Default White Sox apologize for borderline insensitive tweets

Before the game, their Twitter handle posted this:
Quote:
Memorial Day means BBQ and baseball! #WhiteSox are in action vs the Indians at 1:10 CT on @CSNChicago and @MLBTV: http://atmlb.com/1w8K0Mg
Some were offended by the part in bold, so they were prompted to respond with these:

Quote:
(1/3) We are sorry that one of our posts from earlier today made it seem as if we were insensitive to the true meaning of Memorial Day.
Quote:
(2/3) That was not our intent, and we hope fans know how much we appreciate the sacrifices our veterans
Quote:
(3/3) and service men and women have made to preserve our freedoms.
Guess the lesson here is think long and hard when making light of something that means so much more to a lot of people.
