WHY ARE NBA RATINGS DOWN BUT MARCH MADNESS IS UP?

We’ve talked about the drop in NFL ratings. But now we have a newcomer to the club with the NBA experiencing a 20-percent drop in ratings compared to this time last year. Some would point to the issue of star players resting for prime time games as the biggest reason for the public’s drop in interest.

Why? Because March Madness ratings are up more than 30-percent over this time last year. And based off the money being exchanged on this week’s college basketball betting lines, the ratings increase won’t be slowing down.

Listen to this debate and more on the latest episode of ‘Helmets and Heels’.

I hate going to auto repair shops with a passion. I know nothing about cars outside of if something goes wrong, I’m going to end up at the repair shop all day long.

Unless you live in the Philadelphia area because the “Girl’s Auto Clinic” offers manicures, pedicures and blowouts inside the shop while you wait for your car to be fixed.

Not only can you kill two birds with one stone, but founder of #sheCANic Patrice Banks helps women in the Philly area learn basic things about their cars like how to change a flat tire.

Here’s hoping she franchises the idea!
