Minor League Baseball: Barack is Brooklyn

01/28/2009

Baracklyn ObamaclonesThe Brooklyn Cyclones, the short-season minor league affiliate of my beloved New York Mets, have announced that the team will be temporarily renamed the “Baracklyn Cyclones” for their June, 23rd game against the Hudson Valley Renegades.

The team will sport fashionable “Baracklyn Cyclones” jerseys, and the first 2,500 in attendance will receive Obama bobbleheads.  Individual tickets to this game have already sold out, though group tickets are still available.

Well, you can’t argue with results.

The Brooklyn Cyclones?  Never heard of them.  I’ve certainly never worked at KeySpan park as a professional juggler.  It’s not like this was my boss’ idea…

I’d just like to take this opportunity to say what an amazing idea this is!  Wow.  For the first time ever I have no sarcastic remarks in the slightest.  Brilliant.
