I don't mind it. Heck, all the youth hockey teams in Michigan play in the Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League (http://lcahl.pointstreaksites.com/view/LCAHL) and the premier AAA travel association in the country is Little Caesars (http://www.littlecaesarshockey.com/). Synergy!
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

I was a little surprised they didn't look far and wide (or maybe they did and no one was biting) for a sponsor before deciding to have one member of the family write an annual check to another.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

I'm surprised at the hand-wringing I see on the topic. Like, people thought there weren't going to be corporate naming rights? Howe Arena or New Olympia or whatever, fat chance in this era. Little Caesar's arena seemed like an easy guess. Nobody cared about Ford Field, I guess because the Ford family owns the team, or Ford is such an ingrained part of our community's history.

I'm more disappointed about the changes to the roof of the arena. The glowing red winged wheel looked cool, the big white roof with cartoon Caesar on it, less so.

Andy might as well change my tagline. I used to love hockey. I didn't even get that excited when the Blues eliminated the Black Hawks (but I did over the quietness of my Facebook feed).

San Jose and PIttsburg in the Finals? Meh. Crosby still sucks and Thornton will probably retire immediately following if they win just to thumb his nose at all of his naysayers.

The only decent people covering it for NBC are Eddie O and Mike Emrick. That douche Regis McGuire just needs to die. I miss the ESPN days of Clement and Throne.
