Sky News published a photo today of Mohammed Emwazi, the London man believed to be the ISIS executioner known as "Jihadi John," in an old college photo wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap. Thankfully, the team made a statement saying that they do not support Emwazi. Phew.
Here's the Pirates' statement condemning the actions of a majnoon who had happened to purchase one of their hats, via CBS Pittsburgh:
The classic gold P stands for Pittsburgh and is worn by our players, coaches and fans with a great sense of pride. It is absolutely sickening to everyone within the Pirates organization, and to our great fans, to see this murderer wearing a Pirates cap in this old photo.
Well, I know I'm at ease, now.
