File under "gloriously inevitable": The Richmond Flying Squirrels, Double-A affiliate of the Giants, on Aug. 1 will hold "Salute to Scandal Night," in which fans, in honor of disgraced NYC mayoral candidate and board-certified dirty birdy Anthony Weiner, will be invited to text pictures of their weiners. In this instance -- and the distinction is horribly necessary -- "weiners" refers to the edible encased meat sold under the name "hot dog" at ballparks across this fair and forgiving land.
"Scandal night is meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek night and what hotter of a scandal right now than Anthony Weiner," Flying Squirrels Vice President and COO Todd "Parney" Parnell told MiLB.com. "His scandal just couldn't have come at a better time in regards to the Flying Squirrels promotional calendar."

I see no conceivable way this could go off the rails. None.
