The journal of a Kentucky culture vulture
If you are not a SportsCenter watcher or just missed this last night, I thought I’d share Jeremy Schaap’s great look back at the Chicago White Sox’s infamous “Disco Demolition” promotion between games of a double headder on July 12, 2009. In short, a radio station sponsored an event where they blew up disco albums on the field between White Sox-Detroit Tigers games. Game 2 never happened because things got a little out of control — just image combining alcohol, low security, and a fervent hatred for a music genre. Filling out the story are great photos, video and comments.
