(Sunrise, FL) – What happens when you bring a portable shower to a sports bar and offer patrons a chance to win free tickets to see their hometown baseball team in action?
Answer: some really bad singing.
Fox Sports Net Florida and Old Spice have teamed up to celebrate baseball – and really bad singing – with a wet and wild promotion, the "Old Spice High Endurance Shower, Sing and Win" sweepstakes. For the next month (July – August), Fox Sports Net viewers will see Florida Marlins fans jump in the shower (donning proper bathing attire, of course) at Mr. Moe's sports bar in Coconut Grove to sing their rendition of the classic, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." And the best of the best (or some might say, "worst of the worst") will be televised on Fox Sports Net during live Marlins game coverage in July and August. Two sample spots can be viewed online at www.showersingandwin.com.
"We are delighted to provide South Florida Marlins fans with an interactive, slightly off-the-wall opportunity to showcase their team spirit and have the chance to become part of a Fox Sports Net game telecast," noted Jeff Genthner, Fox Sports Net's Senior Vice President and General Manager.
Local participants include Miami residents Christian Carroll, Joel Esquenazi, Russ Kleiner, and Alex Delavega. For stripping down, lathering up, and exercising their vocal chords, the soapy singers receive a Fox Sports Net Prize Pack and the chance to win four tickets to see the Marlins play ball.
During four Marlins telecasts on Fox Sports Net Florida (July 17 vs. Atlanta, July 24 vs. Atlanta, July 31 vs. St. Louis, and August 7 vs. Houston), viewers will see different spots during each game showcasing this bold promotion and details on how to enter and win.
Consumers who prefer to keep their singing in the shower to themselves can join in on the fun by visiting www.showersingandwin.com and completing the online entry form. Online entrants will have the chance to win two (2) season tickets for the 2003 baseball season, tickets to individual hometown games, an Old Spice Prize Pack, which features new Old Spice High Endurance soap, or a Fox Sports Net Prize Pack, which includes a variety of Fox Sports Net apparel.
The promotion will run on Fox Sports Net Chicago, Fox Sports Net Ohio, Fox Sports Net Florida, Fox Sports Net Midwest, and Fox Sports Net Southwest. For official rules and entry details, visit www.showersingandwin.com .
