Tampa Bay Rays Announce iPhone 5 Giveaway Night

Sep 17, 2013

















Tampa, FL - After attracting 10,000 fans Monday to a crucial game against the Texas Rangers, the embarrassed Tampa Bay Rays announced that this Friday will be iPhone 5 Night, with the first 18,000 fans receiving Apple's latest smartphone free.

"We believe a crowd of 19,000 is a real possibility," said Tampa Bay Rays' owner Stuart Sternberg, who added that no one receiving an iPhone, even a 5c, would be forced to stay more than one inning of the pivotal game against the Orioles.

Sternberg said he hoped to announce Big Screen TV and Tesla Roadster promotions next week.

So, it's over for my beloved Yankees, most of whoms/whose names I don't recognize at the end of this season. I will see Mo tonight, last time. The Mo bobble fiasco, I may be only one of few who chose to retain the paper-voucher(as the memento) and watch the game(as the memento)rather than snake through the stadium slowly to collect(I saw it), this rinky-dink piece of ****(doesn't look like him) from a company across the nation who was late to deliver. Don't get me started, W.Bufffet style.

I survived the Cross Bronx Express traffic, waited on a long line, watched my Yankees lose and all I got was this paper voucher ! Me want bobble-heads to make-up in the next 5 games.

But iPhones are more expensive than tickets, so this doesn't make sense to me. At least, so far.

Sent from my I-phone;  Have tickets to the Mariano Bobble Head giveaway at Yankee Stadium.  I hope to be one of the first of the 18,000 lucky fans.  Tampa's not New York, win or lose, we all know that.  If you can drive a Tesla, do it.
