The Boston Red Sox will celebrate their World Series victory with a visit to the White House on Tuesday and, well, let’s just say it could be a loud trip.
Thanks (if that’s the right word) to Jonny Gomes, each member of the team has a stars-and-stripes sport coat to wear for the occasion.
It might be a risky move by the Red Sox to actually wear these to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, given that some may deem them inappropriate. Of course, the jackets aren’t actually made of flags. That is prohibited by the U.S. Flag Code, which states that the flag shall not be worn as “an article of personal adornment, a design of items of temporary use and item of clothing.”
And, yes, they have one for the president, too.
