Minor League Baseball Team Holding “Florida Man Night,” In Honor of All The Crazy Headlines That Come Out Of Florida

Graphical user interface

You gotta love Florida.

Florida is directly responsible for almost 90% of every single bizarre news story we’ve ever had the privilege of sharing with you guys. They all start pretty much the same way… “Florida man,” then insert some sort of meth-induced, redneck tomfoolery that even Stephen King couldn’t dream up, followed by an all but certain arrest.

In honor of this timeless American tradition, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (yes, that’s really the name of the Marlins’ AA team) is holding “Florida Man Night,” where the team will break a weird Florida law every single inning.

July 26th, that stadium is going to be packed.

And, don’t worry, lawyers will be on the scene. No, not medical professionals… lawyers.

And, this guy will be there.

Lane Pittman made headlines for standing in the middle of Hurricane Matthew, shirtless and shoeless, waving an American flag while Slayer’s “Raining Blood” played. An all-time great Florida power move, however, Lane was also arrested for playing the national anthem too loud during the 4th of July.

A true American hero.
