The countdown is on for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies!! I'm not talking about opening night, which is which is Thursday, April 5th at NYSEG Stadium against the Portland Sea Dogs. I'm talking about the release of the Rumble Ponies promotion schedule.

I don't know everything happening this season, but I can tell you this, the Ponies will have their first giveaway of the season on April 5th with fleece blankets for the first 1,000 fans. April 5th is also Thirsty Thursday courtesy of all of us here at the Hawk.

If you are an "I want it now" kind of person, then maybe I can tide you over for a little while with these Fireworks Nights dates to jot down in your calendar. But remember as the saying goes, "good things come to those who wait" and you're going to have to wait until March 1st to find out the rest of the Rumble Ponies promotional schedule.

I've been asked if I know whether or not Tim Tebow is coming to Binghamton this season and all I can say is that there are a lot of rumors that he might be, but we won't know for sure until about week before the season begins.
