The Cialis Palace


WARNING: the following post is somewhat satire and meant to be taken as a joke, not a real recommendation. If you are easily offended, or everything you read is taken literally, please stop and hit rec and leave the page.

Cialis Palace: If we sell the name, we should have at least gone all the way out and gotten a real corporate sponsor! Why not Cialis? Big pharma is one of the most hated industry's in this nation and would make a great partner for management of the blazers who seem to have little connection to fans. We could use the same slogans such as "RIse up, rip city" in conjunction with this sponsorship. The blazers could focus on the stiff competition we would get every night from other teams coming to play in our special place. Not only that, Cialis would have deep market penetration into the portland area. If you want to get really crazy, you could warm up with blue balls or shoot white t-shirts from certain shaped cannons. yeah.... exactly...

Lets not kid ourselves. The blazers management decided to sell out to capitalism. By selling the name of the home of our beloved blazers, they suckled up to the teet of consumerism. The problem is, that is they had really shopped around and tried to find a corporate sponsor, we would have something better than moda. my personal guess is, moda was so taken advantage of during negotiations and literally had no clue what something like this should cost. Therefore, even when the blazers said they had narrowed it down to "3 candidates" (which obviously they hadn't) they had no choice but accept moda and have them CTC. (cut the check for you new BE members).

As the joke above says, any organization sponsorship would have sufficed. Are you telling me Nike wouldn't sponsor the blazers? Adidas? The tillamook cheese factory?

My rant is over. I hope like me, you will always refer to it as the Rose Garden and dismiss any attempt to believe that this partnership will somehow help the fans experience at the Rose Garden. Put a good team on the floor would be a start....
