Unnecessary branding.


Buffalo

Ahh, there's nothing like elementary school lunches like half pint servings of chocolate milk. Back in my K-5 days, the Bills were good enough not to advertise.

:P

Consider this the "Found Porn" section of Maxim.

And by "porn" I mean ironic images containing sports logos.

I think it could be funny.

Merry XMAS

What's with the hole to punch through? In my day, you had to open the carton by pulling apart the gabled top. And if the glue was too tough and didn't separate, you had to open the other end. And if that didn't open, you had to tip everything and spill it all over your shirt.

That is an act known as lactomangulation, just in case you were wondering.

That's not a straw hole. You punch that to vent your frustration at the Bills this season.

Didn't you guys hear the news? The Buffalo Bills invented the punch hole... sand they're sponsoring the dairy as a way to lure fans to Ralph Wilson Stadium!

I worked for a trade magazine that covers promotional marketing, and it was amazing how many brands do what it takes to get associated with an NFL team if they can't afford actual league sponsorship. As we get a little closer to the Super Bowl, watch how many are giving away "tickets to the big game in Detroit" because they don't have permission to use the words "Super Bowl."

What this has to do with anything, I'm not sure... I think I have to start thinking "paid holiday today" instead of "let's talk shop" :D

This past Halloween Snickers was sponsored by MNF or maybe the other way around, but on the Snickers miniatures one side of the wrapper would be a team's helmet color and have the team logo on it with the wordmark underneath it. Most of the teams got the right color except the Colts who were put on a red wrapper. :blink:

I once saw some Sun Tan lotion a few years back during the 2002 Winter Olympics, and it was trumpeting itself as "The Official Sun Tan Lotion of the US Ski Team at Salt Lake City!". At first I was puzzled. Then I realized how much sun those skiers must get from the reflection of the sun off the snow.

heh, US Soccer wiggled its way onto Snickers bars years ago...and appropriately, the Packers have an official cheese (though I forget which type it is)

I konw one thing, I love my queso B)

Westby Creamery is the official cheese of the Green Bay Packers.

Sargento Cheese is the official cheese of Lambeau Field.

I wish I was making this up.

I just finished off a bowl of Turkey Hill "Eagles Touchdown Sundae", the official ice cream of the Phila. Eagles. I'm about to open up my Utz Eagles potato chips. Tomorrow, I'm off to the mall to visit one of the Eagles End Zone outlet stores, then go home and watch the game while drinking a Miller Lite, the official beer of the Eagles, even though Coors Light is the official beer of the NFL.

Not surprised you would know something like that, like Lee knowing the official STD of the Blue Bombers.

Wow, I feel sorry for you. Not because of all the branding, but because you're an Eagles fan! (dance)

That's OK, Philly had a nice run there. Have a Tastycake and celebrate the holidays!

Not to be a wise@$$, but it's Tastykake, with two Ks. :D You want to make sure you get that right when talking to us Mid-Atlantic types. :D

And, BTW, Butterscotch and Jelly Krimpets are two of my all-time favorite snack foods. I don't know if they are the official snack food of anything, though, to stay on topic.
