Might there one day be a "Pentax Arena"? ;)

I didn't realise that Coventry City Football Club's stadium was called the "Ricoh Arena".

Seems they have the naming rights for some time.

Yes, a stadium housing the Pentax Punters. Right.

Well Ricoh is very active in sports, so who knows. Maybe there will be a Pentax Arena, or a Ricoh DSLR K-3.

Perhaps Pentax will sponsor at least a AAA Baseball Stadium. The Pentax Shutters. I can see it now.

And don't forget the precision-drill dog team, the Pentax K9's.

Sports can be very effective advertising. Watch a baseball game anywhere and Nikon and Canon have signs everywhere. That's why the brands are so well recognized, even by non photographers.

I'm a huge Coventry City supporter and I was glad when I saw the Ricoh connection with Pentax. Unfortunately Coventry are having a bad start to the season and are not only looking at relegation but are battling bankruptcy as well - hope Pentax can bring them some luck.

The same people that clean up after all the squirrels in the stand drinking bear and eating peanuts.

Ricoh Coliseum, Toronto

Don't forget the Ricoh Coliseum in downtown Toronto, home of the Ontario Hockey League team the Toronto Marlboroughs. Maybe the Coliseum could be the site of some Pentax marketing. It's right next to a major expressway carrying traffic into the city centre.
