Baseball team takes a jab at Britney…

NEWARK, N.J. – The Newark Bears, a minor league baseball team, are hosting a Britney Spears Baby Safety Night to spread the message about keeping babies safe in vehicles.

The event is named for the 24-year-old pop star who drew criticism when she was photographed with her baby son, Sean Preston, sitting on her lap as she drove, and later, in a car seat facing forward rather than facing backward, which some safety regulations say is best.

Fans attending the Aug. 4 game will receive information on baby car seat safety and a chance to win a free car seat from the American Automobile Association.

Those who dress as a baby, bring a baby toy or bring their baby – a child under the age of 4 – get in free.

Spears has defended her parenting skills and has cautioned against judging her. “I did it with my dad. I’d sit on his lap and I drive,” the Louisiana native has said of the February incident. “We’re country.”

No, Britney, you’re a dumbass. Then again, we all knew that.
