Now think about the Chicago Bears. One of if not the worst team in the NFL by the end of the season. A city that loves football booed their team off the field game after game. That follows a nearly 20% increase last year.Related: Thanks, Steph Curry! Under Armour’s sales and stock soarSure, another Masters win for Spieth and NBA title for Curry may not necessarily lead consumers to rush and buy more Under Armour shoes en masse.But it doesn’t hurt especially since Under Armour is still a relatively small player in the business when compared to heavyweights Nike (NKE) and Adidas (ADDYY).The strong performances of Spieth and Curry clearly help raise brand awareness for Under Armour much like the dominance of Michael Jordan did for Nike back in the 1990s.As a result, she thinks Under Armour could generate more than 20% of its sales from international markets by 2018 and that’s a big reason why she just increased her price target for the stock.Related: Jordan Spieth lands big Coca Cola endorsement dealSpieth and Curry may not have the star power of a Jordan just yet. But both are young and seem to be getting better each year.Under Armour also has reigning NFL MVP Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers as an endorser and the past two MVPs of baseball’s National League: Bryce Harper and Clayton Kershaw. (Kershaw, a pitcher, has won 3 Cy Young awards since 2011 too.)So Under Armour has the star power and earnings expectations worthy of a Wall Street MVP award as well.
I know I tweeted, ‘Black lives matter,’ but all lives matter. My doorman is more important to me than any head of any company. He keeps us safe. It the best job in the world. I can believe it a job. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world to be there.

But as we were playing five a side together, he kept addressing me as Sir Geoff instead of just Geoff. “Pass it, Sir Geoff,” “Over here, Sir Geoff,” “Leave it, Sir Geoff.” It was very nice, but come on! It shows how respectful he is and what a class character he is. He is so down to earth.
