In Which the Minor Leagues' Premier Dancing Grounds Crew Asserts Itself
Ever since I began this blog back in the dog days of October, it has been my goal to create fair, accurate, and unbiased content. Sometimes, due to fatigue, ignorance, or misplaced animus, I fall short of this noble goal.
Fortunately, I can always count on my vast and loyal readership to set me straight during those trying times in which there is only one set of footprints in the sand. Now is one such time.
So, without further ado, I humbly turn over the rest of this post to Scott Carter, Vice President of Marketing for the Fresno Grizzlies. Mr. Carter has a bone to pick with a recent assertion made in this fine blog. Take it away, Scott:
First and foremost, let me say that the entire Grizzlies organization enjoys your blog on a regular basis, especially now that it is organized into easily digestible categories.
However, we feel that you have infringed on one of our greatest entertainment hallmarks this week in your blog covering the Super Bowl bet between Brooklyn and Lowell. On February 4th, you wrote:
"Well, we all know what happened. Now, Bawmann can look forward to visiting Brooklyn in order to
rake the field, dance around the basepaths, and perhaps serve as an honorary member of the ‘Drag Kings.’"
Fans across California’s Central Valley, and even some internet admirers, know that there is only one true "Drag Kings" act. That moniker belongs to a group of four talented gentlemen from the
Grizzlies, who routinely bring down the house with their inventive moves and spot-on choreography. While we realize that many teams have a great dancing field drag act, the Drag Kings are distinct to the Fresno Grizzlies. With their vast repertoire of performances and a fan base that grows by the day, the true Drag Kings were given an honorable mention by Gameops.com for their excellence as an entertainment act in 2007. They are set to take Minor League Baseball by storm this year, so stay tuned. In the meantime, feel free to visit www.youtube.com/fresnogrizzlies to check out the original Drag Kings in action.
Best of luck during the 2008 season, and thank you for letting us clear the air.
Vice President of Marketing, Fresno Grizzlies
So there you have it, folks. From now on, I will only use the term "Drag Kings" to refer to the Grizzlies’ dancing grounds crew revue. I suggest you do the same, lest you feel the wrath of the club’s formidable PR department. Thanks for getting in touch, Scott.
In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity to state that Ben’s Biz Blog loves to receive complaints. Please contact me if you have any issues with this fine blog, and I will do my best to rectify the situation.
