Epstein graciously declines prom invitation

Boston general manager Theo Epstein won't be escorting the Cape Elizabeth High School seniors, who recently went to the Red Sox spring training complex with two handwritten signs, one that read: "Will you go to prom with me?"

After Epstein took a break and talked to the girls, the potential of a prom date was written about in newspapers and featured on radio and TV, including ESPN.

In unrelated news, the girls instead are taking somebody in a gorilla costume to their prom.
