Of course this was Jonny Gomes' idea. The Boston Red Sox plan to wear American Flag blazers when meeting President Barack Obama next week, which is Gomes best idea since he decided to get a brotastic tattoo marking the team's World Series win.
Never stop being you, Jonny Gomes.
The Red Sox say they're even bringing one for Obama. These cost $395, by the way.
Cue the outrage machine. Surely some people will think this disrespects the flag.
But, the opposite seems to be true too. Wearing an American flag sports coat to the White House is about the most American thing you can do. Well, besides eating apple pie while at the White House in said American flag sports coat.
