There’ll be plenty of wieners on display, but it’ll all be very kid friendly.
The Flying Squirrels will have a Salute to Scandal Night this Thursday, alluding to Anthony Weiner, the current New York City mayoral candidate embroiled in sexting indiscretions.
“Scandal Night is meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek night, and what hotter of a scandal right now than Anthony Weiner,” said Flying Squirrels Vice President and COO Todd “Parney” Parnell. “His scandal just couldn’t have come at a better time in regards to the Flying Squirrels promotional calendar.”
Visitors are encouraged to purchase $1 hot dogs at any concession stand and then tweet pictures of them enjoying those hot dogs to the Flying Squirrels Twitter account, @gosquirrels. The idea has even prompted national attention via ESPN.
Select fans will also be invited onto the field to take part in contests referring to other scandalous celebrities, including: the “Brett Favre Football Throw” and the “Tiger Woods Closest to the Pin Challenge.”
The Flying Squirrels host the Portland Sea Dogs on Thursday, August 1st. Gates open at 6:00 PM with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05 PM. Tickets can be purchased on their website.
