Check Out Glen Perkins’ Sweet New Goalie Mask

I’m not sure who started the trend of awarding themselves (or a teammate) a WWE-style championship belt after a job well done…but I think it was four-time NBA All-Star Rasheed Wallace. Over the years, the tradition has gotten so mainstream, that the sports entertainment giants have even gotten involved. In 2013, following their Cy Young Aaward winning seasons, both Max Scherzer...
