View Full Version : Is it a Royal Turkey Day? (Planetsub)

06-18-2007, 10:17 AM
OK... so a friend of mine doesn't follow the Royals, but loves to take advantage of Planetsub's $1.99 turkey sandwich the day after a Royals win. He asks me about 3 times a week if it's a Royal Turkey day. Well... we came up with a small simple site that's updated daily to tell him whether he can enjoy a fine turkey sammy for cheap. It started as a novelty, but he's got other people checking it too. I realize it would be just as easy to open kcroyals.com or mlb.com, but the idea is a simple easy to remember site for <strike>idiots</strike> people who don't follow baseball.



The site contains one graphic, which will tell you today's status.

Here's the legend:

Yeah! Turkey Day! http://a.web.umkc.edu/andersonbc/images/wonSmall.gif

No turkey for you!http://a.web.umkc.edu/andersonbc/images/lostSmall.gif

Might as well stick some google adsense ads on it if you're going to keep it updated.

Yes... unless bare nekkid turkeys are prohibited at your place of work...

The above graphics are all you'll see on the site.

You ought to make a simple widget for users to run on their desktop.

He really cares that much about saving a buck or two on a turkey sandwich?

Take in a refill cup and you can have lunch for like $2. If you were going to eat there every couple of weeks anyway why not hit it on that day?

My wife used to work at Planet Sub so we get hooked up w/ free chips & a drink when we go in there usually. When the Royals win it makes it an even better deal.

FYI: The Turkey Club is included in the promotion, but it is 2.49 instead of 1.99.

$2 sandwich after a Royals win?

they must not have much faith.

no minimum number of hits or runs or anything?
