Best. Baseball Game Promotion. Ever.
FuneralVictoriaUpperWardsm.jpgMinor league baseball teams often do whatever they can to put cans in the seats. There is rich tradition of odd promotions and giveaways. After Ted Williams' body was was cryogenically frozen, the Bisbee-Douglas Copper Kings gave popsicles to the first 500 fans. The Vero Beach Devil Rays invited fans to show up for a game clean-shaven and get their photos taken. A week later the same fans returned and whoever grew had the best stache was the winner.

Even the big boys get into the act. Last year the Milwaukee (Which is Algonquin for "the good land") Brewers distributed free tickets to men who allowed themselves to have a rectal exam. Great day for a ball game, let's play two!

This week the Grand Prairie AirHogs in Texas brought something truly special to the table. They gave away a free funeral. Brilliant. 60-year-old Arlington woman Elaine Fulps was the uh, lucky winner.

All eleven people in the crowd went wild.

Video of the event can be seen here.

This is a very Texan thing to do. After living there a few years ago and I can really see the Lone Star state of mind in this. Now if it had been football in Texas they would not have to pull such high jinks. Some rich biddy would have died and left it all to the local team. (EX: Baylor University)

I know someone who works at a small ball field by me and everyone who works there is fucking someone, the sexual tension and the medical insurance to pay for the Valtrex is frightening.
