These tweets from Andrew Baggarly and Alex Pavlovic got my mind wandering and a few minutes later, I came up with the following:
As a kid, I remember looking at old baseball cards and having my mind blown at how ridiculously awesome the Pirates’ pillbox caps were. The Giant’s version of the Pillbox Cap would be given out to the first 20,000 (disappointed) fans.
Get it? At Giant’s fanfest this year, I had the opportunity (?) to see dozens of fans whip off their belts to have signed by Brandon Belt. Or at least I hope that’s what was going on. NOTE: The Brandon Belt would be given away on opening day with the promise of keeping your pants up, but may send your pants down occasionally until ready to come back up after making a few adjustments.
Q: What do you get when you mix the classiness of the Pillbox Cap with the Brandon Belt? A: A belt-buckled top hat made from the pelt of a baby giraffe!
Sometimes (and always, in my mind) the craziest ideas turn out to be the best (worst).
What imaginary Giant’s giveaways would YOU like to see? Let me know in the comments!
