The Giants will wear their "Gigantes" jersey today as part of their Cinco de Mayo and Mexican Heritage Night festivities.Sounds good to me, I'm soooo there. But apparently the Giants are somewhat culturally insensitive.
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.
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.
