Minor League Hockey Team Puts Lincoln On Jersey Next To Bud Light Patch

The Bakersfield Condors, an East Coast Hockey League team in central California, are no strangers to pushing the envelope promotion-wise: In 2011 they held “Charlie Sheen Night”, and in 2012 offered Justin Bieber an entry-level contract.

Now, this: the Condors will commemorate Sunday’s 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address with these special game jerseys.

Notice the stove pipe hat on the condor logo. And also notice the Bud Light logo in close proximity to Mr. Lincoln … just as he imagined his legacy would be 150 years ago. Corporate America always finds a way to cheapen a noble sentiment.

Meanwhile, in vaguely racist minor league hockey news: whaaaa?

    Lincoln was a Democrat.

    SportsGrid always loves to find the bad in everything. How about you stop being butthurt about everything “corporate America” (we already know you hate America) and a tiny sponsors logo and appreciate a really awesome jersey.

    Check out the plaque at Northeastern Illinois University.

    I hope the other team wears their alternate slave jerseys.
