Morning Brew for 11/5

-In Monday's Morning Brew I mentioned how Kellogg's cereals were going to help prevent you from getting the Swine Flu. Well, apparently that was just a goof. The cereal maker has decided to pull the immunity claim off of its boxes of Cocoa Krispies, and Rice Krispies. So I guess we are all stuck with getting a regular old flu shot. Too bad.

-The New York Yankees captured their 27th World Championship last night in The Bronx with a 7-3 victory of the Philadelphia Phillies. Free agent to be, Hideki Matsui, was named the World Series MVP. I have been searching for a clip of Fox's Chris Rose doing perhaps the worst job of all time interviewing "Jetes", and "Mo" last night after the game. What a joke that guys was. If you happen to see a clip of it, please send it in.

-Michael Jordan's son, Marcus Jordan, is a basketball player at the University of Central Florida, which is an adidas school. When UCF played their first exhibition game this week the younger Jordan decided to wear Air Jordan shoes on the floor which is a direct violation of the school's contract with adidas. This nullifies the shoe companies contract with the school which will end up costing the university nearly $5 million. Hmmm.... and my wife thought that I paid too much for shoes. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes the Jordan Brand, or Nike to become the new apparel provider for UCF.

I posted a couple of links yesterday on our Twitter page yesterday. Since it is such a slow day for links today I figured I would pass them along again here.

-AT&T has filed a lawsuit against Verizon Wireless over their "There's a Map For That" ads. AT&T is claiming that the ads are going to mislead Midwest users into thinking that their service is useless. They are asking for the ads to be pulled ASAP.

-The Bro Bible has posted The 15 Best Man Caves on the Internet. I don't think there is a man alive that wouldn't kill to have his own Man Cave. Some of the pictures they show here are incredible.

As always, if you find a link online that you think will help folks kill some time during their day please e-mail it to You can also follow us on Twitter. The account is @8hourstokill.
