If I recall, this is the second time this season a game was interrupted due to fans protesting using the green monster as a canvas.
Fans at Fenway Park during tonight’s Red Sox vs. A’s game held a sign that read “Racism Is As American As Baseball”:

The fans unraveled the sign and displayed it on the Green Monster in left field after the top of the fourth inning. Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com noted the sign “hung for a couple of minutes” before security were able to pull it down.
First of all, the sign makes zero F’ing sense. It can be read both ways, is it pro or anti racism? I’m still mind f*cked over it. Just say “everyone is racist” or something, why the bizarre message? Make some more sense, will you. You had one job and you failed miserably.
Here’s what I also don’t get, I’m all for you being able to protest, but why the heck spend $300-$400 on a green Monster seat only to get yourself thrown out, especially in the 4th inning. At least wait until Sweet Caroline before you get yourself thrown out. I don’t get the thought process. “$400 tickets, check. Tons of cash for parking and concessions, check. Stupid unreadable banner that can only be seen with a telephoto lens that’ll get us tossed out, checkkkk.” Boston sports radio is going to be lit tomorrow…
