Canucks and Beyond

Marketing NBA Style

For all the NBA idiocy in the news this week, they do know how to do some stuff right. Witness this Christmas video production for NBA fans. (Click here or the image,  and it will download and open in WMP.)


What might be the NHL equivalent? I’m thinking… a nice, nuclear family of four, a couple of hot cocoas and a cozy sit-down to watch a hockey game after the meatloaf is put away. Then Mom turns on the Christmas tree lights, Dad says, “Time for hockey!” And then the kids (as well as the rest of us) immediately pass out from the boredom of it all.

C’mon, NHL. Gimme something fun!  Rumor has it that “sex sells”, ya know.

About Canucks and Beyond

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
