Global soccer is enjoying a sponsorship bonanza, attracting $4.5B in 2012, or more than any other sport and and two-thirds above last year. Manchester United (MANU) is among those to benefit, while sponsors are guaranteed a global reach at the high end of the game."Compare it to running an advertising campaign in 120 countries," says United sponsor Aon (AON), or as the FT puts it, killing "120 birds with one rather expensive stone."

    It's amazing. Ron Paul is cosidered unworthy of any type of following, yet Rinaldo is admired by millions. That's why I dont socialize much with other people. They are just too simple minded for me to interact with.

     

    America could be on its way to ruin, and if Tiger Woods makes a hole-in-one during a tournament, that is all anyone talks about.

    Ron Paul is a minor league player.

     

    Anyway Cristiano Ronaldo, if that is whom you are referring to is more popular than the Beatles. http://bit.ly/18vjxf5

    World Cup should provide a boost to Brazil and industries headquartered in Brazil. Weak summer markets may provide good positioning opportunities.
