Red Sox get a patriotic gift

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jonny Gomes purchased stars and stripes sport coats for all his teammates and gave them out today.

(No, the Red Sox will not be wearing them to the White House).

A few of the players tried them on and looked like the Ryder Cup team for a while. David Ortiz’s was too big but he walked around with it on. Big Papi looked a little like Apollo Creed.

The company that makes the product, Loudmouth Golf, offered Gomes one for free. But he worked a group deal.
