Toledo Mud Hens Unveil Ghostbusters Jerseys, greatest promotional event since the symmetrical book stacking during Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1943
The Toledo Mud Hens, realizing that their city was headed for a disaster of biblical proportions, averted all that today when they announced that on May 30th, they’ll be wearing Ghostbusters uniforms when they take the field against the Charlotte Nights.
The evening, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters (the greatest film of all-time) and honoring the passing of Harold Ramis, has quickly become the 35-foot, 600 pound Twinkie of promotions.
While I’ll be scouring for affordable flights to Toledo, hoping to score one of the jerseys when they are put up for silent auction, selling one of my kidneys if I must, there have been no words yet on whether players will be required to wear proton packs to the plate or if they’ll have to battle Sumerian gods when running the bases. We can only hope that they will.
There is some concern, however, that the Mud Hens’ stadium, Fifth Third Field, is actually just a huge super-conductive antenna that was designed and built expressly for the purpose of pulling in and concentrating spiritual turbulence. But I’m sure professionals will be on hand to deal with that.
