At Ease, Tough Guy

So I saw the highlights from a recent military tribute-type day at Fenway. They had five troops on the scoreboard, giving a message from Iraq. They had a Red Sox flag behind them, and talked about how they keep track of the team over there.


But one of the five was holding his gun at the ready across his chest.

Can you put the goddamn gun down for one second? Were they under attack while recording the spot? Does he think we'll feel more "protected" that way? Aren't we at the point yet where most of us would feel safer if we weren't occupying countries that didn't do anything to us in the first place?

Red Sox occupy Canada, 7:07 PM. Youk's back.
