From the “It seemed like a good idea at the time” department

Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox on July 3, 2014

During a rainy game last week, the Chicago White Sox tried to do the right thing by fans at US Cellular Field (I still want to call it Comiskey Park, no matter what!) and gave away white rain ponchos.

Rain, ponchos, sounds good, right?

It didn’t come out that way. Television images of fans at the game with the ponchos on, looked for all the world like a modern-day Ku Klux Klan rally.

I’m sure somebody in the front office was left slapping their heads and giving the Homer Simpson “D’oh!”
