Well the only thing that has stayed with us is how lame that tagline is. First, if you say it after the team's name, it sounds strange. Shouldn't it be "They Stay With You"?

In fairness, the Predators' new TV ad campaign has been pretty entertaining. Check out a "making of" video here. Still, we think they could have done better with the tagline.

Red Wings, Schmed Wings It Keeps You Running Like Curling, With Fewer Teeth NASCAR on Ice Tootoo Bad More Teeth Than Cheatham County Not the Sexual Kind We Do It Without Boots Nashville: The Bashkortostan of the South Good Sections Still Available That's our best so far.
