While I admit that these are all amusing ads and creative ways of trying to capture some of the Valentine’s Day market, I look at the ads and I see a point that is sorely missed and that is using the Valentine’s Day campaign as an extension of what they are already doing as a team to push their tickets.

By that I mean that there seems to be no consistency to the story that the team is trying to sell. In this instance, I think the teams would do a bit better to find a consistent message that they want to deliver for the season and build all of their messages around their plan.

Wow, that Houston Astros creative is kind of rough on the eyes.

I think the Coyotes and the Bucks are the top two – love the extension of the “Fear the Deer” t-shirts with the “holiday” colors!

Please realize that several of these were grabbed screenshots from team websites, so the graphic quality (esp. text) is not coming through as well as it should.
