The Royals 2013 slogan: “Come to Play”

21 Comments

In 2012 the Royals used “Our Time” as its marketing slogan. That lent itself well to “… in purgatory”-style tomfoolery. They’re trying something else this year: “Come to play.” Bob Dutton quotes marketing consultant types who explain the rationale. The upshot: the Royals are going to play hard and you should come out to play at the ballpark, etc.

If normal form holds, you have approximately 72 days until the Royals season is more or less kaput, so that should be plenty of time for you to come up with little jokes and things incorporating the slogan.

But don’t use “Come to play… because, really, we need all the help we can get? Do you have a glove? If not, we can get you one.” ¬†Because I already thought of it.
