The Pacers have tried to get this "Passion, Pride, Pacers" campaign to kick for a couple of seasons now. Problem is, there hasn't been much to be passionate about, nor have we had players who show a great deal of passion for the game. Last season we picked up Tyler Hansbrough in the draft. Anyone who doesn't live under a rock knows that Psycho T is about as passionate of a basketball player as you're going to see. More recently, we picked up Darren Collison in the trade with New Orleans. Anyone notice something similar in all of these pictures?

I feel like we're finally building back that passion/pride thing here, and I couldn't be much more excited about it.

Yes. And for those who post to the TWSS thread -- "He likes to open his mouth widely when he gets excited."

Recite the Passion, Ignore the Pride...No...that was last year.

Ignite the Passion, Restore the Pride!!!

Hopefully that is this year, finally.

I just wish they would ditch the "Passion" and "Pride" stuff. Come up with something new.

More than likely if they came up with something new....it would be even worse.

Seems as though they're still focusing on this campaign as evidenced by some tweets from George and Rolle.
