    One of three things happened....

    We invaded Canada and conquered them already, or the NHL has expanded 6 teams in the US or the NY Post sucks.

    This is a good idea. Ovie would be a great spokesman for Pepsi :)

    When posting the entire article doesn't suffice, and Google is unheard of.


    Also, when did we invade Canada? And why wasn't I asked to come along?

    Sweet! I love pepsi...diet, of course (you get used to the flavor within a week), because i am too old to be frivilously throwing calories down my person.

    Pepsi should mock up a picture of Kovalchuk pointing to one of its products as part of their advertising.

    I don't know how this is going to help other then the minimal funds pepsi is providing. I bet you that Pepsi will be just as proactive as coke or whoever was before them.

    Nothing like an ice cold pepsi and unfiltered cigarette between periods to keep the competitive juices flowing.

    They should've sponsored with Dr. Pepper for the sunbelt teams. We love our Dr. Pepper down south. :)

    Well even Wayne changed his tune a few years back. He's now a Pepsi spokesperson. This shocks me greatly due to his staunch Coke stance. In the 1991 Canada Cup after practice in Hamilton (I believe), Copps Coliseum being an exclusive Pepsi building had Pepsi cups for the players to drink water from etc. Wayne being so staunchly Coke, refused to drink out of the Pepsi cups and called the local Coke bottling plant and had them bring out Coke cups for them.

    Its too bad he's a Pepsi man, I always used to like those Coke commercials with him and Walter from the early 90's.

    Just something I noticed while typing this post. Is it just me or do all Canadians seem to be on first name basis with both Wayne and Walter Gretzky? If you mention something about Wayne or Walter to a Canadian hockey fan, everyone knows who you mean.

    ICK!! I friggin' detest Pepsi!! I'm a Diet Coke girl myself, gotta love the Coke. Oh well, this actually changes nothing for my game viewing habits, I'll just continue sneaking in my 20 oz. bottles of Diet Coke....among other beverages.

    Hey- Wayne and his dad don't need last names- EVERYONE knows who they are so no need with the last name imo. Look people most of the time call Lemieux just Mario and Tiger Woods is always just Tiger so it goes with the territory. As a sidenote I thought the photos at the NHL draft showed Wayne at the draft table with a diet Coke- could be wrong but I thought he still digged coke- oh well just so Pepsi did not see it I guess. baha.

    I told Jay Feaster I was going to have to smuggle a bottle of Coke into the games, but I have no idea how to go about it. :( I hate Pepsi!

    Potential good news:

    Fingers crossed Coca-Cola stays in Tampa Bay!
