White Sox Unintentionally Hold KKK Night

When the late Bill Veeck ran the Chicago White Sox he was responsible for a number of famous promotions. The "exploding scoreboard" was his idea. He also put names on jerseys, had Harry Caray sing Take Me Out the the Ballgame live and was the mind behind his son Mike dreamed up Disco Demolition Night, which of course ended very badly.

He thought of almost everything. Almost.

Last night the White Sox apparently gave away white ponchos to fans who braved the elements in the aftermath of storms that have rocked Chicago this week, and the resulting images are, well, look at the one above.

White Sox pitchers combined for 12 strikeouts last night, which comes out to four KKKs if those fans behind home plate had chosen to hold up those little K cards. 

Maybe go with black ponchos next time. Or gray. Or clear. Or literally any other color.
