EVERETT, Wash. – What are the odds of winning a car in a sports-team promotion?
Well, not bad – if you’re a fan of the National Lacrosse League’s Washington Stealth averaging just over 4,000 per game in Everett’s 8,300-seat Comcast Arena.
In fact, odds are you may win that 2013 vehicle before being injured by a toilet seat (1 in 6,500), becoming a professional athlete yourself (1 in 22,000) or finally scoring a date with a super model (1 in 88,000).
Which is precisely why the Stealth, with the help of the Dwayne Lane Family of Auto Centers in Everett and Arlington, Washington, are offering-up a 2013 Chrysler 200 to a lucky fan attending Saturday’s regular season-finale against the Philadelphia Wings.
All the Stealth want – is for fans to show up.
With Stealth attendance dipping as low at 2,663 in a game against the Minnesota Swarm in early March, odds are strong for the chance to win a ride valued at just over $18,000.
“An $18,000 car with those odds? That’s a healthier payoff than snagging a ball at a baseball game,” said David Takata, president of the Washington Stealth.
After earning a post-season berth and with a home-floor playoff game on the line for the 8-7 Stealth on Saturday, attendance could move the odds – well, in line with being injured while shaving. Now pushing 1 in 6,585.
“One thing about professional box lacrosse,” Takata said. “Games are fun and exciting. We’re in the playoffs. And someone is going to win a 2013 Chrysler 200.”
And the toilet seat odds? “Our bathrooms are safe,” Takata kidded.
On Saturday, the Stealth are hoping folks in Everett take a shot on lacrosse over more conventional odds found during nine innings of baseball or even the odds-on April favorite -- an IRS audit at 1 in 175.
After all, a Stealth sell-out would still bring somewhat better chances than – wait for it – being born an albino at 1 in 9,000.
Game time on Saturday at Comcast Arena is 6:45 p.m. PDT. For tickets visit www.stealthlax.com or call 877-MY-75-TIX… Washington Stealth… It’s like hockey with balls.
