The St. Louis Cardinals run a promotion where fans get a dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for $2.99 if the team has more than nine hits in a game. They had nine hits in an 8-1 win over the Reds Tuesday and Brandon Phillips tweeted that he’d like some doughnuts. The Cincinnati second baseman wrote on twitter “Since the Cards got 9 hits tonight, can someone hook me up with some Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for $2.99? I saw the promotion at the game. LOL.”
He asked and the Cardinals marketing team delivered, as we learned from SI Hot Clicks. Check it out:
Though Phillips was grateful for the doughnuts, he said he wasn’t planning on eating them. Why? If you’ve seen Van Wilder you’ll understand.
The real surprise with this story is that Phillips is on good terms with the Cardinals. Remember what he said about them last year and what it caused? Yeah, probably a good idea to avoid eating those, Brandon.
