White Sox fans troll Royals for hypocritical bat flip tweet

White Sox fans troll Royals for hypocritical bat flip tweet

On Wednesday, White Sox short stop Tim Anderson hit a home run and had an all-time bat flip in response. It was something that fired up the White Sox fanbase and angered their opponents, the Kansas City Royals.

As a result, Anderson was hit by a pitch in his nex at-bat and a big brouhaha followed which led to some ejections, including Anderson who really didn't do anything to warrant it.

Professional athletes debated it on Twitter, but White Sox fans took to the social media platform to expose the hypocrisy from the Royals when they found this tweet from May of last season.

That's right, the Royals glorifying a bat flip on social media. White Sox fans responded in droves.

A lot if it involved hilarious White Sox GIFs, like Tim Anderson's slow clap.

Or White Sox players staring...

Or an eye roll...

Some went direct, calling it for what they believed it to be.

And as our own Chuck Garfien pointed out, there is a bit of irony surrounding this bat flip from last season.

In conclusion, let baseball be fun and let people flip bats. And if you don't want people to bat flip and celebrate home runs, get them out.

Bears will play first NFL game in new Tottenham Hotspur stadium

The Bears confirmed reports that their London clash with the Oakland Raiders will occur in Week 5 of the 2019 NFL regular season. What's a new bit of information is that this game will take place at the newly opened Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the first NFL game hosted at the stadium.

Typically NFL games have been played at Wembley Stadium, which is the home to the England National Team. Tottenham themselves won't have even played a full season in the new stadium, holding their first game two weeks ago.

The Raiders were slated to play the Seattle Seahawks at his stadium in October of the 2018 seaosn, but construction delays moved the game to Wembley.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium seats about 62,000 fans, considerably less than  Wembley.

And the bonus, Chicago is undefeated in London, albeit with a record of 1-0. The Bears' last trip to London was in October of 2011, defeating the Buccaneers 24-18 at Wembley Stadium.
