Yup, 21 players with today as their birthdate and me, nothing to show. Made it to the middle of the month though so I'm doing pretty good.
I'm just going to throw out some random things on this cold Sunday.
“Enforcers for the Forces”
Starting yesterday, a group of 18 former NHL fighters who call themselves “Enforcers for the Forces” will begin raffling 150 signed and framed photo montages.
The Leafs-Rangers game Saturday at the Air Canada Centre is Canadian Forces appreciation night. This will be promoted during the game, and is also scheduled to be highlighted during the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast.
The enforcers group includes ex-Leaf scrapper Wendel Clark, former Edmonton Oiler Dave Semenko and Joey Kocur. One of the posters will be raffled each week. The group hopes to generate between $10,000 and $50,000 a week.
The money will be donated to the Military Families Fund, founded in 2007 by Canadian general Rick Hillier, and the Soldier On program, which was created in 2010 to support disabled vets.
The raffle’s website is
So, for this pizza promotion, the specials include The Hat-Trick, The Breakaway and The Overtime. I wonder what Schenner's favourite is. Now, when the grand prize winner has his order personally delivered by Luke, and he spends time with the winner and friends, does he stay and eat your pizza too. Or does he bring his own. Just wondering.
Now, for a look back at advertising from days of yore.
Campbell's Chunky Soup
So this will tie the previous two from above together.
Enforcer + Toronto Maple Leaf=Wendel Clark.
This might have been his first ad for Chunky Soup as I remember a few other TV commercials as well. Expiry date on coupon form is 1991. I never sent away for any of this merchandise but did eat plenty of soup. Hard to believe this is over twenty years old.
