    Rockford, where team branding and taste go to die... apparently.

    It's called publicity.

    That said, I like last year's better, but dos (pun intended) are pretty sweet.

    Rockford fans are enthusiastic, based upon the ones I have met in Milwaukee. I have never made the 93 mile trip to visit there.

    Why couldn't have they scheduled the game versus San Antonio??

    It's an inside joke with Wolves fans: we always get commercial bumpers of a mariachi band on the Riverwalk when we're in SA.

    It's a bit racially insensitive, but not worthy of protests IMO. It's not really that different than the plethora of NBA teams doing the same thing, except they are a minor league team and feel the need to go a bit over the top with a whole new look for the game.

    You should go sometime. I've enjoyed going there in both their UHL and AHL days.
