Sports Illustrated asked its audience to help select the best dressed player in the NBA from a choice of 5 basketball stars via their Facebook page. I liked the question, but simply filling in a circle didn't capture all that I want to say. You can't limit me to a bubble, SI.com. I must speak!
The nominees, as selected by SI.com are:
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was excited to arrive in Dallas on Monday for the 2011 Super Bowl. Who wouldn't be? It's the game every professional football player fights to get into each sesaon.
Football talk on Women's Wear Daily--not a pairing you'd expect to see. However, I stumbled upon a little gem on the Mensweek section of WWD that did exactly that. They featured a "Rating the Quarterbacks" piece, ranking the top ten quarterbacks in the NFL based on a variety of factors. Level of play counted for less than half of the overall score. How fun!
While watching a game I don't care to speak of ever again this past weekend, I decided that I needed to hate San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers more and lay off Tom Brady for a bit. As soon as I made this decision, news of Brady going to a hair clinic to investigate options for hair plugs hit the internet. I was nice. I said nothing about how the thought of a balding Tom Brady filled my heart with happiness and light. But I am only human. When news broke that Tom Brady was the new face and feet for UGG Australia, the snarky comments began writing themselves.
I am not fully awake and therefore may not be seeing this correctly. However, I could swear that I just saw LeBron James giving a post game interview wearing a backpack. Really? A grown man? A GIANT grown man, in fact? With a backpack on while sitting in front of a microphone? Noo.
Despite coming off of a loss to the Jets, New England Patriot Randy Moss' press conference last week was calm and relatively sane. But he still had on the giant headphones. I tried to find a still but have thus far been unsuccessful. Still, you can witness the choice of accessories here.
