Everything that doesn’t have to do with Alex Rodriguez, that is.
The Charlotte Stone Crabs, Single-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, had a hilarious promotion planned for Friday’s game against the Tampa Yankees. Ladies and gentlemen, we present “Juice Box Night.” [tweet https://twitter.com/JoshVitale/status/601786810998599680 align=’center’]
Hey, it’s just a juice box, right? There’s no way it’s a reference to a certain Yankees designated hitter’s steroid use, right? Well, here’s the caption on the box:
“The Sports Drink. 100% Juiced. “Side Affects include: tainted records, inflated ego, omission from the Hall of Fame, and more!”
OK, that’s definitely about A-Rod, and that’s definitely pretty funny. Apparently someone in New York wasn’t too amused, though, as the Stone Crabs canceled the event before the game — a 4-1 Charlotte win — and even issued an apology.

Our advice? Just think outside the box.
