1. Vance Albitz: A True Web Gem -

Occasionally, the brilliance of an idea is captured in its name. So it is with “Gloves 4 Troops,” the brainchild of Memphis Redbirds infielder Vance Albitz.

Back in November, Albitz read about a deployed solider who said the one thing he really wished he had from back home was a baseball and a glove. Normalcy – always the goal for soldiers in harm’s way – was a game of catch. Albitz understood because as far back as he can remember, holidays at home in Torrance, Calif., meant him, his older brother and father playing catch and having a little informal BP.

2. Time to Burn Brackets -

I have one fool-proof method for filling out my NCAA Tournament bracket. I go straight to the 1 vs. 16 games and advance all of the No. 1s into the next round. Seeing as how a No. 1 seed has never lost to a No. 16 seed, this has never failed me.

3. Post-Trade Grizzlies Finding Identity -

When Rudy Gay talked to Yahoo Sports about needing a change, about the trade from Memphis to Toronto being good for him, all the focus fell on the following quote about Memphis’s new ownership group:

4. Magic’s Offer a Lesson in Obscenity -

Decades ago, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart summed up the definition of obscenity with these words: “I know it when I see it.”

Lately, a lot of national sports observers believe they have seen the definition of obscenity in the NCAA’s flawed investigation into what nevertheless was a rogue athletic program at the University of Miami, and in questions reportedly put to potential draftees at the recent NFL combine including the sinister, “Do you like girls?”

5. Tigers Misstep Under National Spotlight -

D.J. Stephens was 1-for-6 from the free-throw line when, at game’s end, he needed to miss a foul shot on purpose to give the Tigers one last desperate chance at a tip-in that would have tied the game at Xavier.

6. Hollywood Feed Expands, Renews Local Leases -

Hollywood Feed has renewed and expanded two of its Memphis locations.

The Memphis-based natural and holistic pet food merchant is growing its 2648 Broad Ave. warehouse from 44,400 square feet to 77,763 square feet.

7. Williams Continuing Family’s Tennis Legacy -

The other shoppers in the Knoxville grocery store probably don’t know who she is and certainly have no idea what she is doing.

Michelle DePalmer-Williams is, from all appearances, just another mom loading the cart with milk and bread and orange juice, checking her iPhone for text messages and emails.

8. Comments, Victories Becoming Broken Record -

So Josh Pastner’s latest post-game conference is just about to start, this one after a 93-71 victory over Central Florida on Wednesday, Feb. 13, a game the Tigers led by as many as 34 points.

9. New Uniform, Same Rudy Gay -

Rudy Gay is incognito now – disguised as a genuine star player who had to go north of the border to take his rightful place center stage. In his Toronto Raptors debut, Gay came off the bench and scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting, 3-of-6 from 3-point range, in a dominating victory over the L.A. Clippers (albeit, without Chris Paul). In his first start, a loss to the Miami Heat, Rudy scored 29 points on 11-of-23 shooting.

10. Time to Ease Up on PDA With C-USA -

Josh Pastner adores Conference USA. If he were to put this sentiment to music, he would pick up a guitar and sing C-USA-inspired tributes such as “Hard to Love” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” As it is, he will send Valentine’s Day roses and chocolates to the league’s administrative offices in Irving, Texas.

11. Nothing Too Absurd With These Grizz -

Trade 40 percent of your bench to Cleveland, play the Lakers the next night, and everything will be just fine. The Fakers are so bad they might not beat El Segundo Middle School at their gym.

But so what? Teams that make trades to avoid the luxury tax – small-market beggars – can’t be choosers. So the Grizzlies graciously accept the 106-93 victory, marvel at the 27-14 record and No. 4 spot in the Western Conference standings, and do all they can do to keep it going.

12. Pre-Grizz Comments Show Change is Coming -

Deadspin.com has been getting a lot of publicity for breaking the story about the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax. But the site also compiled a list that is of far more relevance to local NBA fans:

13. Gay Must be Traded Either Now or Later -

The time will come – after this season, if not before the Feb. 21 trade deadline – when moving Rudy Gay will be the only sensible thing for the Grizzlies’ new ownership to do.

Unless you’ve been living in a cave – or The Pyramid – you know that Rudy rumors are rampant. Pick a media outlet – from ESPN to Grantland to USA Today – and you can find any number of possible trade scenarios.

14. Forecasting 2013 in Sports -

2013 Sports Forecast by the numbers: 1. The Grizzlies swing a deal before the trade deadline but are fined by the NBA when, out of habit, they try to trade O.J. Mayo.

2. The Memphis Airport is invited to join the Big East.

15. Despite Stats, Some Aren’t Worthy of Cooperstown -

The rules state that you have to be a member of the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) for 10 years before you are granted the privilege of voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame.

I could hardly wait.

16. Easy to See Why Fans are Doubting Thomas -

His Twitter handle is @AllDayThomas. Yet after the first nine games of this Tigers basketball season, Adonis Thomas is the first to admit his play has not lived up to that reputation.

He has been Half-Day Adonis, neither scoring nor rebounding like a 6-7, 240-pound projected NBA lottery pick should.

17. Local Students Give Back With Literacy Program -

A lot of people have good ideas that could change the world, or at a little piece of it. But often those ideas never quite turn into action.

Two Memphis University School seniors – basketball player Jonathan Wilfong and football player and wrestler Andrew Renshaw – had just such a good idea. Inspired by “Caddy for a Cure,” in which an individual makes a donation to a charity and in turn gets to caddy for a PGA golfer, they created “Coaching for Literacy – The Assistant Coach Program for Promoting Literacy.”

18. Z-Bo Bringing Back His ‘Two Years Ago’ Self -

His team had been on his back all night long. Now, with 1:50 left in overtime and the Grizzlies up by five points, Zach Randolph was about to score the last of his 38 points.

Phoenix’s Marcin Gortat had Randolph squared up, preventing a drive to the rim. But Randolph, who scored 16 points in the fourth quarter and OT, wasn’t about to give up the ball. So he drop-stepped time and time again until he finally made his move for real – knocking down a 17-foot fade-away jumper over Gortat’s bald head. A few seconds later, Randolph fouled Gortat at the other end of the court and the FedExForum faithful couldn’t hold back the love any longer.

19. A Sports Writer’s Lament Over Losing -

I’ve closed my home office to University of Memphis athletics director Tom Bowen, coach Josh Pastner, and the entire Tiger basketball team.

Had to do it. I went to the Bahamas for the Sportswriters Battle 4 Atlantis. Lost my first write-off to some spunky kid from the Commonwealth of Virginia. He pressed me and pretty soon I was trapped in a corner, desperately trying to keep him from stealing my thesaurus.

20. Chaos Reigns as Bowl Championship Series Picture Unfolds -

Chaos. That’s the word, apparently the only word, to describe the current state of the Bowl Championship Series. I know this because last Sunday, after a bloody Saturday in which No. 1 Kansas State and No. 2 Oregon both lost, I performed the ultimate modern-day “scientific” test: I Googled “BCS” and “chaos” and got 3,620,000 results.

21. Tigers Fans: Sit Back, Soak it In -

Former Tigers coach John Calipari had a convenient label for fans and media members who dared to question him or worry about less than near-perfect results.

“The Miserables,” Calipari whined on more than one occasion.

22. Challenges Await New Grizzlies Owner -

The professional sports clock has its own idea of time. We were reminded of this when NBA Commissioner David Stern came to Memphis for the Grizzlies’ home opener Nov. 5, which also served as a welcoming party for new franchise chairman Robert Pera.

23. Sports Connection -

Between Jon Albright and Don Wade, hosts of the newly launched the “Jon & Don Show” on WHBQ Sports 56 AM 560/87.7 FM, any topic a sports fan could want to talk about is conceivable.

24. Opening Game Not Necessarily Preview Of Grizz Season -

So on the first day of their new NBA season, the Grizzlies picked up where they left off – losing an intense, physical game in Los Angeles on Halloween night to the Clippers. It was a game that, quite honestly, did not look or feel like a regular-season game.

25. More Than Pujols Can Say -

When manager Tony La Russa retired and slugger Albert Pujols went panning for gold in California, there was no reason to expect the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2012 season would stop just a game short of the World Series.

26. J.D. Byrider Brings First Franchise To Memphis -

The nation’s largest used car franchise company has entered the Memphis market. Carmel, Ind.-based J.D. Byrider has inked 30,900 square feet at 2580 Mount Moriah Road, marking the company’s second Tennessee dealership.

27. Athletes as Frauds: The Fall From Grace -

A cycling wreck leaves scars, layers of flesh skinned by rough pavement, a broken bone or two, maybe a concussion.

So maybe that explains why Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace seems so much farther – and the landing so much harder – than the decline and fall of the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez.

28. Fans Behaving Badly? We’ve Seen Worse -

As a sports writer, there are certain obligations. One is to second-guess coaches at every opportunity. Since virtually no coach in the NFL or college football can manage the clock, and some basketball coaches still stubbornly refuse to foul to avoid getting beat by a 3-point shot, that one’s pretty easy.

29. Rudy Gay Promises More; Memphis Waits to See -

When is good not good enough?

In the case of the Grizzlies’ Rudy Gay, about to start his seventh season in Memphis, it is the question that echoes, echoes, echoes. It gets phrased different ways and we search for different avenues that might allow Rudy Gay to go to that elusive “next level.”

30. Raleigh Office Complex Sold To Local Entity -

An office complex in Raleigh has traded hands after being under the same family ownership for more than 30 years.

Commercial Real Estate Network LLC, a local investor, has purchased the 40,756-square-foot Raleigh Center Office Complex at 2974 Austin Peay Highway from Charles R. Averwater Living Trust for $299,000.

31. New Network Affiliation Bolsters Investec Realty -

Commercial real estate firm Investec Realty Services has broadened its reach beyond the Memphis market thanks to a partnership with the international network of Sperry Van Ness.

A recent franchise affiliation increases the company’s footprint from 10 brokers in Tennessee to more than 700 affiliates in 145 markets, plus another 35,000 brokers who subscribe to the Sperry Van Ness network.

32. Memphis Advantage -

As the industrial market approaches the end of the first quarter, a handful of deals have local brokers encouraged that the city’s bread-and-butter sector is poised for recovery.

Recent notable industrial leasing transactions – all of which occurred in Class A bulk warehouses – include Trane U.S. Inc.’s 625,000-square-foot lease in Chickasaw Distribution Center; Kimberly Clark Corp.’s 556,000-square-foot lease in Airways Distribution Center; and Impact Innovations’ 275,000-square-foot space at Southridge Corporate Park.

33. Investec Realty Svcs. Partners With Sperry Van Ness Int'l -

Memphis-based commercial real estate firm Investec Realty Services is now an independently owned and operated franchise of Sperry Van Ness International, the two companies announced Tuesday, Dec. 1.

34. Omni Visions Deal Headlines Leasing Activity -

Omni Visions Inc. recently signed a new lease at Kirby Gate Business Campus, 2725 Kirby Parkway, for 3,523 square feet.

35. Realizing Dreams -

William Adair’s quad-cab, four-wheel-drive pickup truck is splattered with mud. The office where he parks it out back, a converted country home at the corner of Tenn. 196 and U.S. 72, is littered with maps.

36. Fuhrman Joins Investec Realty Services -

Eric Fuhrman has joined Investec Realty Services. Fuhrman is a Certified Commercial Investment Member and a six-year veteran in commercial sales and leasing.

Hometown: Born in Des Plaines, Ill., a suburb of Chicago
Work Experience: One of my favorite work experiences was training police divers in underwater search and recovery with the National Academy of Police Diving. Later I worked as an estimator/project manager for a commercial construction firm and most recently transferred to Investec Realty Services after five-plus years with Crye-Leike Commercial.
Family: My wife, Joanna, is a local and we have five children – Gabe, 11; Audrey, 10; Sam, 8; Ellie, 4; and Molly, three weeks.
Favorite quote: “A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm,” Charles M. Schwab.
Activities you enjoy outside of work? I love running with the family. We try to hit most of the 5Ks around town. As of one week ago, I am the director of the SYS Golden Saints Track & Field Team. Go Saints!
Why did you pursue a career in real estate? I believe that God never wastes life experiences on us. This field seemed like a blend of many of my life experiences.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? Earning my designation as a Certified Commercial Investment Member was a proud moment although I feel that it is an equally great accomplishment anytime I am able to meet a need for one of my clients through a commercial real estate transaction.
What do you most enjoy about your work? I really like the team concept promoted at Investec. I couldn’t be happier to work alongside Jon Albright and tackle some of the amazing projects we have coming down the pipeline.

37. Hubbard Named MAAR Realtor of the Year -

Regina Hubbard, a broker with Lester Hubbard Realtors, was named 2009 Realtor of the Year at the Memphis Area Association of Realtors’ honors luncheon, held Wednesday at the Holiday Inn-University of Memphis.

38. Commercial Real Estate Hits Doldrums -

When it comes to trends, commercial real estate usually lags residential real estate, sometimes by as much as a year. So with the housing market showing its first signs of improvement during the last month or so, the commercial sector needs to prepare itself for a long, bumpy road to recovery.

39. Lending Biz At a Standstill -

Rick Wood, senior vice president for Financial Federal Savings Bank, recently gave a speech about the drastic decline in institutional lending for commercial real estate loans.

40. Home Sales Outpace Nov. ’08 Performance -

For the first time all year, Shelby County’s home sales outpaced the same month of 2008, perhaps signaling an end – or at least the beginning of the end – to the local housing slump.

November notched 1,154 sales, a 17 percent improvement from 983 sales in November 2008, according to the latest data from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.

41. Stars Start to Align In Residential Real Estate Market -

The first week of November brought a double dose of good news for the beleaguered real estate industry. Not only did Congress extend and expand its first-time homebuyers tax credit, but the most recent local sales report was peppered with positive signs.

42. Q3 Home Sales Up Slightly From Q2 -

Of all the real estate figures floating around, perhaps the most telling is the one showing shrinking membership in the Memphis Area Association of Realtors.

MAAR, the trade association for local real estate professionals, saw its lowest member total in more than five years during the third quarter of 2009 (July through September).

43. ‘Hoops of Fire’ Squelch Commercial Real Estate Activity -

The economy hasn’t extinguished commercial real estate deals, but it certainly has changed the way they get done.

Shane McElveen learned about the tedious process of property acquisition when he looked into buying the High Point Funeral Chapel at 3788 Summer Ave. in the Berclair area. McElveen, who had worked at the chapel as senior vice president, was trying to buy the business from owner G. David Keller.

44. Commercial Real Estate Pocked by Financial Ruins -

Commercial real estate deals used to be hammered out in boardrooms, but with the rise of foreclosures in that sector, many of them are now being negotiated at the courthouse.

The steps of the Shelby County Courthouse proved to be a hot spot for high-dollar, high-profile commercial deals in June, a month that saw the most lucrative transaction and two of the top three sales occur following foreclosures.

45. Housing Market Takes Shallow Dip in Q2 -

Regina Hubbard is one of the local Realtors who saw the challenge of a down market as an opportunity. Instead of hunkering down or following business-as-usual practices, Hubbard reacted to the housing slump with renewed vigor.

46. Commercial Real Estate Takes a Beating -

Commercial real estate suffered a sharp decline in May, with sales falling dramatically from the same month a year ago and the previous month.

Shelby County saw just 35 commercial sales in May, marking a 49 percent dropoff from 69 sales in May 2008 and a 35 percent dropoff from 54 sales in April, according to the latest data from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.

47. Commercial Sector Limps Through April -

The commercial real estate sales volume slowed to a crawl in April, reaching only half of what it was the same month a year ago.

What’s worse, only three deals made it above the $1 million mark, and of those, one was an internal transaction and one was an apartment property that has had revolving owners in the past few years.

48. Home Sales Figures Less Ghastly in April -

April is the first full month of spring, but this past April delivered a more important distinction for Shelby County’s sluggish housing market: It was the first month since October that home sales exceeded the 1,200 mark.

49. Home Sales Freefall Continues in Q1 -

Shelby County home sales continued their downward spiral during the first quarter of 2009, proof that consumer confidence has yet to be restored and that credit issues have yet to be resolved.

Just 3,078 homes were sold in the first three months of 2009, down 25 percent from 4,101 in Q1 2008, according to the latest data from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com. The period’s total marked the lowest first quarter since Q1 2001, which saw 3,107 home sales.

50. Commercial Real Estate Hangs on for Dear Life -

The pulse of commercial real estate is barely detectable, but the fact that it’s still registering a beat is remarkable considering the trauma it’s suffered over the past year.

From March 2008 through February 2009, commercial sales in Shelby County declined 35 percent compared to the prior 12-month period, according to the latest data from real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.

51. Real Estate Gloom Far From Over, Numbers Show -

The first two months of 2009 are in the books, and the real estate market has shown no signs of improving. For the second straight month, home sales declined by a third from the same month a year ago, proof that housing still needs to dig itself out of a deep hole.

52. Year of ‘Havoc’ For Residential Real Estate -

The housing market is in desperate need of a shot in the arm, but only time will tell if the $787 billion economic stimulus bill signed into law this week by President Barack Obama will have a positive impact on real estate.

53. Commercial Real Estate Still Dropping, Stanton Says -

Janice Stanton, managing director of investment research for Cushman & Wakefield in New York, discussed the global financial crisis and how it has impacted commercial real estate at Wednesday’s Commercial Property Forecast Summit, at the Germantown Performing Arts Centre and sponsored by the Memphis Area Association of Realtors Commercial Council.

54. Influence 1 Foundation Names Hartsfield COO -

Felicia Hartsfield has been named chief operating officer of Influence 1 Foundation.

Hartsfield will oversee the continued stability and growth of the foundation’s fiscal, strategic, organizational and operational functions. Her duties also will include building and maintaining relationships with community leaders, as well as creating collaborations, which will enhance the foundation’s strategic model.

55. Calipari Tapped to Rally Real Estate Community -

For many local sports fans, the lasting image of 2008 was the University of Memphis men’s basketball team suffering a heartbreaking loss to Kansas in the national championship game.

For many local Realtors, the lasting image of 2008 was the housing market suffering a continued slump.

56. Albright Draws on Career Highlights To Help Realtors Through Uncertain Times -

Jon Albright is a household name to many basketball fans, and not just those who live here and remember his days as a sharpshooting guard for then-Memphis State University.

57. MAAR Elects Board of Directors -

The new directors are Landis Foy of Crye-Leike Inc.; Steve Guinn of Highwoods Properties; R. Darnell Tate of ERA Legacy Realty; Michael Green of John Green & Co. Realtors; Betsy Kelly of Hobson Co. Realtors; and Randy Jefferson of Hobson Co. Realtors.

58. 2007's Top RealtorsHonored by MAAR -      The Memphis Area Association of Realtors recently handed out awards at its annual gala, including one to John Linthicum of Crye-Leike Inc., who was named 2007 Realtor of the Year. Randy Jefferson of The Hobson Co. Realto

59. Just Say No to Payments -

Shelby County is experiencing a continued downward trend in the number of mortgages filed during the second quarter 2006, according to The Daily News Online, www.memphisdailynews.com.

However, some area real estate professionals say they think improvements in technology eventually could help the market rebound.

60. Collierville Chamber to Relocate, Expand -

The chamber expects to break ground next month on a new facility in Halle Park Professional Centre, adjacent to Collierville Town Hall.
