Remember when they came up with "play hard" and had to pull it because the team was loafing on the ice?

I hated doing marketing pitch lines. You feel no matter what you put out there, it'll be cheesy. Plus, you know it can backfire on you.

That said, if the marketing team failed, so did everyone else, because NO ONE would have thought we'd be scoring less than Napolean Dynamite right now.

But we'd get to second, maybe third base quite often. Or get completely shut down and c--k blocked by a backup goalie.

With the usual grabbing of the females breast? The LA Kings-we score more off the ice where it matters.

It was either Jim Beam or Wild Turkey. Jack Daniels is a black label...

So basically it tells the reader than they never get laid.

Then shows a pic of Jack Johnson.

I was on the redline yesterday and there was a Kings advertisement showing Williams and Johnson...I don't suppose 99.9999% of redline riders would know the difference though.
