Say hello to the Yankees of the West Coast: the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels sent security guards to make a fan sitting behind home plate remove the paper bag he was wearing over his head during Tuesday’s game against the Cubs in Anaheim.
The fan, Henry Bouldin, said he decided to wear the bag after the high-payroll Angels were swept by the Astros last weekend. It read: “$127 million + all I got was this bag. Go Angels?”
“Security just showed up out of nowhere,” Bouldin said Wednesday. “They said you can’t wear anything over your head.”
Nice, eh? Team signs aging Pujols and whacked-out Hamilton to ridiculous deals, and then it gets dickhurt when the fans call out the embarrassing results.
The Angels claim it is team policy to not allow any fans to wear anything that keeps them from “making a facial identification if necessary.” Of course, it didn’t have anything to do with Bouldin sitting behind home plate. Right. Such bullshit.
For good measure, the Angels lost to the Cubs, 8-6 in 10 innings.
