The Patriots’ quirkiest player is visiting kids and spreading some good vibes at Boston Children’s hospital today in a Pokemon costume.

If the story about Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas shooting some hoops last week with a kid playing by himself made you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, then you’ll get a double dose of the warm fuzzies once you see what Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is doing today.

Patriots players frequently drop by Boston Children’s Hospital and visit with the kids, and today Martellus Bennett not only went to visit, but he did it in style.

This is the same guy that, less than 48 hours ago, was ruining the lives of various Cardinals as a blocker, and now Bennett’s putting a unique twist on the Patriots’ hospital visits with a getup that fans of the older Pokemon games and new-school fans alike should appreciate.

Well done, Marty, well done.
