Somehow, the White Sox came to the conclusion that handing out white ponchos with pointed hoods before their game against the Los Angeles Angels last week was a solid idea. I mean, a stadium full of fans wearing white, robe-like ponchos with pointed hoods can't possibly cause any harm, right?

That is correct. No one actually gave a shiat.

Finally getting around to trying to promote a story again that went nowhere a week later is no way to give it legs,  YourBlogSucksmitter.

\seriously, even if the cut was round instead of pointed, the seam could still make this happen

Well, the White Sox know their fan base.

Up to the minute stuff today with an article from three days ago about a game that happened over a week ago.

Doesn't matter what you do in life, at least one single person is going to be offended no matter what. Useless article, its a shame somebody greenlite this crap.

I don't think this was one of those Jezebel-style offended articles.  I think this guy was just a White Sox fan who was amazed at how incredibly stupid they could be.  Kinda like how it's not necessarily racist to use a swastika as a good luck charm, but you might not want to hand out thousands of giant foam swastikas to your fans so they can wish their team good luck.

Now that's a marketing genius. What's next, a free bbq lighter in the shape of a cross?

The KKK took my DH away,
They took him away, away from me!

If you are seeing the KKK there its because you really REALLY want to see the kkk there. This story is retarded

Subby is a dick and the author of the article has a sand filled vagina and shiatty blog that sucks.
 
2014-07-10 10:33:46 PM  
There must be people with no job who sit around all day and try to find racially motivated angles in everything.  I never would have even thought of this.  Maybe if the hoods covered their entire face or something...

Wow, people have gotten verbally assaulted by so many vicariously offended-warriors that they think this is one of those articles.

This is NOT a guy saying "shame!" and wagging his finger and saying he's offended. He's saying "hey, you made my team look like idiots".

You want the White Sox looking like idiots? Allow me to show you what I picked up a month and a half ago at a local antique store:

As my subsequent research into the tickets indicated, there were probably ten different teams that printed off playoff tickets for 1990, one of them being the White Sox... who did not spend a single day of 1990 in sole possession of first. Going into September, they were 6.5 games back on the A's and faded from there.

The tickets now belong to a Cubs fan.

I saw this up on someone's facebook when they were trying to make the same joke, and it fell flat.  If anyone gets fired over this mess, it's post-event premeditated outrage.

The White Sox then got revenge 15 years later when they actually won the World Series, something the Cubs have been unable to do since 1908.

Don't be one of those guys. Reveling in the other team's failures more than your own team's successes is pathetic.

reminded me more of the bomb worshipers in the original Beneath the Planet of Apes movie in the 70s.

Were those real ponchos or Sears ponchos?
 
2014-07-11 10:39:04 AM  
Didn't read the article...did they mention Ozzie and his remarks about Cuba too? Because, if you're going to stretch, you may as well give it all you got.

I'm a Cubs fan. Reveling in the other team's failures is all we have sometimes.
