I’m about to criticize something that I think is neat. Why? Because it’s absolutely wrong.
MLB and the Minnesota Twins have teamed up to produce a series of commemorative statues for this year’s MLB All-Star Game with the Peanuts gang.
It’s a natural, right? Charlie Brown and the gang spent a lot of time on the baseball diamond.
Unfortunately, they depict Charlie Brown and his friends in Minnesota Twins gear.
This is where the problem comes in.
Charlie Brown was a Giants fan. In the 60s he talked about Willie Mays and Willie McCovey. He lived and died by the Giants.
Charlie Brown wouldn’t wear Twins gear.
I understand the thinking of MLB. Charles Schulz hailed from Minnesota, so it makes sense to honor his work.
But they do so in a way that is wrong and goes against the very text of the work they honor.
