If there was a Winnipeg Jets drinking game, where you had to slam back a shot every time you saw a Jets logo in town, the Winnipeg economy would screech to an immediate halt.
Think about it. Have you experienced a single day since last fall where you haven’t seen something, anything, with a Jets logo on it?
Nobody seems to know for sure how many items have been branded with our version of the Nike Swoosh, but most estimates are in the thousands.
There’s the basic hats, T-shirts and flags but take a walk through any of the major sports merchandise retailers in town and you’ll see more than a few surprises. How about slippers, shot glasses, piggy banks, night lights, doughnuts and tattoo sleeves?
Oh yeah, the logo can even be found on jerseys.
