Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Subject: First 500 Ticket Buyers Get Gasoline

The first 500 fans to purchase select seats in the field level outfield for Friday home games will not only have a chance to win a new GM vehicle with the GM Drive It Outta the Park Sweepstakes, but will receive a free $10 Chevron Gift Card!

It's got to be a typo- $100 gas card. Nothing like encouraging fuel conservation.

I don't think it's a typo. I recently stayed at a hotel where they gave every guest a $10 gas card. I haven't used it yet because it was for a chain of stations that doesn't have any locations in my town. Besides, right now it would only buy me between 2 and 3 gallons - rah rah.

I suggest they have a "Win a GM car and be GM for a day" contest. I bet that would be a roaring success.

Indeed, a better promotion would be a coupon worth 5 gallons of gas, regardless of price.

It's $10 for all 500 fans - that's the thing, so $100 would be way too much. Think back to the year 2000 - would anyone have given a gas card like this?
