Minor league team schedules Haynesworth conditioning night



Of all the Haynesworth gimmicks thus far, and there have been a lot, here's the best. The Hickory Crawdads, a Class A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, scheduled the "Haynesworth Conditioning Challenge" for Thursday night. You know the drill and the times (70 and 73 seconds). If you pass, you would win two season tickets for the rest of the 2010 season. If you fail, you still get a ticket to a future game.

That was supposed to be the deal, anyhow. But when Albert decided not to attempt the test on Thursday, the team rescheduled the event for next Thursday, though I can't see why they'd think that day would be any different. Crawdads: HE'S NEVER TAKING THE TEST AGAIN. More:

In the spirit of the challenge, anyone named Albert or wearing a Redskins jersey will receive a free ticket to the game. Additionally, it will be Thirsty Thursday, featuring $1 beers and Pepsis, and there will be a post-game concert at the Crawdad Cafe by Banned on Wednesday.

This is where you make the joke about how Albert Haynesworth could show up and earn two free tickets plus dollar Pepsis.

(Thanks to reader John for the tip.)

Ah, from the land of the Carolina Panthers, where a normal, rational training camp is proceeding.
