I was initially hesitant to post on this, even though it's been floating around since last night, but any opportunity to make fun of LSU I've decided has to be taken advantage of.
As you can see in the picture above you, LSU baseball fans decided to come up with an interesting sign during their Super Regional showdown against UC-Irvine. I think "Go Tigers" might have been more appropriate, but that's just me.
As With Leather points out:
The Civil War only killed 600,000 Americans. Why couldn't the Union and Confederacy put another 1.2 million lives on the line for the fans? How can you disagree with that?No one could possibly disagree with that. You just might also remember that slavery was a big part of the Civil War, so yeah, the sign is bad on multiple levels.
By the way, LSU made the College World Series, so you can expect to see a few more of these gems in the coming days. 3/1 odds one of the future signs uses the term "tar baby."
By the way, I don't want to call all LSU fans racist. I mean, that would be unfair. But then I remembered that in addition to this rather droll sign, there was also a video of a few LSU fans down at the National Championship football game from earlier this year. Let's let them give you a taste of what LSU fans are really like (very NSFW everyone).
Yes sir, I know I'd be proud to be an LSU student or alum. And by proud, I mean ashamed beyond belief for the rest of my life.
