Here’s your wiener winner of promotions for the season: the Richmond Flying Squirrels (Class AA; Eastern League) are tying a major scandal to a $1 hot-dog night.
The Salute to Scandal Night is scheduled for Thursday, August 1. Headlining the night will be $1 hot dogs available at all of the Flying Squirrels concession stands.
“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.”
Fans in attendance will be invited that night to tweet pictures enjoying their $1 hot dogs to @GoSquirrels for the chance to win prizes. Other select fans will be invited to participate in contests between innings that pay tribute to certain celebrities who have been in the spotlight for their scandals. Some examples include the “Brett Favre Football Throw” and the “Tiger Woods Closest to the Pin Challenge.” To end the night with a bang, the Flying Squirrels will have a postgame fireworks extravaganza courtesy of Coventry Health Care and Your Local Ford Dealers.
