Coachella is a time and place for all sorts of desert wackiness to go down—especially with Snoop Dogg in attendance (just check out his smoke-able book that was released at the fest).  That said, one moment during the headlining Dr. Dre and Snoop performance on Sunday night crossed them realm from wacky and dovetailed into just plain strange, if not tacky and/or kind of offensive.

Last Sunday night’s match-up at Boston’s Fenway Park between hometown heroes the Red Sox and bitter rivals the New York Yankees featured a musical invasion of sorts, with appearances by Dr. Dre, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, and God… er, Neil Diamond (don’t even make a joke—I will gladly knife-fight anyone who makes fun of the Diamond), with both Tyler...
