A new low in dumb-ass mayoral sports wheedling

The mayor of Houston, whose name, I believe, is Chappy Squidfrotter, has declared tomorrow in his city to be "No Sox Day". Residents are encouraged to rock mad 'Stros gear -- so far, so good -- but (lameness ahoy!), not to wear socks, in order to, I dunno, shame the Chicago White Sox by showing that the citizens will forego warmth, comfort and safety in order to show their disapproval for the opposition.

Not only does this represent a zenith of dipshit civic pride activities, but how are my fellow Chicagoans supposed to answer this? Is Mayor Daley supposed to ban all municipal space flights for the duration of the series? Does the Adler Planetarium get shut down for a week? Should we forego the drinking of Tang until our team acheives victory?

Lame, Mayor Squidfrotter. Lame.
