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.
