Not-so-saintly St. Paul Saints

The St. Paul Saints have always had crazy promotions. This ESPN article mentions yet another one, this time taking a dig at the recent legal trouble of Minnesota Vikings players.

Team executives say the rubber boats, each three inches by five inches, they’ll be giving away on May 27 to the first 2,500 fans at Midway Stadium is to honor the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the television show, “The Love Boat.”

But they have another vessel in mind, too, a “Love Boat” that has nothing at all to do with Capt. Stubing, Gopher and Cruise Director Julie.

Here’s a hint: The boat’s colors are purple and yellow.

Yes, it’s meant to be a replica of one of the ships rented by members of the local NFL team back on Oct. 6. For that little cruise, four Minnesota Vikings were charged with indecent conduct and lewdness related to alleged sexual activities that took place on the charters.

Meanwhile, Ham Solo (pictured above), the team mascot, will be making his swan song appearance tonight.
