De Blasio’s fix to NYC’s low blood supply: Krispy Kreme, Jets tickets

December 1, 2020

This is an incentive?

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday made a desperate plea to New Yorkers to donate blood, dangling as a raffle prize a couple of tickets to a future football game — by the current 0-11 Jets.

Hizzoner then followed up the less-than-attractive offer with another odd prize, given the important health issue at stake — a year’s worth of calorie- and sugar-laden Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

“That is not approved by the Health Department — but the rest of us would really like that,’’ de Blasio joked to reporters about the d’oh nutty giveaway at a press conference.

Of the free Jets tickets, the mayor acknowledged the prize might not be exactly among the most coveted of the bunch.

“I’m talking about real good prizes — not withstanding the travails of the New York Jets season,’’ he said. “You could get Coaches Club tickets to the home opener for the Jets next year.”
