    We get discounts on tv and merch but not tickets? Most stadiums are only a quarter full besides the winning teams.

    2017 is MLB, I wonder what next year's fad for OD will be? I bet this freight don't even pay a damn. We're just doing it for putting our name out there.

    Bingo!!!! It's advertising Billy. Just think how proud you'll be when you pull a pup all decked out with a baseball team on the side.

    The trailers with billboards don't even represent any teams. Just shows images of guys sliding to home plate.

    I guess Mastio awards wasn't a good selling point so we'll haul MLB team stuff for free.

    It's definitely a huge expense. They even mentioned it on the first quarter investors number call, saying to expect a big charge for the MLB advertising in the 2nd quarter numbers. Maybe the Congdon's are big baseball buffs, whatever, it's something different.

    Personally I haven't seen any yet. Another driver said there was a New York Mets trailer in PDX the other day. I did see another trailer last week that had the MLB emblem under the OD sign on the trailer door.

    MLB was looking to rape people on a 40 dollar hat to honor Memorial Day last weekend and took a good backlashing from it. OD needs to drop their sponsorship. Aka hauling their stuff for free

    Why???? You couldn't afford it. I bought 2. You need to research the facts before you flap your lips. Like I said before you must be miserable. Smile Billy you are working.

    You didn't buy anything, quit lying. No one wanted to buy these since they were trying to profit on the Memorial Day holiday.

    Thought y'all might have a team design on the side of the trailer or something. More than just the MLB logo

    Only a few select pups have team names on the back and we also have long boxes with picture graphics of a unknown team guy sliding to home plate.

    Maybe we could make another cute commercial with all of us dressed up as MLB players and play it on CNN saying how much we'll keep your promise.
    What is funny, in previous commercials the line drivers were the only ones they had to hire actors for.

    That's because anyone can play a city driver! Hell you've been doing it for years.

    The actors for the line drivers were because we didn't want to scare off potential customers with our out of shape zombie drivers.

    Another driver and I were discussing that very thing today. Came to the conclusion that Billy might be a glorified dock worker.
