I think the hardest one would be thatDETROIT - Shortly before 9 a. Ben Garland Jersey .m. on the day after the worst night of his life, Rikk Wilde got the phone call from his big boss at General Motors.Yes, he committed a nationally televised, major-league blooper while presenting pickup truck keys to the World Series MVP. No, he wouldnt be fired. Now get out there and sell some trucks.The call, from Chevrolet Vice-President Brian Sweeney, had to be a relief for Wilde, who makes his living as a zone manager and liaison between GM and its Kansas City-area dealers.The Chevy leadership team called and told him he did nothing wrong. Its all good. Everyone here has his back, said Michael Albano, the brands top spokesman.GM had lined up Wilde, a lifelong Royals fan, for the postgame presentation because hes a good employee and loves baseball. There was hope that hed be giving the keys to a Chevrolet Colorado to someone on the home team. But instead it went to San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, who saved Game 7 by shutting out the Royals for five innings.Wilde had practiced for the moment, an effort to draw attention to GMs newest product, and brought notes just in case he forgot something.He did.When Fox Sports announcer Erin Andrews introduced him, he was sweating. As he started to say his lines, he became breathless. He stumbled and had to look to his notes. He ad-libbed a line that would bring guffaws on social media: It combines class-winning and leading, you know, technology and stuff, with Wi-Fi powered by OnStar.#Technologyandstuff was trending on Twitter, as was #ChevyGuy, with many comparing Wilde to the late comedian Chris Farley.ChevyGuy is the most hilariously awkward person ever, one person tweeted.Chevy really sold me on their new Colorados with that class leading technology and stuff and immediate recalls!!!, another tweeted, an obvious reference to GMs safety problems.But around 1:30 a.m. EDT, Albano said he noticed the sentiment starting to shift.We LOVE the #Chevyguy! Dont change a bit #Wildeman!, wrote one tweeter.We saw quickly the technologyandstuff tagline kind of take off and start to trend, Albano said. Thats when you realize that you have something there that you might want to embrace.GM got a bigger chance to promote its re-entry into the small to midsize pickup truck business because Wilde drew so much attention to the usually forgotten MVP presentation.Chevy even used the #technologyandstuff in a tweet from a corporate account, linking to an ad.He was on message, Albano said. The truck has technology and stuff. We will use that term and stuff. Solomon Thomas Jersey . Rooneys latest piece of football genius lost in the furore which now stalks David Moyes, and the man who gave the Manchester United striker his start as a 16-year old at Goodison Park back in 2002. Wilbur Jackson Jersey . Funny, they looked like longtime friends during Pittsburghs 5-1 demolition of Dallas on Tuesday night. Quick to the puck and even quicker to the net, the Penguins top line overwhelmed the suddenly struggling Stars as Pittsburgh bounced back from a dismal weekend sweep at the hands of Philadelphia by jumping on Dallas early. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-jimmy-johnson-jersey-large-1028d.html . After making his All-Star debut in Fridays Rising Stars Challenge, the Raptors sophomore centre wont be sticking around for the duration of the weekends festivities, thinking about the big picture instead.Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Atlantas All-Stars came through again. Paul Millsap, Al Horford and Jeff Teague had plenty of help as the Hawks pushed their franchise-record winning streak to 18 games.

Kyle Korver added 16 points and Kent Bazemore had 12 points in 40 minutes off the bench as the Hawks won without injured forward DeMarre Carroll, who sat with a left Achilles strain. Millsap, Horford and Teague were all named to the EEastern Conference All-Star team on Thursday, the first time since 1980 that three Hawks made the game. Antone Exum Jersey. Atlantas Mike Budenholzer will coach the East in the Feb. 15 game at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Hawks havent lost since Dec. 26 in Milwaukee. And at 39-8, they surpassed last seasons win total (38-44). They could secure a perfect 17-0 month with a win Saturday against Philadelphia, which will end a seven-game homestand.
