Prostate cancer is not funny. But, if you can’t laugh at a minor league team giving away foam fingers on Prostate Cancer Awareness Night, you probably need a giant foam digit shoved up your ass.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Phillies Triple-A affiliate that gave away a funeral to a guy with ALS last week, will hand out giant foam fingers to the first 3,500 adults age 18 or over who attend Tuesday night’s game against the Buffalo Bisons at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown at 7:05 p.m. (ET).
The words ‘Go IronPigs’ and ‘Give Prostate Cancer The Finger’ are printed on each foam finger, along with an IronPigs’ logo. The team will also wear sky blue caps during Tuesday’s game with proceeds from an in-game raffle earmarked for the Prostate Cancer Awareness Fund of the Lehigh Valley (Pa.).
Regardless of what you think of the IronPigs’ promotions, you have to give them credit for trying.No one’s being encouraged to bring a Kindle to read at these games.
