The Best MLB Promotional Night In History

If nothing else, this is one helluva promotional poster. On Tuesday, August 9th, the San Francisco Giants will be holding Grateful Dead Night at AT&T Park. The night will feature performances by a number of Grateful Dead tribute bands and original members of the band will be in attendance to throw out the first pitch. One thing I am a little confused by, is Bill Walton being a part of singing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the 7th inning stretch. I know Walton is a huge Deadhead and has attended over 650 Dead shows in his lifetime, including their 1978 show in Egypt playing in front of the pyramids, but the last thing I want to hear is Walton's annoying rasp playing over some giant loudspeakers. To compensate, every fan in attendance will be given a special limited edition "Dancing Bears" collectible statue, complete with two tabs of acid taped to the underside. Who knows, maybe Madison Bumgarner will even drop a tab before taking the mound and try and pull an old Dock Ellis no hitter type of performance. The Giants will be hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates that night so that probably wouldn't be too difficult.
