Theo's a Better Man for Not Watching that Bomb in the Bronx Monday

Looks like Sox GM Theo Epstein attended Monday night's Pearl Jam concert after all. While the Sox were blowing a game in the Bronx, Theo apparently did attend the sold-out show at TD Garden. As we've seen with the gorilla costume, this is not the first time the Red Sox GM has shown he's a master of disguise.
And according to a 2006 Sports Illustrated article, Epstein has a thing for hiding his identity at Pearl Jam shows in particular: "...and last week he went to a Pearl Jam show in Boston wearing a fake mullet wig, glasses, a blue hat and a hooded sweatshirt so that he wouldn't be recognized."
The Globe's Nick Cafardo wrote this week that some questioned where Epstein's priorities are. "Criticize Epstein, if you must, for his team construction, his moves (or lack thereof)," Cafardo wrote. "But please, spending two hours at a Pearl Jam concert makes you angry?"
Tip of the cap to Big League Stew for uncovering the disguise.
