The Lake Elsinore Storm Professional Baseball Team today officially invited actor Charlie Sheen to participate in a different kind of rehab, one that will recognize the former on-screen pitcher and star of "Major League" with a "Charlie Sheen-co de Mayo" promotion. This special occasion, held on May 5, 2011, is fittingly a Thirsty Thursday promotion featuring one dollar beers and Coke products. On this festive night, fans can expect a full slate of fun to highlight the antics of the beloved star of "Two and a Half Men."
Mr. Sheen, his entourage and "goddesses" are formally invited to attend this night of baseball, Charlie and fun. Pregame plans for the Charlie Sheen-co de Mayo Night include a limited edition bobblehead immortalizing the Hollywood icon, a "Wild Thing" glasses giveaway as well as retiring, for the season, his number 99 from his legendary role as closer Ricky Vaughn. Other promotional elements will include an in-game taco eating contest, a Rehab-style party on the exclusive Tiki Terrace featuring #tigerblood cocktails and a two-for-one Ho Hos special.
"As with any rehab assignment, we're here to help Charlie embrace that '#winning' feeling," said Chris Jones, Vice President/General Manager of the Storm. "Also, as a show of support, we welcome all current cast and crew members to the ballpark that night for only two and a half cents."
Hahahahahahah, I don't think I can miss this, it's only an hours drive away.
the two for one Ho-Ho's kills me every time i think about it.
Charlie Sheen managed to upset a group he probably never thought of -- witches -- after one of his notorious tirades last week.
In a week in which the embattled actor described himself as having "tiger blood" and other apparently super-human aspects usually found in the pages of comic books, the star described himself as a "Vatican assassin warlock" during a radio show.
The description evidently did not sit well with the witch community in Salem, Mass.
Christian Day, a practicing warlock -- or male witch -- and member of Salem's Coven of the Raven Moon, said he was "angered" over the statement because it's a "blatant offense against our ways and teachings."
Day held a ritual Sunday with other members of the witch community to send positive spirits in Sheen's direction.
Day said Sheen was "reckless" by singling out the group and should apologize.
Most offensive of all, said Day, was Sheen's mischaracterization of warlocks. Day said Sheen set the impression that a warlock is some kind of raging, warlike individual "out for blood."
"Warlocks are peaceful and enlightened," he said. "They have the ability to communicate with the dead and learn from it. They have nothing to do with aggressiveness and anger."
The witch community in Salem, Mass. has about 5,000 members, said Day.
Witchcraft is often tangled up with Halloween and generally mocked by the public.
One of the main obstacles in practicing the religion is debunking myths that may be more in line with a Halloween movie than a legally-represented religion that has gravestones in Arlington Cemetery, Day said.
