CARDINALS GOT SOME SPLAININ’ TO DO
You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
ST. LOUIS – An Illinois woman is suing the St. Louis Cardinals for allowing a text message that falsely suggested her daughter has a sexually transmitted disease to be posted on the ballpark’s message board during a game.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in St. Louis Circuit Court, claims the 17-year-old girl was so traumatized by the message last year during a class trip that she stayed out of school the rest of the semester and took her finals in a school office to avoid ridicule.
A girl schoolmate called the ballpark’s message board and, using the daughter’s name, texted, “(A.B.) has an STD! Eww!”
Workers for or agents of the Cardinals “approved the message to go on the board,” and it was posted during the game that drew a turnout of more than 48,000, the lawsuit claims.
Somebody is looking for a new job right about now.
Other text messages that did not get approved at Busch:
“Pujols–stinky name, great player!”
“jeannie–even though we’re gettin divorsed we’ll always be cousins.”
“Kip Wells? Jocketty are you serious?”
“Poo-holes…it just sounds so funny!”
