ESPN - For one night, fans of the Peoria Chiefs can have their own replica of LeBron James’ first championship ring. Call it the cheapest promotion in sports history because, like James’ ring, the handout doesn’t exist. The Chiefs, a Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs in the Midwest League, will hold a LeBron James NBA Championship Replica Giveaway night on Thursday, poking fun at the Miami Heat star’s loss in the NBA Finals to the Dallas Mavericks. “Replica rings” — also known as air — will be handed out by stadium workers as fans enter the park, according to Chiefs spokesman Nathan Baliva. Throughout the game, Peoria will honor “a true champion,” the Chicago Bills six NBA titles with video clips and audio highlights and the Chiefs will take the field to “Sirius,” the Alan Parson Project song used by the Bulls during their player introductions. The Chiefs said they are “looking into” whether they can skip the fourth inning to poke fun at James, who scored just 18 points during the fourth quarter in six NBA Finals games.”We aren’t sure if the league will allow it,” Peoria president Rocky Vonachen said in a statement. “But if LeBron doesn’t need to show up for the fourth, maybe we won’t either.”
After reading this, I can now say with certainty that the Peoria Chiefs are my new favorite baseball team, followed by my nephews little league team and then finally the Cubs. This promotion is genius. It costs absolutely no money to do and will be remembered by the fans forever.
The only thing that could make this better was if one lucky fan got to sleep with Lebron's mom or girlfriend, of course that's assuming they aren't sleeping with NBA players at the time.
PS- If youre going to attend the game in Peoria, would you mind stopping by the Pair-a-dice Casino. They are "holding" $1,500 for me and I'm not sure when I will get back down there. Thanks.
