White Sox Give Away White Ponchos, Inadvertently Turn Stadium Into A Klan Rally

I always find it hilarious when a large organization somehow approves an inevitably disastrous idea. It makes you wonder how, somewhere along the line, not one person raised his hand and questioned the decision. Maybe these people were too scared to question their corporate executives. Maybe they knew good and well how terrible the idea was, but they enjoy seeing the media eat their dickhead bosses alive. It’s always a crapshoot as to how these ideas make it from paper to production, but when they do, it’s a glorious occasion.

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?

Sure enough, it began to rain during the game. The fans put on their ponchos and turned the stadium into quite the hilarious spectacle.

If you haven’t quite figured out where this is going, here are some pictures to help you out.


Someone on the White Sox’s promotional staff, without a doubt, fucked it hard.

Thanks for the screw up, boys. Your failure helped make my Monday morning slightly less miserable.

    I’m sure the White Sox organization will have to send out thousands of apologies to people who get butt hurt over this. This nation is becoming so pussified.

    My question is why do people get so bent out of shape over stupid shit and automatically revert back to the race card and assume everything is intended to be racist… I’m sure some people would find a way to be offended regardless of what color the ponchos were.

      Speaking of bent out of shape, TFM Staff, why are you deleting people’s comments (my own included) that feature gifs of the KKK and other “borderline offensive” material. My gif was of the South Park KKK meeting where they played “What’s Under the Robe?” and you guys deleted it right away. This site is gradually becoming more liberal and its beginning to show.

      I don’t think anyone is getting bent out of shape because this was clearly an accident. It’s more of wondering how not one person involved didn’t raise his or hand and point out, “Hey boss, we kind of look like we’re holding a clan rally.”
