For baseball, YX flies charters for my Brewers and the Kansas City Royals, and they are both in last place in their respective leagues - any coincidence?

You will note that the Red Wing's DC-9 also bears the logo of the Detroit Tigers. Both teams are owned by Little Ceaser's pizza magnate Mike Illitch. Boy, talk about a sports ying and yang, those two teams!
Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!

Last year the Green Bay Packers flew on chartered NW planes. They must need some pretty powerful engines to get Big Gilbert Brown and the rest of those monsters off the ground!

The Bucks fly on YX charters. Hmm, they had a lousy year too. Maybe too many chocolate-chip cookies onboard?

Go Pack!  Big thumbs up

The Oakland Raiders used chartered Hawaiian Airlines DC-10's for the last two years. I don't know if they'll be using the -10's again this year or the new 767's.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

I would post a pic of the plane the Chicago Blackhawks fly in but as far as I know the team takes regularly scheduled flights to other cities to play their games.  Sad
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Check out this 757. It looks like it belongs to Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks. Not bad.
