Goodyear will be at the Orange, Fiesta, and Rose; Blockbuster will be at the Outback; and the Met Life Snoopy Airship will be at the Copper. According to ABC Sports Producer Jim Ressler, whether or not a game has a blimp depends on availability of ad time. In many cases it is a last second decision. Mickey Wittman, Manager of Airship Programs at Goodyear, says high-profile events such as the Rose and Super Bowl, have agreements done up to a year in advance. Goodyear will be in Phoenix in January for Super Bowl XXX (THE DAILY).
