Seems we will be saved of the over the top Amway advertisements at the Joe. Thank god.

 

This will also open the door for the new rink to be called "Little Ceasers Pizza Pavilion" haha

As bad as it was to have the amway pyramid scheme associated with the Wings, I always like to remind people that it could have been worse.  Just look at who the Blues' sponsor is...  Yikes!

Evil pyramid scheme is much better than Monsanto, a company which, imho, personifies evil incarnate.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Excellent. Now, if we can get rid of the DTE Energy sponsorship as well, then we'll really be golden.

I hope Larry "Ratings Killer" Murphy didn't have anything to do with this.

I really don't like hearing that while the goal horn is blowing and the crowd is roaring. It really kills the high.

It'd be cool if Datsyuk sponsored the Wings for a game, just so when Zetterberg scores, we'll all hear "Zetterberg scores!!!  THIS GOAL IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY PAVEL DATSYUK.  BECAUSE EVEN WHEN HE DOESN'T SCORE... HE SCORES."

No. When Z scores you will just hear "Haaaaaaank"

I guess I've always been too busy cheering to notice that  :lol:

Thank the powers that be we don't have to put up with Scamway anymore.  And someone asked what's wrong with DTE...well, other than my sister and brother-in-law both work for them, they fall under the Ernestine school of thinking (for those of you too young to remember Lily Tomlin, Ernestine the telephone operator was one of her characters)..."we may be the only (insert your own greedy) company in town, but we screw everybody."

The DTE goal nonsense is the worst. Put your logo near center ice and be happy. No one needs to hear a sponsorship during a goal celebration.

Good. Now hopefully the scoreboard will also follow suit so that the Red Wings logos at the corners won't be covered up and will look like this once again.

Now can we just get the Trojan company to sponsor the Senators?

 

I know, Trojans are from Troy.  Spartans are from Sparta.  Potayto, Potahto.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Kroger looks like the major sponsor now, if memory serves, as they're mark is all over the huge banners that are above the jumbotron at the Joe.
