The Cyclones ARE Brooklyn


As the inauguration approaches and the reign of Barack Obama is set to begin, the ever clever minds of minor league baseball are at work as well. The Brookyln Cyclones, Single A affiliate of the Mets are, for one game, changing their name to become the Baraklyn Cyclones.

The promotion, set for June 23rd looks to be well-thought out and planned. The team has even created a special website just for this event. Among the festivities planned for the game include special Stars and Stripes uniforms for the team and economic stimulus ticket packages, (it means they are cheap.)

But wait there’s more! From the website, here are some of the other promotions that will be running that day in honor of Barack Obama:

  • FREE Barack Obama bobbleheads to the first 2,500 fans in attendance, featuring the President in a Baracklyn Cyclones Jersey
  • The Economic Stimulus Package: From 10am on January 20th – Inauguration Day – to midnight on January 23rd, ticket prices for the June 23rd game will be “rolled back” to the Cyclones’ inaugural 2001 season rates: $10 Field Box Seats, $8 Box Seats, $5 Bleacher Seats. Beginning January 24th, tickets will be priced at the regular 2009 rates ($15, $12, $8)
  • Universal Health Care: Free Band-Aids to the first 1,000 fans
  • Naming Rights: Anyone named Barack gets in for free (Bring your ID on the night of the game)
  • Joe the Plumber special: any plumber named Joe gets two free tickets – one for himself, and one to “spread the wealth” with a friend (Bring your ID and a business card or proof of employment on the night of the game)
  • Bi-Partisan Consolation Prize: anyone named McCain or Palin will get a free Bleacher Seat (Bring your ID on the night of the game)
  • A clear-cut Exit Strategy: fans will receive American Flags and discount coupons as they leave the ballpark

The Cyclones aren’t done with just that though, they also made this video, which is pretty damn funny,well done Cyclones.
