Adriaaaaann!!!!! – The ‘Lil Wilpons Have A Promotion For The Ages

Posted in Baseball, Cinema at 2:32 pm by

The old ages, that it.  Apparently, a recent ‘roid run in doesn’t preclude an MLB affiliate from being associated with Frank Stallone’s brother.

On July 28th, the Brooklyn Cyclones will celebrate Sylvester Stallone — one of the most iconic Hollywood stars of our generation — on “Sly Night” at KeySpan Park.

Stallone has created some of the most long-lasting and legendary characters in pop-culture history, from Rocky Balboa to John Rambo, to Lincoln Hawk, to Marion Cobretti, to Snaps Provolone, to Ray Tango, and more.

The Academy Award winner’s turn as the underdog fighter from the mean streets of Philly immortalized him to millions. On Saturday, July 28th, the Cyclones will pay tribute to him in a number of ways:

The team will show a variety of Stallone-themed entertainment throughout the night.

Fans are invited to dress up as their favorite Stallone character, with the winning costume receiving a prize pack.

Anyone named “Sylvester” will be admitted to the ballpark at no charge.

In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the 1987 movie “Over The Top” (in which Stallone plays a struggling trucker competing in a Las Vegas Arm Wrestling Championship, and sporting a New York City Arm Wrestling T-shirt), the New York Arm Wrestling Association (NYAWA) will host over 100 men and women competing that day for the 25th Annual White Castle ˜Kingsboro™ Golden Arm Wrestling titles, featuring a championship match taking place on the dugout during that night’s game!

    I had no idea just how many unconvincingly named characters Sly had played. In thanks for the big laughs in the names Ray Tango and Marion Cobretti, I think I at least owe it to the dude to put on reflective shades, a leather jacket and have a match (why? because it’s tough, and crime is the disease, and he’s the cure) sticking out of my mouth at the ol’ ballyard. Or maybe I can just hope “Cobra” is showing on TNT that night.

    I’ll meet you there in my Judge Dredd outfit, which coincidentally enough doubles as my regular Saturday night garb.
