Shaun Alexander to hawk Vista at Best Buy

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 2:29 PM

More of Microsoft's marketing plans for the launch of Windows Vista next week are coming together. On Tuesday, the day the software officially becomes available to the masses, Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander will show up at the Best Buy on 120th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue, along with plenty of Microsoft guys.

But the coverboy of the "Madden 07 NFL" video game -- a top-selling title on Microsoft's Xbox 360, as well as competing consoles -- appears to be taking a back seat to NBA star LeBron James when it comes to selling Vista.

On Monday, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates will be a busy guy, not surprisingly. In addition to an appearance on "The Daily Show", he'll be chatting in the morning with NBC's Today show.
