Oh man all that tranny fluid spilling onto the ice. I remember when I got to ride the Zamboni at the Flames game, and the second one dropped all it's fluid like that and I got to ride for the entire intermission as we had to clean up all the fluid before it absolutely ruined the ice surface (will melt it almost immediately). I spent that 20-25 minutes hammin it up right proper for the crowd. 19000+ laughing and cheering for me. What a great evening hahaha.

Considering what happened, if I was Olympia, I’d be totally cool with people referring to this one as a Zamboni.

I'm sure it was the Zamboni company that complained.

Scummy response they should have said, we stand with our ice resurfacing tractor brothers and sisters in this difficult time.

Being a synonymous brand name is great until one of the imitators gets bad press.

That was such a garbage response from Zamboni holy crap.

How about just a simple we are very glad to hear there were no injuries in the scary incident that happened in Rochester to their ice resurfacing machine.

We understand our brand has become synonymous with ice resurfacing machines, and both Olympia and Zamboni make quality products. This was an unfortunate and scary accident and we offer our help to Olympia ice machine company in any way we can.

I’m not even a lawyer or in marketing.

Even now it is... people are still using the word Zamboni 10x as much as Olympia, even if it's just to say this wasn't a Zamboni. Or, "quit whining, Zamboni lawyers". Or "Zambitches".

They're still winning every time.
