Yes, the Yankees' July 14 game against the Princeton Rays will be dedicated entirely to memes -- on the jumbotron, in the ballpark and, most importantly, on the uniforms. Fans can create a Yankees-related meme of themselves and/or their friends and submit it to the team, which will put the best ones on that night's jerseys. But that's not even the best part: The four very best memes will be selected for inclusion in a Twitter poll, with the winner getting two tickets to the game, their very own meme uni and the chance to throw out the first pitch.
As an example of the type of #content they're looking for, the team included the following:
A solid meme, perfectly respectable. If we may be so bold, however, we've included a few more to help get your creative juices flowing.
And now, there's only one thing left to do: Email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, and may the best meme win.
