2008 Promotions: Dollar Dogs, Disco, Dreidels

The Phillies have announced their giveaway and celebration days for 2008.

Dates to remember:

March 31 vs Washington – Opening day. Phillies will raise the NL East Champion banner and fans will get replicas. I just love saying that first part.

April 2 vs Washington – Opening night. Maroon old-school shirts with “Opening Night 2008” emblazoned on the back. Methinks this will be the hot shirt for 2008. Also, yes, one of the best nights ever, a Dollar Dog Night.

Other Dollar Dog Nights:
April 15 (Tues.)
April 29 (Tues.)
May 13 (Tues.)
May 26 (Mon.)
June 3 (Tues.)
Aug. 19 (Tues.)
Sept. 9 (Tues.)

April 3 vs. Washington – First showing of pinstripe-less alternate uniform (against a team with almost the same kind of uniform).

April 30 vs. San Diego – Jamie Moyer bobblehead day. Awesome.

May 3 vs San Francisco – Chase Utley life-size growth chart. If you go, steal one of these for children 14-and-under and give it to your girlfriend, I promise you she’ll make it worth your while.

May 16 vs Toronto – Irish celebration. If you go, wear a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” pin and walk around Ashburn Alley all night, I promise you your girlfriend will break up with you.

May 18 vs Toronto – Phanatic’s birthday. Always a good day at the park.

June 1 vs Florida – “Father’s Day” game. Take dad.

June 4 vs Cincinnati – Boast to Reds fans about how Jimmy Rollins is better than Barry Larkin as you hold up your Rollins MVP bobblehead.

July 9 vs St. Louis and July 11 vs Arizona – Fireworks nights.

July 12 vs Arizona – Italian celebration. Wear a tight T-shirt, spike your hair and tan yourself before going. Also, make stupid gestures. Just kidding, Italians.

July 13 vs Arizona – Shane Victorino “Flyin’ Hawaiian” Figurine. Back by popular demand, Vic’s getting Run No. 2 as a Bobblehip . Hopefully he nails another game-winner.

Aug. 5 vs Florida – Ladies Night. I hear they’ll install a pole in left field for Burrell to get the mood started. I’m already getting a bunch of guys together so we can go and hit on chicks.

Aug. 22 vs Dodgers – 1970s Retro Night. I cannot wait.

They’re also throwing in a Jewish Heritage night to go along with the Irish, Itaian and Hispanic nights. I hope Mike Lieberthal returns for that one. Mark down your calendars, fans, which games are you heading to?

    College night should be a blast, literally.

    Julie, it’s in my drunken Irish nature to attack those greasy Italians whenever possible. You’ll just have to deal with it.

    Corrected. Thanks. For some reason I thought we didn’t have a game this year, but should’ve checked. I remember in the past few years the Phils haven’t played much at home over the Fourth.

    Top 10 Things I’m Not Looking Forward to
    1 through 10: Hearing Chris Wheeler talk about any of these.

    Excellent list, though.

    if you have a jewish night, beware of marketing the day vs. the mets. I will be down there with 5.000 jewish met fans who also wear Giants hats. Couldn’t get any worse for the philly phanatics!
