On the heels of the announcement will rightly be honoured with a place on the Level Of Excellence, the Jays have announced their full promotional schedule for the 2013 season, and… uh… yeah, the more I think about this post, the more I realize that I don’t really care about promotions, frankly.
You can see the full list in an official release from the club, and… OK, there are a couple ones worth commenting on: The lack of any mention of the horrifically annoying “Tweeting Tuesdays” (ahhh, but apparently we’re not so lucky on that front, says the full-on schedule); the maple-riffic Brett Lawrie bobblehead giveaway; the fact that sad, confused people are going to think that, just because JP Arencibia gets a bobblehead, it means he’s definitely not going to be moved; how it’s kinda rich that Carlos Delgado Level Of Excellence event comes just three weeks after the Armed Forces-celebrating Canada Day event.
But that’s probably all the commentary needed on this subject, to be honest– well, except maybe for a little diatribe on how the expectation of reverence has been shoved down our throats so much that I feel uncomfortable even just openly wondering whether all the military stuff, especially when related to sporting events, at this point, despite my having all kinds of respect for those who serve (though not necessarily any more than for, I dunno, firefighters), might not be a little grotesque. But I’ll choose to exercise good judgement and decline to go anywhere near there.
So… um… yeah. Promos!
