Wherein DBJ shills for Skyline Chili

You all know that I'm not the corporate mouthpiece (especially when the corporations want me to promote their activities with no sponsorship of this site), but this one was creative.

I'll gladly give points to Skyline Chili - or at least to their ad firm.  At least they take a couple of minutes to read the blog before shipping me a press release.  (Their chili-covered nachos at the arena ain't bad, either.)

Good morning @DarkBlueJacket:

I had a press release to send, but will rather put this in a (hacked) haiku, since I have seen you favor that form on twitter.

On Wednesday, Oct. 30, Wednesday, Nov. 13, and Tuesday Nov. 19, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., the Columbus Blue Jackets mascot, Stinger, will visit several Skyline Chili locations in Columbus, Ohio. As a proud partner of the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Bethel Rd., Powell Rd. and Dublin Skyline Chili restaurants will have Stinger visit to pump up hockey fans and pose for photos, while customers enjoy Skyline Chili’s signature Coneys and Ways.


  1. Now if only you could use this power to get Skyline to sponsor the three-goal chili.

  2. Skyline is frigging delicious. Advertising worked. I'll be attending with the 8 year old for some photos and chilitos.

  3. PS: In case the PR guy comes back, I vote that they should begin serving Skyline Nachos at the restaurants. Excellent vehicle for getting that ichor into one's piehole.
