And I have no problem with Dick Nozzle logos on Daniel Negreanu’s jersey.
Laurel native Greg Merson won the World Series of Poker Main Event recently and did so wearing an Orioles jersey modified with patches advertising his sponsors.
This caused exactly no consternation on the part of the Orioles, which could come as a surprise for a team playing in an image-conscious league like Major League Baseball. It has yet to relent on its life-time ban of hits leader Pete Rose (who bet on his own team, of course).
But a little card game worth nearly $9 million, in which one guy happens to wear a baseball jersey (he paid for) with some logos for Best Bet Jacksonville, Ivey Poker and Draft Kings? Not a problem.
“Greg wearing an Orioles jersey was something we got a kick out of seeing, and we congratulate him on his win,” wrote Greg Bader, recently promoted to vice president of communication and marketing. “I know many of us with the ballclub enjoyed seeing the Orioles colors displayed during the tournament. At no time were any concerns expressed about the advertisements on his jersey.”
