Djhbaseball's recent diary about Huston Street's intro music oddly enough got me to thinking about some ideas for A's commercials this year. Since we're all A's fans, I was thinking we should all post some ideas for this year's commercials.
Here are my top three suggestions:
1. Rookie At-Bat
This, btw, is a great prank the guys could pull on some rookies this year. The idea is we follow (front behind) Barton from the on deck circle as he makes his way to the plate when Reo Speedwagon starts blasting throughout the stadium. He come around to his front, where we see he is wearing fake breasts, make up and earrings.
We then cut to Street and Crosby laughing. Street says, "I'm so glad I'm not a rookie anymore"
Cut to tag line
This one may be in bad taste, but I think it'd be funny.
We see Swisher and Blanton driving in Fremont. They're lost.
Nick: It's got to be around here somewhere.
Blanton: How'd they build a whole new ballpark in one off season?
Nick: It's the technology they've got nowadays. I heard at the news conference we'll be able to get dressed like in the Jetsons and beam onto the field like Star Trek.
Blandon: You think they'll be able to put up a force field in the outfield?
Nick: That's a good idea. You should ask.
Blanton: Maybe we should ask for directions.
They continue to drive around.

3. Golden Thieves
We are in Eric Chavez's house. He and his wife are in bed. The sound of a window breaking is heard from downstairs that wakes his wife. She tugs him awake and tells him someone's downstairs. He grabs his bat and slowly makes his way downstairs where two men are dressed all in black, putting his Gold Gloves in a black duffel bag.
Chavez turns on the lights and lowers the bat.
Chavez: Guys, I told you, you'll get your own soon.
The two men, Mark Ellis and Mark Kotsay, turn to each other and then to Eric, shrugging their shoulders. They walk towards him, handing him the bag.
Both: Sorry, sorry.
As they leave, Ellis says to Kotsay: Wanna try Ichiro's?
