FACT: The TSA hates beards. (Photo by Joe Fury)
Giants closer Sergio Romo, despite being relatively recognizable by his giant beard and World Series ring still, it turns out, has to provide ID in order to be able to fly. Which seems to be something he wasn’t aware of. He’s probably the guy leaving his bags unattended or accepting strange packages from random people in the Delta line, too.
Romo was detained by the TSA and is facing a misdemeanor summons for failing to provide ID at McCarran on New Year’s Day. At least his first plan to show the gate agent a baseball card was a good one. It just probably shouldn’t have been a Barry Zito card.
