Even our beloved New York Mets are falling sway to the seductive baritone voice of Barack Obama. The Mets' farm team, the Brooklyn Cyclones are going to put on one hell of an even in June-- the Barack Obama sideshow.
Having seen the Cyclones play, this isn't the best piece of news. They're a good team with some heart. (PS-- I got some autographs out of the deal) But this goes too far:
When the team faces the Hudson Valley Renegades on June 23, Cyclones fans will be treated to a slew of Obama-themed gimmicks and giveaways. The team will play in special red, white and blue "Baracklyn" jerseys. The first 2,500 fans will each get an Obama bobblehead doll. And ticket prices will be reduced as part of a Cyclones economic stimulus package.
Let's go Oneonta Tigers.
