Tiny Bobbles

Tiny [Bobbles]

In the wine
Make me happy
Make me feel fine

Tiny [Bobbles]

Make me warm all over
With a feeling that I’m gonna
Love you ’til the end of time

So here’s to the golden moon
And here’s to the silver sea
And mostly here’s a toast
To you and me

-Don Ho

 

Yeah, I’m gonna go there again.  And, here’s the thing:  I like the giveaways.  Yup.  I said it.  It’s unpopular with the kool kids and the baseball purists, but I love the swag.  Give me more stuff, man, I’ll take it!  (no, I won’t fight anybody over it and I won’t complain, but…) I’m on my second bottle of Rhone tonight and I’m willing to admit to about anything.  I love that they give the club level patrons guaranteed giveaways.  I drive over 55 sometimes.  Golly, somebody stop me…

    I’m betting on April 4th there will be 3,000 fans getting good use out of the Opening Night giveaway item. The scoreboard clock sounds like an interesting item too.

    I also thought how cool it would be to get some former Phillies from the ’93 and ’83 NL championship teams to come to Coca-Cola Park for the 20th and 30th anniversary of their titles. How cool would it be to bring in Bobby Thigpen from the ’93 team for a “Thigpen in the Pigpen” promo. But alas, Bobby Thigpen will probably be preoccupied as he is the new bullpen coach with the White Sox. Anyway, Lenny Dykstra could be available for an appearance by August.
    And, I thought this was interesting:
    Jimmy Rollins (Phillies), Shane Victorino (Phillies & Ironpigs Rehab Assignment), J.P. Arencibia (allstar game), Ryan Vogelsong (Ironpigs), Kris Medlen (Gwinnett), Craig Kimbrel (Gwinnett), Glen Perkins (Rochester). That’s at least 7 players on Team USA in the 2013 World Baseball Classic who have played in Coca-Cola Park either for or against the Ironpigs.

    • Genius! Your promo ideas are super.

      And speaking of WBC 2013, there are future/current/past ‘Pigs playing on international rosters, too. Aumont and Gillies come to mind for Canada and Kennelly for Australia off the top of my head. I’m sure there are others, too, who’ve played or will play, at CCP.

      I like the idea of the WBC; I just fear that injuries could happen and impact my teams. Maybe it’s because Gillies and Rollins are involved, I dunno.

    I believe Chris Snelling is also on that Australian team and I think I heard Rodrigo Lopez is on Team Mexico.

  3. Kram, tell DiPro to call me, please…
