We received an email from a Tampa Bay Rays fan who spotted this sign in the stands of last night’s game and it is now making the rounds on sports blogs. Personally I think it is hilarious, but some folks are angered and offended over the sign, which is absolutely ridiculous.
The sign is factual, “The Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray in September of 2006. This happened over 6 years ago, so “too soon” is out the window. Plus it is legitimately funny. Goal number one is accomplished, goal number two is next.
It’s a creative sign. Everybody needs to relax and stop looking for a reason to be offended by everything they see.
