HOT! HOT! HOT!
July 6th, 2010
It has been really hot here lately, especially last week. We passed two bank signs on the way to lunch that both said 99 degrees and I thought, Man it is HOT! And then we came out after eating at Chili’s on Gunbarrell and we saw another sign that said it was even hotter.
267 DEGREES?!?!?!?!?!????? Are you kidding me?!?!?!? 267 degrees… is that Kelvin?
Nope… 267 degrees Fahrenheit.
And as an added bonus I love how it says “+” as if we weren’t sure. We walk out and see the sign… 267 degrees Fahrenheit… wait… 267 degrees ABOVE zero or BELOW???
What makes this even better is that Varsity Team Sports is owned by our very own Greg Gray! Good job, Greg, I think it is a great way to advertise:
Mom #1: Hey did you see that sign that said it was +267 degrees Fahrenheit?
Mom #2: Oh, you mean that one at Varsity Team Sports?
Mom #1: Yeah, that’s the one… which reminds me, I need to go by and get Billy another pair of baseball pants.
Genius! I asked Greg about it at church last Sunday and he said, "Oh, yeah... that's on purpose for sure. You're talking about it aren't you!"
"Yeah... " I said, "Which reminds me, can you maybe donate some softball jerseys for us next year?"
The Moral of the Story:
Good advertising always costs money. And sometimes softball jerseys!
