The Boston Red Sox are enjoying St. Patrick’s Day by hosting the St. Louis Cardinals on national television.

Decked out in their green uniforms and using green bases, the Sahx are loving life.

But ESPN? Maybe not so much.

During the game (which Boston won 10-5) a member of the St. Louis Cardinals came up to bat. Everything appeared normal until the batter blocked a portion of the advertisement sign behind home plate.

I didn’t watch the game, so it’s a little difficult to tell if the sign was actually a green-screen/computer enhanced adage or if it was a true flip advertisement, but regardless a problem arose when the batter stepped in.

A giant problem, if you catch my drift. A problem that Sir-Mix-A-Lot would be a giant fan of.

The advertisement was blocked by the batter which then read ‘GIANT ASS’. Even more hilarious? Tony Kornheiser of ESPN’s own ‘PTI’ spotted the hilarious mistake which likely has ESPN cringing.
