Where’s Theo Epstein?

Recently Yahoo ran an article about Theo Epstein. Not about his Red Sox rather about his weird disguise at a recent Pearl Jam concert. Epstein was spotted at the concert sporting a fake mustache (picture shown is from Yahoo.com).

This is not the first time Epstein has done this. “At any rate, as this old Sports Illustrated article notes, Epstein has attempted to go incognito at Pearl Jam concerts before. In 2006, he attended a show ‘wearing a fake mullet wig, glasses, a blue hat and a hooded sweatshirt so that he wouldn’t be recognized.’ Epstein then revealed his identity to the crowd after joining the band onstage to play Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World.’”

Not sure why Epstein feels compelled to hide himself only to reveal himself to the large crowd on stage. Maybe he is trying to blend in and doesn’t want to deal with random annoying Red Sawx or even heckling Yankee fans. Regardless, I thought it was funny and odd so I am posting it. Next time you are at a concert look around to see if you can find Mark Cuban with a fu man chu orLarry Brown with mutton chops.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
