Brooklyn Cyclones Celebrate "Fictitious Friday" at MCU ParkJanuary 18, 2013 - New York-Penn League (NYPL) Brooklyn Cyclones
Enough joking around, now here are some true statements about the plans for the evening. Anyone who purchases one ticket at regular price will be allowed to bring their make believe significant-other to the ballpark free of charge. Fans will also have the chance to draw a picture of their girlfriend, because obviously something came up and she couldn't make it, so that their friends can finally see what she looks like. As a special treat, MCU Park will host a unique petting zoo for those in attendance, featuring a unicorn, a mermaid and a Minotaur. The Cyclones are also in discussions with the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot to throw out a ceremonial first pitch that evening. In keeping with the tradition of Coney Island amusements, the Cyclones will put a spin on a traditional carnival game, as fans that are able to toss a ping-pong ball into a fish bowl will receive a catfish. Lastly, all of the player headshots used on the video board will just be random people whose photos we found on the Internet.
"Everywhere you look, there seems to be another story about an athlete that was covering up something," said Cyclones General Manager Steve Cohen. "People don't know who, or what, to believe any more. That got us thinking - let's have a night where our fans don't have to worry about what's real and what's not, we'll just tell them everything planned for that night is a hoax."
Individual tickets for the 2013 Brooklyn Cyclones season, which gets underway on June 18th, will go on sale in the Spring. Season tickets are currently available and partial season plans will go on sale in the coming weeks.
