New Orleans Saints and Hornets Cross-Pollination Has Begun!

What happens when you cross a Hive and a Superdome? Multiple championships over multiple seasons and leagues, I hope! Anthony Davis could be the NBA's next Drew Brees, right? Wait, what?

Tom Benson's purchase of the New Orleans Hornets last month has many media types (myself included) speculating on how the management of both teams will shake out under the Benson umbrella.

Thursday, the first actual, concrete example (to my knowledge) of the intermingling of the two groups came to light, as the Saints offered their season ticket holders the opportunity to choose Hornets seats for the season before the rest of the general public.

What a sweet deal for Tommy Boy. Now he can tap into both significantly-sized fanbases with direct appeals to increase ticket sales - boo-yaaaaah!!

I feel reasonably confident in asserting that many more of these crossovers are lurking on the horizon.

I wonder if Dave will have interest in whatever baby-friendly HiveSeats (and will baby headphones come free with them?), or if any other CSCer season ticketholders will take advantage of this super special once in a lifetime every year limited-time-only offer...

What other interesting (i.e. fun, ridiculous, hilariously corny, etc.) crossover promotions can you see happening in the future between these two teams?
