Miracle Exploit ‘Water Bottle-Gate,’ Rubio Cashes In

Ft. Myers Miracle LogoThe Single-A Fort Myers Miracle (Florida State League) (and Saturday Night Live, too, of course) wasted no time cleverly exploiting (see below) U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio‘s (R-FL) awkward reach for a bottle of water while delivering the Republican response to the President’s State-of-the-Union address last Tuesday night.  But it looks like Rubio got the last laugh by hauling in $100,000 in contributions (so far) to his political action committee by unloading more than 3,450 water bottles with his name on them for a minimum contribution of $25 each.

Miracle to host Marco Rubio Water Bottle Giveaway Night

PRESS RELEASE – In honor of Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s sip seen across the country, the Fort Myers Miracle want to ensure that fans are properly hydrated for this summer’s baseball season by hosting a Marco Rubio water bottle giveaway night.

Fort Myers Miracle Marco Rubio Water Bottle-GateFans entering Hammond Stadium will receive a water bottle while being encouraged to gather in the shady parts of the ballpark to stay cool when the heat is on and prevent perspiration. The Miracle will help recreate Rubio’s thirst-quenching moment on national television by setting up a booth where fans can put on a sports jacket, stand in front of a set and down some high-quality H2O.

Those picking up tickets at the will call window should be prepared for unlicked ticket envelopes because our parched Capital Bank ticket office employees will be saving saliva. Fans will need to salvage water water wisely with special deals on high-sodium concession items such as chips, popcorn and peanuts.

In an effort to keep the field saturated, the Hammond Stadium groundscrew will participate in a mid-game rain dance because even the Earth needs a drink on a hot day. Fans can expect to make a big splash with a stadium-wide game of Marco Polo.

Of course, the Miracle will extend an invitation to Senator Rubio to throw out the first pitch, provided he uses the rosin bag beforehand and is thoroughly hydrated.

Be sure to quench your thirst and don’t miss Marco Rubio water bottle giveaway night this summer at Hammond Stadium!
