Clone College

I went to see the Brooklyn Cyclones tonight, the minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. The team is named after the Cyclone, the famous Coney Island rollercoaster, which can be seen past the left field wall since the stadium is next to the Coney Island boardwalk. Now if it weren't enough that the team is called the Cyclones and you can see the actual Cyclone in the distance with "CYCLONE" in lights, there is an advertisement on the left field wall FOR THE CYCLONE. This is of course below the fake rollercoaster on top of the scoreboard in left field. And it remains there when they show the mascot (no, not a rollercoater) riding the Cyclone on the big screen below the fake rollercoaster and next to the real one from the perspective of someone watching from the stands. They might wanna take a gamble and spend that sign money on filling in the missing planks on the ride.
