From Sportress of Blogitude:
During ESPN’s broadcast of a high school football game between Alabama schools Spanish Fort and Daphne, fans of Spanish Fort were spotted waving a banner. Unfortunately for anyone watching, the banner contained a homophobic insult directed at the team colors of the school’s opponent.
Making light of Daphne’s purple uniforms, Spanish Fort fans held up a banner that read: “Purple? Man, that’s GAY.”
Classy. It didn’t end there, either. Folks supporting Spanish Fort also had another sign at the game, making light of the fact that the rival school’s name, Daphne, also happens to be used a girl’s name:
Wow. Total burn. Well played, everyone.
Of course, not really well played at all. The lesson here should be: don’t bring homophobic signs to high school football games, people.
