    And we’re moving on.

    Don’t let up. We have this one in our grasps.

    Well that answers that question.
  4. Toys R US shutting down

    http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/17/news/companies/toys-r-us-closing-questions-answered/index.html This CNN Money article answers some questions about the upcoming closing and especially why the Going Out of Business sales haven’t begun quite yet.

    Down 1 guys. We can win this. So what does this mean for race 2 of the MKRA season?
  6. Toys R US shutting down

    My closest TRU is in a plaza near the long vacant Summit Place Mall in Pontiac, MI and somehow has survived while other stores have left the area... until now that is.

    Following the Coins win, Fuzzer addressed reporters about UMBC and thear shocking victory over Virginia being the first 16 seed to beat a 1 seed in March Madness: "No one thought it would happen and now it did. Virginia played terrible on the court and it clearly showed in the end with that 20 point margin of victory. Unbelievable."

    Man. We’ve seen crazy things in sports since 2016. From 100+ year World Series curses to Cleveland’s City curse to a Premier League team winning with 5000-1 odds and now... a 16 seed beating the 1 seed in college basketball. And on April 2, I’ll get a free $5 Hot n Ready Lunch combo from Little Caesars.

    Good thing the Coins don’t play until tomorrow.
  12. Toys R US shutting down

    And yet they haven’t said anything about it on social media... yet. Probably waiting until the details are all final.

    So we just take on Marble Zone or do they have to face someone to face us?
  14. Mario Kart Racing Association - 2018 Season

    A high ranking marketing executive for the MKRA recently told MK Business Daily that when it came time to seek team sponsors for the new teams this season, they had a rule not to sign a sponsor they felt was on their “last lap,” or about to close down. Case in point: Toys R Us. The exec said in the article: ”We have smart contacts in the US that helped guide us in the various deals and steered us in the right directions for many of the sponsors. In terms of retail, we were able to get Target and Amazon on board even though the former had some finance issues that got fixed thankfully and both companies are doing great financially. When we had designs for possibly getting Toys R Us on board though, we were told about various reports saying they were in trouble and that if they went out of business during the season and sponsored a team, that team would lose it’s main income immediately and frankly, we don’t want to see an unsponsored kart on the track at all.” Indeed the beloved toy chain and it’s financial woes did force them into Chapter 11 bankruptcy and caused stocks in toy companies like Hasbro and Mattel to drop and while the chain did say it planned to remain open on social media channels last week, liquidation sales could begin as early as this weekend, wrapping up before the start of summer. ”We sure dodged a bullet there,” the exec said. “It’s a shame that iconic companies you think could last forever eventually bite the dust but that’s business for you in a nutshell. As the saying goes: only the strong shall survive.”
