Don't see this topic on the board but if so please delete.
It happens in other sports, notably auto racing, soccer, etc., and frankly I'm surprised its taken this long for major U.S. sports teams to put corporate logos on jerseys. And now that the cat's out of the bag I'm sure this will become the norm very soon.
Personally I don't like it, and while I'm quite comfortable with the tenets of capitalism, I am also struggling with WHY I don't like it. I guess the purist in me just doesn't like the iconic uniforms like the Old English "D", the pinstripes, the winged wheel, etc. to be muddied up with "Yum Yum" logos. Also, the naive little boy inside me wants to believe that the teams we root for belong to the community and not IBM.
And while we must acknowledge that all team uniforms already have apparel logos on them, let us at least agree that we will NEVER see some corporate shill logo on the maize 'n blue.
Lots of families have "their" brands. It's why many of us are Wolverine fans. Some folks fathers were Ford Truck guys, their father was a Ford Truck guy, etc. Infiniti even has a commercial taking a dig at BMW with this brand loyalty ethos at its center.
So - are you a brand loyalist? And/or is there something that you'll NEVER buy again? (this crowd seems to like the hate, so I mean, what did that Ford do to you?) Let's hear some stories
My friends and tackle this conundrum occasionally. Thought it might be fun to see peoples responses on here.
If you had to choose between wealth or celibacy which would you choose?
Money- It can be whatever you want it to be. $100 million up to infinity. You have zero wants or desires when it comes to physical assets.
Celibacy- You can talk to the opposite sex but it has to be stricly platonic. You are not allowed to get intimate, ever.
If you choose money you can not be with a woman, if you choose women you are jobless and broke.
Which option do you choose?
TL;DR - What's your most versatile mixer/ingredient?
Full story: The wife and I are headed to a "Stock the Bar" couples shower this weekend and I'm more of a "beer & wine" guy than a liquor drinker. As is the groom-to-be (we're good friends). He mentioned that part of what he's excited for with the Stock the Bar thing is getting more things to use when hosting, the ability to make cocktails when entertaining, etc. I plan to buy a bottle of Koval Whiskey (not sure what kind yet) http://www.koval-distillery.com/newsite/ as it's local and fancy enough, but I was hoping to get a couple of ingredients/etc. to go with it. Do I do a fancy bottle of simple syrup and some bitters? Or are there better suggestions out there?
No word on whether the ranched is an Ohio State fan.
Men, women, idiots and dumbasses. It's Friday.
The good news: I get out a couple hours early.
The bad news: It's for a doctors appointment where I'm going to get something shoved up my bum.
