Paul Aaron's Next Venture: Indoor Football

Pinnacle Sports founder Paul Aaron is the new executive director of the United Indoor Football league.

According to a press release, Aaron will officially take over with the league that features the Omaha Beef after the first of the year.

"Between now and then, I intend to use the time to familiarize myself with league operations and plan a schedule for meeting with interested parties who have expressed an interest in the UIF," he said.

Aaron said he was excited about the UIF opportunity because he could use his previous sports marketing and management experience in an new and exciting way.

"It is a very exciting opportunity because the owners are all successful individuals with both the commitment and the resources to take an already successful league to an even higher level of success."

In 1996, Aaron and business partner Dale Jensen founded Pinnacle SPorts Productions, LLC. Pinnacle was the broadcast rights holder for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln sports broadcasts including football, men's and women's basketball, volleyball and baseball. The Pinnacle Sports Network includes 68 radio stations in 16 states. Aaron sold Pinnacle Sports to Triple Crown Media Inc/Host Communications in September, 2006.

Aaron also has more that 28 years in the broadcast industry, primarily in upper management. Several stations he managed broadcast significant college and/or professional sports including Ohio State and Standford football, Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers. His current business interests include a long term consulting agreement with Host Communicaitons and various real estate activities in Omaha .

The UIF's biggest challenge - according to Aaron - is having enough time to follow up with inquiries for potential new teams.

"The UIF is widely regarded as a successful, solid league with many advantages other leagues do not currently offer. Meeting with those who have expressed an interest and making sure that all of the elements for their success are present and that their geographic location is compatible with the location of our existing teams is essential and the first order of business."

Does this mean Jim Rose is going to be the new voice of the Beef?

Does this guy really think Indoor Football will be the next big thing? Maybe they can sell the New Coke at all the games.

Isn't he also the guy that gave Limbaugh his first radio show in Sacramento?

I remembering reading that I believe in an interview once.

Good luck! I enjoy indoor football...get a team back in Lincoln and Kearney while you are at it!

Insiders say Jim was offered the Beef Gig but had to turn it down...way to stressful for him and his family.

When the Beef needs a new coach again...I hear a guy named Callahan is looking for a gig. He's an excellent coach...would do an excellent job.

Goodbye, UIF. It's as if we hardly knew ya'.

I didn't even know that indoor football league still existed. Learn something new everyday I guess...

On behalf of myself and the 17 other UIF fans, I'd like to welcome Mr. Aaron aboard.

Jim Rose once told me that Callahan had an option in his Husker contract to go coach the Beef if they offered him the job.

It's amazing how a guy who was fired from KFAB for financial misconduct and turned Husker sports broadcasts into the train wreck they have become keeps popping up.

Glad I don't give two S#$&s about the Beef, but I feel bad about those that do. They will likely be out of business soon.

Yeah....what happened to the good ol days when we discussed Amanda Mueller's tatas.

I'm still waiting for a more detailed post about Chuck McWilliams' return to KETV.

What about the meltdown argument between the Perrault and the entire OWH sports department. Essentially, he called them Husker Homers and accused Dick something or other of being biased in his reporting.

The Perrault knows not with whom he messes with.

Perrault's pretty much done in this town, and he knows it. Give him credit for swinging at everybody and hoping he lands he a shot on his way out rather than submitting like a poodle to a great dane.

Aaron in as what? You've got to be kidding me. Beef boys, better thicken your skin and get ready for doomsday. This guy is forty miles of bad road. Just ask the affilate stations that were on the Pinnacle Network.

My god... could this thread get any more boring. I know I should stop wasting my time, but I keep hoping some interesting topic will be brought up. Amanda Mueller's "tatas", or even Brandy Peterson's goofy red hat are actually starting to sound like good fodder.

Anonymous said...

how about Brandy Peterson's tatas or nude photos?

Anonymous said...

7:21, we could only wish for photos like that. Or better yet....nudies of my home girl Farah. She is dee-licious.

Boy and girls...apparently taste has left the building as well...

8:51, nah...it's just tht last glass of eggnog. Can't help but picture a Christmas card with Farah on the front...wearing only tinsel and some well placed ornaments to complement her naturally delicious ornaments. She could be my Christmas goose any time.

How about Travis Justice's Ta-Tas? Mmmmm . . . them's nice.

Anonymous said...

I'd settle for Ryan McPike doing the weather naked. And when he says "A chance of rain" warm water should pour down all over his body.

Anonymous said...

sarcasm: ON
Alright, if we have to think about Travis' man-boobs, the "tatas" of Amanda Mueller, Brandi Peterson, and Farah Fazal, and a naked Ryan McPike being drenched in warm water... then we might as well go ahead and imagine Ryan McPike nude oil wrestling with Clay Aiken. With weather graphics in the background. And "It's Raining Men" playing.

Or how about a naked Roger Schwartz doing the weather nude and getting wood as he forecasts a big snowstorm... followed by an explosion of white stuff as he tells us about the 12" of penetration, er, precipitation we'll be getting...

That Latham guy on WOWT doesn't look so bad, I'm sure someone's drooling after him as well...
sarcasm: OFF

My goodness, it's well past time for a new post!!! Jim? Sean? Anyone out there?

7:02 You must be gay... perhaps Matt Meyers? Does anyone remember that guy on 42?

I love Bredow said...

Farrah definitely has ghetto booty. Which is nice since she has the fashion sense of a stripper when on live shots or interviews. About a month ago they she was conducting an interview and they had one angle that included both her and the subject of the interview.....she was wearing a tight skirt.....roughly mid-calf length.....that was slit up the side to damn near ass cheek....tasty

I just wish I could get Andrea in those outfits.

I love bredow said...

6:28 am:

No, you are not alone. And that is not the first (and hopefully not the last) time she was dressed like she had to race to the Playhouse when she was done with her live shot. I could care less if she butchers names and can't get the story straight when she is dressed like that.

Now, if I could only get her to take Andrea shopping.....

How awesome would drive-time weather be then!

I would bang her six ways to sunset if she would let me!

Since they won't talk about anything new, I will. The WOWT website shows the current temperature at 74 degrees with a dew point of 70 and winds out of the SSE @ 7mph. Perhaps they are too busy stoking themselves over this snow we seem to be missing? Top notch flower boy. I wish I could suck at my job like weathermen do at forecasting the weather!

Hey Sean - this is blogging geatness!!!! I compare it to Scott Voorhees looping Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" in the background and listening to people call in on July 4th. I knew that Scott would rub off on you !!!!! You're catching on. GENIUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Despite the fact that I have been one of the most jaded and cynical people posting on here all year, I would like to take this time to wish all the blog a joyous holiday season. Hopefully the 2008...both in the news and other areas...will be a darn sight better than 2007 has been. Let's face it....can't be much worse.

Huskers vs. Mavs Bowl Game

What did y'all think of Matt "the Cheese Schtick" Shick's made up bowl game tonight? Courtesy of EA Sports, I thought the Ganz character looked pretty good-- what a pass! Wonder if he gets into any trouble for incorporating the clips of Behrns and Callahan into a nonexistent game???

In comparison, KPTM filled out its sportscast with sports bloopers; WOWT ended its sportscast with the year's highlights in sports. Didn't catch Attack 3's sportscast.

stella was a diver and she's always down said...

I just now saw that EA sports game on KETV.com. Brandi Peterson's reaction was priceless. You could tell she was thinking "What a dork"

Captain Caveman said...

Since it was Christmas, I think we can cut the sports guys a little slack. It's not like there was a game against North Carolina Central or planes to track on flightaware.com.

With no bowl game for the Huskers(sans the one played out on KETV), you gotta fill the time with something entertaining. As we all know, we all have HUGE audiences during Christmas!

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. A week ago I played around this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Ps3 Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

Hails all! I run a underground tattoo supply business in Los Angeles. Since 2002 I've been purchasing all tattoo equipment at bulk prices but my supplier killed himself (yeah, hard to believe) so I'm in search of a good tattoo equipment seller (online or offline) to buy tattoo supplies from. Here is an example of what I need: Tattoo Supply. Thank you very much in advance for any information guys! PM me or send me an email: triple6tattoo@hotmail.com
