|June 3, 2005, New York, NY - Executives at SportsInteraction.com (www.SportsInterAction.com ) offered to step into Jason Giambi's endorsement gap today when they extend an endorsement deal to the embattled Yankee star.|
SportsInterAction.com (SIA)- one of the world's largest and oldest online gaming sites - today revealed its endorsement offer worth up to $3 million per year to Giambi, who recently saw Nike, Pepsi and Arm & Hammer depart from his endorsement camp in light of reports that Giambi has used performance enhancing drugs. SIA believes the superstar still has huge market value in the sports world.
A formal offer letter was submitted and phone call was placed to Giambi's agent, Arn Tellem late yesterday afternoon following news of Nike's withdrawal.
SIA executives agreed that Gaimbi, despite his recent difficulties, has long-term marketing value; Giambi will rebound and perform as always has.
This is a classic story where a star hits rock bottom and someone comes to his side as he rises from the ashes.'
With the obvious controversy of having a sports figure signing an endorsement deal with an online gaming site, language in the contract would forbid Jason Giambi from making any kind of bets on baseball, at any level.
