My understanding is that Ricoh is going to buy the sports facilities in both Missouri and Ohio and put their logo on the front.

That's okay. It can be covered up with a piece of tape.

They already have their logo on the front of a few Toronto venues… so it wouldn't be out of the ordinary, but they are going to be paying for a lot of higher education. 8 home games, 105,000 people, 80$ a ticket.

That's about 67 million in revenues just from the gate and another 25 million in TV revenues. What do you suppose it would cost to get their name on the stadium. 20 million would be chump change for these guys. They'd have to sell Pentax to raise the cash. Pentax is doomed.

Pentax can buy the St. Louis Rams stadium licensing for $1.50 today and paste a RICOH label on the back door.

If Mr. Kroenke (Mrs. Walmart's husband) gets his new stadium Ricoh can trade all their equity for the naming rights and they'll still need to add cash. Forget about the Cardinals, Blues, Royals, Chiefs and Tigers. You can't afford them. I maybe can show you a deal for a High School Volleyball team though.

Volleyball is good...women's or men's?

Forget sports teams, invest in the Winter Olympics!!! Offer up cameras in national colors to the various countries!! Show generosity, get big tax write off and demonstrate weather sealing!! All in one neat package!! Think about it Shawn White banging away with a Pentax would push the x-sports fans towards us!! Sorry moment of serious thought! Won't happen again.

I had at least three good Ricoh SLR's , still have two of them although do not use them any more, just look at them, bring good memories.
I took 1000 photos with K-3 and like it more and more every day.
Good on you Ricoh, long live Pentax!

Yep, still have three Ricoh SLRs on my shelf and all three work as well or better than my Pentax cameras of the same vintage.

Because that'll show 'em you mean business!

(I'm not sure who 'they' are, or what business you mean, but it'll definitely show them!)
