The generous gift, a tradition Rizzo learned from two former Chicago Cubs teammates, was meant to symbolize his appreciation for his new teammates.
Unfortunately, the good will was short-lived. On Thursday evening, Rizzo’s tweet about the gift was deleted for violating Twitter’s policy on hate speech. The tweet, which began with “Blue boxes for all my boys,” included a picture of the boxes and their contents, which included bottles of wine.
The tweet quickly caught the attention of Cubs fans, who were not pleased with Rizzo’s gesture. After all, the Chicago Cubs organization has a strict policy of not allowing alcohol in the clubhouse and it has been a long-standing tradition for Cubs players to abstain from alcohol.
Rizzo defended his gift, saying it was meant to be a gesture of goodwill and appreciation. He also noted that he learned the tradition from two former Cubs teammates and that it is common among many sports teams.
However, Cubs fans were not convinced. Many believed that Rizzo was sending a message that he was no longer a part of the Cubs culture. Others blamed the tweet for the Yankees’ early season struggles, claiming that Rizzo’s gift of wine was a sign of bad luck.
While Rizzo may not have intended for his tweet to cause any harm, the incident serves as a reminder to all athletes to be mindful of their words and actions on social media. As Rizzo has learned, the internet can be a cruel place and one tweet can have far-reaching consequences.
