Royals, Krispy Kreme, end doughnut promotion

http://kcbuzzblog.typepad.com/kcbuzz...lukehudso.html

January 19, 2007
A sweet deal no more. Krispy Kreme promotion is out of here!

Kreme First off, the bad, sad news from this afternoon's 15th Annual Baseball Forecast Luncheon: Krispy Kreme's 12-hits-gets-you-a-dozen-dough nuts promotion is no more, says Royals president Dan Glass.

He said the dough-nut maker's corporate philosophy had changed and the company no longer wanted to continue the promotion. But Glass quipped the good news is, "We will all lose a lot of weight." And he joked Krispy Kreme execs were so startled by the team's improvements in the second half of last season that they were worried about the frequency of this year's giveway if the hit total wasn't raised to 24 for a dozen.

(Catcher John Buck talked about the pressure put on a player coming up to bat when the Royals had 11 hits and the score of up 10 runs or down 10 runs didn't matter, it changed the feel of the whole at-bat.)

Glass did say the Royals are working on a replacement promotion, but don't look for it to be free tacos or barbecue.

Other than that, the mood was upbeat at the luncheon held at the downtown Marriott.

Unlike last year, there was no cloud about the firing of the general manager or the team manager. There was no uncertainty over how to pay for overhauling the Truman Sports Complex. Jokes and one liners ruled the day. Pitcher Luke Hudson was a particularly good sport about all the jokes sent hurling his way. (Broadcaster Ryan Lefebrve started it off by reminiscing about a particularly bad outing for Hudson and then talking about his good looks and single status.)

Glass and Royals owner David Glass were late arriving for pre-luncheon media interviews due to a meeting with the architects designing the voter-approved overhaul at Kauffman Stadium.

Dan Glass told the throng that the Royals has been consulting focus groups and fans and visiting other stadiums during the off season as part of the design process. He said the priorities were to stay on budget ($250 million for Kauffman Stadium) and to "preserve and enhance" the stadium. The bulk of the work won't begin until after this upcoming season concludes.

In response to a question, Dan Glass said the team is working with Major League Baseball and local civic leaders to determine which year Kansas City will host its second All-Star game. (It definitely won't be before 2010 when construction is scheduled to be completed.) He said one of the issues being tackled now is ensuring there will be sufficient convention space for the extravaganza.

"Be ready because it is coming to Kansas City," Dan Glass said.

Among the luminaries attending the event hosted by the Kansas City Sports Commission & Foundation were Mayor Kay Barnes, former State Rep. Ralph Monaco (who wore a Royal blue 1985 World Series champion jacket) and mortage banker Jim Nutter Jr.

Crappy promotion for anyone that lived outside KC. You could only redeem the offer M-F so if you came to a weekend game you were SOL.

Yeah, but the thing is though, it was a decent promotion, especially when the Royals needed something to attract the fans and whatnot.

To me, that sucks, becuase I like going to the K to watch the guys play, and also to win some prizes and such, you know?

I think a good Royals promotion is to pick a fan at random each night...

Then let them pitch middle relief for the sixth and seventh inning.

It's weird, I was at a bunch of winning games, but I never actually ended up redeeming the donuts.

Great coffee there, though.
