With the Boston Red Sox set to begin the World Series on Tuesday, much of the conversation right now is centered around piercings — just as we all predicted.

Chris Sale deadpanned that the stomach illness a week ago that landed him in Massachusetts General Hospital was due to a belly-button ring. That proved to be a joke, one that the Red Sox Twitter account delighted in making light of Sunday afternoon.

But it appears Sale isn’t the only Red Sox player cracking wise about piercings. Sunday afternoon, Sox second baseman Ian Kinsler joked that he would get a nipple piercing if Boston won it all.

Now there’s some incentive to win.

While Kinsler was just joking (we think), it would be pretty funny to see him have to put his money where his mouth is if the Red Sox do win the Fall Classic.
