Not on purpose but it happened.

Atlanta put some pyrotechnics on its big screen in center field, but neglected to remember that fireworks are not only pretty, but very hot, too. A spokesperson for the Braves confirmed to the local NBC affiliate that the mishap really did happen during the team's home opener Tuesday, adding that the flag is made of flame-retardant material so it didn't burn for too long.

Mistakes happen.

ATLANTA, Ga-- The Braves are reworking their pyrotechnics after a mishap at the home opener caught an American flag on fire.
One of the pyrotechnics flew at the flag and lit it on fire.

Just thought it was a little silly. Home opener and all.

Its because the Chinese don't use flame retardant on their textiles.

Accidents happen. Life goes on.

Not a big deal.

But all the same. . . . .

In ancient times .......... this would be an Omen!

Absolutely typical MSM. They have to bend the truth. Just make it sound as if it may have been deliberately lit, but not enough to get sued by the braves.

The bastards in the MSM think this is 'clever.' Well it is not, it sucks!
