Next year it will begin negotiating new TV contracts with CBS and NBC. In the meantime, the tour is trying to secure sponsors for 10 events in 2011 while economic conditions are not exactly favorable.” And speaking of bubbles, you may also be interested in reading about the great baseball card bubble.
