Less than the cost of marriage

Being wildly original doesn't come cheap.

monoski: Less than the cost of marriage


If you're a Dodger fan, it's probably just cheaper to buy 2 round-trip airline tickets to Atlanta, 2 tickets to a Dodgers-Braves tilt, 6 ballpark beers and 3 hotdogs, the Hope diamond, and a Congressman* than it'd be to propose with the scoreboard in Dodger Stadium.

For some reason I figured the Yankees would be one of the ones that charged the most. But damn Nats and Dodgers.

Interesting, the Cardinals don't allow it on game days but will do it as part of a private tour.

Explains why I've never seen one at a game. As it should be. Baseball (in St. Louis, anyway) is serious business.

I was thinking the same thing - and yep, Baltimore is one of the 'does not allow' stadiums.

More interesting - remembering the time someone pranked their friend by buying a proposal board for the dude and his girlfriend. Not at dude's request. Or with his knowledge.

Funny, but felt bad for her.

How does that work at Wrigley?  Are you limited to 18 charicters to fit on the other games section?

and being publicly humiliated when she says no:  priceless

Dodgers: "$2,500: Proposal featured live on video board (limit one per month)."

(raises hand) Teacher, why would someone need more than one live video proposal in a month?

It should cost the payroll of the starting lineup for one inning.

So about $24k for the Pirates, $40k for the Dodgers.

Proceeds should go to free ice cream for everyone in the stadium who has to put up with your narcissism.

So messing with your friend when he has tickets to a yankees game would cost only $100?  Good deal.

(Yankee Prankee:  a video wherin one man puts a video proposal on the screen saying his friend is asking his girlfriend to get married).

Over here in the minors (Midwest League) not only was the proposal free, the team arranged for the wedding, too (everything donated). The home team even played in tuxedo jerseys for that game.

Nats have gotten big and the DC area is getting known for extravagant weddings for power couples.  Last year an Indian businessman paid for parading an elephant downtown as part of his wedding.

I find it funny that the Pirates charge at all.  I figure they assume you'll bring the girlfriend, so that's another ticket sold!

Or $75 according to TFA.

How much for a gay marriage proposal?

I believe they've had a secondary video screen for a few years now.  The main scoreboard is still the manual one, but they do have video.

I thought for sure the Yankees would be on the "Do Not Allow" list. Huh.
 
2014-04-01 04:36:08 PM
Nothing, because I hate baseball and marriage.
 
2014-04-01 09:56:18 PM
So, there's the "kiss-cam" and the "marriage proposal" billboard, but why isn't there a "will you bone me tonight" live cam/board?
It seems like MLB is missing out on a step that they can really take advantage of.
 
2014-04-01 10:10:56 PM
I like that the Mets don't allow it.  They don't to ruin the happy memories.

And miss out on an income source?  Not a chance.

You know, it's funny. So many times I've wondered about your opinions on these two matters and I never had the courage to ask, whoever you are. But now my questions have been answered without me having to fear your awe-inspiring rejection.

Thanks for taking the time out of your SUPER-busy day to let us (but mostly your biggest fan, me) know about how much you hate everything this thread is about.

Truly, thank you.

Your humble servant always,

Inclemency

looked to see how high it was at Fenway and was surprised.  I expect someone in the Sox front office to see this and rectify the situation by next year, probably to the tune of 3x the current rate.

For an extra $99, Jerry Remy will look the other way while his son beats your fiancee.
