Frivolous much?
Yeah, I hate it. During Avalanche games around Christmas they play commercials from Lexus and Cadillac about buying cars like that for people as gifts. Worst part is some of them are downright mean spirited about it, like you're not a real person if you can't buy a Lexus or Cadillac for your spouse for Christmas.

All the advertising that happens during Avalanche games is for really expensive or high class versions of normal stuff. It goes to show how they think of hockey fans as nothing but cash cows that can be endlessly milked, all while they raise ticket prices by about 10% each season and force their bread and butter fans right out of the arena seats.
