The Lowell Spinners planned on giving out pink potholders to the first 250 ladies who attended Thursday night’s game against the State College Spikes, as a part of the Red Sox affiliate’s “Politically Incorrect Night” promotion. Unfortunately, no women showed up. The lack of females was not a result of the ladies being too busy burning their bras in protest of the promotion, or because they were stuck in the kitchen.
Another woman with a little bit of power seemed to be offended by the antics of the Class A team and was able to step in and have the game canceled. Mother Nature dumped precipitation all over New England last night, causing the game and the promotion to be rained out.
Along with the pink potholders, SPORTS COLUMN informs us that the promotion also was to include:
- `Men only’ entrances to the game because men are obviously the superior creatures
- Designated napping areas around the park available for all senior citizens to `rest their eyes’ because old people get tired quickly
- Fans are encouraged to drive to the game separately and will be given complimentary gas cards in an effort to use up as much gas as possible
- Cars will be needlessly driven between innings as a tribute to gas guzzlers
Mother Nature is likely not the only gal who does not approve of this promotion - The Eco-Friendly Eagles Cheerleaders would probably have a thing or two to say about all this waste of gas. Let’s take a look at one.
She probably makes a mean sandwich.
The Spinners also planned a Politically Correct night for Wednesday, in which “gender neutral terms will be used, ie: `first baseperson’ instead of `first baseman’, `batperson’ instead of `batboy.’” That game was also rained out.
