Okay. I don't normally write about sports on here, but I saw something so WTF this week that I not only had to broach the topic, I also had to start a new post category because my horror could not be contained.
Maybe you've heard from the football fans in your life that a guy named Ben Roethlisberger was recently accused of sexual assault for the second time in a year. Now, I'm not here to discuss whether he's guilty or innocent (so let's not even go there), but it was decided a few days ago that charges wouldn't be filed against him. He then gave a statement to the media looking like THIS:
Nope! That doesn't look like a guy who'd attack you in a public bathroom at all! Completely trustworthy.
I'd like to point out that when he spoke to the media about the first accusation, he wore a suit like a normal person. This time around, however, he wore a greasy half-mullet that accentuates his forthcoming male-pattern baldness, several days of stubble, and a polo shirt.
Look, if you're trying to shine that tarnished image, dressing like a sleazy used car salesman (or--don't make me say it!) is a giant step in the wrong direction. Just so you know.
