Tampa Bay Rays Announce iPad Giveaway Night

May 25, 2010


















Tampa, FL - In an effort to boost their embarrassingly poor attendance, the best club in the majors has announced that this Friday will be iPad Night, when the first 10,000 fans will receive Apple's latest gizmo, absolutely free.
 
"We think we can pull in at least 12,000 fans for this promotion," said Tampa Bay Rays' owner Stuart Sternberg, who added that Tropicana Field's concession stands would get beefed up inventories of hot dogs, beer and peanuts in anticipation of the rush. 

Fans not lucky enough to get an iPad for the game against the White Sox will be awarded 5,000 Frequent Flyer miles from United Airlines and two banana-flavored Dippin' Dots, a Trop fan favorite.
 
Other Ray's promotions in the works are Samsung Flat Screen TV Night, Home Makeover Night, Tesla Roadster Day, Carnival Cruise Sunday, Amazon Kindle Weekend, and, for Father's Day, Viagra Night.

Dippin' Dots ... nothing to do with the Ganges, right?

Yo
They should have had an Avianca promotion.  Then you could have had the banana flavored Dippin' Dots on your way to a Banana Republic!
