The Rays' plane got stranded on the tarmac in Cuba and most of them hadn't showered

Oh, the humanity.

During President Barack Obama's visit to Cuba, the Tampa Bay Rays played a game against Cuba's national team.

But they got more than they bargained for on their way home.

No big deal, just a little nap before hitting the skies. But wait, there's more.


Oh no. Nothing like the smell of a freshly opened bag of potato chips, combined with jet fuel and the odor of 40 unwashed bodies after they've played nine innings of baseball.

But, after what could only have been an olfactory roller coaster, the Rays made it safely back to their showers.

Thank you for flying with us.
