Burke responds to Lowe's comments...kind of

From Dan Wood of the Orange County Register:

More importantly, we believe our fan base is as supportive and as rabid and as loyal as any fan base in pro sports, not just in the National Hockey League. We’ve played to 77 (consecutive home) sellouts, which I believe is the third-best streak in the NHL. All of our suites are sold. Club seats are at record levels. No one can question the commitment and support and loyalty of the Anaheim Ducks fan base. We believe they’re the best fans in professional sports.

Read the entire story here.

Obviously the NHL's directive has limited the entertainment value of Burke's comments.

It comes as no surprise that Burke has defended his market to the press. One of his strengths as a GM has been his ability to increase his team's prominence in its particular market.

Ballhype: hype it up!

Home improvement… it is neither pleasant nor fun. First you have to find a store, then look up through the inventory whatever you need, it may turn out that the things you need are not there. So you have to go to the other store. I have been looking for a great source of home improvement items. And I found it Lowes. I checked www.pissedconsumer.com for customer reviews and found out it was the right choice.

Hello. I like your blog. Personally I hate the process of home improvement. The thing is that home improvement companies tend to provide poor services. But on this great site www.pissedconsumer.com I found this company - Lowes. And I liked it. The wide selection of cabinets, cabinet hardware, countertops and paint offered by Lowes cannot be easily compared to any other company.
