This weekend we went to the Cubs game. It was U's first game, and he seemed to have a pretty good times. He likes to clap, and the Cubs won 13-1, so he had lots of opportunties. That was fun.
However, the best thing we saw was in the stands. There was a young woman of a certain type (think Obama girl, the Packer Bikini Girls, and similar) wearing a t-shirt with the logo below on it.

Seriously. The shirt is supposed to be in "honor" of Fukudome (it has his name and number on the back). Obviously the rascist content seriously undercuts any "honor." However, the irony of a kind of, well, trampy woman, wearing a shirt that says "Horry Kow" on it was fantastic. I'm not sure that she understood why people were smiling so much when she walked by.

Oh, and she was Asian, which added a layer of irony I could not even have hoped for.

Your failure to note that the victory was courtesy of a pathetic little league team from Pittsburgh, or that it was the Cubbies' sixth successive such demolition of the Pirates, was appreciated.

Please, Please tell me that the "Horry Kow" was wearing mirrored sunglasses, hot pants and platform boots.
