Go to Mets Game, Get Free Hugs

Ladies and gentlemen, Mets.com:

The New York Mets today announced they are teaming up with Nick Cannon, host of 92.3 NOW's Morning Show, to "Hug It Out" and help Cannon break the Guinness World Record for most hugs in one hour this Friday, August 19 at Citi Field.

Cannon, who is also the host of NBC's "America's Got Talent," is planning to hug more than 1,800 people to break the existing record of hugs given out in an hour. 

The first 100 fans to line up to hug Cannon will receive Mets tickets for that night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers at 7:10 p.m. Everyone who hugs Cannon to help him break the record will receive a commemorative t-shirt.


Oh fuck. Really? Show up to a Mets game and get a chance to hug Mariah Carey's lame duck husband? This is that part of every single sports movie where the team just decides to shed all remaining strands of dignity and go for broke by doing crazy things like trading in the team jet for a prop plane. I'm telling you, it's coming- soon the Mets are going to be flying on Air Wisconsin. May God have mercy on their souls.

The Mets: America's car accident.

  1. The Phils should just have the same promotion next week and have Chooch hug 1,801 people just to show them up. They would have a line four times around the stadium.

  2. You’ve almost got this story correct. In a slight omission by your part you forgot to highlight that Nick Cannon is actually giving MOUTH hugs, to an ALL male review of degenerate Mets fans.
    Kyle, please edit your blog before posting in the future.

  3. Ewwww, considering who he’s married to, I wouldn’t touch that with a ten-foot pole!

  4. Cant believe you missed this.
    Had to use the “Daddy, Nick Cannon is Hiiaaalirious”
    line from the Chapelle Show somewhere in this story
    Missed a golden opportunity here kyle.
    Stay golden ponyboy

  5. That’s like a hug every two seconds for an hour straight. If he actually does it, that’s sorta crazy.
