But the Jacksonville Suns may have crossed the line a bit with their “St. Patrick’s Day Eight Months Away” Night, scheduled for this Friday. Not only does this encourage waaaaaayyy too much alcohol consumption (though I suppose that’s the point), there’s this bit of “entertainment” after the game:
The first 3,000 fans will receive green baseball caps identical to those being worn by Suns players on the field! Stick around for a post-game Leprechaun World Wrestling Championship on the field!
Apparently, the Suns will be bringing in a group of little people, dress them up as leprechauns, and let them duke it out in the ring in front of drunk jackasses. Yeah.
To top it off, the club will also be having their “Friday Family Fireworks” in between the game and the wrestling match! So down in Jacksonville, a father that’s way too drunk to drive + the exploitation of little people for moronic enjoyment = good wholesome family fun.
America. Love it or leave it.
P.S. It should also be noted that the Suns are currently running a big contest where all the winner seems to get are four free tickets and food to an upcoming game plus something called a “Bill Engvall Show prize pack“. So this should give you a sense as to the demographic we’re dealing with here.And yes, I am an “east coast elitist”. Recognize.
