A big Olde English D

Kudos to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan for supporting the Detroit Tigers in the 2006 World Series! (and for listening to the suggestion made earlier this week).

I just heard on the 5 o’clock news that the Blues plan to display a 12-foot-high light display of the Olde English D on the BCBSM building located in downtown Detroit. The news report, which was on Channel 7, reported that the big D will go on display tonight.

The two sides of the building with windows currently feature a light-display of a pink ribbon (in honor of breast cancer awareness month in October) so I’m not sure if that will be replaced or if the Olde English D will go up on the east- and west-facing sides.

I will find out tonight, though; my camera and I have a date in the area around 9 or 10 this evening.

    Blue Cross always does cool things with lights in the windows. Knowing the Blues, they probably have a person on staff whose sole job is to plan these windows displays.

    I just looked out my window (the north side of the building) and they still have the breast cancer stuff lights on, I think.

    I love the pink ribbon idea and if my memory serves me right, I think they may have done a red ribbon in the past (for heart disease awareness, I think). And there was the cool XL for the Super Bowl, too. I think it’s a neat thing to do and it makes a big impact.

    I want that job. I wonder if they need to get permission from the city to display.
