Who didn't see this coming after last years incident? Is incident even the right category?

I think busch parks are doing this every day of the year.

After looking, yep...they are.

Anheuser-Busch is honored to salute the men and women of our armed forces and their families. Throughout 2010, members of the military and as many as three direct dependents may enter any one of Anheuser-Busch's SeaWorld, Busch Gardens or Sesame Place parks with a single-day complimentary admission.

I don't mean to diss a good deed, but if it were really a sincere honor, wouldn't they do it on Saturday as well? It just feels like the motive is to get more butts in the park (because every military person will bring paying family) on the less popular days of those weekends.

I agree mostly. However, they didn't have to do anything at all. So, it's nice that they did this.
