The Texas Rangers organization sucks

I try to go to at least a few ballgames every summer, and I love the experience. The vast green fields of the Big A or Dodger Stadium, the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, and the families taking out their kids to see our national pastime and enjoying some wholesome time together.

Unfortunately, there are people who show up, get drunk, and spew obscenities in front of the kids. They ruin things for everyone. And they ought to get kicked out. But this is just plain stupid:
A Texas woman attending a baseball game between the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees said she was asked to turn her "Yankees Suck" T-shirt inside out.

Kristen Knapp-Webb of Carrollton said she went to the game Tuesday in Arlington with her husband, Walter, to celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary and she wore the T-shirt, which was an anniversary gift from Walter, The Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

Knapp-Webb said a security guard at the stadium approached her before the game and told her she needed to turn the shirt inside out or leave the ballpark.

"I said, 'But it's not profane. Why do I have to change my shirt?'" Knapp-Webb said. "He said, 'The Texas Rangers organization considers that shirt to be profane.'"
If that's the case, the Texas Rangers organization needs to grow the hell up. People these days say that things "suck," and that's just a fact of life. If they're such a bunch of pantywaists that they can't accept that, well, they can go to heck, goshdarnit.

(I hope that wasn't too harsh. I've never seen a game there, and I wouldn't want to be banned preemptively.)
