on Monday drew a 7.5 cable rating and 6.75 million households, making it the most-watched NBA playoff game in cable history.
  • The Baltimore Orioles began selling season tickets and tickets for tours of Camden Yards over the Internet this year, and they are “experimenting with making parking passes available online” and hope to have bar code readers installed on some parking lots within the next couple of years. The Orioles are also working on a system that will send e-mails to fans’ cell phones alerting them of the seats “still available for that day’s game.” Fans would be able to “purchase a ticket with the press of a keypad button,” after which a bar code would be sent to the cell phone to be scanned at the ballpark.
