Minor league baseball teams are always coming up with unique promotions, and the team in Buffalo has one that is sure to inflame the rivalry between the Bills and the Patriots.
The Buffalo Bisons, Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, have announced “Keep Brady Suspended Night,” a promotion devoted entirely to taking a swing at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Deflategate.
The team announced that it is offering two tickets for the price of one for fans who bring a properly inflated football to donate to area youth football program, and that “un-destroyed cell phone donations” will be taken for a charity that distributes used phones. The team gift shop also features a 12.5 percent discount, a reference to the 12.5 PSI minimum inflation level for an NFL football. And the Bisons are promising “scoreboard videos featuring some of sports’ greatest cheaters, with special video tribute to Patriots’ coach, Bill Belichick.”
The Pawtucket Red Sox are offering their own promotion, “Free Brady Friday,” in support of Brady.
