Out of the Blue

I've seen a few sad reminders lately that today is the anniversary of Paul Steed's passing. The former id artist died four years ago today, and in many ways the shock from that persists. Paul would like the attention, but not the mourning. I imagine he would far prefer the takeaway from this to be to appreciate life and friends as best you can. At least that's how I try to view it. I try to use thoughts like that as a reminder to be better about keeping in touch with people.

You are correct, sir. TV does lead revenue but not by much - 2.2 billion per year vs. 1.5 billion in merchandise, at least that's the best breakdown I could find and I don't know how reliable it is.

Also I did not know that US major sports leagues - the NFL at any rate - centrally control and share the digital and retail product profits equally.
