Unlike previous World Series winners (say the San Francisco Giants, for example), the Boston Red Sox don’t have far to travel when they meet President Obama, so it’s a much easier meeting to schedule.

Rather than waiting until the middle of the season like many teams are forced to do, the Red Sox will be holding their meet and greet with the President next week and will look damn stylish in the process.

Outfielder Jonny Gomes, who’s known for some of his outrageous clothing choices has ordered custom ‘Stars and Stripes’ blazers and one will be presented to President Obama when he meets with the team on Tuesday.

That’s apparently what they look like – though Obama’s is still yet to be taken out of the packaging.

Not sure if Obama will wear his on stage when the team and he meet for their photo, but that would be pretty hilarious if he did.
