It was just yesterday that I wrote “Valentine’s Day can wait.” But that was yesterday, when men were men, women were beautiful, and blogging material was plentiful.
But today? Today I got nothin’. Therefore, it’s time for my first installment of Ben’s Biz Blog Valentine’s Day coverage. Thus far, I am aware of 10 teams that are offering mascot delivery services on Valentine’s Day. But, as we know, not all mascots are created equal.
What follows are snapshots of the costumed characters that will be personally delivering Valentine’s Day gifts. And for you, the reader, I have a simple question: Which of these mascots do you think is the most romantic, the one most likely to jump-start a truly memorable Valentine’s Day? Please let me know via email, Twitter, Facebook, or, of course, the perpetually neglected comments section. I’ll compile the results and post it on the blog come Monday. Here are the candidates:
Reading Phillies — Screwball or Crazy Hot Dog Vendor
So which mascot is the most romantic? Let me know.
While perusing through press releases (as I am wont to do), I came across a missive issued by the Gwinnett Braves. This fledgling International League franchise was touting the fun to be had during its current Opening Week homestand.
Amidst a litany of fairly standard promotions that were due to take place, this press release included the following mouth-watering paragraph:
Fans can start the week off
right with the “Knucksie,” a pulled pork open-faced sandwich on a slice
of cornbread, topped with cole slaw and barbecue sauce and scallions,
that is featured at Niekro’s Sports Bar.
The “Knucksie”, named after famed knuckleballer Phil Neikro, sounded like one really good sandwich. Feeling the need for visual evidence of such a fine item, I emailed G-Braves community and public affairs manager Courtney Lawson. She was kind enough to send back the following picture:
All I can say is that I could really go for a Knucksie about now. If you have been lucky enough to try one then please send a report to firstname.lastname@example.org
