Is someone willing to buy me a plane ticket to Portland?

The AAA ball club Portland Beavers are holding "Arthur Andersen Appreciation Night" on July 18. Parts of this promotion involve free admission for anyone named "Arthur" or "Andersen" (don't know about "Anderson" or "Andersson"), shredding stations around Portland General Electric Park for old documents, and the first person named "Arthur Andersen" gets a luxury box for 80 people one night.

In other minor league news, the owner of the Charleston (SC) Riverdogs, the always-wacky Mike Veeck, is sponsoring "Nobody Night", where they will lock the gates and have a party outside in order to get an official attendance of zero.

The majors might have a "Nobody Night" in the near future, but it won't be because of any promotions.
