Fashion Offense: Brian Wilson
It's moments after the Phillies 3-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Phillies fans are hopeful but concerned. The team is down 2-1 in the NLCS series and the team has two more games to play in San Francisco. There is no more room for error.
All of this said, I sit in my living room, shell-shocked. Traumatized at the loss. And more than that, horrified at the likes of what appeared on our television screen. The appearance of San Francisco closer Brian Wilson. Or more specifically, Brian Wilson's beard. His beard looks like it's been colored by a black magic marker. Why would he do this to himself ? How can he think that this looks good?

One word: Eww. Then there is his ridiculous hair. What exactly is that in the back? Here is a side view:
But wait--it gets worse. In looking for pictures for this post, I came across an earlier Brian Wilson look. Quite different, but equally as bad. I did not realize the man was from the Jersey Shore.
We have learned an important lesson. No matter what Brian Wilson chooses to do with himself, it will be wrong. And it will look awful.
