OPTIONS ACTION: In Chicago, Bruce Blythe notes the city’s “major exchange companies, CME Group and the Chicago Board Options Exchange, advertise rink side” at Blackhawks games in United Center. The CBOE-Blackhawks pairing “began in 2008, when the exchange became a ‘presenting sponsor’ with the team.” The agreement “includes a trading component, with two ‘CBOE seats’ on the glass at center-ice auctioned online to the highest bidder before each game” (CHICAGOGRID.com, 6/12).
HOT CORNER, HOT PIZZA: In St. Louis, Joe Holleman notes Cardinals 3B David Freese “has inked a three-year deal as the main spokesman” for local chain Imo’s Pizza. An Imo’s spokesperson said that Freese will appear in TV, radio, print and digital ads, which “should debut in a month.” Imo's also “will donate $10,000 to Variety, the Children’s Charity of St. Louis, in conjunction with Freese” (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 6/12).
ON THE CATWALK: GQ's Oliver Franklin reports Nike “has revealed the kit" that Roger Federer will be wearing during Wimbledon and the outfit includes a “monogrammed Nike Premier RF crew.” What is not in the ensemble is “Fed's signature trim in favour of a classic white-and-orange colourway.” But Franklin added he would not "be surprised if the gold makes a comeback" if Federer win an eighth Wimbledon title (GQ-MAGAZINE.co.uk, 6/13).
