Red Sox Go Patriotic for White House Visit

If you were an athlete visiting the White House to celebrate your world championship with the President, what would you wear? If you're a man, you can't go wrong with a suit. But if you're the Boston Red Sox, a traditional suit just won't do — at least according to Jonny Gomes.

The Red Sox are scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama on April 1 to mark their win in the 2013 World Series. And Gomes apparently hatched the idea that his team should go big or go home. So they'll enter the White House wearing the most patriotic outfits, maybe ever:

That's some kind of jacket. Players like Gomes, Dustin Pedroia, and Jon Lester who were born in the US should be cool with the threads. But I wonder what guys like KojiUehara (Japan), Jonathan Herrera (Venezuela), and David Ortiz (Dominican Republic) not born in America will think. Actually, I bet Big Papi would have fun with it…

What do you think of the Red Sox's Old Glory suits? Let us know in the comments section below!
