from the News & Observer, The Carolina Hurricanes cemented their celebrity in the hockey world by winning the Stanley Cup, but winning the state's first major-league title has generated just a trickle of celebrity endorsement opportunities.
Prominent players such as defenseman Mike Commodore, who inspired Carolina fans to mimic his appearance by wearing bushy red wigs and white bathrobes to playoff games, are still waiting by the phone.
"There's absolutely nothing," Commodore said last week. "I told my agent that I'm interested if there's something going on, but there's been nothing to come to me. ... I'm in for just about anything."...
"I started my career in Toronto, where every guy on the team had a car that they were given by a dealership, a free cell phone and all the other stuff," (Kevyn) Adams said. "That's just the way the culture is there, and every place is different."
