There is no try
And by that I mean that whoever sat around the boardroom tables at MLB and/or Kinect when this promotion was conceived wasn’t even trying to be anything other than lazy and sexist:
If your first response is “Baseball…..Star Wars…..video games…..contest open to anyone 18 and older…..wait, why is this an ‘Ultimate Father-Son Sweepstakes’ when all these things could apply and appeal to girls and women, too? I mean, besides the obvious ‘I am your father’ joke, which stopped being funny about twenty years ago,” then congratulations! Not only are you not a lazy sexist, but you also know more about Star Wars than the folks at MLB and Kinect think you do.
If you’d like to enter the contest, visit the sweepstakes page at MLB.com. And may the f…..never mind.
