2006 World Cup

Bet you didn't see that title coming. That's right; the pinnacle of sporting events for everyone in the world, except for the USA, starts today in Germany. A little more on the World Cup towards the end of the blog because right now it is time to congratulate the Dallas Mavericks on their first ever NBA finals victory! It wasn't the best game, but when you can win by 10 with two of your stars unable to find their range, it speaks very well for your team. The Mavericks did what you must do in that situation and found a way to win with their defense and timely shots and a little Jet Fuel. Congratulations to Jason "Jet" Terry on a terrific performance. So if you are on the email list, print out your Mavs Yogurt Playoff Pass and make sure to come by and see us for your free small yogurt today!

The bagels did not come in yesterday. They have been delivered this morning. There was no reason given for the delay in shipping by UPS other than their ubiquitous "weather condition." Sorry for the delay, but we do have all varieties available including the Pita and English Muffins.

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Caramel, French Vanilla, Pina Colada and Lemon.

This weekend is a Crème Pie Weekend. We have all of our crème pies available for $12.99 (regularly $19.99) in addition to our Pie of the Month, the Millennium Pie.

We have also received our new product: The Gnu Foods Bar. These are available in Banana Walnut, Cinnamon Raisin and Orange Cranberry. Each bar has 12 grams of fiber and is only two Points® for Weight Watchers®. Great flavor and taste are packed into each bar.

Fun Fact Friday: The "Star-Spangled Banner" was written to the tune of a drinking song. The tune is attributed to John Stafford Smith's "To Anacreon in Heav'n." Anacreon was a classical Greek poet who wrote of love and wine. Francis Scott Key set his lyrics to the popular pub tune to commemorate the defense of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. (This fact brought to you by the Fact or Crap daily calendar.)

If you've made it down this far in the blog then you must like Football or you're looking for the birthday wishes. If it's the latter, scroll down a little bit further. Today marks the start of the 2006 World Cup. The single biggest sporting event in the world draws over 30 Billon viewers, has over 42,000 hours of dedicated programming and is viewed in over 213 countries. More than 2/3 of the world lives and dies by this sporting event every four years. Here is the schedule. For those who want to learn more about the World Cup, read this 2 Minute Guide. I've decided to be responsible in my blogging of this event so you don't have to worry about daily updates. There will be for the next month a bonus feature for World Cup Wednesday and Soccer Saturdays. Don't worry; the other content will still be there. Go team USA!

Happy Birthday wishes to Michael J. Fox, Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman. The ninth of June is a good day indeed. I couldn't choose between them. Want a free mini (4 oz) yogurt? (Limit one per person.) Name the award for which these three actors have been nominated.
