when the Mets booked REO Speedwagon Dave Howard: We need ideas people, we need to put butts in the seats! Man 1: We could bring back Banner Day? Howard: Great idea! What else? Man 2: Bobbleheads of former players, like Keith and whatnot. Howard: Consider it done. Who else has something? Man 3: Concerts after the games! It works well on salsa night, so why not try that with non-salsa music? Howard: I like it, who should we get? Man 3: How about McCartney? It would be like when the Beatles played Shea! Howard: Too expensive. Man 2: Jimi Hendrix? Howard: He's been dead for 40 years. Man 4: Bronson Arroyo? I bet he'd be cheap. Howard: You're fired. Man 3: Well, actually guys, I had someone in mind. Howard: Who? Man 3: REO Speedwagon. It will really let the fans think its 1986 again, as if Tim Teufel coaching third wasn't enough. (Everybody stares at Man 3 in silence) Howard: We are not hiring REO Speedwagon to do a post game concert. 10 MINUTES LATER Howard: I can't believe we hired REO Speedwagon to do a post game concert.
