Watch Navy hoops; play Rock-Paper-Scissors
For years minor league baseball teams have been the ultimate kings of promotion. These teams in places like Hickory, North Carolina and Hillsboro, Oregon, have to be at their creative peak to get people through the doors in the dog days of summer. It seems though that the Naval Academy has been taking notes from some of these places as the athletic department has come up with a brilliant promotion for the game against Boston University on Wednesday February 5th.
The beauty of a good promotion is often in its pure simplicity and its ability to get people talking when they hear about it. To this end the Mids have struck gold with one of the most simple and effective games of all time: Rock-Paper-Scissors. If you arrive outside Alumni Hall between 6:15pm and 6:45pm on game day you can challenge Bill the Goat to a winner takes all version of the game. You beat him and you get in for free, you lose and you pay the regular $10 entry fee.
Like everyone else I like things that are free. Here are three essential Rock-Paper-Scissors tips to help you take down the goat in this genius promotion:
1 – Scout him. Get there early and get on Bill like a card counter in Vegas. Watch for patterns in his throws and make him pay.
2 – I am far from convinced that Bill's hand can make a proper scissors gesture. Throw paper then claim shenanigans if it fails.
3 – If you are not feeling confident heading in, challenge Bill to a round of rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock instead. You will spend so much time explaining the rules that the PR staff will give you a free ticket just to keep the line moving.
So there you go. Three foolproof ways to get into the game for free. Enjoy and you can thank me later.
