Retail Score

IMG_4650 Winning the Stanley Cup is one thing to prove you’ve made it. However the true (haha) measure of success for a sports team is their presence in the retail marketplace. The Carolina Hurricanes have come a long way since the green acres of empty seats 90 miles west of here. The latest proof? This holiday season Samsung features a hockey player wearing the jersey of Carolina Hurricanes captain Eric Staal on the box for 27” TV. The jersey, of course, doesn’t carry the Hurricanes’ primary logo and features photoshopped font and name, but that’s only to avoid legal processes.
