Promo gone bad? 

Post#1 » by GameTime_3 » Sat Aug 1, 2009 6:19 am

Did the Marlins go to far?
The Marlins had a laugh at the Cubs' expense, too. As part of a promotion between innings, a goat was brought on the field -- a reference to the Billy-goat curse that has hounded the Cubs since 1945.
"Tasteless," Chicago manager Lou Piniella said. "Every time we come here, they do some kind of gimmick. I don't know who thinks them up. I mean, when they come to Chicago, we don't fry marlin.

I'm all for a stadium full of people applauding a goat.

Lou needs to shut the hell up, we're making up for our lackluster fans, it sucks when half the stadium is rooting for the other team in most games.
