AVALANCHE PLAYERS STAR IN NEW SPOTS FOR FOX SPORTS NET
Patrick Roy, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Claude Lemieux
and Rene Corbet recently filmed promo ads for Fox Sports Net
which will run at the end of the month on Fox Sports Rocky
Mountain, according to Penny Parker of the DENVER POST.
"Portions" of the spots will be used for a national campaign
produced by Spike Lee. In one spot, entitled "Ginsu," an
equipment manager asks Roy if his skates are sharp enough.
Roy then slices up some vegetables and tries unsuccessfully
to sever a nail with the skate, before handing it back and
saying, "No. Keep going" (DENVER POST, 9/18).
