Some wild-haired crazy man hijacked the Red Sox’s official Twitter account (pic)


On Wednesday, regular followers of the official Twitter account of the Boston Red Sox were likely taken aback a bit if they noticed that the account’s avatar was not the traditional BoSox logo but instead the image of some wildman with unkempt hair and a ratty goatee.

But any fears of some hostile takeover by some unstable, weirdo Red Sox fan were unwarranted and soon allayed, as it was quickly discovered that the man whose image became the Red Sox’s Twitter account avatar was none other than the team’s new closer, Joel Hanrahan.

And given the few tweets he did offer up on Wednesday, he didn’t do half bad with his assignment. Well done, crazy-haired closer guy.
