A-Rod and Speed Stick

Postby Steve-o » Thu Jun 30, 2005 10:30 pm

Maybe this is old news, but I was reading this SI article about highest paid atheletes and thought it was funny.

11. Alex Rodriguez
Total Income:
$26 million

His move to the Yankees (and third base) is starting to pay off in endorsement income: He's up to $6 million a year. But look closely at his Speed Stick ad on TV -- the stadium lights spell out "E5." Is someone at Mennen a Red Sox fan?

This was in SI this week. More General Talk if you ask me since it doesn't really relate to baseball ;-) Oh well

An error made by the third baseman.

I'd have to see the commercial live, but is it possible that the picture of the speed stick is simply covering up the "YANKE" and you're only seeing the last "ES" in YANKEES? I can't tell.
