A few months, back I heard a rumor that the promotions/marketing team over at the Fresno Grizzlies was angling to get a #wackramento billboard up in Sacramento.

Well, it happened.

The Grizzlies have been using the Wackrameno hash tag as a dig at the Sacramento Rivercats, along with the parody logo (featuring Grumpy cat).

The whole thing is utterly stupid and rather genius and putting it on a billboard in Sacramento is a ballsy move that gets to the heart of this year’s Grizzlies organization: They’re going all out and they just don’t care! And it’s awesome.

Sacramento meanwhile, isn’t getting with it, as evidence in this clip from news station KCRA.

    This would have been a good idea 5+ years ago to establish a rivalry with Sacramento. Now that the Giants have moved their affiliate though, it just sounds like petty jealousy by a jilted lover.

      Whatever. It’s not trying to start a rivalry between our MLB affiliates, it’s not even about that. It’s stirring up a rivalry between the only two AAA teams in the valley, based solely on that. It’s fun, don’t over-think it!
