Donnie Webb notes on his blog today that former SU Quarterback Perry Patterson was waived by the Columbus Destroyers. While Perry had an up and down career at Syracuse, T3I wish him well in his future endeavors. The interesting part of the story is that when clicking on the official announcement from the team, we learn that it's the Columbus Destroyers, presented by Germain.
Sponsorship is obviously a vital part of sports, but the whole "presented by" gimmick is awful. It's a pet peeve and just really dumb, unless someone wants to sponsor The Three Idiots, then it's perfectly fine. Got a business that needs exposure to hundreds (on a good day) of readers? T3I might be for you. Think of the possibilities.....The Three Idiots, presented by Chico's Bail Bonds. The Three Idiots, presented by Nodoro......I could go on and on......potential sponsors should hurry up and contact us, we are sure there will be a bidding war.
