Big Lead Sports Bar



When the Pirates want to have a sponsored event, they pick one of the few players that doesn't already have a bobblehead made, they call a sponsor, and BOOM - you've got the Sony Richie Zisk bobber.
When the Pirates' AA affiliate, the Altoona Curve, decide to hold a promotion, they do things a little differently. In fact, they have more than one promotion on the same night, and sometimes, the storylines just write themselves, in a very blog-friendly way.

From the Curve's website:

Thursday June 05, 2008
Time: 7:05 PM
The Curve and New Britain Rockcats (Twins) wrap up their three-game series on Thursday night.
Steelers placekicker Jeff Reed will throw out a ceremonial first pitch, take part in the Curve GameDay show, meet with fans and sign autographs. Gates open extra early at 5:30 p.m. so come early and enjoy great drink specials on Thirsty Thursday.

That's right, they invited this man to a game played on Thirsty Thursday. Talk about a stroke of brilliance from the promotions department; whoever thought of this union is definitely in line for a late-season call-up to The Show.
