So, there was a report this morning that the Atlanta Braves accidentally (hopefully) set an American flag on fire during pre-game fireworks before their home opener yesterday.
Barves set an American Flag on fire last night with their fireworks. http://t.co/noV9sga5hV

I’ll leave it to you to figure out whether that’s an appropriate display of patriotism.
Now, I wasn’t there to confirm whether this is true, but a quick search of Twitter shows that more than a few people were disturbed by something last night. A roundup:

Pre game fireworks burning holes in the American flag. Hopefully not an omen for the season. #Braves

I guess the braves shooting a firework into the American flag and burning a hole in it was a bad omen
