The Tampa Bay Rays Want $2 And If They Do Not Get It… The City of Tampa Bay Should Be Ashamed

With any reference made to $2… we just can not help to think back to the 1985 Movie Classic “Better Off Dead” starring John Cusack.  The scene with little Johnny (The Paperboy) looking to collect $2 from newspaper deliveries is memorable.  Need a “Better Off Dead” refresher?  View scene on YouTube HERE.  As the movie plot thickens, the line “$2… I want my $2” became cemented in your memory bank.  Now, thanks to the Tampa Bay Rays the words “Two Dollars” has NEW meaning!

The Tampa Bay Rays recently announced that THOUSANDS of $2 tickets are available for the July 1-3 series Vs Baltimore Orioles.  In addition, fans will have the opportunity to purchase peanuts and fountain drinks at a cost of $2.  Currently, not confident that $2 will cover the cost of a 7-Eleven Vitamin Water.  We are torn on if the $2 promotion is a great way to market creatively, or an embarrassment to the city of Tampa Bay for not being able to support a team currently 11 games over .500.

The upcoming 3 game set versus “Birdland” will be the 1st Home games for the Rays since MLB gave the team permission to explore options of splitting Home games between Tampa Bay and Montreal.  Team owner Stuart Sternberg is already on record for saying how the team isn’t well-suited to stay in Florida full time.  Hello Tampa Bay – if you have any interest in keeping your team, get up and give your home team $2!

(As for Mr. Sternberg… if you are looking for ideas on to increase revenue while driving FAN ENGAGEMENT, you might want to consider this new sports game with a different twist on Fantasy Sports.  We hear great things about this game – just saying.)
