For the record: Derrick Coleman far wealthier than I'll ever be

You never wake up in the morning and set out to offend Derrick Coleman. At least not intentionally.

But, hey: life happens.

Over the weekend I picked up this little nugget about a sale featuring furniture once owned by NBA veteran Derrick Coleman from AOL FanHouse.

I opted not to equate the sale to any type of economic woes, something the original post sort of implied. It was a good call.

Moments ago, the good people at FanHouse posted a brief apology. Turns out, word got back to Coleman -- who didn't appreciate the rumors of his financial demise.

For the record, I was more captivated by the clip art basketball hoop on the advertisement than anything else. Plus, as a native Michigander, I find Tim Horton's doughnuts delicious.

And I think it's great that Coleman is giving back to Detroit and wish more people would follow his lead. It's very admirable.

But, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that Sherwood Studios will hold another sale -- which it billed as "75% off" for "many custom pieces ... plus stunning accessories" -- on Jan. 24-25.
