Ah, the perks of being a professional athlete!
No, I’m not talking about the fame, or the fortune, or the ability to turn both into an annual vacation to Churchill Downs as a guest of some famous horse breeder/owner.
Whether it’s NBA players walking into the arena (Exhibit A: Westbrook, Russell), baseball players being hazed as rookies (Exhibit B: Rays, Tampa Bay), or Tom Brady and Vince Wilfork going to the Kentucky Derby, being able to wear whatever the hell you want and call it “fashion” is definitely an overlooked bonus of playing in one of the Big Four sports leagues. How else do you explain the straw hat perched on Brady’s head, or Wilfork’s matching aquamarine shirt and pants cuffs?
