The gulp seen and heard around the world just continues to show no signs of slowing down. The infamous ‘water sip’ taken by Florida politician Marco Rubio has spun off a legion of internet memes and twitter accounts. Now a minor league baseball team is looking to cash out on the internet’s newest meme.
As reported by The Victory Formation the Fort Meyers Miracles will host a ‘Marco Rubio water Giveaway Night’ sometime during the season to help drawn in fans.
“The idea really came about while I was watching The Today Show,”
“They had a two-minute recap of all the late night humor about the water bottle incident, and it seemed like a fun thing to get in on, since Rubio is based in Florida and it’s in the news.”
“We’re still working on it, but I’m sure the bottles will have creative labeling of some sort,”
“It’s hot in Florida during baseball season, and any time you can combine hydration with current events, it’s a good thing.”
But the single A team will not simply hold off at just giving away water, no, they will incorporate water into the entire night’s game. The game will also feature a ‘rain dance’ by the groundscrew and a game of Marco Polo as well.
I’m not quite sure if this is the most ingenious thing I’ve heard of or just the silliest. Hopefully it yields good results.
