TOMS RIVER - The punishment for an Ocean County pizza man who finished last in his fantasy football league included a very public walk of shame and a pair of women's underwear.

Angelo Boemio, 42, marched down Route 9 in Toms River wearing only pink women's bikini bottoms and sneakers while hoisting a sign signifying his fantasy football misfortune.

The pizzeria owner strolled along the highway for 10 minutes on Labor Day, inducing hilarity and horror in pedestrians and motorists.

“My wife wasn’t happy that morning when I was doing it,” Boemio says. “She just said ‘I don’t want to see it. I don’t want to hear about it.’”

Boemio says that since he’s known for about six months what his punishment would be, he lost some weight for the occasion. He says he slimmed down to 290 pounds from 320.

Boemio says that people honked their horns and a woman with four children in her minivan drove back and forth five times as the kids laughed at his display.

He says police also called his business to tell them they were getting calls from concerned citizens.

Boemio says he blames Peyton Manning for his loss.

“It was a game he got me negative seven points. Had I played no quarterback that day I wouldn't be in this situation,” he says.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
