It’s information overload everywhere, and there’s not time enough to sleep and eat and stay fully apprised of what’s happening on this crazy blue dot of ours (two out of three ain’t bad).
Here’s the weekend Sports Handle item, “Get a Grip,” rounding up top stories in sports betting and gaming, and the world of sports at large. You may have missed them, and they are worth reading. This is meant to be brief, so that’s it.
In First-of-Its Kind Deal, NFL’s Dallas Cowboys Partners With Oklahoma Casino
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has broke new NFL ground after partnering “America’s Team” with a casino business. The Cowboys on Thursday announced a partnership with WinStar World Casino in Oklahoma, owned by the Chickasaw Nation Tribe, according to Reuters. This is the first time a casino has been granted status as an official team partner, and allowed to use a team’s logos and trademarks. The deal was made possible after NFL owners amended their bylaws to allow casinos to obtain official partnerships with NFL teams.
