So maybe you all knew this already, but it’s brand new for me. I knew that the scandal, which occurred back in 2005, was given the nickname the Love Boat Scandal as a play on the TV Show called Love Boat. However, I never thought of it as anything more than a casual relationship as the Vikings players were making Love on a Boat.
I never watched the show myself, and am mostly familiar of it because its theme song seems to get stuck in your head even if you’ve only ever heard it once. Then yesterday, I started watching some old TV Shows on TVLand or something similar, and after I Dream of Jeanie and Bewitched (2 of my all time favorites) came the Love Boat. As I reached for the tuner to find something better to watch, something on the screen caught my eye. The font of the credits was strangely familiar. Then it dawned on me: that’s the same font that the Vikings use in a lot of their branding!
It wasn’t until a minute or two later that I connected the dots to the Love Boat scandal and started to wonder if that had anything to do with the media terming the scandal after the TV Show. Do any of you bloggers know – was this intentional, or just a freaky coincidence?
