To anyone who thought that sports was the one sector that was untouchable during tough economic times:  Here are two New York Times articles showing how corporations are having to pull their sponsorships from various professional sports, including but not limited to NASCAR, cycling, and golf (PGA).  Perhaps the corporate sponsors with a traditional presence who have been hit the hardest are the American car companies, such as General Motors and Buick.  The higher-market sports such as football (NFL) are also seeing a pull back in sponsorships by struggling corporations affected by the economy.  One poignant example of this is how last year GM paid for and aired 11 advertisements during the Super Bowl ($3 million each).  This year, GM has not requested any slots during the Super Bowl due to lack of funds, which is pretty incredible, considering they were the leading sponsor of sporting events for the last five years.

Here are the two articles:

George Tanber wrote a recent article for ESPN.com on Lorena Ochoa, the number one ranked woman golfer in the world.  For the talented Ochoa, a 26-year old Mexican-American, her accolades on the course are numerous, but it is her influence outside of the arena of professional golf that Tanber explains makes “the definitive mark of a memorable champion” and creates a lasting legacy.  You can read the entire article at the link below as well as the most current LPGA golf rankings and pictures of Ochoa.
