(And for the record, yes, Memorial Day has become a baseball and BBQ holiday in addition to being a day of remembrance. And that's okay! It doesn't take anything away from the intended meaning of the day. Just be thankful that it hasn't become an orgy of alcohol, fireworks, and violence like a certain other ostensibly important American holiday).
Actually, it sort of does and that's a real shame. A day that is meant to honor the dead shouldn't be spent with drunken idiocy and parties.

The Sox tweet and the actions of others are not offensive, but it does demonstrate that the meaning of the day is lost upon most people.
