Good Or Bad Marketing Idea?

Is this what is has come to in Phoenix?? The Coyotes have sunk to such a depth that they have entered a partnership which basically says buy booze and get a free ticket to one of our games. Is this really what it has come to?? Then again it might get Charles Barkley or John Daly to an NHL game!!!

Can you imagine the uproar if one of the Saskatchewan WHL teams had this promotion. Dare I say it but John Gormley would have a field day with it. Speaking of promotions, if Dan Plaster or Cliff Mapes from the Pats are reading this(and I hope they are), here are a couple of ideas you might want to ponder......
Remember George Kell. When we started getting WDIV in Detroit as part of our cable package from then Cable Regina now Access Communications, Kell was the play by play guy for the Detroit Tigers. The long-time Tiger, who I believe is in the baseball hall of fame, called the games on TV with another former Tiger Al Kaline. Kell passed away today at the age of 86. I always remember watching games with him that I don't think he knew what the names of the teams were because when discussing someone from the other team, it was always the guy who plays for the (insert city name here) ballclub.
Did you see Providence Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask lose it last night. Check out this footage...

Isn't that the team Pats defenceman Victor Bartley went to go play for once his days in Regina were over. I'm guessing Bartley would have had quite a chuckle over that.

On another note, I got back behind the microphone today for an hour. The guys that run Gameday on Regina's Community Radio Station 91.3 CJTR asked me if I wanted to sit in with them to get my thoughts on a variety of things including the Riders, Terrell Owens and the Ovechkin celebration. It was a lot of fun. Thanks guys!! We'll do it again!!

You were at Pats games this year. They gave me a reason to drink while watching that effort. Maybe Wisers should do this with the Riders. That sellout streak would surely continue then.
