Even Hunter Pence Is Enjoying the Fun of the ‘Hating Hunter Pence’ Signs (Tweet)
For every terrible sports story about a contract holdout, verbal or physical abuse, or a DUI, there is a counterpoint that continues to make sports and sports reporting worthwhile. While that may read as really, really dramatic, that’s just how awesome the meme (trend? fad?) of Hunter Pence signs is.
Hunter Pence has become the league’s whipping boy for really mundane, good-natured signs knocking the Giants outfielder, and the scribbled indictments are pretty damn funny, as you can see above.
However, Hunter Pence is a real person with real feelings. How does he feel about this fad?
He seems to be enjoying it:

This is a very nice, good-natured comeback, that at the same time screams, “I’m doing just fine, thanks. Do your worst”—which really means, “I’M SORRY. I CAN’T HEAR YOU! I’M IN A MERCEDES DEALERSHIP!”
Also, was Kohl’s giving out blank signs?
