I really love the Derek Rose commercial. It makes me sad that he's struggled so much to stay healthy. I know it's NBA related but the commercial is on the NCAA streaming app so...

My boss don't care. Also I sell insurance over the phone. I'll even talk to people about it, they like basketball too.

Until I tell them I'm rooting AGAINST their team:twisted:

Go Northeastern! I spent a few years at you almost exclusively because the mascot is adorable.


Is that Shaq and Laettner in a commercial? Isn't that two of the most disliked folks in basketball? Is that good branding?

Shaq is one of the most beloved figures in sports history. Most people aren't goons.

It's interesting how these companies are branding injured stars don't you think? Totally a different, ethos driven, human angle.

Being a salesperson that is all about "oh why yes, I too love Duke!" is the height of snake oil.

Be honest. Be human. And go Cyclones.


I sell to the East Coast/South :argh: so most people have their own teams picked out, and not a lot are against the Cyclones.

Fair enough. I just increase their premium if they say they are fans of Duke, Notre Dame, or any team the Cyclones are playing/Will play. ( i don't really do this, pls don't sue me)

Ahh you got a point. I guess the only conversations I've had about Shaq with non-basketball fans they're talking about a childhood memory of something fun and I wind up sounding like a mean ol' curmudgeon.


Shaq's a petulant and vindictive rear end in a top hat tho'.

The commercials are in-stream instead of being served from a third party so there's probably not much to be done.

Use a multimedia keyboard's mute button? :shrug:
