Dynasty Notes – Part 12

New format for Dynasty Notes: bullets. It makes it much easier for me to write it, takes out the fluff, and will ensure that these babies get printed more often.

  • Dynasty Athlete Representation logoBaseball: Gerard Haran has been tearing up the Atlantic League with the best team in Independent Baseball. As of writing this post, Gerard is tied for fourth on the Newark Bears in batting average with a .333 AVG. He was instrumental in the organization’s recent 9 game winning streak, driving in the winning runs with a 2 out single in one of the match-ups. Haran should start getting looks from MLB teams soon. Dan Leatherman has been scorching the competition in the Washington Nationals extended Spring Training down in Florida. In 4 games of work he logged 7 innings with a 0.00ERA, 11 strikeouts, 3 walks, and gave up one solitary hit. Someone took notice, because he is currently on his way up to the Hagerstown Suns (A). If you are near Hagerstown, MD, you should stop by a game, because if Dan puts up similar numbers, he will be in double A in no time.
  • Bowling: Chris Loschetter is the newest member of the always growing Dynasty Bowling Division. Expect more additions soon, as Bruce Falcon is busting his butt daily to bring more respect to this sport that does not get the credit it deserves (just look at its Sunday ESPN ratings). We also developed some nice player profiles for our clients, which should help with marketing them to corporations.  One of our interns will be making plenty of cold calls today.
  • Entertainment: Lauren Jones will be making a guest appearance on FX Network’s Rescue Me, a show that focuses on the professional and personal lives of New York City firefighters after the trauma of the September 11, 2001 attacks, which is going into its 5th season. Danielle Wolfe was winning the competition to become Miss and seemed to have it in the bag, until the eventual winner grabbed thousands of votes out of nowhere right before the polls closed. Shady tactics will not bring Ms. Wolfe down. The President of is reviewing the results, but in our minds, Danielle will always be the champion.  Last note: I have a conference call with a potential client today who would be a very welcomed addition to the Entertainment Division.  More on that as it develops.
  • Football: We recently finished compiling our official confidential recruiting list for the 2009 NFL Draft. Interns have been hard at work gathering contact information, 40 times, etc. for the players that we have targeted to become part of Dynasty’s first class of football clients. We cannot wait to start talking to some of the guys that we have highlighted and hope that they wish to join our family. I should not have to mention that we will not contact anybody who is less than a Junior in college, and absolutely nothing will be in writing. In addition, we are wrapping up signing a person who is going to head the football division. He is currently studying for both the Florida bar exam and the NFLPA examination, which will be taken at the end of July.
  • Basketball: Working on finishing up the contact information for our 2009 NBA Draft recruiting list. More to come on this front in the future.
