True Rivalry Inc. Announces Partnership with Rocket Sports Media
MONTREAL, QC. – March 23, 2013 — This week, Rocket Sports Media, Inc. (RSM) and True Rivalry announced a new partnership created to give passionate sports fans a different way to make their voices heard. The initiative is led by Rick Stephens, President and Founder of Rocket Sports Media, and Jason Portnoy, President and Founder of True Rivalry.
RSM is a digital media publisher of premier sports and entertainment websites like All Habs Hockey Magazine (AllHabs.net) and Hockey Pub (HockeyPub.com). “We have become a trusted source in the hockey world, hold a dominant position in social media, and we are a recognized leader in organizing fan events,” says Stephens. RSM holds a mission to provide an all-encompassing global reach for sports enthusiasts by finding ways to inform, entertain, and engage them.
A partnership with True Rivalry (TrueRivalry.com) goes a long way towards fulfilling that mission. True Rivalry is a Montreal-based sports apparel designer and manufacturer specializing in unlicensed merchandise geared toward fans of all sports and teams. “We cater to all levels,” says Portnoy, “from the ones who would miss their own wedding for a playoff game, to the casual fan, and even to the person who just wants to wear a cool and stylish looking tee.”
By combining the influential online presence of RSM’s brands and their popular fan events with the unique, quality merchandise of True Rivalry, sports fans will have an opportunity to speak their mind and support their favorite teams in an array of different avenues: online, in person, and as part of their wardrobe. Stephens believes fans will greatly benefit from this new collaboration and adds, “At Rocket Sports Media, we are committed to being innovative in our industry and responsive to our community. I’m thrilled to be involved with a company that has a similar business philosophy and has demonstrated a distinct ability to tap into the pulse of passionate sports fans.”
Portnoy agrees that the partnership with RSM is a perfect fit for him and his growing company. “I just think the ideas for collaboration are endless. I am excited to be working with a group that shares the same thought mentality, strategy, and vision that we pretty much use to run True Rivalry.” He adds that he has admired the work of RSM as a loyal reader of All Habs Hockey Magazine. “It’s a website that isn’t afraid to start a conversation and debate.” Stephens is equally supportive of True Rivalry’s products and says, “It’s refreshing to work with a business that’s helping fans to truly express themselves and make a statement. They accurately capture what’s in the minds of sports enthusiasts and offer a quality product that you are proud to wear.”
True Rivalry merchandise will appear in various giveaways, promotions, and prizes online and at RSM-sponsored events.

Michael Jordan said in an interview with NBA TV that, if given a choice, he would take Bryant over LeBron James.
Widely considered the greatest player of all-time, Jordan said it would be a tough choice between Bryant and James. However, Bryant's five titles with the Los Angeles Lakers compared to just one for James with the Miami Heat, would be his deciding factor.
"Five beats one every time I look at it," Jordan said. "And not that (James) won't get five. He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one."
Of course, Bryant has been around a lot longer than James to rack up his titles. Bryant is in his 17th season while James is in his 10th.
James, in the midst of a record run where he has put together at least 30 points and 60 percent shooting in six straight games, was not too worried about Jordan's choice.
"It doesn't matter to me," James said at the Heat's shootaround in preparation for Thursday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. "If you take Kobe one and I go second, it doesn't matter. I don't get too involved in what guys say about me or if you take Kobe or if you take LeBron. As long as I'm on the floor and I make plays for my teammates, I don't do what I do for other people's approval."
Jordan, who turns 50 years old on Sunday, won six championships with the Chicago Bulls and was named NBA MVP five times over his celebrated career.
Thrilled to announce the signing of Pat Curran, the current Bellator Featherweight Champ, to it's team of MMA fighters.
Pat will be wearing TR this Thursday (Jan 17 on SPIKE) when defending his championship against Patricio Pitbull.
