It kind of started as a semi joke that no one really thought would happen when I mentioned it in a post I wrote about the importation of Mike Commodore to Detroit.
For those asking, I have not decided what # I am wearing yet…but I am considering #64. Need to talk to equip manager..decide at camp
Even Greg Wyshynski over at Puck Daddy has put together a case for why Commodore must wear No. 64 and has put money on the board. Whshynski has put up $64 to the charity of Mike Commodore’s choice if he opts for the number in Detroit – and so have many of the Puck Daddy Readers.
Not only is Commodore now thinking of pleasing the masses and adopting number 64 to go on the back of his Winged Wheel but the actual computer is coming back. Commodore has released a new Commodore 64 and stand behind the hard drive to get Mike Commodore to wear number 64:
Hopefully the Red Wings organization gives Commodore the go ahead to switch his number. These jerseys and jersey shirts are going to fly off of the e-shelf. I myself would purchase a Winged Wheel Commodore 64 and I am not alone I have seen rival Chicago Blackhawks fans announce they would buy it as well. Sales of Commodore 64 gear would surely make it rain…
UPDATE 9:47 a.m. : Wyshynski has updated on Puck Daddy that over 50 people have pledged to the Commodore 64 cause.
