Sunday Oregonian Ad

Post by PilotFan66 on Mon Sep 26, 2011 6:51 pm

This ad was in Sunday's The Oregonian:

UNIVERSITY OF PORTLAND BASKETBALL

"Where billionaires never bicker with millionaires over gate receipts.
Where the only work stoppage is during a timeout.
Where the defensive end is a focal point, not a resting point.
Where no one speaks in the third person.
Where the name on the front of the jersey means more than the one on the back.
Where a traveling call will actually be made.
Where sharing the ball is more important than sharing the revenue.

Watch basketball the way it was meant to be played.
Support players who never stop working. Support the Pilots.

The season - one that will not be delayed, interrupted, or cancelled - starts October 29."

University of Portland."

Thought it was a great ad.

Thanks, Geez. I was wondering if UP would put up an ad that poked fun at the NBA predicament. Hopefully the lockout translates into more people at Pilot games.

UP: where no one on the team or staff speaks in the third person?

A nice respite from Labron . . .

And a rare description of basketball players, but these are the times.

Irony and sarcasm have a place on the Bluff where the team apparently toils away . . . with virtue and let's hope, many wins.

I'm pretty sure the Pilots aren't on David's radar...

And I'll guarantee he doesn't read Oregonian ads in print.

Was it the money bags that were photoshopped in there, or the Wall Street Journal signs in the background? Confusing...
