I’m not the person you want to get fashion advice from. I’m chubby and I almost always wear sweats or jeans and a baggy t-shirt. Even to church. But, I’m going to give you some anyway. Or at least comment on some fashion tidbits I’ve noticed recently as they relate to the world of sports.
1) Headbands are all the rage. It’s all RGIII’s fault. Griffin, rookie quarterback for the Washington Redskins, would always wear one in his postgame press conferences. People started talking about them. Apparently they were designer headbands. Who knew they made designer headbands? They bantered about RGIII’s headbands one day on NFL AM. Actually it felt like they devoted an entire segment to them but it probably wasn’t that long. It just felt like it was. Now I see headbands everywhere. I never noticed them before. Tonight while watching an NBA game it seemed like half the players were wearing headbands. I guess that is okay. I mean they do serve a purpose. RGIII is so influential not only can he handle hikes he can also hock headgear. Get him another endorsement deal pronto.
2) NBA dancers (or cheerleaders) change their outfits at least 10 times a game. Why? I mean I probably shouldn’t complain. They always look great in them, which is the point. But it is also the point that they look good in everything, that is why they are cheerleaders. So you don’t really need them to change clothes every timeout. Save some money. We’re going to pay attention to them anyway. We’re men.
3) The Sacramento Kings are sporting a retro 90’s jersey right now. I really like it. The Kings colors are purple, white and black. Purple is my favorite color so I am already predisposed to liking their uniforms. But the mid 90’s version has a black and white checkerboard design down both sides of the uniform. It is very cool looking against the purple. Again, as you learned in the first paragraph, I am not a fashion expert. But the old jerseys look snazzy. Since the Kings don’t win much any positive reason to watch them is appreciated.
When it comes to fashion that’s really all I got. Be glad about that.
