The Nosebleeds OLD:
But hey, that's just my opinion. Apparently this guy had other ideas, as he elected to turn down the simple "long sleeve t-shirt idea" and rob a Norton, Rhode Island bank with his forearm Red Sox tattoo completely exposed.
From the Sun-Chronicle's report
The man passed a note to the teller at Mansfield Bank on West Main Street near Norton Middle School, demanding money and indicating he had a weapon, police said. He also gave the teller a plastic bag for the money. No weapon was shown, police said.
"This is a robbery, I have a weapon, No Dye packs," the suspect said, according to information published on the law enforcement websites Rhode Island Most Wanted and Mass Most Wanted.
The suspect demanded the note back, then fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash without showing a weapon, police said.
The getaway driver involved in the heist has already been arrested and arraigned but the note-passer and obvious Red Sox fan in the picture above has yet to be caught.
He should probably enjoy that stolen money while it lasts though, because something tells me his decision to leave his Sox pride exposed will lead to his eventual downfall. Hopefully they'll let him catch some games in the slammer.

Things have not gone as planned for the Boston Red Sox, but down on the farm with the club's Triple-A Pawtucket, there are plenty of things to be pleased about. Perhaps most interestingly has been the work of veteran right-hander Aaron Cook, who was sent down at the end of the spring training. With the big club's pitching all over the place, Cook has been a rock for the PawSox...

Things don't sound very good for Carl Crawford. The Red Sox outfielder returned to Boston to get his ailing left elbow checked out by team doctors, and that might not be his only stop, either. CSNNE.com's Sean McAdam reports via Twitter that Crawford will also meet with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion in the near future. The date of that meeting is unknown at this...

Must say we don’t get too many bank robberies where a superfan goes with a tattoo and corresponding baseball hat. But that’s exactly what Red Sox fan pulled off in this robbery. Hispanic bro just doesn’t care. Police can use that tattoo to identify him all they want. Gotta catch him first. Look, wearing long sleeves is the obvious play here. Maybe it’s a henna. Would this...

Carl Crawford may miss significantly more time than first reported. He is headed to see Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinon on his elbow. Chances of seeing Crawford in the lineup anytime soon seem unlikely.
Leave him in the starting rotation. Yup, that’s what I think. Here’s the case for why he shouldn’t be moved back to the bullpen:
Yeah, the Red Sox relievers have an MLB worst 8.06 combined ERA. But Boston’s starters also have the second worst ERA in baseball at 5.81, so at the moment it’s kind of lose lose either way. But we’re only 15 games in, and 12 of those...
Kevin Youkilis can now add "husband" to the list of words describing the Boston third baseman. Youkilis and Julie Brady, the sister of Tom Brady, have been engaged for a bit, but the couple decided to skip the pomp and wedding bells for a private ceremony at their home in Weston on Thursday, the Boston Herald reports. It's not as if Youkilis tied the knot and then ran...
