You know what? I think sometimes athletes dress like jerks.
And understand, this is coming from me. One time, I was walking down the street, and I heard these two women talking, and one said: “There’s a difference between, like, CLOTHING and FASHION, you know?” and I (wanted to) scream “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!” Case in point, I think I have five shirts. And if one’s wrinkled, guess what? One of them is getting reused doing the work week. “But Brian, why don’t you just iron your shirt?” You might ask. Well, smart guy, because irons and iron boards could cost upwards of dozens of dollars, and last time I checked, I wasn’t the King of France. Wait, hold on a sec.
…turns out France isn’t a monarchy anymore. So, yeah, not me.
But, while I dress like a schlub, even I’m not silly enough to attempt these sartorial train wrecks. Here are the five worst athlete fashion decisions.
5. Metta World Peace Supports Jason Collins… in a Cookie Monster T-Shirt
Absolute silliness, right? But, it’s Metta World Peace. This is a man who legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. So, he’s already going to be kind of a strange dude. But he took his cuckoo to a whole new level shortly after Jason Collins came out of the closet.
Now, MWP announced his support of Jason Collins’ announcement, which is pretty radical. But then he announced that the reason he was wearing a Cookie Monster shirt was that people should feel free to be who they want to be. (He then followed it up by saying he was going to wear the Cookie Monster pants, but was scared that he was going to be judged, which is basically the exact opposite of everything he was saying in the first place). So, Cookie Monster t-shirt = supporting the world’s first Big 4 gay athlete. Does that make sense? In Metta World Peace’s mind, it does.
