Blagojevich Night marketing ploy coming to a minor league hockey arena near you

blagojevich_prison_hockey.jpgLas Vegas remains without a major professional sports team, but it certainly has some quality minor league clubs with some savvy marketing folks populating their front office.

In a move that is likely prompting the Chicago Wolves front office to ask themselves why they didn't think of it first, the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL are going to host Blagojevich Night Jan. 30 against the Victoria Salmon Kings.

"The team will wear vintage prison uniforms, the kind with the stripes.

"Their jerseys will feature prison numbers, and a seat between the two benches will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

After the game, those prison uniforms will be signed and auctioned for charity."
