This week has been a busy one with the Lightning losing in the playoffs, the Rays hosting the Twins at Tropicana Field and the frenzy of the Buc’s releasing their 2014 schedule, however there are a couple stories you may have missed.
Who likes to mow the grass? Personally I hate it, but The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are giving the power of the lawn mower to their fans ahead of an upcoming game against the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Jackets are letting fans decide how the outfield grass will be mowed when they host the Hokies in baseball. Fans can choose from stripes, checkerboard, and a couple other designs. All I can say is maybe they need to just giveaway bobbleheads.
One of my favorite ball parks is Fenway Park in Boston and this week I learned another reason why it’s so special. The Red Sox have a sleep room! Personally I’m a big fan of anywhere I can take a nap. Knowing this I know wonder if the guys are having slumber parties with beer and fried chicken.
Besides naps another thing I love is minor league baseball and the State College Spikes which is the affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals are hosting “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” night with uniforms that are spray painted and very early 90s. To top off the occasion Alfonso Ribeiro aka Carlton will be making a special appearance. The jerseys will be auctioned off following the game and proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
