Leave it to the Saint Paul Saints. They’re giving away souvenir cups.
“We wanted to do a memorable giveaway that would help people in these tough times,” said Saints President Mike Veeck in a press release. “We thought about a batting helmet, but clearly people haven’t been using their heads for a while, so we figured this was the next best thing to help people defend their futures. We’re going to find out if people see the world with a cup half full, or a cup half empty.”
It’s not quite as good as the “bobblehead” the Saints gave away after the arrest of Sen. Larry Craig at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport. But it’s close.
