Yankees Fans Misled By Pepsi Promotion



****
Today, New York Yankees fans attended a Pepsi promotion in Times Square hoping for chances to win opening day tickets to the new stadium, but the tickets, which were difficult to track down due to poor organization on Pepsi's part, were actually for a game in June. Furthermore, the 250 pairs that were promised were actually only 100 pairs.

The fans, who were made to sprint through traffic over multiple city blocks when locations for the promotion changed, quickly turned against the soda brand by pooring out their beverages and chanting anti-Pepsi phrases. Yankees fans are even threatening a boycott of Pepsi. An appearance by Yankee great Goose Gossage could not even settle the angry mob, as he had to be whisked away, as a precaution, according to the Daily News.

Ooo, I'd hate to see what "the worst fans in sports" (Philadelphia fans) would have done to their free Pepsi cans and beloved reliever in that situation. Because this happened in a non-Philly city, the story will be gone in 12 hours, or so. But bet your bottom cheese steak that if this happened in Philadelphia, ESPN and the national media, that loves to throw their "Philly boo bird" spin on everything, would have this story lasting for years. We'd sit down and talk about that great playoff run from 2007 till whenever, someday, and some jackhole would chime in with, "Yeah, I remember when the Phillies won it all and the fans still booed Adam Eaton's dying grandmother at ring day, and threw free soda cans at Steve Bedrosian's head."

Yeah, if this happened in Phillies, first thing on ESPN.

I used to like the Yankees but went to a game there in '04 and thought their fans were obnoxious drunks (except for the kids). Now I dislike that team almost as much as I've come to loathe Notre Dame. Although I don't have a first-person experience with fans from "The City of Brotherly Shove", a friend who grew up there says they're the rudest in America. Alcohol may factor in.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion.

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
