This (Non) Sporting Life: Rejected Ballpark Promotions
Hi there! Today I'm posting an installment of This (Non) Sporting Life, a blog post about sports written by a guy who doesn't know much about sports.
Today's topic: baseball.
That great epitome of American wit and wisdom, Homer Simpson, once opined on the timeless magic of America's past time.
Well, if you're looking for a little excitement in a baseball game, nothing spikes up things that a good ol' fashioned brawl. Like the one started when Texas Rangers second baseman
Rougned Odor delivered a punch to Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista’s jaw.
Ouch! That's gotta hurt!
Also: Rougned Odor? This is a real person's real name? Really?
Another way to drum up some excitement in baseball is to come up with a really good ball park promotion. Now it's important to NOT come up with a ball park promotion that sucks. Much like the following 10 ideas posted on Twitter (where I can be found here: Dave-El
@dave_el1938) under the hashtag #RejectedBallparkPromotions.
And here we go!
And that is all the time I have for that. The family and I have not escaped the Fortress of Ineptitude to go see a Greensboro Grasshopper game this year. I hope we get to see at least one game this summer.
There's an ALL NEW post tomorrow which is Sunday so it's a Doctor Who post, Episode 4 of my fan fiction script.
Until next time, remember to be good to one another.
