According to the Checkers' release, "The jerseys, which feature Charlotte Hornets colors and primary logo on the crest along with a modified Checkers logo on the shoulders, will be available for auction immediately following the game to benefit the Checkers Charitable Foundation and the Charlotte Hornets Foundation." So not only are the Checkers helping the Hornets promote the Hornets' brand over their own, they're also raising money for the Hornets' charity. Something doesn't seem right about this.
How about some more salt to the wound, you say? Sure, we can do that. "Other Hornets Night merchandise, including hats, t-shirts, pucks and more, will be available for sale beginning with the Checkers’ Black Friday sale at their EpiCentre office and continuing throughout the game." Oh, and don't forget that "Hugo, the Hornets’ mascot, and the Honey Bees dance team" will also be at the game as well. Is this a hockey game or a basketball game? Everything points to a basketball game right now.
But if they do, the least they could do is provide a themed jersey to the anthem singer on a theme night. She is part of the team on game night. You're better than this charade, Checkers.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
