Should the Skyline Chili Crosstown Shootout be Sponsored by P&G's Puffs?
Being from Cincinnati, I can assure you there is no greater college basketball rivalry than the Xavier Musketeers and UC (University of Cincinnati) Bearcats. These two teams play each other in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Shootout every year. UC beat Xavier 66-46 this year.
I have some sympathy for Xavier fans, so I am offering a Puffs tissue so they can wipe their tears away from the loss.
On another note, I found an interesting correlation between blog postings about Xavier and tissue paper (see graph below). Could this indicate an opportunity for Cincinnati's own Proctor and Gamble (P&G) to sponsor the event in the future? I think the "Puffs Tissue Crosstown Shootout" has a nice ring to it. Fans rooting for the losing team could get free tissue paper after the game.
Don't worry Xavier fans. I say these things jokingly. Or am I?
Do you have any thoughts on the graph above? Feel free to comment.
