"Lance, come back come back here, you owe me your soul." "Get away, I just want one more!" "No, you said that last year, too, it's time to pay up now, c'mon, I have an 8 a.m. appointment with Bobby Knight."

Taking a tip from Nike, the Devil himself decides sports marketing is the most effective way to drum up new business.
