Things in sports that annoy me: Baseball players who pull their pant legs down

Okay, sure. This may sound petty. But it annoys me when baseball players pull the legs of their pants all the way down to their ankles.

First of all, it reminds me of those nimrods who wear jeans when they play softball. Secondly, it just looks dumb.

The pulled-down pants lookCheck out Vlad Guerrero here. I don’t know about you, but this isn’t exactly an athletic look. Kinda looks like he’s wearing pajamas. And it just looks so drab, all that gray.

Maybe he does this so he doesn’t have to wear socks. Sort of a California Casual look.

Now a much cooler look can be demonstrated by Reed Johnson of the Cubs. Check out this old school get up:

Gotta dig the old school look.
Me personally? I dig the 70s look, where guys displayed a lot of white. Check out ex-Angel Bobby Grich here:
Stretch those babies!

Stretch those babies!

When I was in Little League, I used to cut up my stirrups and stretch them as far as I could so that basically all you had was a string.  But for some reason, socks have changed and — quite frankly — it’s sad.
