What were they thinking? Seriously, what was Major League Baseball thinking when they paid for and ran this commercial promoting, and justifying, violence against a rival team's fan? After the probably fatal attack on a San Francisco Giants fan by Los Angeles Dodgers fans you'd think they'd say, "maybe this would be in seriously bad taste". Evidently, not! I guess showing a violent Yankees fan is okay so long as it's against a Red Sox fan because of the rivalry history between the two teams.
I'll bet the MLB marketing execs that okay-ed this ad have also videotaped their children in fights while encouraging them along at the same time! It wouldn't surprise me!
This is the ad that's on YouTube. I saw the ad on the Cartoon Network around 4:30 in the morning at work and was stunned when I saw it. You be the judge.
