Brian Williams

Minor league sports teams have always had to come up with different promotions to get fans into the seats. The first big promotion on the schedule this season will come from the Akron RubberDucks who have scheduled a special event for April 27. It will be “Brian Williams’ Pants-on-Fire Night” to go along with National Tell a Story Day. It is a way to look at the NBC anchorman and his recent mistelling of events while in Iraq over a decade ago.

There will be suspenders handed out to the first 100 fans in the ballpark. Any fan named Brian Williams will have the chance to throw out the first pitch while a fan with the same name will be assigned to read tall tales. Fans will be able to audition to be a TV news anchor in between innings with the results sent to NBC as well along with a pair of pants allegedly from Williams being burned.

This is going to be an epic night in Akron. There is no reason for any fan in the Akron area to miss this game and the chance to read stories, throw out a first pitch and even believe they can be the next anchor of the NBC Nightly News. Williams was suspended for six months without pay by NBC earlier this week. Maybe he can even make an appearance while he has the time.
