There’s a new Goodyear blimp in town.
Our beloved city is one of few in the country that can see a blimp on the horizon at least once a week during the summer. It even flies over my house during certain Indian’s baseball games. My family enjoys feeling the pulse of its propellers, similar but lighter than a helicopter- as it rumbles over head. The power and girth of the slow moving giant overhead is a sign of, well, home.
Check out the new blimp!

Name the Blimp, then take the Ride!
Hometown Company Goodyear is sponsoring sponsoring a “Name The Blimp” contest running today through April 4th. I am thankful that Goodyear’s CEO Rich Kramer did not take it upon himself and choose the name from a list that marketing put together. Corporate Naming always ends up looking like business people didn’t want to upset the apple cart- Take the new Olive Garden logo for instance- cheesy.
Anyway, back to the contest-
The contest winner will get to enjoy the Goodyear Blimp for a day this upcoming season!
I am entering the contest myself- but I have to figure out a name that showcases Tire Performance, Blimp History, Community Engagement, and Grace. Tough one. I think I’ll have to ask my kids.
