The study analyzed tweets from all 31 NFL markets (both the Jets and Giants are included in the New York market) to determine how various NFL fan bases felt about Sam’s arrival in professional football.

Once a mainstay of the Tin Pan Alley music scene, Colony is now the last  man standing, and it shows. The creaky drawers and scarred slide-top  cases of CDs; rows of faded, autographed celebrity head-shots; and bins  of retro concert posters are all hallmarks of a business that still has  one foot squarely in the past. Just like back then, the mainstay of the  store is sheet music; scores and fake books take up the majority of the  space, covering everything from Broadway shows to be-bop.
