You gotta love minor league baseball promotions.

On the heels of Coley’s recent post about the Long Beach Armada’s “Animal Awareness” / Burn Michael Vick Day, I am proud to announce that the New York Mets’ Single-A affliate, the Savannah Sand Gnats (Mets team in the heart of Braves country), are hosting a Lindsay Lohan Drunk Driving Awareness Night at tonight’s game.

No, Lohan herself will not be present. In fact, the press release regarding the promotion doesn’t even mention her name aside from the promotion’s title. But it’s serious business nonetheless.

From the press release:

Hook Towing will have a wrecked car from a drunk driving accident on display on the plaza in front of the main gate.  Savannah Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic (HEAT) will also be at the game with its blood alcohol testing van. 

Wow. That IS sobering. Good thing, because it’s also a “Thirsty Thursday” at the ballpark, where beers will be 1/2 price! What a bargain! I swear, it’s like Lindsay Lohan herself. She makes it look like she’s available to every man who pays, but you stop yourself upon realizing that that wrecked car from Hook Towing can be YOU.
