If you’re not drunk in Las Vegas for New Years, you’re not doing it right – at least, that’s what the underoo’s I picked up at the Las Vegas airport say. And ironically enough, San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo must feel the same way (though, I’m not sure if he shares the same pair of bitchin’ roo’s).
According to TMZ, Mr. “I just look illegal” had a bit too much to drink to ring in the new year which resulted in a bit of a temper tantrum in one of Vegas Airport’s terminals:
"Law enforcement sources tell us, the San Francisco Giants pitcher was detained by cops because he couldn’t provide the proper ID to clear security.We’re told Romo then got into it with a TSA agent — becoming “angry and aggressive.” Cops then swooped in and cuffed him.Romo was taken to the police station at the airport , where he was cited for violating airport rules and then released. Romo was not allowed to fly following the incident, and was subsequently escorted off airport grounds.According to law enforcement sources, Romo appeared to be under the influence."
Guess we can chalk that up to Romo’s first blown save of the season – which according to that other Romo, is far better than a fourth quarter interception.
Oh no he didn’t.
