This blog has been gathering dust the last week....
I'll have a fresh update tomorrow as the Broncos get back on the ice to host the Brandon Wheat Kings. The team has a Boxing Day practice and a full skate today.
I'll be arriving back in Swift Current some time tonight.
I checked out the Canada/Latvia game in Saskatoon yesterday. I'll share some thoughts on that tomorrow....not so much about the game but about the set-up and atmosphere at Credit Union Center.
Did you see or hear this....?
Diet Pepsi must have dropped a boat load of $$$ to get all the signage and promotion at the rink. Can't say I'm impressed with their "Eh-Oh-Canada-Go" cheer attempt. Their efforts to get their promotion staff to get the crowd to cheer the "corporate" chant was weak. Fans are smarter than that. It resembled more of a hostile takeover attempt.
If you missed it, they had Pepsi staffer posing as a regular fan sitting in sections around the rink. The "fan" would then get up and try to get their section and the rink going. People saw through it I think. Well... I did.
It's not gonna fly if the reaction from fans in Saskatoon is any indication.
It'd just not in the spirit of sports at all.
An "A" for effort though.
Enjoy the rest of your holidays and we'll see you at the rink Monday night.
