Pawtucket Red Sox, Boston’s Triple-A Affiliate, to Host “Free Brady Night” June 10th
I don’t know many people outside New England who feel sympathy for Tom Brady and the Patriots when it comes to this deflategate nonsense. And given how much people hate Roger Goodell, that’s really saying something.
Still, even if you hate Tom Brady with every fiber of your being, you have to love this promotion from the Pawtucket Red Sox. On Tuesday, Boston’s triple-A affiliate announced that June 10th will be “Free Brady Night” at McCoy Stadium. Anybody named Tom or Brady will get in for free, $13 box seats will go for $12, and the team will donate 25 cents from every ticket sold to one of Tom’s favorite charities. Get it? They’re giving a quarter back.
The PawSox are hosting a “Free Brady Friday” on June 10th at McCoy Stadium. Anybody named Tom, or Brady, will be admitted to the game for free with valid identification. Box seats, normally priced at $13, will be priced at $12, in honor of the quarterback’s uniform number. The club will also donate a “quarter back” on tickets sold to Best Buddies, a charity near and dear to Brady. #FreeBrady
I’m not a big fan of the “Free Brady” thing, because Tom Brady is way more “free” than 99% of us. But I am a fan of clever promotions, and this one is first rate.
Well done, PawSox.
