Mexican-less Giants Are Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

In serious style -- they're having margaritas in the clubhouse before the game, along with chips and bean dip. Pedro Feliz will be on the tacos, Bengie Molina's making the guacamole, Zito's got the horchata, and Lamar's bringing the pinata. OK, that's probably not happening -- except for the margaritas -- but the Giants will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo today. Check it out:
The Giants will wear their "Gigantes" jersey today as part of their Cinco de Mayo and Mexican Heritage Night festivities.

Evidently convinced that Mexicans and Mexican-Americans still use the Aztec calendar, the Giants will give a Giants-Aztec calendar T-shirt to those who purchase a Mexican Heritage Night ticket.

Sounds good to me, I'm soooo there. But apparently the Giants are somewhat culturally insensitive.
The first 20,000 fans to enter the park will receive a poster of Omar Vizquel, who is Venezuelan.
Last time I checked, Cinco de Mayo was a Mexican holiday. But who am I to get nit-picky here? I guess you gotta make do with what you got. Details, schmeetails. Next thing you know, the Red Sox will honor Dice K with Chinese Cultural Night. Man, I would love to know who plans these events.
