The New Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Stalling on Detroit’s Hockey Arena Ice Is a Perfect Metaphor:

If Detroiters know anything, they know about cars, hockey and disappointment. Their experience in all three came in handy yesterday when a brand-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss stalled on the ice at the Little Caesars Arena, the new home of the Detroit Red Wings.

The Silverado was supposed to make a few laps of the ice during the second intermission before returning to dry land, but unfortunately it “ground to a halt” near center ice, breaking down just as crews were readying the Zambonis, as GM Authority dutifully reports. Eventually Chevy’s people were able to get the truck running and sheepishly limped it off of the ice before the third period start. Luckily, the Wings were working last night and beat the St. Louis Blues 4 to 3.

Ooph. That’s one ugly truck, which has ho bearing really. But tell me “Trail Boss” isn’t some kind of branding or label or anything but the title of the driver.
