Pet Sponge Night

Just in case the heated NL East pennant race is not enough to get you to go out to Shea, may I be the one to tell you that tonight is Pet Sponge Night.

That’s right — the first 12,000 kids to enter the stadium will receive a free T-shirt courtesy of Uncle Norman’s™ Pet Sponge, the 4-in-1 pet sponge that’s good for 8 luxurious baths! I imagine it’s a sponge that would make Billy Mays proud. (Actually, we’re not sure if it’s a 3-in-1, 4-in-1, or 5-in-1 — we’re getting conflicting scouting reports. But we do know that it is Paraben free.)

Luckily, there are still seats available for this once in a lifetime offer, but hurry before the game sells out. And make sure you arrive early and have someone 12 or under in tow, or you’ll miss out.

And no, I’m not sure why this offer wasn’t combined with Dog Day at Shea last Friday. Would seem to have been a no-brainer.
