Fun Friday: Who Wants Some Free Giants Tickets?

San-Francisco-Giants-logo-745506.jpgGreetings, Loyal Readers! There’s quite a bit going on, esp. with regard to stop consolidation and whatnot, but we’ll save that talk for another day. Today is Fun Friday, and today we have a really fun one – a giveaway for two tickets to TONIGHT’S GIANTS GAME AT 7:15pm!
I’ve never done one of these before, so bear with me if there’s a few bugs. That said, I expect to be doing more of these in the future, so let’s have some quickfire challenge fun with it. The only rules are these:
1. You have to be able to get the tickets from me in person sometime before the game. I’m in the Inner Sunset, so plan accordingly.
2. Today’s challenge: If you were in charge of MUNI and had to come up with a hilarious new marketing slogan for MUNI, what would it be (in 50 words or less)? The one that makes me and my neighbors laugh so hard diet soda comes out my nose wins. Submit them via the comments section.
3. Deadline is 6pm, so we have time to meet up on my way out the door to a previous engagement. I can meet you in the Inner Sunset, or by Safeway.
This is a new thing for me to try, so bear with me, again, with any bugs. I plan on doing a few more over the summer with some other donated items, so if you don’t win this time, play again soon!
And, because I think this is hilarious, once again, Conan O’Brien’s “Twitter Tracker!”

  1. San Francisco Muni: Transporting everyone since 1912. Transporting Newsom however, is another story.

    MUNI: We limp along that extra block, so you don’t have to!
    -or-
    MUNI: Lowering expectations and raising fares since 1912.
    -or-
    MUNI: Because cabs don’t exist west of Stanyan.
    …and remember, if during your trip another passenger rests their genitals on YOU, your next ride is on US – guaranteed!

  3. Brandon says:

    Riding MUNI: So exciting you’ll want to hump your fellow passengers.

  4. Muni: It could be worse.
    -or-
    Muni: Lowering your expectations, daily.
    -or-
    Muni: America’s Number One Transit System!*
    *as defined as America’s first public-owned transit system. (That part would be in miniscule letters at the bottom of the ad)

  5. Slappy says:

    Muni slogan:
    “Muni: C’mon, we DARE you”

  6. Katie says:

    Muni: We rest, while you wait.
    Muni: Keeping 311 in business.

  7. Chris R says:

    Muni: Because GM Doesn’t Make Trains!

  8. Muni: Proving rude and careless operators for your comfort.

  9. Maia says:

    City officials recommend MUNI, because 3.6 mph *is* a little faster than a typical adult can walk

  10. Sean says:

    Muni: Extended transfers for your pleasure.
    Muni: Our back door is always open.

  11. Stan says:

    Muni: When you absolutely, positively, have to be there overnight.
    Muni: The Second Best Mass Transit system in America*
    *Disclaimer: In an independent study, every other system was tied for first
    Gas, grass, or ass, nobody rides for free. Unless you take Muni.

    Muni Slogan:
    I’m sorry, the new slogan is not ready yet. We expect to finish the EIR outlining a call for proposals for a new slogan by 2006. Due to delays in the CEQA process we have revised a data for the arrival of our new slogan – we expect it to be ready in the 3rd quarter, 2014. We are currently in the process of soliciting bids for the Work Rules negotiation committee (municipal code 3425 subsection 5.2) which should expedite the process of providing users with a new slogan, provided that appropriate federal matching funds are forthcoming. If the committee in charge of soliciting bids for the external contractor to conduct the EIR is able to change the negotiating lead-partner under section 45.2, the process will be submitted to four (4) rounds of internal bidding before the completion of the transfer of the balance of the time debt for the sixteen (16) day waiting period. If the committee in charge of soliciting bids for the external contractor to conduct the EIR is NOT able to change the negotiating lead-part…..ARRRRGGGHHHH JUST MAKE MY BUS SHOW UP ON TIME!!!!
    – Note time posted… too late to ‘win’ anything in the competition. Makes the slogan that much more accurate. . .

    Ok it’s 6pm and that means submissions are over. In the future, I’ll get the prizes way in advance (these just fell into my lap at the last minute hence the last minuteness).
    All of you did great, and first I want to thank everyone for their submissions – I’d shared some with some neighbors and we all got a laugh. Two, however stuck out the most – Stan’s appropriation of the Fedex Slogan, and Sean’s one on transfers.
    Since I wasn’t able to decide, and I need to get the tickets I did a coin toss and the winner is Reader Sean!
    Thanks for playing and we WILL have more contests in the future so keep reading Fun Friday!

  14. Stan says:

    I feel like I got screwed over, but this time it was for free, instead of it costing me $1.50 like it usually does.

  15. Sean Rea says:

    Thanks for the tickets! Great seats just five or six rows back and to the left of home plate! Giants won 3-0.
