You must be kidding

Fans will go to great lengths to take advantage of ballpark promotions. Case in point: today's American Girl promotion at Great American Ball Park.

The first 6,000 kids 14 and younger in attendance at Sunday's game recieved a Reds warm-up jacket and cap for their American Girl doll.

A father, citing his open-mindedness, demanded that his son, who was clearly older than 14, be given the American Girl promotion.

Then there's the story of a woman who produced a copy of her sonogram proving she was pregnant with a child who was, at this point, younger than 14 years of age and therefore qualified for the promotion.

Instead of half-price tickets and $1 hot dogs, perhaps the Reds should offer fans free psychiatric treatment.
